I’m truly obsessed with this car seat!
We usually travel a lot (in non-COVID times) and have tried to use public transport to avoid a car seat past the infant stage, but it’s just not always doable. We finally purchased this and used it for a week-long trip to a rural location and I’m SO glad we have it for future trips!
With the travel case, it was incredibly easy (and comfortable!) to transport through airports, even with layovers. It went through the scanners and into the overhead bin with no problems.
It was quick to install in Ubers to/from the airport and in the rental car while there. DS was perfectly happy in it for the 2.5 hour drive to our Air BnB as well as daily driving for 45-90 minutes.
I know the price is a bit high, but in my opinion it’s more than worth it if you’ll be flying with a toddler more than 1-2 times. DS is somewhat tall for his age and at 3.5 years old, still has several inches before his shoulders max out the height. I anticipate getting two years of use out of it, which is not bad for a baby (well, toddler) product.
