    Canada Replacing crashed seats

    CANADIAN ?: So DH was rear-ended yesterday and now I need to replace a SureRide and a Peg Convertible. I've got a FF 4yo (in the SR) and a RF 2yo (in the Peg). I kinda hate the Peg and love the SR (especially for travel.) I've got a Radian already. These seats need to fit side-by-side in a Kia Rondo. My RF 2yo goes in the middle to separate my fight-prone 10yo (passenger-side, adult belt) and 4yo. The middle has long buckle-stalks.

    The nice thing about the Peg is its less-than-45° available recline. Otherwise it's just heavy and I hate its closed belt-paths. Someone suggested the Marathon Clicktight instead of the Peg? I think I'm pretty settled on just replacing the SR with another, but am considering maybe a Defender? I don't know. Ideas? TIA!

    Re: Replacing crashed seats

    Ever tried a Fllo? Love mine! Even more leg room than the Peg. Nice and tall so long buckle stalks shouldn't be a problem. I don't think I would ever buy a Marathon for an already 2 year old. The leg room is non-existent, and the crotch strap is really short. In the land of ice and snow where our kids have to wear layers, and snow boots, etc, it would just be a nightmare. I have a Boulevard G4.1 that I won from carseatblog that I will be using rear-facing with a newborn, and till he is maybe two. Then I will switch to the Fllo, and maybe put my then 4 year old in it forward-facing.

    The Fllo has closed belt paths too, yes? And the height I worry about for visibility since she's in the middle. I will take a closer look though!

    No, the Fllo is open. You remove the seat cushion to install.

    Probably the best of anything I've had yet. It's a nasty spot, what with the seat split and long buckle stalks, but the lock offs (which help with the tipping into the split,) high belt-path and narrowness make it a win for me. Thanks for the suggestion!
