The Eddie Bauer Portable Car Seat B Collection is a convenient, economical and easy way for parents to travel with toddlers. No more renting grossed out and out-dated car seats while on vacation and no more lugging around and checking in full sized car seats.
The Eddie Bauer car seat folds compactly to fit in a small suitcase or tote. It weighs less than four pounds, but still retains the basic safety features of larger seats.
Being a forward-facing seat, it is most suitable for children weighing between 22 to 40 pounds, simply buckle the five-point harness and make sure they are snug with the sternum stays. The back and bottom of the car seat are well padded, and the padded shoulder straps will keep the neck from chafing.
Bear in mind that this portable car seat is merely an alternative when a full-sized car seat is not an option – it lacks side cushioning, so it isn’t recommended for longer car trips when your child might want to drift to sleep.
It really is only ideal for short trips on vacations, rental cars and taxis, and only if there is an adult next to the child to keep him still. The accompanying adult can ensure the child doesn’t fall over (if he nods off), that the belt stays tight, and that will indeed stop the child from becoming a projectile in the event of an accident.

We would NOT recommend using the Eddie Bauer Portable Car Seat on an unattended child in the backseat – it is simply not safe.
But for the portability, ease of use, and value, the Eddie Bauer Portable Car Seat can’t be beat (provided there is an adult sitting alongside the seat).
