Graco Size4Me 65 vs. Graco Sequence
The Graco Size4Me 65 is a safe, reliable convertible car seat from the respected team at Graco. However, if you are looking for a near-identical Graco convertible with a few more features at a better price, consider the Graco Sequence. The Sequence is a slightly newer model than the Size4Me, so it has some design advantages that parents will appreciate.
Both the Graco Size4Me and the Graco Sequence have:
The Size4Me converts to forward-facing a bit earlier, at as few as 20 pounds, while the Sequence can't be converted to front-facing until 22 pounds. However, extended rear-facing is the safer choice, and it's best to keep children rear-facing for as long as possible, up to the rear-facing height and weight limits.
In addition to these features, the Graco Sequence also has:
The Graco Sequence only has one buckle position instead of two, and does not have the InRight LATCH system that the Size4Me has. LATCH installation with the Sequence is still fairly fast and simple, but is not as easy as the InRight system. And though the Sequence cover is removable and washable without rethreading, it isn't as simple as the Size4Me RapidRemove cover.
Because the Sequence has more recline angles, it may be a better fit in a wider variety of vehicles, even though it is 1.75 inches taller. And, depending on your upholstery choices, the Sequence is a few dollars less expensive than the Size4Me.
Both the Graco Size4Me and the Graco Sequence are good, reliable convertible car seats that are easy to use and easy to clean. For many parents, the Graco Sequence might be a better buy, with more harness and recline positions, two cupholders, and a longer maximum life span.
However, the Graco Size4Me does have slightly easier installation, with the InRight LATCH system, and the RapidRemove cover. The time saved on these little functional details may be worth a few more dollars for parents who frequently move or adjust the car seat.
Gears & Gadgets Graco Size4Me 65 Review
When it comes to convertible car seats, the Graco Size4Me 65 is one of the better choices on the market. The price is about mid-range, but it is worth it not to have to purchase another seat in a year when they have outgrown their rear-facing seat.
The Size4Me 65 is both a rear-facing and forward-facing convertible car seat. Even more importantly, it passes crash tests with flying colors. It uses the LATCH system to secure your little, and it has push-on LATCH connectors that reduce human error when you are installing the seat. Also, it has separate rear and forward-facing LATCH straps.

The ease of installation and use for the Size4Me 65 is straightforward and simple. The Simply Safe Adjust no-rethread harness makes it so easy that you may find you can do it with one hand.
If you have a smaller sized car, the Size4Me 65 may not be the best choice. It has a wider than average base and takes up a fair bit of room in the backseat. However, the size allows you to take trips or commutes while your child is comfy in their seat. It has eight different headrest positions and three recline positions.
