I already love the chicco brand. So we went with another chicco car seat since my son needed a bigger one. The make of the car seat is super nice. To top it off, albeebaby had the best price to go with it! So we are super satisfied with our purchase!

My fav car seat!
March 31, 2017
I love this car seat! My son has three and when my daughter needed to move up from her infant car seat I tried another seat but hated it and bought this for her. It's so easy to install and it got here in two days which I was so surprised about!
ConsIt's a heavier car seat so it's a little difficult to move from car to car but that's the only con about this seat.

Great car seat
March 26, 2017
We love this car seat. Super easy to install. Feels very sturdy and safe. Tightening the tension on the chest straps is a little bit tough but that's the only thing we can complain about. Every other adjustment is easy and quick.

Amazing car seat- bigger than expected- Chicco is the one to pick
March 23, 2017
I have a lot of Chicco products and this one definitely doesn't disappoint. High quality and SAFE. The only negative is that it is SO big. Which is good and bad. My child is much more comfortable which is a huge bonus, but the drawback is having it behind the driver seat means the driver can't lean their seat back very far with it set on the highest (level) setting. Luckily we have a large vehicle, with a spacious backseat, so it's only a minor inconvenience. I don't know how well it would fit (rear facing) in a smaller sedan, however. Though I imagine this type of seat has that problem across the product lines.
ProsSoft material Zip off feature for washing Flex fit restraint
ConsTakes up a ton of space Not good for small sedans Hard to reach the tightening/loosening button when raised to the highest rear facing setting

Chicco Nextfit
March 18, 2017
Love it! We had the Keyfit infant car seat and finally was able to transition into a bigger seat for our daughter. I had looked at all the reviews for convertible car seats and the Nextfit beat all the other car seat brands that are currently on the market. Couldn't ask for a better car seat for our daughter! Will definitely continue to purchase Chicco products in the future!
ConsToo heavy

Cannot machine wash it

I bought it but the fact that I cannotwash it make it worthless. We most likely will be changing seats in the future so I feel we lost out money here.

The perfect car seat
March 12, 2017
This car seat is amazing. It fits so snug in your car. I bought 2 other car seats before buying a Chicco. I won't ever buy any brand ever again. The latch system gets the car seat so tight, that it won't even budge. That is so important to me. I recommend this car seat to any one and everyone.

Very disappointed!
March 4, 2017
I've had this carseat for a year and must say I'm very disappointed. I wanted to love this seat but cannot. I also own the chicco infant and that is a fabulous seat. The harness/straps on the chicco convertable are so difficult to properly tighten, especially if you suffer from arthritis. If you can't snuggly secure you're child in the seat, it negates all the supposed safety benefits. The bottom plastic buckle is oddly placed and digs into the inner thigh of my son when he is wearing shorts. The sides are high and bucket-like seat, deep, so it is also difficult to get him in when it is rear facing. My son always appears uncomfortable and awkward when in the seat. I really wanted to love this seat but it has been one of my worst and expensive baby purchases. I am astounded by the number of positive reviews this seat continues to get. I'd say the only good thing is that it is a sturdily built, albeit, heavy car seat.

I love this car seat! I have 4 of these seats for my 3 year old and 9 month old. They are the easiest to install and are extremely comfortable for my kids. Multiple recline positions and a removable cover makes this a no-brainer for me!

