How do you like it? The folding feature looks really nice. Appears well made, and the price is comparable to others with the same features. Hope to get some feedback...Thanks!

It is quite nice :)

I like it best for kids about age 5-8, as other younger kids are too small and older kids are too tall, in general. It's pretty wide, and can be more challenging to buckle than narrower seats in a middle position with a lap/shoulderbelt, but works fine in wider window seats.

It's only "ok" for sleeping, which is another reason to wait till a kids are a little older and don't sleep as often in the car.

I like the padding, and the quality is good, and the fold feature is nifty and easily fits in a small trunk or overhead compartment on a plane.

Hi, I've been looking for boosters lately and was looking (online research) at the Britax Parkway and the Compass B500 (and then heard of the Recaro Start through that reading).

I found these links that I just LOVE. I can't remember from what site - I think Car Safety.org. The mom is a car seat safety tech, I think. I really liked the "real world" view of seeing her two different kids in all the boosters and her comments on what their heights and weights were in those photos. Just SO helpful!
