This is a very easy to install and use car seat. The quick release that relieves the tension on the shoulder straps comes in handy every time. They are the perfect tightness every time my son is in the chair and then loose when removing him so it's easier to get him out. Compared to a lot of the other seats that I looked at it seems to have a decent amount of padding.
I had done in-store test runs with about a dozen seats. The Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 was the only one that felt had the features I was looking for and actually 'fit' my 2 year old twins' smaller than average stature. It was the only seat my they didn't fuss in when we 'tested' them in the store, they actually WANTED to sit in it which had not been the case for most of the other seats and especially their rear-facing seats. The cup holder and cubbies were nice feature for their toys. 5 point harness system is great! Adjustments to tighten and loosen are a sinch and the design/location/access of the release valve is GENIOUS! The lumbar/hip cushion support and shoulder belt/neck pads are great at keeping my tikes comfortable on long rides (2 hours). Head support is good. The 'recline' feature however is okay. I cant say the 'recline" feature made a drastic difference in keeping the childrens heads from falling forward while they napped on long car rides. It was 50/50 from what I observed in my own vehicles (SUV & hybrid compact)- one toddler chose to rest their forhead against the side impact cushion, I inserted a stuffed animal under the other toddlers chin to help direct it to the side impact cushion and keep the head from falling forward. One handed adjustable headrest is nice. Overall cushioning is acceptable. The assembily and installation of the seats were very simple. Though I would have liked keeping them backwards facing a bit longer, the safety standards of the seat are reasuring. The twins are very happy with their seats... so is this mom.
After surviving a head on collision with my daughter in the car, I reviewed many, many car seats. This is a fantastic product with solid, heavy construction. Many options for children of various heights and weight. After the brief assembly, it was immediately obvious that this is a superior product among other car seats. I would recommend to all of my friends and I'm looking in to purchasing 2 more for the grandparents to use in their cars.
This is a great buy. Best car seat I've ever owned. Easy to buckle and unbuckle.
I love this carseat. My 13 month old enjoys his cupholder and his cubby holes on each side. He puts his toys in them. Its comfortable and very cushiony. I like the fact that its heavy to. I know its not going to move from side to side when I turn a curve because we live on a curvy road. The only thing I don't like about it is that when my son falls asleep his head tends to lean forward instead of propped up on the side. Other than that it is a good carseat.
This car seat will grow with my child! Coolest car seat i have seen!
Just bought this one for my granddaughter, she had outgrown the other one. Cons, it takes up a lot of the back seat and the arm rests are somewhat of a hindrance in getting the kid in & out. Other than that, it's good. I'm buying another one for the other granddaughter soon.
This is NOT a true convertible car seat! I bought this seat for my son and it can not be installed rear-facing to accommodate the new regulations for car seats. I had to return it to get a true convertible car seat. Thankfully, Walmart was wonderful with the return process. This is only for children big enough to face foward.
I researched awhile before buying a new car seat for my little girl and I'm so glad I found this one, just wish I would've found it with my first two children. This seat is safe most importantly and I feel my daughter is really protected. Secondly its comfy. She sleeps well in it and there is plenty of room for growth. Great cupholder that is easy to reach too. This seat is a bit heavy but great quality, a bit more expensive than others but WELL worth the price for the safety of your child. We love it!
Very easy to get my child in and out. My 2 year old loves to buckle it herself but is unable to unbuckle it. (Which is good)
Pads and cushions come off easily for cleaning.
Easy to adjust as your child grows.
The little "cubby" holes are great for storing toys and sunglasses.
Each grandparent also has one in their vehicles.
Graco makes great quality car seats. I highly recommend them.
This is a well made and nice looking Car Seat. The seat covers come out easily for cleaning and are simple to reinstall. The chest clasp is really hard to unlatch, almost too hard.
This is an amazing car seat!!! Graco is excellent brand. Very easy to install. My son is 18 months old and he loves it.
I bought my first Carseat with a Graco travel system. I fell in love with not just the product but the brand. It was an obvious choice to buy another Graco when it was time to buy a new car seat. I couldn't be happier with this car seat. I bought my youngest daughter hers recently after having my four year olds for 3 years. Even after 3 years it is in great condition. I love the storage in the arm rest, it's a great feature to help keep my car clean. Its also a great size for any car it fits well in my truck and honda civic. I also love that I purchased this for my 18 month old and am still able to use it now that she is almost 5. Besides the great features of their products, they have amazing customer service. They mail user Manuels for free, they are quick to reply to any questions or concerns and they are always curtious. I highly recommend any Graco product.
I just love this seat. It is so easy to use and adjust as your child grows older. No worry about having to buy another car seat since this one works up to 100 lbs. My child just loves the compartments to put her toys and sunglasses in. My husband had another brand but I made him give his away just so he could get the same seat as mine. Way to go, Graco on this product!
I absolutely love Graco products. I just purchased this seat for my 3 year old daughter. She had outgrown her Comfortsport convertible seat so we were looking for an upgrade. I knew I wanted a Graco because that is all I have owned for all 3 of my children but didn't know which one. I chose the nautilus because it had all of the features that I was looking for. It is very well made a quite heavy, but I feel like it is very solid and very safe. I am confident about my daughter using it.
The 5 point harness is the best option for your child's safety. We found out how great Nautilus car seats are after a truck plowed into the back of us. My grand daughter barely moved. I am so thankful for such a great product.....
I love that I can keep my growing preschooler in a 5 point harness. He loves it and it is not bulky like a lot of other car seats. You cannot go wrong with this purchase!
We bought this for our daughter who just turned 3 in April and has outgrown her convertible seat. She has had issues with seats before by not liking the fabric or just the seat overall but she loved this seat.
I love the way my older child fits the Nautilus. If you are buying a car seat for a child older than 2, this is the one I would recommend. The Harness goes to 65 lbs to stay safer longer and the height wings move up as the child gets taller too. The wings also keep the seatbelt on the correct part of the shoulder when in booster mode. The only negative thing is I wish the cup holders came off, it makes it a little wide, especially if you're trying to fit car seats side-by-side.
This seat has been a fantastic car seat for us. My son is comfortable and it is incredibly easy to use.
