    Diono Monterey fabric? Mesh?

    My search didn't turn up a recent thread on this. Our purple Monterey arrived today and I did not realize a bunch of that fabric cover would be mesh. I am not a fan of mesh and the other parts are so nice. Why oh why? Anyway, do all the colors have the mesh? how bad is it? Does it wear quickly? I am mostly used to the nice plush Britax covers, so the mesh seems really bad to me.

    Not a fan of mesh myself. Thought I saw some on my old favourite the Shadow cover too...I will tell you the quality of the mesh on the old SKJP seats is better than the mesh on most other brands. Also, I had a problem w/ mine and complained. They happily sent me a replacement cover...

    I barely even noticed it to tell you the truth! I have the plum as well. I have not had any issues with it, it seems sturdy.

    Good to know. Thanks. The other parts of the fabric are really nice. Hoping to have time to try it in the car, for fit and belt retraction, tonight. Wish us luck!

    Same here. I think the big difference is it isn't where feet would touch, just where the butt goes. IIRC that was the problem with the nautilus covers was shoes ripping the mesh or making it threadbare.
