I did tons of research online. I even made a comparison chart with 4 car seats I liked and decided I wanted to get the NextFit. I went to the store to purchase and was excited they had the NextFit Zip. While at the store I even pulled down 2 more car seats I didn't have on my chart to compare in person and bought the NextFit Zip. My husband wasn't too happy with price, so later he was at another store and found a car seat for much less and purchased it hoping we could return the NextFit Zip and use the $70 car seat. After an hour of trying to fit the $70 car seat in my car with a rolled up towel and both of us pulling on the straps trying to tighten them so the seat was secure, we then realized that we sometimes switch the car seat to our SUV and the grandparents, aunts and uncles also take him in their car sometimes. Now my husband is convinced the NextFit Zip is a far superior car seat and is worth every penny.

It is so easy to use! We moved it from the car to the SUV in minutes. With the LATCH straps and the SuperCinch the seat is secure in seconds. The padding seems very comfortable and our son loves it. It's stylish and compared to the other car seats I looked at the fabric is much better quality. We haven't had to use the awesome zip off feature yet, but I am sure it will come in handy soon.

I highly recommend this car seat!!!

We used the Chicco Keyfit 30 for our first son this past year and were very happy with it, so we moved on to the Nextfit Zip ... only to be smacked in the face with disappointment. We plan to keep our son rear-facing as long as possible (currently 11 months) but the positioning of the release button and pull strap for the harness is so close to the seat that it is awkward and difficult to tighten the straps. You can get there, but you have to pull/adjust, pull/adjust several times with all your might to even get close to a snug fit. Not to mention, the seat is designed with a tight bucket shell with high sides that give very little clearance to get my son into the seat from the car door. I realize my SUV seats are higher but other seats are a little more open that would make it easier to get him in and out. Bottom line - not happy. In fact, returning the seat after less than one week of use. Stick to infant seats, Chicco.

Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Palisade:

We had the Keyfit30 and loved it, so Chicco was a natural choice when it was time to move to a convertible seat, especially with the addition of the Zip feature. The seat is great looking and the cushions are super plush; my son seems pretty comfy in it. However, the day-to-day use of the seat is such a hassle that I'm replacing it. First, the seat has high sides that make it tough to get the baby in and out at 7 mos., let alone 3-4 years. I could deal with the annoyance of high sides, but the harness is HORRIBLE. It's really difficult to press the release buttons in and impossible to pull the straps tight enough to be safe, even after following all of the tips from Chicco's customer service line. I wanted to love this seat, but it has me dreading taking the baby out of the house and that just won't work.

      Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Palisade:

      My husband and I had been looking for a new car seat for our 6 month old. After much research and comparing prices, we decided to go with a cheaper Graco model. BIG MISTAKE. The box came and I was so excited. I took it out of the box and I just looked at it in disappointment. It did not look comfortable, there were no shoulder straps, and the list goes on.

      We finally bit the bullet and went for the Chicco. Everything else we have, the travel system, pack and play, high chair, and lightweight stroller are all Chicco, which we love. When I took this car seat out of the box I was in love! The reclining feature is awesome. My 21 lb 6 month old can still feel like he is in his infant seat and fall asleep in the car. It is super easy to install! I thought it would be difficult to lift him over the seat to put him inside. NOPE! Super Easy. I also love how plush it is! Our little guy is super happy and comfortable. I LOVE this seat and would recommend it to everyone!

            Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Palisade:

            We decided that our new carseat would be a nicer on and chose this one after much research and testing out in the store. This carseat is not small and is not the lightest but we love it. I feel like my lil girl very safe and its very easy to use. I love the quick connect hooks which allow for easy installation in my car. I love the fact that the cover zips off and can easily be cleaned. I never do these reviews but I wanted other moms to know how happy we were with this and glad we spent the extra money.

            Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Palisade:

            After doing MUCH research between brands and polling with other mothers, I decided to continue on with using Chicco as I had already been using Chicco Keyfit for my infant and have NOT been disappointed at all!! This is an amazing carseat that will last us many years. My son was so excited to get a seat that he could stretch out in and fell asleep almost instantly during his first ride which is awesome as we travel a lot. He is 11 months and is already quite tall so I am excited about the extended head support feature. Even though it is quite bulky and takes time to move between vehicles, installation is so easy and I am confident in my son's safety. I have a Saturn Vue and it fits well in the back seat, although it does take up a good amount of space and the passenger seat cannot recline. The germaphobe in me also loves the zip feature so I can clean it easily as kids are naturally gross. My only complaint is the cup holder. What is this supposed to hold? Sure it may be insulated, but absolutely none of my son's cups or bottles can even begin to fit in it. Hopefully there is another cup attachment that I can get which will be more useful. If not for this, I would have given it 5 stars!

              Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Palisade:

              We purchased this seat months ago for one of our vehicles. We were now ready to buy a second one. I bought the Recaro seat, and returned it the next day and got the identical Chicco Nextfit as in our other vehicle. You won't find safety reviews online for carseats bc they are simply reviewed based on pass or fail. However, it is just common sense when you compare this carseat to other plasticy/poorly constructed carseats that this is clearly amongst the safest. Not only is it a made better, it actually stays securely in place and doesn't move around unlike others. You don't have to put towels underneath to find the right recline setting. My only complain initially was that you couldn't wash it until the Nextfit zip came out. We immediately bought it when it did. We were very tempted to buy the Britax, but ultimately this one felt better made (included the clips that attach to the car to the padding).
              The size is also perfect. Some carseats are poorly designed making it difficult to see out the rear windows (ex the Recaro we returned).
              My only complaint is that it seems a little warm.

                  Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Palisade:

                  My wife and I originally bought the Chicco NextFit for $279 minus 20%. We went back to get the second one the following week for our other car and I decided I wanted the NextZip for $329. The advantage for me was the straps are better than the NextFit. So, we returned my wifes NextFit and bought two NextZips. They were both $329 minus 20%. We could not be happier. I know it is a lot of money for a carseat and we originally looked them over due to cost. But when we looked at the length of time we will get out of the seats the price started to make sense. Gracco and other brands are always recalling their products. Don't be cheap. Pay up for your child's safety.
