  • I recently had to wash the cover off of this for the first and was dreading it but it was incredibly easy to get on and off! Im confident this seat is safe and now that it’ll always be clean too! Sep 12, 2019

  • This is by far my favorite car seat! I love how easy it was to clean yet it is on the bulky side. Hate we was in a car wreck and no longer have this seat. Sep 11, 2019

    Loved my nextfit and now I love the nextfit zip! Easy to install and get a good safe fit and now easy to clean as well with the zip cover. I also like that you can tuck away the cup holder. Sep 11, 2019

  • We have 3 and we love it! We even took one with us to Hawaii because we wanted our little one to be comfortable while we drove around there. Being able to unzip and wash these is a bonus! Aug 29, 2019

  • It's so easy to take the cover off of this carseat and just throw it in the wash! We let our toddler eat in the car and there's always a mess because of that so we love that this comes off so easily! Aug 28, 2019

  • I love Chicco and its track record for safety. It's a plus that it's washable, comfortable, and could be used for my next baby while our firstborn transitions to the next level car seat. Aug 22, 2019

  • Great convertible car seat. Child sits very comfortably. Used it with my second child as well. Can be used since birth. It is easy to install as well and no need to thread the harness. Aug 18, 2019

  • I love how easy it is to take fabric off to clean. Jul 29, 2019

  • I want to love love this. It was easy to install and my little guy is comfortable and seems safe. The cup holder doesn’t fit most cups and the fabric is harder than expected to get off and clean. Jul 18, 2019

    LOVE IT! So easy to take apart and wash! And super durable fabric. Mine is 3 yo now and looks new!. Easy to install is the big plus here! Zippers make it easy to take apart and clean. Jul 06, 2019

  • We have the Max Air version of this car seat and love it! Keeps our LO cool and comfortable for longer car rides. Rear facing til 50 lbs which is a huge plus for us. Jul 02, 2019

  • Second favorite seat it's a little more bulky , has deeper sides and has C shape so compared to my Britax Boulevard it's second place but compared to a lot of other convertibles it's a great seat! Jun 18, 2019

  • The zip off part makes it worth the extra money. Machine washable makes it a lifesaver. Jun 10, 2019

  • Super comfy carseat that is rated amazingly well for safety. I love that you can unzip the cover and wash it. We let our kiddo eat in the car, so... Jun 05, 2019

  • I love the ease of cleaning this! More importantly the deep seat seems much safer for the small babies, and even my big ones closer top the limit enjoy the comfort. It is narrow for bigger kiddos. May 20, 2019

    I love this car seat. Zip off cover is great, fabric holds up well. My son is very comforable in it. Easy to install well. Recline options limited when rear facing in Chrysler Pacifica captains seats. May 05, 2019

  • Sleek, easy to install, easy to clean, easy to adjust and above all SAFE! What more can you ask for? Apr 18, 2019

    Best convertible car seat! It has the cinch tight LATCH connectors that are a breeze to install. Zip off cover is easy to remove/attach which is great for cleaning. My son seems very comfy in it! Mar 21, 2019

  • I have one of the first generations of this seat and still using for my daughter. It is approaching the expiration so I’d love to replace with this newer style for both my 2 year old and newborn. Mar 21, 2019

  • I love chicco products and this one does not disappoint. Super easy to install which sealed the deal for us. We like the swap seat; LO is much more comfortable in it compared to the graco one we had. Mar 18, 2019

  • Great safety ratings plus the ease of zipping off the fabric for easy washing makes this car seat perfect for everyone! My daughter loves it and is super comfortable in it! Mar 10, 2019

  • Pros: I love that it's easy to take off the cover with the zipper. The design is very simple and like the neutral colors. It's super easy to latch and very stable. I like the 9 reclining option! Feb 25, 2019

    This carseat fits in my Honda HR-V but barely. I love that the cover zips off to be cleaned. I'll buy another one for my second baby. Feb 02, 2019

  • Love the zip feature for easy cleaning! seems comfy too. Jan 27, 2019

  • I absolutely love the style and the size of this car seat as well as the reclining positions. I tried another car seat first but this one by far is the BEST!!! Compact and comfortable. Jan 20, 2019

  • Super comfortable for the kids. Easy to clean since the cover can be taken off, BUT the zippers look like they don't hold so many unzips. Jan 07, 2019

  • The install for this is so easy and the zip off cover is amazing! This seat is my all time favorite! Jan 05, 2019

  • LOVE how protected my child is in this car seat! And so easy to clean! He is still rear facing at 3 years old too! negative is that it’s pretty heavy and the straps don’t tighten very easy Jan 04, 2019

  • Easy to adjust straps (no rethreading) and install in car. Gets excellent safety rating from consumer reports. The zip off cover feature is worth the extra $, totally frustration free. Jan 01, 2019

  • I bought this when our car seat at the time was expiring! Pros: zip off cover makes it so much easier to clean! Con: cup holder falls off all the time and is too little to fit most sippy cups! Jan 01, 2019

  • I love the easy of zipping the fabric off to wash it (my daughter is super messy) however it is very big and heavy. Not ideal if you’ll have more than one car seat in the car at the same time Oct 26, 2018

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!