Exactly as expected
February 12, 2017
We love this car seat! Went back and forth on this or the Britax Advocate but this one cocooned LO more and had many features which I felt actually overrode the Advocate. In addition to safety, it leaves more room for front seat positioning in our Outback than the Keyfit30, the seat cover material is nicer, the shape is more uniform, and the harnesses fit better. Albee is the only place to find the color I wanted (Castlerock) and it is truly a beautifully designed seat. Pleased with everything although shipping could've been faster, took over a week, but I wasn't in a hurry.
ProsUniform Shape Slightly more compact than next competitor Seat cover material Harness fit Color options Comes with cup holder Recline options

Overall happy
February 5, 2017
I have owned this car seat for a year. I have several other Chico products (Stroller, double stroller, keyfit, high chair, & more). Overall, I LOVE every Chicco product I have ever owned. I highly recommend any product they sell. I am a huge Chicco car seat advocate. I have been a car seat technician and love everything about the ease of the installation, safety features etc. it's always the one I recommend to family and friends. I am hoping they come out with a combination seat! The reason I gave this car seat a 4 is recently I have had my first big diasspointment with this product. We have both the nextfit and nextfit zip. I love the ease of the zip feature. My disappointment is that there is no way to fully remove the straps. My toddler recently caught a stomach bug that came out of no where. Of course we were out and had to drive home with her puking every 5 minutes. Since the straps are not removable I am not able to get it completely cleaned. This is disappointing because I now have to choose to buy a new seat or have to always smelling like vomit. I know a friend that had the same issue. It's very frustrating when you spend so much money that it's something that can't always be cleaned. It's a toddler car sways and with toddlers these thing she are bound to happen. Like I said overall awesome products but this did make my perfect rating drop some.

Love this car seat
February 2, 2017
We've been using this car seat for a while since I wanted to get a chance to use all of the features before writing a review. My son is very comfortable in the seat and sometimes he doesn't want to get out of it. I love that when he makes a mess I can zip the cover off to throw it in the wash. The seat is super easy to install and on the rare occasion that I have to move it to a different car it's not a big deal. I find that it isn't too heavy to carry if I use the straps. I highly recommend this convertible car seat to anyone looking for a safe seat that will fit their child for several years.

easy to use
February 1, 2017
We picked this car seat because it was the same brand as our infant seat and we wanted something we would be very comfortable using. It fits in our pickup behind the passenger seat with no problems. I like the recline options it has- I really think it could fit in any vehicle big or small. The only dislike is it is kind of heavy. It is fairly easy to adjust and I love the zip off cover option for when my daughter gets into cheerios :) we were going to buy a nice one (this one) and a cheaper one for a backup seat and for when other people pick up our daughter, but ended up buying two of this one because we liked it so much.

Chicco NextFit Zip
January 25, 2017
This is a great car seat. It is very easy to install and my 10 month old loves it. Very comfy and easy to get her in and out. I had recently purchased the regular NextFit but returned for the zip. I love the padding around the crotch buckle and bottom side straps, it props them up so I don't have to dig them out from under her and I love that I can just unzip to clean.
ProsEasy to install, easy cleaning, padding around straps and buckles, several recline positions so it's easy to get perfectly level, easy adjustable harness strap, nice fabric.
Fast delivery!

Seems comfortable
January 10, 2017
This carseat seems comfortable for my little man. The adjustable reclining feature is very nice. Lots of padding. My only complaint is the straps fall into the middle and I have a hard time getting them out from under him. Strap holders on each side would be great in the next model. It is also a little difficult to tighten. Overall a great purchase though. Looking forward to the zip off feature to be able to wash easily!

Worth it
January 8, 2017
I've looked at many car seats and for the price range, this car seat delivers with high quality and versatility. I like the sturdy- non-pilling material and that it can be unzipped and washed is a plus for spills or blowouts. It's a great investment.
By auzach11
Great in theory, more difficult in practice
January 8, 2017
I bought 3 of the Nextfit Zip car seats for my 2 year old to go in each of our cars, plus a car of a grandparent. We purchased for the ease of use, safety features, ease of installation. How could you go wrong with simply unzipping the cover and throwing in the wash? However therein lies the fatal flaw... the placement of the zipper. The cover zips and unzips directly behind the headrest, which makes it rather simple to remove and excruciatingly difficult to zip up without removing the entire seat from the car- thus negating the convenience factor.

