Evenflo Pivot Travel System Review

In my research for our upcoming vacation, I've looked into various grocery delivery services, necessary baby check lists, and stroller rentals. Baby's first big trip out of town has given me so many things to think about, including things I never thought I would need.

After hearing from so many of you guys about the ease of flying with a stroller, I decided to forego my planned stroller rental and bring one from home along with me.

Enter the Evenflo Pivot Travel System.


This stroller is light weight and has several different modes for travel. The handlebar is high enough for my tall husband to push without hurting his back and it includes an infant car seat and base.


The box arrived and I couldn't wait to put it all together!


The instructions were super easy to follow and before I knew it, the pieces and parts were assembled!


My favorite part about this Evenflo stroller is the diversity of the whole travel system. The stroller itself can hold up to 50 pounds and works in several different modes.


Here's toddler mode - with a foot rest and all. This is by far the most popular way to use this stroller at our home!


The infant car seat clicks nice and easy into the stroller. I like this infant setup because it provides extra protection from the sun.


In infant mode, the toddler base can also be removed and the infant car seat fits right into the stroller base.


Another favorite is the bassinet mode! On our very first walk in this stroller, Brayden fell fast asleep and was able to lie flat and take a very nice nap while we continued our walk! I love it!


Another favorite part of this stroller is the fact that no matter which way you have it (toddler mode, bassinet mode, or infant car seat mode), the entire base can be turned to either face you or face out! (Look at the difference in the above two photos...so cool!)


Last but not least, the whole setup comes with a nice leg cover for cold winter days!


Another favorite thing about this stroller is the easy way it folds up and stays fairly compact! This was a huge deciding factor on bringing it on vacation with us! 


The rear facing car seat is very nice, too! I was very impressed by the snug fit with the latch belts - this base doesn't move one bit.


Remember that nap I mentioned earlier? Yep, he was out for a good hour!


So, after a thorough review, I asked Brayden for his thoughts on the stroller and car seat combo. He pondered the question for a while....


...then decided it should receive an A+!

Overall, we really love this stroller and have used it on many occasions! Although it does include a cup holder for the parent, I would include one improvement idea - it needs a pocket of some sort near the handle bar for keys, cell phones, and other small items. I do have a velcro pocket strap from another stroller that I'm going to add to this one and see how it works. In all, I'm excited to take this Evenflo Pivot Travel System with us on vacation! It's going to be a fun week! :)

Thanks so much for this opportunity, Evenflo!

  1. hey after having this stroller for some time now. What do you think of it? I have a question regarding toddler mode. Do you think your kid will outgrow it? Im concerned that a toddler may get too tall for the stroller. Can they rest their foot on the basket if they're too tall?

    1. We still love it! This stroller is so easy for travel. He's always been in the 90th + percentile for height and fits just fine in the stroller (his feet sill aren't touching the bottom rim of the seat portion of this stroller). I know the weight limit goes up to 50 lbs so we plan to use this stroller as long as possible. I don't think they would be able to fit their feet comfortably in the bottom basket but the lip of the stroller seat itself is great for them to rest their feet. Hope that helps! :)
