Rated 4 out of 5 by Nyogen Too bad it isn't bigger!
Being Manhattanites who don't own a car, we've only used this seat without the base. Installed with just a lap belt, we can very easily and quickly get a fit where the seat doesn't budge and feels very safe.
I wish they made this to handle a baby up to 32" like the snugride 35. This is way more attractive than all other 35lb car seats out there and is very lightweight. Our munchkin has grown quickly since birth (90th percentile at 3 mo) and may very well grow out of this before he is 5 months old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mayaon Overall, very good infant car seat
We have been using the Mico for our son since he was born and we are quite pleased with it. I mostly use it with our Stokke Xplory stroller (with the adapter) and it is very user-friendly--very easy to take on/off when getting in and out of NYC cabs. We have also taken 2 flights with the Mico--it fits on the airplane seat nicely and securely (it is FAA-approved).
My only complaint about the Mico is that the canopy is completely inadequate for keeping the sunlight out of the baby's face and body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TooSweetMom Wow, what a life saver!
I love my Mico -- it's lightweight, easy to install, and my baby ooohs and coohs everytime we take a ride. The fabric is easy to keep clean, the harness adjustment works like a dream, and the canopy is ideal on sunny days. A perfect product at a great price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by CoolMom Not easy to adjust and awkward to hold
We bought the Maxi Cosi in gray because we thought it was the lightest on the market, and it definitely was the best looking. But it ended up being difficult to carry because of how the arm handle is positioned. And we found it hard to adjust. I don't think we will be using it for baby #2. Also, it didn't get the best ratings when I did more research (unfortunately, after we made the purchase).

Rated 4 out of 5 by ahmj A comfortable carseat (I think!)
It's lightweight and a nice comfortable seat for our baby (and safe!) the only thing I would change it shortening the handle length...it's hard to carry if you're short like me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by swy54 Lightweight, but hard to get out of the car.
Bought this seat because it was lightweight, but the awkward bent handle makes it very hard to carry, especially as baby gets heavier. Also, it's difficult and awkward to get out of the car. If your baby is on the larger side, it's kind of tight and makes it tough to get the harness on without rolling the baby around.
Overall I've been happy with it. I don't have experience with any other infant seat to compare it to, but this one did its job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by surfmom Sturdy, Lightweight
Great infant car seat! No troubles with the latch; getting the car seat in and out of the base is a breeze. Love the construct, the way it looks, and the fact that its lightweight yet sturdy. I use it with the Bugaboo Bee and have had people ask me about the car seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonMamaLovesGiggle Lightweight, easy to use
I don't understand the other reviews posted here about this car seat. This car seat is very easy to move in and out of the car, it releases with one pull on a lever at the back of the car seat and you simply lift the seat up from the base. No pulling or tugging... It's also easy for me to get my infant son in and out of it- the straps are easily adjustable and I don't have any trouble with the 5 point harness system. It's lightweight, and fits in the center backseat of my car- which the Graco Snugride 35 does not.
