    Have for both of our kids they are so comfortable! Easy latch install and seat belt easy too once they get bigger. The zip-off feature is so great for spills or accidents! Love this seat. Dec 14, 2023

  • Loved everything about this seat. Spacious, full recline for sleeping baby no neck pain. Protection. Love how easy it is to remove padding for washing. Nov 04, 2023

  • This carseat is heavy, but it is such an easy install! My one complaint is about the cupholder, it just doesn't want to stay on easily and can be bumped off. Oct 04, 2023

  • Was so excited when they added a zipper! Already loved the previous versions but the new zipper definitely makes it easier to clean! Aug 23, 2023

  • Loved the easy clean and all the different adjustments for recline only thing I wished is they made a rotating one Jun 07, 2023

  • Amazing car seat. So sturdy and secure. Very comfortable for baby! May 21, 2023

  • Great seat! We had two in my vehicle and two in hubbys vehicle. Kiddos never complained about being in their seat. Apr 14, 2023

  • THE BEST!!! Washes so easy and my kiddo looks so comfy in it. Apr 02, 2023

  • Love that the padding is washable!! A game changer for us. Our daughter would spill her bottle in here and we could easily remove the padding and throw in washer. No stinky car seat! Mar 09, 2023

  • love. this seat is easy to install, easy to clean. it is really heavy, so it may not be right for you if you have to carry it around. but I love this and would buy it again (and have) Mar 07, 2023

  • I have had several different models of convertible car seats and will never by something other than Chicco Next Fit Zip. 100x better than any others I have used. It is so easy to install and clean! Feb 16, 2023

  • Super heavy/ bulky, but like that the cover zips off for wash. cup holder is hard for little ones to reach. This seat has some of the highest limits for height & weight- it is a great all around seat. Jan 19, 2023

    This is a great budget-friendly seat. Very easy to clean and install, and many recline positions. It's also easy to tighten the harness. The sides are pretty high, so it is a little tough to load LO Nov 30, 2022

  • Love that you can zip off the cover for easy cleaning. This is a must have feature! May 25, 2022

  • Love that it is so easy to take on and off. Perfect for those messy potty training age and messy baby food. It's well built and sturdy and has different reclining level. Apr 16, 2022

  • I have the zip and it's so easy to remove and wash! Mar 28, 2022

  • One of the few convertible seats that will fit well in our double cab Tacoma. Kind of a pain to put the baby in (he has to ride in the middle seat) but worth it for the extra space. Cushy seat also. Mar 17, 2022

    The Chicco Next Fit Zip is a great convertible car seat. I love how easy it is to remove the cover for washing. Another feature that is amazing is the different recline levels lever. Jan 20, 2022

  • Easy to remove padding for washing machine. Not so good if child gets car sick and pukes everywhere. Then the whole thing has to come off. Dec 01, 2021

  • We have the regular version and this. Love the ease of cleaning the cover of this version! Nov 22, 2021

    I used this birth through booster. It is large, but I LOVE that it unzips for washing. It is very easy to use and recline as well if needed. Nov 19, 2021

  • Love how secure baby feels in the seat and the seat is VEDY easy to install however it can be hard to get baby into it if your vehicle is higher up Oct 29, 2021

  • The zip is essential, so easy to quick unzip and vacuum all the crunched up snacks that fell in the seatbelt holes, washing is a breeze and you don’t have to mess with uninstalling or hooks etc Sep 20, 2021

    Used this with my first baby and loved it so much. It is so plush and comfy he never complained on long 6+he trips to see grandma. Never go with out the easy zip off feature. It is worth it every time Aug 30, 2021

  • I’ve got 2 of these and really love them. Not a complete pain to install, super easy to clean, sit up tall enough so my toddler can see out the window and they’re adjustable enough to last us years! Jul 23, 2021

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!
