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:

      I recently purchased this car seat for my 7 month daughter old as she had out grown her Chicco Keyfit30. I was going back and forth between staying with Chicco or going with a different brand. After reading countless reviews of the Chicco nextfit and Nextfit Zip I ultimately decided to give the Nextfit Zip a try being we liked her Keyfit30 so much.

      After using it for about a month now here are some positives:

      I have a 2010 Chevy Impala and a tall husband and the keyfit30, when positioned in the middle of the back seats, didn't allow him to get enough leg room to drive or be in the passenger seat without hitting his knees on the dash. So one of the things I was hoping for in our next carseat was that it would allow room for my husband's seat to be all the way back when the car seat was in the middle of the back seats. The NextFit Zip fits great in the middle of our back seats and my husband can finally sit comfortably in my car whether he's driving it or enjoying the ride.

      The car seat itself looks and feels really comfortable. My 7 month old daughter seems to find it comfortable as well. She used to dislike car rides but I have yet to hear her cry while in the Nextfit Zip. I really appreciate the added padding around the buckles and straps and that is one of the main reasons why I went with the Nextfit Zip instead of the Nextfit

      A con I've run into:

      Before buying the NextFit Zip I read the complaints with how difficult it can be to wrangle a child in and out of the car seat due to the high sides from the shell like design so I was prepared that I would run into the same issue and I certainly have. Taking my daughter in and out of the car seat (we are using it rear facing currently) can be difficult and it's certainly not the most graceful process. I hope that Chicco perfects the design to make this process more smooth for parents.

      Overall this has been a great car seat for us in the month that we've had it. My daughter enjoys her car rides in it. The car seat fits great in the back of our 2010 Impala, and even with the small difficulty of getting her in and out of the seat due to the design of the sides I would recommend this product!

              My fiancé and I have been looking for about 2 months for a car seat and are very happy with our purchase!! Our son is turning 6 months in 2 weeks and is 23 lbs and needs a big boy car seat! He is in the chicco infant car seat and we absolutely loved it. We really wanted to stick with chicco and are extremely happy we found this car seat. We love the way it looks and we also love the zip feature for easy cleaning! The head support honestly had us sold. While we were out looking at car seats we would feel the head support on others like the gracco 4 in 1 and it just didn't seem very comfortable or like it would protect him in a car accident. Chicco is the best choice and we are so happy we bought this car seat!! I definitely will recommend this car seat.

                We use our Nextfit for our youngest son. We brought him home from the hospital in it. Very secure and safe. I love that this seat has higher limits for rear facing. And could actually accommodate my four year old, which means my youngest will definitely get his use out of it. I look forward to the grow with me feature and not have to retread the straps from the back.

                      We bought this car seat as a step up to our chicco key fit!! We love our key fit and wanted to stay with the same style!!! Very easy to latch into car. Padding seems comfortable for our baby. Love that there is padding around the crotch buckle to avoid pinching or burning baby with the buckles! Very easy to adjust height of headrest/straps and change angle of the seat. I also like the fact that the cover zips off for when we have snacks in the car. Right now I think the only downfall is the limited colors and the cup holder. We bought 2 of these seats for us a third for my sister (for a second vehicle) who is currently using the regular next fit.

                                  As much as I love the ease of installation, I am completely irriated at how difficult it is to get an equal amount of tightness on the harness. One side always ends up too loose and the other too tight. I realize that the harness is only one piece and pull equally on the straps to loosen and when I go to tighten I still end up with uneveness. Not safe at all!

                                  Consumer reports loves this seat. We like it so much we bought two of them. The Zip-Out feature has already proven useful. I feel I can only give it 4 stars, however, because Toys-R-Us has exclusivity rights to sell this seat with the Zip-Out feature; you can't buy it anywhere else. The Zip-Out feature is barely worth the premium price tag Toys-R-Us has put on the seat. This said, we own two of these seats, so it obviously didn't deter us any. I fault Chicco for this sales tactic more than Toys-R-Us.

                                  As with any seat, learn how to secure your child properly. This seat has many adjustments, so make sure you have it set to fit your child properly. As others have mentioned, the harness tensioner can be a little difficult to use. If you take the slack out of the hip portion of the harness, then work your way up the harness in adjusting the chest clip and shoulder pads, this leaves only the slack above/behind the shoulder pads to be removed with the tensioner. Pull the tensioner belt (at the bottom of the seat, between the legs) HORIZONTALLY OUT from the seat, not up. My wife and I have no problems securing the harness if you follow this method. This obviously is challenging when the seat is in the Rear-Facing configuration, but still possible.

                                  Despite the negatives, I still feel this seat is a wise purchase. I could never put a price tag on my child's safety, and the harness isn't a deal breaker for us. If you feel the same, buy this seat. If you are unsure, get what has a return policy, and try it out.

                                        Its been 12 years since Ive had to buy a carseat. Youngest had the Chicco Keyfit and I loved it so I looked into a Chicco convertible for him when he outgrew it. Love the easy installation of the NextFit. We purchased an Evenflo in store for husbands vehicle and ordered this one online. The Evenflo was too big to fit in my SUV without moving the drivers seat up (carseat was placed in middle section of backseat). Had no issues with the NextFit being too big. Really like that the NextFits base is solid as well....seems more secure in my vehicle. Love that there are so many options to get the perfect fit in any vehicle and that this seat will last my Little one for quite awhile. Directions were easy to follow and I love that the cover zips off for easy washing. Little one loves his new seat and I would purchase it again in a heartbeat.
