Baby jogger car seat
July 25, 2023
Must purchase! Light and easy to use!
Roanoke, VA
Love it!
March 5, 2023
Brought my 4lb baby home in this car seat. Now she's 9 months, 28.5 inches long, and still fits great, though I'm sure in the next few months she'll reach the 32inch length limit.

To the people having issues: Take out the infant insert!!! After 12 lbs it should be taken out! And adjust the headrest, in the rear of the car seat. My almost 16lb 28.5" baby still fits great, no problems with width or length.

It worked great that my friend who needed a carseat for her second baby bought this carseat as well. We both have a baby jogger stroller as well.

We have also traveled with it using the seatbelt to keep it in place, no problems. And no problems with the base moving whatsoever, my husband did a great job installing the bases in our cars.

My son is 11 months and still fits perfectly!
February 13, 2023
I purchased this seat with the travel system. I love the base is so easy to install, and those saying it gets loose need to know that you have to readjust and tighten your base every month due to heat and cold..plastic fluctuates. Also, my son is 11 months and is 20lbs and about 30 inches and fits great! It's very roomy, so those saying it's too small need to remove the insert, and also should know that nothing except the baby in a thin outfit and maybe light sweatshirt are meant to be in the seat with the straps tightened. Anything that is not close to the body can't be worn and have the seat strapped safely. No coats, no buntings...none of that, just the baby's light clothes and then for warmth in winter, blankets over them and hats. It amazes me on how many of these reviews I see parents making comments and they're not installing, maintaining installation, or putting their children on this seat properly. I'm just flabbergasted! At any rate I love this seat and highly recommend it!

Amazing! A bit heavy though.
January 26, 2023
We asked for this car seat along with the city mini stroller as a travel system on our registry and don't regret anything! We love the car seat and how safe it is. I think the customer below who had a negative review, did not realize we can adjust the head cushion height to grow with our babies! I too thought that my baby was squished and uncomfortable but after doing more research I found out you can extend the seat to grow! Overall this is a great product. It feels super secure and safe for my child. My old con is that when we compare it to the popular chicco car, seat, the chicco wins in terms of being more lightweight and easier to carry with baby in it. Other than that, baby jogger hands down.

Too small for a newborn
December 13, 2022
My baby is only about 9 lbs and seems too big for this seat. Where the buckle attaches to the harness, the plastic protrudes into her legs and it's really difficult to snap. I even tried adjusting the buckle but it didn't help. The harness straps constantly twist. She hates it and I'm upset I invested in the system before reading more reviews.

My son is now 6 months, 18lbs and 26 inches long and does not fit into this seat. He is squished and uncomfortable. The seat is extremely hard toclick into the stroller connectors takes a lot of time and effort. I love the stroller, the car seat was a waste of money since I have to purchase a new car seat anyway and right now it's rough family on my family to do so.

Great seat, even for big baby
July 25, 2022
I received this seat as part of the GT2 Travel System as a gift at my baby shower. I was nervous after reading the reviews that I wouldn't be able to use it long since my husband and I are both very tall. My daughter is 6 months old, 97th percentile for height, 87th percentile for weight, and still has plenty of room to grow. There MUST be user error involved for anyone claiming their child has outgrown this before 6 months. As far as features, the no-rethread harness is great, the materials are very soft/high quality, and it easily clicks in and out of the car and stroller. The ability to install without the base is also a great feature, we're taking it on baby's first flight this week and will be able to use it on the plane and in taxis/ubers. My daughter falls asleep in this seat any time we're driving longer than 20 minutes, so she's clearly comfortable. My only complaint is that the straps do get twisted often, and while it's an annoyance it wouldn't prevent my from buying this again. Overall this has been a really great car seat!

Not too small!! Take out insert!!
July 15, 2022
There are so many reviews on here saying it's too small to fit their baby, my sister decided not to buy this carseat based on these reviews. I went back and read them because we don't have this problem and there are people actually posting photos of their babies that are over the weight limit for the infant insert still using the infant insert so of course their baby would be squished! If you read the manual it says once your baby is passed 12lbs you MUST take out the insert. The head rest also lifts when they grow in height. My baby is 15lbs 14oz and 27in long and fits perfectly still. Read the manual and stop bashing this car seat when you're not using it right!!

