Excellent product! I had been using a towel to keep my daugther's car seat out of sunlight when the car was parked but I decided to try this and I'm so glad I did. It folds up really small for storage and has an elastic and toggle to keep it wrapped up in a smaller parcel. Most importantly, this product WORKS, it does exactly what it's meant to. Previously, when I was using a towel to cover the car seat, the car seat was still hot and the metal buckles were still quite hot to the touch as well. This cover keeps the car seat and buckles cool to the touch. Perfect! It keeps my daughter from being burned by the metal buckles and the uncomfortable feeling of sitting on a hot seat. Not to mention you shouldn't leave a car seat out in direct sunlight as it can damage your car seat. I would think this would cover any car seat on the market. My daughter's car seat is huge and it still fits great over it (I live in the UK so it's a European car seat called a Maxi Cosi Mobi and it's a huge beast!). I highly recommend this product, especially for the hot summer months!

I originally purchased one of these for my oldest daughter's car seat in early 2009. At the time, we had a Graco Snugride for her, and this fit just fine over it. We live in Arizona, and keeping the car seat is a must in the heat, and this product did a good job of keeping the car seat warm (instead of flaming hot) and making sure that the buckles didn't burn her when we came back. When she moved on to a big girl car seat (Graco MyRide 65), the shade still fit over it. We've used it now for two years and never had any issues with it tearing, breaking, or losing elasticity around the edges. We just purchased another one for our youngest daughter's car seat, if that tells you anything about how much we like this product! I gave it 4 stars out of 5 instead of 5/5 because it just doesn't fold back up the way the manufacturer claims it does. You just kind of have to ball it up, put the strap around it, and toss it back in the car.

(Orig review: August 2012)
Prior to this I was using a thick sheet to cover our car seat (Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite Convertible Car Seat, Nitron). I desired something a bit more "neat," lightweight, and easier to store.

USE
Deploying this with one hand can be difficult, but I have not found it to be impossible. To aid in one-hand use I sort of peel it off and tuck under the car seat rather than completely remove it so that I can just pull/stretch it back over when ready.
I have a very bulky car seat and this stretches fine to provide more than adequate coverage.

PERFORMANCE
Thus far I have been more than satisfied with the results. Once stretched on it stays on; no issues of slipping once in place. The car seat (buckles) remains a temperature in which I can still safely use it even on our hottest days.

DURABILITY
The product is quite thin. I expect to have to replace it at some point, but with care it should last long enough to not make this fact a concern. For those who completely remove it to store there are elastic bands sewn in to help in neatly and safely storage.

BOTTOM LINE
I recommend this item. In fact, I'm purchasing another one for our other car seat. It is easy to use and does the job [if expectations are realistic]. No device is going to keep the interior of your car (and the things inside it) cool if you leave it baking in the sun. This product is great in protecting your car seat [fabric] from sun damage and can help in keeping the plastic and metal at a safe temperature.

I bought 2 of these. They work great. The car seats still get hot, but not burn my kid hot. I can put the kids straight into their seats without having to cool the car first.

To address some of the complaints in other reviews:

- yes the car seat still gets hot, but what do you expect, the inside of a car gets upwards of 200° in 90°+ heat. But it keeps from making the metal skin burning hot.

-the complaints about the material being cheap. What do people expect, it's $7. It does have 2 layers; the reflective and a thin fabric, but you still have to be careful.

-the inconvenience and difficulty of putting it on while juggling kids: again, did you not think about how it would get put on before you bought it. It doesn't come with elves to do the work for you. And it's for car seats which means you have small children. You have to adjust accordingly; after I get the kids into the house I go back out and put the covers on. If we are running errands, I have the kids sit in the front seat while I put them on.

Overall I'm happy to have these cover for the summer. I live in an area where I only need them for the summer months so I don't need them to last long. I'll buy new ones next summer.

I bought two of these, one for my mom's car and one for mine. Hers is fine, but when i opened mine a couple of months after i bought it, the white fabric which is the inside layer totally disintegrated!!!! it turned into a sort of white powder thing, awful. I have not been able to use it as the car seat would be covered with this thing, which will not only be messy but might be toxic. I don't know if i should risk it and order another one as i have not found a similar product in another brand...
