I was looking for a car seat for airplane use and car travel once we arrived to our destination. The key things I was looking for: high in safety ratings, lightweight, inexpensive, and of course rated for aircraft travel. This booster seat fits the bill in all four aspects!
1. It is rated by a leading consumer magazine as a "best buy" and has an "excellent" rating for harnessed crash protection and a "very good" rating for crash protection in belt fit/booster mode.
2.It only weighs 8 & 1/2 pounds(compared to his other car seat which is 30lbs), much less weight to lug around the airport!
3. Under $50!
4. It is approved for use, in Harness mode ONLY (which a child needs to weigh 22-40 lbs AND be between 34-43" tall AND be over 1 year old) for aircraft travel.
It was fairly easy to quickly install on the airplane and in the car upon arrival(I did do a trial run BEFORE traveling). The only negative things I could say about this car seat is that it doesn't really have a "handle" to carry it , so It was a little awkward to tote around and the padding is pretty thin. All in all it's Pros really outweigh these minor issues for what I needed to use it for! P.S. The giraffe print is TOO cute!
