I need to start by telling you that my son is a year old and 24 lbs.  SO, I cannot speak to the infant insert part of the seat.  I am rear facing my son as long as possible.  We installed the seat rear facing using the latch system.   It was fairly easy to do.  My only complaint would be that my car seats are very slanted so I had to roll a towel up and put it under the seat to make it level.  I will say that is one thing I loved about my infant seat.  It had a part that dropped down to make the seat level and I didn't have to use a towel.

The shell isn't overly large.  I actually went to Babies R' Us to try the fit before I decided on which seat I wanted.  I drive an older fairly small sedan and it fits in there perfectly!  Very impressed with the size. It is nicely padded and the fabric is sturdy but comfortable.

My son was super excited when I moved him into this seat.  He was in an infant seat prior.  He has plenty of room.  

I absolutely love this seat.  I will say I have a little difficulty with the tension knobs.  I have pregnancy induced carpal tunnel and the days when my hands are really bothering me I have a hard time tightening the seat.  The knobs are also a little snug because my car is so small.  I have found that if I don't loosen the seat too much when taking my son out I have no issues. 

I also love that you can remove the cover without having to rethread theharness and straps!

One thing I would suggest to Evenflo is to have the leveling arrow easier to find, either with a sticker or have the arrow be a different color.  Once the seat was in the car it was difficult to locate the arrow because it was the same color as the base of the seat.

The straps have a slide feature for a great fit!  Great feature!

  • Comfortable

  • Safe
  • Sturdy
  • Stylish
  • Price
  • Tension knob is difficult for me to adjust 

OVERALL -- Great value!  Safe and Sturdy seat on a budget!
