The NextFit Zip® also transitions smoothly from vehicle to vehicle and between modes thanks to premium LATCH connectors with click-on attachment and push-button release, plus a built-in slide path to re-position the LATCH strap for forward-facing mode.

DuoGuard® provides two layers of side-impact protection with a deep rigid shell and EPS energy-absorbing foam. The seat shell is also reinforced with a steel frame.

Love the Zip Feature
The zip feature is amazing. The seat is very comfortable and the install is easy as can be. The only thing I don't like is the high sides. Makes it more difficult to get my child in and buckle him.

BEST carseat!
We absolutely love the Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible carseat so much that we have 3 of them for all our kids!! They are very secure, comfortable, and we love the compact size and that they do not take over the car like other bulky carseats. Our toddlers are always eating in their carseats so the option to remove the lining and wash it is awesome. Would definitely recommend it to any parent

I purchased this seat to replace a seat that gave me difficulty pulling the strap tight. This one cinches up like a breeze! I donā€™t know why I waited so long to buy this! Itā€™s sturdy. Itā€™s high quality. It looks like it will be easy to zip the cover off to clean when the time comes. Iā€™m amazed at how easy this makes getting my daughter strapped in safely. Love this seat!
ProsEase of use High quality
ConsDoesn?t have clips for holding the straps out to the side while loading and unloading your child.

Best Option for Safety and Convenience
My husband and I purchased this car seat when our son grew out of his Chicco KeyFfit car seat. We've been incredibly pleased with the performance and safety features of this car seat. We love how easy it is to install in a variety of vehicles and the numerous recline positions make it quick to get the perfect fit no matter the seat angle. One of our favorite features is the ability to zip out the lining and wash it. This feature has come in very handy for the occasional accident and ensures we're able to keep the car seat clean and in good condition for continued use. Most importantly, the car seat is solid with high sides and a very secure fit, giving us confidence that our son is as safe as possible in our vehicles. This peace of mind is priceless as parents.

We've enjoyed this car seat so much that we're about to purchase a second one. I think we're going to give the Chicco NextFit Zip Air a try, it wasn't available when we made our original purchase but it looks like a great upgrade.

Excellent car seat all around - can't go wrong!

LOVE this car seat!
I bought this car seat for my son about 6 months ago. My son has cerebral palsy and it was hard to find a car seat that "fit" his special needs until we found this one! Best investment for so many reasons! Easy instillation, comfort and style. He can ride comfortably and my mind is at ease that he is safe! The feature of being able to zip off the shell of this car seat is also a huge plus!! So grateful in so many ways.

Easy installation
We have been using this seat for a few weeks now with our 4-year-old. This seat was by far the easiest seat I have ever installed because of the super cinch tighteners. I usually have to have my husband install the seats so they are nice and tight but with this seat I was easily able to get it nice and snug! Moving the straps are also very simple to do and the latch belt slides so it makes it easier to transition from rear to forward. There are compartments for the latch buckles to be stored in on each side, it would be nice if they were a little bigger but they are a great concept. The color is fun and It is great how the cover just zips off when you want to wash it. Our son loves the seat! He looks so comfortable (and safe) in it! I have used Chicco carseats for all my kids and I would recommend this seat to anyone looking! Chicco provided me with this seat in exchange for my honest opinion.

Excellent design, safety features and durability.
As soon as we opened the box my kids were amazed by the designed and look of the car seat; they claimed it look like a spaceship..and I couldn't agree more. The design is very appealing, my first thought was "WOW" this is amazing, if something were to happen, I can tell you she's gonna be fine- safety first and it definitely gives us parents peace of mind. It has a very smooth, clean design while providing you the safest design, great features and by far the easiest car seat I have ever installed. It has the ability to unzip the cover for easy wash or cleanup without having to try to clean between the hard to reach spaces. The reclining features is very useful and completely quiet unlike others I've tried. I do wish the buckle located between the legs was located a tiny bit towards the front or had a third slot to run it through closer to the front. It's truly not a dealbreaker at all.
The cup holder is very durable, removable (no, your LO won't be able to remove it lol) but the great thing is that you can attach it to the right or left side of the seat. The latch system is hands down THE best.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this product, my son has been begging me for a "green spaceship car seat" lol, so hopefully we can get him one as well; that's how much they loved it and how comfy it is. I do tell you, they get my vote for excellent customer service, design and execution, user friendly, extra features and above all, safety. Thank you so much!!!

Amazing Car seat
We have a 15 month old and using this car seat to transition from a carrier was very easy. This car seat was very easy to install. I was able to install and uninstall this car seat all by myself by using the latching system. I love the buttons the open and close the hooks on the latches. It makes it very easy to attach to the latch system within our car. I love the ability to unzip the car seat. My daughter makes a mess eating in the car and this makes for an easy clean up. I would recommend this car seat. The only thing I noticed is that t is a little hard to adjust the recliner once the car seat is latches in.

