The CarGo Seat Review
The CarGo seat is a group 3 travel booster with a twist. Designed to make life easier for when you are on holiday or they are having a stayover. With wheels and a handle and will fit in most overhead lockers, it makes it easy to transport and keep entertainment with them Holding their toys or a change of clothes, this car seat will save space as well as being convenient when traveling.
It has a hard plastic shell with a padded seat for comfort and folding armrests that can be put in place with a press of the button. To help with correct belt-positioning it has a strap that can be adjusted and hooked over the seatbelt. The strap can also be positioned on either side of the seat and stowed away under the arm rests when being wheeled around.
The lock is easy to open and designed well for kids to be able to open and lock easily.
The travel handle neatly folds away flat while being used as a car seat.
The seat sits comfortably in the seat and the fold-flat handle allows for full contact on the seat. The correct positioning of the seatbelt is made easy with the belt strap.

CarGo Seat Price:

I have always worried about backless boosters because of the seatbelt position, the CarGo Seat puts my mind at ease with the positioning strap. With the seat easy to wheel, and store his things, J really has taken to the seat. ( Even just sitting on it in the house! ) Perfect for holidays to use in taxis and in transit to keep them safe and save on car seat hire.
Then when you no longer have a need for the seat, you can send it back to them for recycling.
