We were a “backpacking family” long before we were a “road tripping family”, and some of our car seat choices reflected the need to travel light. Sometimes when we travel, compromises must be made. But now that we’ve totally flipped our travel style (for the time being, at least), our considerations have become entirely different! With 10,000 miles of driving under our belts in just the last few months we’ve switched up our car seat game and tried to focus on choosing the most comfortable booster seat for long trips for each of our kids.

Booster seats come in several different varieties, and different parents may classify car seats differently. In this article we’ll cover a few important topics: what features to look for in comfortable booster seats; best harness booster seat options, most comfortable high back booster seat, and best backless booster seat for road trips.

How to choose the most comfortable booster seat for long trips

What should you look for in a comfy booster seat? Based on our own experiences and feedback from our kids, we’ve put together the following “wish list” of features to look for in the most comfortable booster car seat.

The most padded booster seat

It should go without saying that a padded booster seat is a must if you expect your kid to sit in it happily for hours on end. Perhaps we were spoiled by our “home use” convertible car seats before, but we hadn’t focused on this feature when we did our initial booster seat shopping. It turns out that for our family the best car seat for long distance driving needs a lot of cushion.

This was the biggest issue we ran into with our previous harness booster seat for our younger kid – the back padding was so thin that she started to develop a persistent, red sore spot on her back after our long drives. We felt absolutely terrible seeing her uncomfortable like that! The seat was great for flying an ultralight travel, but just wasn’t comfortable enough for long drives.

There are plenty of booster car seats on the market that are essentially plastic shells with a thin fabric cover. This is especially true for some less expensive models. We checked out this model while we were on the road and considered picking it up until I felt the seat and realized it would offer even less padding!

Cup holders

For our convertible car seats, we considered the cup holders to be basically optional. Babies and toddlers usually aren’t adept enough to make proper use of them!

But as our kids have grown and gotten more independent, having cup holders for them to manage their own drinks and snacks has become a relief. It’s even more important on the long drives that we’ve been doing to give kids easy access to drinks, snacks… and yes, toys. Double cup holders = double bonus.

Even better? Removable cup holders that you can easily wash when someone spills milk!

Reclining booster seat

Now we’re talking about a moon shot! If you have a child who still falls asleep in the car, a reclining booster seat can be amazing for avoiding the dreaded “head slump”. Head slump isn’t dangerous, but it just looks uncomfortable to us as parents and sometimes kids will wake up complaining of neck pain.

Be warned that some booster seats have a recline feature only to get the correct installation angle. Only a few allow recline beyond that purely for comfort.

Other comfort features to look for

There are a few other “comfort features” you may find on different types of booster seats that would make them more comfortable for long trips with kids.

Our kids like arm rests, and you’ll find that most booster seats have them… but a few don’t! On some harness booster seats the arm rests don’t extend far enough in harness mode to be truly usable. We don’t think this is a deal-breaker, but good arm rests probably make a booster seat more comfortable for a long drive.

Highback boosters and harness boosters with padded headwings can make the ride more comfortable for sleeping in the car, in addition to the side impact protection they offer.

For kids who are still riding in a 5-point harness booster seat, they may find wide-set shoulder straps more comfortable than narrow ones. Seats with harness pads included may also help with comfort since they protect the neck from straps digging in, but just remember that you can basically never allow to add accessories like that unless they come with the car seat.

If your child is in the higher percentiles for size, you may want to look for a wide booster seat so he or she doesn’t feel squished.

Best harness booster seat options for long trips

A harness booster seat, a 5-point harness booster seat, a high back booster seat with a harness, a high back booster seat with a 5-point harness, a booster car seat with a harness… these are all different names for the same thing, which is referred to as a “combination seat” in many car seat discussion because it’s a combination of a forward-facing harnessed car seat and a booster seat (some models can only convert to a high back booster and others can also later convert to a backless booster seat).

No matter what you call it, the absolute minimum age for a child to ride in one of these seats is 2yo, but many experts recommend that you continue rear-facing until as close to 4yo as possible. You would keep one of these seats in harness mode until around 6yo – assuming at that point your child meets the size requirements and is mature enough to stay in position for hte whole ride – and then switch it to a high back booster. On some seats you can even remove the back once your child is around 8yo and meets the seat’s size requirements for the backless booster mode.