Love this car seat!
I got this car seat for my 9 month old daughter and my husband accidently installed it for my 2 year old and I have to say this car seat works excellent for both kids! Easy to install (and then reinstall) forward and rear facing. Easy to change seat positions. Straps are also very easily adjustable. In our old car seat it was hard to tighten the straps, but this seat allows for easy tightening. The fabric removes easily to wash. Both kids were very comfortable in this seat.

So easy!
So glad we found this carseat. It was simple to install and the juniper color is awesome. The strap system seems much easier to pull than other seats I've had in the past. I also love that I can easily unzip and wash the fabric outer shell for when my son makes a mess!

Perfect transition from baby carrier.
We just transitioned our 9 month old from her Chicco Keyfit 30 to the NextFit Zip Convertible car seat and she LOVES it. The super cinch tighteners make it a breeze to tighten and secure the car seat making it one of the easiest car seats I've ever installed. The adjustable headrest allows for the perfect 5-point harness fit and it can be adjusted while your child is sitting in the car seat. Our daughter has never been a fan of car seats. She would fight us to get strapped in and cry from begining to end of our trip. And when traveling long distances she would sweat in her infant carrier. Now when we put her in her NextFit Zip Convertible car seat she smiles and is a happy baby to get strapped in for a car ride and she comes out sweat free. Chicco provided this to me in exchange for my honest opinion.

Great fit for us!
My son LOVES this car seat. He was so excited about the color and we were so excited about the safety features. It was super easy to install which was important to me because I transfer car seats between my car and my mother in-laws. I also like how easy it is to adjust the tightness on the straps. The 9 point recline feature made it easy to find a comfortable position for my son while also giving room for his feet. Another great feature is the easy zip off pad so you can wash it, with a little boy this is important! I would definitely recommend this car seat to anyone looking for a safe, easy and appealing car seat.

Best car seat! Really!!
This car seat is amazing!! I have one for my 2 year old and I just switched over my 8 month old! It really is versatile! The LATCH system makes it so easy to install! I can even take it out of my van and install it in my husbands sedan or my moms Outback when she watches the kids.... all in 5 minutes! The Zipper is so convenient! I've washed mine twice and it has come out perfect! I've also just taken it off to vacuum out the seat and shake all the crumbs off! I love that the tightener is in the center, I can make sure my babies are secure with the best fit every time! Overall I would highly recommend this convertible car seat!

Chicco nextfit
I am very satisfied with my purchase! I have been researching carseats for about 2 months for my 5 month old. I found this to be the top rated carseat and now I understand why. This seat is very well constructed. I especially like that it has a steel frame. It has great padding and is very comfortable compared to other seats. It was very easy installation but I wouldn't want to move it from car to car because it is alittle on the heavier side. I am very pleased with the pricing and my overall shopping experience.

Not impressed with quality of padding
I bought these for my twins after loving the keyfits - after using for a short time they began pilling- and are filthy - I have washed them on gentle and hung to dry and are now falling apart - and they are not easy to take off and put back together - I purchased these with the intentions of being the only carseat we would need until they were in booster seats ...I thought wrong - and they charge $60-$80 for replacement covers - I think I will just buy a different brand carseat instead

Comfy but needs breathable fabric.
This car seat was recommended to me by my sister-in-law. Was just in time for a 5-hour trip. Our LO seems to be pretty comfy. I like that the cupholders are not built in. They just get nasty and hard to clean out. The only thing I do not like is that the fabric isn't breathable. Even with the air-conditioner on he always would be extra hot on his back and sweating. Maybe that is why they ended up discontinuing this model. I just purchased the Chicco Nextfit IX Zip Air Convertible Car Seat - Surf, which now has the breathable fabric. We will see if it really helps and makes a difference.
ProsVery comfy, best safety features, easy to install with the LockSure in my car or husbands truck.
ConsAlthough easy to install in my car and my husbands truck it is extremely difficult for me to install in my mothers Jeep Grand Charakee. Of course, that is the Jeeps fault, not the car seat.

Looked like a great carseat...
I genuinely loathe this carseat. I purchased this for my son after using the Keyfit. I liked the sounds of the features, it seemed like it was going to be so easy to install and adjust. Not the case. After reading the directions over and over and watching many YouTube videos, I still dont feel like I had the latch system properly installed; the seat NEVER feels snug. I've also been using this seat for less than a year and the fabric looks like it's been through ten kids, it's very worn and pilled with tiny little holes on the seat. It also takes up a lot of room. I have two other car seats by two other manufacturers, one in Grandmas car and one in Dad's truck, and I have no issues with either of those, they install very easily and the fabric isn't falling apart in either. I wish I had known what a pain this seat was going to be, I never would have purchased it.

