This car seat was great for travel and everyday use while we waited for our household goods to arrive from overseas during our PCS from Japan to California. It is easy to use and it's small size made it easy to maneuver through airports. The only issue I had was the croch area is a bit to tight, especially for boys.

Great seat but be prepared to install
February 12, 2024
Amazing concept and great travel car seat for toddlers. The first time we used it was on a trip to NYC in an Uber and I’ll be honest and say that in crazy JFK ride share trafffic I felt a lot of pressure to install the seat quickly. It isn’t hard to do but in the dark in a car you’re not familiar with, it can be more difficult since we had practice with our cars at home. When we used it in a rental car at the airport it was much easier since we were in a parking lot and had all the time we needed :)
  • Lightweight, folds up easily.
  • Not for situations that require you to be fast

So Compact and Lightweight
September 14, 2023
This carseat is great for travelling. It can be a little confusing to use so I recommending testing it out before you travel. The crotch strap is very short and was tight for my 3 year old, but he was okay with it for shorter drives on our trip. For the price, it really should come with a travel bag. The separate travel bag for the WayB is pricey so we hand carried this on the plane.

This travel car seat is amazing! Was hesitant to pull trigger based on cost but I’m so glad I did. We traveled to FL with our toddler and this seat was a lifesaver! So lightweight and portable! Also easy to install and uninstall in Uber or taxi from airport to our final destination. Comes with a travel bag to transport and easily fits in large suitcase when folded. Green color very pleasing and gender neutral. Our toddler measures in 75 percentile for height and was still able to see our window while strapped in. Would really recommend to anyone looking for a travel car seat option.

Lightweight car seat
January 10, 2022
Looks good and works as described. However I don't know how it holds up in an actual accident. The crotch buckle is still too short and was uncomfortable for my oldest child. This would be of good use when traveling, and for compact packing, but I think it's just fine to use a lightweight convertible car seat (weighs the same as the WAYB Pico) and an inexpensive bag to carry through the airport. It's too expensive unless you're traveling with your kids a couple times a year, which I don't think many are doing at the present moment...

Amazing for travel!
November 29, 2021
Things I love:

1. Truly fits into a backpack- easy and lightweight
2. Yes it is expensive, but when you consider the hassle of checking a regular carseat or the cost of renting at your destination- this makes a lot of sense!
3. It is super easy to use on a plane, and it made my toddler feel like he was in his carseat (i.e. he didn't feel like he could ask to get out and he didn't try)

One annoying thing, as others have mentioned- the crotch strap is too short and that will limit the time we can use this as each kid grows. I don't know why- hopefully they improve this.

Best travel companion
November 28, 2021
I have borrowed my friend's seat one too many times and finally got our own one of these! My child much prefers this over the more "standard" travel car seat and as parents, we love it for the ease of bringing it around!

Purchased mostly for travel but very much useful for carpool/the occasional "additional kid to pick up from school" scenario, or visiting family.

I dont know why I held off on buying it for so long!

  • - Very lightweight!
  • - Easy to bring around when we travel and/or when an extra seat is needed
  • - Install has a learning curve, but is fairly easy once you learn how to do it
  • - Sits much lower than all seats do, so some kids who are used to looking out the window may need to get used to not seeing anything

I have a smaller almost 3 year old that needed a carseat for the middle 3rd row seat of our Lincoln navigator. First off the carseats safety seems very poor. The design is not comfortable even for a small child, I can't imagine larger children sitting in this at all. The price is completely overrated for the overall quality of the carseat. This carseat does fit in the middle seat however makes it extremely difficult with its design to buckle the other seats, which makes the other kids horribly frustrated. I am a mother of 6 kiddos. I have used many different styles and brands of carseats, and this is by far the worst carseat that we have ever own. Actually this is the only carseat that we can say we dislike.

Albee gives an awesome healthcare discount, so I happily took advantage of that. I wish we got this sooner bc we’ve had it for one week abs it’s been used several times already, primarily by the nanny. It’s very sturdy yet light weight. It buckles in tightly to the car, so is actually not THAT easy to take in and out. It’s also not very easy to fold for storage. But that’s ok. This is going to be staple during the summer when we travel more. I also wish it came with a booster seat so that my 2.5 yo could see outside the window like in her usual car seat.