The good news is that if you buy one of these combination seats, it may very well last your kid until he passes the 5-step test and is done with booster seats entirely!

So what are the best harness booster seat options for the comfort-obsessed family?

Chicco MyFit, Chicco MyFit Zip, Chicco MyFit Zip Air Harness Booster Seat

This is the seat we just got for our daughter and we’re so glad to be back with the Chicco family and promise we won’t stray again! We’ve now used every seat stage that they offer (keep reading for their highback booster and backless booster) and it’s clear that they have safety and comfort at the top of their priorities when they design their products.

See how happy she is in the picture below? She’s already asked us to get her a MyFit for our other car! It’s the best booster seat for long trips that our family has ever used and she says it’s one of the most comfortable car seats for long trips that she’s tried.

Chicco MyFit (also on Amazon)
Chicco MyFit Zip (also on Amazon)
Chicco MyFit Zip Air (also on Amazon)

Basic stats:
-Harness from 2yo/25lbs (we recommend closer to 4yo) to 65lbs/54″
-High back booster from 4yo/40lbs/38″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 100lbs/57″
-Does not become a backless booster
-Top harness slots 20″, top booster seat belt guide 21″
*tallest harness car seat on the market today

Comfort features:
-So much padding!
-Four recline positions make it the best booster seat for a sleeping child
-Harness pads everywhere to avoid rubbing from the straps
-Two removable cupholders for easy washing, and an optional “treasure box” that kids can put in one side
-Long arm rests that are actually usable
-One of the best narrow harness booster seat options and the cup holders fold up, so it’s possible to fit three-across in many cars

What’s missing:
-The price tag is high, but isn’t hard to justify for a seat that will last most kids until 10+ years old
-The regular and Zip versions of the seat are so padded that they can be sweaty for some kids. If that’s a concern, they offer a Zip Air version with a special ventilated seat pad
-The interior seat width is just 11.5″, so it’s not ideal for kids in the upper percentiles of the growth chart

What’s the difference between the Chicco MyFit, MyFit Zip and MyFit Zip Air? The MyFit is the most basic. The Zip adds a zip-off cover that’s perfect for inevitable kid messes and potty training accidents. The MyFit Zip Air further adds a more breathable cover plus some of my favorite features like SuperCinch LATCH.

The Chicco Myfit is the best high back booster seat with harness for long drives thanks to its great comfort features

Graco Tranzitions/Graco Wayz

If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly comfortable harness booster seat, the Graco Tranzitions (or its Walmart clone, Graco Wayz) is worth considering – especially if you have a tight situation in the back seat! This slim booster seat with a harness deserves a look.

It’s light enough that this also makes a great harness booster seat for flying and the price is a true bargain given the how long it will last you. You’ll find additional colors at Walmart too. Good news – this seat is available in Canada!

Basic stats:
-Harness from 22lbs (we recommend closer to 4yo) to 65lbs
-High back booster from 30lbs (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 100lbs
-Backless booster from 40lbs (we recommend closer to 7yo) to 100lbs
-Top harness slots 18″, top booster seat belt guide 19.5″

Comfort features:
-The seat itself has pretty thin padding, but the optional pad that’s included can be used for the life of the seat and gives a nice cushy ride
-Harness pads for comfort
-Two removable cupholders for easy washing
-One of the narrower options and the cup holders can be rotated inward or removed, so it’s possible to fit three-across in many cars

What’s missing:
-The short arm rests are great in backless booster mode, but not really useful in harness mode or highback booster mode
-The seat width is just 11″, so it’s not ideal for kids in the upper percentiles of the growth chart

Britax Grow With You ClickTight Cool Flow

The venerable Britax Frontier is no more. It’s been replaced by the Britax Grow With You ClickTight line… which looks exactly the same. But there’s a HUGE difference: the new Grow With You combination seat only allows kids to use the harness until 65lbs and 49″ – a big decrease from the Frontier. That puts the harness limits right in line with nearly every other combination seat. However, it still has very high limits as a high back booster, going up to 120lbs and 63″. (The minimum height to use the seat has also increased to 34″, but that shouldn’t impact most families since the age limit is still 2 years).

