Clek Foonf vs Britax Advocate Clicktight - The Car Seat Dilemma

Ahhhh...the time has come, my friends.  Our dearly beloved Orbit infant car seat AND toddler car seat both expire in October, a mere 3 months from now.  The infant car seat has been used through all four of our kids - purchased at the end of '08, it has carried Cole ('09), Vera ('11), Asher ('13), and now Zella ('14).  The Orbit toddler car seat was purchased in early '09 and carried all but Zella.  In a way I am happy we are using them until their expiration dates because it makes it easier for me to part with them, knowing they are technically no longer safe to be used.

Anyway, getting past the strangely emotional car seat talk, we are now in the market for a new convertible car seat.  Cole currently rides in a Clek Oober full back booster seat, which we really like.  Vera is in the Clek Foonf convertible car seat, forward facing, and although it is a heavy one, the Foonf is pretty amazing.  After the expiration in October, Asher will be sitting in the Britax Advocate Clicktight that is currently in Jake's car - it has been the quintessential "hold any kid" and "install any which way" car seat, easily adjusting to fit any situation we can throw at it.  This leaves Zella without a seat, so I am wondering which way to go...

Another Foonf...


or another Britax Advocate Clicktight...


Thoughts?