This is the way to go if you are traveling with a 3 year old... feels so much safer and more solid than other lightweight travel options out there. It's easy to install, durable, and compact for storing. That said, this is not made for every child. My lanky - tall and skinny - 3.5 year old fits well and rides very comfortably; but we would not be able to use this for my other child who is not as string bean-y. I suggest packing this in a wheeled suitcase (we used a hard shell carry on) if you do not use this on the plane. We have done both. Or, perhaps purchase the bag that is made for it... I have heard good things.

My husband wanted a car seat that my toddler could use in his Porsche 911 and this fits the bill. It's so much easier to install than our britax click tight car seat and our toddler loved being able to try it out. I think that this will come in handy for traveling once COVID restrictions lift a bit in the future as well.

I had been eyeing this seat for quite some time, my 2.5yr old is now big enough where she met the size requirements so I finally pulled the trigger and we are loving the convenience of this seat! The install is super easy, and has allowed us to use Uber/Lyft with no concerns. The folded seat fits easily in the basket of our stroller, so we haven’t had to worry about carrying it around. I purchased this seat in the middle of our travels, so we will use it flying home and I was concerned that it wouldn’t fit on my airport car seat dolly, but it fits perfectly! I am looking forward to installing this seat easily on the plane. If you are an avid traveler, and are considering this seat, you won’t regret it at all!

Great quality, light weight travel seat

I’m impressed with this seat. Not only is it super light weight and sleek, the quality is amazing- as it should be at this price point. I feel comfortable using this as a backup seat in Daddy’s car for the few times he needs to bring our 4 year old to activities but also look forward to its ease and convenience while traveling.
My daughter is always complaining that her back is hot, this seat seems to allow the airflow that our other car seats lack.
We chose the Albee exclusive woodland color and I’m so glad we did, it’s so unique and beautiful.

Great travel car seat for space saving
January 4, 2021
We have been faced with traveling internationally during Covid with a busy 22 month old. This seat was a life saver. We didn’t want a bulky car seat as we were going for several months and US car seats are not legal in our destination. We used it to restrain our busy boy on our first packed domestic flight and then for take off, landing and meals on our long haul flight. It was perfect for our needs and we will continue to use it as a travel seat until we no longer need one. I read a lot of reviews about the crotch strap being annoying, this may be the case for kids not in diapers but it didn’t bother our boy who is on the larger side.

Great for people in the city/on the go
October 17, 2020
My wife and I bought this since we live in NYC and do not have own car. We really like how easy it is to install in ubers or rentals and the fact that my son finds it comfortable for 1+ hour trips. Only negatives I have is that the seat is low, so my son can't see out the window, and the locking mechanism for the seat are both metal, so it's already getting a lot of wear and tear, and we've only used it a handful of times. Overall I 100% recommend.

  • Compact and fit under most full size strollers.
Best Uses
  • For anyone in the city, or anyone who needs a compact and light car seat.

LOVE everything about these car seats
October 14, 2020
I've been wanting to buy these ever since they were on Kickstarter but the price of them has held me back. Saw that these were on sale and had to snatch them up ASAP. They did not disappoint. We used to have 2 very big and bulky travel car seats and hated everything about them. These WAYB were a godsend. They are so lightweight and small but very sturdy and secure at the same time. Win win. So quick to set up in our rental car and easy to take out. These save us so much time and effort. We love to travel and will be using these car seats from now on. Our two toddlers also love sitting in these too.

Bottom seat belt too short
October 11, 2020
This is a great idea in theory but for the price I wish it had been designed a bit better. I have a little guy who is 3 and a half and small for his age but the seat belt that comes up through his legs is too short so it lands down on his crotch so he can’t put his legs together. And he can’t press the button to let him self out when we get home. So that is disappointing. Otherwise it is very light and simple to use.
  • Seatbelt between legs is too short and needs to be like 1 inch longer.

Like the sustainability, but not very user friendly
September 24, 2020
This seat was purchased as our alternate car seat in my work truck, and to use during flights (this was just before Covid, ha!). I was drawn to it by the portability and use of sustainable materials. We have yet to test it on a plane (damn you Covid), but it seems like it would be great for that. As a seat, it's...fine. The website states that it meets all US standards regulated by the NHTSA and FAA, as well as FMVSS 213 and 302. I guess my heart rebels at the thought that the gossamer mesh head- and backrest on this seat are equivalent to the mega coccoon of plastic and styrofoam in our everyday britax seat.

