Summary: It is really simple to install, very secure and fits the car fine. My son seems really comfortable in it, and is nice and high to get a good view. It's not the cheapest seat, but for a safe rear facing seat its worth it.
Summary: This seat is very expensive - but the options for ERF seats with the ability to turn around later on are limited. The came very well packaged and the build quality instantly justifies the money spent on your child's safety. The seats seem very well made - very happy!!
Summary: It is known that rear facing carseats are safer, yet group 1 rearfacing seats can be hard to find. I have recently bought this seat for my 8 month old, as his 0+ maxi cosi was getting tight. This is the best investment I have made, he loves it! The seat is so comfortable and the fabric is so soft!
Summary: My Daughter has one of these seats, bought in Sweden as it was not available in the UK at the time. It is the safest way for under 4yrs to travel. Their necks are not developed to withstand a forward facing whiplash. This is a must buy.
Summary: I bought the BeSafe Izi Combo car seat for my large 6 month old. Brilliant product. My baby happily sleeps in this seat despite its recline position still being quite upright. A very substantial car seat and it gives me peace of mind knowing he can stay rear facing up to age 4. Great service too. Only way to improve service would be to allocate an hourly delivery slot.
Summary: We prevaricated for ages about getting a new car seat for the baby girl. While she hasn't grown out of her baby seat yet weight-wise, she's really long and thin so she was starting to get a bit squashed in it. She never really liked travelling in it and always kicked up a fuss. We did a lot of research before settling on the BeSafe Izi, mainly because it was rear-facing up to four years of age - and all the great reviews and safety testing it had received.
Summary: We got this car seat as it is 5 times safer in a frontal collision than a forward facing seat. This makes complete sense to me and so I had to get rear facing. the izi combi x3 was the only one i could find reviews on (which and a couple of other sites). It's easy to install, but it is big. We have an X5 and the front seat has to move quite a long way forward to accomodate the seat. You can sit comfortably in the front seat - just.
Summary: We bought this seat for our daughter when she was 7 months old and didn't fit safely or comfortably in her infant seat.. She screamed from the moment she was put in until we got her out and when you regularly drive 200 mile journeys that is not pleasant! The first time out in her Izi she was quiet.. she loved being able to see out of the windows and has loads of leg room despite being an enormously tall girl of 18 months.
Summary: We loved this seat so much, that we bought a second one for the second car, or grandparents car. The seat is the best quality of any seat I have seen, and the rear facing positioning is something I would never move away from since trying this. I have no doubt this is the safest option for my son. Highly recommended.
Summary: I bought this seat because of its safety profile and high ranking in european safety tests. It is very bulky, we have a vectra and behind the front passenger seat it really compromises leg room in the front. I think its a price worth paying for safety and the car seat truly doesn't budge but I would have reservations if we had a smaller car. Also in bucket seats it is harder to acheive the reclining position but this is the case with most car seats I've tried.
