Safety 1st Complete Air™ Convertible Car Seat 22430AIN Review!

Safety 1st
Car seat safety is one of a mom's most important concerns.  Safety 1st has been helping reassure the minds of moms nationwide for 10 years! Their parent company, Dorel Juvenile Group has been in the business for 25 years! 

About Safety 1st:

For over 25 years, Dorel Juvenile Group has been dedicated to helping provide a safer world for children. Our disciplined approach to product development is showcased by our diverse portfolio of powerful brands and innovative products. Each brand encompasses a vast breadth of products - from car seats to strollers, high chairs to play yards, monitors to childproofing products, and more.  For decades, parents have placed their trust - and their children's safety - in our hands.  A responsibility we take to heart with the launch of each new product. 
Currently based in Foxboro, Massachusetts, we initially entered the juvenile market in 1984 as the Safety1stbrand with our now classic and internationally recognized "Baby on Board" sign.  Fueled by the immediate success of the sign, Safety 1st soon claimed a market niche in child safety and became the first brand to develop a comprehensive line of "childproofing" products. In 1988, building upon our strong child safety foundation, we expanded our offering to cover other juvenile categories and quickly developed a reputation for unique, feature-rich, quality products at affordable prices.
In 2000, Safety 1st was acquired by Dorel Industries Inc. Dorel is a rapidly growing consumer products manufacturer specializing in juvenile products; a wide variety of ready-to-assemble home and office furniture; and home furnishings such as metal folding chairs, tables, bunk beds, futons and step stools. Its solid history includes successfully integrating various acquisitions, including Cosco, Charleswood, Maxi-Miliaan, Ameriwood Industries and Bebe Confort. The acquisition of Safety 1st, though, is Dorel's largest to date.
We attribute our continued success to an unwavering commitment to safety, innovation and value. It's what parents look for from Safety 1st, and what we are proud to continually deliver.
Complete Air™ Convertible Car Seat
Safety 1st offered me a chance to review their Complete Air™ Convertible Car Seat!  This  car seat came in the biggest box I have EVER seen a carseat come in! I was afraid it wouldn't fit in the back seat with my other 2 carseats! A tight squeeze, but it fit! I was super excited as I read the instruction manual and product details! This carseat has been through some of the WORST crash test scenarios and the results? The carseat is super safe!  Here are some product details:
Safety 1st brings revolutionary  Air Protect™ Side Impact Technology to your family with the Complete Air™ Convertible Car Seat.   As a convertible car seat, the Complete Air™ will keep your child protected through two separate stages: from 5-40 pounds as a rear-facing infant car seat and from 22-50 pounds as a forward-facing toddler car seat.

1 in 4 car crashes involving children are side impact collisions. They are by far the deadliest type of collision for children, accounting for 1 in 3 child fatalities; nearly all of which are caused by head trauma. These are frightening facts, but Safety 1
st has been by your side for 25 years providing innovative products to help protect your child from becoming a statistic. It is in this tradition that we proudly announce Air Protect™ side impact technology.

Safety 1
st engineers designed Air Protect™ using next generation testing methods that simulate the most violent types of side impact crashes, those with vehicle intrusion. Using this advanced methodology, Air Protect™ was engineered to defend your child in two vital ways. During a crash, the system immediately shields your child's head from the impact. In a second layer of defense, Air Protect™ allows air to escape from the headrest: channeling crash energy away from your child, creating more ride down time. It is this double layer of protection that makes Air Protect™ technology unique.
At Safety 1st we are proud of our history, but are always looking towards the future and developing innovative products. Products like Air Protect™ that help shield your child from the most violent real world threats.

Safety 1st did not compensate me for this review. They sent me the product mentioned to review and I was under no obligation to do so if I chose, nor was I required to submit a positive review.
