WAYB Pico Ultralight Car Seat

Nov 2, 2018

Category: Gear

Traditional car seats are a little bulkier than we’d like to admit, and for some reason, we haven’t really seen any dramatic redesigns over the last decade. Tio Jung and Michael Crook (of Patagonia CEO fame) decided to change the way the world approaches the underrepresented safety device by introducing an ultralight seat that utilizes aerospace-grade materials.

The Pico is manufactured using lightweight energy-absorbing 6000- and 7000-series aluminum coupled with a breathable, easy-to-clean mesh — ditching the massive quantities of plastic and toxic foam traditionally used by competitors. This helps to save quite a bit of weight, and where other car seats seem to be a pain to move around, the foldable eight-pound Pico is a breeze to carry. It features a front facing, five-point-harness that installs with an airplane, vehicle, or Lower Anchors and Tether system, and meets U.S. safety standards for plane and car use. It’s meant specifically for children ages two through five — and it even has a variety of colorways for the more fashion-conscious parents out there.
