Originally everybody sold both seats were $180 in the store and online. Then for some reason Walmart started selling the gray seat for $138 and kept the other at $180. Maybe Walmart.com bought too many of the gray seats and they are trying to cut down on inventory. However, no matter what color car you have the gray one will match up. This can't be said for the Pink-orange one. Buy the gray one. You won't be disappointed and you'll save some cash.

Sometimes its the difference in fabric. The one I purchased for almost 180 from babies r us has sofet fabric that is exclusive to babies r us. The one I purchased from Walmart for 129, has different, less plush fabric, but just as great of a seat. Wal- Mart sells the exact same seat in the store as it does online, but in the store it is much more expensive.

My guess is you aren't asking where the 5 pt harness straps are, BUT rather the shoulder strap height adjustment slots. My Nautilus only has 4 different height adjustment slots. So when manufacturer says 5 pt harness they aren't talking about height slots. They are saying there's 5 areas that help secure a child during an accident.

No, it's a forward facing only car seat. If you are looking for a comparable car seat that faces rear too I would suggest the Graco MyRide 65. This goes rear facing to 40 pounds and forward to 65. Although that isn't as high as the Nautalis goes I can assure you that it will last until your child is at least 6 if your child is not way above average. I am currently using it for a 7 year old who is 55pounds and like it better than my Britax.
If you are set on getting a seat that rear faces and is a booster in this price range I would suggest the Evenflo Symphony or The First Years True Fit. One to steer clear of is the line from Dorel/Cosco/Eddie Bauer /Safety First(All the same company). They have a seat they refer as a 3 in 1 or Alpha Omega which says it goes to 100 pounds, it does't even come close! I stopped using it when my child was 4 b/c it wouldn't fit with the straps and the adjustable head rest was at the position where there would be minimal side impact protection b/c it went above the shell. Then even at 2 with a winter jacket it seemed like I was stuffing him in the seat. Sorry for the long post but I hopefully saved you some time and energy on car seat shopping. I wish someone had told me before I bought seats I ended up giving away long before my children outgrew them.

I don't know if you have already purchsed or not but, if I'm not mistaken, the it lists the height on the side of the seat (i'm not at home so I can't look sorry.)

Just a added tid bit, if the straps won't go over the winter coat, it is recommended that you take that coat off. #The general rule is that you shouldn't have to adjust straps for jackets or coats and if you do they are too big to wear while buckled.)

im not sure about the actual height restriction but my daughter still fit in the harness at 46in, however the harness straps were too short to fit over her bulky winter coat. she actually outgrew the harness by weight before she outgrew it by height and she is in the 60th percentile for height for her age.

I bought my Nautilus the week they hit the shelves for my then 4 year old daughter. At the time, it was the only carseat, aside from the large and expensive Britax Regent, tall enough for my daughter to use. She is off the charts heavy and tall and hit the harness weight limit and the height limit right at her 5th birthday.

My middle daughter who is now 4 uses the seat with lots and lots of room to grow. She is 40" tall and weighs 35lbs. I estimate that she has at least 2, maybe even 3 or 4 years before she outgrows the harness.

I know the seat has an adjustable headrest. To go into a high back booster a child is supposed to be 38', and the height adjusts taller from there, so I would say this would be a good option for you. The adjuster is easy to use and adjusts with one hand!
