Strengths: Versatile - straight out of the car onto the chassis without disturbing baby. Also very easy to fix in the car with the base (available to purchase seperately). Well padded and easy to raise the straps as baby grows.
Weaknesses: It is heavy to carry but that re-assures me as I feel it would be safer in an accident. Anyway, why would you need to carry it far when you can put it on the chassis?
Overall: I would certainly recommended this car seat. It is quite expensive especially if you buy the seperate base for the car but I think it is worth the money. (I have the carrycot and pushchair in Balmain as well and love it all!) Some people have commented that the car seat is too upright and although I agreed when I first put my newborn in it she has always seemed very comfortable and happy to fall asleep in it (even if not in a moving car).
