i-Gemm infant car seat


Based on 12 reviews


The Joie i-Gemm (NOT the same seat as the Joie Gemm) is one of the top rated infant seats by independent crash testers, rating “very good” on multiple test categories. It also did not have a single “inadequate” rating, which is exceedingly rare #CarseatFullstop rating – 4.5/5 The i-Gemm is a rearward facing infant car seat. The seat should be used until your baby is either 13kg or 85cm and uses a 5-point harness. It can be very safely installed with the seatbelt alone, but you can buy the ISOfix base separately. The seat has good padding, including extra padding for use with newborns. It is well designed for a growing baby, spacious and the headrest and harness can be adjusted as baby grows, without rethreading. Crash testing explained by #CarseatFullstop here (link). Safety Ratings: Passed basic safety standard: i-Size (R129) External testing: ADAC +1.5 with seatbelt (Very Good); +1.7 with base (Good) Which? Best Buy 78% (with seatbelt); Best Buy 77% (with base) We do not recommend using any car seat other than an infant car seat for a baby under 13kgs or 75cm. An infant seat is specifically designed to protect your developing baby.

I got the seat with the travel system and used it quite a lot when my daughter was younger. She was quite comfortable in the seat, only issue I had was that our bakkie's seatbelts are quite short, so it was difficult to get the seat strapped in, but I didn't have this problem with my car.

I am very happy with this car seat. O don't regret buying it for my son at all. Every mommy with a car should definitely get this car seat. I was impressed by its ability to be steady on the seat and stable without that base to support it. Big investment for driving with a peace of mind knowing that your baby is safe and sound at the backseat

This carrier came with the Joie Litetrax 4 travel system. Overall I have been very happy with the car seat, it is sturdy, easy to carry and thanks to the grey colour, the messes are mostly hidden! One thing that made a big difference was buying the isofix base which allows you to simply click the carrier into your car without having to secure with seat belts etc.
