Travel System Review

Rating: 1 lowest and 5 highest

Evenflo Journey Premier - ****

This includes the Embrace infant car seat and the Journey stroller. I like both pieces. We have two bases for the seat so that we don’t have to move them between cars. We had the bases installed by professionals. Actually, re-installed. We’d put them in ourselves, but didn’t manage to get them tight enough or leveled correctly. An organization called SafeKids hooked us up right. The infant seat is comfortable and lasts to 22 lbs. The Baby travels in it daily and has even gone on an 8-hour road trip in it with little fuss. At 20 lbs he’s still comfortable. The “Z” handle makes it easier to carry. We’re also pleased with the stroller. Getting the carrier on top of the stroller if fairly easy, though sometimes the safety strap was hard to pull on. It’s easy to fold and open, it reclines for occasions when baby wants to sleep. There is ample storage behind the seat and cup/bottle holder near the handle.
