This car seat is everything we hoped for! It looks even better in person than it did online. By far, the best part is the air pockets near the head. We watched crash tests of different car seats online before we made a decision. This is the ONLY car seat that protected the baby's head to our liking. All car seats should be required to have the air pockets! We purchased this about a month prior to writing this review. Our child is eleven months about approximately twenty three pounds. He fits in it comfortably on the lowest shoulder setting. It is easy to adjust to get the correct level of tightness. He does not look hunched over or squished at all. Plus, there is lots of room for him to grow! We purposely got a car seat with a higher weight limit, since our baby has been on the higher end of weights for his age. We want it to last him a long time, and keep him rear facing as long as possible. Installation was easier than infant car seats with a base. Fits great in our small car too. We would definitely recommend! So happy with our purchase!
