Bought this for my grandson for everyday use and he is 9 months. Its high tech, major safety features, lots of cushion for comfort. The side head airbags work as great stability for the childs head and feel like pillows. The installation instructions were sort of vague. Be advised: This is a carseat for a larger sedan if you need rear facing seat. This is not a seat for say...a Honda Civic. 1. Quality construction and fabrics 2. More cushioned for child comfort that most seats I've seen 3. Rear or forward facing 4. Several height adjustments for side air pillows as your child grows 5. Belt adjustments and side air pillows are very easy to operate 6. Multiple slots for belt adjustments. Most seats have like 3 and you have to force your child into a prefitted size. This seat has many and trust me, you will need them. 7. Large seat, built to last and its worth the money. Overall this was a fantastic purchase!
