Great for travel!
After reading several reviews about this and other car seats, I purchased the Contender 65 as a travel car seat for my 15 month old. I wanted something that was affordable, functional, safe, and easy enough to carry through an airport and onto an airplane. When we tested it out for size at home, little one did not want to get out of it! He was very comfy in it at home, through the airport on wheel cart, on the plane, and rear-facing in the car. I'm excited to be able to continue using it for a few years, and to keep him rear-facing in it until 40lb. Have even though about getting it to use for our next baby and skipping the infant seat option.
I've read reviews about challenges have had with this seat and I have to say I didn't have a hard time with it at all. Was simple enough to install on a plane and in a car in a timely manner.
I've very picky about car seats and car seat safety. I very much like the Contender 65 and recommend to others.