My 11.5lb newborn fit in it fine
June 16, 2022
Not sure how these small babies are not fitting in the car seat. If they outgrow the insert, take it out. My son had the insert until he was 6-months or so and because he's a big baby we took out the insert. He used the car seat until he outgrew the weight and size limit which was around 15 months. Others had their babies in there longer because my friend's babies are smaller. The straps do get twisted and I wished there was a function where you can put the straps via magnet on the side so they don't always get lost and twisted. I'm petite and carrying a hefty baby with the car seat is not easy, but the overall weight of the carrier I'm sure helps with the safety of my LO. I'd rather it be built solid than be flimsy like some other car seats I've seen.

This is a wonderful car seat. For everyone saying that it's too small, I'm curious if you read the manual. You have to remove the infant insert when they outgrow it. It makes the car seat way roomier. It's a shame that so many people downvote this car seat. My daughter is a big baby and she fit in this car seat until she was 1. It's crazy to me that so many people aren't reading the instructions of the car seat that they're putting their precious cargo in. Mind boggling.

Seems Uncomfortable
March 30, 2022
We have had this carseat for our son from birth. He is now 8mo, but probably more like a 6mo in size (< 5th %tile, weighed 14lbs at 6mo) and we finally caved to buying a normal/convertible carseat. He fusses almost every time we try to get him in this. The seat is so deep, especially without the body insert. The seat angles also seem severe, and it looks like such an unnatural seated position. We can't always get his butt to the bottom either when he fights it, which I worry makes it less safe.

Infant outgrew car seat at 3 months old
February 23, 2022
Like the car seat overall, but it does not work well for larger babies. My son is only 3 months old and weighs 15 lbs. He is very squished and uncomfortable in the seat now and, unfortunately, already needs a new car seat. We also have the Mini GT2 stroller and sadly he's too little to ride in that without the infant adapter. Any recommendations on what to do in the meantime since he's too big for the car seat, but still too small to ride normally in the stroller? Thank you!

Too small after only 6 months
February 19, 2022
I loved this car seat and stroller in the beginning but now that our girls are 16 pounds they were no longer fitting in this car seat. They seem so squished and so uncomfortable. These are very expensive and having to buy two of everything, we were hoping they would last awhile but already having to buy new car seats that wouldn't even work with the stroller we spent a lot of money on.

Something Just Isn't Right
February 12, 2022
I've been using this car seat for my baby from the ages of 0-11 weeks. At first we liked it. It's high quality and has solid head support. But, at 11 weeks our baby who is WELL within the seat's height (< 32 in) and weight (< 35 lbs) limits (he is 24 in and 13 lbs), has nearly outgrown the seat. We have thoroughly researched how to properly harness him with straps at or just below his shoulders and removed the newborn insert at the appropriate time, and the head support and straps are now at nearly the highest setting. The head support is raised above the highest point of the car seat shell, and our baby's head is almost at the 1" from top of seat limit. Baby Jogger, what am I missing? There's no way that my infant has outgrown the seat at 8 inches below the height limit! The published maximum height and weight cannot be correct. I'm extremely disappointed that I spent money on this product only to have to buy a new car seat after 11 weeks. The seat is also heavy and we found it somewhat difficult to install.

Too small
February 10, 2022
This car seat worked well for the first few months. I like that you have the option to use a base or to not use it. Also, it easily clips into the compact stroller. However, my baby quickly outgrew it and car rides have been miserable. She gets very hot and is squished in the seat so she is uncomfortable. I need to purchase a new car seat already.

Way to small, way to fast
February 8, 2022
I really loved this car seat as I thought it would last me a long time, and even bought 2 bases and the stroller. But after 3 months my daughter is miserable in this seat - she has run out of room and is uncomfortable, as it's way to small (& she gets super hot). There is no way the size and weight is correct, as she is 14lbs and 25inches and already has outgrown this seat that should have lasted us many more months. Car rides are awful because of this seat, but I spent so much money on it, that I don't want to give up using it.

