Description


Travel light—with baby! Weighing only 8 lb, the Baby Jogger City GO AIR Infant Car Seat provides a lightweight, safe spot for baby to join in on your adventures from day one. It securely attaches to your Baby Jogger stroller to create a travel system and can quickly go from city street to rideshare—even without the included car seat base—thanks to the taxi-safe belt path. It comes with a 4-position adjustable base that can be easily installed in your vehicle with either the integrated push-button LATCH or belt-tensioning RAPIDLOCK base for your seat belt. The SecureStop anti-rebound bar adds to your peace of mind by reducing rearward movement of the seat in the event of a frontal collision. The flex shade canopy drape can be drawn over baby to protect from sun and wind while you are on the go. The baby car seat includes a removable infant insert that helps securely position small babies, and its OptiVent™ fabrics keep the newest member of your family dry and comfortable. Protects infants rear-facing from 4 to 35 lb and up to 32".
  • Ultra Lightweight Infant Car Seat with a rideshare safe belt path weighs 8lbs without the base
  • Flex Shade Canopy Extension provides complete coverage for child
  • OptiVent™ Moisture Wicking Infant Insert keeps baby cool
  • TRUE Test Plus Engineered rigorously engineered and tested to help protect your child in rollover, side, front and rear collisions
  • EPP Energy Absorbing Foam for advanced side impact protection (SIP)

Baby Jogger is very proud
By 3rd M.
from Reading, Pa
on April 3, 2021
This seat was a major disappointment. Very hard and uncomfortable for the baby with less seat safety features than comparably priced carriers. Base was easy to secure in my car via seat belt but didn't have LATCH clips that we prefer. The sun shade was nice and breathable but had no way of securing up and out of the way so it wouldn't flop in the baby's face. We purchased this because we have the City Elite and City Select strollers and wanted a seat that was easily compatible. Both strollers are about 10 years old but as sturdy as a brick house. Baby Jogger dropped the ball and looks like they made a deal with Graco for their seats. Graco is cheaper and kept the trade secrets for their own brand. Returned for a Graco SnugFit Elite.

We got the baby jogger mini from our baby shower. We looked and found the baby jogger infant carrier was super easy to install and works great with our stroller. Super light and I don't need to buy another base for the mother in laws. Love the sleek design tho the price is a little high. Maybe a little lower would be nice. Other than that it's perfect.

I have a naturally small frame and I'm only 4'11", so the thought of carrying around a huge car seat + a baby was daunting for me. I literally walked around baby stores with a weighted baby doll until I found one I could carry. I was also not going to give up safety and protection for a car seat being lightweight. Another feature I love is how easy it is to adjust the straps by pinching the buttons on the back. Babies are constantly growing, so to not have to rethread the seatbelt (and fear you did it wrong) is so nice. The stroller is so compact and fits nicely in the trunk of my compact car. It is so easy to fold (literally can do it one handed with a baby on the hip).

And it has see through peekaboos so my baby can still see outside even with it pulled out. It is light and has great and padded infant insert. It matches with my stroller so makes coop travel system.

After a few kids, we have tried a few different car seats, and this is my favorite one by far. Seems to be very comfortable for baby and also feels very safe. We appreciate the extra padding plus the cushioned shoulder straps and seat buckle. The base is easy to install and easy to click the seat into and out of. The sunshade is probably the largest one we've ever had and adjusts without extra noise that otherwise wakes baby up. It also fits great in our City Select stroller. The only potential downside is the weight. As baby continues to grow, the seat is getting almost too heavy for me to carry with him in it.

As a first time parent, you want the best of the best. I'm so glad I got this car seat! There are so many great features. First, installation was a breeze. It took my husband less than 5 minutes to install the base into my car, and securing the car seat into the base is as simple as listening for a few clicks! Buckling in my little one is also super easy. The adjustable height and weight feature of the straps is a huge bonus. I love that I'm able to use this car seat for a little longer because of that! Great quality fabric, and the UV 50+ screen is a wonderful bonus!

A light car seat, but needs improvement
By Leylola
from Acton, MA
on November 9, 2020
Verified Buyer
The City Go Air car seat overall is a nice lightweight car seat, however I think it still needs some improvement. Pros are that it's great for when your baby is getting heavy as the car seat is light in weight and the fabrics feel nice to the touch, which is great for baby's skin. I liked that I could put the straps and hook them in the seat belt slots to hold the straps to the side when putting my baby inside. The sides are a little lower making it easier to take baby out/put in when car seat is place on the left/right side of the car.
However, I found there are features that aren't as intuitive like the shoulder strap release button is hidden under the fabric. You have to stick your thumb/finger under it, although I think maybe it was hidden for a better aesthetic? The sun shade has no zipper to adjust it in size - it's either hooking it to the handle or unhooking it which leaves it less stable/floppy. You can't partially pull it up to keep it in place. Also, sometimes I felt the canopy hooked to the carrying arm was in the way when I wanted a certain grip to hold/carry my the car seat.
Installing the car seat with the latches was easy to click in, but it felt loose. Even though I like the idea of the rebound bar, I realized I had to really push the seat in/dent it in order to get the rebound bar snug. I think it depends on the shape of the back seats in your car/incline of the bottom seat. I really had to put my weight into it to get it securely in place without movement. Overall, the idea is great, but to get it to where I think it could be, improving the canopy/hook system, strap button location, and installation would be key for me to consider using this car seat a lot more. I think it could potentially be a great car seat, but not quite there yet. (I received this product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel.)

