Summary: The seatbelt webbing folds and pinches in the clasps. It's a very large seat it causes the passenger in our Yukon to sit very far forward towards the dashboard. The baby loves it. They need to come up with a better way of leveling the base than using a towel or is swimming noodle, But there is a lot of play in The ability to level it, Allowing me to recline it enough so he can sleep Comfortably.
Summary: Top notch quality when you are looking to keep your child safe, it is so well padded and so well made you can see why it lives up to the orbits name. I bought this as a gift and I know it will give them peace of mind.
Summary: December 2nd, 2012
This is our second purchase of the orbit baby toddler car seat. Our older daughter is still in her car seat, so we needed to purchase one for our younger daughter. It is a solid car seat superior to any other car seat I have seen on the market by how well constructed it is. Our younger daughter is still rear facing so we are able to use the orbit base which allows us to swivel the car seat to get her in easily. I love the swivel feature of the orbit.
Summary: I purchased this swivel base and G2 seat for its "ease of use?".... Not the case. Now, I am a good wrench turner having built numerous cars and custom motorcycles and this base and seat tested every ounce of patience I had. Adjusting and installing the system was a nightmare. The footprint and weight is enough to make cry once you open the boxes.
My wife couldn't possibly use this setup as she is a petit 5 foot frame.
Summary: We were sad when our baby outgrew the Orbit Infant Car Seat. Good news is that we can continue using the Orbit Car Seat Base with the Toddler Car Seat while the baby as long as the baby is in rare-facing position. When a baby is over 20 l.b., being able to put her in the seat and then rotate the seat really saves my back. Baby is also very happy in this plush seat.
Summary: We have the infant travel system with Orbit, so this next transition makes sense! It's nice to use with the stroller and the 360 base system is genius! The one thing that you must be warned of, it is VerY heavy. tough to move big baby in the seat from the base to the stroller. ...and everyone compliments the system!
Summary: This is a very safe and comfortable carseat. It is a little on the big side, so can feel like it takes up most of the backseat of a smaller car or midsized SUV. At times, I have trouble getting my little one out of the buckle (it sticks). It is very easy to install and fits securely on the seat.
Summary: We have the infant travel system and bought this so that we could use the car seat base and stroller. Although you can use toddler seat with the stroller and seat base.... it's nearly impossible to do with the child in the seat because it is so heavy, which defeats the purpose. Plus, the toddler seat seems too heavy for the stroller wheels and it's quite difficult/heavy to push around. And you can only use the car seat base for another year (or less!
