Does the job :)
First time mum, so I don’t have anything to compare with, but I’ve had no trouble with this capsule. Easy to fit and with tether strap on I’ve found the seat sits firmly in place. Removing the tether strap to get bub in and out, isn’t to difficult. The infant insert seat cushion held bub in a position that I was quite comfortable with while he was a newborn and is removable as he’s gotten older. I love that the seat suits the maxi cosi adapters, which has meant that I can use it with my Silvercross prams. No complaints.
Isofix car seat for my first bubba!
We purchased the Joie isofix version for our first baby born in October 2017 as we wanted the safest option for our bubba to travel in! We love that it was a capsule seat so we could connect it to our pram to make unloading the car easier and also not waking the baby! Overall it’s not too heavy and relatively easy to click into the base and remove from the car. However our bubba has disliked it at times- not sure if it’s the shape of the seat or just cause it rear faces? But she has started to enjoy it now that she’s bigger. It can be tricky ge...tting her in and out of the seat as you kinda of have to lift her into the seat around the harnessed extra seat belt (though this is the Australian car seat regulations). Our bubba hasn’t liked sitting in it as a pram seat since she’s gotten bigger and prefers her pram seat as it lets her have more movement. Plus side is that it’s very protective but when she chucks a wobbly- the extra padding seems to overheat her and she end up very sweaty! But overall it does what it needs!

Good to use with Joie stroller
Pros - Very easy to get in and out of the car and onto stroller (single click), lightweight (I have easily carried baby in capsule on Joie Mirus stroller up stairs), baby appeared comfortable once past the 4kg mark, canopy useful in the car and if using with Joie Mirus stroller, can keep baby in complete shade with both canopies up without fussing around with cloths and pegs, rockable.
Cons - Not as padded as I'd like - which means I had to place small pillows on either side when he was below 4kg even with the insert and minimal head support, fairly pricey RRP$399 if bought (I rented so it was quite economical as only used for 6 months).
Would recommend only once baby is slightly bigger.
