Seriously?  Is this seat legit?

Seriously and truly :-)    I've corresponded with the maker, and I own two.   It earned an IIHS 'best bet' rating, passed all applicable crash testing even in the simulated event of a 'deflation' of the seat during the accident, and it positions the belt absolutely beautifully.  It's easy enough for any kid 6+ to use by themselves.  I frequently send it to school with my 7 year old.  It fits discreetely in the bottom of his backpack when it's rolled up, and I don't have to worry that there won't be enough room for him in a sedan that all ready has two other kids in boosters.  



Really a great option for car-pool/taxis/travel etc.

And after that enthusiastic review I feel compelled to say I don't work for the company, and I paid full price for both of my seats. LOL.

I am personally less enthusiastic -- my leggy and curvy-hipped almost 10yo does not find it comfortable -- but I agree that it is completely legit and safe to use.

I agree, it's small, and definitely not well fitted for big kids.  I wouldn't use it for a full time seat in any case.

Wow!  That's a pretty awesome invention, then.

 

Thanks!
