Bout these 3 years ago and they are still in good condition. I will be replacing these with seats that are less wide because I had a surprise baby and entering into the world of 3 in a row car seats - wish me luck :)

I love this car seat. Itís been the easiest to install and switch from car to car with the super clincher latch option. Zip off to wash the cover is great too. Big fan!

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
  • Easy Zip off fabric
  • Smooth tightening and loosening straps
  • Latch system is great
  • Lots of recline positions
  • A bit heavy.. but a great seat
So far, so good!

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!

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.
  • Easy Installation
  • Comfortable Fabric
  • Easy to take the cover off and wash
  • High Sides make it difficult to rear face
  • Heavy if you have to move it from car to car
  • Cupholder

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.
Happy baby!

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
By Erika

Verified Buyer
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.
  • I wish it had some sort of shade or something to add for more sun protection.
My toddler and infant absolutely love this car seat. They are very content and comfortable. It also feels secure and safe for them. 5 stars

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
By Julianne

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
By Allie P.
from Frederick, Maryland
on January 2, 2019
Verified Buyer
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.

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.

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.

Kid loves it, just one hiccup
By Kellye

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.
  • Safety.
  • Comfort
  • Ease of getting baby in.
  • Lack of sun screen or cover.

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!

Baby looks comfortable

We chose it because of its higher backward weight limit, and we are happy with the product.
  • Love the soft surface and overall good support.
  • The color is beautiful.
  • The several cushions on the belts make baby more comfortable.
  • The 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.

It's certified for aircraft travel
From Chicco: NextFit√‚¬ģ car seats are certified for usage on an aircraft (FAA approved.) In addition, if you'd like to check them as baggage, most airlines will allow you to check in the car seat free-standing! You should not be required to put the car seat in a bag. We recommend you check with your airlines.
