It goes to 40 pounds rear-facing.  It goes to 50 pounds forward-facing.  It also has Air Protect, “the most innovative and groundbreaking safety feature ever offered in a car seat. Developed in conjunction with Kettering University’s renowned Crash Safety Center, Air Protect™ is designed to protect children in side impact collisions, putting a state-of-the-art layer of air protection where it’s needed most, around the child’s head.”

Not only that, but it’s created a lot of buzz at the Car-Seat.Org forums.  This thread is less than a week old and it’s already one of the most viewed on the forums and has almost 250 posts in it so far.  We hope to have a full review of the Safety 1st Complete Air with Air Protect at CarseatBlog.com later this summer!
