The canopy offers a decent amount of coverage. It doesn’t extend all the way but it gives enough shade for your little one.
It sometimes can get stuck and serious effort is needed to move it up or down when that happens.
|Is The Material Breathable?||Yes|
|Seat Weight:||7 pounds|
|Machine Washable Cover?||Yes|
|Comes With An Infant Body Support?||No|
|Easy To Remove Cover?||Yes|
|Shoulder Harness Has Pads?||Yes|
The Snugride Click Connect 30 LX only weighs 7 pounds. It’s a breeze for parents to carry the car seat around or when transferring the carrier into a stroller.
It is worth noting that the straps are easy to adjust. You can adjust the seat harness from the front.
The seat only comes with a newborn head support (instead of an infant insert) so some parents decided to get a better quality one as they say that their infant’s head flopped around.
Parents will not have a difficult time maintaining the cover as it’s easy to remove and can be machine washed.
