The REVV’s base includes an integrated anti-rebound bar that doubles as a carry handle when switching cars. As people who spend an inordinate amount of time carrying car seats between cars as we write reviews and help caregivers, this feature sounds pretty promising!
The REVV also boasts what the manufacturer describes as “High-performance materials including all steel frame, super resilient top of the line plastics, and featherweight micro knit fabrics.”
That’s all we know about this seat for now, we’ll update this space as we learn more.