This seat was by far the easiest to install Out of all seats we've tried. The material is soft and seems to hold up better than other brands. The sheild built in is an added bonus. It's very convenient and I feel better knowing it's built into the seat and passes all safety tests. He seems really comfortable and rides smooth. In fact he doesn't even wake up when I transfer his seat from base to stroller. We received this product free from the Stellar Product Testing Panel in exchange for our honest feedback!

Light, comfortable, compact, AND stylish
By cindellaNYC

We have 3 kids and have tried 3 different carseats. The City GO Air is the best infant carseat we've had! It truly is light, even with my 20lb 10-month-old inside. It looks great and my baby appreciates the higher recline, especially since he's not a newborn anymore. My favorite feature is the base, which was easy to install and level in my car. In particular the bar keeps the base and carseat very snug and still even during bumps and big turns. My baby typically doesn't enjoy car rides, but he has cried much less since we started using the City GO Air.

Additional perks: the GO Air is stylish and looks great. It is also extremely compact even with the base - I'm able to fit 3 carseats across the back of my car (GO Air in the middle, two convertible carseats on each side).

Areas for improvement: The belt adjustments are not as easy as I would've liked. It was a struggle to move the buckle through the tiny premade slots just to adjust the straps to my baby's length. It's also not as easy to remove the cover for cleaning. These are minor issues, but annoying nonetheless.

Overall, this has been the best infant carseat we've used (across several major brands and price points). I feel safe driving with my baby, and he's comfortable riding in the carseat. We live in the city but haven't been riding in taxis due to COVID, but look forward to testing that feature. Thank you Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending this carseat, we'll be using it until my baby grows out of it!

Ok, let me start by saying that I received this product for free from Stellar Panel to test out. I gotta say though this is by far way better than our previous set up we had. The install of the base took less than three seconds. I do a lot of woodworking, and transporting a lot of material, so I am often found removing and reinstalling the car seat base over and over and over while I haul wood and tools in and out of my car. The base is super slim and fits in the foot area in the back seat when I need it to. That's really what's most important to me in my current work. For the baby though - I didn't get much of a response as far as the comfort goes, he is only 10 months - and at the same time, a baby that doesn't whine or cry is a happy baby in my mind! The material is ultra slick, and on these hot Colorado days I didn't get a single bit of that "sweaty back" when taking him out, so that's a huge plus! All in all, an easy in and out situation for me, and a baby who isn't sweating in the cheaper material of other brands makes this a game changer for me and my wife. Highly recommend and very happy to have tried out this product from City, that frankly I didn't know existed. Can't wait for our third to be in it as this is clearly a sturdy set up that'll last another 9 months ;)

Easiest Car Seat Ever!

Easiest Car Seat Ever!

The City GO Air is seriously the best car seat on the market. The anchor latches are just like seat belts and easily attach and detach. That is by far the best feature because there is no fighting to get the base attached and it's super easy to remove the base as well. I'm also not a very big or strong person, and the car seat is the lightest I've ever carried. I can actually go to the store without dreading the walk from the car to the carts! When you use the car seat without the base, the lap belt locks into place so you don't have to worry about a day with grandma and buckling the car seat incorrectly. It has multiple features and my daughter is extremely comfortable in it. There is even a shade canopy hidden in the top with easy access and convenience. The City GO Air is a dream come true for a busy mom on the go. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this car seat.

Lightweight, Breathable Car Seat
By epier

The City Go Air is a great, light weight, breathable & safe car seat! I like how it can be installed with the safety bar using just the seatbelt. As soon as I realized how to install the base, I appreciated how easy it is to swap between cars. I love that this carseat is more breathable than my current car seat and the extendable shade cover/mesh netting are GREAT for summer heat. This is a wonderful car seat to take to the beach/pool. I sometimes found the canopy would fall off with just the velcro. I wish there was an additional zipper or snap to keep the canopy attached to the car seat. I think the hooks on the canopy are a smart way to keep the canopy from falling backwards- it is nice to keep my baby shaded in this summer sun! I felt that the baseless install was a little less stable than my current car seat. Without the base, the car seat seems to lean a little forward. I prefer to use the base with this car seat since the base is so easy to use! I love that it is such a safe and secure car seat given how light weight this car seat is! Thank you Stellar Parent Panel for letting me test this car seat!

