    Are these new Nautilus covers?

    I don't recall seeing these before. [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Graco-Nautilus-Elite-Seat-Vice/dp/B00BR0OMG0/ref=sr_1_2?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1370228124&sr=1-2"]Amazon.com: Graco Nautilus Elite 3-in-1 Car Seat, Vice: Baby[/ame]

    Perhaps I live under a rock, though.


    And is this a new Argos cover? [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Argos-70-3-in-1-Car-Seat/dp/B00B5LS5KK/ref=sr_1_79?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1370228253&sr=1-79"]Amazon.com: Argos 70 3-in-1 Car Seat: Baby[/ame]

    Not sure if they are new or not...but they're nice! The Argos one reminds me a bit of the Lauren SR30 cover. So pretty!

    Oh I love that Argos cover. The orange Nauti cover sucks bc most of the color will be gone when the padding is taken out. Boo.

    Re: Are these new Nautilus covers?

    Nice to see the Elite models back. Tangerine is a brand new cover for the Click Connect infant seats, so, yeah, new. Vice? Really?
    I hope they do a convertible in Tangerine, so no one wants to go straight from an infant seat to a Nautilus....

    The cover is named "Vice"? Exactly what I want for my preschooler, thanks.

    I agree!

    I liked the Elite model and am glad to see it back, too!

    Thinking about it more, maybe they just know there are addicts out there, and they are teasing us? Like when Britax used the name Foofy after reading it on the PP message board years ago?

    Re: Are these new Nautilus covers?

    I don't remember this Turbo cover, either. [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Graco-Backless-Booster-Car-Seat/dp/B00CXVH5P2/ref=sr_1_154?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1370291362&sr=1-154"]Amazon.com: Graco Backless Booster Car Seat - Liala: Baby[/ame]


    Again, I could be wrong that these are new! I don't peruse carseat manufacturers' pages, nor store shelves, the way I used to.

    They're new-ish. I remember loving the Tangerine until someone pointed out that there is no orange on the cover (other than the headrest).

    Re: Are these new Nautilus covers?

    Yeah, I find it VERY irritating that the colors on Graco seats are generally on the inserts. Once you remove the insert, you lose almost all the color!




    AND, in the case of the Nautilus/Argos, by the time a child is actually ready for the seat, he/she is WAY too big for the insert (since it can only be used when using the first harness slot).

    (That hasn't changed recently, has it?)

    Re: Are these new Nautilus covers?

    I think the newest seats have two slots on the insert so kids can use them in the two lowest positions now. Not sure about the Argos since there are no slots, actually, now that I try to remember it, lol.
