I was looking for a booster seat to use on vacation. Up until now, my son has been quite comfy in his toddler/booster combo with the full back so I've had no reason to move to a booster since his current seat can go with up all the way until he can go without a booster at all. But when it came time to travel, I knew I needed something easier to lug around. I settled on this car seat because it looked cushy for my son's comfort and I liked that it had a carry handle since I'd be lugging it through airports. I didn't find out until after purchasing that there's the exact same booster but with clips that keep it in place and attach to the latches in your car. Overall this booster is fine and was great for traveling - lightweight and portable, but if I had to buy again, would definitely want the clip version as this seat can move around a little too much for my comfort.