Inadequate manual / instructions for use
December 22, 2021
received this as a baby shower gift and was very excited based on baby jogger reputation. but have aince been very disappointed - first off, the amt of instruction and guidnave on how to safely get baby in seat is astonishing. The lack of company issued/sponsored videos or help forums to understand the instructions is amazing to me. as a first time mom, safely getting my baby jn this seat is top priority and i feel like BJ did not allow parents to be set up for success at all.

Love it after 1 year, read about good and bad
November 28, 2021
We are happy with our purchase.
1. I read negative reviews about height at shoulders, but our baby is 95 percentile height and we had no issues, just gave to increase the height in the back.
2. Although can be used easily without a base, it is safest to use with a base. If seatbelt is not snug when used without a base, seat tipped over. If seatbelt is snug when used without a base, we had no issues.
3. Easy to use with the base in car and with baby jogger stroller.
4. Light weight

A bit disappointed
June 11, 2021
I wanted to like this car seat (got it in blue!) but I just can't deal with it's many design issues.
1. It's extremely heavy even before putting my baby in. My little girl is almost 15 lbs now and I feel like I'm lugging a whale, lol. It might be better if the design was less cumbersome-but there is simply no comfortable way to carry this.
2. The inserts are very ridged and have squished my baby from the beginning. Now that she's 4 months we have taken out the infant insert so it's a bit better, but now she's almost too long.
3. The straps are constantly twisting and I have to untwist them almost every time I use this. To tighten or loosen them, you need 3 hands-which you can imagine is impossible when I'm not with my mom or husband.
I would say that the quality of materials is very good and I really love my baby jogger stroller. I'm just disappointed in the car seat!

Great for the first few months
March 19, 2021
I bought the entire City Jogger Deluxe Double Travel System thinking the car seats would last until around a year, based on the 32 inch limit.

Our twins are now 7 months old & 15lbs (they were 2 months premature), & are already smashed & uncomfortable in the car seats. There is no room in the leg area &, even though we've adjusted it every way possible, they're constantly squirming trying to get comfortable.

The weird thing is that the jogging seats that came with the travel system are significantly larger.

Having to buy two of everything is costly as it is & a travel system for twins is an investment. I was really hoping to love this product but it just seems like a waste of money (with covid our usage is already light). Looks like I'm already back to the drawing board for the entire she-bang.

Would not recommend
October 25, 2020
I bought this car seat for our new baby who is now 3 months old. The warning label is rubbing off the hair on the back of her head and it is almost too small for her. I have washed it once and it looks old I feel like for as much money we spent on it would have lasted way longer.

Great car seat
July 15, 2020
Shipping was quick as usual with this company. When we purchased it we weren't sure if the base was only able to be secured with the car seat belt but after receiving the car seat we were able to find where the hooks to secure the seat were hidden. We was so happy it had the hooks. The one confusing thing is that the car seat box promotes buying an extra car seat base, not sure why?

My son is now 5 months, 16lbs and 25 inches long and does not fit into this seat at all. He looks terribly squished and uncomfortable. I was gifted a beautiful bunting that I can't even use because there is no room to spare for my LO. The straps are impossible to adjust one handed and they always seem to get twisted. The seat is heavy and takes some finessing to click into the stroller connectors. Also every few weeks we have to readjust the base because it comes loose. I can't imagine anyone using this for up to a year. Although I love the stroller, the car seat was a waste of money since I will have to purchase a new car seat anyway.

Using City GO 2 for my newborn
November 8, 2019
I am a first-time mom and I have used this car seat for my newborn for the last 2 weeks it. The City GO 2 infant Car Seat is a great option for traveling since you can use it without the base. I did not use this feature as I have only used it in my own car; I used the belt option instead of the latch per my car manual's specifications. It's easy enough to attach and remove the car seat from the included base. The anti rebound bar gives me peace of mind. I really love the fabric but would prefer a more feminine color option. One downside is that the stroller and adapters are sold separately instead of all together as a travel system. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this seat to test and review!

