    My daughter has been using this seat for two years and it’s great! She is 3 and still able to rear face in it. I love how simple it is to clean. Just unzip the fabric and into the washer it goes! May 18, 2020

    It is very big and bulky. The install is not very easy. It seems safe, but there has to be better options out there. Apr 29, 2020

  • We LOVE this car seat! So easy to install, use, and clean! It also seems very comfortable. We have had this car seat for 2 years now, and it still looks like new, and trust me it’s been through a lot! Apr 06, 2020

  • This car seat has to be one of the best investments that I have made in baby gear! I purchased this car seat in 2018 and still have it! The cloth material is cooling and easy to clean. I Mar 22, 2020

  • Love this seat! Easy install and super easy to just zip off and throw in the wash. Mar 16, 2020

  • This zip off fabric is the best invention!!! And the adjustable back is great for switching between kids like when my friend with a much older son picked me up from the airport with my son. Mar 08, 2020

    We have 2 & they are worth the extra cost to be able to easily unzip and toss into the wash without ever having to install the base. The fabric and cushioning is plush, too! So comfy & safe. Feb 20, 2020

  • Love it Feb 19, 2020

  • Love how easy this seat is to install and wash! Feb 18, 2020

  • Loved this seat but seemed to get small fast. Super easy to harness and latch Feb 13, 2020

  • I love this car seat because I felt that my daughter is really safe when she is in it. I got the zip version and it is easy to clean. Downside, very heavy. But overall a sturdy and reliable car seat. Feb 12, 2020

  • Owned it, used it and ditched it after a few weeks of use. It's incredibly bulky and the cover is difficult to remove and reattach. Feb 06, 2020

  • Eacy to clean move and snug Feb 04, 2020

  • Love this carseat! The install was a breeze and tightening the straps has never been easier. My daughter looks so comfy in it and she doesn't mind being buckled in. Jan 30, 2020

    The Zip option has been a lifesaver!! Jan 19, 2020

  • LOVE this seat. Provides most space to front seat passenger in Subaru. Straps don't cause frustration with twisting; my 15-month old seems VERY comfortable! Washing is a breeze with fit zip! Jan 19, 2020

  • We have two (for 2yo and 4yo) - it fits both so well! Multiple settings for seat comfort, super easy to unzip and throw cover in washing machine, and seats are very breathable. Jan 13, 2020

  • Its one of the only convertible seats that fit in compact cars with allowing leg room! The zip makes it a breeze to clean and most importantly it offers a solid one piece base. Less parts the better! Jan 09, 2020

    We bought this, only to return it. The sides were too high, and getting our baby in and out meant hitting his head on the roof. Jan 03, 2020

  • I love this car seat, mainly because of how easy it is to clean the car seat cover! It is also very easy to i stall. It does take up a lot of room, so be careful if you have a small back seat. Jan 01, 2020

  • We’ve had multiple barfing incidents, and the removable part of the car seat is a blessing. Easy to take out after looking at a video, and putting back in. Comfortable and very padded. Dec 26, 2019

  • SO easy to install and comfortable for my 2 year old. It is also a great size for a compact car to an SUV. Dec 09, 2019

    Latch system with easy cinch makes installation a breeze. I currently own 2, and have installed in a new model Ford fusion, expedition, and F350 without sacrificing front seat adjustability. Dec 09, 2019

  • I purchased this based on crash test ratings. It's quite heavy and I wouldn't recommend it for travel. It's fairly easy to use but I have a hard time tightening it after months of use. Dec 03, 2019

  • Bought these for our twins when they put grew infant car seats. Love the ease of unzipping and washing fabric but after too many accidents in the car the base has a smell that won’t go away. Nov 23, 2019

  • I bought this car seat when my son was ready to move up from the Fit2. It's super easy to install, so I can move it to different vehicles with ease. I love that it adjusts to grow with my toddler. Nov 04, 2019

  • I bought this for my parents car and I use britax normally but got this for a good price! It is comfy for my little and is very secure. The installation is not as easy as britax though! Oct 27, 2019

Everyone
  • Q: Has anyone used the NextFit Zip in hot weather? I am considering buying it for my LO to transition out of his carrier. I love the idea of easy removal of the cover for washing, but am concerned the zipper track and the surrounding edge of material will got hot to the touch versus the non-zip model.

    asked by Christina H. - Oct 13, 2015

  • Never gets all that hot here in San Francisco but I will say that I think the highly padded nature of this seat does cause it to run warm--I noticed that the back of my kid was often warm/sweaty when I pulled her out, even after relatively short rides. I wouldn't worry about the zipper per se but if you're in a very hot climate, you may want to consider a less cushy/padded seat.

    Auburn D. - Oct 13, 2015

  • I live in Florida, and I haven't even noticed if the zipper gets hot or not. The zipper has some threading on it, which I think would help reduce a direct touch, and the zipper is coated. The metal clasps on the belt do get hot, but I am usually able to get my daughter in the seat without her touching them.

  • We are in Houston and haven't had any trouble with the zipper

    Calista T. - Oct 14, 2015

  • I live in MD and it gets pretty hot here in the summer. I've not ever noticed the zipper getting hot; the metal clips get hot but not the zipper! DEFINTELY recommend this seat, it's worth it the first time they have an accident or spill the contents of a pouch all over!