But I think I crossed into irritation at this seat with the straps. In a nutshell, they do not slide easily and are a bear to adjust. The top tether was especially difficult, which may be compounded since the seat is installed in the back of a pickup cab. The strap WILL NOT slide through the pinch point metal loop where the tether hook is attached. And for some reason I find the other four strap adjusters (2 for the bottom LATCHes, and 1 on each side for the seatbelt harness) nearly impossible to adjust. It's like you have to pinch the buckle and push the strap through to make it slide. A 2-hand operation, and EACH SIDE of the harness needs to be adjusted. So every ride involves cursing and elbowing the child in the face as I adjust the strap on the far side of the seat.

I do like all the thought that went into making sure the straps and accoutrements would be tucked away when the seat is being toted. The bag the seat came with ripped immediately at the handles, so if we ever fly again, we'll have to come up with a new way to tote it around. This seat is alright, beautiful to look at, and I appreciate the sustainability angle, but still not a perfect product. I would recommend to a friend who likes to travel, but would let them know my hangups.

Very light

I really like it, it’s very light so perfect for traveling, easy install. The only thing is that the clips are hard to take off when unbuckling like I had to do it two 3 times and I still would not be able to get it off, I tried it on the airplane also and I went with United and I’m guessing because the seats are smaller he was pushed to much to the front, he looked awkward so I took it off .

We were looking for a safe car seat that would fit in a truck in the middle seat for a trip we were taking. This seat is perfect. It is also perfect for airplane travel and folds up nicely. The only downfall is when our toddler fell asleep we had to find a way to support her head as it doesn’t recline like her other car seat.

Versatile Traveling Must Have
April 15, 2020
I have taken this car seat on a 14 hour international flight to Asia. It came in very handy on the flight especially when I was traveling alone with a 2 year old. My son has always been active but this seat kept him in place during the long flight. When he wanted to relax, I just let him out of the seat and play at the foot rest area. When I arrived in Taipei, Taiwan, it was a cinch to take it with me whenever I needed to be riding in a car. It was a relief for me, for I did not have to look for car seat rental or to beg a family member to spare one during our stay. :)

Just a friendly reminder based on my own experience. When checking in for your flight, some airlines may give you grief on taking the car seat on the plane and want you to check it in instead. Just show them it is indeed FAA approved for in-flight use. The indication label is located on the flip side of the seat. Another problem I ran into was in-flight seating arrangement: A car seat can only be installed on a window seat so be sure of it when you book your flight. I did not know about it when I booked my flight but I was lucky enough to switch with the window person.

We just bought this one for our 2-yr-old to use in our sedan and so far we all love it! We usually take her in our SUV with a Clek installed but since it is super heavy we find it inconvenient to move the seat to our sedan when we have the need. WAYB has always been on our watch list since the beginning before it is even being sold in the store and we are glad to finally made the decision to make this purchase!

September 15, 2019
I have a five and a half, three and a half, and one and a half years old kids, we went to Europe, and used the chairs in the plane (8 hrs), in the train (3 hrs average) and in the car.
The sits were not only very comfortable but also very light to carry and install, the cover bag is very convenient for carrying them plus you can add staff on them since they are backpacks.
We are very happy with this chairs and we can’t wait for our next trip to SA to use them!

So convenient & functional
September 4, 2019
Just used this for the first time on a 14 hour round trip and very pleased. I was worried about my toddler napping but she slept well- the head support for this is more upright than a regular car seat though, so we had to support her head/neck with a rolled up blanket. As she gets older I’m sure this will be less of a worry. I really love that the seat covers are washable for spills. I also discovered I can use a ‘mommy hook’ to clip onto my travel stroller without it tipping- even without my kid in it! Game changer for city/car-free living.

I was looking to purchase another car seat for my kid then I saw WAYB Pico. I didn't know a (forward facing) car seat can be so light and still pass all the safety tests. I decided to give it a try and so far I really love the fact that it is so easy to use and so light to carry around if necessary. We are planning to travel and now I don't even have to worry about renting a car seat, or not being able to keep my kid safe in a taxi or on an airplane.

  • great for small passenger cars, won't invade neighboring passenger's space like all carseats in the market
  • safety harness isn't as easy to adjust as other car seats, but it's not really a negative given the design
