Vent Bought a Defender last night

I really want to like it but what is up with the uber short crotch buckle? Ds3 is 42ish lbs and bigger for his age but not huge and he was complaining about it. And honestly, I would totally switch it out for another buckle I have but it's the funky H design so I imagine it's going to be a major pita to do.

Other than that, for $100 it's great. It's super plush with lots of foam and easy IMMI buckles. The belt path is wide and smooth and I had no problems installing while wearing a puffy coat and mittens.
