    what car seat is this?

    so i was being nosy, while standing and talking to a friend last night, in the car next to us i saw a rearfacing seat that i didn't recognize, it looked new (not beat up, or dirty, no twisty straps...
    anyway is was kinda low profile not very deep, the weird part to me was that the cover went all they way down the back of the seat coving the straps in the back and i didn't see a tether or anything, it was all covered..... looked as though it was zippered or Velcro closed

    I wonder if it was an aftermarket cover?

    maybe, but it didn't look it and i couldn't make out the shape of another seat.. the cover was very plain, i would think if it was aftermarket it might be more "fancy"

    Doesn't sound familiar to me, either. Aftermarket cover would be my best guess.
    Down to just a spare Radian, folded in the hall closet for my Godbaby.

    My two way's cover zips up the whole back, and is low profile, and doesn't have a top tether like american seats do....



    Not the best picture but it was in my photobucket lol

    the straps make me think some kind of Britax

    DS (6-2-09) in Radian XT
    DS2 (3-17-12) in Radian 80

    Hoping it wasn't a US Britax Elite - same lines, zip cover, green plaid. No shoulder covers, had chestclip. Had a versa-tether, but it mounted lower on the seat and was hard to see from outside a vehicle.

    Last ones expired a good 6 years ago.
