Well I do love my Graco bucket. It worked really well for me. However, I've seen some Keyfits and they are really nice! I like the yellow, too. Is the yucky fabric on the Graco going to bother you a ton? Is it just the fact that you have always done Graco seats that is making you undecided? Or the price too? It's a hard decision, new car seats!
I have a Keyfit (I think the 22, the older one) from Lily that is still good. I love it, but then again, I've never tried another bucket seat. We've used the Keyfit for both Lily and Vi, and we're using it again for this baby.
Yes, the fabric is a major turnoff. It is the ONLY 30 in our BRU store. There is a 35, but I don't remember the fabric on it. I wish I could think of how to describe it. It is hard, slick like and has a texture. That is about all I can come up with. I think it would be REALLY hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

I have never owned a Keyfit. I love my Graco. I think Keyfits are narrower and they don't seem as good for big babies. I was with a friend (who has a son who is 2 weeks younger than Kieran) and she has a keyfit. Her son already *looks* too big for it (like it is narrow around his head and his feet are at the end) and he is not a huge kid. I was joking about how Kieran would have outgrown it already because he IS a huge kid. I know that it being snug around his head and his feet at the end is NOT outgrowing it...he prolly has plenty of actual growth room in it. But it just looked like a tight fit and I would not be happy with that on my 4-month-old.
I would look into other Gracos. We have an older one (a SR32) and it has really nice soft fabric. But I have seen the fabric you are talking about and would not like it either. I think seats are hard decisions overall. Good luck!
