After lots of research, I am SO pleased!
May 20, 2015
I spent lots of time(unaproximately 9 months) researching, debating, and testing out the many different options for car seat/stroller combinations.
This car seat has met & surpassed all my expectations.
I had a few worries before purchasing:
1. How the magnets would work with the canopy(if the canopy would detach due to weak magnets)
2. If the base would fit my BMW crossover safely
3. If the Scarlet color fabric was too daring
None of these things were an issue! The base was perfect in my BMW. I can see that it will adjust to many different seat angles/sizes. I use the stability leg with no problem on either the left or right seat and the seat barely wants to budge. It makes me feel super secure(most important). The magnets are strong and I have not had one issue with them detaching without me performing the action! I chose Scarlet because I thought it would be best to get a light color rather than dark(I live in the very hot and sunny Los Angeles), and also wanted something stylish. It pairs perfectly with my Slate Nuna Mixx.
If I had one complaint it would be when you go to detach the car seat from the Nuna Mixx stroller, you press the two small buttons on either side of the car seat to release the lock on each side of the stroller. For some reason, I have a hard time clicking them both at the same time and removing the car seat. Maybe because it is awkward, but even when it seems I have them both pushed down fully and I am pulling up, oftentimes one side will release and another won't. I usually have to have a helper squeeze the other button. This might be just the one I got, maybe one button is a little harder to press, but it may pose an inconvenience down the road if I am out by myself and cannot remove my son from the stroller on my own. I'm hoping it's something I will get used to(or maybe the button needs some working in)! It's not enough of an issue for me to remove a star. This car seat is that great.
Another small thing is there are quite a few warnings on the fabric of the seat. Just for asthetics, I wish those warnings were placed elsewhere! But of course, I like that they placed safety above asthetics.
This car seat is beautiful and feels luxurious. I know that he is safe in it and that is the most beautiful thing!
Pros:safe, strong magnets, great canopy, luxury, fits well, great color!
Cons:releasing car seat from stroller is sometimes difficult(possibly just my model), I wish warnings were placed elsewhere for asthetics.
Best Uses:shielding the sun
