Almost as expected
I should start by saying that we used a Keyfit for our last 2 babies and have 2 Britax convertible seats purchased in 2007. All of our car seats are expired and baby number 3 is on the way so I ordered a new Keyfit and figured I would give this a try for our 14 month old. I love that the seat seems very sturdy and safe and like that it has many recline options. I don't like that it takes me 3 times longer to load my 14 month old in this seat vs the Britax. With baby number 3 on the way I don't have time for this. The straps are difficult to pull tighten down. It does not have velcrow to secure the straps on the outside of the seat when loading in and out so they are constantly stuck under him. In general the straps seem shorter than in other seats and not long enough to flop over the edges. It is also a really deep seat which I'm assuming adds safety but it makes it harder to get a sleeping baby out because I have to dig under him and lift further. There is nothing wrong with this seat it's just not as user friendly as others. I think it will ge easier to use once my son is bigger but for now I'm making my husband use it while I find an alternative.

LOVE my Chicco Carseats
I had a Keyfit 30 infant seat and was sad that Chicco didn't have a convertible seat, as my DD approached the limit not long ago. Finally my hopes were fulfilled, and they came out with this seat. I bought one immediately from another retailer for my 2011 Honda Pilot. It is just as easy to install as the Keyfit base was. It has the same built-in level and has multiple recline positions. The straps have been hard to move at first, when compared to the Keyfit infant seat. However, when it came time for my mother to get a convertible seat for her car, we tried another, less expensive seat/brand, and were seriously disappointed. We ended up returning that seat immediately and buying this one for her 2010 Honda Accord and a third one for my husband's 2003 Pilot. The quality is beyond compare. My DD is secure and comfortable, but the thing that sold me immediately and has made me a die-hard Chicco fan is the fact that they are SO easy to install. If it's not isntalled properly, the child cannot be safe.
ProsEasy, easy, easy to install. Fits VERY well in a sedan (Honda Accord). We don't even have to move the passenger seat up to accomodate it. We did have to move the seat up in the Pilots, but an adult (5'8") passenger can still fit comfortably in the front seat.
ConsIt is heavy. This is not a seat that you're going to easily move from one car to another. However, what we found was that it was worth the investment in additional seats for other vehicles just because it's such a sturdy and well-made seat.

Love it! Fits the car, fits the baby, easy install
In the great debate over safety versus ease of use, this car seat has done the best so far and achieves both. I originally got a Recaro convertible but that did not fit in my car well (Audi A4) and it now resides in my husband's car (4Runner). I really like our Chicco Keyfit for the infant seat but this one feels so much more secure and safe. The versatility with the recline has made if the easiest install of a seat in my car yet. I haven't tried forward facing, but know that there are enough options that it will work. The second pull on the latch strap is a great development. If I had to move this from car to car every day or on occasion, it's much easier than other's I have tried.

Great for younger baby transitioning from infact seat
I like this seat, it was a great transition from the infant seat. The baby feels well protected and safe, and it has enough of a recline for them to nap in it

Love love love this car seat!!
We've had this car seat for a little over a month now and could not be happier with it! My daughter just turned a year old and had previously been in the keyfit 30 (which we also loved), but was starting to seem like she was ready for a bigger seat that would allow her to sit up and look around more. She is so happy in her new seat! It is a beautiful design and extremely user friendly. Like all Chicco products, the quality is excellent! We would definitely recommend this car seat!

I know this to be an issue on mine & my friends she has the nextfit zip. The car seat is nice and comfortable for my son but extremely heavy and bulky. The pilling is out of control. We've barely had this car seat for a year and a half and within 6 months of having it the pilling all over the fabric was annoying. I wouldn't get this car seat again or recommend it. It's too expensive for that to be happening.

We bought this car seat for my daughter when she outgrew the Chicco infant car seat. We love the multilevel recline options as well as the easy height adjuster that moves the shoulder straps up too.