All around great car seat!
November 8, 2019
We are loving this car seat. It is easy to install and use without the base, using the seat belt, or with the base, using our car's latch system. The increased safety features of the seat, like the anti-rebound bar, are much appreciated We also (really!) love the extra quiet canopy. Too many a car nap has been disturbed thanks to a loud canopy in the past! The seat is soft and well-cushioned and every part that touches baby, including the straps and the buckle, are padded to protect baby. The only downside for us is the total length. In our car, it has proven to be a bit of a space hog, requiring us to move the seat in front of it up several inches. However, all the other features of this car seat make it worth the lost leg space for that seat. We like the car seat so much, we are thinking about buying one of the Baby Jogger strollers, with which to use it.
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for the chance to try out this car seat!

Easy to install and use
November 6, 2019
I was given this infant car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I always have my husband install car seats because I get so frustrated and never feel like I do it properly or tight enough, but I took this on myself and it was very easy! I actually felt like I could get it tight enough which I have never been able to do before. I didn't try installing it without the base, but that's a nice feature if we ever need to use it in a taxi or ride share. Some of the part names used in the instructions were hard to decipher but the numbered pictures helped explain what they were referring to. I really liked how easy the buckle was to fasten. I've had other car seats that are really nice, but there's so much fabric around the buckle that it's impossible to fasten without the fabric getting stuck. That's never fun with a wiggly, fussy baby! The UPF 50 shade is also a nice feature!

Amazing product
November 6, 2019
This seat was so easy to install even in my older vehicle, I dont have a latch system in my car so installing a car seat securely can be hard. With the quick locking system I knew that my child was secure. The adjustability of base meant that I was able to get the seat completely leveled which can be hard when the seats in your car dip down in back it's always a struggle to make car seats level without having to add rolled blankets underneath. My favorite thing about this car seat was that I could adjust height without rethreading, the slide lever in the back made adjustments super simple. Thank again stellar panel for sending me this product to review.

This is by far the easiest car seat to install. The infant insert was perfect for my preemie, soft yet snug enough to keep her little body safe. The handle is the perfect length to have in any of the positions in our van.

Easy to use
November 5, 2019
I want to start by Thanking the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this infant car seat, you guys rock! My first thought when I took the carseat out of the box was wow, its boy ish! I have twin girls but I still wanted to give this carseat a fair chance, boy am I glad I did! (No pun intended!). One feature of the carseat that I appreciated that it starts at 4 pounds! (Our babies were 4 pounds when we left the hospital so I know how important this feature is). As I used the carseat more I appreciated how easy it was to loosen/ tighten the straps. I could easily adjust the straps between the two girls or more importantly when they had a jacket on or if they didn't. I LOVED that the strap was not very long. With our other carseats the strap would end up dangling on the floor and since the girls are teething...Yup, you guessed it, right in there mouth it would go, eww! I was happy to see this was not a problem with this carseat. Additionally, it felt light to carry and I loved how tall the handle was. I never felt like I was going to hit my babies head on it as I took them out. I found it very easy to raise the headrest (a button in the back) and how snug my babies looked in it. I enjoyed the rapid lock design. The idea is so smart and definitely easier when you need to install two car seats. The Anti-rebound bar helped keep my little ones even more safe that is definitely a plus! It was SUPEReasy to use in my car with the rapid lock and go. It took me seconds to install. I also tried the taxi-safe belt and though I found it easy and simple to use, I still found it a little awkward and harder to use than the car seats we have now. I felt that this is an amazing carseat for someone who has two cars but only wants to have one base since is so easy to install. It's also good for someone without a car since the taxi-safe belt is easy to use. Overall though, I do not love the style of the carseat. It has a hefty price tag and for that kind I money I want to make sure I think it's pretty! However, if safety and easy installation are you number one priority then this carseat may just be what you are looking for.

Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this infant car seat. This car seat was very easy to install and it felt very secure once installed. It felt like a very safe choice for our son. The padding helped him have a more comfortable experience in the seat and the straps were easy to adjust for his size.

