A wonderful seat! Big, comfy, easy in-n-out, great fit... luv it!
February 7, 2013
When the time came for our little guy to switch to a convertible seat, we were overwhelmed with the choices! We searched all sorts of sites and reviews and in everything we read, we kept coming across the Evenflo Triumph models as a sure thing. Albeebaby.com had some nice deals going, so we bought an Evenflo Triumph Advance LX Convertible Car Seat in Regency and an Evenflo Triumph 65 LX Convertible Car Seat - Radisson... one for each of our vehicles (mid-sized SUVs). They are nearly identical, but the Advance LX is bigger than the 65 LX, even though the Advance LX is only rated to 50 pounds, where the 65 LX is rated to 65 pounds. Weird. We tried our little guy out in each one of the seats in the house before we installed them into the cars, and he LOVED them! He hung out for the longest time in one, and then fell asleep in the other. The fabric is nice, they are stylish, look good, are solid, fit in our cars nicely, and our LO is happy as can be when riding in them. They seem very safe, the adjustment of the belts is a breeze, and they have the latch mechanism for installing. All major pluses in my book. For the most part, both units seem nearly identical, except as I noted the Advance LX is a bit bigger. You can't go wrong with these seats unless your vehicle is too small to accommodate them... that seems to be the only restriction.
Pros:adjustment of belt system
easy release on belt tension
easy yet secure buckle
roomy and soft
Cons:might be too big for smaller cars, but not a problem for our vehicles.
