Hi! I have a 4 year old and we will be traveling by plane soon. Does anyone have experience with this type of car seat?

Based upon our understanding of the federal motor vehicle standard 213, a child restraint system that qualifies as a harness must have a top tether to conform. Whizrider has promised a forthcoming top tether, but we have yet to see it ship. Also, it is not certified for use on aircraft.

Without the top tether and without any reputable third party crash testing the device, we cannot yet recommend it at CarseatBlog. That isn't to say it is good or bad. It is a very interesting niche product, but as it is fairly unique, we cannot recommend for or against one at this time. Until it has a top tether and we have reviewed it, we would generally recommend the fully certified RideSafer travel vest instead.
