Best Carseats for Extended Harnessing: Seats That Go the Distance from CarseatBlog

A Definitive Guide to the Longest-Lasting Harnessed Car Seats of 2020

Are you looking for a car seat with a 5-point harness that will fit your child for longer before being outgrown by weight or height? We’ve compiled a list of seats that will do just that! Our exclusive criteria include weight limits, maximum height measurements (we personally check all measurements to make sure they are accurate), as well as some other factors that may affect bigger kids overall. We are NOT including standing height limits for forward-facing because those numbers are often unrealistic. Instead, we are focusing on the maximum harness height measurement since that is a much more reliable indicator of how long the seat might actually fit your child before being outgrown by height.

Generally speaking, the seats on this list will accommodate most 5- and 6-year-olds, and some 7- and 8-year-olds in the 5-point harness. Obviously, the tallest and heaviest kids will outgrow these seats before their average and smaller-than-average counterparts will, so your expectations should be realistic. However, this list should serve as a good point of reference.
