  • Wow that sounds like seat that I want for me not the kid. We have a Radian 65 by sunshine kids. It exceeds both European and US standards. The seat weighs in at like 28 lbs which is still more than my kid.

  • We have the graco Nautalus for my 4 year old and got it for him when he was 2. I really like it.

  • Try the MyRide 65 it is very reclined, has 2 cup holds built in and nice side impact protection.

  • I have a safety 1st. It comes with the cupholder and soft side impact. It will recline if you need the seat to be facing backwards. My kids love their seats. I got mine at babies-r-us. They will let you try the seat in your car to see if it fits ok and make sure you like it before you buy it.

  • Graco has some nice ones.

  • The Nautilus is NOT a convertible seat.

    I recommend the Graco MyRide 65, the Complete Air 65, and The First Years True Fit for convertible seats.
