We think very highly of the Peg Perego Viaggio Convertible and that’s why it’s on our list of Recommended Seats. Recently Peg Perego added the option to tether this seat in the rear-facing position. Rear-facing tethering isn’t required but it’s an added bonus if you have a suitable location in your vehicle to use for this purpose.
For those who are unfamiliar with the practice of “Swedish Style” tethering and its benefits – please see Heather’s very informative blog on the subject: How to Use a Rear-Facing Tether
Peg Perego added the rear facing tether strap to the 570 convertible seat in March 2013. All seats manufactured after 3/2013 include the additional RF tether strap. Anyone with a 570 Convertible made prior to March 2013 can obtain the rear-facing tether strap by calling Peg Perego during regular business hours at (800) 671-1701.
The Peg Perego tether connector strap looks like this:
Peg strap compared with the current style Britax tether connector strap (Peg strap on top, Britax strap below). The current Britax “D-Ring” is just a hair longer (maybe .5 cm longer).
