We currently have a Cosco booster, Eddie Bauer High Back, and a Britax Roundabout.

Those Radians sound nice - anyone know where they are made?
We have 2 kids + babysitting another and no plans (yet) to have more, so we're holding on to our Outback for as long as pos...

Radians are made by Sunshine Kids Juvenile Products. It took me a while to find their site...

Yep, I doubled checked. Ours is only on the middle seat. I am not sure if it has anything to do with the seats being able to fold flat into the floor. I was so disappointed, because I was hoping to use tethers w/ the 2 older kids. And no latch back there at all. Only the 2 captain's chairs in the middle row have both latch & tether anchors.

I am pretty sure with the Regent you have to tether after a certain weight (50 lbs, I think), and we don't have tether anchors on our 3rd row seat, so that seat wouldn't work for us any longer than the Radian would. We love our Radian and my almost 6 year old still has plenty of room (height wise) to grow.

Tether anchors can usually be installed, just so everyone knows.

The Radian top slots are about an inch taller than the 65 lb weight limit Britaxes. However, the Regent's are about 3" taller.

I'm impressed any bench seat can hold a Regent and two MAs. That must be one WIDE seat!

We have a Spectra and I don't think I could get another in there, let alone have it be safe. One of the major reasons I am electing to NOT have another for awhile at least.

I think 3 Radians would fit on about any bench seat. I'm amazed how narrow they are.
