    is that a "good seat"?
    The harness is a little low, so it depends on what you need it for. RF, it would be great. It also has built in lock offs and you don't have to rethread the harness!

    Is the daisy booster the only one that comes with the carrying bag?

    Was wanting for both RF and FF - I've seen several different threads on her with different heights for the top harness slot. Ranging from 16.5 to 18.

    Does anyone actually have a TF that coudl measure? That will make all the difference.

    so which is better? 510 or 530 for the booster? Looking for one to buy for my daycare's van for her as a backup. Looking at Giraffe or cappuccino

    I think Lisa was right at 16". We saw it at lifesavers conference. I was sold on it, until I realized that the harness was to low for me FFing.

    I saw pic's of it taken at lifesavers that managed the top harness height at 18"? The thread is in CMC, I'll have to go look for it.

    (It's also what Compass stated for the slot height. )

    Start at post 7 for pictures, discussion about slot height continues further down. It says they measured 18".

    But you can get the Giraffe, and then the bag separately. adding it all up after the sale, the bag only costs you $5 more.

    The 505 is the short one. It doesn't matter for us because we have two turbos and three parkways in reserve, this would be a travel/grandma/emergency seat.

    Do I understand correctly that the daisy one comes with the travel bag? If so, I can get that one because I was factoring in the cost of a bag.

    Is the 530 shorter than the 510 as well?

    I get so confused by Compass and their B5** line. You'd think the higher model number would be newer/better.

    I can't get on their site either...I guess that's one way to keep from buying what I don't HAVE to have.
