Dh and I have a large vehicle that will fit our entire family but it guzzles gas and often times one of us will run errands in our smaller Honda Civic but wish to take one or two of our children along for the ride for bonding and to give the other parent a break from having them all. So we are looking for two or three car seats that are not as pricey as our "everyday" Radians (which just practically we just don't have time or energy to be un and re-installing the Radians between cars).
I love that our Radians have the rf tether. But in the price-range I'm hoping to stay in there are no seats that will have a rear-tether AND an easy-adjust harness so we can easily take either of our children of different sizes. (1yo, 2yo, 3yo)
I've sort of tried to narrow it down and I think the Evenflow Triumph may be an option (though a bit big, would make it so we could never fit 3 across) with the newer easy-adjust harness.
I had also seen an Air Protect on clearance for similar price and love the head/neck protection there but it seems to me that the rest of the seat lacks safety features (energy-absorbing foam, sturdy seat structure). ???
I also had seen a Evenflow seat similar to (same body, I think) as the Triumph (Momentum 65 DLX) but has "E3" foam to help with side-impact forces. I'm leaning towards this seat, being about the same price as the other two.
Anything else in the same price range, good protection, easy harness adjust (no re-threading) that is slimmer than the Triumph?
