    Re: The OFFICIAL Britax Frontier Spoilers & Speculation thread (part 5)

    Boo, with a child in the 95th percentile for height I think I'll have to get my hands on a Regent with as late of a DOM as possible when they are discontinued (whether DH likes it or not) since my son is so young. Or try and snag one from someone year in the next yearish ;p

    I don't get why they didn't keep the harness height the same as the Regent (whatever their technical measurement is) since it has the same weight limit in harnessed mode, that just seems silly to me.

    I think the Regents aren't being discontinued. Just not being carried at BRU anymore

    There has been speculation from some folks that the top slots can't be as high on the Frontier because it's a smaller shell. Maybe the smaller shell can't support higher top slots?

    You know, Julie, Sarah said it was NOT being discontinued UNLESS the Frontier sales started eating up the Regent sales. If that happens, the Regent will be discontinued. Another Britax rep (a guy) told someone else that the Regent will be discontinued at some point.

    I hope it doesn't happen, but I won't be surprised if it does.

    i've read tons on here &the rgeent being discontinued is NOT true. it will depend on sales tho. if the regent gets blown out of the water by the frontier than the rgeent will be discontinued. but for now the rgeen tis here & available. you should be able to buy a regent when your lil guy needs it

    We can all get Roosevelts, they are better than Regents anyway (you know, in the future, if the Regent is d/c'd...)

    Well I only need the Regent to keep being made til my 16 month old outgrows rear facing so I'll cross my fingers He's so darned tall I'll be thrilled if we make it to 2.

    The Regent, while everyone
    is comparing, cannot be used
    as a booster seat. We have
    not seen enough photos to
    really compare yet. You also
    need to pay attention to the
    torso height, and how quickly
    your child would grow each
    year. The child i'm hoping to
    buy one for is older than the
    child in these photos, but
    much lighter and shorter.

    Hehe, the Roosevelt was NICE. It appeared narrower than the Regent by a bit, with taller top slots. I could never justify the cost, though. It makes the Recaro Start and even the Safeguard Child Seat seem cheap!

    Britax themselves says 18.25 inches, correct?

    My friend's son has about a 19 inch torso, and he was definitely over the top slots when we tried him in it at Lifesavers this weekend.

    This boy's mother said his torso is about 16.5, and it looks like he has 2ish inches to grow to the top slots, so yeah, that sounds about right.

    I think we all know the Regent can't be used as a booster.

    I also think we all need to remember that there is no perfect seat -- if there was, we'd all have it. Some of us will decide that the Frontier works for us, and some of us will decide that it won't. (My opinion, which is worth exactly what you paid for it, is that) These are decisions that we as parents, knowing our kids and our budgets, need to make. It's not really appropriate to try to convince other posters that yeah, the seat will work just fine or no, the seat's junk.

    yup I am aware that the Regent isn't a booster. I personally prefer to choose each seat for what it's best and worry about a booster and buy a dedicated booster when I get there I have an only child so I don't worry about passing down or such.

    Does the Frontier come with
    a tether bolt?

    No. Tether bolts need to come from car dealerships for your vehicle, they don't come with car seats.

    Really just the seat and it's parts. LATCH straps, top tether strap. Is there something specific you're looking for?

    Nope, just worried that some
    small piece may fall out or not
    be included and I will not know
    it is missing.