Great carseat! Cozy, lightweight, easy to install
By JessicaW124
from Madison, WI
on September 30, 2020
Verified Buyer
This is an amazing car seat. It's comfortable, but also quite spacious. The carrier itself is also lightweight compared to others I've used.
The best part about this car seat is the ability to use it with or without its base! The base itself installs quickly and is much easier to install than other infant seats that I have used. It has LATCH straps that makes it easy to hook onto the anchors in the car- literally took me two minutes to do (again, much simpler than other systems that I've installed). I also loved the fact we could use this without the base. My parents often take my kids to babysit, and it is such a pain to uninstall and reinstall the car seat bases in their car and then back into mine when we are done. That is not a problem with this car seat! I was able to seamlessly transfer the seat to their car without the base. So convenient, and still safe!
One feature I love about this seat is how easy it is to attach and remove the car seat to/from its base. There is seriously no struggling to get the seat into the exact spot to click in. Removing it from the base is also a cinch- one hand to remove the seat is all you need! This is important for me, as I have another toddler I am usually trying to wrangle and being able to do this one handed is super helpful.
I also love the canopy feature on this car seat, which is definitely not standard when it comes to infant seats. I am used to having to bring a blanket or car seat cover to protect my infant from the sun, wind, and rain. This canopy drape comes down to cover the entire infant seat, perfect for protecting my baby from the elements (and no additional blanket required!).
My baby seemed very comfortable in this car seat. The fabric was very breathable and seemed to keep her cooler on hot summer days. I loved having the infant inserts, as she was pretty small at birth and this was able to provide a cozy car seat for her. I also like how this car seat was
One feature that I wasn't too crazy about was the rubber handle used for carrying. I personally would prefer a smooth handle without the rubber, as it seemed to just get in the way and would sometimes catch on my arm funny. This is by no means a dealbreaker for this car seat, just a personal preference.
Overall this car seat exceeded my expectations for Baby Jogger! I would definitely recommend for all new parents, especially those that have to constantly move their car seats (or use Uber/taxis and have to take baby along with). Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this car seat for an honest review.

I received the product through the Stellar Product Testing Panel and am so glad I did. I really like this car seat. It's lightweight, easy to install, and has so many thoughtful features. I've pretty much always liked Baby Jogger products and we have used one of the older models of this car seat. This updated version has more safety features, including some pieces to stabilize the seat if there is a crash, which makes me feel reassured. And, I love the sun shade on this seat. Its such breathable material and gives great coverage. The one change I'd make is to improve the quality of the material of the neck pads.

My Favorite Infant Carseat Ever!
By MomTo5
from New Jersey
on September 30, 2020
Verified Buyer
As the mother of 5 including newborn twins I have used a lot of infant car seats from various brands. The Baby Jogger City Go Air is by far my favorite infant car seat.
There are so many positives to this car seat that I don't know where to begin. First of all, it is a roomy car seat yet it is lightweight. The materials and fabric are high quality. My 1 month old was very comfy in it and did not sweat at all with the infant insert despite the August heat. I absolutely loved the mesh drape that comes down from the canopy to completely cover the baby. It is absolutely genius. I hate when strangers get too close to my baby especially in the era of covid. The integrated drape covered my baby completely so strangers were less likely to approach him and couldn't touch him. The integrated drape is so much better than using a blanket or car seat cover.
In terms of safety I really loved the installation of the base. Although there were over 10 steps in the manual, the base installation with the LATCH system was actually very easy. After attaching the latches and tightening the strap, you simply push the rapid lock bar down to lock it in place. Once it clicks the base is extremely secure in the car. It didn't move at all when I tried to shake it so I felt the base was definitely installed very securely. In addition, the anti-rebound bar made the base seem safer than other typical infant seat bases. The City Go Air can also be installed easily without the base which is a great feature to have just in case you need to use the car seat in another car occasionally.
The only negatives I could find with the car seat are very minor. First, the pad that goes around the buckle strap is sewed to the infant body cushion. However, the infant body cushion can only be used up to 10 or 12 lbs so once a baby weighs more than that, there is no longer a padding around the buckle. Not a big deal but I wish it came with an additional buckle pad to use without the body insert. Second, the canopy is attached to the handle bar. I generally like this feature because I almost always have the canopy up. However, sometimes in the car I prefer to put the canopy down so it doesn't block the view of my baby in the mirror. Technically the manual states the handle bar can be in any position in the car but I prefer to keep the handle bar up for safety in which case the canopy remains up as well. I honestly can't think of any other negatives.
Overall this a great comfortable light weight car seat with an extra safe easy-to-install base. As an experienced parent I would definitely recommend this car seat to other parents.
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this car seat to try.
