Hi. Is there anything out there similar to the Britax Husky but not as huge? I'm looking for a 5 point for my 29 lb, 39" son who turns 3 in Feb 2003. I love my Roundabout, so am sorry to see it go. I hesitate to get the Husky only because I can't see him in a 5 point harness for the next 4 years, and would like to buy one final carseat. I checked out the Graco Platinum, but my experience with Graco is that the straps twist. And, it looks like he'll outgrow the 5 point harness on that model soon anyway. Any ideas? Thanks.

Check all of the combination booster models. The Century NextStep series, the Evenflo Express, Comet, Chase and Apollo, the Cosco Summit and others are all options. I never had a strap twisting problem with my NextStep DX, and the height limits are among the better models. The Husky is an option, and you could always switch to an inexpensive backless booster in a couple years if you wish.