There are a few options for Grow With You fabrics out there. I’d recommend the Cool Flow and Cool N Dry for child comfort, especially if you’re trying to avoid your kid getting sweaty in the car on long drives. What’s the difference? The Cool Flow covers are made of ventilated mesh, while the Cool N Dry covers are a bamboo charcoal knit that’s smooth to the touch but breathable and wicks away sweat.

Basic stats:
-Harness from 2yo/25lbs/34″ (we recommend closer to 4yo) to 65lbs/49″
-High back booster from 40lbs/44″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 120lbs/63″
-Does not become a backless booster
-Top harness slots 20.5″, top booster seat belt guide 23″

Comfort features:
-Plenty of padding on the seat and back
-Deep headwings for crash protection and sleeping
-Two cupholders
-Long arm rests that are actually usable
-Two recline positions to help with comfort and sleep (but make sure the seat is still installed level per the manual instructions)
-12″ wide seating area is great for kids who need more room
-Cool Flow and Cool N Dry options prevent kids from getting hot and sweaty

What’s missing:
-At 19″ wide on the outside, you’d be hard-pressed to fit the Britax Grow With You in a 3-across situation
-Kids on the small end of the growth chart but who are very mature (like mine) may be frustrated by the 44″ standing height minimum to use the Frontier in high back booster mode

Best high back booster seat options for long trips

If your child is old enough, big enough and mature enough to jump straight to a high back booster, there are lots of awesome choices that will be comfortable for road tripping. Just remember that, like car seats, the best high back booster seat is the one that fits your child and fits your car. Use these review to pick the most comfortable high back booster for your kids.

Chicco KidFit Zip Air

Did I mention how much our kids love their Chicco car seats? When we rolled back into Los Angeles after a year of travel, one of the first things our son requested was that we put his “blue car seat” – the Chicco KidFit Zip – back in my car. We refer to it as his throne because it’s so cushy that he feels like royalty riding around in it.

Even better? Chicco now offers a Zip Air Plus version that features more breathable fabric and a leg rest! These features makes this a solid contender for the most comfortable car booster seat of 2020 for long trips in my book.

Check prices here:
Chicco KidFit
Chicco KidFit Zip Plus
Chicco KidFit Zip Air Plus

Basic stats:
-High back booster from 4yo/40lbs/38″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 100lbs/57″
-Backless booster from 40lbs (we recommend closer to 7yo) to 110lbs/57″
-Top booster seat belt guide 19.5″

Comfort features:
-Lots of great padding
-Supportive head wings in case your kids still falls asleep on road trips
-Two removable cupholders for easy washing, and an optional “treasure box” that kids can put in one side
-Long arm rests that are actually usable
-One of the narrower options and the cup holders fold up, so it’s possible to fit three-across in many cars
-The Zip Air Plus version of the seat should be cool and offer great leg support for long rides

What’s missing:
-The 57″ height limit isn’t enough for some kids
-The seat width is just 11.5″, so it’s not ideal for kids in the upper percentiles of the growth chart
-Recommended to buckle in high back mode when empty even if you use the lower anchors

What’s the difference between the Chicco KidFit, KidFit Zip Plus and KidFit Zip Air Plus? The KidFit is the most basic and least expensive. The Zip Plus adds a few nice features like a zip-off cover in case there’s a spill (the seat can still be used without the zip-off portion, so it’s like having two covers in one!), another layer of foam comfort padding and the kid console/treasure box. On the KidFit Zip Air Plus, the zip-off cover has better ventilation and there’s also a padded leg rest to keep kids better supported.


Maxi-Cosi RodiFix

We recently got a Maxi-Cosi RodiFix and both kids love it despite the lack of cup holders and arm rests! It offers an excellent seatbelt fit for kids who are petite but ready for the responsibility of a booster seat and keeps them safe for years to come thanks to the extremely tall top belt guide (though it won’t be wide enough for some broadly-built kids as they enter the tween years). The booster seat is cushy and comfy, plus it’s easy to buckle since it narrows at the base and has no arm rests in the way.

