Britax Advocate ClickTight vs Chicco NextFit Convertible Car Seat

Both are great convertible car seats but we think Britax Advocate ClickTight is better, parents also report that it is much more comfortable and their kids like it more than Chicco NextFit. There was a recall by Britax about  ClickTight models, but the recalled ones have already been removed from the stores and the ones in the stores do not have a recall. You can use Advocate ClickTight longer than Chicco NextFit because of its harness position.
