    Aquos 65

    Does anyone know anything about the Aquos 65 for Babies R Us by Safety 1st?

    It's rear facing through 40lbs, and I measured it as having tall shell. Has easily adjustable straps etc etc, and is on sale for $100 from $140. Seems too good to be true... is this a good seat?

    I *think* it's just a Guide 65. I don't know why Dorel has to have 5 bazillion names for the same stinkin seat!

    Re: Aquos 65

    I have an Aquos. DD rides in it almost daily, as I have it installed in our around town vehicle, a Toyota Tundra. I like it well enough. DD is comfy in it (though she doesn't sleep in the car, so I don't know about that) and it is easy to install. I like the no rethread straps. I don't care for the continuous harness so much, but I find it a lot easier to manage than the one on the CA. The adjuster strap does seem very short; it works ok for my 38" 34lb DD, but there's only about 12-14" of tail when it's tightened. She has 2-3" above her head still (about average torso, slightly long legs). It is a Dorel seat and does have the 40" rule, but after reading the arguments I've decided I'm comfortable exceeding 40" in it.

    Here she is in January:


    and a few weeks ago, the one and only time she's ever fallen asleep in it:
    Megan, mama to Genevieve (7/09) booster, Kristoffer (2/12, 37lbs, 45") ffing Nextfit, and Theodore (9/14, 27lbs, 36") rfing Marathon CT. Expecting #4 6/30, will be riding in a Snugride30.
