bit on the heavy side weight wise but feels well built. Compatible with Britax car seat a bonus as they perform very well in the crash tests. Most likely compatible with their carrycots too as the adapters for the car seat and carrycot are the same. Heat added
My mistake, they don’t have to be rear facing in older non I-size seats (which this is and where child is “measured” by weight). With newer I-size seats (which classify the child by height instead) they have to be kept rear facing until >15months (yet another way of classifying them!!). In any case we’re keeping our toddler rear facing for stage 1.
Pretty certain children have to be rear facing to 15 months now and if you have the option I’d suggest looking into rear facing for much longer. The evidence for rear facing as the safer option is pretty compelling.
good price! have some heat op!
Thank I didn’t really know they did so many versions after looking and reading a lot I went for XP SICT more expensive but with the added points bonus this weekend was worth waiting
I bought 2 of the non SICT version of these last month using the code- worked out about £72 each I think. They are great seats and easy to fit
op the picture is wrong in your post... thats the XP version the boots one is the non XP (basically doesnt have the pad that sits on the kids shoulder)
Join the parenting club then you get 10 points for every pound...
You need to change the colour to get that price.
strange was def there half an hour ago
No such price on their website, was this in-store?
Would have been a great deal!
Can you still see this live on their website as it's vanished for me so hence I expired it. Will happily unexpired if still the case, bargain!
Just literally bought one so this needs to be unexpired. Thanks for posting as I have been specifically looking for a deal on this seat for a couple of months :)
Didn't come off at checkout for me but a great deal for this seat all the same!
It comes off when you pay dont need a code
what code did you use for this? just about to order myself! thanks in advance
Andreah - I am am not sure. Could be their clearance stock. I picked up purple and was informed I was lucky as they only had one purple left though they had black on display.
Is this deal just in the charlton store?
Having said all that, a rear facing seat will provide your toddler with way more protection for their head and neck than this seat ever would. I did have an Evolva 1-2-3 seat for my older two children, it was a great seat at the time but once I researched rear facing seats I couldn’t bring myself to re-use it for our third child.
The “SL” refers to Soft Latch, which is isofix connectors on a length of strap (rather than being rigid). The “SICT” refers to Side Impact Cushion Technology (which is that round thing on the side of the seat) From the Britax website; “Advanced features and flexibility The EVOLVA range has been popular with parents for over 10 years. The latest addition, the EVOLVA 1-2-3 SL SICT offers advanced safety performance and a premium look. Our improved Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT) minimises the force of an impact in a side collision, and the Soft-Latch ISOFIX installation connects the seat direct to the car.”
Side Impact Cushion Technology
I agree 100% (y) .
XD It's a parents job to know about them. Parents can buy any seat they wish. I just think it's important that whatever decision that is made is an informed one so I keep myself up to date as I would expect to change a car seat every few years myself as the safety technology evolves so I choose to stay informed rather than just doing the research when seats are being out grown. It's just my personal perspective it ensures some peace of mind.
good price, the seat is very hard, we only use it in town for short journeys
This seat is a pain to put in the car. I would only recommend it if you're keeping it in the one car.
Can I ask what do you do for a living? You know soo much about Car seats?
***An Urgent recall has been issued on the Romer Dualfix** In March 2018, Britax Römer issued a voluntary recall of certain classic DUALFIX child car seats due to a potential safety issue with a component in these seats. This potentially affected component was used in production batches sold between 3rd November 2017 and 22nd March 2018. https://www.britax-roemer.co.uk/safety-notices-1?article=SafetyNotice-DualfixRecall
Got 2 of these car seats, much more cosy than my previous mothercare one and more secure too. Great price, I managed to get a similar offer when boots did a flash sale
SEAT10 now expired :(
Awesome, needed a new one. Was waiting for black Friday but can't see this one going cheaper than that.
Great find... Paid £300 for mine a year ago... ;(
Thanks op, just ordered and got 1180 points. I have the britax advansfix II and the harness is suitable up to 24kg - my son was 18kg when he was 2 and this was the only seat i could find which he could still use the harness - the newer version however is now only suitable up to 18kg. Thankfully my youngest is a lot more petite so this seat is perfect
Yes it's up to 18kg with the harness but then they go seat-belted into this car-seat up to 36kg. I'm surprised some parents would miss this point, as it's the same on nearly all car seats of this type but then again what some people do, is often baffling. A safe well known brand car seat that goes all the way up to 36kg (approx. age 12) for this price is pretty good value in my opinion. We got one for ourselves and one for our parents. At this price, it's a cracking good seat for grandparents.
Yes when using it as a booster seat with the belt you need to strap it in when not in use. For someone thinking of getting it for a younger child in harnessed mode (up to age 3 or 4) it stays in place with the adult belt all the time same as the evolva. The evolva does to an older age and the stages is suitable from birth so can be used earlier. Best choice just depends on the age of the child I suppose. Personally 7 years use is enough for one seat to be good value to me. The technology used in car seats is improving all the time. Any long life seat won't compare to the safety of the latest seats when they are a few years old anyway.
Very good point, which I forgot to mention! The 18kg weight limit is right there in the manual, and on my seat it was on the sticker on the side of the actual seat, but sadly a lot of parents don’t bother to read the manual that comes with any new seat that they buy. It’s quite common that parents will continue to use the harness, ignoring or not being aware of the weight limit, because they think their child is safer in that than using the seatbelt. This is very dangerous.
