Product Manuals

NextFit Zip Max Extended-Use Convertible Car Seat - Atmos is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Luxury Car Seat We've been using this car seat for a few weeks now and I love it even more now then when I first got it. This car seat has been a complete game changer for us. We have a 15 month old who weighs approximately 25 pounds. Pros: - The latch system that comes with this car seat is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. Not only is the installation incredibly intuitive and simple, but I manage to get a tight fit every time without breaking a sweat. I use to dread having to switch out our car seat, but the latch technology on this has made it a breeze. - My husband was very impressed with the solid construction of this car seat. It does make it a little on the heavy side, but you can tell the extra weight comes from how well it’s made. - The fabric is incredibly soft while still feeling durable. I love putting my 15 month old son in this car seat because I know he is comfortable. The fabric also feels very breathable... which is important for southern summers. - I love the padding around the center buckle between the legs. It's a small upgrade, but it makes a huge difference. I always felt like other buckles dug into my little guy's thighs... so the extra padding was a detail we both appreciated. - I find it incredibly easy to get a custom fit every time. The chest bar is easy to adjust and the straps pull smoothly requiring minimal effort. Having a snug fit gives me piece of mind when I’m driving. Cons: - Not necessarily a con, but it's on the bigger side for a car seat... significantly bigger than our last convertible car seat. However, it still fits into my small crossover SUV with ease and our 2nd car seat still fits in the backseat next to it. I did not have to adjust the front seat to accommodate for this larger car seat... which surprised me given its size. - The biggest downside to this car seat (and the only real con) is that the release button for the chest straps is difficult to use. It's covered almost completely by fabric so it takes some work to get to. This can make loosening the straps difficult. Overall we are incredibly impressed with this car seat and look forward to using it with our son as he grows. This is our first Chicco product and we are now brand lovers! This is a luxury car seat that I feel is well worth the expense. Our old car seat was around the same price point and I found this one to be of much higher quality and easier to use overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier installation and cleaning What l like most about this carseat is the easy installation. I have used 3 different brands of carseats and this installation type is my favorite. I like the zipper feature for cleaning. The removable cup holders are great feature also. My children tend to stash snacks and other things in the cup holders so being able to remove them to clean them is very nice. So far it's been a great a carseat. Chicco provided this product to me in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overall car seat! My husband and I opted to purchase only a convertible car seat for our newborn versus an infant car seat, and then a convertible. The NextFit Zip Max was the perfect decision in doing so, as it safely seats a newborn, and child up to 65 lbs, really helping the overall baby budget. We also have long babies in our family, so the fact that it offers more legroom when rear facing is great for our growing family. As with all Chicco products, this was extremely easy to install. We also love that the seat pad can be completely zipped off and washed for any accidents that are bound to happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features! We love the fact that this seat already includes the infant seat which will be easy to remove once no longer needed! The fact that you can un-zip the fabric surrounding the seat will also make it easier to keep the car seat clean for the duration of its use. Once you figure out all the points of emphasis on the seat, the installation was fairly easy using our SUV’s LATCH system. The leveling indicator, the 9-position sliding recliner and the directions for installation using the LATCH system were all in great locations on the seat and easy to find. You can use the seatbelt connectors as well as the LATCH system for added security if needed but not necessary. The seat is fairly heavy so moving it back and forth between vehicles could be an issue but ours will stay in my husband’s SUV. The infant portion of the car seat does not convert into a carrier, so you will need to use a stroller or baby shoulder carrier if you are running errands and need to get in and out of your vehicle. All in all, the seat is highly functional and after swinging by our local Fire Department to have it inspected for proper installation, we were both very confident in using the seat! We were sent the seat in exchange for our honest review of the seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Convertible Seat! We have a very tall 16 month old and this car seat is perfect for our growing toddler. We previously used the Chicco Fit2, which we love for many reasons, so knew we wanted a Chicco for his next stage car seat. Many pros – including rear-facing (comfortably!) until 50 lbs, more leg room for tall toddlers (while still allowing an adult to sit in the front passenger seat), zip cover for easy washing (genius!) and a latch tightener that is extremely easy to use and actually works to securely tighten. Several amentities of this seat are an added bonus, such as the cup holders, breathable fabric and simple clean colors. As always with Chicco, we know that our toddler is in the safest car seat on the market – the new extended fit passes every test as new parents. Chicco provided this product to me in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install! The NextFit Zip Max Extended was by far the easiest car seat I have ever installed. It is sturdy and secure and provides maximum comfort for my little one as well as peace of mind for myself and my wife. The extension also allows for a lot more leg room for a taller toddler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High-Quality Convertible Car Seat I have had the NextFit Zip Max car seat for two weeks and have been impressed with the quality from the moment I pulled it out of the box. I have a 3 year old who is tall and slim; he is within the requirements to ride rear-facing, but is also big enough to face forward. I tested the car seat in both positions to provide a thorough review. I used the lap-belt rear-facing installation. Installation directions were clear and easy to understand, and the actual installation was quick and painless. My only minor complaint is that the extended size of the car seat makes it a little more difficult to maneuver into position in the backseat of a sedan (however, I feel the extended rear-facing use outweighs this slight negative). Once installed, the car seat felt extremely secure; the bubble level indicator assured me that the seat was in the correct position. The headrest and harness were incredibly easy to adjust and tighten. My son rode comfortably in the rear-facing position, even though his legs were crossed. I think the extra leg room is a huge benefit and helps keep whiny toddlers at bay (at least when it comes to being cramped). We also love the padding on the restraints; my son didn’t complain that the buckle was digging into him. When I switched the seat around to forward-facing, I used the LATCH installation system. Again, directions were clear and the actual installation process was easy. I am super happy with how easy it is to use the Recline Adjustment Handle (we have something similar on our old car seat and I break out in a sweat every time I have to wrestle with that feature — not so with the NextFit Zip Max). The finished install felt safe and secure; again, the level indicator ensured the seat was installed correctly. My son rode comfortably in the forward-facing position (he prefers forward-facing because he can see where we are going and also because that’s what he’s been used to with his old car seat for the past 10 months). I am expecting a newborn in one month and plan to use the NextFit Zip Max for the newborn and will keep them rear-facing for an extended period of time. We haven’t had to wash the cover yet, but the quick zip removal will make that a breeze. We also love that two cup holders come included with the car seat. My son’s old car seat has no holders, so the fact that the Next Fit Zip Max has two (one for his drink and one for his snacks) is a real win! Overall, I am very impressed with the quality, safety and ease-of-install with this convertible car seat. I’m looking forward to it growing with my soon-to-come newborn! Chicco provided this product to me in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-Designed for Safety, Function, & Comfort! I am so happy with this carseat! The materials are very luxe and comfortable, and it zips off to machine wash when needed. Every detail was thoughtfully designed. It is very easy to install using the cinch system, and easy to adjust as your baby grows. I appreciate that the cupholders are removable, which allows the carseat to be more narrow if needed. Most importantly, because of all this attention to detail, I feel more confident that this carseat is designed to keep my baby safe in the car for a long time. Chicco provided me this product in exchange for my honest opinion.

Does this seat come with a detachable base? Could you detach the seat in one car and click it into another base in a different t vehicle?

Asked by: Becca1
