    foonf vs pria vs sure fit

    Hi all, I've been asking alot of questions on many seats. I just cant decide. I was intending to leave DS in his current seat until he outgrew it. But, I'm going to need his seat for my babysitting 12mos old.

    My DS is in a MR65, witch I love. He has about 2" of hard shell left, 3" total. He has a nice amount of leg room left. He's has a longer torso for sure.

    He's 2yrs 10 mos. 37.5" and 34lbs. I like the Sure Ride for the high top slots ffing. The foonf for the weight. And the pria for the top slot hieght.

    I want to rf until 4 if possible, then use the seat I get ff until booster age.

    I have a huge 12 Passenger van. So size don't matter, but....the foonf May put him up really high, maybe he'll touch the ceiling to much....

    Thank you. How old was E at the time? I think that's why DS loves the My Ride, he can see out the Windows, lol. So I guess that's a plus I wasn't thinking of.

    I can't speak to the other seats, but I love DD's Pria. The fabric is much more breathable than any other seat I've touched, and the padding seems super comfy. DD falls asleep it it more often than not (rather difficult to get home before nap time without a cat nap in the car first)! She is 20 months, was 24lbs and 31" at her 18 month check up, and has tons of leg room. I chose the seat for the RF weight limit, height of the harness, no-rethread harness, and the plushness of the fabric. Here's a pic of her in the seat.

    And one of her fast asleep (taken from the front seat using the mirror).

He now is 11 years 11 months, and towering over me.
    Are you sure you're talking about a Foonf? It just came out a few months ago.

    Do you mean you are new to the United States or that Foonf is new to the United States? Either way, the Clek Foonf has only been released anywhere, ever- for a few months. I don't remember exctly the release date, but it was sometime in LATE 2012 or 2013, and we're only 3 months into 2013, so not long at all.

    Perhaps you're thinking of a different seat....

    Clek is a Canadian company and as far as I know their seats are only available in the US and Canada at this point. Are you sure it's not a Kiddy or Britax? AxKid maybe? The foonf does not come in all black with red accents either.

    There was no Axkid 6 years ago.

    Maybe it was this one? Does look vaguely similar in shape to Foonf. But it needs a separate isofix frame to be used RF.

    On the other hand, "bar against the seat", it has "latch and anchor" maybe it's the Britax HiWay? Sorry for the offtopick just curious ...

    Re: foonf vs pria vs sure fit

    Kel, what 12p van do you have? Where will you be installing this seat, and with LATCH or seatbelt? I'm asking because the GM & Chev vans have some serious problems with outboard seatbelt installs.
    17yrs, 15yrs, 13yrs, 11yrs , 9yrs (58", 75lbs, Incognito), 7yrs (46", 50lbs, Dreamtime), 5yrs (41", 35lbs, RN), 3yrs (30lbs, RF Marathon), NB (Peg 4-35)
    '14 Mazda5, '06 Chevy Express, '08 Toyota Tundra
