Last week, we took our 4-year-old on her first plane ride.
Now we're minimalist carry-on-ers, so the idea of hauling a massive car seat in addition to our luggage seemed rather daunting.
But you know us...
After considerable research, we found the Ride Safer Child Restraint System as an alternative to our standard car seat and decided to give it a go.

We ordered the system in advance to ensure that the restraint felt comfortable and secure.
The Ride Safer travel vest and attachment fit easily into the bag that came with the system. We stored everything inside a backpack to carry onto the plane. No problem at all! The system is incredibly portable and easy to use.
To use, we simply strapped and tightened the vest and placed her in the center position (the safest spot) in the back seat of the car.
Then, we carefully inserted the standard seatbelt through the designated slots on the vest and secured it with the velcro covers.
Our family is no easy sell, but we are incredibly impressed with the security provided by the Ride Safer system.
If you're searching for an alternative to traveling with a standard car seat and have any questions about our experience with this travel vest, we'd be happy to help in any way.
Sending you best wishes for happy travels, friends!
