Yes, please! Not that I'd need either, but still curious.

i have a narrower car than a prius for 3-across and would love to know:

- the width at the widest.
- if it sits high up like britaxes or low.
- of potential visibility issues if installed RFing in the center.
- any anti-rebound measures like rear tether or a bar?
- heck, any real spec/info. (i'm tired of "estimate" measurements.)

maybe because i'm usually on a cellphone, searches come up bare, but not much info out there! with such a terrible name, maybe reviewers are using incorrect names?

thank you!!

If you can get me all the measurements that are in the measurements/data convertible forum, I will get a new entry added for this seat.

They are in stock at the Indianapolis, IN BBB! I have one on hold and I'm picking it up tomorrow! The only problem is that I am getting it on my way out on a trip so I won't be back in town (or with my boys) to play with it and take pics/measurements until Tuesday. At that point though I can take pics of an 18 month and 4 yr old in it.

Oh, and how much it weighs, too... maybe a better travel seat for ERF than the Radian?

I am hoping to purchase one next week....if it seems like it will be a fit for my car & baby!

How easy is the harness to tighten with a baby in it? this is the main complaint I have out of almost every seat I've had.

Pictures!!!!! Please!!!!!
It does not puzzle next to an Argos 70 or Snugride 30 in a Prius. The Prius back seat is simply too narrow.

I would rate the harness system as pretty typical for convertibles to tighten rear-facing on a baby. It seems a bit easier forward facing. My 7-year old son (57 lbs., 52" tall) can barely secure and release the buckle, though.

My scale says 19 pounds. It seems a bit lighter than a Radian, but of course it will be bulkier because it's a farily big convertible and does not fold.

Top slots are approximately 17.25". My son is almost right at the limit. Bottom slots are about 7" with the infant insert, close to 8" without the insert. It does not fit the Huggable Images 4lb. preemie doll. It does, however, fit the Huggable Images 7lb. newborn doll very well for a convertible, right out of the box! (See photos)

As with the prototype I saw earlier this year, I have to say this is perhaps the easiest LATCH system to remove from a car that I've seen. The pull-strap is more intuitive than even the deluxe push-button system on many higher end carseats. Plus, you get separate LATCH attachments for front and rear-facing, so no re-routing is needed. Adjusting the harness height is a breeze, too.

Unboxing video coming soon to www.carseatblog.com

Darren can you compare it to how much harness height he has left in the Argos installed?

How does the seat height compare a Radian with an angle adjuster?

It looks like it sits more upright FF than the MyRide does. Does it IRL? It's one of my main complaints with the Myride

The recline looks funky to me...but the curves on the outside of the seat may be playing tricks on me. Darren, does your son think it is comfortable? It almost looks like a funk recline where a kid would constantly be trying to sit up, kwim? So hard to explain on a keyboard lol

That pattern looks like the tiles my grandparents used to have in their kitchen. That's not a complaint, merely an observation.

I think the recline wouldn't look so weird if it weren't for his long legs. It sort of looks like he's spilling forward out of it.

Thank you so much for the measurements.....makes me sad that it didnt puzzle with the argos tho =[ I'm not familiar with your car however....I drive a Neon, is it smaller than that? is your middle seat raised? A MR65 puzzles with my nauti in my neon so I was hoping the Size 4 Me would as well, but just take up less room LOL

I am really LOVING this seat right now & I do believe I'll be getting one to try for myself =]

Jessimamma 08:59 PM 06-03-2012
Also, maybe it's just the angle of the pic....but it looks to me as if it might take up less front to back space rf than the MR65! If so, that would be awesome!!!

Graco just commented on a post on their wall re: RF height limit

IMO they answered in a "whole lot of vague" with the seated height thing. There has to be a seated height limit either with 1 inch, to the top of the seat or a random standing height limit... You cannot have a 37 pound kid with straps below their shoulders and their head 2 inches above the shell! But acccording to the incomplete info. given you can...

Yep, I agree. I asked about a 1" rule and headrest positions. We will see.