December 21, 2016
My 1YO loves his Nextfit and so do I. It fits perfectly in my G6. I love how easy it is to install - latch & seat belt! Also, the padding is incredibly comforting for my little one, and he sleeps so good in the car.. Everything about the seat is pretty awesome, although, the cup holder is kind of useless... BUT, it's not too much of a problem for me. I also really love how so many recline positions are offered.

I got this 2 weeks ago, I read the instructions, tried all the latching and reclining features on the seat while it sat on the floor in my house, once I was familiar with it, I installed it in my car.

Very safe
December 19, 2016
We bought 2 of these - one for each car. I like Chicco for their safety record. We were excited about the ease of the zipper cover and the flex-out comfort harness to keep the straps away. The comfort harness is a joke. It does absolutely nothing. The zip out cover is not even close to as easy as they advertise. I like this product for safety but clearly not worth the extra month for the "convenient" features. I would only recommend it for the safety record.

Great car seat so far!
December 17, 2016
We've only used it about a week. But the first time we did my son fell asleep in it after about 30 minutes. He's 6 months old and in the 90th percentile for weight so we graduated from our infant seat very quick! This was a great replacement. The only down side I would say is when it's rear facing it seems harder to get him in on the same side. Maybe if I put him in from the other direction and wasn't so close to the door it would be better. I think this also depends on the car you have and how the door is shaped.

This is my second chicco nextfit zip convertible car seat. Coming from a keyfit 30 I am already familiar with the chicco line of car seats. In my opinion it's one of the best convertible car seat in the market, in fact it is the highest rated convertible car seat according to consumer reports. When it comes to pricing it is in the middle of the pack of car seats. Really a good value when it comes to what it can offer for safety, ease of installation, comfort and more.

Excellent Convertible Seat!
December 12, 2016
We used the Chicco Keyfit 30 for our son and recently purchased the Nextfit Zip because we loved the Keyfit so much. It is very adjustable and my son fits very comfortably. He's 9 months old, 20 lbs. We also purchased a Britax Marathon for the babysitter's car and although it is a safe and easy to install seat, we much prefer the Nextfit Zip. It fits him better and is much more adjustable. The Nextfit Zip will be worth the extra money in the long run since our son will be using it for years to come.
ProsVery adjustable Comfortable LATCH is easy to install High weight limit Cover zips off for easy cleaning
ConsExpensive- we got it on sale but it was still over $200. Seatbelt installation is hard to get tight enough. Latches MUST be standard spacing (11 in) to use safely. No middle seat installation borrowing latches from either side. Heavy- this is NOT a good seat to travel with!

High quality, safe car seat
December 12, 2016
This Chicco car seat is made with very high quality materials, there is a huge difference between this car seat and our previous car seat which was the leading affordable brand. Very easy and straightforward install and fits securely. The pull strap for tightening the belts is a little difficult to get used to and the 'baby ready' feature is not as amazing as I hoped, but better than what we were dealing with previously. Very easy to loosen the harness to get baby out, my husband always had trouble with this before!

Great car seat
December 11, 2016
We really like that this car seat is easy to install and looks very protective. It takes up a lot of room and is heavy so it's best to buy another one for a second car and to not plan on moving it around.
ProsLooks comfy, fabric unzips to wash (although it appears difficult to actually remove and reinstall it), is easy to install (very similar installation to the Keyfit, if you've used that one), and appears pretty safe. Solidly constructed.
ConsHard to get your kid in and out without conking them on the interior ceiling of your car, hard to tighten the harness as tight as you may like, and very confusing directions if you want to keep your kid rear-facing between 35-40 lbs and also during a weight window when front-facing (read the instructions for details). Expensive and very large. If installed on middle seat, makes it impossible to fold down either seat (if your car supports this).

I love this car seat.The install is so easy. It is easy to adjust the belts, turn forward facing or rear facing. I will never buy another car seat for my littles again. My only problem with this seat is the actual cover. The velcro that straps the cover to the seat broke after only a few months. I feel like if I pay 349$ for a seat the material used to cover the seat should hold up better.

