Really nice looking car seat and lightweight! Only con is the sun shade doesn’t really have a place to store when not in use, a zipper would of been perfect like in the older models..

I guess my review headline says it all. This thing is LIGHT. I know that the slightest bit of extra weight can wear you down pretty quickly, so this was a purchase of convenience, hoping to mitigate struggling with it in the future. I use it with my new Bugaboo Fox 3 and it works smoothly and looks like a perfect match.. Being able to swap it easily between my car base and my stroller with as little noise as possible will be the choice that I thank myself for later.

The fabrics feel great, and the car seat pops so easily out of the base. My baby isn't here yet, but as a "summer baby", I feel like opting for this very breathable car seat was a great choice - even if I did go with the black fabric.

While you don't need the base (I'll be leaving it in my car), using it without the base is also extremely simple. You simply pull the handle under the front and it releases without a struggle or any awkwardness.

Between the dream drape (magnetic pulldown shade), the white indicators, and thoughtful design, the Turtle Air and base are well worth the price. Knowing that I won't have to fuss with a zipper to pull down the shade or struggle with strapping in an antsy baby brings me peace of mind. And speaking of peace of mind, an overlooked feature of this car seat is Nuna's unique construction that provides some of the best safety among the many car seats that I looked at.

I'm sure there are others that you are considering, but I have zero buyer's remorse about this purchase. If you buy it, I'm sure your future self will appreciate it.
  • Super light, well designed (brilliantly designed, seriously), breathable.
Best Uses
  • Definitely consider this if you are also buying the Bugaboo Fox 3.
  • It's not the cheapest. An additional car seat base is also quite expensive. If you have two cars, you may have to either shell out for another seat base or decide who will be driving the baby around the most.
