First deal posted so be gentle please!

Was reading another thread on car seats and thought this seat was worth posting at this bargain price.
It normally retails at £40. I think Boots had a half price offer recently which took the price down to around £27.

This one beats that!

Find it at http://www.argos.co.uk

Item no 3751370 if the link doesnt work.

Checked a few stores near me and they have stock.Sadly its out of stock for Home Delivery

Great little seat that should last from 4 to 11 years. We have two of these one in each car to saving moving them around.

Some details

Hi-Liner child car seat features a lightweight booster and backrest plus a handy pull-out drink holder tray.

Group 2,3.

Weight range from 15 to 36kg.

Suitable for ages 4 to 11 years.

Forward facing.

Adjustable backrest for greater vehicle compatibility.

Adjustable head support allows the seat to grow with the child.

Pull out drink holder and snack tray for refreshments.

Deep, padded side wings and headrest give optimum side impact protection.

Washable cover.

Approved to ECE R44 03.

Scored well in Which 71% and one was one of the best buys. Here is what they have to say about it.
This is a forward facing booster with back rest that uses the three-point vehicle belt to restrain the seat and the child. It is designed for children aged about four to 12 (15-36kg).

It is very easy to use, offers very good leg support and excellent padding. While the idea of having one seat for several weight categories is often seen as a compromise, this one does a good job of bridging the gap. Crash ratings are pretty good, with low loads imparted to the child in both front and side crashes. The Hi-Liner has a very high back, which can foul on the cars head restraints. Stability of the seat can be improved on some cars by turning or removing the vehicle headrest, to allow the high backrest to sit more squarely onto the seat back.

These are great seats (got mine when they were on offer at Boots), the kids say they are comfy, the adjustable headrest supports their heads when they fall asleep, very easy to move between cars. Recommended.

From Which report

Britax Hi-Liner

Best Buy

Deano - I saw this which report and suspect they mixed the Britax Hi-liner with the Britax 2/3 evolva ultra. The Evolva got a lower rating than the Evolva isofix (which is virtually the same seat and got the highest rating). The picture for the evolva ultra looked liked the hi-liner so the results given for the hi-liner may actually be for the Ultra (and vice versa) - I'm not convinced they quoted the results correctly....

Even so I think these were rated as good seats and its a great price.

Wow what a brilliant price. i bought this for my DD in my mums car and really like it - need one for DH's car so have ordered one to pick up tomorrow - thanks OP
:thumbsup:
#9
Thanks! Can't go wrong at this price really.
#10
Good price but I suspect gari189 is correct.
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]These seats have a rather fragile feel to them and don't appear as well finished as others but obviously exceed the safety standards.[/SIZE]
#11
the hi-liner has been renamed the evolva 23. this is probably where the confusion stems from. the hi-liner did score well last year aswell,(came 2nd i think) and the results last year were definately for the britax hi-liner and not the evolva.
i have this seat along with the maxi-cosi rodi and it is just as well made,not as much fabric,but well made and safe. it's definately not fragile and is quite a sturdy seat.

Well I don't know what reports you are looking at but the 2006 and 2007 reports quite clearly show the picture for the Hi-liner is a Hi-Liner in both reports .The picture for the Evolva 2-3 (new name for the Hi-liner) is in fact the Evolva 2-3 Ultra but the results are for the Evolva 2-3 seat , hence why the scores are the same as the Hi-Liner as they are the same seat . Also seat is extremely sturdy , I have 2 of the Hi-Liners and 2 Maxi Cosi Rodi XP . I am very happy to put my 7 yr old in any of these seats for my school run which is 130 miles a day , 125 miles of which is on the A2/M2 motorway .

Edited to add: Just realised I have another Rodi XP that I bought the other week !

Hi Liner is half the weight of the Evolva 2-3/Ultra. It weighs in at a mere 3kg compared to the Evolva 2-3/Ultra at 6kg.

If this seat has any faults one of the problems of its lightness is that if your driving is a bit erratic you will find the seat moving in the back!

The Which test results have not been mixed up for these seats.

Having just looked at the Britax website I suspect the reason these are so cheap now is that the Evolva is replacing them.

Also found that it might be cheaper buying another seat if your child is car sick a lot as this company (which is one of the official Britax retailer) want to charge £32.45 for a replacement seat cover :?

The Evolva 2-3 Ultra is a totally different seat to the Hi-Liner/Evolva 2-3 so of course there is going to be a weight difference as the Evolva 2-3 Ultra has more features to it . The Hi-Liner/Evolva 2-3 weighs nearly 5 kgs and never has it once moved about in my car and believe me I have had to stop rather sharpish and swerve on occasions due to idiots driving on the motorway ! :x

The covers are also easily removed for cleaning too and dry in next to no time on the radiator . Much easier than the Rodi XP ! Now that is a complete git to get back on :)

The Evolva 2-3 is the new name for the Hi-Liner and the Evolva 2-3 Ultra is a completely new and different seat . They (Hi-Liner) are reduced everywhere and have been for the last year .

The results for the Hi-Liner and Evolva 2-3 are scores of 71% for both seats and are a recommended Best Buy and the Evolva 2-3 Ultra scored 74% and again is a recommended Best Buy seat so there isn't really much in the seats apart from the Ultra is slightly heavier and has a breathable fabric amongst some other features and also has arm rests as well .

