KeyFit 30 Zip Infant Car Seat - Genesis is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept babies safe in crash We bought these seats for our twin girls and I’m so grateful we did. Yesterday my girls (2 months old and 8lbs) and I were hit by a driver that ran a red light. Luckily we were in a new Volkswagen with lots of great safety features also, but I still had some bruises from seat belt. The girls don’t have a scratch on them or any bruising. One of the girls was just in a onesie because it was very warm out and even her legs have no marks where the straps went over them. Grateful doesn’t even begin to express it. The paramedics all mentioned that these are the best possible seats and what they recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing car seat!! I have had this car seat for almost two years now and I'm getting ready to use it with my next child due in a couple months and I couldn't be more excited. I LOVE the base system and how easy it is to take in and out of the car. I'm also a huge fan of how easy it is to take apart and clean! If you are contemplating getting the KeyFit Caddy with it, do it!!! It's a total game changer. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and will always stick with Chicco! Highly recommend!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Car Seat I bought this car seat for my grandson. I love the zipper cover especially in the cold New England weather. It is east to click and remove from the base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! Chicco is the best brand! I love this car seat! It is so stylish and comfy for my little man. I love how easy it is to install the base in the car. The car seat is easy to click in and out of the base and Chicco Bravo LE stroller. Another great feature is how easy it is to take the car seat pieces off and wash! Very sturdy and great quality! I also love that this car seat comes with the infant insert, shoulder pads, and padded headrest. Great material! I will definitely continue to use Chicco products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great snug safe ride With my previous child I bought the graco set and these are as easy to install, easy to use and I feel like my baby is safer, more snug and secure. Thank you for making such a great infant carseat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best seat! I love this car seat! I am a researcher by nature, so I read a lot about different car seats before deciding on this one. I feel confident in my decision with it being the number one rated car seat by consumer reports. I like knowing that my baby is safe as can be in the car; It's also nice knowing that if she was born small, this seat is recommended by NICU nurses because of it's secure design. There are many color options to chose from, with some of them being gender neutral. The car seat fits in both of our cars with enough room with spare, and it's very easy to remove the seat from the base. The latch system and the level indicators make installing the base a breeze. The straps are easy to adjust/tighten which is definitely a plus because I've dealt with some in the past that were not. Overall, I would highly recommend this product to other parents. Chicco provided this product to me in exchange for my honest opinion.

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.

I bought the KeyFit 30 Zip Air Car Seat and wanted to know if there was a Chicco approved car seat protector that can be used with it? Is there a specific protector recommended or is it recommended that the car seat be installed without one? Thanks!

Asked by: mar3216
I purchased one through Target by "GO" and it works great with my Chicco KeyFit 30 Zip.

Do the strap covers need to be taken off once the baby reaches a certain age or can they stay on for the length of use of the seat?

Asked by: Kris85
The shoulder pads do not need to be removed; you may continue to use them until the infant outgrows the KeyFit 30 car seat.

With the keyfit zip what weight should the infant Insert be removed

Asked by: Hfarmer
The newborn body insert must be removed once the child reaches 11lbs.  You may continue to use the head insert.  The head insert must be fastened one slot above where the shoulder straps go through the back rest.   It cannot be fastened in the same slot as the harness straps. Once the harness straps are in the upper most slot you must discontinue using the head insert.
