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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by star2xbk Really nice, but a few flaws
This car seat looks great and is super lightweight, which is key. A few issues we have with it: the locking component on the harness is VERY difficult to close, especially with a squirmy and crying baby. It's a fight to close it every time we get in the car. The second issue is the sun shade. It does not stay in place! My husband had to fashion a clip so that it will stay in place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mummyof2 Not what I was expecting
Bought anticipating a great, safe, realiable car seat that would also work with our bugaboo cameleon. After installing the car seat in the car it was very difficult to get in and out. Instead of one swift movement we were tugging and pulling in all different ways. We thought we were doing something wrong, and our friends who also own the seat stated that "yeah, we have the same problem sometimes". We didn't feel that the actual seat itself was built as strong as it should be. It felt very cheap. We ended up taking it into Giggle 2 days after our child was born and explaining our situation and found another car seat to suit our needs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anayahsmommy Would not be my first pick
This carseat is not light or does it have the ergonomical handle it claims to have. It was difficult to install even with the easy latch. We are not going to use ours the second time around. We are going to use the convertible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zebra82 Good buy minus a few details
I have the base for this carseat. I loved this carseat except for two things. The sunshade is fixed. Resulting in sun getting into my sons eyes and the handle is too small to hold hanging toys. They always fall down to one side.
A friend of mine has a Graco and the sunshade is easily moved to block the sun and the handle is thick enough to hold toys.
