Great convertible car seat
May 8, 2024
I love this car seat. It was easy to install, easy to adjust the fit and easy to clean with the zip off feature. I feel confident that my child is well protected in this seat. I also like the extended rear facing maximum.

I have been a loyal chicco customer for a really long time. I have a 1 to 21 year old spread over 7 kids, so I really mean a lot time. They always are the best products and the nextfit is super easy to install, traditionally, I bought two of these seats to replace older nextfits that had expired, and I'm not super happy about these. They are 1. Harder to install, I do not know why because it's the same exact system 2. The crotch buckle slot even on farthest put is still under my small 4 year olds butt, which makes it harder to buckle and more uncomfortable looking to me, I contacted chicco and they said they did not change that aspect of the shell, except to add the extra legroom, so that must be the connection? Idk but it affects how he sits somehow to make the buckle not great positioning.
3. On the phone the customer service person tried to just tell me to put him in a forward facing only carseat made by chicco, but that doesn't work for our family, cost wise or planning wise as we pass carseats down. And is frustrating because they market the nextfit max as being extended rear facing AND more comfortable forward facing w the extra legroom. So now, I can't return to albee because we've used it, but honestly I would have just bought the regular nextfits (not the max, which cost more) because the Max's aren't doing what I thought they would be, they are not as easy to use or as functional, which defeats the purpose of upgrading. So now I am seemingly stuck w these for the next 8 years:( the regular, cheaper nextfit is amazing and if you read this review, buy that instead, they are so much more versatile, functional, and therefore serve families longer
  • Look nice. Padding is easy to deal with on and off.
  • Good for smaller babies/toddlers who are rear facing.
  • Easy to install rear facing
Best Uses
  • Rear facing only
  • Forward facing crotch buckle underneath 38 lb. Smaller 4 year olds butt even on farthest out setting.
  • Harder to install then regular nextfit forward facing

Best Convertible Car Seat
October 25, 2023
We just moved our youngest child from an infant seat into a convertible car seat and it was a no-brained to buy this seat for her. My two older kids both used these seats and they never complained of being uncomfortable, sat rear-facing longer in this seat than the one we picked out for our other car and it has fantastic safety ratings. The cover is easy to take off and wash and since we live in a hot climate the cooling fabric is a huge plus. I have zero complaints, we love this seat!
  • Easy to wash cover, very comfortable, lots of recline positions, safe and secure install.

Love how easy this seat is to install. So simple to clean. And it has great rear-facing limits. We have 3 of them now, after going through our fair share of expensive nuna, britax, and graco seats, and I can't recommend the Chicco enough!

Our 3rd Chico Nextfit Zip Chair and no complaints
August 21, 2023
I have 2 other Chicco NextFit Zip Chairs. One is Nextfit Max Zip and One is Nexfit Zip so getting Nextfit Max Air Zip was exciting to try. So far no complaints or issues with the chair! My husband installed easily and we are using it with my rear facing almost 3 year old. With our other zip chairs, the zip right off to wash is amazing so glad to have the feature again.
  • -Zip cover
  • -Easy Install
  • -Look
  • -Feel sturdy and safe
Best Uses
  • I live in a really warm area so it's nice having the air option.
  • -No where to put the straps while putting in (no little hole/spot)

Good seat for the price
July 5, 2023
It's a nice sturdy car seat. It was very easy to install. We're in the hot Texas heat and we have our son rear-facing. I'm not sure anything could make it not hot here, but we don't notice any excess sweating in the car seat. It has sides that stick out further than some of our car seats so if your child isn't a great climber and you have to put them in it, it could be a little more cumbersome. Our son is four so it's easy for him to climb in and out of himself. He still fits very comfortably in it so I anticipate a couple more years use out of it. (We will rear face until we max out the specifications, and then do the same forward facing.) Compared to our prior seat, I find us digging for the buckles after he's in it every time so I can latch the bottom clip, which is annoying. But it's much easier to tighten once he's in it than some of our prior car seats. Overall, I recommend and am happy with the purchase.

Great seat
May 2, 2023
We own two of these now - bought the first one almost two years ago and will be buying a third soon for the next kid. This seat has been great, easy to install and the fact that the whole seat cover zips off to go in the wash is so nice. My toddler recently threw up in his seat after having too much fun at a school pizza party and my car would probably still smell like pizza vomit if I hadn't been able to wash the seat.

Easy install, comfortable but heavy
April 4, 2023
This is a great seat. Install was pretty simple, it fits well in our Ford Transit, and seems to truly work well for a variety of sizes. The only reason for 4 stars is that the wrong seat was sent initially. It was frustrating to have to ship the seat back and wait for the correct one to arrive, but it was a fairly smooth process.
  • Sturdy, comfortable
  • Very heavy

I love this car seat super easy to latch in and to take the cover off to wash. I don’t even have to take to car seat out of the car or unhook it to wash the cover. Planning on buying 5point harness booster zip version to upgrade my son with now.

My 7 month old hated her old car seat so we got this one and she seems so much more comfortable now! She always got hot in her older car seat, so this is great with its ventilation!

Love this seat

We bought this seat after retuning the britax one4life and love it. The seat is super easy to install and our child rides very comfortable in it. My only complaint is the button to release the harness is slightly hard to push. I was very hesitant on getting this seat after reading the sides are tall and it’s hard to get your child in but I don’t feel like it’s hard to get her in the seat at all

Easy Peasy ... except for infants
September 7, 2021
Easy is the best way to describe this carseat.
Easy install. Easy to get your kids buckled properly and passing the pinch test. Mega bonus that its easy to clean as well. I washed and dried this and then had everything put back together within a few hours of throwing it in the wash. My Graco extend-to-fits took me a couple days to clean. Between pulling 3 carseats apart, washing, drip drying and figuring out how to put it all back... just so much time and planning involve, I couldn't stand it!
That is not the case with these seats.
I purchased 3 of these at once. I have a 4 and 3 year old as well as a 4 month old.
I do not like the infant insert which is why I rated this 4 stars. I put my baby back in the old Graco SnugLock carseat, until this seat is useable.
When my baby was in this seat with the insert, it looked as though the spine and belly were arching and extended too far. It looked so uncomfortable.. and the baby cries/screams confirmed that something just wasnt working out. This very well could he user error. However, I read the manual and have more than just your average understanding of carseat safety and proper installing. I installed on a flat surface. The bubble in the level was where it should be. The seat didnt move more than an inch after install and the shoulder straps were positioned slightly lower than the shoulders for rear facing. I couldnt figure how to fix if and my baby wasnt big enough go just remove the insert all together.
Other than that, this seat is perfect. I am immensely enjoying the extra time not wasted on carseat care and buckling. It adds up as a busy mom.
  • So ready to install and clean. Nice sleek design.
  • Infant insert made my baby arch and extend the belly too far. Baby was definitely uncomfortable and let me know it.
