Hands down best carseat and worth the $$$
We have gone through several car seats and at the recommendation of several friends, finally broke down and splurged on the Nuna Rava. I am SO glad that we did. We have been really happy with other Nuna products in the past so I knew it would be great and this didn't disappoint. It is comfortable, so easy to install, extremely user friendly, safe, and my child loves it. We plan on purchasing a second one. It was originay a tossup between the clek Foonf and Nuna Rava so I did my due diligence and spent days researching both. The Nuna has a better warranty,is more comfortable, and way easier to install.
Pros-Long warranty -Sleek look -Super comfortable -Very Safe -Probably the easiest and most functional carseat on the market -NOT made in China. Manufactured in a very eco friendly sustainable European factory with very high standards.
Cons-hefty price tag

Best car seat ever made
This car seat is probably the best car seat ever made for kids. It was very easy to install and has some cool features that makes our lives easier.... Overall, a very good buy. Albee Baby customer service was very helpful and they shipped the item really fast. Definitely shopping with you guys again in the future!

I just installed this last night and I already love it! It was so easy to install. I love the grey color. I think it’s going to be much cooler for my baby than the infant carrier. Definitely glad I got it with it being 94 degrees outside already.

Expensive but worth it
The car seat is expensive but the ease of use and the safety it provides is unbeatable. Bonus: it can be used from infant stage and is a convertible - so your investment does go a long way.

Nuna Rava
I cannot rave enough about this car seat! I own 2 Nuna Ravas now and I would never purchase another convertible car seat. Though expensive, it is worth every penny. It is very user friendly and easy to use. It is so easy to install and truly achieves a very tight install—the seat does not budge and seems very safe. The material is very nice, soft, and easy to clean. You truly get what you pay for with this car seat!
ProsEase of use/install, recline features, no re-thread harness and crotch buckle, extended rear facing
ConsExpensive, cup holders difficult to open and close

I recently purchased this seat to for an extra car and it does not begin to compare to another brand we have. The seat is so plush and I was very intrigued by the fact that you are able to machine wash the cover. Not the slimmest of seats, but it fits fine in my SUV. Very easy to install, also.

Pricey and heavy but definitely worth it!
It‚€™s quite a pricey car seat but I bit my tongue and splurged since I wasn‚€™t 100% happy with my current car seats: a Maxi Cosi Pria 85 Max and Graco 4Ever. The only issue I had with the Rava thus far is the weight, it‚€™s quite heavy but that‚€™s not a deal breaker. Despite the Rava being the heaviest of the 3 (Pria as the lightest), the heaviness makes up for being a sturdy and durable car seat! I did not have any issues setting up the Rava (and 4Ever) in different vehicles; it sat well, whereas I hate the Pria because I feel it‚€™s never secure enough and wobbles and looks awkward no matter what I do. The Rava is extremely cushioned without making my daughter too hot, who runs hot in general. She did well in the 4Ever although I feel the 4Ever could use more padding; the Pria, despite the special material on the Max model, she sweated pretty badly during the few days of hot weather we had in March here in Northern California. I have yet to need to wash the Rava so I cannot comment on that but when I saw the seat in person prior to purchasing, I was afraid of lint (pet fur) and dirt catching on to it. So far it has not been an issue. The 4Ever is easy to clean and no issues with dirt and lint; and Pria, I can see how the material may start piling soon. The two foldable cups make for convenience when needed, however, I feel that they‚€™re a bit filmsy with the way they lift up and down - I‚€™m always afraid I might break them off the seat because I can‚€™t seem to get them to fold down smoothly. Cleaning appears to be difficult but I‚€™ve yet to have the need to. Whereas the 4Ever‚€™s two cup holders detaches from the seat, but Ive had issues with them not securing all the time and my daughter would pull on them. Pria - comes with one cup holder and I believe it‚€™s permanently attached to the seat although I‚€™ve read that it can be removed but I have yet to figure that out, therefore it makes cleaning a bit harder, plus the material is not a smooth plastic so dirt can easily catch in. I like the harness holder of the Rava; sticking the buckles into the clip holder is easy whereas the 4Ever doesn‚€™t have that option and the Pria Max does but I find it harder to clip the harness without having to pull the straps out far enough. The Rava harness does twist but not as much as the Pria, which the Pria just drives me crazy!!! I love how the Rava has the adjustable crotch option. I‚€™m still trying to get the hang of adjusting it, but that options is definitely a plus since my daughter has big thighs. My daughter looks comfortable in the Rava even when she falls alseep in it. She looks comfy in the Pria but always seems too hot and ‚€œstuffed‚€, and 4Ever needs more padding! Thus far I am happy with my decision to go with the Rava and is my primary car seat of choice. I am hesitant to take it for travel (air line check in) as I‚€™m afraid it might get damaged. The 4Ever is my 2nd option. We‚€™ve checked it on airlines and no issues. I would pass on Pria 85 altogether (again, I have the Max).
ProsPretty much everything!
ConsToo heavy

Perfect car seat
Gorgeous seat that is a dream to install in cars and airplanes, is breathable and comfortable for my daughter and has high rear facing limits, what‚€™s not to love? I also appreciate that it forgoes the latch system.

High quality, comfort, aesthetics, and safety
We love this car seat! My daughter hates riding in the car, but does slightly better in this seat and appears very comfortable when riding and sleeping in it. Only thing I don‚€™t like is the color, which I chose, so that is my own wrong doing. I chose slate and it shows every drop of anything spilled. I would choose the black if I could do if again.

