|We have the Britax Boulevards for our twins and absolutely LOVE them. By guys are about 30 lbs. each and about 36" at 2-and-a-half. They are still rear-facing, and are nowhere close to outgrowing the boulevards. The Boulevard is the same size as the Marathon (and has the same limits), but has a couple of added features. . . side-impact protection "wings," which make excellent head rests, and infinitely adjustable shoulder-strap height. This means that not only do you not have to rethread the straps ever, but you are also able to make your car seat totally custom fit your kid on any day. The knob is very easy to turn.|

Granted, she is long in the torso and short-legged (her shirt size is like 3 sizes higher than her pants size :LOL ). But, I do think Britax may be overly optomistic in their 65lb weight limit. So, if the height limits are the same for the Boulevard, my dd1 would not fit in it.