Easy to use and light
We bought this for our son and it is a very comfortable seat. It is light so easy to switch cars. Easy to use latch system. The only problem as our son cold older and taller the seat seemed to get to small for him
ProsLight. Good latch system
ConsOn the smaller size for taller children

Nice seat
This is a nice seat with high sides so I fee that both my rear facing and forward facing child are safe. However, I'd recommend spending a little more money on the zip versions as they are just that much easier to clean. I like the ease of the latch system and how the seat is able to meet extended rear facing guidelines.

Not as excitied as I want to be
I have had this seat for a little over a year now. This seat is much easier to install rear-facing; however, my children have not been avle to ride rear facing as long as I would have liked (they had to ride with bent knees). I do not like the design of the back of the seat, It makes it difficult to feed the seatbelt through for forward facing. The seat comes off easily, but the straps cannot be removed to wash. I am also disappointed in the button to adjust the headrest; it is flimsy and I become irritated everytime I have to move the headrest (whether it's for cleabing purposes or because my child grew). Additionally, I am not a huge fan of the double clicking chest strap. I do like the material, and my childreb seem comfortable.

Easy to wash - super safe
We have had this seat for 3 years.It is well worth the price. It is safe and comfortable. I use the comfort wraps on the harness because my daughter has sensitive skin. The biggest thing for me is safety. Next, the "Cinch" Latch is worth having. This seat isn't sliding or going anywhere. Installation is easy. I do recommend using your knee in the seat when you are tightening it. Also, I love being able to zip off the material. So easy to clean throw up. I wish I could un-thread the straps to clean them but you cannot do that on this model. My daughter likes to sit cross legged and it is getting harder for her to do so in the seat, although she still fits and could stay in it another year. So I will upgrade to a MyFit LE.

Easy to install. Easy to tighten straps
Soooooo much easier to instal than your typical LATCH car seat. I literally have to sit and jump up and down and/or put my foot in the seat and push to get my daughters high back booster tight. What a pain!!!! This system is much easier. Tighten one side as much as you can and then pull down on the second strap. It's like a pulley so it is half the effort and I get a snug fit every time. I've installed this seat in my parents maxima, my husbands F150 and my Odyssey forward facing and rear facing. As for the shoulder straps, start with them loose. Either loosen them every time you get the child out or loosen them before putting them in. Buckle all the buckles. Put your hand non tightening hand under the chest clip and raise it a little off the kids chest so you have some tension. THEN pull the tightening strap. Its much easier to tighten this way. Raising it off the chest gives it a clear path for the slack to go in above the shoulders. Relying solely on the tightening strap is so much more friction. I didn't have trouble tightening straps even in rear facing. Be sure when installing in rear facing that you have the tail of the tightening strap in the car seat and it doesn't get pinned between the car seat and the vehicle seat. Because once you cinch down on the LATCH straps that seat is so snug you won't be able to get that tail out of there. It's that snug. The zip feature is great for easy clean up! Genius. After the first couple times getting it on and off the seat is super easy. Fabric cleans up nice. Thanks for making a great seat Chicco. Looking at a MyFit for my oldest.

Great seat
This is the 3rd Chicco convertible car seat we have purchased. I have also owned 2 of the keyfit 30s and the 1 of the kidfit booster seats. I love the convertible carseat for the middle weight range. I wish I had purched another convertible carseat instead of the booster because my son is small and I think the convertible fits him better. My kids are comfortable and have enjoyed their seats.
ProsEasy to install with a seatbelt, a little harder with the straps. Comfortable, good quality.
ConsCupholders could be improved.
Best UsesFor an infant who has outgrow the portable infant carrier. I like this for my 30lb 4 year old and my smaller toddler.

