    "Coolest" Breathable convertible car seat?

    I'm desperately looking for recommendations for car seats that have vents or breathable fabric. My son is 16 months. I don't have his stats, but he is ~ 100% head, maybe 80% weight and 40% height. He is currently RF in a Chicco Nextfit and he gets VERY sweaty in it, drenched if it's a long trip. We live 20 minutes out of town so we spend a lot of time in the vehicle. This of course makes him uncomfortable and he screams all the time in the vehicle. So I'm on a desperate hunt to find a car seat that will keep him cooler. No budget. I drive a 2014 Dodge Durango.

    Any recommendations? A few I have considered:

    Diono Rainier - due to very low sides - more air flow?
    Evenflo Symphony DLX - temp regulating fabric
    Recaro Performance Rally - vents on seat to keep cool

    I have tried a noggle before, with my daughter, and ended up selling it. Wasn't a fan of the thing going from the front vent to the back. Plus it broke my vent. So the noggle is not an option THANK YOU!

    Peg Perego makes a Clima cover for their convertible that is supposed to keep the child warm in winter and cooler in summer.

    There's the Chicco Nextfit Zip Air, I've heard very good things about it being less sweaty than the regular Nextfit.

    And you may be able to contact Chicco and just get the air replacement cover.
