I read that link and then followed the comments to a facebook page "Rear Facing - The way forward" and I was wondering if anyone knows the (generalized) height limits on Sweedish seets. In the FB pics, these kids heads' are sticking out over the top of the seat. I'm assuming it's correct, just wondering about it.

Swedish seats use tethers AND a foot prop or bracing for RF. Thus, they won't have the same downward rotation as a NA seat so child's head can be over top of seat. Not the same worry of the child ramping up and hitting head on seat/vehicle interior in front of them.

My husband is drooling over the soccer booster seat! This man who knows NOTHING about seats, and can't even install one, wants to call one of his aunts or cousins in Salzburg, Austria and see if they will go buy one and ship it to us.

The Swedish seats are also installed much more upright for 9m+ kiddos. So they are travelling straight back into the shell instead if ramping up and out.
NA limits (1 inch rule, plus numerical heights) might also be a bit conservative than needed.