November 14, 2016
I have had several different brands of car seats and this was my first chicco. This company has thought of everything! Set up and installation could not have been easier. Really easy to follow directions and indicators on the seat itself. I really like the bubble indicator that ensures your seat is at a safe angle depending on if your child is forward or rear seated. The shoulder and crotch straps were easy to adjust and seem to be better quality (sturdy/thicker) than other brands. I like the location of the strap release button. It is easy to locate and to push; I don't have to go searching for it like other car seats I have. The fabric is high quality and I like the idea of the zip off cover. No accidents yet, but nice to know it's an option if needed! I really enjoy this brand and look forward to purchasing Chicco products for next step car seats.

Durable Car Seat
October 26, 2016
I've been using this car seat for a couple weeks, and I really love it so far. From what I can see, the only downside is the lack of built-in cupholders. However, the seat seems very solid and durable, which is much more important than cupholders. I also like the color. My son seems to like it and sleeps well in it on longer car rides.
Easy installation
October 22, 2016
We recently switched from our infant car seat carrier to the Chico next fit zip. Installing a car seat, especially one you've never installed before is always frustrating and it takes me a few times before I get it right. Not with this one. It was easy to adjust to the angle we needed, latch it into the seat, and tighten it with the straps. I've had to take other car seats to a car seat clinic and they have to add padding to seat of my car to make sure the car seat is inclined at the right angle to support the baby's neck. This seat reclines so far back, the angle was easy to achieve. It also goes to 65 lbs so I won't need to purchase another car seat like I did with my first child- her seat went to 40 lbs.

Easy to clean
October 16, 2016
I'm so happy they've made a car seat with a zipper! It's much easier to clean! We've loved all of our chicco car seats for their safety and this new feature made it even better!

Great features and customer service!
October 6, 2016
I bought my first born a Chicco Nexfit in 2014 when she was 7 months old. She has been rearfacing in it since and she is 3 years old. We absolutely love this seat, it's so easy to install and she says it's super comfy. She has long legs and fits super comfy as if it is a recliner in the rearfacing position. My carseat recently was defective bc the stirofoam head rest was popped off when I took it apart to wash it, my guess is from normal wear and tear and it's 3 years old. We are years passed the 1 year warranty , but Chicco Customer service was willing to make an exception and they are sending out a replacement seat. We are so thankful!! We just recently purchased a 2nd carseat for our 1 year old, and she loves it as well. We have a small 2001 grand prix and both Nexfit carseats fit rearfacing comfortably! Highly reccomend this seat!!

Cleaning is a nightmare
September 28, 2016
If your child throws up, the seat is trash. Period. "spot cleaning" is not an option with an all out vomit. I've had this seat 4 months and my son got sick for the first time. I can't believe the bulk of the fabric cannot be removed to be washed. I wish I had purchased a different seat.

This is our second NextFit. My son has one, and now we just transferred my daughter to one. I didn't even have another car seat in mind. This car seat is so user friendly and is so functional. The safety features are phenomenal.

Possibly the best car seat on the market!
September 22, 2016
I am a 51 year old mother of 4 grown children with 6 grandchildren and I have seen my share of car seats over the years. This is the third Chicco Nextfit car seat I have bought in the last two years. I will not buy anything else. These car seats are by far the best on the market for the price. They are amazingly easy to install and remove and are the safest most comfortable seat I have seen yet. My youngest grandson is 3 months old and 15 pounds and dreadfully hated being put into his infant car seat but he doesn't even make a peep when I put him in this seat. Comfort makes our ride much more enjoyable. I have and will continue to recommend this car seat to anyone who is in the market.

