    Current Convertibles with a No-Rethread Harness PLS

    I'm hoping to make a shortlist of current convertible seats with a no rethread harness.

    I know the TrueFit is, I know the Britax seats are... I'm not really interested in either of those (one for the rfing weight limit, the other for it's non-existent leg room)

    I need a seat for my VW Jetta that will RF my 2.5 yo DS (36.5" 32.5lbs) and my 1yo DD (29.5" 18lbs). I don't want to have to rethread each time the other uses it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

    So you're looking for something with at least a 40lb RFing limit, right? Besides the new Britaxes, I think only the Complete Air will fit the bill.

    Re: Current Convertibles with a No-Rethread Harness PLS

    i didn't know the CA was no re-thread. I'm going to have to check it out more closely next time I am at BRU. I was hoping that 2011 would bring some decent options but it looks like I'm stuck picking out of 2010 inventory as far as everything but the Britax seats! BOOOO!

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    It's also possible that the EFTA65 and Momentum will be switched to 40 lbs rear-facing in the new year.

    I know. I pre-ordered one and was not happy when I got it! At least they have the limits right on the TRU website now. Of course I returned the seat. Now I have an EFTA sitting here for my SIL, and I just wish it was mine, cause I love that seat