Great infant car seat!
November 5, 2019
This car seat is a great choice for anyone looking for a nice, safe, sturdy infant seat. The car seat itself is designed well. There is a thick infant padding that provides so much cushion for the baby without being too much. The canopy is nice and big, and does a great job keeping baby warm and dry if you're caught out in the rain.

The car base installs easily, and it's not a hassle trying to remove the seat. The seat is also very simple to install without the base. The only negative we found with the seat, is that the carrying bar gets caught up on the canopy when you shift the seat to carrying position. It's a bit frustrating to deal with, especially if you're on the go. Overall, besides that, this seat is great.

User friendly
November 5, 2019
Thanks to the amazing Stellar Product Testing Panel, I was given the City GO 2 Infant carseat to test. From the start, the carseat was user friendly and very easy to install.
My favorite feature is the easy harness adjustment. Other carseats require to uninstall and rethread the harness but the City GO 2 has an quick tab to suppress and move. My other favorite feature was the location of the carseat release lever from the base. It was easy to access at the head of the carseat compared to the foot. This is especially helpful when getting out of the car while managing the carseat and a 2 year old.
The anti-rebound bar added stability to the base, which gave me a peace of mind. I have worried about past carseat safety levels when the base can shift up and down even when tighten to the seat.
One negative aspect of the carseat was it is longer in the car once installed with the base. Since it is longer, my husband complained about having less leg room in the front seat. Another drawback for me is the carseat was harder to carry being a petite woman at 5'1". I struggled to comfortably carry the carseat in and out of stores due to the longer handle forcing me to carry it on my arm. Overall the City GO 2 carseat has great safety features and very user friendly.

High Quality Features
November 4, 2019
The City GO 2 Infant Car Seat is a well tested, well designed infant car seat that checks all of my boxes. It has an anti-rebound bar as an extra safety feature for a frontal collision, which is something I have not seen in many other car seats. The car seat took less than 10 minutes to install from the time I opened the instructions to the time it was ready to use. I used the base in my car since it is the car my little boy primarily travels in, but it is nice to know that there is a simple way to install the car seat in another vehicle without a base if needed. The level on the base reassured me that that base was installed correctly, based on my baby's weight. The car seat is very light and easy to carry. Both the body support insert and the car seat itself feel very comfortable and well padded. I also really like the comfort of the shoulder strap pads as well as the buckle strap cover. One of my favorite features is the canopy, which is very large, provides sun protection (UV 50+), and is designed to block outside noises. The only negative I have found is that it can be difficult to move the handle to each of the different positions, especially when the canopy is down. The buttons to move the handle seem smaller than ones on other car seats and the handle seems to get hung up on the canopy as it moves. Overall, the City GO 2 is a comfortable, well designed infant car seat with all of the features you could want plus more. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this infant car seat!

Super Safe Car seat that is easy to use!
November 4, 2019
First time mom here and I know how overwhelming it can be to decide on the best car seat for your little one. You want a car seat that is safe beyond anything, but also easy to use, because if you can't install the seat properly or strap your little one in properly, then it kind of renders the product as useless.

So now let's talk about the City GO 2 infant car seat. I was given this infant car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. When I took it out of the box I absolutely loved the design of the seat itself. It is very sleek and I loved all the padding inside on the head support as well as the body support insert. The seat comes with buckle strap covers which is a nice extra touch to make baby comfy in the seat. I really like knowing that this seat is safe and even on there it states "side impacted tested".

The canopy is large and has UV50 protection, as well as moves quietly so that when you are adjusting it, you won't wake a sleeping baby. My one issue with the canopy is that because it is so large it tends to get stuck on the handle bar. When I was using the canopy I had to push it down a little bit to get it to go under the handle bar. Same thing when I was moving the handle bar, it would get stuck on the canopy, especially when canopy wasn't in use and I wanted the handle bar in the stationary position. But honestly that isn't a deal breaker for me.