Great carseat!
September 17, 2016
We have been using this carseat for a month now and love it! Super easy to install. Love how easy it is to adjust the straps to my baby and knowing its safe. I haven't had to wash the seat the cover yet but I did unzip it to see how it works and super easy!!! I would recommend this carseat to everyone!!!
ProsZipper seat cover makes it beyond easy to wash and put back together and easy install
ConsIt on the heavy side
It's the best choice!

I recommend vs. britax boulevard
September 14, 2016
I had the boulevard (not the click tight) but felt the material was cheap and started showing wear very quickly. The latch system on the boulevard was difficult to properly tighten (and loosen!). So far, I LOVE this Chico! Much better latching system and the material seems very durable. I definitely would recommend this to friends/family.

Pricey but Bells and Whistles Make Life Easier
September 10, 2016
Both of my children have one of these seats in different colors. Straps very easy to adjust. Main cover easy to remove. Just wish headrest cover was simpler to remove and reinstall. Love that the crotch strap/buckle has a cover. Much more comfortable for baby when wearing shorts or a skirt/dress. The main reason I bought this seat was the many different recline positions. This meant the seat would fit rear facing in my car without pushing the front seat so far forward that no one can ride in it. Very nice seat but I would have gone with something less expensive had I found something that fit. Given the upper weight limit of 65 pounds we should get quite a bit of use out of it. All the bells and whistles really are not needed but I must admit I like them!
By Sam
Very happy with my purchase
September 2, 2016
Great car seat! Love the zip feature and this color over the options available in stores. The car seat is bulky, but I'll take incredible safety ratings and a zip off cover everyday. We only use Chico models for seats. I had to order this online and couldn't be happier that I did. First time Albee baby buyer and I'll definitely order again!
ProsColor, zip off, cup holder. Easy to clean. I like the material.
ConsBulky maybe my husbands says. I love it.

Loved this seat until I started potty training!
August 30, 2016
I have loved this seat for the last two years. Then we started potty training. My two year old had an accident in the car seat. I took the pads off and washed them and put them back on. Then she decided to pour her milk out all over the seat so I took and seat off and put it back on. Then it started to smell to high heaven. Couldn't find the reason until I took it apart a third time. Everything gets down into the base of this seat and you can't take the base off without ruining the seat. Customer service suggest hosing the chair down with the covers off but what do parents do when you don't have the time to hose it down and sit it out in the sun to dry? What if its a rainy day and you have somewhere to go? For such an expensive chair there must be a better solution. I can't stop our schedule to air dry our car seat anytime something happens. Toddlers make messes and we need seats that are more easily cleaned!

From keyfit to nextfit
August 19, 2016
I just bought the nextfit zip convertible car seat. We LOVE chicco. My 6 month old son started with the keyfit and is 1/2 inch from reaching max capacity on it. We knew the only option for a convertible seat was next fit. I love how easily it installs with the latch. I love how tight to super cinch gets. The only problem I have isnt even with the seat necessarily. I drive a jeep and the back seat is pretty tight. The nextfit is large so it makes the front passenger seat practically unusable since I have to move it all the way forward. This was a sacrifice I was aware of before buying the nextfit and a sacrifice I was more than willing to make. I love the safety standards of chicco and it's the only one we will use.

Overall Poor Experience
August 17, 2016
I bought this car seat for our second vehicle since my daughter is starting preschool. This came highly recommended on consumer reports and we have the infant seat for my son. We have a van and a smaller suv-both family cars. My husband and I tried installing this seat multiple times. We would try to install and move to make sure secure. It would loosen easily. We would bring it inside and gave it a couple more goes before giving up and starting return process. I truly feel there is a design issue. I called customer service and was told to only wiggle at the base and not the top. I have a different brand in our current vehicle and can put force on any portion and it remains tight. I told the representative that normal kid motion would loosen this seat immediately and every time my toddler rode in this seat it would loosen and need to be reinstalled, virtually unsafe every time. I would caution everyone to be sure of this seat as u probably will have to pay for return shipping like I did. Not cheap.

