“ We love this car seat and plan on getting another one for our second daughter. It is very soft and comfortable for her and is very heavy duty. It's very heavy since it's made of steel. The only down side is that you have to take the seat out of the car to adjust the strap positioning which is not the case on the Evenflo Triumph Advance that we also own. Overall though,...” --CrunchyChristianMama
“ I bought this seat after much research. I love that my daughter can stay rear facing in it up to 40 pounds, love the heavy quality feeling of it, its sturdy build, the narrowness of it as I have a compact car. It feels like the quality item it is. What I do not like is the weight of it when i travel with it, or but the main thing I dont like is that it doesnt fit properly in my compact...” --kbvr
“ We got this carseat for my daughter when she outgrew the infant carseat that was given to us as a gift. I wish we had gotten this earlier. She fell asleep instantly in it. I love that the My Ride 65 can stay rearfacing until 40lbs. She is almost 3 and is still rearfacing. ” --MalloryBG
“This seat was highly rated in Baby Bargains, so we got it for my DD. I don't like it! Tightening the straps is easy, but loosening them is difficult. Traveling with this thing is a PAIN: it's very heavy and bulky, making it difficult to carry through an airport and install quickly on the plane. And cleaning it? Taking of the cover is a difficult, involved process, and somehow liquids and...” --Mosaic

“ I was lucky enough to have a big fellow at home and so I didn't have to get the infant seat before starting with the convertible. The built in infant cushion worked just fine for our purposes by the time we actually left the house with him.Actually, I was doubly lucky because a friend bought this for me and I didn't have to pay for it. She bought it for me because she so strongly recommended...” --Mommel
“ Our child outgrew his infant car seat way to fast, so we got this one that will hopefully last him till he's done. It goes from 5-35 lbs (rear-facing), 20-44 (front), 40-100 (booster seat). It had very high safety ratings and ease of use. Installation isn't the easiest and you need a big back seat to allow room for the reclining part of the rear facing features. I like the one-handed...” --mhemingson
“ Since I found out I was pregnant I had been looking for an organic car seat cover that completely replaced the VOC leaching one that comes with the car seat. Almost everything I found was just a cover that went over the original. I found a few replacements but they still used foam or recycled plastic. Then I found Nollie Covers I couldn't believe it, 100% organic cotton padded with 100%...” --KaraJMay
