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.

    So easy to get the child in and out of the seat. Comfortable seat and easy to use buckle. Jun 25, 2017

  • I love this seat. I feel like my kids are safe, they seem comfortable. I can get them in and out of seat easily without bumping their head! I'm a firefighter and did my research before the purchase! Jun 22, 2017

  • Narrow profile Jun 13, 2017

  • Narrow = good. Complicated install and too many usage rules = hard to use safely. Booster use also has rules that make it difficult to use, like a high min weight and the seatbelt guide doesn't move. Jun 12, 2017

  • Safety! Jun 07, 2017

  • I absolutely LOVE mine! Did so much research before we got it! Have the purple one! We extended rear faced my daughter who has long legs, this was perfect! She's nearly 5 and we still use it! Jun 07, 2017

  • I have two. One is nightmare and the other is just OK. Beast of a seat. Installation is nearly impossible. Harnesses are a pain. Lucky if you get a unit that the headwings stay up. May 24, 2017

  • This is by far my favorite brand of car seats, my daughter loves sitting in it and I am so happy it is rear facing. only complaint is that rear facing does not leave much room for seat in front of it. May 23, 2017

  • Spent so much time researching, these are fantastic safety wise. May 23, 2017

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.)
