Anyone who travels or has multiple children in car seats and needs more space this is fantastic. I hated having to take our kids car seats with us on vacation. But there was no way I wanted them in a vehicle without being properly restrained. Yes, I know it is the law in the US, but when traveling in South America that is not always the case. It just never made sense to bring a full size car seat. Now there is an alternative that is safe, and compact in comparison.
The Ride Safer Travel Vest by Safe Traffic System, Inc. is a cool and safe alternative to standard booster seats. The Ride Safer Travel Vest is designed to surround its passenger with energy-absorbing material to protect your child from crash force injuries.

We have used ours in the shuttle too and from the airport. It is now being used for our child when he is in the shuttle bus in the afternoon after school. I no longer have to worry about a 5 year old on the bus without a suitable restraint. This is very easy to use and as he can put it on before the bus arrives all that is left to do is thread the seat belt.
The height of the child is important for this restraint as children on the shorter end of the range may find that it sits too high up. We had to wait until our son was a little taller for him to use it.
