Great for travel, does stand by its claim for car seat in a bag

I was skeptical of the design when I first saw it on Kickstarter. Sure it was small but I didn't think it was safe.
However now when I needed to make a trip and didn't wanna rent a car seat at crazy prices, I thought I'd give it a try.
The size is indeed quite small and easily fits in a tote or the outer zipper of a backpack. I had practiced it at home before we left so I didn't spend much time setting it up in the rental car. It was indeed safe and kept my child tethered safely. She didn't jerk forward when there were hard brakes and the adjustable back strap ensured the seat belt wasn't cutting into her neck.
It is not meant to replace a regular car seat as for the size, it cannot be enforced with a lot of foam for comfort. Also, the child isn't at the window level so missed the thrill of the ride. However the company has recently designed another car seat called HiFold which solves those problems although ,as expected, is larger than this.
For what this is meant to be, it solves the issues and is a great design. Seems sturdy as well so should last until my 5 year old outgrows this. Definitely recommended for travel.
