    New Graco Nautilus

    I have had the Graco Nautilus for about a week and really like it! My son is riding in it and he will be four in a few weeks. He was 42lbs a few months ago and is about 42 1/2 inches tall. It is currently installed in our 2005 Toyota Sequoia.

    The strap height is 18 inches (I measured it today), 19 inches at the widest point (the base) and 13 inches deep. It is easy to install.

    The headrest is adjustable in height which I love because it offers better protection. This picture is when the head portion is at the highest:

    These pictures are how I currently have it positioned :

    http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/j...carseat001.jpg

    It harnesses to 65lbs and then converts into a belt positioning booster to 100lbs and can even be used as a backless booster.

    It has a few features my son loves including a built in cup holder and side pockets which are currently storing snacks.

    I haven't had to remove the cover, but directions are included in manual. Adjusting strap height was easy.

    I will include more pictures with my son in the morning. He was napping when I took these. I will write a full review when I have a chance, but so far we are very happy with the product.

    NICE! Those top slots look tall! I might have to hunt me down one of these and stick H in it.

    You should win some kind of award for being the first to post pics of this seat.

    They aren't in the stores yet, but I was told they should be arriving soon. I haven't heard what the price will be either. If I get more info I will post it.

    agreed, especially if you can use it without head support from the vehicle seat.

    Re: New Graco Nautilus

    Oh la la!! New seat porn! LOL Thank you very much for the photos. Imagine suggesting to someone a Graco as a long term seat. And this one won't require headrests behind it. If it's got a decent price tag I think Dorel is going to see a huge hit against the Apex. Especially as this one becomes a low back and doesn't look anywhere near as wide. And it has full belt guides rather than just the tops of guides.

    Me likes. :-)

    I couldn't find it on Graco's website. I searched by Nautilus and went through all the boosters and convertibles.

    WOW! I'm so excited that there's another HWH option out there! Seems like a great seat at an affordable price! The manufacturers are finally catching on it seems .

    Re: New Graco Nautilus

    Does anyone have more information on this seat? When it comes out, price, etc? It doesn't need an adjustable headrest like the Apex? Wow... hmmm, maybe I'll wait until this one comes out and compare the two. I already bought a Britax Regent for $197.00 through Ebay (seller has receipt, brand new, in box)... so if this Graco seat is selling for a good price, I may get this one instead of the Apex.
