RideSafer Travel Vest
Looking for a safe, legal, convenient travel car seat, secondary seat for carpools or for everyday use? The RideSafer is the safe, certified child restraint for children starting at 3 years old and 30 pounds.
- Crash Tested, Safety Certified – meets or exceeds Federal standards (FMVSS 213)
- Lightweight and easy portability, which is great when traveling with kids (can fit in your child's backpack).
- A unique, 3-clip design positions the car’s seat belt comfortably and correctly with optional tether for consistent sitting position and increased security (recommended for kids 3 to 5 years).
- Increased safety and comfort by allowing the child sit further back and lower on the more comfortable vehicle seat.
- A convenient option to switching car seats for carpools or multiple cars.
- Easy to use when traveling with children and safe in taxis
- If your child seems between sizes, look more at height.
- Choose your vest:
- With tether option comes in carry bag with vest, crotch strap, tether and neck pillow. Tether strap is for use with lap-only belt or for extra upper body support and positioning with a lap-shoulder belt.
- No tether option comes in carry bag with vest and crotch strap. (Option is being discontinued by the manufacturer as they sell out.)
RideSafer is the revolutionary, wearable child restraint that is easy-to-use, easy-to-carry and legal!
Better than a Booster
RideSafer is the safe alternative to a traditional booster car seat! The RideSafer vest can be tethered to your car for optimum upper body restraint and our unique, 3-clip design positions and secures the seat belt exactly where it needs to be for each specific child—across the lap, not the waist, protecting vital internal organs, and across the shoulders, not the neck, eliminating uncomfortable rubbing and dangerous ‘sneaky slipping’ of the shoulder harness behind the child.
The RideSafer padded vest also disperses crash energy across a larger area of the child’s chest than the standard 2” seatbelt and keeps the child’s center of mass lower and further back in the seat than a traditional toddler car seat, which has proven safer in the event of an accident.
And, while car seats are installed incorrectly 3 out of every 4 times, RideSafer’s easy, intuitive installation eliminates the risk of incorrect usage when moving from car to car, making RideSafer the safer choice.
3 in a Row!
Best of all, RideSafer allows parents to easily fit three children ages 3 and up in the back seat, side by side, with no crowding—and no complaining! No need to buy an expensive new car just to accommodate your car seats; RideSafer’s slim profile keeps kids safe and comfortable.
Portable and Packable!
No more juggling heavy, cumbersome car seats and boosters—or worse, going without a car seat when traveling! RideSafer is your safe, portable travel car seat solution. Small enough to fit in a backpack or suitcase, RideSafer is a great on-the-go solution for kids in boosters and forward-facing 5-point harness seats.
Since the RideSafer is easy to install in all cars, it takes away the worry of not being able to correctly install an unknown car seat in an unknown car; a challenge when renting a car seat on your family vacation. Not to mention, you know where it’s been. Parents often report about the dirty car seat rental car companies offer.
A RideSafer makes it easier to justify bringing along a child restraint for the few taxi rides a family needs to take to their destination. Even at a resort destination like Disney World or a cruise, you need a proper child restraint for the ride between the resort and the airport to keep your child safe.
Safety Tested, Certified and Legal!
The RideSafer travel vest is designed for children ages 3 and up and meets or exceeds all crash test requirements and Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for harness restraints (FMVSS213). In fact, the RideSafer consistently tests well below—sometimes by half or more!— the standard safety allowances.
FMVSS 213 is the federal standard which sets the performance criteria for child restraints. It requires that manufacturers measure crash energy at several different locations on an instrumented crash test dummy.
The RideSafer is tested as a harness as prescribed by FMVSS 213.
