If you struggle with bulky car seats you may want to take a look at the Century Lightweight infant car seat. While it maintains all of the safety features that you would want it still manages to be lightweight and very easy to manage. This is a very good car seat if you find yourself having to move and attach the seat in another car often.
There are a lot of benefits to this seat system. Despite its very reasonable price (usually less than $100) it has a lot of features that are often found only on top of the line units.
First off is the system to safely secure the seat in your car. You have two options that work very well. One option is to use the safety belt system in your car. By law, seat belts have to be anchored to your car’s frame. This means that you can use this anchoring system to secure your car seat. You can also use the LATCH option to make sure that the seat is safely locked into place.
You will probably be surprised at how lightweight this unit is. Some auto car seats can weigh up to 20 pounds and are very clumsy and awkward to use. The Century Lightweight infant car seat weighs only 7 pounds and is really easy to pick up and move. Sacrificing weight with the unit doesn’t mean sacrificing safety. This is still a very safe seat and has side impact protection that will help keep your child safe and protected. Accidents happen but you can rest assured that this system will help protect your child.
A Good Use Of Recycled Materials
We all are concerned about how much waste we are dumping into our environment. A hidden benefit of this seat system is that a lot of recycled materials are used for the shell and the lining. The manufacturer takes single-use plastic bottles that are thrown away and weaves them into the fabric and materials being used. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Should You Buy This Car Seat?
There are many good reasons to buy this system. The price is very good, it’s hard to find a car seat under $100. We really like the fact that recycled plastic is being used for some of the materials. That shows that some manufacturers are finally responding to consumer requests.
There are a few cons that you should consider. The base is not universal and will work only with this seat. The lining is soft enough but not plush by any definition. Clean up is easy but the seat itself has a lot of gaps that collect debris. Still, this is a very good car seat and a very good value for the price.
