    In general it is quite a good car seat, the straps are adjustable but can get quite fiddly to clip in. The seat can be a bit heavy and clunky to carry around but it is so easy to fit into the base it just clicks straight in. My main criticism is the design of it, when my daughter was newborn she always looked so hunched forward and uncomfortable I wondered about her safety in it but now she's older and can hold her head more she looks quite comfy in it. The hood of the seat as well does not come far enough forward so doesn't protect the baby from sun or rain at all.

    This car seat came as part of my silver cross travel system, its a lovely looking design with a little foot cover and small hood. It's easy to install in the car using seat belts if you don't have or want an isofix base, and fits securely and feels safe. It's not heavy to carry even with a baby in, however can be a little bulky and bangs into your legs when carrying. Only downside is it doesn't look the most comfortable for a newborn, when my daughter was in it she didn't look very comfortable as she was small and her head looked like it was always uncomfortable.

    The car seat it’s self is padded and seems comfy it’s a good design with a little hood and apron the handle moves from front to back just press the two buttons each side
    You do need connectors to put them on a pram but I find the car seat heavy to carry and lift even without a baby in there so makes it harder to take it on and off prams

    I have been using this car seat as part of the Wayfarer travel system. On the whole I would say this is a great car seat, it is comfortable for baby and can be adjusted as they grow. The straps are easy to adjust and can be tightened to ensure safety in car. It also connects easily to the isofix base in the car.
    The only downside with this seat for me is the hood. It doesn’t extend much, so doesn’t shade baby from the rain (comes with a rain cover anyway) or the sun. However this small downside would not stop me from recommending this great car seat!

    I have this as part of a pioneer travel system & love it.
    Easy to adjust straps to different heights as baby grows. Removable newborn insert means the car seat can be used longer. My baby always seems comfortable in his car seat. The product is sturdy and materials are easily cleaned.
    Only 2 issues are that the hood is too short and doesn’t provide much shade for baby. It can also be a bit fiddly to remove the car seat from the pioneer chassis. Neither of these issues would stop me from recommending this product to a friend.

    This car seat is fab it matches my pram and has the compatible clips to put on the pram frame. It is easy to get in and out of the car with or without the matching isofix . This car seat is so easy to use with a great 5 point harness. My baby loves this car seat he goes straight to sleep because it is so comfy and sturdy. Only down fall is it could have a better sun shade

    I bought this as part of a by for with the Wayfarer pram/pushchair. I also have the ISO fix base which makes it so easy to use, just click in and go! It's so simple and saves fiddling around with seatbelts. Although you can also fit in with a seatbelt which is easy to do too, and we do this when we use in my parents car. It's super lightweight which is great as I don't have to struggle carrying it. Overall I'm really pleased!

    Great car seat we love it and it attaches to our pram frame easily, easy to put in the car with or without a base. Only problem is granddaughter is tiny so had to put rolled up blankets down each side for support till I could find a new one. We will come back to this one once she has grown.

    This product has been fantastic for our little boy...he finds it extremely comfortable and we find it easy to use. We bought the isofix base along with the car seat which makes for easy fitting in the car, also used in two other cars without isofix and was easy to fit in as well. We have never had any issues with this car seat and easy to clean.

    We were kindly gifted this car seat, we have it in all black and it looks beautiful. I love the strap system and how easy it is to tighten and loosen the straps however our little girl was born quite small and just didn’t look like she fitted quite right and seemed a bit uncomfortable. She has grown now and sits in it much better but we have invested in the newborn insert now just to be sure she’s safe. This is a separate purchase and I feel it should be included with the car seat as I don’t feel it is suitable for all newborn babies.

    I love love love our simplicity car seat. We use it with the isofix which makes things easier but it’s pretty easy to use either way. It’s such a stylish car seat and very comfortable for baby. Also great with the adapters for the pushchair to make life that little bit easier if you’re little one is asleep when you get to your destination.

    We love this product. We’ve used it since my daughter was born and the extra fitting you can get to suit smaller babies really helped.
    We also have the iso fix with it that makes getting it in and out of the car an absolute dream!
    The only fault I have is that it is very heavy which is a pain if you’ve got other stuff to get out of the car and you’re on your own. But this is a problem with lots of car seats.

    We got this seat as part of the silvercross travel system and for this it is brill - easy to use and transfer baby from car onto the pram whilst baby is sleeping. The seat feels safe and now that baby is a little older she seems happier and more comfortable in the seat. As a newborn, baby seemed a little small for the seat and was quite unhappy in the seat.

    This is a great car seat. I brought my baby home from hospital in the seat and it’s still going strong 7 months later. The seat itself is made well, safe, secure and durable when used daily. I love that all the bits can come off easily meaning it can be washed which is needed if baby is sick or messy in the seat. It fits any car well and is easy to strap in safely. It’s not heavy, therefore it can be carried easily in and out of places easily. The car seat is very sturdy and will last a long time. I love it. Only downside is straps can be a little stiff to adjust, however this does mean it’s safe as you know it fits baby correctly as adjustments are made.

    I love this car seat and so does my son. We've tried 2 car seats and he prefers the simplicity by far. He can see what's going on if being pushed in the car seat, whilst still being comfy to fall asleep

    Car seat fit easily into the isofix base. But the age range on the seat is 0+ which we found very unsuitable as the seat is so up right, my child's head would fall forward when asleep in the chair. I'd recommend it for an older child with maybe more head strength. The straps are easy to adjust and clip in. But is quite a heavy seat in comparison to others.

    This Infant carrier style car seat is good and works well when teamed with the isofix base. I really did not like using this for the first 2 months. I felt baby’s head was just floating about and I just didn’t think there was enough support there. I feel a newborn insert could be developed to eliminate this. The seat is soft and padded, the colour coordinating cosytoes and hood Make this look good and match the Silver cross travel systems.

    Great product for being able to use in the multi system. When they are so young being able to just clip them in to pushchair rather than moving them is so helpful. It is a little heavy to take to and from car however it is only to be used up to about 9 months. Worth the short amount of time you need it for how comfortable baby is and making a new parents life easier

    I love this car seat, it looks great & my son always looks comfortable in it. We have had this seat from birth & the fact that my son is a chunky boy and still fits in it so well 6 months on says it all. Sadly we will be moving him into another car seat before long and that it only because of how heavy he is getting and nothing to do with the quality or design of this seat.

    We have driven long journeys with this car seat [ we did stop every 2 hours for 30 mins ] however G was happy to travel & seemed to be very comfortable all of the way there and home. I love how simple yet sleek it looks and compliments his pram beautifully.

    I really like the little cover for his feet too, it attaches so simple & speaking of simply it is very easy to fit into the car - this is a must for me as I’m not very good at things like this lol! We have nothing negative to say about this fantastic car seat, it’s such a shame he has to switch to another, I will be storing this away ready for baby number 2 :)

    A fab car seat which we chose so it can fit easily on the pioneer travel system. It looks smart and is really easy to fit and use. Baby loves it and settles well in it. However I don't like how easily his head flops forward when he is sleeping and I think the canopy could be a little bigger for when you use it as a pushchair attachment. Generally I think it's a great car seat, great quality and easy to use but definitely not perfect.

    We found this car seat to be extremely heavy making it difficult to carry with the added weight of a baby. We used this car seat to transport our newborn home from hospital however it didn’t look comfortable or supportive. We stopped using this seat until he was around three months and able to hold his head up unsupported as only then it looked to be more comfortable. The straps are also tricky to get over the babies arms without disturbing them, so no use for a sleeping baby.
