Rated 3 out of 5Â by JBBSquared Not as great as I expected for the $$
We bought this for air travel and while it did fit in the seat, it was like hauling a hay bale through the airport. It is very heavy, almost 50lbs I believe. We now use it day-to-day and it's just ok. The fabric is not as plush as the other car seats that we own (Britax, maxi cosi) and it is not very well padded. We bought the seat protector but after the first couple uses it bunched up and has to be straightened before each use. It is crumpled up and wrinkled and will not flatten out adding to the discomfort. The design could use some tweaking. I would go back to Britax for the $.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by blurose Great New Product from Diono!
Bought this seat today as we had one that was not a very good one and paid enough for it. The Olympus has top rating with IIHS (Canada) and its very comfy and easy to install. The only flaws are that the belt guards that are to be worn forward facing need to be worn rear facing as it cut into my 19 month old daughters neck. (Bought and installed by professionals) and also when she napped she had severe floppy head (rear facing). You would think that there would be some kind of support for that. In her previous one it had padding and headrest and she looked very uncomfortable like this. If there could be a fix for this it would be amazing. Please!

This seat is worth the money and will last your child awhile! My 6 yr old while on the smaller size at 40" tall is still able to use the 5pt harness! Her and my 3 yr old can buckle themselves in and out and they love how comfy the seat is. This is a heavy seat but it is very easy to install and it will fit 3 across in very tight spots. The back bench seat in my van is 47" and I was easily able to fit three across even using seat belts. I love this seat so much that I am buying another one for our 4th child.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mom of 3 Great car seat
The car seat is easy to install, narrow enough to sit next to it, and the fabric is so soft. I like the padding on the straps, which prevents the straps from cutting into my son's neck. I also really like that the crotch strap can be moved to another position without uninstalling the car seat (in rear-facing installation). It is really large, so even in my mid-size SUV, my 6'4" husband cannot put the driver's seat far enough back to drive the car when the seat is behind the driver.