Great Car seat, easy install!
We have really enjoyed this car seat. It is comfortable and cozy for my son to ride in. The zip off cover is genius and so handy for diaper mishaps in the car. The next fit is very easy to install with latch, and within just a few minutes you have a rock solid install. I will say the one downfall is the tall sides, this can make it harder for the child to see put and for a shorter parent to get the child in the car. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this car seat.

We love how easy to adjust and how clear it is that the car seat is installed correctly! I haven't had to use the zip off feature yet, but I'm so glad we have it for when the inevitable car seat blow out or puke fest comes our way. Someone had given us another car seat and after reading the instructions it was clear that we'd not feel comfortable verifying installation ourselves so we bought another one of these for our second car instead. That's how much we liked it....We had a free option, but wanted the certainty and ease of use of this instead. I will say that my husband drives an old car and with the shape of the back seat installation was tricky and it turned out that we couldn't have this seat in the middle of the backseat. We put it behind the driver's seat and it's more stable there. The customer support has been really helpful in talking us through getting the right fit too.
ProsEasy to install! Spot for instruction manual so you'll always have it when you need to reinstall My son seems to think it's comfy Multiple seating angles to suit your baby and car zip off cushion for easy cleaning
Consit's a little pricey, but worth it!

Great and Safe
I really like this carseat. The high sides make me feel like my child is secure and safe. It looks very comfortable. I thought it was incredibly easy to install with the click tight system. It's been really easy to clean with the zip off cover - necessary with a snacky kid! I took off one star because I feel like it's pretty bulky esp rear facing. In our smaller SUV my tall husband had a hard to impossible time adjusting his seat to comfort with the seat in the rear facing position. Otherwise it is a great seat!
ProsEasy to clean Easy to install Easy to adjust Safe and secure Comfortable
ConsBig esp rear facing in a smaller vehicle with a tall passenger or driver

Very happy with it!
We started using this car seat when our child turned 13 months. She sits very comfortably in it! We are very happy with the quality and we have peace of mind with the protection it offers. The color pattern is fun too! I also like that the buckle is padded so it's comfortable for her and easy to keep from her sitting on when putting her into the car seat. The fact that we can wash the cover is a huge plus.

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.

HEAVYduty carseat
I rave about Chicco to everyone I know! It's car seats are rated #1 in safety, and I can tell by how massiv this thing is. My back was injured when we first got it for my then 1-1/2-year-old, so I can't really tell you if I am able to lift this thing into my suburban =/ but from what I heard from everyone who moved it around for me, It's HEAVY!!! It's also bulky but this seat fits alongside a fit2 car seat and myself in my second row, so be sure you have room in your car before purchasing.I'm glad that my daughter stopped protesting about being rear-facing in her carseat the moment she tried this seat out because she was able to see out of every rear window while in this seat; she is highly entertained. My big girl will be 3 years old next month, is still rear-facing at about 30 lbs, and still looks forward to every car trip.I can't really tell you much about the cup holder, since I lost track of mine as soon as we unboxed it =/ but it looked cool.
Prossturdy, rated #1 in safety, can be used rear-facing past 2 years of age.
ConsMy sister-in-law complained about the price point for this brand, because you can get a different manufacturer's car seat for less than $100.
Best Usesrear-facing, forward facing.

Great car seat for a great price!
After weeks of research we finally decided to go with the Chicco Nextfit Zip, and this was by far the best price we found anywhere! Plus I love that there were different color options, every other place we checked only had black or grey and I'm a big fan of navy blue so this was perfect. The fabric looks even better in person, it's very soft and my baby loves sitting in it. I've read other reviews where people complained about the high sides, but they aren't a problem for me. I like knowing that my baby is safe and well protected, and it's really not that hard to get her in and out, and once she's forward facing I'm sure it'll be even easier.

Chicco nextfit zip AWESOME!
Great car seat, yes its a little difficult to adjust they straps by making them loose or tight but its a great seat. I got it for my 6 month old who is 22 pounds and the chicco keyfit 30 was just no longer working for her. I love this car seat and its so sung and cozy for my daughter.
ProsCozy like a big comfy hug lol Very safe and the officer I had install it at a car seat class said itā€™s a great seat and he called it a cacoon of safety.
ConsItā€™s heavy but I like that because it feels safe Itā€™s big but Had to adjust and that was hard but I didnā€™t really care

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.

Great Carseat
I love the design/colors of the Privata Nextfit Zip. It was super easy to install and the zip features is worth its weight in gold. This is the second Nextfit Zip I have purchased and will continue to recommend it to friends with little ones. Both of my children are on the petite side and they fit great.
