Some of the features

The lightweight design is an added bonus but you will notice the extra fifteen pounds if you are carrying for any long period of time. This is one of the most portable car seats that is currently on the market. The weight and dimensions make it portable and also highly maneuverable in small spaces. The Graco Snug Ride is compatible with the Click Connect strollers which is a huge plus. This allows you to avoid having to remove your baby from the car seat to place in the stroller and vice versa.

Security and safety

The Snug Ride car seat comes with an easy click installation into the base, your car, or stroller. There is a click that you will hear which will allow you to know if your car seat has properly been put into place. This also gives you the possibility to use it with the Connect stroller too.

This wonderful car seat features the EPS foam lining that will give you peace of mind that your little one will be held securely even if you get into a car accident. There is a 5-point harness which will snap your baby into the car seat so that you know they are safe and sound in their seat. Your Graco SnugRide will sit securely in your car’s seat in its position no matter how irregular your car movements could be.

Pros

Washable Seat Pad – The fact that you can wash the seat pad is a huge plus when looking for a car seat. Children are very messy sometimes and you will find that you need to have this feature on any product that your baby sits in. From drooling to so much more the washable seat pad is a real lifesaver when you are dealing with your little mess maker’s messes since it is machine washable which makes it perfect for washing as frequently as you need.

Protective of the Eyes – Any car seat for your baby must have an adjustable light shield which will protect your child’s eyes. The Graco SnugRide Classic has a three panel rotating canopy which will ensure that you can shield your child’s eyes from the sun. Your baby can develop eye problems that could potentially harm their eyes permanently if they are not properly shielded from the sun.

Cons

Rear Adjustable Only –  The Graco Snug Ride is loaded with comfort, safety, and durability. The neutral which is great for either a boy or a girl to ride in. It also uses the LATCH system, so you know your child is safe in the back see. The seat is only adjustable from behind which is the standard for most car seats. This can prove to be very problematic if you have to adjust for more than one kid to use the same seat. This is a pain to adjust and a bunch of my friends suggested different seats to me because of this feature.

Poor Angle to this Seat – One of the problems that I had with this seat is that the angle was too high. For little ones who have no control of their heads, the seat’s angle can cause them to tilt their head forward which can cut off their airway. I had my brother adjust the seat with the lever which brought it to a more acceptable level. This is something that should have been taken into consideration and I wished I was warned before I bought it. The Graco Snug Ride Classic  was a perfect fit after that and has served my child well for the months that they used it.

Conclusion

When compared to the Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite, the Graco Snug Ride is better in every way possible. Graco clearly puts more thought into their design which gives mother’s everywhere peace of mind.
