Brill car seat, I have the original advansafix for my son and you can use 5 point harness until 25kg rather then the usual 18kg! Lasts from approx 9 month old until 12 years old! Looks really comfy and lots of safety features.

Great price though I certainly wouldn't put a 9 month old in a forward facing car seat. My 2 yo is still using a besafe rear facing though I need to look for another rear facing as the izi is getting a touch small.
rearfacing.co.uk if you are interested in the safety of your child.

£168 for a forward facing seat seems a bit much. If you have that much to spend then I would buy an extended rear facing seat, certainly if your child is only at the 9months - 4yrs stage.

Yes but this seat saves you having to buy a high back booster and then a normal booster! It lasts from 9 months of age right through until they don't need a car seat! It's good value for money when you put it that way and the extra safety features make it well worth it.

Plus extended rear facing car seats start about the £300 mark for a decent one and you also need the base with most of them. This is good for older toddlers that are forward facing but you've still got the safety of a 5 point harness. My 3 year old son is 14kg and can stay fastened in with a 5 point harness until he's 25kg!

It is more expensive because the integrated HARNESS CAN BE USED TO 25KG not just 18kg like all the others. Though it must be installed with both iso-fix and the seat belt due to the higher weight capacity.
Saw it in toys r us last week there is no way a 12 year old will fit in it the head height adjuster doesn't go anywhere near as high as the britax adventurer that was sitting beside it on the shelf.

You just need to be aware that the harness on this seat doesn't go especially high - very few children will actually be able to stay harnessed in this seat until they weigh 25kgs because the harness won't go high enough to accommodate them. And there is also a very strict fitting list for this seat, your car must have ISOFIX with a top tether and be on the Britax fitting list.

Even without the harness, it has a new fitting called secure guard which when used with a 3 point seat belt is proven to be safer as it holds the belt in place. My son is on the higher end of the height chart and still has plenty of space left with the harness, think it just depends on the child

You have not shopped around. I got both my erf seats for £195 and they both last to 25kg, both 5 point harness.

Do remember it is recommended you replace a carseat after 5 years worth of use.....so you might not actually really get about 12 years worth out of it.
Britax seats do not have an expiry date. They confirmed to me that you can continue to use their seats indefinitely as long as it still conforms to current regulations and has not been in an accident

there are actually very few ERF seats that require a separate base and quite a few are well under the £300 mark.

on a separate note, do you know if it's actually safer for a 18kg+ child (age 4/5+) to remain harnessed versus moving to a high backed booster? ... I can't find a definitive answer :-(
part of me thinks 5 point harness = extra restraint so must be safer, but I'm also thinking that once a child weighs that much are they not better with a 3 point seat belt?

obviously an exception would be a chunky 2 year old that hits the weight limits of their group 1 seat but obviously should not be put into a hbb. also, in the event of a rollover crash 5 point harness would be advantageous.
I spent a long time looking for an ERF seat for my daughter who is now 3 and a half. We got the Britax Dualfix and loved it. However, she is very tall and needs a bigger seat not. Unfortunately I can't seem to find and ERF seat that goes much beyond its limit- any ideas? This seems to be a safe seat all be it forward facing

Regardless of what seat is better...front facing or rear facing, I posted this because it's a bargain at more then £100 of the RRP! I thought this site was for hot deals, not debates!

I have the first advansafix for my tall 3 year old son and there's still plenty of adjustment left on the head restraint and I like the fact there's extra protection around the head, this new seat also offers better protection when using a 3 point seat belt, and extra protection in the event of a side on collision. Iv just ordered it for my 1 year old daughter, wanted to go ERF but she hates it!
Thanks lancslass28 & laurieleigh. I've just ordered this

Mine arrived today after ordering it Saturday night! Standard free delivery so impressed with that! Really good quality seat, easy enough to fit and doesn't move at all once in! Feels heavier and more sturdier then the original advansafix I have, daughter looks really comfy and loves her new seat
I've just bought the joie every stage using the code at Halfords taking it from £200 to £160 delivered which is an excellent price because it is an erf seat and goes up to 12 years meaning we never have to buy another car seat! xx
