From the Manufacturer

Key Features:
  • Rigorously crash tested to meet or exceed US safety standards.
  • Side impact tested for occupant retention solely with the built-in 5-point harness system.
  • Five-point harness car seat from 20-65 pounds that converts to a belt-positioning booster from 30-100 pounds and finally converts to a backless booster from 40-100 pounds.

Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat

Safety Features Galore

At the heart of it all, Nautilus is designed to help keep your growing child safe. This seat is steel reinforced for strength and durability, has been engineered and crash tested to meet or exceed standards, including:

  • U.S. Compliance Standard FMVSS 213.
  • New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) – peak Crash Force approximately 2x Car Seat Standard.
  • Extreme Car Interior Temperatures.
  • It also features EPS energy absorbing foam for effective impact energy management.

Just Right

Graco’s top-rated Nautilus three-in-one convertible car seat helps keep your child secure in a 5-point harness, from 20-65 pound and from 27 inch – 52 inch. When your child is ready, the forward-facing car seat converts to a belt-positioning booster from 30-100 pound and 38 inch – 57 inch, then to a backless booster seat from 40-100 pound and 40 inch – 57 inch. It’s just like having three car seats, in one.

Stay Harnessed, Longer

On the Nautilus, the 5-point harness is extended, in order to fit children up to 65 pound, keeping them harnessed even longer. This is in keeping with the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations (they are one of the respected sources when it comes to child safety), which state that, when forward-facing, children should use a 5-point harness for as long as possible—until they reach the maximum height or weight limit for their seat.

Age/ Weight Recommendations

  • Designed to accommodate children from 20 – 100 pounds and from 27 – 57 inches.
  • 20 – 65 pounds, 27 inch – 52 inch with 5-point harness.
  • 30 – 100 pounds, 38 inch – 57 inch as highback booster.
  • 40 – 100 pounds, 40 inch – 57 inch as backless booster.

Fully Adjustable Headrest

When it comes to attaining a proper fit in your car seat (essential to protecting your child best), it’s important that the headrest and head support are in the right position. The Nautilus features a one-hand height adjustable head rest—a feature experienced moms love.

Just Right for Your Independent Child

The open loops at the top of the seat easily position your vehicle’s seatbelt, which makes it easier for your independent little (or big) one to self-buckle.

Comfortable Ride

Wide, padded armrests are extra-comfy for your child as he / she grows, and this seat has three different recline positions, so it’s simple to get the correct angle for proper installation and optimal comfort. The integrated cup holder and storage (for small games and toys) are added features bigger kids really appreciate.

It seems very safe and comfortable.
Vegan Mama
The crotch strap is short and it is too close to the child, and presses tightly against their body, with or without the pad around the buckle.

Love that in will not need to buy another car seat.

Color Name: Matrix
I own 2 Britax Frontiers in Pink, and the Graco Nautilus in pink as well. As a Mother who owns both models, I will tell you the major differences between these two seats from my point of view.
#1 Frontier is more expensive (which is why I got the Nautilus for my spare)
#2 Frontier is SO much easier to adjust the shoulder height strap. With a simple squeeze of a lever, the straps go up. The Graco needs to be rethreaded. This is BIG pain when you have another child who wants to use the seat. With the Frontier, it is no biggie to pull the lever.
#3 Frontier seat material is prone to wear where the child's bottom and legs rub on the seat. It also shows WAY more stains and soaks up spills quicker than the Graco.
#4 Frontier has 3 crotch strap adjustments for easy fitting. The Graco only has 2 which makes the older kids sit on the strap. This can get uncomfortable. My oldest DD takes the pad off of the crotch strap on the Frontier (she says it makes the seat look like a "baby seat" with the pad), but she can not do this with the Graco, as the crotch strap rubs on her legs causing red irritation when wearing shorts. The graco pad is very thick and wraps the entire strap (between the legs) and then goes up to sit on the belly. She does not seem to mind sitting on it, but it does not look too comfortable to me.
#5 Padding on Frontier is WAY thicker (on both seat and seat back)and more comfortable to sit on. I can't imagine that the Graco would be comfortable for long trips.
#6 Heads slump forward for younger kids when sleeping in the Graco. The "wings" around the head are very fat (giving the appearance of a "yonger child's seat") and are so close to the child's head that it causes it to go forward when sleeping.

Color Name: Matrix Verified Purchase
Many reviewers have commented here that the crotch strap is incredibly short. I spent some time agonizing before I finally ordered, since I did not want to have to return it. But it turns out, the crotch strap is plenty long. I even bought a second one for my other child. Here's what you need to do.

1. Once your child is too large for the smallest setting on the 5 point harness, follow the instructions to REMOVE THE BODY SUPPORT. This is the thing that looks like extra padding in what would be the lumbar region if you could somehow squeeze an adult into the seat. In my copy of the manual it is shown on page 6 under "Features". If you fail to REMOVE THE BODY SUPPORT, yes, indeed, the crotch strap appears to be ridiculously short. So, in conclusion, REMOVE THE BODY SUPPORT per the instructions.

2. Also, as many have commented, move the crotch strap to the second slot. Make sure you are using the second slot in the hard plastic base, not just the second slot in the fabric insert.

3. Congratulations, you now have a ton of space in the crotchular region. I have a 56 lb 43 inch tall son who, even while wearing ski pants, fits just fine in the seat when configured according to points 1 and 2. He is not 'sitting on' the crotch buckle as so many have alleged. I think a child who doesn't have enough room is likely too large for the weight limit on the harness anyway, in which case you remove the harness and migrate to #2 of the "3-in-1" scheme and secure the child in the booster with the vehicle belt.

PROS:
The kids love them.
The price is right. They are quite a bit cheaper than the corresponding Britax model.

Color Name: Matrix
The crotch strap.

This seat looked ideal in every way. I liked it right out of the box, and when I put it together. It was exactly what I was looking for.

Then, I sat our average-sized 3 1/2 year old in it, boxed it up and sent it back, very disappointed.

The crotch strap, in the closest position, was beneath the back of my son's crotch. In the farther (and only other) position, it was even with, and slightly pressing against, the front of my son's crotch. In other words, no room to grow whatsoever. There is no way possible that this seat would allow my son to sit comfortably in a five-point harness all the way up to 65 pounds. At that point, the strap would be well beneath his crotch and be uncomfortable and dangerous. No way... and I really wanted it to. If there was one additional slot for the strap, an inch or so farther out, this seat would be PERFECT, in my opinion.

So, I gave this seat a 3 out of 5. For a younger child, or one just reaching my son's age and size (again, he is very average in weight, height), I would probably rate this seat a 5. But, since it clearly will not be able to do what it says it should do, up to 65 pounds, I cannot give it a 5. I honestly don't know how any child can be accomodated in this seat up to 65 pounds, unless they are a very, very skinny 65 pounds.

If Graco updates this seat to add one extra slot an inch or so farther out for the strap, I would buy it again immediately. I was, and am, a little angry that the seat won't work as advertised. Buyer beware; look up the few other comments on the crotch strap first. Then, please, go to the store and "test sit" this seat before buying, and please consider how big your child will be at 3 1/2, or older. Otherwise, you may find the same disapointing fact I did.
