    Yup, that´s the only seat in Europe that harnesses to 36 kg. The pricetag is the reason that we imported a Regent from the US

    There are several seats that harness to 25 kg in Europe. Most of them even RF to that limit.

    I found a nice lady, who had listed her brand new and never out of the box Regent. I Emailed her to ask, if she would send it to me in Denmark. She aggreed. I paid 217 car seat + 157 shipping USD and another 625 DKR Custom´s Department at Copenhagen Airport. It came to a total of 2600 DKR.

    The Traveller Plus costs 7000 DKR and is basically the same seat with only two differences. They are made of the exact same marterials.

    Take your pick!

    Just to warn you. the Ebay store called Brand Deals write they will ship the seat worldwide. THEY DON`T AND WON`T and they are SO RUDE.

    oh thanks! i think i might ask my sisters friend who lives in america for a little help. she comes over quite regularly so think that might be the best option! (just hadnt thought about that before! )
    but yeah, definitely worth it imo, its about lives, not laws after all

    this website shows the carseat in two available sizes, but i don't know if it was my browser acting funny with the html or me just being a bit dim, but i couldn't find a separate price for the bigger size. goodluck if it is cheaper there!
