    My friend informed me this morning that the Diono Pacifica actually scored a “Not Recommended” in the booster seat stage, from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and the Diono Ranier scored a “Good Bet,” the lowest acceptable rating. http://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings/child-boosters

    Dude have you actually *used* the britax click boulevard, especially for frequent moving in and out of cars like you say it’s good for??? It’s murder. It’s super heavy, there is no way in heck it’s as slim width-wise as they say (my guess is they measured the base not the outside of the seat), and the instructions say it should still be tethered with the top latch even rear-facing, making it impossible to put rear facing with another car seat next to it (as they recommend tethering it to the latch slots behind the headrests). I seriously hate this seat compared to my easy-peasy Safety 1st.
