Have tried several car seats for my daughter who is now one year old, including one for three times this price, and think this is probably the best. It's pretty simple with no bells and whistles, which sometimes with baby stuff is a relief. The straps are easy to adjust and comfortable. The seat itself has to be secured in place by means of the car's seatbelt, which is quite easy to do compared to others we've tried and stays securely in place. The pink/black combo looks great too. Overall very happy with this.