Great choice when graduating from the Chicco Keyfit 30
We purchased this carseat when our daughter outgrew the Chicco Keyfit 30 and have been incredibly happy! It's not small, however she absolutely loves her 'cockpit' as it's been lovingly deemed. Installing was quite easy, as was switching her from rear-facing to front-facing when she was 2 years old. She is of average weight and stature, and it seems like this carseat will still fit her for quite some time (she is almost 3 now). The construction is incredibly solid and it looks as new as when we first purchased. We're now expecting twins and will be purchasing these again when they are ready!

Kids enjoy riding in it
I've had this seat for a couple years now. Bought 2 (1 for each car) because the price was great. My daughter enjoys riding it the seat as much as can be expected. She would rather be running around outside and not stuck in the car. But she doesn't complain on short rides. The removable cup holder works great too. She can reach her sippy cup and when the cars full, I can remove it.
ProsWell padded good side protection easy to spot clean Easy to switch between cars
ConsHeavy Hard to clean fully for large spills

Quality seat but doesn't work well rear-facing
This carseat is a breeze to install, the fabric is heavy-duty, and I love how secure the seat gets. Right now I'm using the carseat in the rear-facing position. It is next to impossible to get the harness tightened from that angle. The seat is in the way, so you have to pull up on the strap instead of down and it's really hard to do. I went back to using her Chicco infant carrier as a carseat until I use this forward facing. I'm really disappointed.

Best car seat for our baby girl!
I love this car seat!! my daughter is currently 4 months and we decided to buy this convertible car seat instead of the typical infant car seat due to our previous experience with our son. We had spend a good amount of money on a infant car seat when I was pregnant with my son, just to switch to a convertible car seat by the time he was 6 months because he was getting to big for his seat. So this time, we decided to go straight to the convertible car seat. I did my homework and picked this one for my daughter. My daughter fit perfectly when she was a newborn, she would fall back to sleep as soon as you strap her in, and will not wake up during the ride. I feel more calm knowing she's is in a more secure in this car sear than a infant seat. It is heavy however I do not mind that at all!

Great seat overall
Love almost everything about this seat. I would even buy it again. My biggest complaint about the seat is that the zip feature makes it super easy to take out and wash, however the white plastic piping that runs around the seats edge is supposed to look like leather. Mine looks horrible after 2 years of washing it (not very often). It looks very worn. The white has worn off and is not very attractive anymore. The seat itself has a few stains, but other than that has stayed pretty stain free. I would recommend this seat on its ease of use rather than how it looks after 2 years. Had a Graco with my oldest son and it looks great still, however is not even close to being the caliber of seat this one is!

Great car seat
Not quite as nice as the NextFit Zip, but a great option for your second vehicle where you don't need all the features of the Zip. Same car seat as the Zip but the fabric and finish isn't quite as luxurious. Super easy to install, as well. You can be confident that your kid will be safe in this one!

Highly recommended
I've been using this car seat for a year, ever since my son was a newborn. It was the car seat we brought him home in from the hospital at 8 lbs. He's now 30 lbs and 31" at a year old and still rear-facing. Overall, the seats been amazing. The bubble level-indicators are great in ensuring the seat is properly level for your vehicle and the LATCH or seat belt installation options mean it can be installed in so many different vehicles. I was in a small accident where I was rear-ended and pushed into the vehicle in front of me so a double-impact accident. My son was in his car seat at the time and slept through the accident. I've never once felt my son was unsafe in his seat as it's very well-padded and, more importantly, very sturdy. Plenty of people thought I was crazy for opting out of an infant seat, but I never second-guessed my decision with the NextFit Zip. I've also washed it a couple of times since having it and it's a little tricky to get on and off the seat and the headrest cannot be washed, but being able to wash most of the material is a definite plus. When it comes time to purchase another seat for my second child, I will be purchasing another NextFit Zip, no questions asked.

My 4 year old is so happy with the comfort and color of this car seat! She told me she likes how if she falls askeep, her head doesn't roll all over. I agree because it's so sad to see a child in a car seat slumped over as it looks so uncomfortable! Very easy for my daughter to climb in and me tighten the straps.
