I was in love with this booster until last week. It is easy to buckle in, has wonderful cupholders, looks and feels wonderful, and folds up easily. Then the IIHS came out with its latest booster seat ratings. Basically, they gave the seat an indeterminate rating: "These seats can provide good protection for some kids in some vehicles, but not in as many cases as top-rated boosters. If you are using one of these seats, make sure that the lap and shoulder belts fit properly. The lap belt should fit flat across a child's upper thighs, not the soft abdomen. The shoulder belt should cross snugly over the middle of the shoulder." I am much more conscious of how I buckle my child in now. Unfortunately for my wallet, I am also considering getting a different booster.

I can honestly say that between the Consumer Reports and reviews on Amazon, that's how I based my purchase of this seat. My DDs (2.5yrs apart, but both petite and only 5lb diff between them) were both ready to move from their Graco Nautilus into a booster after we decided to add to our family. I have a Buick Enclave with the 60/40 second row and was having trouble finding boosters to fit the contoured seats properly. As described in the listed features on Amazon, the base of this booster is designed for such a seat!! The padding is very plush and both girls have yet to say anything negative about their seats. We have honestly never used the cup holders, as the Enclave has them in the doors.

Safety, well, I guess technically you could say we were in an accident, but as you will read below, you will understand why I did not purchase new seats. My DDs had no issues related to the accident.

Cleaning is a breeze! I washed on gentle in my front loader several times (long story short, turkey [no, not kidding] flew in threw my windshield while driving on the interstate [I pulled over safely with only injury to turkey] causing glass to go EVERYWHERE and I wanted to ensure glass was gone before allowing my DDs back in to their seats!) before laying out to dry. Covers fit back on with no problems!

As far as our new addition, the baby is in center seat riding in a Chicco Keyfit (22lb) and there are minimal issues with buckling in with the boosters. ONLY DOWNSIDE is on the Buick, not 1st Years, the female component of the seatbelt is on a stationary bar, so there is little give when buckling in, making it only slightly difficult. One of my DDs has a tight fit to buckle in when sitting in the booster located on the 60 bench.

My daughter used this booster seat from the time she was old enough to not need a 5 point harness, until she was old enough to use a booster without a high back. It was comfortable enough for her to nap in the car because the sides of her head had something to rest against. This was great during long trips or waiting for big brother in the carpool line! The height is adjustable, so it grew with her. We always got compliments on the cute fabric. The arm rests can fold up if not needed, and the cup holder can fold under the seat. I loved that it had a cup holder on both sides. Sometimes she had a drink in one side and a snack on the other side. Or other times, her brother used the cup holder closest to him, because he was big enough to use just a seat belt and didn't have a cup holder. We used this seat every single day and it held up well. The fabric eventually faded somewhat over time, but our car stays parked outside, and it was no more than I would have expected from daily exposure to sunlight.

This is the Second Compass seat we've purchased from Amazon - the first is now in the babysitters car.

I absolutely loved the first one we bought back in 2007 - it had a giraffe print and most all the same features as this one. However, one major improvement I noticed with this newer model from our older one is that it has significantly more cushioning. The seat, back, headrest and wings (on each side of the head rest) are significantly more padded. This is great, as our daughter would sometimes complain of being uncomfortable on long drives with the old seat.

In general, the main benefits to the Compass seats are as follows:

-lightweight: easy to carry when needed

-folds in half: again, making it easy to carry when needed. Also great if you put it on an airplane, as it protects it somewhat with only the outer shell being exposed and the softer cushion areas closed up in the "clam" part of the seat.

-have two cup holders: once you have these any seat without them seems a hardship. You'll use them for more than just sippy cups! Think crayons, odd shells and rocks picked up at the beach, snacks, toys, etc.

- SUPER EASY to use: This seat is classified as a booster, so it does not latch or any of that. It is held in by the seatbelt, which is also what holds in your child. The seat has easy to see guide paths for where the seatbelt should go. It's almost dummy proof, which is great.

-Armrests: This, again is something that once you're used to them, any car seat without them seems a hardship. On long drives kids want somewhere comfortable to rest their arms just as adults do. The armrests are at a great height for kids and can also be pushed up and out of the way if needed.
