Okay, so you probably know by now I know a few things about car seats on the market. This one, the Britax Frontier 85 SICT, has some very great qualities. First of all, the Britax Frontier 85 is the tallest booster seat on the market. Some people who already own these have said at http://www.car-seat.org/forumdisplay.php?f=19 that the top of the seat can touch the ceiling of their van when it is extended to its highest setting. This is great for parents who would like to have head support for their older children.
This car seat also is a high weight limit seat meaning that it is a seat in which will harness children at higher weights surpassing the typical 40 pound weight limit car seat and usual very limited height limits. Usual car seats of the soon to be antiquated days of the 1990s and first decade of the 2000s , normally would not last a child in the 95% height and weight past 3 years old, sometimes 2 and 1/2 yrs old. If you wanted a higher weight and higher height limit car seat, you would first need to know they existed because you would not be able to find them at retail department stores. Then, if you knew they existed, you would look no where other than Britax.
I was not aware of Britax until about a year and a half ago. Before then, I would go to my local walmart or kmart and get what they had for my daughters who are now 10 yrs, 4 yrs. and 2 yrs. Britax was not there, Sunshine kids now Known as Diono wasn't there, and you just thought these car seats didn't exist. So my 40 pound 3 year old went into a booster with the auto belt and without a 5 point harness. It was common but now as higher weight and height limit car seats are marketed to stores such as Babies R US, awareness can grow, and you have a chance to win a car seat that can 5 point harness a child up to 85 pounds and practically harness a child of adult height. The Britax Frontier 85 then can act as a booster seat until 120 pounds with the car's auto belt. The Britax Frontier has comfortable armrests, something I think the Diono's Radian car seat is missing in my opinion. The Frontier also has built in cup holders for your child. You can visit britax.com to see what they have to offer if you are intrigued yet not ready yet for a forward facing only harnessed booster seat. They have many seats that can suit your child's needs if they are under 3 yrs old and could better be harnessed rear facing.
