    I love the look of it.

    my only concern now that I've seen the pic... does it prevent putting the seat more upright for older rfers??

    No, it does not prevent it from installing more upright. We actually did install it more upright, but could not get Jordan to get in it again.

    Kimberly (Safeinthecar) and I made a trip up to Sacramento (to Goores) yesterday. It was meet the manufacturer/rep day, so the Compass rep brought that prototype.

    Thanks for driving Kimberly!

    I like the look of the design and it takes care of the whole pain of finding a rear facing tether point.

    My concern is does it somewhat lessen room for legs for older rear facers? It doesn't exactly look comfy to curl legs up on.

    Actually, if you compare the amount of leg room he had in the pictures, with the amount of leg room he has in the Marathon in my siggy, you can see that he has more leg room in the Trufit. He has never complained about legroom in his marathon, so I don't see that being an issue.

    One other thing about the seat that I thought was kind of neet, just above the harness adjuster there is a leveling window with a ball in it. It shows where the ball should be for an infant, and where it should be for a toddler. Sorry you can't see it in the picture, Jordan's foot was in the way.

    Nice. Wonder if it will be out before Kira outgrows the RA rear facing.

    Re: Pics of the Trufit with anti-rebound foot

    Does the foot make it easier to access the adjuster? I am considering getting this seat for RF use, but I was concerned about the location of the harness adjuster being pushed into the seat back.

    *prays* DD, please don't outgrow your Snugride before January!!

    Do you know if they are going to have a wider range of colors for the covers? I saw a cool one on the car seat blog that was grayish with ovals on it - I would totally love that as a cover choice!

    Yes, there is a square hole in the foot right where the adjuster is. The foot/hole creates a small gap at the adjuster, so you can easily access the adjuster. Just make sure when installing it, the adjuster strap does not fall through the hole and get sandwiched between the foot and the seatback.

    Thanks. That sounds easy. Now I just have to hope that my little on in the MA doesn't gain 5 pounds before this is released.

    Re: Pics of the Trufit with anti-rebound foot

    It was really easy to adjust more upright. Also, the way the anti rebound bar hits the seat back makes it possible to install the seat sitting further back on the vehicle seat. so you can get *a lot* of legroom if you want it, as long as your seat is deep enough.

    On a side note, the rep said that the HIC on the Truefit with the rebound bar is under 400. (1000 is the max, Britax MA with rfing tether is around 700)

    I liked everything about the new Truefit except 2 minor details. 1. It takes two hands to close the lockoffs. That annoys me, but isn't hard to do. 2. I still think it is fuggly looking.

    Re: Pics of the Trufit with anti-rebound foot

    I'm loving this seat! I was already planning to get a Truefit for baby #2 when it outgrows the infant seat, and that was before I learned about the new anti-rebound foot. I LOVE how spacious this seat is for an older child and all the rear-facing legroom it has. And it sounds like the foot on it solves the problem with the adjuster being hard to access.

    it is on a hinge at the front of the seat, so it folds under the seat to create a "base" to the seat.
