I purchased this car seat before my son was born. It was on sale at Sears.com and I knew the Eddie Bauer was a great company already. It does great, especially for the price that was paid for it. My only problem is the belt. It does not extend with baby very far. Ease of Installation It was super easy to install and very easy to get in the car. We could not use the base because of how our SUV seat are. Child's Comfort As the baby got a couple of months older, I expected the belt to loosen a little better. Support and Safety Definitely safe and effective. Ease of Use Easy to use and carry. Design It has a very nice look. A head rest was included. Durability It is so easy to keep clean and damage-free. Nothing has broken, cracked, etc. Still in perfect condition.
