"Finally an ERF seat for 3 door car…"
We've been searching for a seat for our second car and were disappointed that all other so called 360 degree seats don't actually let you load the child forward facing and then turn the seat. Without this seat we would have had to put our daughter forward facing in the 3 door car as rear facing was simply too awkward. Delighted with the seat, it's sturdy and my daughter was immediately comfortable.Read moreLess
"Great quality erf seat…"
We bought this for our 9 month old as we want to keep him rear facing for as long as possible but he was outgrowing the maxi cosi pebble. We bought it when there was a deal on at one of the big retailers and saved quite a bit as it is expensive and we got lots of points on our loyalty card too.
It's isofix only and feels really secure when fitted (which is easy to do but you wouldn't want to be taking the seat in and out the car all the time as it is bulky). I found the 5 point harness fiddly to start with, but only as we were used to a 3 point with the pebble, but soon got the hang of it (might sound obvious but it helps to loosen the harness and hang the straps over the side of the seat when you take the child out to save doing this when you put them back in and wrestling to get the straps from behind them). The swivel function is easy to use and really handy. There are also various recline settings too depending on your baby's weight, cleared marked on the base. The seat itself looks really nice too. We have it in black with a white back and it has a modern looking shape. Not used it forward facing and no intention of doing so anytime soon, but nice to know we have the option at a later date if required.
Really happy with the dualfix, we just need more extended rear facing seats on the market to push the prices down!Read moreLess
"Compact size for erf and easy to use…"
We now have 2 of these and changed our besafe izi kid for one. The besafe was so big neither dh nor I could actually get into a good driving position whereas we both can with the dualfix.
We have no intention of using it forward facing but the swivel mechanism makes it so much easier to get lo in and out, ESP now he's at the wriggly fighty octopus stage.
The small size might limit it's life for some but with DS on the 9th centile for weight that wasn't a consideration for us.
Expensive so worth looking out for offers. But overall a great seat.Read moreLess

"Great car seat…"
Wish I'd have brought this car seat from birth I brought it when my dd had grown out of her maxi cosi and I was trying to find a good extended rear facing car seat/ in hindsight this would have been perfect fro birth as the swivel action makes it so much easier to get baby or very wriggly toddlers in and out.
Seems very secure and the shape of it seems to cocoon the baby more which I love- dd always seems very comfortable on hers. Easy to use I would recommend to anyone its a great car seat.Read moreLess

"Easy to fit and useful swivel function…"
We bought this as a ERF group 1 seat that would fit in our small car. DD is comfortable in it, and it has a decent recline for long journeys. The swivel function is useful for getting her in/out of the seat. The only reason this seat doesn't get 5 stars is I can't see it lasting until she is 4, but this is the compromise with fit compared to the BeSafe.Read moreLess
