Great carseat! Cozy, lightweight, easy to install
September 30, 2020
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.
