This seat saved my daughter's life. My wife, our 2-day old daughter (at the time) and I were involved in a car accident. My car received heavy rear end damage. I got by a motorcyclist and a very big truck. We were going about at speeds of 35 mph. The paramedics saw my daughter and told my wife and I that she was fine and there was no bruising and no irregular respiratory symptoms. The paramedics and firefighters even were at awe to see that the car seat had not received any damage. They gave us a "good job" thumbs up and told us everything will be fine (except my car).
So I trust this seat and product from this company. At first I bought this because it was a little more around my budget and the positive reviews from other buyers made it more trusting to buy, but now I'm here typing this telling you that this is a sturdy seat from my point of view. Totally up to you if you guys want to buy it, but it saved my daughter's life.
