 My kids are 2 and 4. My dd is 36 lbs and 42 inches tall. My ds is 35 lbs and 34 inches tall. Right now they are both in a 5 point harness that goes to 40 lbs. I want to continue the 5 point harness as long as possible. What seat do you reccomend?

What is your budget?

Look at the Graco Nautilus and the Britax Frontier or the Frontier 85.  The Britax will get you longer in a 5 point but they are a bit pricier. 

All 3 of these seats will convert to a booster as well, so this will be the last seat you will need to purchase!

I have the radian80 and I love it. It is heavy and was a PITA to install but well worth it. I got it on sale for about $215

ETA: Since you kid is almost already at 40 lbs. I would go with the graco nautilis though because that could convert to a booster and it would run you about $140-160 depending on where you buy it. I wouldn't buy the radian knowing that DS wouldn't get much use out of it.

IF cost is not an issue - definitely go for the Frontier or the Frontier 85!  :)

If cost is not an issue then I would strongly suggest Britax Frontier 85

The Graco Nautilus.  We have one each for DS and SS.  DS is 3.5, 35 lbs, and about 38 inches tall.  SS is 4.5, 50 lbs, and a little over 40 inches tall.  Both are still harnessed.  It harness up to 65 lbs or about 52", then it becomes a HBB to 100 lbs and a backless booster up to 100 lbs.
