Britax Advocate 70-G3 - Onyx


The Britax Advocate 70-G3 convertible car seat is designed for children rear facing from 5 to 40 pounds and forward facing from 20 to 70 pounds. The Advocate 70-G3 achieves revolutionary head safety through the use of Britax SafeCell Technology in the base and HUGS chest pads with SafeCell Technology , integrated steel bars, and energy absorbing Versa-Tether that work together to minimize head excursion and reduce the risk of head injury during a frontal impact. The Advocate 70-G3 also incorporates energy-managing Side Impact Cushion Technology, reducing incoming side impact crash energy by 45 percent by diverting crash forces away from the child. It is equipped with Britax True Side Impact Protection and a Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator to aid in proper harness snugness. Additional features include a no-rethread and quick-adjust five-point harness, multiple buckle and recline adjustments, and an easy-remove cover that also allows access to belt paths from the front of the seat. A body pillow is provided for extra comfort and infant positioning.

Recommended Age:Newborn, Baby, Toddler

Features:

  • HUGS Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology are affixed to the seat shell to ensure proper positioning while SafeCells compress to manage energy and provide resistance to the forward movement of your child in a crash, reducing the risk of head injury

  • Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash
  • Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat
  • Side Impact Cushion Technology features energy-absorbing cushions on the exterior of the child seat to reduce side impact crash energy by 45% by diverting crash forces away from your child and providing extra protection for the adjacent passenger
  • Click & Safe-« Snug Harness Indicator is an audible aid that provides extra assurance when the harness is within range of appropriate snugness

        Comments about Advocate 70-G3 - Onyx:

        After months of research, we chose this car seat for each of our grandchildren from Newborn + Up. Safety is not a place to compromise.

        **KEEPING YOUR CHILD REAR FACING FOR THE FIRST 4 YEARS HAS PROVEN TO REDUCE SEVERE INJURY AND DEATHS BY 90%...**Don't be sorry...Be SAFE! The laws in the U.S.A don't keep up with the safety studies and statistics that the Europeans have regarding this. (sadly not surprising).. FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR CHILD, KEEP THEM REAR FACING and absolutely don't pinch pennies when it comes to their safety...

        Comments about Advocate 70-G3 - Onyx:

        We purchased this car seat for our 5 month old who has nearly grown out of her infant car seat. We anticipated buying two of this product, one for each car, but wanted to purchase one first to see how we liked it. All said, we will be purchasing a duplicate car seat in the near future.
        The reasons we purchased the Advocate 70-G3 are mainly the safety features. While the Pavillion 70-G3 is $40 less expensive, we figured we would opt for the Side Impact Technology that the Advocate offers. Fortunatley, we have not had to use the technology just yet, but its presence gives us peace of mind.
        Pros are similar to many other car seat options in that this model is convertible and has a five point harness, though the EZ Buckle system is pretty easy. I also like the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator, even though it seems to make the shoulder straps quite snug--perhaps uncomfortably so--on my baby. Other minor issues I have with the seat so far is that, with our daughter's current size (about 19lbs., 27"), the HUGS chest pads are cumbersome and the straps are a bit difficult to adjust. I also think that, because the shoulder straps are supposed to be below the shoulders, it's uncomfortable for the baby. My daughter never fussed when being put into her old car seat, but she does a bit every time I put her into this one. Hopefully she will grow out of the fussing as she grows into the seat. Regardless, the Advocate 70-G3 seems to be the top in safety and I would recommend it to friends.

        Comments about Advocate 70-G3 - Onyx:

        We graduated our baby from the peg perego bucket seat to this seat because she got too tall (and heavy!) for the bucket. Went with this brand because of all of the good safety reviews. I cannot imagine a little 5 lb-er fitting in this seat without absolutely SWIMMING in it. Olive is more comfortable and the straps are good because they are designed to stay in place over the shoulders. I would recommend this seat. Not easy to install however - it REALLY helps to have the clips that newer cars have to lock it into place.
