The NextFit iX features a nine-position ReclineSure leveling system and two RideRight bubble level-indicators to help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. With more recline options than any other convertible, ReclineSure is designed to accommodate a wider range of vehicles in both rear-facing and forward-facing modes. For installation with LATCH, premium connectors and a SuperCinch force-multiplying tightener help achieve a secure fit with a fraction of the effort. For installation with the vehicle seatbelt, newly redesigned lock-offs with LockSure technology make it easy to position, tighten and lock the belt into place.

NextFit iX is built to grow from newborn through preschool with easy-to-use adjustability to accommodate every stage, including smooth one-hand headrest adjustment with nine positions. As the headrest is raised, the harness shoulder strap position auto-adjusts in height and width to accommodate growing children without re-threading. The 5-point harness also features a one-pull, force-multiplying tightener and removable, machine-washable shoulder pads. For easier in/out, NextFit iX Zip is also equipped with a padded ComfortFlex harness management system that holds both sides of the waist belt out of the way until the child is ready to be buckled. An integrated slide path makes it easy to re-position the LATCH strap when it's time to switch from rear-facing to forward-facing.

I ordered two of these Chicco Nextfit Zip because of the reviews. Not only is this car seat ranked top of consumer reports but this Chicco is super comfortable. This seat is a little bulky but we love how safe and comfortable it is.

Very happen with Chicco. I loved using the infant seat and love the nextfit convertible seat too. Very smooth in and and when dealing with the straps. Super easy latch system that I love. I got the model with the easy zip off fabric and it has came in handy after car sickness. Definitely reccomend this seat
ProsEasy Zip off fabric Smooth tightening and loosening straps Latch system is great Lots of recline positions
ConsA bit heavy.. but a great seat

This seems like a nice transition seat from the infant carrier; it still cradles and reclines about as much. We had to put it on the most incline to keep baby's chin from not being on her chest - so I hope that will improve as she gets taller and not be a problem. I also worry she'll be too tall soon, but I read this one's supposed to be good for taller torso kids so here's hoping!

We love our Chico Nextfit Zips! They are so easy to unzip and throw in the wash. They are crazy heavy so I wouldnít recommend traveling with them but they are wonderfully comfortable to have permanently installed in your car.

This car seat was very east to install with the super cinch latch.
The padding was very plush and seemed comfortable.
I have to move my car seats out of my car sometimes for work and this car seat is extremely heavy.
If you have to move it a lot I would not recommend it.
I also found that the high sides made it more difficult to get my son in rear facing in this car seat.
The cupholder on this seat is also a joke. It doesn't hold my son's cups and for a $200+ car seat I feel like they could have provided a better cupholder.
ProsEasy Installation Comfortable Fabric Easy to take the cover off and wash
ConsHigh Sides make it difficult to rear face Heavy if you have to move it from car to car Cupholder
By Christina
Awesome car seat
April 21, 2019
Easy latch installation, love that it has the zipper to make it easy to remove and wash. My only negative is that the seatbelt harness installation is hard to do. But if you plan on using the latch system then you donít have to worry about that.
By Crystal
Happy baby!
April 20, 2019
Heavy and bulky with high sides but I prefer the added protection which is why I went with this seat over the Britax Boulevard. Zip feature is amazing. I also love that it has a storage compartment for the manual. Strap covers have nice cushion to them. Also, a TON of recline options! And the best thing; the install! Extremely easy. I canít even express it enough how easy it truly is.

Great Car Seat
March 27, 2019
I love this car seat. We decided we needed a car seat in my husband's car as well now that the little man is in daycare so we branched out from our Maxi-Cosi and I'm so happy we did. This car seat takes up less leg room from the front passenger seat which is a plus in a mini cooper countryman. The straps are easy to tighten and loosen and the installation is very easy and you know you're doing it right with the levels on each side. I absolutely love the look of the Eclipse color that I just found out is discontinued, but none-the-less we are looking to purchase a second version of this now that our son is growing out of the original Maxi-Cosi seat. Highly recommend.
ConsI wish it had some sort of shade or something to add for more sun protection.

Amazing quality product
March 17, 2019
We purchased this car seat because I knew it, I trust it! We have one already!
This is the car seat for our second child, this is an amazing seat, I like it very much, because of its reclining options and that it can be easily unzipped to be washed, itís the best purchase ever, a great investment!
ProsReclining options Easy unzipping (for washing) Safe Quality product
By Jackline
Very good quality and easy to be adjusted
March 17, 2019
I like the car seat in general as it so easy to be adjusted, it fitted our baby from day 1, now we changed the position slightly since he is 3 months, he enjoys it
The only thing that i didnt like much, is that itís bulky or at least bulky for our, so if you have small car better to try it first

Great Car Seat!!
March 13, 2019
We replaced our other car seat because it was expired & bought this one. Our other car seat never felt super sucure when it was rear facing. I love this car seat! Super snug fit, easy to install, & very comfortable! Worth every penny!! I would definitely recommend!! Also, super fast delivery!
ProsSafe Secure Snug fit Very comfortable Easy to install Easy to unzip to clean
ConsNone so far!
So far so good
March 1, 2019
We haven't had it more than a couple of weeks but so far so good. I think we are stunned at how much larger convertible seats are compared to the infant seat we had. This one is well made, easy to install, and probably wouldn't seem too large if we had a bigger car. (We have a VW wagon and I know some of you probably have an SUV). The straps are a little hard to clip and snug up. That's why I'm not giving it 5 stars.

This is the 4th carseat I've bought from Albees originally the keyfit 30 and now 3 nextfit seats. Initial one for my daughter for our grandson. My husband and I keep our grandson during the week and we initially thought we could share one seat and move between our vehicles. The price break allowed me to purchase the 3rd. Love it.

