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).

  • I love how safety-minded this car seat is! Plus the fabric doesn’t contain chemical flame retardants! I love that the Rear-facing weight limit is so high! My 4.5 year old is still rear-facing! Nov 15, 2017

    It's really pretty and super solid but extremely hard to clean. Nov 08, 2017

  • Safe, comfortable. My son is still happy rear facing in it. He is, almost 3, 32 lbs 32 inches tall. We have a mirror so we can see him and he can have an additional view. Get a light seat for travel. Oct 27, 2017

  • I love this seat. It is easy to install, has a great wipeable material, looks good, and sits my son up high so he can see out the window. It has extended rear seating criteria. We love it. Oct 18, 2017

    Because this seat is so narrow, my child had difficulty getting comfortable in this seat - so much so that we replaced it. Also hard to keep clean as cover cannot be removed and washed easily. Oct 09, 2017

  • So easy to clean and my kids feel comfortable! I love that it reclines if they fall asleep! Best carseat ever! Sep 07, 2017

  • I love love love this car seat. From everything to the easy install to the weight and height limits for rear facing. The only cons would be the weight of the seat and the price. Aug 24, 2017

  • My baby loves to be able to see out the windows! This seat is HEAVY but it feels safe and sturdy. Plus we got a sweet blue and white one that I love to look at! Aug 08, 2017

  • This is an amazing car seat. It is sturdy and safe. It was recommended to me by the car seat lady due to the safety aspects. It is a very heavy car seat so you would need to leave it in one car. SAFE Jul 26, 2017

    The safest car seat available. My daughter is so comfortable in her seat. She loves road trips. Jul 23, 2017

  • Much easier to install than people say (took us less time than our other car seat). Love how narrow it is while also being extremely well rated for safety! Worth every penny we spent on it. Con: Heavy Jul 06, 2017

  • they are not lying when they claim this is the mother of all car seats. it is very heavy and expensive but its worth it! gorgeous design and super sturdy, i feel my child is safe just by looking at it Jun 30, 2017

  • 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

  • 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.
