    Evenflo Triumph V Convertible Car Seat


    My 4 1/2 month old is 17 1/2 lbs., 26 inches long and has just outgrown his infant car seat (from a travel system). What do you know about Evenflo's new Tiumph V Comfort Dimensions Convertible car seat? Our friend has a Britax Roundabout, but this seat seems to have similar options. We have a 1998 Ford Explorer and would like to keep the baby in the middle and rear facing as long asss possible. We are considering driving 2 hours to purchase this seat. What do you think?

    Howdy-


    The Triumph is a very nice high-end model. Babies R Us also now carries a version with LATCH.

    As for dimensions, you might try the compatibility database to see if anyone has tried one in a recent Explorer:

    Good luck!

    It makes my list!


    You are right. The Triumph does have some of the same features as the Roundabout. It has an EPS foam lining, for example. It also has a unique harness adjuster, which is different from the Roundabout's, but should be easy to use, which is critical, IMO.

    It has a tether, but unlike the Roundabout, the Triumph's tether cannot be used rear facing; it is for front facing use only. It also lacks the built in locking clips that the Roundabout has. They both have 30 lb rear facing weight limits and 40 lb front facing limits.

    The best thing you can do is to try it in your vehicle and try your child in it. If it fits your child, your car and your budget, it might be the right seat for you.
