Rest easy, great car seat
April 8, 2014
I have used this car seat since my daughter graduated from her bucket seat at age 6 months. For the past 9-months, I have uninstalled and installed in three different vehicles without any hassle. My primary vehicle this seat this is mostly installed (rear facing) in is a compact car; the only downside is that we can only place it in the rear middle seat using a seat belt, which isnt a big deal since this is the safest place for her. This seat is heavy, but I don't mind knowing that it's built for safety in mind. She is happy in this seat; there are removable infant supports as well as removable toddler support. Easy to adjust seat belt harness tightness for safety, as well changing the seat belt to the right shoulder slot for the proper height is easy. We did order the angle pad, but havent needed to use this yet. Easy to install rear facing with the tether strap and anchor strap that came with it. Love the shoulder belt pads, no more seat belts rubbing her neck where other seats left marks. Disadvantages: Heavy No over the shoulder carry strap with this seat or if it does I was unclear on where it is. Tall back rest, not suitable for sub-compact cars (rear facing only) Overall, I'm glad I bought this car seat as the primary seat in my car and I would highly recommend this seat, but as I do need another seat, I wouldn't purchase another one like this as a secondary. I do travel occasionally and I need to take the car seat and this would be too heavy for me to deal with as well as a stroller, luggage and a toddler all on my own. It would be easier to leave in the car when traveling and not have to worry about installing after a long trip.
