Evenflo Triumph 65 DLX Seat Review
If you are in a dilemma as to which baby car seat to buy then the answer is simple! Buy the Evenflo Triumph 65 DLX seat and you will not regret it. This car seat is an innovative product which will save you a small fortune. A baby or child can travel safely in the Evenflo until they weigh 65lbs so this seat is certainly going to last you for years. The concept behind the seat is that babies weighing between 5 and 40 lbs should be placed in the seat with it rear facing for optimum comfort, and then once your child grows; the seat can be made forward facing. The forward facing position can be used from your child weighing 20lbs until they are 65lbs.
The Evenflo Triumph 65 DLX seat is reasonably priced compared to similar types of travel systems so is ideal if you are on a tight budget as you will only have to buy the one car seat. It comes with different features than other car seats such as a tension knob which is located at the side of the chair. By turning the knob with your hand you can easily control the tightness of the harness. The harness itself has a 65lbs harness weight rating which makes it suitable to use all the way through your baby’s development. Unlike most other car seats, the Evenflo has the advantage of having a multiple position recline feature for ultimate comfort.
The Evenflo triumph 65 DLX seat comes equipped with an extra foam seat cushion which makes it the most comfortable ride ever! This is because the foam is made from energy absorbing foam and so mimics the effect of a mattress. This makes it ideal for longer trips as baby can easily drop off to sleep. Also if the baby has a dirty diaper the comfortable cushion detracts from the diaper discomfort so you can finish your journey before changing the baby. This is a very convenient point as nobody likes hearing their baby screaming with discomfort while they are trying to negotiate busy traffic!
The infant head support pillow and the covers are all easily removable and fully washable although it is recommended that you use a delicate cycle on your machine to prolong the quality. The support pillow is so well designed that your child’s delicate head will not flop forward when the car is moving and because the Evenflo Triumph 65 DLX Seat is slightly higher than comparable models, your child can see out of the window while he or she is travelling. This is a bonus with older children as they tend to be nosy and the view keeps them occupied!
