Graco Nautilus Elite Group 1/2/3 Car Seat -- Safety and Style

The Graco Nautilus Elite Group 1-2-3 car seat has the same practicality, popularity and safety features that saw the original Nautilus pick up a GOLD AWARD at the prestigious Practical Parenting Awards 2011 for Best Group 1-2-3 Car Seat and a Bronze in the Mother & Baby Awards 2011. The Nautilus Elite also offers a range of additional features to provide extra safety and protection whilst ensuring even greater ease of use.

For added peace of mind for parents whilst travelling, the Nautilus Elite is the first Graco seat to offer Safety Surround Side Impact Protection.

Safety Surround Side Impact Protection provides additional energy absorption in the event of a crash, thanks to the adjustable head support and additional padding and protection, including extra padded body support for children in Group 1, and a five-position adjustable headrest.

Parents can ensure their child is fitted safely, easily and comfortably, as the ‘No Rethread Harness’ removes the worry of not properly re-threading the harness as the child grows. This integrated harness and backrest system simply grows with your child, while the lock-off mechanism ensures safe, secure and easy seat belt installation.

With UK law stating that children must be seated in a car seat or booster seat until they are approximately 12 years of age (135 cm in height), the Nautilus is suitable for any child from nine months to approximately 12 years. This removes the hassle of replacing outgrown car seats.

The armrests and reclining base provide the ultimate comfort for your child -- as well as handy storage compartments providing space for snacks and toys to keep your little ones happy.

The Graco Nautilus Elite Car Seat is a great seat which will be used by our family for years to come.

The construction of seat is solid, feeling well made and secure, a must in car seat! Installing the seat and shoulder strap adjustment is via similar mechanisms to other manufacturers, tricky if you've not installed these before, but easier for those already using car seats.

The drinks holder and storage compartments in the arms a great modern addition and very useful to store snacks or toys for the children.

Previously i have used Britax seats, and only single stage seats, but I don't think this multi-stage seat is a big compromise. The additional years and flexibility to use the same seat for more than one child is much appreciated, although time will tell if it will stand up to years of abuse by my family. Changing the seats between different configurations is again a little tricky, but thankfully not something you will be doing on a regular basis. Some trial and error was needed as it wasn't 100% clear from the manual how to perform this operation.

All in all a great product, very happy to have in our family. The reasons for the 4-star out of what is otherwise a 5-star product is the difficulty to make adjustments (not explained well enough in the manual) and fabric which is stylish but shows dirt easier than other materials I have experienced before, leaving me concerned it might not last as long as the modularity of the product allows.

this is a really nice;y put together child car seat, suitable for children from 9kg (about a year old) to 36kg (heading for 10 years or more). The flexibility is achieved by the modular construction of the seat, with integral harness straps for smaller kids (the car's seatbelt holding the whole assembly) and guides for the cars seatbelt to hold a larger child, removing the middle section of the seat altogether, when the child is 15kg. There are other seats that function this way, I have a Recaro Young Sport which is similar in concept, but rather more spare in design. The seat also has a couple of storage pockets (for storing half chewed foodstuff most likely) and a cup holder, to thoughtfully prevent those driving whilst leaning round to pick up child's drink thrown into the footwell moments. The whole thing can be folded flat for moderately compact storage, and indeed comes packed flat, requiring minor assembly (not tricky, although the manual could be slightly clearer in explaining). The fabrics and structure are robust and tactile. Perhaps not as pleasant to the touch as the Recaro, but certainly not low-rent, and actually quite plush.

It attaches securely to the seatbelt, and is really snug and solid in the car. The process of threading the belt is a little fiddly, but way better than many alternatives that I have tried. There is a notional recline function, but when the seat is really snugly fitted, the hearest of the car won't allow this much travel (and even when freestanding is only about 5 degrees). My boy sleeps happily upright, so no worries for me, but if you need a recliner, this may not be ideal.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've always purchased seats that are stage specific in order to avoid any compromise on safety, and so far all my purchases have been Britax. However I really like the Graco Nautilus Elite, and more importantly, my children like it too. If you are considering a seat that can cope with group 1, 2 and 3 this is an excellent option.

The seat is well made, easy to adjust, feels secure and safe, and the drinks holder and cubby holes in the arms are very useful and really appreciated by the kids. I've tested it with both my eighteen month old (group 1 configuration) and four year old (group 2 configuration), and both children seemed comfortable and happy, and securing them into the seat was easy and straightforward.

Having a multi-stage seat is useful, not just for the extra years you'll get out of the seat, but also for the flexibility it offers if your family has multiple kids and cars. That said, the flexibility in stage adaptation results in compromises that mean this seat will not match the best in class at each stage. There is no ISO fix to keep the seat securely attached when empty (handy if you forget use the seat belt to secure the empty seat), and no padded seat belt chest strap, both of which are useful features on the group 2/3 Britax KIDFIX XP SICT. Likewise there is no top tether for extra impact stability, as available on the group 1 Britax Duo Plus.

My only other reason for not stretching to the full five stars was due to the manual, which is okay but hard to follow in places. For example, converting the seat from group 1 to 2 is quite simple and straightforward once you master it, but I have to say that the manual is not as clear as I would have liked, and contains a couple of errors and rather ambiguous diagrams. Thus a bit of trial and error is needed. It's worth watching the the YouTube video "Changing the Graco Nautilus Elite from stage 1 to stage 2" to get a quick overview before you attempt it.

By Steven Brown TOP 500 REVIEWER on 11 Sep 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Got this as needed a spare seat for grand parents, but have ended up using it in my own, and giving them the old Britax Evolva seat (which I was never impressed with).

Was much easier to install than the Britax, you simply thread the car seat belt through the back and clip it in, then pull the seat belt tight. Even though it looks like you're not covering off a lot of points (as opposed to other seats where you loop through in different locations), the stability of the seat is very good, and I'm happy is quite safe.

In terms of comfort, the seat is good. Nice big chair, feels solid, and the wee cup holder is a nice touch. Maybe doesn't recline quite enough for a child who prefers to be more laid back when sleeping, but it's still pretty good.

Only thing I found that was a bit of a pain was the shoulder strap adjustment. This had a similar mechanism to the Britax, and can be a fiddle before you can release the straps enough if required. Not enough to make the seat annoying, but enough to drop a star off what would otherwise be a 5 star review.

In summary, highly recommended.
