Disadvantages: a tad pricey
Ever since Jessie was born I have been unhappy with the car seats we have had, I had the first one free with my travel system but later found it would only fit the seat belt in one of our 3 cars which wasn't ideal, I brought another stage 0 car seat that fitted better but always looked wrong in the car as I couldn't get one to match the seats in the car, whilst looking at getting a car seat for the next stage I decided I wanted something that matched my seats in my car as it was going to be a permanent fixture in there for a very long time and decided to see if I could get one to match exactly and seen as I have recaro seats it seemed the obvious choice to choose one of there car seats.
Retailing at around £150 it is quite expensive for a car seat but with my car being quite old I wanted something that had all the additional safety so to me this seemed like a great option, it has a fully adjustable head rest and back piece with side protectors that are relay well padded compared to other seats I looked at, The covers are available in a lot of colours to match your cars interior
The covers are fully removable and machine washable which is a must with young children as I have lost count of the amount of times I have struggled to sponge clean seats in the past with my other two children.
It has fitted seat belt tensioners just like the seat belts in modern cars have, it is very easy to fit into your car as it is secured by your own 3 point car seat belt and fits all cars no matter how short the belt is which is another bonus for me as my seat belts are quite short, the age range on the seat is from 9 months to twelve years so really for the price it is a good investment if it lasts you that long and you can buy replacement seat covers for it so no worries about it looking faded in the sun or tatty before the 11 years are up. It has a 5-point harness for group 1 but only a 3-point harness as the child gets older.
In my opinion this is a fantastic car seat, it is a little expensive as an initial lay out but is very good quality and will last a very long time plus I don't think I have seen any other car seat with as much safety in it as this one
Summary: a great seat
