Review: An Easy-to-Install Chicco Car Seat with an Impressively Slim Design

Similar to their newborn diapers or those first (tiny, adorable) pajamas, your baby will eventually outgrow their infant car seat. An all-in-one car seat grows with your little one from infancy through toddlerhood and beyond giving you all the major modes of use: rear-facing with harness, forward-facing with harness and then booster mode. The new Chicco OneFit ClearTex All-In-One Car Seat checks all of these boxes while also giving you smart features like a slim design and low-emission fabrics. Babylist Scout Daniel walks us through its best features in the video above.

What It Does

Aside from doing exactly what you need it to (i.e., keep your kid safe while in the car), here are a few things that make the Chicco OneFit ClearTex All-In-One Car Seat different from other all-in-one car seats:

  1. Ten Years, One Seat: With extra rear-facing legroom, the three-in-one car seat fits your baby comfortably and safely from that first car ride as an infant all the way through elementary school, easily securing your kiddo up to age 10 from one purchase.
  2. Space Saving: A slimmer-than-usual design fits easily into your vehicle’s back seat without compromising on comfort for you or your little one. In most family-sized vehicles, that means you’ll be able to fit three across the back seat.
  3. Thoughtful Materials: Even the car seat materials offer extra peace of mind. First, this system uses “ClearTex” fabrics, which were designed to meet federal flammability standards without the use of added chemicals. This particular all-in-one system is also GREENGUARD Gold certified—meaning the air quality around your baby is improved thanks to the car seat’s low chemical emissions.
  4. Easy Installation: When it comes to installation, you have options. The first is to use your car’s LATCH connectors in tandem with SuperCinch force-multiplying LATCH tightener—an innovative installation feature from Chicco that tightens the connection between the car seat and your vehicle to help reduce car seat movement. Option two is to install the system with your car’s seat belt by using the Chicco LockSure system to keep the seat securely fastened. There’s even a QR code on the car seat that takes you straight to a Chicco website with how-to videos and guides that help explain how to correctly install and use the OneFit.

Plus, with smart features like collapsible, removable, and dishwasher-safe cup holders (genius!), removable head and body support for newborns, and safety considerations like a steel-reinforced frame and EPS energy-absorbing foam that surround your baby’s head and torso, it’s clear that the Chicco OneFit ClearTex All-In-One Car Seat was designed to keep your kid comfortable and safe from their first ride home all the way through the sippy cup years and beyond.

Why You’d Want That

Ever try riding in the back seat next to a bulky infant car seat, plus a diaper bag, plus your bag, plus an audience of your baby’s most adored lovies? If so, you understand that every inch of space matters. Luckily this car seat features a slim design that leaves valuable room without sacrificing your baby’s comfort. They’ll stay cozy at every growth stage thanks to an easily adjustable headrest, and safe thanks to a nifty ReclineSure system that helps you keep the car seat at just the right angle in every mode of use.

When combined with parenting-friendly extras like machine-washable fabrics, dishwasher-safe cup holders, and a safe and secure installation system, the Chicco OneFit ClearTex All-In-One Car Seat is a quality piece of gear designed to grow with your family.