Buy the ZIP!!
August 16, 2016
We loved our Chicco Nextfit so much that I wanted another one for our 2nd baby. The Nextfit isn't too terrible to remove the lining for washing but the ZIP feature is SO WORTH the extra cost. Installation is a breeze and we have a few vehicles so we rotate car seats often and both I and my husband prefer to move the Nextfit over the Diono car seat we own. My son is 2 and he sleeps so comfortably in the Nextfit because of the recline function. In the Diono, he sits upright and if he falls asleep, his head falls forward and occludes his airway. I recommend everyone to buy the Nextfit Zip!!
ProsUnzip to remove liner to wash easily - genius!
ConsWish it was more affordable.
Best UsesFits great in compact vehicles.

I contacted a car seat program to determine which car seats were recommended to decrease brain and spinal cord injuries and this was one of them that was recommended. It's pretty easy to use with great instructions for use and installation. We did have some issues with our first order because it ended up that the car seat we ordered was out of stock. Albee did a wonderful job at offering different options and rectifying the situation.

Saved my daughter's life
August 9, 2016
I bought this car seat not quite two years ago in the blue color. Three days ago, while taking our 2 year old to a concert, my family was hit head on. We spun, flipped and rolled 2-3 times. We landed upside down. Thankfully, we are all safe. My daughter had not a scratch on her. Not one. Neither did her car seat. I don't know how. I do know this car seat was the best money I EVER spent. I am beyond grateful to Chicco to making such a wonderful car seat. I have no doubt you saved my daughter's life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Love this seat
July 16, 2016
I have this seat for my 2 year old. I absolutely love it. It's easy to install and easy to get him strapped in tightly. We also have a keyfit 30 for my 6 month old (we used one for my 2 year old when he was an infant too), and I love it too. Since having my first child, chicco is the only brand of car seat that I will purchase. We are actually looking at getting my 6 month old a nextfit here pretty soon.

great comfy seat
July 11, 2016
I bought this when my son turned one. He loves it so much. It's high up so he can see outside. It can recline so he can be lay back when he feel asleep during our trip. The material is thick enough to be very comfy. I would pick lighter color so it don't get to hot during summer days in CA. Other than that we loves it.

Great seat, really frustrating to strap kid in
July 5, 2016
We just installed this car seat in both of our cars - we own 2. I love comfy my kid is in it - she's much more supported which I love. However, I hate that the straps are so hard to tighten! We have the CX and a regular one (not the zip). If I had been able to figure this out when we got the seats 6 months ago when we got them I probably would have returned the seats and gotten something else. Now I feel like we spent a fair amount of money on something we are only halfheartedly in love with. It makes me sad because I love the Chicco brand. Hopefully it gets better, but if not we are gifting/donating them and getting a different brand unless Chicco figures something else out.

My granddaughter loves it!
July 4, 2016
My fourth granddaughter was born into a family that's always on the move. From event to event, this car seat allows her to ride in comfort. While it is rather large as it will be used until she is 65 lbs., we adjust it based on her needs. She sleeps, eats, and plays in comfort. The ability to easily clean the seat also is a major plus. My sister purchased three for her toddler. No complaints for this seat.
ProsEasy cleaning

Great Car Seat
June 21, 2016
We bought this a few weeks ago and have loved it so far. Our daughter would sweat a lot in her old car seat but now stays cool and dry in this car seat. It has plenty of room for her to feel comfortable and the fabric is great! But most importantly, it is ranked in the top 3 for safest car seats, which is why we purchased it. The only 2 down sides I can think of about this car seat is the size. If we have another child, it will be hard fitting another car seat in the back. Also, none of our bottles fit into the cup holder.

best car seat on market
June 16, 2016
I compared several car seats in the local store, and I find out that only Chicco nextfit zip has all functions I need ; quick installation, removable seat cover and angle adjustment. I have been using this seat about three weeks now, and I love it very much.
