Combi Shuttle Review and Giveaway

The Combi Shuttle has replaced the Shuttle 33.  It is compatible with Combi Strollers as part of their Create a Travel System line.  It is available in four fashions, Hamilton, Graphite, Flagstone, and Cranberry.  The Shuttle can be used from birth, there is no lower weight limit given.

The features of the Shuttle include:

Tru-Safe® Anti-Rebound Bar

Tru-Safe® Side Impact Protection

EZ Harness™ Height Adjustment System

There are many infant seats on the market today that have weight limits of 30 lbs. or more.  Most of these seats will be outgrown by height long before the weight limit is reached.  The Shuttle accommodates infants and toddlers until they reach 33 inches with at least an inch of headrest over their head or 35 lbs.  My 2 1/2 year old is over the standing height limit but has just an inch of headrest over his head and he is under the weight limit.  This seat will last a long time, even for a tall baby.

The Shuttle also includes some convenience features that make the seat very user friendly.

There is a shoulder belt lockoff on the base for easier installation in vehicles that do not have locking seat belts.

The base has a recline foot with four recline positions to aid in installation at a proper angle.

The base also has a bubble level to assist with installing the seat at the proper angle for the age and size of the baby or toddler occupant.

The seat belt guides for installation of the seat without the base are covered by part of the cover.  This can help prevent the guides from catching on anything.

There is a compartment in the base to keep the LATCH strap securely stowed when not in use.

There is also another storage compartment within the base.

As you can see in the above picture, the base features easy to read instructions for installation complete with pictures.  These are no substitute for reading the instruction manual but they are helpful reminders.  The manual is easy to read with helpful and informative illustrations.

The Shuttle has a puzzle buckle, both tongues have to be put together before they can be inserted in to the buckle.  Some models have a removable infant insert.  The canopy provides good coverage and the handle curved to make it more ergonomic.

The Combi Shuttle is a perfect infant seat for parents that want to have the convenience of an infant car seat without having to worry about the seat being outgrown quickly.  It has many features that make it extremely user friendly.

Special thanks to Combi for providing the Shuttle for review and giveaway.

    Safety is most important, but straps that are easily adjustable are great to have

    I have Several expecting friends that would love this!

    I didn’t know anything about car seats when I bought my daughter’s infant seat. My seat did not have a front harness adjuster and the base had to have 4 pool noodles taped together under it for it to have a correct angle. This seat looks so much more user friendly than the nightmare of a seat I had the first time around!
