The fabric was everything I was expecting. Very plush and soft. I was a little hesitant because I could not find it local to see and touch it, but I was not disappointed. I wish I had bought the angle adjuster when I bought the seat to save on shipping because for rear facing a non-infant you are going to want it, even in a roomy back seat. My only complaint, and it is more about the truck we are installing it in, the belt path for rear facing is very small and hard to navigate belt through. It was even more difficult to install locking clip. The harness strap covers take a little getting used to as they are much different than our other seats. The way the seat folds into itself is really nice feature for storage and storing in the trunk when you don't need it. This is a HEAVY seat, and what I expected for the price. You pay for extra safety features and superior engineering and construction. All seats pass minimum standards, but if you are looking for extra bells and whistles, this seat does not disappoint.
Pros:Soft, plush fabric and memory foam
narrow base allowing more room for other passengers
low profile for easy in and out and taller vehicles
4 cup holder positions to store drinks, snacks, toys for long trips
Cons:Small rear facing belt path
Best Uses:Extended rear facing
