    Good for the price but very comfortable as far as cushioning goes. On the market for a new one now Feb 20, 2020

  • Bought two of these for grandparents cars. My kiddo seems comfortable but I wouldn't purchase this for a car she rides in consistently. Feb 06, 2020

  • Best purchase by far. This has gone with us in taxis, airplanes and trains. Lightweight, cover slips off easily, machine washable, great travel car seat. Just bought a second one for baby number 2 Feb 06, 2020

  • This is the lightest, easiest to install ever. It's so easy to clean As Well. A great seat for travel in airplanes or cars! Feb 01, 2020

  • We hated this seat! The plastic felt cheap and flimsy And it was nearly impossible to get a good install. The straps dig into our kids necks. We did not keep this seat. Jan 24, 2020

  • This seat is by far the easiest seat for airplane travel. Forward and rear facing, easy enough install in plane one you have practiced a few times and super lightweight! Lasted until 2.5 years old. Jan 20, 2020

  • Lightweight and easy to travel with but install and actually using the straps to secure child was somewhat cumbersome. Jan 17, 2020

    This is our "travel car seat". Great on planes as it is only about 7 lbs. My daughter falls asleep in it because it is slightly more reclined then our Safety1st car seat. Cant beat the price! Jan 14, 2020

  • The seat itself is alright, difficult to adjust the height on the straps and the cupholder is worthless. Wouldn't recommend for an everyday seat but it is alright for our spare. Jan 14, 2020

  • love it compact size Jan 03, 2020

  • Great option for travel, narrow, lightweight, easy to install, and best of all cheap! We got this to travel with and for use in our second car. We don't use as a primary seat though. Dec 19, 2019

  • My nieces had these. They feel safe and secure and aren't to expensive. Down side is they are not very comfortable . Dec 16, 2019

  • Cheap car seat price wise and it serves its purpose but it doesn’t feel super safe or sturdy. Dec 14, 2019

  • Super low limits and bare bones basic but a great budget seat Nov 28, 2019

    Got this as an extra for when my mom keeps my son. It's easy to install and easily fits in her minivan, but not my Honda Civic. The padding is almost non-existent and the straps are a pain to tighten. Nov 24, 2019

  • I had two. I fit one RF on a diono angle adjuster next to a Graco snugride 35 in a base. Tight, but they fit! It's a bit wobbly RF, but still a great seat for a nanny (me) or for small cars (also me). Nov 22, 2019

  • It's compact enough to fit 3 in a row on the back row but the padding is minimal on this seat. It's not as comfortable as other seats out there in the market. I would not recommend this product. Nov 07, 2019

  • Light weight , great for travel and fits on most airplanes. Nov 05, 2019

  • We use this car seat in my mom’s car. There’s nothing fancy about it but it gets the job done. For less then $100 I can’t complain. Nov 04, 2019

  • Lightweight and great for travel! Easy to install and was easy to carry through airport. Oct 26, 2019

  • This is the #1 travel carseat you will find in blogs. It is extremely light and great for lugging around the airport. However, it is SO difficult to tighten that we have given up on it. Oct 18, 2019

  • We used this seat as a backup and for travel, but it could easily be used everyday. Lightweight and fits in the smallest of spaces, this seat is one of the best bargains out there. Oct 18, 2019

  • Cosco seats are some of my favorite seats to install. We use the scenera as a travel seat/spare. It’s not a super tall harness so it doesn’t last long but for $50 it’s a great seat. Oct 04, 2019

  • We had a small car and needed the smallest convertible car seat we could find. This is it, and it fit. With that said, it is a very basic car seat, difficult to install and buckle the child in. Sep 16, 2019

  • GREAT travel seat! Super lightweight and easy to transport. Price is on point for this specific reason. Not very comfortable, no bells and whistles, but it gets the job done :) Aug 26, 2019

  • We have this carseat and works fine, great price but only goes up to 40lbs and not much padding. It also lacks any extra inserts for smaller babies. Jul 29, 2019

  • I keep this as a backup car seat. Just in case my brother or another family member needs to drive my kid somewhere. Jul 29, 2019

  • We use this as our travel/backup car seat to quickly adapt into the nanny's car, grandma's car, when we're flying somewhere on vacation. Worth every penny. Easy and quick to install and so lightweight Jul 28, 2019

  • I'm not the biggest fan of this carseat the straps are really hard to adjust and everytime I go to buckle my son in it seems to be really tight. Jul 26, 2019

  • Good budget seat. We use it for travel and backup. No bells and whistles but all car seats pass the same safety tests and it is an excellent lightweight choice for traveling Jul 26, 2019

    Lightest, most practical travel car seat! We use the clek everyday but this is a must have bc it’s so light for air travel- we paid overages to travel with our britax overseas! Jul 11, 2019

  • For rear facing not a fan, sits very low and almost as if my daughter is laying down not sitting. Forward facing is better. Plus: good price and small size for an extra seat for the babysitter. Jul 05, 2019

  • Lightweight, fit newborn comfortably with infant insert and provide plenty room when baby is bigger. Baby doesn't sweat as much in this one compare to other infant car seat. Rear and front facing Jun 25, 2019

  • Ok but great for the price. Tricky install and very basic but if your in a pinch , you can't beat the price. Jun 18, 2019

  • This is a great travel car seat! It’s very light and easy to install. My son used this for a 10+ hour flight and slept almost the whole way. May 30, 2019
