Maxi cosi prezi disappointment

I had high hopes for the prezi and spent about a half hour playing around with it yesterday. It looks like a really cool seat but the cons outweighed the pros. It is MUCH heavier than the micro. and that stay out of the way harness is a great concept with horrible execution. Online it looks like its just stiff foam but in reality the foam padding is over a ridged plastic that has a raised ridge along the outer edge of the harness that can easily be felt through the pad. I just cant imagine that being comfortable lying across the clavical/shoulder area and because the padding if fixed there is to way to slide it down if need be. I had my youngest in it who to be fair is right at the height and weight limit and the harness padding didnt come down far enough to keep the belt from cutting into her neck and there was no way to move the padding. I should have took pics. Also we all know that most sun shades on infant seats are usually inadequate but the prezi may as well have no shade at all. Lastly, I read a complaint that the material makes her baby really sweaty.....i can see what she means! I was so excited to get this for my squish due in July but it's back to the drawing board. Anyone have this seat and have more experience with it?

Thanks for the heads up! I will cross this one off my list if we decided to go the infant seat route.

Re: Maxi cosi prezi disappointment

Bummer I was looking at this set too for me new little one due in Aug. I have no clue which one to go with. I have to order online so that makes it harder to figure out. I hate living in the middle of nowhere.

I don't live in the middle of no where and I still have to order online. I am close to NYC and Philly but sometimes getting to see seats is just a leap of faith.

That would great. I watched babygizmo's review and she didn't mention any negatives except the canopy. I was reviewing car seat specs and it's suppose to be only 1 lb heavier than the micro.....there's no way! We had a micro to compare and it was waaaaay heavier. My 4yr old picked up the micro and swung it....she struggled getting the prezi off the ground.

I'm really blessed to have a BuyBuy baby like 15 min. from me. They have dozens upon dozens of the top name and designer car seats,strollers,and diaper bags. It's seriously unreal how much they carry. I think there's about 3 isles of just infant seats with choices on both sides! You name it they have it. IF ANYONE IS LOOKING FOR AN HONEST REVIEW OF SOMETHING IN PARTICULAR, LMK AND I CAN GO THERE AND DO A SHORT VIDEO FOR YOU.
