  • This seat was great as a cheaper option for long distance traveling in a spare vehicle. I wouldn’t use this every day but it was a great option to have for back up. Very inexpensive also. Oct 07, 2021

    We love this for traveling but would not use it for normal day-to-day commutes. The quality is pretty low but for cost, it's pretty great Oct 06, 2021

  • Very basic, no frills seat. Not a ton of padding or fancy kickoffs, but it is so lightweight and narrow it’s great fit travel or small spaces. It won’t last a super long time, but very inexpensive Oct 06, 2021

  • Great for a back up Sep 13, 2021

  • Bottom of the barrel option. Getting a good install takes a lot of effort and Baby was uncomfortable. Hardly any padding and no extras. Cheap but still not worth it to me. Sep 09, 2021

  • Perfect travel/second car seat! So lightweight! straps can get a little twisted/hard to tighten, but overall it's really convenient Aug 24, 2021

  • We use this as our travel car seat, on the plane, in the rental etc. It's very light and you can buy separately a backpack to put it in so you don't have to carry it in your hands on the airport. Aug 02, 2021

  • Honestly for every child I have had except my youngest they have used these seats. Exact model just different skin. In my opinion I love how they have a recline to them keeps my kids head comfortable. Jun 10, 2021

    It's not my favorite. My son is only 23lbs and the straps are getting extremely tight Jun 05, 2021

    It’s simple and not awkward to move like a lot of car seats. But it’s not super comfortable for the kids, and it was a little hard to install. But fine for the price. May 29, 2021

  • Love this as a travel car seat! My mom uses them in her car for short trips! The price is unbeatable and they secure very well! We own two and will likely purchase more for the twins! May 17, 2021

  • I use this as a spare and it works great for travel purposes. So when we travel and rent a car, we don’t have to rent a car seat either. May 07, 2021

  • Best lightweight travel car seat! I actually get a large circle ring and attach this car seat to a carryon luggage with the latch system and carry it through the airport like that! May 06, 2021

  • Great as a secondary seat for grandma and grandpa or travel! Apr 21, 2021

    Kinda flimsy thin plastic and very thin padding! This is our emergency back up seat ONLY! not super easy to install or loosen any straps.. not my favorite Apr 18, 2021

  • I will be using this when we travel by plane. It is light weight enough for gate check that I can carry it myself. Apr 03, 2021

  • Decent car seats for the price point. Apr 01, 2021

  • It's cheap, good for grandparents car but not an everyday thing Mar 12, 2021

  • Perfect for flying Mar 04, 2021

  • These aren't safe. After watching crash tests of this seat on YouTube I can't put my child in this in a car. Its not worth it. And Don't use it as a "Spare" or "Grandparent's" seat, they can crash too Feb 27, 2021

  • It is $39 for a reason, but easy for travel and light. If something happened to it on a trip, it could be easily replaced without consternation about the price Feb 13, 2021

  • We were given one, and we've never used it because it offers nothing in terms of cushioning both for safety reasons and comfort. It's also THE WORST to install. This is technically a car seat... Feb 04, 2021

  • This is a no frills seat, we LOVE to fly with this seat. It fits nicely on the plane rear facing and is lightweight to easily carry through the airport! I recommend this for flying often! Feb 02, 2021

  • For us, it's perfect to have as a spare because it is so lightweight. I actually bought this one just to fly because I didn't want to take the chance of loosing an expensive seat. Jan 22, 2021

    We had this as an extra car seat for grandparents to keep in their car . Worked well for an extra no frills car seat . Never involved in a car accident so can’t tell you how it would do during that Jan 20, 2021

    I love how lightweight this is--perfect for traveling and easy to lug through an airport and install in a plane! Dec 22, 2020

  • I absolutely hated this car seat we got it as an extra because we do have multiple cars. I felt so unsafe putting my child in it. Used it twice before it was out the door. Nov 26, 2020

  • It is so lightweight and easy to install. Great for travel especially if you bring to the airport. Sep 16, 2020

  • My daughter has this car seat and she doesn't really like it. it is an uncomfortable car seat without much padding. It is a big hassle taking it apart to clean and putting it back together. Aug 15, 2020

  • we have this as our travel carseat as it is super light and easy to install Aug 13, 2020
