Re: What's the best convertible carseat besides Britax?

I would recommend against the comfortsport as well. Super low top slots, so low that my 20mo old has already outgrown the seat. Plus it has a low RFing limit (30lbs) and only a 40lb FFing limit.

The FPSVD is also a good choice.

I love our Radians! You can get the Radian65 for around $160.
It's as highly rated for safety as Britax and Recaro, plus it is not as humongous, you can fit 3 across most back seats. And I sat in the top brands to test (yes I have a small bum) and it had the cushiest seat

Re: What's the best convertible carseat besides Britax?

We love our Sunshine Kids Radian 65 & my nephew loves his Radian 80. I also love the Evenflo Triumph Advance. And Evie rides RF in her Cosco Scenera & it'll become her primary seat when she hits the 33 pound RF limit of her Marathon so she can have those 2 extra RF pounds.

Be aware that the Fisher Price Safe Voyage Deluxe has been discontinued, so any seat that you buy now is an older model, so that means it has less life left in it. I have heard people getting them from Baby Depot (Burlington Coat Factory) for around $60!

{please pardon any typos...my head meds screw me up}

I will throw in my vote for the Evenflo Triumph Advance. It's so plush and nice, even the lower end models. It's a deal at $130-170, especially because it harnesses to 50lbs.
I also like the Fisher Price mentioned above. Great deal for that one, too!

If you really want a budget seat, the Cosco Scenera is great and only $40-50!!
