any safer option for us?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
DS is 7, tall, 80lbs. Currently in a Vivo. Is there any safer option available? Thanks!

If you really want to move back to a five point harness, you could look into the Britax Frontier 90 or Pinacle 90, but assuming your DS has good belt fit and the maturity to sit properly in the Recaro Vivo, I wouldn't see any reason to switch seats.

There is no evidence that a 5-point harness seat is safer than a properly fitting booster for a child of that age.  There are arguments both ways for safety (some think a booster is safer because it gives more and so has less chances of head excursion; others the harness because it provides more security).  Since you can't rear-face, your son is already perfectly safe.
