    Default SNS Maxi Rider Easy Adjust AHR VS Baby Love Ezy Combo......OR...???

    So, DS is about to out-grow his Meridian! His shoulders are just microscopically below the shoulder height marker, so im looking at something to replace it.

    After looking at CREP, Ive come up with the Maxi rider Ezy Adjust AHR OR the Baby Love Ezy Combo. Money isnt an issue when it comes to safety, convenience and comfort.

    Im leaning towards the Maxi Rider purely because i love not having to pull our Meridian out to adjust the strap height! However...I want to keep him harnessed as long as possible... Soooo....

    Which seat has the highest possible shoulder height for harnessed use?

    And which has the higher height marking for regular booster non-harnessed use? This isnt quite as important to me as the harnessed height, but while im investigating, i may as well find out.

    Seat width isn't a problem. He is an only child. So... Help me out!! please!

    The Maxi Rider Easy Adjust has higher markers than the BLEC.

    The Comfi Caprice is a really really good option too. Same markers as the MREA, scored the sake rating on CREP if that matters to you and are cheaper and far prettier. And no annoying anti sub clip as it's a built In design.

    I'd head to a baby store and sit your son in a MREA and a Comfi Caprice and see which he prefers, wouldn't worry about the BLEC.

    For a dedicated booster the Hi Liner and Encore 10 are the highest.

    Callmedragon is spot on. The maxi rider easy adjust and the infa secure convertible boosters have the highest harnessing ability on the market. The infa seats used to have the 3 markers spaced evenly but they've just moved the middle one to be higher to the top so make sure you look at that when trying them. The only other thing is that there tends to be more shoulder room in the mrea.

    Not one of the seats that you were asking about but I recently looked into both seats you asked about and the maxi cosi Goliath which is the one I purchased it had higher markers for the in built harness my son was at the marker to convert to booster in the other 2 but still had roughly an inch before reaching that marker in the maxi cosi goliath

    Thanks for the replies ladies!! Ill check out the infa secure and maxi cosi seats too! And forget about the BLEC!!

    Honestly we're actually after 2! 1 for both DF and I! I Showed him some last night and he loves the look of the Comfi Caprice, which i then realised had the same CREP rating!

    I'm limited to what i can just try, which is why ive turned to BH To ask to help out with the decision making. We live in the middle of nowhere, the closest place i know that would have all of the seats to try at once would be baby bunting or pram warehouse. They are both a 3hr drive away!

    When we brought our meridian, it was $100 cheaper to have it shipped to us than buy local! (On sale, with $5 postage)

    The Goliath has lower markers than the MREA and Comfi so something to keep in mind.

    The lowest line in the Goliath is lower than the maxi rider yes, I previously had the maxi rider easy adjust and I got a measuring tape out to measure from the turn to booster seat line to where the child sits it was 42.5cm vs the Goliath which is 47cm its a huge difference and as I said in my earlier post my then 2yr old was already at the line to turn into a booster for the MREA but now at 3yr is still just under the line for the Goliath

    That's not right at all, no convertible booster on the market has a marker of 47cm. The Infa convertible booster and the MREA are 45. The old Maxi Rider AHR was 40cm, is that what you had? The Maxi Cosi Goliath/Mothers Choice Nobel/Safety 1st Custodian is 40cm, it's not possible to be higher as that's the last shoulder slot. My son is 19mo and already halfway between the entry and change to booster line in the Nobel.