Basic stats:
-High back booster from 40lbs/40″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 120lbs/57″
-Top booster seat belt guide 22″

Comfort features:
-Lots of great padding
-Supportive head wings in case your kids still falls asleep on road trips
-Easy to buckle
-Rigid LATCH so it won’t move around
-One of the narrower options, so it’s possible to fit three-across in many cars
-Lifetime warranty when you buy directly from Maxi-Cosi USA

What’s missing:
-The 57″ height limit isn’t enough for some kids
-Does not convert to backless booster seat
-Not ideal for kids in the upper percentiles of the growth chart
-No cup holders


Diono Monterey XT

monterey� XT

If you need a cushy, wide booster seat to keep your kid with a big build safe on long car trips, definitely give the Diono Monterey XT a look (also available on Amazon)! The seat is 12.5″ wide and 14″ deep inside – much bigger than nearly any other choice out there. Even better? The side wings can expand to give your kid plenty of room through the torso! The Monterey also has nice padding to ensure a cushy ride. The is one of the best booster seats in Canada as well – get the full selection on Diono’s Canadian website.

Basic stats:
-High back booster from 40lbs/38″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 120lbs/63″
-Backless booster from 40lbs/38″ (we recommend closer to 7yo) to 120lbs/63″
-Top booster seat belt guide 22″

Comfort features:
-Tons of space for kids of all shapes and sizes thanks to the big seat and expandable sides
-Highest weight and height limits of any booster
-Two fold-away cupholders

What’s missing:
-Some kids complain that there isn’t enough padding in the seat
-Vehicle head restraint required behind the Monterey headrest
Super wide and may be tough for a child to buckle on his or her own

Where to buy the Diono Monterey XT:
There are lots of online shops where you can buy the Diono Monterey XT. I recommend buying directly from Diono because of the new benefits offered in their Diono Difference program. When you shop through Diono.com, you’ll get an extra two years of warranty on your car seat or booster seat and free one-on-one installation help with their Child Passenger Safety Technicians. You’ll also get extra discounts on future purchases!


Britax Highpoint Cool Flow

Just like with their Frontier combination seat, Britax has a great reputation for making safe, comfortable car seats that will accommodate even the tallest riders. Their newi(ish) Highpoint booster seat replaces the older Parkway SGL. We had the fortune of renting a Britax highback booster seat on our Australia roadtrip and got great feedback on its comfort during those 1000 km!

These new seats also offer Britax Cool Flow seat covers, which keep kids cool by offering a vented mesh back. The newest version converts to a backless booster, and the Highpoint gets so tall that it’ll last almost every kid until they pass the 5-step test to use a seatbelt. For younger kids, there’s an optional, adjustable-length Secure Guard clip that hooks on to the lap belt between the legs to prevent the seatbelt from riding up to the soft part of the abdomen.

Basic stats:
-High back booster from 40lbs/44″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 120lbs/63″
-Backless booster from 48lbs/46″ (we recommend closer to 7yo) to 120lbs/63″
-Top booster seat belt guide 21.5″

Comfort features:
-Plenty of padding on the seat and back
-Deep headwings for crash protection and sleeping
-Two removable, dishwasher-safe cupholders
-12″ wide seating area is great for kids who need more room
-Cool Flow fabric prevents kids from getting hot and sweaty

What’s missing:
-The Highpoint is 19.5″ wide on the outside including the cupholders, so there’s no way it’s going to fit next to another seat on a bench
-The minimum height requirements on the latest version are too high for petite kids
-The backless mode positions the lap belt too far forward on all but the biggest kids


Nuna AACE

Nuna AACE Booster Seat Charcoal

The Nuna AACE is a bit of a dark horse, to be honest, because it can be tough to spot in the wild. But the features make it well worth a look! Like the Diono Monterey XT, it offers an expanding torso section to give bigger kids more space; on the AACE, the width changes automatically as you raise the headrest over the years. Even the depth of the seat is adjustable.

Unlike the Monterey XT, though, the Nuna AACE offers tons of padding and even recline options that you can use for a sleeping kid when you use the seat as a highback booster and attach it with LATCH.

I know, I kind of want one too.

Where can you buy this magical seat? At Pottery Barn Kids or well-known baby boutique Pishposhbaby!

