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.

    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.

        You can tell this car seat was made well. It is great to be able to zip off the fabric top section of the car seat to wash if needed. It was fairly simple to install in my car.

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

        This seat is very compact and neat! Love the look! So many recline Positions are great but what is the point if you can't recline it anymore after the seat is installed!? Cant recline until you actually disconnect the seat first :( Forward facing If you level it (can't use all the recline positions) to the point its allowed (on the level indicator), the seat is to straight and the child's head pushed forward by the head rest. Imagine you sit on the straight back chair and put a pillow behind your head!? This seat looks great and the idea behind breathable material (air) is great, BUT the air flow is very poor. If you live in the desert or in very hot climate this seat is not ideal. Everything is fine in winter as with all other seats, but here comes the summer (rear and forward facing) and my child is WET every time he is in the seat :( even in AC car, 15 Min and you need to change clothing, even the head is WET. SAD! Also the drink holder is annoying. The seat is to closed off, the sides are to high which makes it uncomfortable to get to the child. The belts are always in the way when you put your child in even though they put a flexible bar under the cover to push the belts out to the sides.... it doesn't work very well. The zip cover is convenient if you compare to the same seat without zip. This was my second convertible car seat. First had Britax Boulevard Click Tight (which was recalled) and than this Chicco NextFit Zip Air (because i read all the best reviews about it). Bottom line this seat is not for us. I now got the Graco 4ever all in one instead and its just absolutely great!

        Buy it!!!! I promise you won't regret it! I love how sturdy it is. Literally does not move! My daughter loves it and actually smiles when I put her this seat. So much room and you can tell how comfy it is just by touching it. Fits super well in small cars as well. ( 2001 Honda Civic Owner)

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

        Love this car seat! It is comfortable for my little one with all the padding, easy to install, love the colors and how well made it is. I did my research and Chicco is the safest out there. The seat also comes with a cup holder but I haven't used it as my baby is still to small. I have a very small car and I have a little bit of a hard time getting my almost 10 month old in it. I am not blaming the seat at all, it is my car that is too small. I looked at a lot of other car seats and they are in the same range for size. I guess I will have to upgrade to a bigger car .

        Just took them out of the box, so we haven't used them yet... but the quality looks top notch. And the air channels in the back material look like they will make a big difference for my "little heater"!! Loved the keyfit 30, so we had to stick with chicco... for safety, ease of use, and quality.

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

        We like this carseat for comfort but it's sides are a bit high so getting our daughter in and out of it is a bit awkward. She's 27in tall and only 20 lb. We do have a 7 passenger large vehicle so it's not like our car is too small for the carseat. Other than that it suite our needs.

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

        I love the seat itself. However there are a few things I think can be changed.. the cupholder is too far away and my son gets so frustrated because he can't reach it leaving me to pull over and practically climb in the back to hand it to him. Also the material that is supposed to vent it to make it cooler is a little rough on his back and leaves marks even through his shirts. Other than a few other minor things this car seat is great! I love it and he seems really comfy since we do a lot of traveling.
