    seat with most leg room for RFing?

    I know there has been a thread on this before but I cant seem to find it. Which rear facing convertable has the most legroom for a rear facing 13 month old? He is in a BV now but legs are getting squiched.

    Radian, My Ride 65 and the True fit are the top three. I think the Complete air was pretty good for leg room as well. Just about anything has more room than Britax, with the exception of Recaro

    A lot depends on the size and shape of the child and the way the seats install, but the MyRide and the Radian usually have quite a bit.

    The CA is slightly less than the radian, but not much as far as leg room is concerned. And it may be the same, because the radian was really reclined and the CA is very much upright, which could easily explain the difference!
