<p>I have a Britax MA that is set to expire next May.  I am trying to make a decision on what seat to get next.  Both my twins, almost 2, are still rear facing and I would like to keep them rf as long as I can.  My 30lb ds is rf in a Radian and it rf till 35lb.  My other ds is 28lbs and is in the MA and it rf till 33lbs. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am looking at the MyRide and the Boulevard.  I know that the seat height on the Boulevard has been shortened a bit with the brand new ones but can't find a measurement for the MyRide.  My dh is 6ft tall and my kids are taking after him with height.  I am not sure how tall they are, but I am guessing they are in 75%  for height.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If the MyRide would work, I would definitely go for that one and save money!  My dh would be so happy!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any help me?</p>
<p><br>
Thanks!</p>

<p>The new Boulevard's shell isn't any taller than the MyRide, so if it's just between those two, and you want to rearface the longest, I would go with the MyRide.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There are other seats that rearface to 40 lbs, like the Safety 1st Complete Air, the Evenflo Triumph 65, the Evenflo Momentum, and of course the newer Radians rf to 40 lbs (for the Radian 65SL) or 45 lbs (Radian 80SL or Radian XTSL). You already know how they fit in a Radian as you have one, and the rest can all be found at Babies r Us if you'd like to try your lo's in the seats before you purchase.</p>

<p>If you want to rf as long as possible with a comprable price to the MR, then I would do a Complete Air.  But I wouldn't pay for a Blvd when a CA will last you longer for less and the MR will last just as long for less.</p>

<p>Yes, the new BLVD rf to 40. What I mean is since the MyRide and the boulevard both rf to 40 lbs, and the Boulevard shell isn't any taller (may be a touch shorter) than the MyRide, I would chose the MyRide over the BLVD. My 3.5 yo dd has more room above her head in the Myride than the BLVD.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And yes, I would go see the Complete Air in person and try your kids in it before making a decision on it :)<br><br>

Thanks for you input!  My dh will be happy that I am pretty close to no longer looking at the Britax and saving money!!  BRU has a MyRide for $119 right now which pretty much $200 cheaper than the BLVD.  BRU has both the MyRide and the Complete Air.  I will have to take whichever twin that will be using that seat and see which one fits him best.</p>
