Set to be released this July, US only. It's just like the Nautilus, but more amped up. 70 pound harness limit, 120 pound booster limit, no rethread harness. $199-219

Can't wait to hear if it has taller harness slots than the Nautilus or if they're the same.

Me too! The orange and green are nice! And black plastic instead of gray!

I don't think it's a bad height at all. I mean, really, it's going to get an average sized child to 5-6 years old, when they're completely safe to go into a booster. For the majority of children, they don't need a higher harness height.

I can see the disappointment for those who have bigger children, with longer torsos, or children who need to remain harnessed longer for other reasons, though. But for the price point that the Argos 70 will be, you can get a Frontier 85 for not much more, sometimes less (than the Argos 70 Elite).

This exactly. I was really hoping it would have a higher harness height so they would have something else other than the Frontier for larger kids. We have a Nauti and I wouldn't be willing to pay that much more for the no rethread and 5 extra pounds.

I LOVE that Green one! I'll pay the extra for just the harness. I've been spoiled by my CAs.
