What's your favorite Convertible car seat?

Just curious. We will probably have to purchase one next year late winter/early spring depending on how fast dd grows. She's 9.5 months now and only 16 pounds/just under 27 inches so we have time. Just looking now. We want to rf as long as possible so want a seat with higher weight/height limits.

I'm getting the maxi cosi pria for our little one on the way. We got to see the carseat in person and were amazed at how comfortable it felt. There was a goo amount of padding on the seat (way more than others including britax, graco etc...). It's a seat I would want to sit in I don't have personal experience with it though.

I have a Britax Marathon 70. I really like it if we have another baby I will just buy another one of these and an infant insert.

Favorite is TrueFit Premier. Its really wide, so it fits the 3-4 year old set well, and is super tall. My kids are skinny, and DD rf'd in it til she was 4. There is lots of leg room.

My favorite is the radian...I like that it is a nice low profile so it is easier to load without bonking heads. BUT I LOVE the graco size4me too! Awesome seat! Very, very tall for rfing and 40lb weight limit rfing.

Love my radian!

Easy to buckle. Good looking. Skinny and if you use the angle adjuster it fits well in any car

Mine, too. If your kiddo will make it to 3 or 4 RF in it, it's my top rec. My chunky DS made it to 3, easy, and would have made it longer if I had been willing to weigh him every few days.

I've been hearing really awesome things about the Graco Size4Me. If it weren't for the stupid little buckle, I might be tempted to get one to try.
