About this deal

In addition, it folds so small that it fits in airplane overhead lockers, which provides great peace of mind when travelling.

Built using super tough plastic polymers like Delrin 100 ST from Dupont, aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum and supportive DenseFoam with non-slip FrictionFabric. We were looking for something comfortable but we also needed something that we could easily fold down and travel with.The seat itself is hard and stiff and elicited complaints for trips longer than a quick jaunt from a park to home. As a Group 2/3 car seat, it claims to provide the safety of a traditional booster cushion while its compact design is easily foldable. mifold encourages caregivers to use the most protective car seat available that is suitable to the child, the circumstances and the vehicle being used.

It follows the original MiFold, a travel booster which which was described as ‘the world’s most compact car seat’. After years of lugging a backbreakingly heavy car seat through airports and transferring it from car to car when visiting with friends, the idea of a tiny, foldable, compact and portable booster seat seemed too good to be true.

While the ease of transport is convenient, the crash test results were some of the lowest in the group, and the product itself is hard to use and hard for little ones to buckle around. When not in use, it folds down to an impressively small and light package, the size of a small rucksack, which makes this product a very tempting option for those looking to travel a lot. I find the adjusting of the seat a bit counter-intuitive, so it did take me quite a few attempts to adjust it properly between children. Both products are definitely a great solution for globetrotters and for those who need a practical, easy and safe solution.

One of my kids biggest complaints when sitting in a car without any kind of booster is that the belt cuts into their shoulder. We found kids struggled with getting their lap belt into the guides and, when they were successful, the lap belt wasn’t actually where it was supposed to be on their hips—rendering the Mifold unsafe in those instances. And often the alternative is either nothing, a hired seat which is a huge unknown (I’ve heard horror stories about broken straps and on our last trip, Max’s infant seat wasn’t actually attached to the car! So far we are quite satisfied with the Hifold car seat because we can adjust the seat belt using the lap and shoulder guides so our child is more secure. Instead of lifting the child to an adult position like other booster on the market, mifold does the exact opposite.Hifold, the Fit-and-Fold booster seat isn’t a booster as such because it doesn’t ‘boost’ or raise the child up much higher in the seat. For anyone backpacking with their kids, or needing a compact car seat for car hire, the mifold Comfort gets a big thumbs up from us. With mifold, a child can always be safe no matter whose car they are in - and that is the mifold vision. Through this blog, run by full-time travel bloggers Jenny (Mum) and Jay (Dad), we share our itineraries and honest experiences of family travel life with you. But the mifold Comfort is now our go-to choice for backpacking, principally because they fit into the kids’ travel backpacks so that they carry them themselves.

The Hifold is suitable for children from 4 to 12 years, or weighing between 15 to 45kg, or up to 150cm.

It has been a total gamechanger for our Mazda Bongo camper travels in France and Spain, and is the best option as there are no head rests where the boys’ car seats go. In addition, it has 6 impact-protection zones made with a 4-layer design, which includes a high density, viscous memory foam inside the headrest and side rests. We therefore always encourage caregivers to use the most protective car seat available that is suitable to the child, the circumstances and the vehicle being used. The mifold adjusts to fit the lap belt and shoulder strap correctly on your child and offers the right amount of restraint in case of impact. On a previous Morocco road trip we had brought our car seats from home as we hired a car at Marrakech airport and had the car for the entire trip.
