Reviewed

The Joie Traver Shield is billed as 'a locked and loaded travel buddy'. It's a Group 1/2/3 car seat with an adjustable impact shield instead of a harness for Group 1 mode. It looks like a well-padded and comfortable seat, but how does it cope with a front crash at 40mph and a side crash? Read our full review to find out whether you should consider one for your child.