Adjusting the seat so that my little one was placed in there properly and securely was a breeze! First I took out the body support because it is only to be used for babies 12lbs and under and my little one is past that weight. Next I needed to adjust the harness height, which you do by adjusting the head support height. No need to re-thread harness, adjusting is simple and easy with the adjustment buttons on the back of the car seat, just squeeze the buttons and move it up or down to the correct harness height. You cannot adjust with baby in the seat so I had to put him in and take him out a couple of times before I got the correct height for him. After that I placed my baby into the seat I buckled him in and easily tightened the straps by pulling on the adjuster strap. So easy and no frustrating hassle of re-threading anything!

Now the base for the car seat has awesome safety features! It has anti-rebound bar which provides an extra layer of safety if you are in an accident. When I went to go install the base it was so quick and easy! The latch connectors easily hooked on to the latch anchors in my car, I got them hooked on the first try! Also the level indicator is so easy to read, there was no second guessing myself. When I first put the base in, the bubble showed me that the base needed to be adjusted and I easily raised the foot base (there are 4 recline positions) and got the bubble in the in the correct position. That was the only adjustment I needed to do and once everything was correctly locked in I was ready to put my baby in the car! The seat went easily in and you could hear the click that meant the seat was securely attached. It was also quick and easy to get the seat out of the car as soon as you find the release handle located at the rear of the car seat.

The other awesome feature of this seat is the taxi safe seat belt; for those days you don't have your car and you need to take a taxi or ride share you don't need to take the base with you! I tested out installing the seat without the base in my car just to get a feel for how difficult it would be. I'm happy to report it was pretty easy once you knew how to do it. I did it twice because the first time around the seat belt did get a little twisted, but once I saw my mistake I was able to redo it and securely get the seat in.

This infant car seat is amazing! Easy to install, easy to adjust, and my baby gets to ride in style, while I have peace of mind knowing my baby is safe riding in the car.

Im so impressed with this Car seat
November 4, 2019
Im so impressed with this car seat in so many ways, the first thing I noticed when I removed it from the box was the adjustable head rest and how easy it was to use, then I went to install the base and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was, and you know its secure when the bar clicks gives me a piece of mind that its safe, and I love how light the car seat itself is, some seats are extra heavy and hard for new moms to carry with baby in it but this one is perfect weight. I also like the fact that if you are traveling you have the option to secure the seat belt without the base and if you have ever traveled with a infant you know how aggravating it is to have to lug around the base and the car seat. My baby will be so comfy with the soft padding and the head support. I would give this car seat 10 stars if I could. Im so happy that I received this car seat to test from Stellar Product Panel.

Baseless Install a Breeze
November 4, 2019
I was given this car seat to test as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and it could not have arrived at a better time. Our car broke down right as we were rushing to get a very hungry baby home to eat. The baseless installation is 7 easy steps. It was refreshing knowing we could quickly pop the car seat into a new car without having to uninstall and reinstall the base (which is 14 steps).
While the canopy is very quiet (our baby slept right through moving the canopy up and down), it is not attached to the back of the seat. This means when you roll it back, you could end up pushing it all the way down to the ground. Not a huge problem in your house, but if you're on the street or somewhere else messy/dirty/wet, the canopy will drag through that.

