The #1-rated Infant Car Seat in America!
The KeyFit® 30 is engineered with innovative features that make it the easiest infant car seat to install simply, accurately, and securely, every time. KeyFit® 30 Zip Air also features stylish zipper accents, a quick-remove seat pad for machine washing, and a breathable 3D AirMesh backrest.

Easiest to Install Correctly
KeyFit® 30’s stay-in-car base has a ReclineSure® leveling foot and two RideRight® bubble level-indicators to help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. The base is also equipped with premium LATCH connectors and a SuperCinch® tightener for a secure fit with a fraction of the effort! For alternate installation with the vehicle seat belt, clear belt routing and integrated lock-offs make it easy to position, tighten and lock the belt into place. 

Tailored for Comfort
To accommodate newborns, the car seat carrier includes removable head and body support with reversible knit/mesh fabrics for all-season comfort. A five-point harness with one-pull tightening helps keep baby secure, and the carrier shell is lined with EPS energy-absorbing foam for improved impact protection. For comfortable shade from the sun, the zip-off canopy features a breathable mesh window and extra zip-on visor. A stylish zip-around boot creates a cozy environment.

Built for Everyday Convenience
The KeyFit® 30 is designed for travel system use with compatible strollers from Chicco. The carrier secures easily to the base and strollers with a reassuring audible click. A two-position carry-handle and one-hand release make it just as easy to remove.

Product Manuals

KeyFit 30 Zip infant car seat & base - Genesis is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a GREAT car seat! This is our second Keyfit30 (first Keyfit30 zip) which is for our 3rd child who is due in the spring. Chicco provided this product to me in exchange for my honest opinion. REASONS I LOVE THIS CAR SEAT: Number one-- It is super easy to install in your car. The instructions are clear, the bubble levels let you know when you've leveled the seat, and the LATCH connectors tighten easily with ONE PULL strap. Also, the instruction manual has a storage compartment so you don't lose it if you have look something up (like how to install it in a different type of car or without the base or when baby needs to switch to a bigger seat). My husband and I have joked that Chicco's seats are "marriage savers" because while we've heard other people complain about installing their kid's car seats, Chicco's are so easy to install we don't argue or get mad at each other while doing it. Other reasons I love this seat... --The straps are easily loosened and tightened, AND the shoulder pads are now easily removable! Just unvelcro them and you can toss them in the wash whenever they get drool or spit up on them. --The canopy can be unzipped on the back so that it rotates all the way forward in front of baby's face for when the sun is coming in the back of the car. The visor on the front also zips off or the whole canopy can be removed completely. --It comes with a zip off "boot" which is like a padded blanket for over baby's legs, and won't blow away in the winter wind. --It's quality AND it's pretty. The fabric is soft and plush and not plastic-y feeling. The serene model is a light gray and light turquoise. I think it can easily be used boy or girl. --It comes with all of these features, but doesn't break the bank. Some infant seats can be over $300! --It's compatible with A TON of strollers. OBSERVATIONS/POTENTIAL CONCERNS: --The padding on this car seat is plush, and I remember with our original Keyfit30 that our kids would sweat on their backs in the summer because the plushness didn't allow for a lot of airflow. I will be curious to see if that is still the same with my 3rd child and the new seat come summer. That being said, I know Chicco also makes a "Keyfit30 Zip Air" that is supposed to have a more breathable material on the seat (but maybe that one would be colder in the winter? I don't know.) --When I read a description of the Keyfit30 zip (on another website), I thought the actual seat cover would zip off much like the Chicco Nextfit Zip does. That's not the case. The cover is still easily removable and washable, but it's not with a zipper. Just a heads up in case you read a review on another website like I did. The parts that zip off are the canopy, visor, and boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love chicco! I bought chicco travel systems with my first two girls, with my third baby we got a graco. We had to replace the car seat, and we bought a chicco again:)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely more blue than teal I just purchased this for our baby girl, thinking it was more teal than blue. We just received it and took it out of the box and was sad to see that it's more blue, so much so that I'm going to return it. Chicco doesn't seem to have many options for the girls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice car seat I bought this for my son that was born under 7 lbs and it works great with the infant insert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy and cozy! We just took our son home from the hospital today and did not make a peep from this car seat. He was so cozy and comfy nuzzled against the headrest. My husband said it took 20 seconds to install as well. Great car seat! Chicco products are fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't used it yet but this is my second Chicco! This is my second Chicco car seat. I adored my first and knew I would be getting another Chicco for this baby. I love that the cover is completely removable and it's easy to remove. The baby will be born in August but the cover will be helpful come October when the wind gets chilly. No struggling with a canopy or blanket. I love how easily Chicco is installed and the fabric is so soft! The multicolored zipper was an unexpected and pleasant surprise!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO IN LOVE I have had this seat now for almost 2 weeks. My baby girl appears very comfortable in the seat and it is very snug fitting that I really feel like she is safe. The seat is also very easy to get in and out of the car/base. My favorite part is the CANOPY COVER, it covers past midway for extra sun protection and with having another son who loves to be outside, I feel safe having the extra protection for outside at the park, etc. The one thing that I don't like is that the base does not have a front tie down for my car, but it is secure with all the other straps. All is ALL and amazing seat and my baby is safe :)

We just received the Keyfit30 zip as a gift for our second child.  We already have the basic KeyFit 30 manufactured in 2014 along with 3 bases for that seat.  Can we use the new KeyFit 30 zip with the old (unexpired) bases?

I have a2011 Britax B-Ready stroller and want to add a new car seat to it,  I have read that the Chicco key fit car seat can work with the Britax universal car seat addapter, is this true?  I like your car seat but don't want to buy another stroller.
