We started using this seat for my daughter when she was 6 months old. She's 2.5 now and still uses it. It's SO easy to install... everyone can do it... baby'sitters, grandparents, non parents, everyone! There are 9 recline options and it tells you which ones you can use RF and FF. The recline settings make it fit literally in any car. The sides are a bit deeper than I'd like. The kids can't see out which I know isn't important, but it would have been a nice bonus. It's very well padded and comfortable. Removing the cover to wash is honestly a pain so for my son, I plan to get the Nextfit Zip. I've only taken my daughter's apart to wash once and the washer didn't even get it totally clean, so now I save myself the trouble and just vacuum and spot clean it. It is a pretty heavy seat so if you have to travel with it or switch it to different cars frequently, It might be a pain. Overall love the seat though and will be buying another one soon!
