Our friends at The Car Seat Lady swear by this seat, and with good reason: not only is it super safe - performing better than any other seat in Consumer Reports’ recent crash test - it’s also easy to install securely and is lightweight and compact. Because it installs securely sans base, it's perfect for an urban parent who relies on taxis to get around. Using the MaxiCosi adapters, it's compatible with almost any stroller. Be warned, though: the sun shade is pretty tiny, but you can remedy that by adding the SnoozeShade.

  • Lightweight and compact, I miss this seat compared to the Nuna Pipa I have this time. Sep 11, 2019

  • We purchased Anton Cloud Q since it is compatible with our Silver Cross adapters. The stability bar broke 1 month in. Getting our son in-and-out of car became a huge tasks due to position of handle. Jul 17, 2019

    Very well desined, my baby fall right to sleep. It is kind of heavy for me though. Jul 06, 2019

  • This seat is so heavy and cumbersome to get in and out of the car! We got it because it has a small footprint in our Volvo wagon. But it was donated after the last babe outgrew it! Apr 12, 2019

  • I can’t stand that the buttons to lower the bar are on both sides, needing both hands to operate, a luxury parents rarely have. It’s also difficult to loosen and tighten the straps. Fits a small car. Feb 06, 2019

    We have the Aton Q (compatible with the Aton 2 base) and it is great for travel. It fits on our Uppababy Vista with the Maxi Cosi clips so we use it all the time. Jan 02, 2019

    It's nice, but the foam inside cracked Nov 29, 2018

    Easy to carry and install but not as easy to get into the stroller. Jul 13, 2018

  • This was the best infant car seat ever, easy to wash, loved the no rethread harness and our kids were so comfy in it. Loved the load leg too with the base Jun 25, 2018

  • I like this car seat, but there are a few cons. You have to use two hands to raise and lower the carrying handle, the adapters for the stroller are a bit wobbly and hard to disconnect. Oct 31, 2017

  • We had this for baby 2. I loved it. Sadly it was in our car when totaled. Feb 02, 2017

  • The safety of the seat is top rated. Some things I don't like are the shade is pretty useless. Jan 06, 2017

  • simple and light weight Nov 03, 2016

  • I have an incredibly short backseat (the legroom is non-existant). This was the only infant seat I found that would fit. It's fairly light and easy to clean but the sun shade is not that useful. Oct 05, 2016

  • You cannot beat the safety of this seat. Pricy but well worth every penny. Has held up excellently through my 2 and is being used for my nephew and soon our 3rd. Easy to take apart and clean. Sep 14, 2016

  • Nice and light weight. Fits in even subcompact cars! May 22, 2016

    Comfortable, easy to install with base. Wish the canopy was bigger. May 16, 2016

  • compact, sleek & safe. What more could you ask for?! Jan 18, 2016

  • good safety ratings & is somewhat smaller/lighter, and easy click. bought the base for both cars to make mornings faster. straps easy to adjust. Sep 14, 2015

  • I use this on my stroller every day. Simple, beautiful design and cozy seat for my little one. I just wish the visor had an extension for blocking out more sun. Jun 18, 2015

  • Super easy to install. lightweight and love the design. May 13, 2015

  • Love this car seat. We live in the city and it's a snap to get it in and out of cabs, and is very safe to belt the seat in (instead of using the base). Oct 28, 2014

  • Perfect for getting around NYC. Light to carry and easy to get in and out of cabs and rental cars. We used in UPPAbaby. Only negative is it does not provide enough shade. Aug 11, 2014

  • Need flexibilty. Fits on Bugaboo C3 with adapter, able to use without base in car, small frame. One negative is the visor is too short. Jul 29, 2014

  • Love this easy to use seat. Just wish the canopy was a little bigger. Jul 19, 2014

  • We love how light this car seat is. Only thing we don't like is the canopy. May 12, 2014

  • Love everything about this car seat except the sun shade. It's not that great. But it definitely shouldn't be a deal breaker for anyone. I would buy it again. Apr 29, 2014

    I have the Aton 2 version but I absolutely love it. It seems to be one of the smallest and lightest on the market. Mar 01, 2014

  • For twins these are wonderful. Very light weight and snap right into our City Select stroller. The only thing is they do get a bit hot - the material. Feb 13, 2014

  • Very lightweight - perfect for City Moms Nov 01, 2013

  • Excellent car seat- BUT does not fit into a snap and go frame- it just straps into the frame which is very unsteady and kind of dangerous in my opinion. Only good as a car seat- not as part of snap+go Oct 25, 2013

  • I have this except for mine is fushia, and purple. SO pretty, and so teeny for my newborn... Easy to install and safe! Sep 11, 2013

  • I love this Car Seat! You should definitely get one! Jun 25, 2013
