DS is 10kg, 9 months and tall, and he will need a Group 1 car seat very soon.

We have a van which we use for occassional weekend camping, mountain biking etc trips. The middle seat has a lap belt.

Does anyone know of any Group 1 car seat which fit on lap belts ? In the MN Reviews section, the Britax Freestyle gets a good rating and it fits on a lapbelt. However I am suspicious that none of the big baby/car seat suppliers (Kiddicare, Halfords etc ) sell it.

The majority of the time the seat will be installed on a 3 point seat belt in a car. In fact we will probably get a Maxi Cosi or similar for the car and another one for the van.

You can get the Britax Eclipse that fits with lap belt, we have classic vehicles and even though we have 3 point belts too, they just don't fit modern car seats very well, so this is ideal.
