    Highest weight limit 5 point harness?

    What seat has the highest weight limit of a 5 point harness(forward facing)? Can you give me the top 5 or so with the highest weight limits? I saw this video tonight and wanted to make sure my daughters next seat has the highest 5 point harness weigh limit. Here is the video (get your tissues ready)

    Top harnessed seat is the Regent. $270, harnesses to 80 pounds, forward facing only (it's the seat Kyle's sister got).

    Next top weights are 65 pounds. This includes the Britax Marathon/Decathalon/Boulevard (all about the same size, weight, and price, in the $250-$300 range, just each has different features), and the Sunshine Kids Radian ($180). These all RF to 33 pounds and FF to 65. The Radian has installation issues in some cars.

    The Apex 65 is the only other one to round out this short list. It's a forward facing combination seat that harnesses to 65 pounds and then is a booster to 100. It's $100 or so. It requires high headrests behind it.

    Regent harnessesto 80 lbs. There are special needs seats that harness to 100+ but they are rather expensive, starting at $500 or so.

    The new Radian goes to 80# too, but it's more than the Regent.
