I got a chance to try this booster as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel.

We have a 7 year old, and he loves this seat. He's a little shorter than most his age so he'll be in a car seat booster for awhile yet.

Pros: seems easy to clean
Turns into a backless booster from a highback booster
The sides of the highback expands out for bigger kids with a easy turning knob on the back
It has two latches to keep it from sliding around!! The chicco booster I was looking at only has one so this was nice!
2 Cup holders are available and can be moved in to give space
Lots of room for my oldest to grow
Pretty good price for the car seat

Cons: being used picky here but the knob to turn the shoulder width is a little hard to turn
Cup holders are also a little hard to pull out and in
It seems Bigger than the chicco booster I was looking at.

Overall, it's a solid car seat and my son thought it was very comfortable. We haven't gone for a long trip just yet, but he likes it so far! Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster!

I like the color and the choice of materials for this booster seat. I also love the hidden seat belt adjuster for the backless mode.
On the downside, this seat is pretty large which prevents to buckle the seat belt if properly installed with the latch system. I drive a Ford C-max and the back seat size is decent so I was really disappointed to either need to use a seat belt extender or to install the booster without latch on the edge of the seat, touching the door.
The latch system is disappointing given the quality of the product. It is not easy to use, especially if the anchors of your car are hard to reach.
I feel like it's a great product for larger kids and would fit a large car.

Comments about Diono Monterey XT High Back Booster Car Seat - Grey:

I loved our previous diono so bought this stage 3 car seat without doing any research. I'm really glad I did. Tons of adjustments and very sturdy. I have no complains and think it's worth every penny. Easy to install and use. Great features and good quality.

Very sturdy and comfortable highback booster

By Zakia

Comments about Diono Monterey XT High Back Booster Car Seat - Grey:

I have bought this car seat two weeks back for my 6 yr old daughter. We wanted a high back booster seat so that she can sleep comfortably during long trips. The seat very wide for bigger kids and so is the headrest. The side is very strudy. The car seat reclines as seat reclines. My daughter is very happy with her car seat. I think it is going to last long.

Comments about Diono Monterey XT High Back Booster Car Seat - Grey:

Bought this booster seat because I liked the reinforced sides and lower anchors. Kids love the comfy seats. Height and sides are very easy to adjust. Highly recommend if your looking for a great booster. *would have given a 5 but the seat belt is hard to get in the buckle.*

    Comments about Diono Monterey XT High Back Booster Car Seat - Grey:

    I'm a long-time Diono fan and have two of their convertible car seats, so I was especially excited to get the chance to test this booster as part of the weeSpring parent panel. Because it's so simple to install (ridiculously easy) and so lightweight, we're using it as a third seat to have on hand when my kiddo has a friend coming with us or when we're sending him in someone else's car. We also just took it on an international trip and loved that we were able to get the security of a high back booster for my kindergartener with a lightweight seat that we could check in a car seat bag in two pieces.

    I'd feel comfortable and safe having my son ride in this every day, but at the price point, it's almost a no brainer to have this on hand even if you're using a high-weight-limit convertible car seat that your kid won't outgrow.

    Comments about Diono Monterey XT High Back Booster Car Seat - Grey:

    My son loves it! He said it's very comfortable and can buckle himself and get out so easily. He likes the secret cup holders. Color options are fun too. I like that we can use it with the seat back now and can transition to the backless booster as he grows.
    Cons: The seat back is wider/bulkier than other seats we have; and the back and seat sections kept falling apart when I carried it to the car.
    Overall we are very happy with this booster! Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster to try. We love it!

    Comments about Diono Monterey XT High Back Booster Car Seat - Grey:

    My daughter at the age of 3 was to tall for the 5 point we had for her and was unsafely in a car seat due to her size. At the age of four we put her in a booster seat with a back part, wasn't long before she was to tall for the back part on her booster. With the Diono my daughter can safely stay in her booster with the back. I love the color and the ease of use for a parent with this booster. It is a little wider than her other one making it a little more difficult for her to buckle at the age of five. I loved how safe she looked in it. Upon taking it out of the box I did realize there wasn't instructions making it super difficult to know how to build it so I looked up the instructions. It is a little heavier than her other one but to me it is also better quality. My daughter loves her new seat and that it is so much nicer than her other one. I am not a fan of not being able to hide the flap that will fold over the back part ones its just a seat it kind of just sits out exposed and I feel it is going to get messed up with the constant sitting. We don't use this with the hooks because my van doesn't have them but I love that it does have the option. I do know I will be purchasing this for my other children when they get in booster seats. Overall this is an amazing car seat and I feel so much safer with her in this than the other one. I am a mom who has wrote this with her honest opinion and I am glad that I was given the opportunity to test this product thanks to the weeSprings Parent Panel. This is honestly a fantastic booster especially for parents with bigger children.

    Great booster that would fit kids of every size

    Comments about Diono Monterey XT High Back Booster Car Seat - Grey:

    We've been using this booster for about a month now and overall I like it a lot. It was very easy to use from the start. It was very obvious how to put it together and adjust it accordingly. I really like having the latches to keep the seat secure, even as a backless booster. And I appreciate how easy and quick it was to install and uninstall using the latches - and a being able to just pull the latches into the seat bottom to store is nice, rather than having no where to store them OR having to find the specific points to hook them on under the seat like other boosters I've owned.

    My 6 1/2 year old found the booster to be comfortable as a backless, as well as a high back when adjusted correctly. (Too low and my daughter complained it hurt her shoulders.) We did not adjust the width of the back, as the booster is wide enough for my average sized daughter without any complaint. Although if you had a kid who was very broad, the seat would be very accommodating, no problem. She liked the headrest and found it comfortable to nap against on long car rides. She also felt the padding was comfortable. The seatbelt was in the right spot across her chest every time she buckled in, so I never really had to reach back to adjust it.

    The material was pretty easy to surface clean and it seems obvious enough on how to detach/reattach for cleaning. I am a little disappointed that we can't put it in the washing machine (instructions are to hand-wash only), as I have very little time and patience for hand washing!

    The cup holders really do fold away, so they're out of the way. But they fold away so much that my daughter never used them!

    Overall, we like the booster and would recommend it to others - and we'd definitely consider buying it (as this time we received the booster to try out from the weeSpring Parent Panel).

    Comments about Diono Monterey XT High Back Booster Car Seat - Grey:

    I got a chance to try this booster as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. This has all the makings of a luxurious and high-quality Diono seat, but at such an affordable price tag. It's so well-made, yet does not sacrifice the comfort level for the child. My son immediately commented on how much better it felt than his previous seat. I love the ability to adjust the seat - not only height-wise, but the width of the seat-back as well. The fold-away cup holders are also such a nice touch. Overall, the seat is not bulky or heavy, and the fabric is easily removable for a quick and frustration-free cleaning process.

    One small issue I had was the difficultly in removing the seat-back portion to turn it into a backless booster. I like the option to do-so, but it was not very apparent how to do that, and my seat did not come with a manual.
