We own 8 next fit zips for many cars and many kids. This one is nice but leaves marks on my kids back. I wonder if that is really comfortable. Air material is pretty stiff to start at least.

I purchased 2 of these car seats for my twins. I love the idea of being able to zip off the cover, the breathability, the 9 recline positions, & the easy install. I am a previous Chicco purchasing mama, so I felt like I was making the best choice. These are very pricey seats & so far I'm a little disappointed. My twins are 14 1/2 months old & have been in these seats for 2 months. The fabric is already looking pilly, it's snagging, & doesn't look very nice at all. I like to keep my baby's things nice looking, but that's not going to happen with these. For the money, I'd expect the fabric to stay good looking. I haven't attempted (but need to) to take the seat cover off to wash, but I can see a problem already, the cover over the moving headrest is not part of the zip off cover, which doesn't make sense considering this part will easily get dirty. I really hope it comes off easily. For the most part, the seat is easy to install, but when you take it in & out of the car it does seem to be a little more difficult to get that tight fit, the '1st Pull' strap is not easy to loosen & pull. Last, but not least, I'd say the headrest adjustment is not easy to adjust, it doesn't feel like there is anything to grasp while pushing the plastic piece that allows you to adjust it. I'm starting to feel like maybe these weren't the best seats I could've gotten.

Sturdy car seat that fit in a small car

By Mom

from Seattle

Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Air Convertible Car Seat - Ventata:

It really attach very well to the seat. After reading instructions we set it up fast and easy. It is sturdy and well constructed.
The air features worked well in our 1st drive of 50min. I must agree with other reviews that it marks the back on my infant (but I will try adding a thin cotton piece of fabric. What happens is that the skin gets trapped within the channels of the air fabric. However, for longer trips we might still get some marks, but we believe is better to have that than a sweaty and hot baby). I think the designers can do a better job here. Let's hope they improve it.
Depending on your car the recline positions might reduce to fewer than advertised.
I am still studying my baby position because in my car some positions make him look like his chin is too close to his chest)
Lastly, it fits in my chevy volt and I dont see an issue taking in/out my infant out of it.
We do recommend this car seat.

It was a easy to use car seat straight out of the box. Easy to install in the car. My baby looks snug as a bug and it is so comfortable he falls asleep almost every time he's put in it.

    Comments about Chicco NextFit Zip Air Convertible Car Seat - Ventata:

    Purchased because it was the only convertible car seat designed to keep baby cool. So far it has helped but I still pull him out of the car seat sweaty-to be fair it's almost 100degrees right now. Easy to use and install. Not sure how you could ever get this tight enough for a small infant. Very heavy, but sturdy. Was worried he wouldn't be as comfortable as he was in his Maxi Cosi infant car seat and he doesn't seem to mind.
