As one weeSpring parent noted, this is the “Ferrari” of car seats. Sleek, stylish, and incredibly safe, it includes extended rear-facing capabilities for up to 50 lbs (~4 years old), well beyond the AAP’s recommendation to remain rear-facing until 2. Clek has the narrowest base out there (just 13 inches!) which makes it a cinch to install three-across, if needed.

The Catch: At $400+, it’s definitely an investment (also of note, in order to use it from infancy, you’ll need to purchase the infant insert, which is sold separately).

  • Perfect for extended rear-facing. Slim footprint fits easily in backseat. Jun 07, 2017

    We purchased this because of the many great reviews, safety features, and waterproof fabric. I love the fabric and how safe it is. My daughter does say it's a little hard in the seat after long drives May 24, 2017

  • The harness is smooth like butter and adjusts like a dream! The seat is very straightforward to install and doesn't require anywhere near as much work as others. The REACT technology is AMAZING!! 2 May 09, 2017

    I love this seat because it fits wonderfully extended rear facing in our compact car due to its high profile, three across seating capability, and it takes up less front to aft space.Easy to clean. Apr 14, 2017

  • hard to install rear facing, but amazing once it's forward facing. It's a little heavy for everyday in and out, but a good option if it's staying in the car regularly. Apr 12, 2017

  • Great looking convertible car seat that will work for us for years. We selected this product for extended rear facing and still have my son backwards after two. Its costly but worth the extra money. Mar 09, 2017

  • Very sturdy, great safety features, and the fabric is water repellent. Mar 09, 2017

  • Safety factor Mar 07, 2017

  • Love it's safety ratings, that it's non-toxic, made in North America, and that its 100% recyclable. Mar 07, 2017

  • So heavy. So expensive. So many parts. Can't even have a no re-thread harness for the price? Does not feel soft and comfy, it's very safe I'm sure but not my favorite. Feb 22, 2017

  • This was my first convertible car seat for my son. I love it and he does too. Plus if you have multiples you can fit 3 side by side. Which is amazing. I'm always telling everyone about my Clek Feb 16, 2017

  • Heavy and solid. Was hesitant because it received not the greatest reviews because the setup was tricky but my husband did it. I have moved it from one car to another without any problems whatsoever. Jan 04, 2017

  • Love love love this seat! I can't say enough about how wonderful and safe this seat is--definitely worth the price and the trip to a CPST to make sure it's installed correctly (do with any seat!) Dec 16, 2016

    This is more solidly built than the car it rides in. We have 2. Poor manual. Heavy and big. Its really tough to clean. Having a removable cover would be great. There are better options out there. Nov 21, 2016

    Love how modern and slim this seat is. Also love the moisture wicking fabric. Of course I mostly love how safe and sturdy this seat is. Oct 05, 2016

  • Such a wonderful seat! I love the way it looks and is perfect for my smaller car. Oct 04, 2016

  • I have two for my two oldest and shopping for my third Foonf. The safety is top rated and the design great. It is very heavy so switching cars on a daily basis may be tedious. Price is high Sep 20, 2016

  • Easy install. It's heavy and Hereford we don't travel with it but I believe it's the safest car seat out there. Sep 20, 2016

  • Love it! Looks great and seats our kid well! Have one in two cars. Felt the automotive engineering and Canadian design was worth the price for our child's safety. The materials are all very nice. Sep 13, 2016

  • The longevity and the baby grows with it from birth to 7 years old. Aug 04, 2016

    Switched to the Clek after using a different car seat and the Clek has been a game changer. Minus it being extremely heavy (so many safety features do that) there are no negative comments for it! Aug 02, 2016

  • This car seat is amazing! It is extremely safe, narrow enough to roll down an airplane aisle and install on a plane seat, can fit three across in a back seat, AND isn't an eyesore. Love it! Aug 02, 2016

  • I loved the color and the fact that had the infant insert which I was able to use right away because I had a big baby. Jul 08, 2016

  • From Clek

    At Clek we are all about the Ride. All kinds of rides, including the one through life. When we first started out on this journey we had a clear direction. Forward, but with different thinking. Because how you get there matters. Our thinking is design thinking. Not only products, but also experiences. Parenting comes with compromises. We get that. But we don’t believe you need to compromise when it comes to child passenger safety. Comfort, safety, convenience and style can co-exist without sacrifice. Easy task? Nope. An important one? Absolutely.