Easy to Use, Roomy Seat, Great for Plagio Helmets
November 4, 2019
The Stellar Product Testing Panel provided me with the opportunity to test an infant seat (for free!) at the perfect time. My six month old had just been diagnosed with plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome) and had been fitted with a helmet. One problem: his helmet wouldn't fit into the headrest of his old infant seat. When this car seat showed up on my doorstep not a week later, the first thing I thought was, "check the headrest!" Thankfully, there is plenty of room for my little guy's big head and helmet. The seat was easy to adjust for baby's height. The buckles weren't difficult to adjust and lay flat when tightened. My baby seemed comfortable in this seat. The fabric seems like it would clean up well. I like how the carry handle is thinner in diameter. I have small hands, and this is easier for me to grip. The base was easy enough to install. The directions were clear. I like the anti-rebound bar. It makes for a very tight base installation.
When I go to click the car seat into the base in my van, I have had to double check that the seat is latched completely into the base. It might just be me, but after dropping the seat into the base and hearing a click, the seat still moved a bit in the base, I had to push down on the foot of the car seat to make sure that end was latched (another click). I don't think it reflects negatively on the car seat at all. It's just different enough from those I've used in the past, that I wanted to mention it.
Baby Jogger advertises a large canopy on this seat, and they did not exaggerate. It's huge. I (and my husband) both had a hard time moving the carry handle back from the upright position, past where the canopy connects to the seat sides, and down below to stabilize the seat. It's not a deal breaker, though. Another issue I had, and it might be only me, was with the fabric seat cover attachments near where the canopy attaches on either side of the seat. The cover is held on at these points by flat pieces of plastic that fit behind the plastic seat edge. I've seen this method used successfully in other car seats we've used over the years. For whatever reason, when I first unpacked and looked the seat over, I noticed these plastic pieces weren't fitting where they were supposed to. I could fit them it their proper position, but they didn't stay in place long because they were bent. It must have happened during packaging or shipping. However, it doesn't affect the function of the car seat, as the canopy bar attachments hold the seat cover on at these points. I probably wouldn't have noticed this issue if I hadn't been really looking the seat over.

Overall, I like this seat, and think the installation and buckling is as easy or easier than any other seats I've tried. I'm happy to use it, and am really looking forward to connecting it to my trusty Baby Jogger City Select double stroller (purchased by me and used for three years now), as this family of five tries to keep up with our busy lives

Light and Comfy carseat
November 4, 2019
We are using the City Go 2 Infant car seat as a second carseat in my husbands car. I would probably switch it to the main car seat in my car if we had a Baby Jogger stroller, as the City Go 2 is much lighter, more comfortable than my current car seat and the straps and headrest are MUCH easier to adjust. The base installation was super easy (we used the LATCH straps) and I was able to get a very secure fit by myself whereas I feel like normally it is a two person job.
I love the generous sunshade/canopy, but the only downfall is that the big canopy gets in the way of moving the handle to the carrying position and back down, while although annoying isn't a deal breaker. I received this infant car seat from the Stellar Product Testing Panel and will definitely be using it until my baby grows out of it.

Easy Installation!
November 3, 2019
The City Go 2 Infant car seat helps alleviate some of that Mom worry with an extra safe ride for your babe. Not only do I feel my little is protected from impact with the anti rebound bar and EPS energy absorbing foam adding protection from all sides, he rides in style and comfort. I love the extra large shaded canopy that not only keeps the sun and wind out of his eyes, it provides extra privacy for naps and keeps out germs. This is one of my favorite features and makes this car seat great for all environments from taking him into the city to an outdoor hike. The car seat comes with an infant insert which makes it easy to use immediately from day 1 and will grow with him.

Installation was a breeze took me less than 10 minutes. The step by step instructions provided in both English and Spanish were easy to follow and I found the pictures to be the most helpful especially when determining how to assess the base foot adjustment to ensure it is level (according to baby's weight). I used the latch hooks in my car as I do not plan to take him in a taxi, however should you need to, there is a taxi safe belt path for a base less install!

The only dislikes I found were that the carrier does not easily detach from the base. I tried several times and found you need to really assert some force in pushing the release and pulling it off.

Note: I received this product as a member of Stellar's Product Testing Panel. Thank you Stellar!

Sleek Infant Carrier
November 3, 2019
This infant seat in Slate is super sleek looking and love how light it is. The RAPIDLOCK base installation is amazing. Sharing a base between two vehicles is a breeze, because you literally lift, click and your base installation is done. Plus with the rebound bar, the car seat doesn't move. The seat can go up to 35 pounds so I can use it a bit longer than my previous infant carrier, plus it will click into my Baby Jogger stroller. I love that the head rest adjusts, versus the removable pillow that comes with other brands. The only thing I did not care for with this car seat was the carrier handle felt awkward to carry with it just being a straight flat bar. Not enough of a deal breaker not to use the seat though. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this infant car seat
