This is a great booster car seat. The ratings were stellar and it is very comfortable. It looks "big kid" but it still is much safer than the bottom only booster. We love it!
I bought this transitional car seat when my kids outgrew their baby seat, around 30lbs. It features a removable back to transform into a basic booster for larger kids (up to 100 lbs) until they are legally allowed to ride in cars without boosters (I think it's 80 lbs and 4'9"?)
There are belt adjustments on both sides so you can freely move the seat to different locations in your vehicle. There are also popout cup holders, a 3-sided head support, and 2 teeny reading lights (I'll confess, I have never put the batteries in because I just know they'll be drained quickly - my kids will certainly forget to turn them off!).
This is a fairly basic model, and while it may seem a little flimsy, once positioned properly in your vehicle it does the job perfectly. You'll quickly learn that big kid boosters don't need to be fancy - they just need to prop your kids up a little so the crossbody seatbelt fits appropriately. The best part about the light construction is that it's convenient to switch from car to car as needed. These types of seats to not need to be anchored as you are using your car's own seatbelt, not a harness mounted to the carseat (like a baby carseat).
Bottom line: A good basic convertible car seat - thumbs up!
