RideSafer® Travel Vest - the wearable booster seat alternative that’s easy, safe, convenient and legal. The RideSafer® brings the seat belt down to fit the child, holding it properly in place on the child.

Positions the seat belt properly on child Extremely lightweightAllows 3 properly restrained kids in one rowEasily used in all vehicle typesMakes traveling with kids age 3 and up easierEasily transfers from car to car = one vest per child instead of one seat per car
The RideSafer® Travel Vest is a remarkable alternative to bulky plastic booster seats that keeps your 3+ year old (30+ pound) child safe when riding in a car.
Because it is so convenient, many parents use it for their kids on an everyday basis. But some parents use it only when traveling, or when the child has to ride in a Taxi or another car that doesn’t have a booster seat. It’s your choice!
Talk about convenience – the RideSafer® Travel Vest lets you position 3 kids, properly restrained, in a row — eliminating the need to have a larger or an extra vehicle when 3 kids are involved.
When you have multiple cars or other caregivers driving your children, you need a car seat in each vehicle or you are moving the car seat from car to car and reinstalling it. With the RideSafer, the vest goes with the child and can easily hang from a hook at school. When your child carpools, you always know your child is riding safe.
The booster seat is used to help raise the child to fit the adult seat. But thanks to the RideSafer® Travel Vest, you can now bring the seat belt down to the fit the child, keeping the seat belt properly positioned on the child’s body.
One of the main benefits of the RideSafer® Travel Vest is that it allows the child sit on the more comfortable vehicle seat, providing a lower center of mass, which has been shown to be safer for the child in the event of a crash.
An additional safety component of the RideSafer® vest is that its front contain energy absorbing foam spreads and dissipates the crash force energy across their whole chest as opposed to the 2” area where the seat belt crosses their body.
You’ll ride with peace-of-mind when your kids are using the RideSafer® Travel Vest. It has been crash tested and meets or exceeds all crash test requirements for a child restraint system. You can even view the crash test videos on our website.

When we travel to Mexico, we take the RideSafer Travel Vest. We use it to get our girls safely from the airport to the hotel and back. We don't want to lug heavy car seats since we don't go off the property yet, of course, want the girls to be the safest possible on the shuttle ride. It works well for traveling in New York City as well when we need to jump in and out of taxis. It's a terrific and safe alternative!

So, I LOVE THIS CAR SEAT!!! Seriously. Its taken about a week for my son to be really and truly solo on it. AND he loves it too! Its so cool too because it can stay in the car with the latch on the back. A wonderful surprise was that cool book it came with! Super duper awesome!

I use it when we travel mostly, and then it is a lifesaver during the school year as I carpool with 2 neighbors. It is such a great invention. I bought a vest for my younger daughter and a Bubble Bum for the older for a road trip. I'm planning on getting my older daughter a vest also. The Bubble Bum isn't comfortable for long rides. As far as cabs go, they are so easy. I just use the shoulder strap. I've never been comfortable "Brittanying" the kids in a cab and the vest is so easy to carry around if you have a large purse or backpack. It really is a godsend when in an urban setting. Even my parents can use it! lol!

Just went on vacation with my 2 kids ages 4 & 6. We've tried renting and we've certainly tried carrying 2 seats in the past. I laughed quite a bit this vacation knowing I had 2 carseats in my carry-on! What a difference. Really took out the worry about what to do about seats for the kiddos and saved my back to boot! What a convenience!

It took more than two years to determine what she was going to transition to when the time came. So far this solution has made me feel very good about not just her safety but her comfort. She doesn't have to sit in a plastic framed chair which was one of the main reasons I couldn't find a big kid car seat that truly satisfied me. I am happy I found your product. I am trying to spread the word. For those with 6-year-olds who think they are too big for boosters and car seats, I can't possibly imagine agreeing with a child's opinion when their safety is of utmost priority. With the vest she feels like she isn't so young up against her 13-year-old brother and his friends that might be piling in the car.
