This car seat is expensive. Very expensive. So expensive that we only have one seat and didn't purchase the fancy Orbiting base. There is no way I would have purchased a seat at this price EXCEPT that it was the only car seat currently on the market that does not contain chemical flame retardants and other harmful chemicals that are known to damage our health and to me this was reason enough to buy it. Graco and Britax will be manufacturing car seats containing fewer chemicals in the future, and hopefully they will be at a lower price point. If you are concerned about these kinds of issues, products that are Oeko-Tex certified are the way to go - they have been rigorously tested for harmful substances.
Other positives - we received our seat (red) in May and unlike another reviewer's experience, it was not damaged in any way, fortunately. The belts are a little tricky, but I like that they can be let out enough that you can put them to the side rather than seat your child on them and then dig them out from underneath her to then fasten them. I was worried about the seat being too upright, but she likes it and it hasn't been an issue at all. She seems very comfortable. I recommend it for those looking for a seat without chemicals.

-The rotation to get baby in/out is super awesome but the car seat needs improvement before they can offer this super expensive price tag.

-It has no "no rethread harness"
-Really really heavy seat (which is crazy to me as the company brags about it being the 1st convertible seat that can be placed on a stroller) I am 5'7 and very strong and my baby is 6 mos and 20 pounds. I couldn't imagine a smaller/not so strong mom lifting this with or without a baby in it.

-Doesn't come with a sunshade in which I thought it did but that is the older model (so if u do place the seat on stroller u have the sun beaming in your babies eyes) but is available for purchase for $30. I JUST PAID OVER $1200 FOR THIS WHOLE SYSTEM AND THE LAST THING I WANT TO DO IS GIVE ORBIT ANOTHER DIME.

-The seat is really upright so your baby will slump!!!! IT HAS NO RECLINE. I was told to try the rolled up towel. Again, another inconvenience on your part.

-it's bulky so it caused a blind spot in my SUV.

-Straps twisted my very 1st use!

-Overall there are many choices with added accessories like cup holder, recline, no rethread etc. for less $. I think Orbit needs to reconsider the product before they slap this sticker price on it. I will be returning this but I have yet to narrow down what seat to get. I do want a higher end seat not made in China (which aren't many).

We purchased the Orbit Toddler Convertible Car Seat G2 as the only option for our Honda Element. We had picked out a different rotating seat but when it came time to purchase that one was no longer being made. We had to make the investment in this seat and its rotating base (not included). Some things to note about our experience with this seat (please note, we have only used it rear facing in our 2007 Honda Element):
-It just barely works in the Honda Element. As it turns, it just clears the cover for the seat hinges in the side of the car. It will be interesting to see what happens as my son's legs get longer. The Orbit seat will not turn completely around unless the Element seat back is reclined. It will turn enough to easily put the child in and out of the seat from the car door.
-You will not be able to use a mirror to see your child in the rear facing position. It does not obscure my view in the Element but I could see that in some cars that may be an issue.
-I didn't have any issues with the quality of the seat or any parts. It was easy to install. We do not remove the seat so the weight isn't an issue for us. We have not heard any rattling or other noises when traveling, with baby or empty.
-We do not have any issues with the straps twisting. In fact, there are magnets on the edges of the seat to hold onto the buckles so they are out of the way when we take the baby in and out.
-My son seems to be comfortable in the seat. I feel good about how little his head can move from side to side. At 16 lbs he never slumped in the seat and the angle works fine for him.
-My son has had one blow out diaper in the new seat and the gray material cleaned up nicely. The materials also seem to do well in the heat...

I never write reviews, but I felt compelled to do so in the case of the Orbit baby Toddler Car Seat G2 Ruby. I also must add that we love Orbit, and have every single product they have made. We joined the Orbit revolution when they released G2.

We have two Mocha Orbit Baby Toddler seats, and this review strictly refers to the Ruby colored ones. Due to our familiarity to the products, and their compatibility we decided to buy a third car seat to into our third car. But we had also decided to go with the Ruby color instead of the Mocha. The Ruby seat is 140 dollars more than the Mocha on Amazon. But still in spite of the fact that one could buy another low end carseat for the difference we decided to splurge.

So when the box arrived, we knew what to expect, but we were excited still about the splash of color. Opening the box he first surprise was that this car seat does not come with the sun shade like the original colors do. Since we live in FL it was a huge turn off. But we thought it was just a mistake in packaging. Further inspection revealed that the harness could not be loosened and therefore raised, because the clasps from the base of the seat do not come out. At this point we repackaged the seat, and returned it to Amazon.

They sent a replacement immediately. That's when we learned that the lack of sunshade is the standard, and if one wanted sunshades needed to go online and order it separately. For 380 it is disappointing. But we were already splurging so that wouldn't have been the final straw. It came when we again tried to fit the straps to accommodate our child, and this time the headrest came lose. It is secured with velcro, but these were not attached to the seat, and therefore the headrest was unsecured. So the chair was returned.
