I was very impressed upon receiving the onboard 35 air protect +. I had an older model for my first child which I thought was safe and had the best head protection but this is quite an improvement on safety and comfort. I've learned to always pull back the fabric when choosing seats to see what the 'bones' are like. This has impact foam lining the entire back of the seat as well as the sides (in addition to the pillowy air cushions for the head.). Most seats are just hard plastic on the back and sides. Where I was extra surprised was in comfort! The back and bottom of the fabric covering are very generously padded. So, once your child outgrows the cozy infant insert, they will still be pampered with a very comfy cushiony feel. The canopy is quite large and has an extra little visor you can flip out or keep under and there's strong velcro now holding the back of it to the seat. The infant insert is in 2 pieces so you can customize as your child grows and it has a separate cushion to cover the hard crotch buckle. This is a posh seat at not a posh price, especially if you buy it here on overstock. I think this is the best infant seat on the market right now if both safety and comfort for your baby are top prioritites. Don't heisitate to order this, and make sure its the air + (I don't think the regular air has the extra foam core and cushioned lining)
Cozy, nice design. I am a little limited because I actually don't have my baby yet, but I was very please when I took this out of the box. I was ready to purchase an infant insert to keep my little one snug, but it comes with one! I was ready to buy soft pads to wrap around the shoulder straps, but it comes with those, too! I had been looking for the perfect carseat for a while to prepare for my third child and I knew exactly what I wanted--something cozy, and large enough that she won't grow out of it or feel confined right away. But I still needed something she'd be snug and comfy in as an infant, because this is a place they will sleep for hours, in car, out of car, etc. I am very please. I was worried that in choosing a larger model (accommodating 35 lbs) that I would lose mobility, but it doesn't feel much larger than the one I had before and I wont have a problem transporting it in and out of the house. I also chose this because I already have a Graco Stroller, and it attaches perfectly. The price was really great, too! However, I could never figure out how to get the rebate that was promised at the time of my purchase.
Just purchased this car seat, after lots of research, for our 3rd grandchild. The last one was born 16 years ago...so lots of great and necessary changes are all part of this car seat. And one of the best parts, is the price, at Overstock, for a product, that will help keep, our newest family member, safe.