Basic stats:
-High back booster from 4yo/40lbs/38″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 110lbs/60″
-Backless booster from 50lbs/38″ (we recommend closer to 7yo) to 120lbs/60″
-Top booster seat belt guide 21″

Comfort features:
-Lots of padding
-Tons of space for kids of all shapes and sizes thanks to the and expandable sides and seating area
-Eight recline settings, so it’s easy to find a comfortable one for your kid
-One removable cupholder

What’s missing:
-Not quite as tall as the Diono Monterey XT
-Premium features = premium price
Super wide and may be tough for a child to buckle on his or her own


Peg Perego Viaggio HBB 120

If your kid likes to ride in luxury, they’ll love the Peg Perego Viaggio HBB 120. It offers great padding and recline to keep kids comfortable on long drives. It’s also one of the best narrow booster seats at 16″, so it’ll fit nicely in any car and even next to other car seats.

It’s also one of the more sophisticated looking booster seats available and will blend well into dark car upholstery. Like all offerings from Peg Perego, it definitely qualifies as a luxury booster car seat – though the price tag puts it in line with more pedestrian looking seats.

Basic stats:
-High back booster from 40lbs/39″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 120lbs/57″
-Backless booster from 40lbs/39″ (we recommend closer to 7yo) to 120lbs/57″
-Top booster seat belt guide 19″

Comfort features:
-Lots of padding
-Nice fabric that’s designed to keep kids cool
-Some recline available for car sleepers (not as much as other reclining booster seats like the KidFit)

What’s missing:
-The cupholders don’t have a bottom, so kids can’t store their toys and treasures for long drives
-May not be big enough for kids on the top of the growth chart


Clek Oobr

You may not see it on the shelves at many mass-market stores, but the Clek Oobr is an excellent booster seat for road trips. Clek has done an amazing job with both this seat and their Olli below of stuffing in as many comfort and safety features as possible. This is probably one of the most comfortable booster car seats available. It’s also one of the best booster seats in Canada these days – Clek is one of the only companies that sells dual-certified car seats for both the US and Canada. At 18″ wide, it’s also a relatively narrow high back booster seat so it could be helpful for families with a tight 3-across in the back.

Basic stats:
-High back booster from 4yo/33lbs/38″ (we recommend closer to 6yo) to 100lbs/57″
-Backless booster from 40lbs/40″ (we recommend closer to 7yo) to 120lbs/57″
-Top booster seat belt guide 20.5″

Comfort features:
-Tons of padding, including Clek’s “Comfort Cube” technology
-Reclining booster car seat in high back mode to make sleeping kids comfortable (but only when installed with LATCH)
-One removable cup holder (can go on either side)
-Soft, padded arm rests
-One of the narrower options and the cup holder is removable, so it’s possible to fit three-across in many cars
-Seat is a roomy 12.5″ wide

What’s missing:
-The 57″ height limit
-In high back mode, the seat can be a little shallow for some older kids (but fine once switched to backless mode)

Are you debating the Nuna AACE vs Clek Oobr? If your child is broadly built, I’d probably pick the AACE thanks to the adjustable width. But for average or small kids, the Oobr will be easier for them to buckle on their own and easier to fit another seat or big kid next to it. It really comes down to your family’s specific needs, but in the Clek Oobr vs Nuna AACE fight you can’t really go wrong!


Best backless booster seat for long trips

Chicco GoFit & GoFit Plus

Yet another Chicco booster seat seat we own… are you sensing a theme? We picked up the GoFit in Hawaii when we encountered an issue with the seat we brought for our son. We actually bought him a different one initially because it was cheaper, but it was totally unpadded and the seatbelt often got stuck in the guide. Back to the store it went…

The GoFit has been a great choice for long drives over the last few months. It’s essentially the same as the bottom of the KidFit, with tons of padding and awesome cupholders. It even has a carrying handle built in, so it was easy to take on-board for flights and store it either under our son’s seat or in the overhead bin (since you can’t use a booster seat in-flight).

Our son rides in his Chicco GoFit often and he reports that it’s one of the most comfortable backless booster seat choices we own. Two thumbs up!

There are now two versions available: the regular GoFit and the GoFit Plus, which adds LATCH to keep the booster from flying around when it isn’t in use. If we need to buy another, I’ll get the Plus!