Amazing car seat
I love nuna products you get what you pay for and I want smooth installation and comfort for my child and I feel at ease on our long trips that my child is in a safe tight seat with soft cushions when she sleep I honesty would recommend for all the moms out there yes it‚€™s pricey but worth it and won‚€™t regret it.

Very safe, but very bulky!
I love the overall quality and design of this carseat, however, when we went to install it in our BMW X3, the carseat is an incredibly tight fit (despite what we had read online). Additionally, the shape of the X3 seats are sloped in a way that when the carseat is in the reverse facing option, there is almost no recline to it! When our son falls asleep in it, his head flops forward! We are keeping the carseat for when we can use it in the forward-facing option, but will not be able to use it for another 7 months.
ProsVery sturdy Quality fabric Easy to install
ConsVery bulky Does not fit in the reverse position very well

Amazing convertible
Nuna got it right with this seat. It is easy to install with a seat belt, has holders for the buckles, nice fabrics, extendable leg support, and rear faces for a long time and very compact front to back so great for behind tall drivers. You use convertible seats for years- this one is worth the splurge

Great Seat for smaller toddlers
This is a awesome seat!!! My two year old is smaller in average, she fits perfectly in this seat. The seat we had before was awwsome too(Chicco Nextfit) but just didn't fit her right. Only thing I don't like about this seat is how hard it is to wash compared to the Chicco Nextfit zip.
ProsFits smaller toddlers great
ConsHard to wash

Our baby hates the infant car seat so we figured it was about time we upgrade to a convertible. This does not disappoint. He used to scream whenever he got put into the car. Now he just passes out or enjoys the drive which is so liberating for us.

Best Car Seat
Have the Berry Car Seat. My Daughter loves this car Sear, Been a great fan of NUNA. I have their stroller Car seat etc.., Few things I really like about this car seat 1. its ease of installing very easy to setup and move the car seat to another sear or a different car if needed. It took me little longer when I first Installed, However Once I knew how it is done it just takes me less than 5 mins to move the car seat to a different car. or even remove and put it back it just easy. 2. Seems Spacious, comfortable and luxurious. love the looks of the car seat and my Daughter seems to enjoy it as well. 3. Ability to store the belts into a groove on the side so they are not in the way when seating the clild, its very convenient. if I have to get another seat I will look forward to getting NUNA.

ProsSafe, easy to install, stylish, comfortable. -The Rava has multiple enticing safety features. Installation is quick and easy. I love the strap holders. My daughter is super comfortable in her car seat and it‚€™s beautiful!
Best UsesInfant-toddler. Fits conveniently and perfectly in my Subaru Impreza and in my Chevy Traverse, so it is great for smaller and bigger cars alike!

Worth the price! High quality construction. Comfortable. Peace of mind for years to come.
Excellent quality fabric, padding and construction! We use this for our 8lb newborn to grow with her for many years. We feel confident this car seat will keep her safe and hold up well. Heavy duty solid frame. Beautiful look and feel. As an infant, she fell asleep almost immediately on he first ride home from the hospital. I wouldn't hesitate to order again.

Quality Car Seat!
I absolutely love this car seat and more importantly my baby does as well. My little one is super comfortable and usually falls asleep the minute you set him in the car seat. It's such a quality product and so user friendly. The car seat is on the expensive side, but it's well worth it's price tag as are most Nuna products.

I previously had the maxi-cosi pria 85 max. Could not get that carseat to install tight in my seat and ultimately didn't feel safe with the loose install. Returned and got another Rava so now we have this carseat for both cars. Tight and VERY easy install. Great materials and quality. Love it!

Great convertible carseat
So far loving the Nuna Rava. My son feels much more comfortable. He is 4mo and finally does not cry when in the car. Love the color. Very easy to install and fits good in my sedan car. It‚€™s a bit tall in there so it could be a bit tricky to place him in there. Hopefully it will last me some years
ProsFits in small cars Easy install Nice color and fabric Harness holder

Best Car Seat Ever.
This product, although a bit pricey is worth every penny spent! The build quality is superb and ease of use and flexibility is unparalleled. Not to mention the proven protection it provides to our little bundle of joy! Got lucky and got this one discounted during the holiday sale, but I honestly would‚€™ve paid full-price! Shipping was fast, thanks Albee for providing such excellent service!
ProsHeavy (Built like a tank, but soft as a cloud with comfort and luxury built in!) Functional (Sporting 2, yes 2 cup-holders, reclining seat for both front and rear facing installations, extending foot and head rest to allow more space for growing baby!) Comfort (I can‚€™t express enough how comfortable the material feels. It also breaths really easy, feeling cool to the touch even after use!)
ConsPrice (Yes it‚€™s expensive, but you get what you pay for. One of which is confidence that in an event of an accident, your little one will be well protected.)

Awesome car seat
This car seat has been wonderful. Very easy to install, the easy reclining feature is fantastic. We also have a Peg Perego convertible seat which we really like. berween the two I like this one slightly more because of the reclining feature and because this seat is slightly higher so my daughter can see out the windows better.
ProsEasy install Child sits high
ConsTaking the cover off to wash isn‚€™t very easy Straps to secure child aren‚€™t very long - may not be great for some bigger children

This is worth the splurge. So easy to install with a seat belt (both forward facing and rear facing). We also have the Maxi Cosi Pria 85, and it is very hard to get it tight enough in the install. I travel with the Rava (I check it), and it is so easy to install/uninstall while traveling. I can't recommend this seat any more!

Amazing car seat! Well worth the price compared to other brands, as it is a step up in quality, it's easy to install, secure with its latch system, great materials, The leg extender gives more room when rear facing and more support when front facing, and you can opt to recline the car seat before installing it. I highly recommend it!
