I looked at and researched car seats for a long time before deciding on this one. We were also looking at the Britax and found them to seem so cheaply made (gasp)at least on the comfort features. This car seat is plush and my little guy seems to be quite comfortable in it. My ONLY complaint and reason for not giving it 5 stars is that in the rear facing mode it is very hard to tighten the straps as others have commented and for some reason I have a hard time getting the buckle out, can't push the button hard enough...my husband and sister do not have this problem with it though. The other complaints about this seat like the shoulder straps being to narrow seem to have been resolved so Chicco listened. The seat installed like a dream as promised and just feels like a well made seat. I had the Chicco baby seat and this one works the same so has a familiarity about it that I like. The price was a bit of stretch for us but so far I feel that it was well worth the money, especially if you can get the 20% off coupon that babies r us sometimes offers.

The car seat it self is great! Love that it fit my preemie son & will grow with him! Its very plush and has lots of wonderful tools. I love the attachment for seats, super easy and convenient. I was really hoping for the zipper factor to work well because I love a clean car seat. However, the zipper itself catches on the clothes when you lean into the car seat while putting the baby in or taking the baby out. I have received a LOT of holes in my shirts because of this. The zipper now does not flow easily because of this ( the teeth catching and moving out of place). We now can NOT take the cover off and wash when dirty. On the plus,so far all the messes have wipes out supper easy. Great fabric! Would i buy this car seat again? No I don't think so sorry.

    Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Equinox:

    My son outgrew his infant seat at 9 months (85% percentile in length), so we switched him out to this seat. We used the Chicco infant seat and their bottle line that came out in 2014 and love both, so we trust the Chicco brand 100%. So far, he seems comfortable in it and I like how easy it is to get him in and out. I'm not searching for the straps behind him, but I will say that I do have to make a conscious effort to move the straps behind the flexed out harness system after or before I put him in the seat, otherwise I would still be searching behind him for them. Chicco's marketing makes it seem like the straps move out of the way without any effort on your part, which is not quite accurate. I think as he gets bigger, especially in the forward facing position, that this will become less and less of a concern. The padding and material of the seat is awesome. It seems very plush and being able to zip it off and clean it will be a great feature as I know we will inevitably need it. Three other things that prevented me from giving it 5 stars are:

    1. I thought I would be able to use ALL 9 of the recline positions no matter what car I put the seat in and no matter if the seat was rear facing or forward facing. I drive a 2013 Ford Escape and we are only able to recline to positions 1-4 with the seat rear facing. This was just a little misleading and a little disappointing because I was hoping to get some more front seat leg room back for my tall husband. That will have to wait a couple of years until he is forward facing and can sit upright in positions 5 - 9. Not a deal breaker though.

    2. The lever that controls the 9 recline positions is almost impossible to operate when the seat is secured in place. I envisioned being able to change the recline position "on the fly", but that is definitely not the case. I have to smash my hands between the seat back and the lever underneath the seat front, which really hurts. I have small hands and struggle. There is no way my husband would even have a chance at it! Even when I get my hands under there, its still darn near impossible to push it hard enough to get the lever to disengage the current setting to move to the next. I would have to loosen the anchor latch straps to change the recline position easily. I envisioned being able to easily recline to position 1 for when he needed a nap in the car and then adjusting it back to position 3 or 4 for a normal car ride. Also not a deal breaker for me, but having that flexibility would have been really nice.

    3. The release button to adjust the headrest is difficult to use. There is no way I could adjust the headrest with my son sitting in seat without bonking him in the face or head. I have to move my arms at a weird angle to get it to adjust. This isn't an area I would need to adjust often, but it seems like it shouldn't be that hard for an expensive seat like this one.

          Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat - Equinox:

          this car seat is super easy to use and very cozy for baby to toddler. after looking at all the different car seats this one is the best. better than the more expensive carseats. it seems to have more side impact protection. it also has a tall back so it works great if you want to rear face your baby for a longer period. I am rear facing and my toddler is almost 3. he seems to be comfortable. the only down side which isnt much of a down side was I hate the cup holder so I just took of the ridiculous "instillation bulky plastic and fabric from it and it works better with out it. great car seat.

          It was very easy to install. Felt way more secure than my last car seat, does not jiggle in any direction. We have a very small car (Honda Civic) and the car seat still fit in the back just fine. Love my purchase and the ability to remove the cover wash it and put it back on. Easy to put my kid into it as well (he hates being put into the car seat and will fight it.)

              First off the manager at toys r us is excellent. He was knowledgeable on the discounts they have in store and was glad to offer the 20% discount to me that i forgot to bring in. The carseat is wonderful. It fits in the car exactly as promised. The 1 through 9 tilt options are great. 1-4 options are for reverse sitting and allow you to pick the angle that makes the carseat fit best in your car. Fits snug with the new latch pull system and the padding is outstanding. No longer do i have to endure a screaming toddler because of an uncomfortable seat. There is padding all around. He sleeps great and never complains in long car rides. I haven't had to remove the cover but was able to see how easy it was to zip and unzip when first setting it up. I wish we bought this when my son was born. Highly recommended! !! Unlike other reviews, i have had no issues tightening and lossening shoulder straps.

                    We bought this car seat two weeks ago. Did lots of research and loved the fact that the seat cover comes to wash with a zipper. To my surprise, the car sear did not take much more room in the back seat than the infant seat we had been using. It reclines smoothly and my baby boy seems to feel comfortable in it. I am thinking we will go back to buy a second one for dad's car.

That would make it perfect. It does come with a cup holder also easy to clean. It grows with your child and seems very comfortable.
