Parents love that this seat can fit tiny 5lb infants as a rear-facing as well as much bigger kids (up to 120lbs!) as a booster. With a full steel alloy frame and aluminum reinforced side walls, this seat provides unparalleled safety. It also folds flat for travel, is FAA certified, and thanks to its narrow frame, you’ll be able to fit three across in most mid-sized vehicles, which makes this super popular amongst families with multiples.

The Catch: It’s pretty heavy, so even though it folds flat for easy transport, it’s a bear to lug around.

  • A great, safe steel frame seat but it's also very heavy. Bought because it's thin and we can fit 3X in our Subaru Forester. Sep 19, 2018

  • I did a lot of research before buying this car seat. It a good sturdy chair but other that that I hate it. If I could install them using the latch system in my car they are okay still wiggles a lot. Sep 13, 2018

  • This seat is so narrow. It’s easy to install. The cover is really easy to wash and put back on (which is a must when you have a kiddo with carsickness). My child says it’s super comfy too. Sep 13, 2018

  • Sturdy and slim car seat! I am able to fit one of these on the jumpseat of my odyssey and still move the seats forward. It it comfy, open and airy for my child. Sep 05, 2018

  • Love the quality and steel frame. The narrowness allows it to fit alongside my second carseat well. Con: the only place it fits rear facing with the wedge is the middle back w/ limited front seat sp Aug 29, 2018

    My children moved into these seats around 12 months of age and are still using them at 4 and 5 years old. They are comfortable and secure They take up a lot of room so not ideal for smaller vehicles. Aug 29, 2018

  • REALLY heavy and awkward. I bought it as our travel carseat since it folds up and I heard that airlines tend to beat up carseats, but this is just too heavy to carry around, even to check it! Aug 28, 2018

Everyone
  • Q: Does this carseat have a level on it and adjustable angle base?

    asked by Mollie B. - Jul 09, 2015

  • Q: Does this car seat work with the UppaBaby Vista stroller?

    asked by Secretly Expecting - May 04, 2014

  • No. This is a convertible seat and those are not designed for stroller compatibility. Only infant carriers are designed for portability and stroller compatibility.

    Courtney G. - May 04, 2014

  • No, this is not an infant only carseat, it's a convertible, so it stays in the car.

    Marisa G. - May 04, 2014

  • As people said this is a convertible car seat for after the infant one but I highly highly recommend it! I have two and absolutely love them! I have tried others and haven't liked them as much and my friends all wish they got dionos!

    Melissa P. - May 04, 2014

  • No, but if you're taking it to the airport, you can get a rolling luggage cart and strap the car seat to that. You can even let your kid ride on it through the airport. (so say my sources, I haven't tried.)
