Graco Affix Youth Booster Seat with Latch System, Atomic

The Graco Affix is a highback booster car seat that comes with lower LATCH anchor straps to help keep the seat secure when no one is riding in it. It’s been crash tested to meet or exceed US standard FMVSS 213.

A unique front-adjustment strap makes it easy to tighten the booster LATCH straps. This seat also converts into a backless booster. It’s very similar to the TurboBooster LX, which we will also discuss in this review.

Read why the 2019 Clek Oobr High Back Booster gets a high review overall

Clek Oobr High Back Booster

With even a quick glance, it’s pretty obvious there’s something different about the Clek Oobr High Back Booster Car Seat compared to other boosters. Clek has taken a smart design approach that mimics features of a regular seat in a vehicle. It also added some valuable features to ensure your child enjoys a safe and comfortable ride.

In designing this convertible booster seat, Clek really gave some thought as to what parents want in a booster seat and what would keep kids comfortable, especially on long rides. Here are some things that stand out:

  • A removable back, so it goes from high back to backless. This means parents save money because it accommodate their child longer.
  • A headrest that adjusts like those in your own vehicle. That makes it easier for parents to use.
  • A wide seat that provides comfort as your child grows.
  • The seat back reclines, which is always a plus on long rides.

These well-thought-out features complement the overall design of the seat.

Read our 2019 detailed review of the Evenflo Maestro combination harness-to-seat belt booster car seat to see if it’s the right choice for your family.

Evenflo Maestro Booster Car Seat Wesley

For a combination booster seat, the Evenflo Maestro isn’t particularly glamorous, but it has a lot of nice features that make it a real contender in the booster seat market. It comes in four color combinations – Wesley (gray/red), Taylor (gray/pink), Easley (dark gray/light gray block pattern) and Thunder (gray/bright blue).

It’s designed to hold your child from the time they’ve grown out of their rear-facing seat until they’re ready to ride without a safety seat. You should be able to get quite a few years out of it. However, the height limits aren’t as generous as they could be.

Compared to similar seats from other brands, the Evenflo Maestro is very budget-friendly at around $70. It comes with a 90-Day limited warranty from date of purchase and has a 6-year expiration date.

The Graco Atlas 65 2-in-1 harness booster car seat, model number 1946242, is a combination forward-facing car seat with a built-in 5-point harness system plus a high back booster seat.

It’s a well-built, versatile car seat that easily transfers from one vehicle to another and is FAA approved for airplanes. It also can be used for RV and bus travel. Kids even love it for the deep cup holders on each side.

Is the Britax Pinnacle G1.1 Harness-2-Booster seat a good choice for your child? Find out in our 2019 review

Britax Pinnacle ClickTight G1.1 Harness-2-Booster Car Seat, Mosaic

The Britax Pinnacle G1.1 is one of the top multitasker players on the booster seat team. It’s actually a combo forward-facing harness seat and booster seat. With the highest weight and height limits of any other booster on the market, it should be able to fulfill its roll from the time your child is too big for rear-facing and until he no longer needs a booster.

The Pinnacle is the top tier of a triad of similar booster seats from Britax, including the Pioneer and the Frontier. Premium seats like the Pinnacle come with a premium price, but from the sturdy construction, excellent side impact protection and easy installation, it’s most likely a great investment.
