Description: The Combi Shuttle Infant Car Seat is a lightweight car seat with a feature that most other car seats don't have: an anti-rebound bar for improved safety. This car seat accommodates babies from birth up to 22 pounds and 29 inches long. It is compatible with all Combi strollers. The Combi Shuttle Infant Car Seat features an easy to use 5-point harness height adjustment system with 7 incremental adjustments giving every baby the perfect fit. The adjustable headrest area is fully lined with energy absorbing EPS foam, and the breathable seat cover is removable and washable. This car seat can be used with or without the included base. Made in the USA.
Why we like it: Weighing in at just under 9 pounds, the Combi Shuttle Infant Car Seat is one of the lightest portable car seats on the market. This makes for easier carrying once a heavy baby is added to the mix. It comes in a variety of stylish and breathable fabrics. What really sold us on the Combi Shuttle Infant Car Seat though, was its anti-rebound bar. No other car seat offers this additional safety feature. Not only does the bar provide added security, it also serves as an extra bar to hold on to when carrying this seat around. Since the Combi Shuttle Infant Car Seat can be used safely with or without its base, it is a good choice for city goers who may often take their baby in taxis. It is recommended to use the base however, as it makes seat installation easier and more secure. The base installs into the car using either the LATCH system or seat belts. We also like that Combi is an American company, with products made in the USA.
Things we wish were different: The most common complaint we hear about the Combi Shuttle Infant Car Seat is that the mechanism that attaches and separates the seat to and from the base is difficult to use. Most parents report that after using it for a few times however, it locks in and out smoothly and without any trouble.
