BB Rating
What's This?


A EXCELLENT-our top pick!
B GOOD-above average quality, prices, and creativity.
C FAIR-could stand some improvement.
D POOR-yuck! Could stand some major improvement.

91nORh0qnmL._SL1500_Booster type: Combo

Weight: 20-100 lbs.; 22 to 40 lbs. with harness, belt-positioning booster for 40 to 110 lbs.

Price: $60.

IIHS rating: Best Bet.

NHTSA ease of use rating:
Booster mode: Three out of five stars.
Harness mode: Two out of five stars.

Comments: This older model combo seat comes in several versions: the DLX adds fancier padding (Comfort Touch), armrests and cup holders. For this, you pay an extra $20 over the LX.

The Evenflo Chase has a dated design and is showing its age. This seat earned just two out of five stars when used with the harness in a government ease of use evaluation—and since that is the key feature of this seat, we will not recommend it. The IIHS, on the other hand, gave this seat a Best Bet rating. Evenflo also makes another version of this seat called the Chase Select. 

Bottom line: there are better choices out there for a harnessed booster. While the new Chase LX addresses some of this seat’s previous drawbacks, we still do not recommend this seat.

Rating: F
