NextFit Convertible Car Seat - Kuma

Details

The #1-rated NextFit® convertible car seat is engineered with innovative functionality to fit your vehicle and your child simply, accurately, and securely.

NextFit® features a ReclineSure® leveling system and RideRight® bubble level-indicators to help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. With nine recline positions, ReclineSure® is designed to accommodate a wider range of vehicles in both rear-facing and forward-facing modes. Premium LATCH connectors and a SuperCinch® force-multiplying tightener help achieve a secure installation with a fraction of the effort. (When it’s time to switch from rear-facing to forward-facing, the LATCH strap passes easily through the built-in slide path for proper re-positioning.) NextFit® also has integrated belt lock-offs for alternate installation with the vehicle seatbelt.

NextFit® car seat is built to grow from newborn through preschool with removable infant body support, a two-position chest clip, six-position headrest, and no-rethread harness that can be tightened with one hand. To accommodate older children, the shoulder strap position is designed to widen automatically as the headrest is raised.

NextFit® has a steel-reinforced frame and is lined with EPS energy-absorbing foam for superior side-impact protection.

NextFit® is designed for use from 5-40 lbs in Rear-Facing mode, and from 22-65 lbs in Forward-Facing mode.

This product conforms to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 and is FAA approved for use on aircraft.

NextFit Convertible Car Seat - Kuma is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the seat We have had this car seat for just over 2 years now and love it. Its heavy and holds my son in snug. He's very tall but we were able to extend rearfacing with no issues and he never seemed uncomfortable. My only complaints are it's a bit hard for me to tighten as easily as my husband, its difficult to use the latch system when transferring vehicles and the neck straps rub on my son's neck. These may be issues that have been addressed by now. Overall we love it and will be using it with our next one with a new cover.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot machine wash it I bought it but the fact that I cannotwash it make it worthless. We most likely will be changing seats in the future so I feel we lost out money here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect car seat This car seat is amazing. It fits so snug in your car. I bought 2 other car seats before buying a Chicco. I won't ever buy any brand ever again. The latch system gets the car seat so tight, that it won't even budge. That is so important to me. I recommend this car seat to any one and everyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed! I've had this carseat for a year and must say I'm very disappointed. I wanted to love this seat but cannot. I also own the chicco infant and that is a fabulous seat. The harness/straps on the chicco convertable are so difficult to properly tighten, especially if you suffer from arthritis. If you can't snuggly secure you're child in the seat, it negates all the supposed safety benefits. The bottom plastic buckle is oddly placed and digs into the inner thigh of my son when he is wearing shorts. The sides are high and bucket-like seat, deep, so it is also difficult to get him in when it is rear facing. My son always appears uncomfortable and awkward when in the seat. I really wanted to love this seat but it has been one of my worst and expensive baby purchases. I am astounded by the number of positive reviews this seat continues to get. I'd say the only good thing is that it is a sturdily built, albeit, heavy car seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cars seat !!! We could not have asked for something better. Had purchased toddler car seats from different carriers, and not only were they hard to install but also did not have the comfort of easy reclinability as Chicco did. Very happy and bought a 2nd one for our other car as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this car seat Best car seat ever, I have two car seats like this, but different colour, and my kids really love them. They are very comfortable, easy to use, and especially those car seats really good for long trip.

Is there an adaptable canopy that can be installed to the key fit unzip? Or are y'all still working on it that option?

Asked by: 84Claudio
I am sorry, but the Chicco NextFit&reg; Convertible Car Seat does not have a canopy since it resides inside of an automobile or vehicle. If you should have any other questions or concerns, please contact Chicco Customer Service at http://www.chiccoshop.com/contactus or call at 1-877-424-4226. Thank you.

does it come with ISOFIX mounts? or would i need to buy that separately? thanks

Asked by: Pink85
ISOFIX is the international standard for attachment points for child safety seats in passenger cars. The system has other regional names such as LATCH for the United States. The Nextfit car seat comes with Latches that came be attached to the Lower Anchors in a US vehicle.