Check prices here:
Chicco GoFit
Chicco GoFit Plus

Basic stats:
-Backless booster from 4yo/40lbs/38″ (we recommend closer to 6-7yo) to 110lbs/57″

Comfort features:
-Lots of great padding
-Two removable cupholders for easy washing, and an optional “treasure box” that kids can put in one side
-Long arm rests that are actually usable
-One of the fairly narrow backless booster seat options and the cup holders fold up, so it’s possible to fit three-across in many cars
-The GoFit Plus won’t slide around when your child gets in an out thanks to LATCH

What’s missing:
-The 57″ height limit isn’t tall enough for some kids to pass the 5-step test
-The seat width is just 11.5″, so it’s not ideal for kids in the upper percentiles of the growth chart

The Chicco GoFit (or GoFit Plus) is the best backless booster seat for a comfortable ride

Clek Olli

Clek Olli Backless Booster Seat shadow

Just like its big sibling, the Clek Oobr, the Clek Olli is a well-engineered piece of gear with more safety and comfort features than you might expect for such a simple-looking booster seat. It has rigid LATCH to keep the seat stable when your kid is getting in and to prevent it from flying around in an accident. Despite all the advanced features, the Olli weighs just 5lbs and is be easy to fly with thanks to the included shoulder strap (optional on the less expensive Clek Ozzi). Like other Clek car seats, this one is a-ok to use in Canada!

Basic stats:
-Backless booster from 40lbs/40″ (we recommend closer to 6-7yo) to 120lbs/57″

Comfort features:
-Tons of padding, including Clek’s “Comfort Cube” technology
-One removable cup holder (can go on either side)
-Soft, padded arm rests
-One of the narrower options and the cup holder is removable, so it’s possible to fit three-across in many cars
-Seat is a roomy 12.5″ wide

What’s missing:
-The 57″ height limit isn’t tall enough for some kids to pass the 5-step test


Peg Perego Viaggio Shuttle 120

For kids nearing the end of their booster riding days, the Peg Perego Viaggio Shuttle 120 offers a safe, comfortable option – a wide seat and lots of padding. There’s also an integrated carry handle to make it easy to transport for flights if you’re planning a far-flung road trip!

Basic stats:
-Backless booster from 40lbs/39″ (we recommend closer to 6-7yo) to 120lbs/63″

Comfort features:
-Lots of padding
-Nice fabric that’s designed to keep kids cool
-Wide seating area to keep kids comfortable even at the top of the stated size range
-12 year lifespan before expiration, so this booster can be passed down to younger siblings, cousins and friends

What’s missing:
-The cupholders don’t have a bottom, so kids can’t store their toys and treasures for long drives
-The price tag is hard to stomach compared to other backless boosters


Bubblebum inflatable booster seat

The Bubblebum booster seat isn’t your traditional booster… it rolls up to the size of a soda bottle when it’s not in use and then inflates in a few seconds when you need it, become a full-fledged, safety tested backless booster seat. It even passes safety testing when deflated, just in case. It’s one of the narrowest booster seat options on the market, so the Bubblebum is perfect for fitting 3-across in a compact rental car.

Is it as comfortable as the backless booster seats above? Probably not. It’s no-frills. But if your family’s travels will take you far from home and then on a long drive, it’s worth considering as another great travel booster seat option. It’s certainly more comfort-oriented than the other foldable booster seat that many families consider.

It’s also a real bargain. Our son has done thousands of miles of driving in his Bubblebum on six continents and never complained about comfort. You can read our complete Bubblebum review here.

Basic stats:
-Backless booster from 4yo/40lbs (we recommend closer to 6-7yo) to 11yo/100lbs

Comfort features:
-Cushy seat – almost like sitting on a cloud!
-Narrow enough to fit 3-across
-Light enough to have with you at all times

What’s missing:
-No cup holders
-No arm rests
-Relatively narrow, shallow seating area

The Bubblebum is a comfortable travel booster seat even if it lacks some of the fancy features found on other comfortable backless booster seats

We hope you’ve found this guide helpful and that it gets your family comfortably on the road. Do you have another recommendation for an amazingly comfortable booster seat for long trips? Leave us a note in the comments.
