Comfi Caprice – safety meets comfy

Posted by Diana on Monday Jan 20, 2014 Under Baby Travel

ComfiCapriceSafety is always at the forefront of your mind when selecting a car seat for your little one. An independent source of information which I have found useful when researching car seat safety is CREP (Child Restraint Evaluation Program). This organisation tests car seats in a crash lab with crash test dummies – really!

On the CREP website, simply choose from the following age groups: ‘Babies up to approx 6 or 12 months’, ‘Children approximately 6 months to 4 years’ and ‘Older children 4 to 10 years’. Some of the most well know car seats are listed in front of you and you can tick boxes to compare the car seat ratings!

The InfaSecure Comfi-Cruiser is one of the safest car seats for children aged between 6 months and 8 years old. Building on this commitment to safety, InfaSecure have recently released the Comfi Caprice for children aged between 6 months and 4 years old in the in-built harness, and through to 8 years old as a booster seat. Innovations have been made on safety, comfort and ergonomics when creating the Comfi Caprice – the newest addition to the Infasecure family!

The safety features of the Comfi Caprice include the same deep energy absorbing side wings and blow moulded backrest which offer protection for side impact. The unique shape of the seat base and the sloped surface results in a safer response of the seat in frontal impact situations.

When the Comfi Caprice is in booster mode, the arm rests work in tandem with the new base to keep the lap belt down across the lap of your little one. A Safe Grip Belt Clamp ensures the belt does not ride up into the soft abdomen region. In addition, the belt path is under-the-seat rather than through-the-back-rest for enhanced safety in a frontal impact situation. All round there has been great attention to safety in the design of the Comfi Caprice.

Did I mention it is comfy? The new ergonomic shape of the Comfi Caprice, has a high backrest and even has a recline position, making it super comfy for my little one. The redesigned inserts and cover are made from a soft fabric which is available in six stylish colours. Accessories for the Comfi Caprice include a full length seat protector and a removable cup holder.

Safe and Comfy Cruising with InfaSecure

Posted by Diana on Tuesday Nov 27, 2012 Under Baby presents, Baby Travel

Choosing the right child restraint for your child can be a really difficult decision with lots of considerations. Safety is always the top priority and comfort is an important consideration too.

I was looking for an independent source of information on buying child restraints when I found CREP (Child Restraint Evaluation Program). This organisation rates child restraints on crash protection and ease of use. In fact, the car seats rated, are tested in a crash lab with crash test dummies.

I was curious to see the CREP ratings for forward-facing restraints which could convert to a booster seat. I found the InfaSecure Comfi-Cruiser achieved a top rating for protection and ease of use, making it one of the safest car seats for children aged between 6 months and 4 years old.

The safety features of the InfaSecure Comfi-Cruiser include deep, energy absorbing side wings which offer protection for side impact. The tall backrest helps to protect the head and neck. While the multi-height harness is fitted with shoulder and pelvic padding for increased comfort and safety.

The belt path design is low, so when correctly positioned the lap belt is tight over my child’s pelvis. After some research, I found it’s important to keep the belt path low over my child’s pelvis, so the belt doesn’t ride up into the soft abdomen area, where internal injuries are possible. It was clear this car seat has been designed with safety as the top priority.

It was easy to fit my child in the InfaSecure Comfi-Cruiser in forward facing mode. The shoulder heights are clearly marked on the side wings. The harness system was easy to adjust and I was reassured by the 1 CLICK, 2 CLICK independent latching buckle. It’s great to know my child will be able to use the InfaSecure Comfi-Cruiser as a booster seat in the future too.

The full specifications for the Comfi-Cruiser and the instruction manual is available for download from the InfaSecure website. The dimensions of the Comfi-Cruiser are 500mm (width), 780mm (height) and 430mm (depth). The Comfi-Cruiser is available in the following colours: Black, Slate and Black with Pink Piping.
