We chose this carseat as it was recommended highly by a family member, and we wanted a seat that could be used for a good few years, rather than having to buy a different 'group' car seat every year or two.
It was around £100, and the other seat we bought for occasional use at £30 is utter tat compared to this one!
It's attractive to look at, ours is black and red, and the 5 point safety harness is well padded, so little one is comfy when strapped in. The headrest is also well padded and sturdy, it just feels excellent quality. It is easy to clip and little one has never 'found' his own way out of it. My only criticism would be it is difficult to slot the two sides of the harness together to clip, whereas other carseats this is made easier. However, it's a very small point.
It is suitable from 9-36kg, so around 9 months to 12 years. We started using it at 9 months and the head height was perfect (unlike the cheap one we have for occasional use, which took ages for little one to grow in to). The head height is extendable so you can adjust it as your child grows. As your child gets older you use it with a normal seatbelt instead of the 5 point harness. One feature we really like is you can recline it slightly, perfect for longer journeys when little one needs a good sleep.
The covers are easily removable and washable which is helpful, as most toddlers enjoy mashing breadsticks in to everything in sight!
We are expecting another baby and when they need their first forward facing carseat, this will be the one we will buy.
Another excellent product by Britax.
