Which infant seat will last longer Chicco Keyfit 22 vs. Safety 1st Onboard 35 Air

I have a feeling I know which one, but thought I'd ask. I have both as demo seats with the possibility of using them with our newest little one as a backup. DS was a big baby at almost 9 lbs and a tall torso, so I'm guessing this one will be too. So which one should I keep?

onBoard.

Chicco (this was a 30, but they're the same height):


onBoard:


Both of those were taken last week. Laine is 28.5 months, 24 pounds, and has a 12.25" torso.

That's the second time this week I've heard that the 22 and the 30 are the same height. Yet the measurement chart says the 30 is taller. Does anyone know for sure? Not that it matters, since obviously the On Board will last longer. It's just something I want to know!!

Yep, 22 and 30 are the same shell.
