    Monarch vs Monterey

    Do you have a preference for one over the other? I'm getting ready to order a booster for X. It will be his full time seat. My instinct is to go with the Monterey, but is there any reason to chose the Monarch over the Monterey?

    Re: Monarch vs Monterey

    Here is a post from earlier this year asking about the two different seats:

    I think it sounds like the Monterey is more preferred due to the taller belt guide, wider seat base and longer seat depth, and it has the adjustable wings.

    I haven't used either. The Monterey is very well liked and can be used longer, but the Monarch should be going on clearance very soon and you could get an awesome deal. So, I was basically no help at all.
