    Harnessed till 8 for sure. I love my evolve. Though I guess it depends on your child. Without the new type G seats my giant 3yo would have needed to go to a booster with a seatbelt. I don't want a 3yo in a seatbelt. Now she's 4 and even more giant and the seat will last for ages. I doubt we will make 8, even though the height markers are generous, but if we make 6 I'm happy.

    My 6yo is in a booster with a seatbelt, he could never do up the harness by himself, so I find this better, especially for school pick up, where you're not really meant to get out of the car, he can just jump in and put his seatbelt on. But it scares me that on a long drive he sometimes will take the seatbelt strap off his shoulder. I think I've told him off enough times now that he won't.
    My 4yo is in a booster with a harness (SNS Maxi-rider I think it is) but I think in hers you can remove the harness and use a seatbelt. Won't be doing this until I have to though, probably when she starts school.

    Harness till 8 is safer. And if you have 3 in the back like me it's easier to do up than reaching between seats to do up buckles all the time.

    My oldest is 4, & has a convertible booster - in a harness for now, & will change to a seat belt when she reaches the height marker. I am hoping to keep her in the harness as long as possible, it's safer & SO much easier to do up a harbess rather than reach in between with 3 car seats in the back.