I agree with all you say except the above.

In my post above I was highlighting that the Hi-Liner only weighs 3kg. Both the Evolva 2-3 and Ultra weigh 6kg.

The Hi-Liner is not the same seat as the Evolva 2-3 and therefore its not just a new name. Its a new seat :thumbsup:

Hi ,

I thought we should clear this up once and for all . I have just come off the phone to Britax who have said the following : The Evolva 2-3 IS essentially the Hi-Liner seat re-named apart from 2 tiny tweaks to it , 1. Slightly more padded seat and 2. Slightly more compacted head area . The Hi-Liner weighs in at just over 4 Kgs and the Evolva 2-3 weighs in a 4.3 kgs . My scales must have been slightly out when I weighed the seat last night , sorry !

The Evolva 2-3 Ultra is a totally different seat altogether weighing in at 6.69 Kgs with totally different features to it .

As I said , to clarify once again and with Britax in agreement with me , the Hi-Liner and the Evolva 2-3 are essentially the same seat with the exact same safety features and has just been renamed and tweaked a tiny bit . Hope this helps everyone .

Hi,

Anyone want a reservation number for 1 of these in Watford (Charter Place)?

It's reserved until the end of today.

Just thought I'd share my experience...

I ordered and collected one of these today but I'm not impressed

Yes the price is a bargain but in the long run that's beside the point

I don't like the description "lightweight booster and backrest". That's misleading and implies they could seperate to have a stand alone booster as meany of these type of seats do, but the high-liner doesn't seperate
Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think an older child, say 7+, would want to be sat in a seat with a back on it and be cradled around the head as this seat did my 4 yr old

Following on from this, my nearly 8 yr old has a booster seat, a Graco which I'm sure is well known - with the armrests and pull out drink/snack trays. Well, on long journeys he's either watching a film, reading a book or playing with his gameboy. The latter 2 he can do comfortably with his elbows resting on the armrests. The Hi-liner has no armrests so I think my 4 yr old would find that uncomfortable and a problem in time

My 4 yr old is average going on slightly taller than average for his age and this seat is too big for him. With the head rest at the lowest, the belt is across his neck

We walk to a lot of places and mostly do longer trips in the car so I need a seat that suits that. The lack of seperate booster for an older child and the lack of armrests has made me decide to return my Hi-liner

HTH

Thanks to the OP for this - managed to grab one from Argos Maidenhead for my ever growing lad.

If you want the newer version (Evolva 2 3 )which is alot more comfy and has loads more padding you can get it from Empire Stores for £45 using a £15 voucher

If its a Graco Junior - "Which" believe they should be withdrawn from sale for safety reasons. We had them and they are practical but we changed them after reading some information on the Which site....

We looked at the Gracos on Saturday, they say side impact protection on them but looking at them they are very poor, when you look at the Britax you can see it offers way better protection around the head as the headrest is deeper and more padded , same around the sides as well.

These seats are horrible!! The hi-liners I mean, that is why they are now so cheap. The padding is so thin and the seat so hard, and the slanted seat means the child is really uncomfortable. My daughter's were bought these full price from Halford's, they are exactly the same as the one's from Argos (same colour ) they are aged 3, 5 and 6 and they all complained like fury for the year I subjected them to them. My eldest complained she couldn't move her head, and the head rest was so hard it hurt. (She broke the polystyrene in protest! Don't buy! Get your poor kids a comfy safe car seat, with a comfy headrest (that is supportive) they spend long enough in them.:thumbsup:
#26
Yes the old ones are rubbish (Hi Liner) but the new ones are alot more padded (Evolva 2 3), the seats are not slanted as they have to rest on your car seat so your cars seats must be slanted or they were not fitted correctly

As for the headrest its designed like that for a reason, to protect in a side inpact crash, i would rather my child be in a safe seat with a headrest that protects the head than a bad seat that dosent protect the head.

You can see by the Which reports the Evolva scores the best 74% or 77% in Isofit form http://users.aol.com/dco634/Seat%20Report%202007.pdf

I am well aware of the safety issues and all my children ride in appropriate car seats thankyou! But the old hi-liners are rubbish and the bit around the head, is 'very safe' but very uncomfortable. The new versions have better padding, and others on the market are more comfortable too. My point was, the grandparents bought 3 off our 5 kids (Youngest still in Britax Eclipse si) a Hi-liner for full price. They were used on individual seats, in a people carrier (not a bench seat) the seats have a natural tailored slant at the front (smooth slope if you prefer) which (compared to others on the market) was not comfortable for our children. The padding was insufficient and the seat hard and uncomfortable. Following my reading of the which? report, we had gone for these, over the Graco junior style. As they were safe, I did use them, as naturally I wanted my kids to be safe. Had I not replaced them before the Evolva had really hit the shelves, I would have gone for this as they look really good and comfy.
We however went for 2 Cybex solution+(with a supportive headrest that reclines) and a Maxi-cosi Rodi, which we felt to be adequate.

A bit alarming though that the child's ethnicity changed just by swapping car seats...what on earth did his mother have to say?!!!
