Measurement on the Harmony Youth Booster Seat?

Does anyone have one of these you could measure the space between the armrests? The site says the inside measurement is 11" but I think that is the measurement at the seat, not up at the armrests which angle out.

DS will be 8 in February and is currently in a high back TurboBooster, but he is busting out of it and the armrests are tight at this hips. He still needs something for height and this seat looks like it may be roomier.

Any other suggestions for a wider booster?

TIA!

The Harmony Olympian is nice and wide for older booster riders.

Thanks! The width on the Olympian is 12" on the site. I'm assuming that's the measurement at the seat. Do you happen to know what the measurement is at the armrests?

His TurboBooster is 12" at the armrests and it is tight.

We have a Harmony Cruz(I believe) it is from Target because DD1 who is near 11 but only 52" tall was uncomfortable in her Amp. She says it is 150% better.

It is in DH car and he is due any moment and I will measure the widest part at the top of the arm rest for you.

Ok, it is 11" where the arms meet the seat and 15" at the widest part. DD says having the arm rests that angle out made a huge difference for fitting her behind in there.

Awesome, thanks! I'll check it out next time I'm at Target!

Here is the info on the Olympian: http://www.car-seat.org/showthread.php?t=150989

It appears that the widest internal measurement is 18". A friend of mine had one for her 9 year old and he really liked it.
