It is a very good seat. The plus is its a higher weight harness seat. It becomes a high back then a no back booster. Also this would be the last seat you would need to buy for your 4 year old.Its easy to install another plus. The negative some find it can be snug with the crouch strap, also some kids heads will fall forward when sleeping and it's kind of a heavy seat. Dawn

Thank you, Dawn.

Now to convince my Dh that a new seat is needed for ODS.

I eased my DH's fears about having to eventually get new seats for our DS with the "we can hand it down" speech. That and for us it will be hopefully close to 3 years since baby #2 isn't due until August :)

That's my plan, but since this "new" seat is going to last until he is out of car seats/boosters, in reality, it probably won't be handed down to YDS.

Yeah, I have the same hope for when I either get a Nautilus myself or possibly a Britax Frontier 85. I'm floating between the 2 because my DS has ran 90-95% for his height and weight all his life, so I may need the extra 2" of harness height in the Britax to keep him harnessed until 6ish like I would like to. But if he is showing himself to be more mature when we have to get him a new seat, I may go with the Nautilus. Its a decision I'll make when we get there :)

It's nice to know you loved the seat.
