This travel system has some great features, but some key conveniences are lacking. The car seat part is secure and keeps my son secure with the straps. It fits securely in the base in the car and also is secure on the stroller. The basket in the bottom of the stroller is big, but when you have the car seat on top of the stroller you must recline the seat all the way back which blocks access to your items in the storage basket. This is very inconvenient since I feel like I am in and out of the diaper bag many times with a baby. There are two cup holders, but there is no tray because where a tray would be to hold your cell phone or other small items the button you push to start the folding of the stroller is there. The shade is nice but it would be better if there were a plastic see through part so you could keep an eye on the baby without undoing the whole shade. I've never used the bassinet feature where you can fold up the padding on the leg rest and attach it so it becomes like a bassinet for a small baby or to change a diaper. I don't think it has hardly any padding in the area where the baby sits. Its very hard actually and I will be adding some padding for my son when he gets old enough to sit in it. The tray is nice. I like the gender neutral color. It folds up nicely and is easy for me to pick up and put in the trunk. Durability The wheels on the stroller are very durable. They also have a feature where you can lock the wheels so they do not swivel and just roll straight ahead which is nice for outdoor park adventures or when you are on grass or gravel. The way the stroller folds up is easy and is not hard on the stroller. The button that you push to start the folding seems durable. The handles are coated in rubber for good grip. Versatility As a travel system it works well to get you through the first years of the baby changing so much from the car seat part to the stroller. I like that the system fits together and I know it will all work together because it came as a set. Ease of Use All aspects of this travel system are very easy to use and are sturdy. Safety Safety was my number on concern on picking a car seat. After I narrowed down the safest ones I then choose from there. I think the bases install easily and are very safe and the car seat is sturdy and safe and I feel very comfortable with my son in it. Ease of Cleaning The pads come off easily and are washable. The pads do not shrink in the wash but to be on the safe side I would let them air dry rather than putting them in the dryer.
