Diono first released their Monterey high back booster seat in 2008. It was immediately a hit with families and CPSTs because it provided an extendable back to accommodate their growing widths, and a tall back that allowed bigger kids to ride in a supportive high back booster seat. Some of our oldest CSFTL models
Carfoldio’s first product was the mifold travel booster seat, which hit the market in 2017. They’ve now released their high back foldable booster seat to the United States and EU markets with the hifold fit-and-fold booster. We’re intrigued by this transformer-esque booster seat, so let’s take a look at what it has to offer. CSFTL
The Cosco Pronto high back booster seat has been on the market since 2014 and has consistently been an excellent, low-budget booster seat option for tall kids who need the support of a high back booster (as long as the vehicle they are riding in has a headrest in their seating position).

This high back booster converts to a lightweight backless booster seat that has a surprise inside! The RightGuide is described as a “seat belt trainer,” that lifts out from the backless portion
The Graco Turbo Go does what we’d expect a booster seat to do — it just works. The vehicle seat belt fit was spot on for all of our models.
