    5 point booster for tall kids - other options than Frontier?

    Well I guess we're shopping for a new seat as my son is now too tall for the Marathon. He's only 45 inches tall but his shoulder height when sitting is 17 inches. He's about 46 pounds and will be 5 years old in the fall. Any other suggestions of what to buy next other than the Britax Frontier? I'm not a huge fan of the Frontier as we have one in my DH's car and tightening it is a PITA but I understand it has one of the highest shoulder restraint heights for a 5 point harness so it may in fact be the best option for us but I'd love to hear other suggestions. TIA
    Also if anyone knows of a Frontier sale in Canada please pass it along!

    Why not an Evenflo Sureride? That will last him a long while.

    I would try the Harmony Defender or the Graco Atlas/Tranzitions.
