Okay seat but has some issues
I bought the seat because of the strong CREP safety ratings. It looks good and is easy to install.
However, I've found that my baby does not find it comfortable and is more unsettled in it. Her head seems to flop around more than it should when she sleeps. The headrest seems quite wobbly and I found the fabric has worn quite quickly.
I've since replaced it and am happier with my replacement. I'll keep this seat but only as a spare.

Great seat. My baby fell asleep in it straight away
We got this seat after having used a capsule for her the 7 months. There is an infant insert inside which we have removed & it has made it way more comfortable for her. She would have been too squished if we hadn’t removed it. The straps are easy to use - they undo and extend so easily. I have used the height adjustment with ease too. We had the Maxi cosy basic capsule so this feels like a bit of an upgrade as the straps are easier to undo & tighten. We got it on special at Baby Bunting which was a bargain
Purchased in March 2019 at Baby Bunting for $189.00.
After trying to alter the height of the head rest/straps the head rest collapses down if you put any pressure (barely any) on the right side. Not safe so I returned it to the shop and swapped for a completely different brand. Overheard the staff saying it was the second Summit with the same issue that had been returned

Easy to use car seat
I have found it to be a great car seat for my new born. He loves to sleep in it for long trips and is very warm and comfortable. It is easy to do up once you get the hang of it.

We studied for a long time before we bought this pram seat. This pram seat is very easy to install and unload. I'm not disappointed that it's not difficult to operate. Disassembly and cleaning is easy. It is of good quality and the material is quite good. I'll keep watching.
Not buying it again for second child.
* Baby/toddler comfortable.
* The seatbelt doesn't adjust all that well as they grow.
* The material of the seat is quite poor quality - became frayed within a year and the colour of the seat has faded terribly, making a 2.5 year old car seat look much more worn. We bought a seat for each car even though we only used one car once week, it still didn't maintain well.
Going with a completely different brand and model with our second - admittedly, having had a child now, know what to look for and the Safety first car seat is not the best value or product at this price point.
Great car seat
I got this for my son who's know nearly 3 months an so far no problems what so ever, it was easy to install, easy to take in an out of the car, comfortable an easy to clean! straps are a bit difficult to adjust as it's under all the padding and need both hands but other than that it's great!
Safe and cosy.
This seat is super easy to install and easy to adjusted as baby grows. It's superfortabale and snuggley when babies is in there. It is a heavier seat so you definitely want this as a main seat. Easy to clean & take apart just can sure you remember how the straps go back in.
Loved it at first but now...
At first we loved this seat. Easy to install, baby was happy, material kept him cool in summer and looked good.
Although...once baby turned 4 months he got terrible head flop in this seat. He is now 6 months and we are in the position to either discontinue using this car seat, or change it to forward facing. Not ideal as we got this seat so he could rear face for at least a year. I think the head flop is due to bad engineering of the compact design, the seat is slightly upright even in rear facing. It depends on the baby but sometimes the h...ead flop is so bad the passenger has to hold his head up - that, or we have to wake him up...and you know what they say about waking a sleeping baby! I guess the silver lining of this is that it's a comfortable seat as he almost falls asleep every time (meaning head flop almost every car ride). He also falls to sleep very quickly in our other car seat (Maxi Cosi) - although with that one he doesn't get head flop. All babies differ but I would not recommend due to the risk of head flop.
Good safe carseat however a little bulky
It is easy to clean and really easy to install; however it takes up a lot of space in my back seat. For a mom of 3 that is not good. My son falls asleep every time he gets in this seat so it must be really comfortable. I also really love the colors.
Great all round car seat
Easy to install ISOFIX car seat, the easiest I've ever installed. Easy to tighten straps. Love the fabric, my little one is a hot little thing and he doesn't get sweaty when sitting in the car for long periods; it is also very easy to clean. Good value for money.
