Overall

Performance
The materials around the harness are good, but the Iseos feels as if it could do with a little more padding. Instead of a close-fitting head support, the Iseos has an interesting feature where you can narrow or widen the shape of the seat itself by winding the side sections in or out with a knob at the front. This two-section dial also reclines the seat, so there are no fixed number of positions but just a broad range from upright to laidback.

Ease of operation
The Iseos is relatively light for an Isofix seat and it's pretty easy to slot it into position. You can still use the seatbelt to fit it, but this involves unwinding the seat to its reclined position, which can take a little while. The hooks for the harness make it easy to seat your child, but adjusting straps as your child grows taller is a real pain.

Buying
The Iseos is one the cheapest Isofix seats on test and can be found for less online.

Quality
The controls and fabrics feel like they are good quality, although the in and out movement of the side wings can be a little stiff.

Special features
The adjustable side sections offer excellent scope to adapt the seat around your child as they grow, by narrowing and widening at the twist of a knob.