Yeah we looked at that Joie too but because it doesn't isofix, you have to manually seatbelt it in everytime after your child gets out, else the whole seat will fly about your car when you hit the brakes. Also it's only up to age 7 or 8 instead of age 12 & it's more expensive. As a result we ruled that one out.
Thanks very much. Recently argos cancelled an order I placed due to pricing error and sent me a 10% off voucher. Got this for £145 :).
WOW that's a great deal!
The difference is the side impact is improved on the new version. It doesn't have isofix bars just straps with a clip at the end that if is useful when using as a high back booster as it keeps the seat in place when the child is not using it. Booster seats are supposed to be strapped in when not in use so they don't fly cross the inside of the car in an accident. The isofix bars or connectors are handy on a high back booster if you have moulded back seats to prevent the seat sliding over the buckle when trying to strap the child in.
There is also a non-ISOFIX version of the seat, that will be cheaper. If it doesn't have 'SL' in the name of the seat it's not the ISOFIX one.
If it's the 'SL' version of the seat it DOES have ISOFIX (the SL means Soft Latch - this is what Britax use to describe the ISOFIX connectors on a length of strap that this seat has). You still have to use the seatbelt to secure the seat in the car, the ISOFIX function is neither here nor there when you are using the seat for a child under 18kgs (with the 5-point harness securing the child into the seat). Where the ISOFIX comes in handy is when you convert the seat to be a high backed booster - the fact that it's clipped into the ISOFIX points in your car means you won't have to remember to fasten the seatbelt over the empty seat if you are in the car without your child.
Reviews say no ISOFix?
All britax gone down in Halfords 20%
get on kidstart there are a few retailers doing cashback on them that are not on any other sites

damn! I got excitied then
Sorry! I must have got the last one :(
Thanks for sharing but already OOS i'm afraid, expired.
I agree, it is a good seat with excellent reviews on Which?
XP is more expensive everywhere.. i bought this on previous halfords offer.. tis a good seat but VERY upright.. my 5 year old cant sit back in it x
Thats SL type, not XP as per post.
They are £115 here http://www.preciouslittleone.com/product-information/6/44046/britax-kidfix-sl-sict-isofit-car-seat-(cosmos-black)/?gclid=CJGfhOCe9dMCFUMcGwodZrwIsg
received mine in under 10 days
group 2/3 seats don't generally have much recline as it puts LO at risk of submarining under the seatbelt in the event of a crash. We've got the Cybex Solution hbb - it has a reclining headrest which, along with the headrest sides, is generally enough to keep her head tilted back when she sleeps (although we have recently bought the Radian 5 to make her a bit comfier on long drives).
I am having second thoughts is there any good stage 3 reclining seats ?
??? I have used the free prime membership on my account so will have to open a new one
Great price . VH No new members are being accepted this year, message me, I can probably get you in for about £200
Thanks for posting this. I just bought 2x Recaro Young Sport Hero Child Car Seat - Performance Black for £216 (and 3% quidco on top). The seats are £135 in Halfords before discount compared to £180 elsewhere.
It does on the left choose "baby seats" to get rear facing as it incudes the toddler seats and then choose isofix
Thank you OP. Got the Cosatto Isofix for £79.99. Great price.
We're is this discount code advertised to?
thought i'd try just incase and it worked for me with maxi cosi rodi!! thanks!! £20 saving!
Erm... it does say Prime Exclusive in the title....and it's not pointless to the many who have Prime. Grouchy!
£68.00 & FREE Delivery without isofix
been this price 3 or 4 times in last 6m and now they've got this pointless prime only deal which should be in the title
it's just a strap that attaches the top of the seat to a tether point in the boot/behind seat/under parcel shelf (depending on car)
I may be dumb but what's a tether? I haven't had a problem fitting it in any of the cars I have used it in
I was under the impression that the top tether was an additional 'optional' fitting if you had a tether point and wasn't actually required as such.
This seat requires a top tether for compatibility with most cars, check the fitting guide still a bargain but the tether must be purchased separately, smyths don't stock it.
It definitely is, I will post the receipt if you like, I got it from the Bolton store
I got conformation text and email. It still shows confirmed and delivery on or before 28th March. I don't mind if it's cancelled, these things happen but halfords have my phone number and email. They have not called, text or emailed me to say it's cancelled and that is a very poor show. As is working through a list as an excuse for not being on top of it. A company of this size can select and bang out a thousand generic cancellation emails in a few clicks. They are just a rubbish company. And if you want conformation of that you don't have to go any further than their own staff. Ask at the tills what they think of halfords systems and get ready for some honest opinions of a low paid shelf stacker!
Did anyone manage to actually pick one up or get it delivered?
Mine is the same so phoned and got told it should be in tomorrow's delivery (by the manager) - shop seems unaware of any issues and I didn't let on either! My order was placed at 11.21
Still saying from the 28th when I track it so I just phoned my local store where I was supposed to collect it from today and she looked on the computer system and said it should be in the next delivery on Thursday:-) fingers crossed
I thought you were meant to get an update when your reserve and collect item was available to collect?
