Extended Use. Maximum Comfort
The NextFit Zip® Max offers 25% more legroom* in rear-facing mode, leaving room to grow all the way up to 50 pounds before transitioning forward. Extended calf support in forward-facing mode offers first-class comfort for older children. A full-body newborn positioner, 9-position headrest, and padded, no-rethread harness accommodate growth throughout both modes.

Easiest to Install Correctly
The NextFit Zip® Max is designed to deliver the confidence of a secure install with remarkably simple leveling and tightening. A SuperCinch® force-multiplying tightener and LockSure® belt-locking system make it easy to achieve a tight fit with LATCH or with the vehicle seat belt. DuoGuard® provides two layers of side-impact protection with a deep rigid shell and EPS energy-absorbing foam. The seat shell is also reinforced with a steel frame.

Engineered for Comfort & Convenience
The seat transitions smoothly from vehicle to vehicle, and between modes, thanks to premium LATCH connectors with click-on attachment and push-button release, plus a built-in slide path to re-position the LATCH strap for forward-facing mode.

For added comfort and convenience, the NextFit Zip® Max features a machine-washable, zip-off seat pad and a breathable 3D AirMesh backrest.

NextFit Zip Air Max Extended-Use Convertible Car Seat - Atmos is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super hot, super big We loved the chicco infant set we own. Were hoping to find something larger and more accommodating for our 2yo and a Toyota Sienna, which has deep bucket seats. This seat runs very hot, this poor Texas child is drenched on his back after a short time in the seat. Much worse than the Britax we are replacing, temp wise. Easy to install and adjust, into the vehicle, the easiest of 3 seats we have owned. But it is very heavy, and very tall on the sides, making it difficult to access. This is further hindered by a harness system that is more difficult to use. We are adjusted all the way down, and still he sits quite upright, although within the on-board level. i notice a little apnea style snoring when he falls asleep. We are not sure why a mini-van and a car seat are so hard to exist harmonically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this seat, great for taller children! There are so many different car seats to choose from and it is hard to know where to begin! We had the Keyfit30 infant seat for both of our boys and enjoyed it so we wanted to continue using a Chicco brand seat. Our son is on the taller side so the Chicco NextFit is perfect with the extended legroom! In addition to the legroom our other favorite feature is how you just unzip to clean the seat which makes it much easier to reassemble! Another perk is the mesh fabric which helps our son not get as hot. I definitely would recommend checking this seat out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm Jealous of My Toddler! I wish I could ride in style like my 13 month old in her sleek, modern, and super comfortable Chicco NextFit Zip Max car seat! And I love that the elegant design takes inevitable messes into account -- the removable padding and cup holders (guys there are TWO cup holders! Necessary? Probably not, but definitely super cool!) make this thing easy to clean. I could not believe how EASY it was to install in my car. It's a bit heavy, but moving it from one vehicle to another wouldn't be much of a hassle. Shockingly, despite the extended size, it fits in my little sedan without issue or complete depletion of the front passenger's legroom (It is in the rear-facing position, so I cannot comment on how much space it uses in front-facing mode). One issue I have faced is that the button that releases the straps is very well protected from small, curious hands... Unfortunately, it is quite a challenge for me to reach into the small slit of fabric and push it, especially with my long fingernails. It takes me longer than I'd like to get my toddler out of the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Car Seat, Easy to Install The NextFit Zip Max Extended-Use Convertible Car Seat is a great investment for us as we look forward to using this one seat for years to come. We love that our 8 lbs newborn fits securely and comfortably in the seat now, and that we can continue to use it until he is 65 lbs. The seat was really easy to install in our SUV and doesn't require the front seat to be in an awkward/too forward position. Baby is comfortable and snug. We appreciate the padding on the harness and how it stays out of the way while securing baby in the seat. It is a very solid car seat, and we have complete confidence baby is safe. Love that you can remove and wash the seat pad too. Chicco provided this product to me in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to clean Moving from baby carrier to a convertible car seat is a big milestone for parents and baby. Our little one has transitioned very well to her new car seat. One of my favorite features of this seat is its zip feature for removing and washing the cushion. We have already used it once and it has made my life so much easier. For the first time I feel like I am not having a wrestling match with a car seat. I strongly recommend this car seat. Chicco provides me with this car seat for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe & Sturdy Car Seat Chicco. You know you are getting quality and peace of mind with their products. This car seat is no different. It has a durable liner which is easy to take on/off and makes it easy to clean. The padding is strong feeling, yet comfortable. Very easy to install. The extension gives the longer legged kiddos (my three year old has really long stems) plenty of space to move their legs around and feel comfortable. I have nothing but great things to say about this seat. Highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars all around! This is a top-notch convertible car seat. The new Max feature allows for 50 lbs rear facing with about a 3” extension for leg room (great added feature!) forward or rear facing and then will hold up to a 65 lb child forward-facing. I’d definitely have to say that this upgrade makes this car seat well worth the purchase, as your child will get longer use out of it. The padding is well-cushioned and comfortable and easily zips off to wash when it gets dirty. There are 2 cup holders on either side of the seat that can be folded in or detached if you don’t want them there and can be placed in the dishwasher as well…However, a quick rinse or cleaning wipe cleans these holders just fine. The harness strap can be adjusted easily with a button (not easily accessible for kids) and it seems there is more room to load and unload baby into and out of the car seat than the original model, which makes traveling and lifting a lot easier. Another safety feature that I feel is a good addition is that there is an indicator on the base to make sure there is not too much overhang on the seat. There are also 9 headrest positions that will keep adjusting with my baby as he grows. This car seat was very easy to install and tighten…however a little heavier but likely due to the great design of this product. It is definitely well-designed with safety being top priority and made with quality material. I highly recommend this Chicco product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Function and Comfort! We’re still using our NextFit Zip Max car seat in the rear facing position and the installation was very easy and feels very secure. Our daughter is trending very high in the height percentile index so the thought of the extra leg room is very appealing. She seems very content and comfortable in her seat, and the cup holder is a great little feature. We have unzipped the fabric and washed once after an accident and it was easy enough to get the fabric on and off. We’re still a few months off being ready for the front-facing position, but being as I received this product from Chicco in exchange for an honest opinion I figured I would test the set up to see how it worked and the conversion and set up was really simple. Naturally, our primary focus is on safety, but the fact that our daughter also seems quite comfortable and content in her car seat is an added bonus. This car seat seems like it is built for the long-haul and we’re looking forward to many years of use and seat expansions! I would recommend this product to friend and family.

Is this car seat longer then the IX and other Air versions? We do t want to get a seat that will make it more difficult to fit into our smaller car. The Nextfit Zip is what we have now and requires the passenger seat to be pushed further up to install. 

Asked by: DeoT
I tried the Nextfit MAX and the Nextfit Air in my small car.  In rear facing position they fit in my car nearly the same.  I didn’t notice any difference in how far forward my seat had to be.
