I have 2 of these and love them, just bought 2 more! Our 2nd kid will be outgrowing the carrier system soon, long before the older is ready for booster seat, so we'll have 2 of these in each vehicle. Was tempted by the rally model, but didn't want the cup holders. My older child loves to dump cereal from one container to another, so I would be vacuuming stale cereal from cupholders daily if i had them. This seat is sturdy, comfy, very cool shoulder strap adjustment system, and it looks quite snazzy as well.