Chicco Nextfit ZIP
January 21, 2019
Extremely easy to install. My 14 month old has used it for the past four months and she's very comfortable in it. Also, easy to unzip and wash (which we've already had to do). The only con is that it's hard to get the zipper connected when putting the cover back on. My husband had to help me. Not bad enough to deduct a star though. It is a larger carseat but worth the extra space it takes up and super easy to put the baby into.

Newest Addition to our Chicco Family
January 2, 2019
Our family started using Chicco back in 2015 which included the Bravo travel system, then come 2016, we added 2 NextFit Zips. We welcomed another son in 2018 and shortly before we were going to switch him into one of the NextFit Zips, the car was totaled and we lost some of our gear. I found the IX Zip and bought it around Black Friday and it arrived within a few days. Just as our older generation NextFit, this one was super easy to install. Our youngest suffers from motion sickness on a regular basis and the cover is easy to get off and clean up. I honestly think the straps are easier to adjust than the older models and I like that the chest clip is click and go rather than the older 2-setting feature.
Pros?Straps are east to tighten/loosen ?Great leveling system ?Low maintenance cleaning ?Great LATCH system ?Soft, comfortable cushioning
Cons?Pretty bulky, therefore hard to carry from car to house, car to car, etc.
By Totoro
Fast Holiday Shipping & Would (did) buy again
December 27, 2018
This is my second Nextfit IX ZIP and I like it. Looks like a first class airline seat for my daughter. The sync cord to tighten the harness keeping my tolder in seems to be shorter than the first IX ZIP I bought at another retailer but it is not a problem.

I like this seat better than the britix version because the harness release button that keeps your tolder in is not recessed into the base soo much that it is hard to release the slack on a daily basis. I feel the included cup holder is on the smallish side though.

Best Car Seat
December 17, 2018
This is the best car seat! Itís very easy to install and switch between cars. It is a little bulky but not hard to move. My child is very comfortable in it and I love that we can use it rear facing and then switch to forward when the time comes. The zip off cover is very easy to remove and put back on. I love all of Chicco products!

Best convertible car seat
December 9, 2018
This was my second purchase for a Chicco Nextfit zip car seat ready for baby number 2. My first baby hated being in the infant car seats so at about 6months we switched her to the chicco nextfit and travelling with her in the car was suddenly so much easier. Ilove how easy it is to clean but just unzipping it, I love that you don't have to unthread all the straps as the baby grows and it's great being able to keep her rear facing for so long. I managed to buy this one for a great price here on albee baby and am excited to start using it for my second child.

The Chicco Nextfit is a solid carseat! I love all the padding to keep my daughter comfortable and safe. It was so easy to install and adjust to fit my daughter's size and also my vehicle. The compartments to keep the Latch tethers from hanging all over when not needed is a great feature! I would recommend this seat to anyone!

Kid loves it, just one hiccup
October 3, 2018
The seat is great. The instructions for install are fairly confusing and the pictures donít actually provide much help. There is such a thing as too much information.
My kid looks comfortable and snug, but it is hard/awakard to lift him up and over and get him in it. Slight lack of thought when making the side angle of the seat. . Perhaps itís just the rear facing that is more challenging and once he is forward facing it will be easier. Overall, itís great and I feel that he is safe. I do miss any type of cover from the sun but overall, great buy.
ProsSafety. Comfort
ConsEase of getting baby in. Lack of sun screen or cover.

Comfortable and Safe
August 4, 2018
I love how easy it was to install right out of the box. We had the original Nextfit with my first child and new I wanted the newer zip version when our second was ready to transition into a convertible. It feels sturdy and very safe. The fabric is soft to the touch and my baby who just outgrew infant seat seems comfortable in the cushioned seat. The new seatbelt holders make it a breeze to get baby in and out from buckles. I look forward to the easy unzipping for cleaning in the future. I would highly recommend the Nextfit Zip!
ProsComfortable, soft, safety features, easy installation, easy recline option.
ConsDifficult to tighten latch while rear facing.

Baby looks comfortable
August 3, 2018
We chose it because of its higher backward weight limit, and we are happy with the product.
ProsLove the soft surface and overall good support. The color is beautiful. The several cushions on the belts make baby more comfortable.
ConsThe bottom of the neck/head support seems to lie in middle of baby's head, not sure whether she is bothered by this part. Though the 9 reclining positions, the seat seems not at the ideal angle, since the indicator is not at the perfect middle position.
By James
Even more improved than last version.
July 26, 2018
I have an older version of Nextfit Zip and purchased this for another car.
There were minor improvements but they are even more comfortable. Last one was great but it is better!
My 2 year old daughter is still rear-facing but she is totally enjoying this car seat. She loves to ride!
ProsGood seat. Comfortable. Looks very safe
ConsLittle heavy to carry around in the car seat cover.
Best UsesRoad trip!

Clean looking, easy to clean, and install
July 22, 2018
We bought this based off consumer reports and other reviews. We really like that this model is easy to clean and install. We have the latch system for our infant seat and enjoyed using it over messing with the seat beats, so that was a big plus.

Overall, we are really happy with this carseat and likely buy second one.

The other two we seriously considered (did not buy).

Britax Boulevard Click-tight - Did not like the click tight system over the latch system. We thought the car seat in general did not look as "clean". We did like the reviews and cool fabric option.

Nuna RAVA - Also seatbelt option only. Does look really nice, but seems hot for Arizona. Also, the otters reviews had you removing half the pads to make useable and clean was difficult (but these were other reviews). Also the most expensive.
ProsVERY EASY to clean LATCH system - we prefer over messing with seatbelts. Overall - nice appearance.
ConsAdjusting the incline is difficult once installed (rear facing)
