Small and stylish (Genesis style/color)
I just got this booster seat for my 5 year old son due to a need to move to a smaller booster seat in my vehicle. I have a smaller vehicle and I was impressed what a difference in space this booster made compared to the Recaro Harnessed Highback booster he was using previously. I still use the Recaro Booster for my other younger child that still needs a harness. I recommend the Genesis color due to it being more subdued if you are trying to stay with the style of your fabric in your car.
Some things I noticed:
-Seat will recline with your seat. The back actually falls to the position of what ever its leaning against. If it isn't leaning against anything and a child sits on it, it will collapse backwards.
-Zip feature provides you with removable covers for seat, back, and armrests. Nice if your children are dirty at times.
-wings are not as pronounced as some other models so if you have a small car it is easier to get them in the chair.
-Latch system is easy to use with the single tightening mechanism in the front.
-detachable back, but I recommend using it since it places the seat belt better around the shoulder than without the back.
-the cup holders aren't rigid. they actually are rubber like and bend a little around the outside edge. It also comes with a container you can place in the cup holder too that I noticed wasn't shown in the pictures (visible in my picture)
Overall I was very impressed with the seat. I truly liked the style and the size of the seat and my son said it was comfortable. Also if you are having problems connecting the seat belt like I did (connector was stuck in seat and hard to get to for adult and impossible for a child), I would look into getting a seat belt extender so you can reach it better. My child was able to disconnect easily though.

Skimped on the head protection
I love the removable cover and the super cute design on this as well as the extra large snack/lego cup, but I just returned it because the head protection seems very lightly padded. As soon as you touch it, you can feel the hard styrofoam (versus soft padding) which isn't what I would expect from Chicco. I still have my Chicco stroller and infant seat because they were such good quality, but I feel like the head protection on this product is lacking. This is my initial transition from car seat to booster for my 5 year old and safety is paramount to me, so if anyone has any feedback or opinions about the safest booster, I would appreciate it. Also, maybe I'm wrong about the head protection and this is typical construction...?
Also, there are a few reviews on the Chicco site that echo my disappointment with the quality- a few people said the construction is flimsy and the covers came apart or couldn't be attached again properly:[...]

I adore Chicco products. We had the Keyfit, the Nextfit, and now we are thrilled to have the Kidfit. It's estimated something like 90% of kids are not properly strapped into their child safety restraints in vehicles. Many seats compound the issue by being difficult to use and install. Chicco products are not only the finest construction, but also the simplest and most intuitive car seats on the market. I spent many years as a police officer working traffic, especially wrecks, and there's nothing else I'd trust my kid in.

So far the seat has been great. Fits well in our Subaru Outback
So far the seat has been great. Fits well in our Subaru Outback. My kiddo says is very comfy and I like that the cover zips for easy wash. I also wanted alligator clips and latch attachment in a booster. Would purchase another!

4 year old approved!
We had a Chicco next fit so when it was time to find a booster seat it was a no brainer! This booster is easy to put in and easy to take out. I love the pattern and the best part is the cover can easily be unzipped and removed for easy washing. My son thinks the seat is comfy and the cup holders are an added bonus!

I absolutely love this seat
I absolutely love this seat. I just bought this for my 4 year old daughter, and she thinks it's great too!
The seat is deep, so she won't have any trouble sitting comfortably as she grows. The padding seems to be very soft. I love the design of the seat, it is very stylish! The zip off, and interchangeable, printed covers are great for easy clean up.
Couldn't be more happy!

This is a great booster. I drive an SUV
This is a great booster. I drive an SUV, and my 4 year old grabs the booster to pull herself up into the car. We needed one that latched into the vehicle, and this one works very well. The seat's outer dimensions are pretty narrow, so it's easy to get to the seatbelt stalk for buckling, unlike with some other seats. I have found the belt guides to provide a perfect fit for her, and she loves her seat. In fact, she was adamant about getting rid of her other seats once she had a taste of this one.
I hate the little toy holder that goes into the cup holder. It makes it nearly impossible to route the seatbelt. Do yourself a favor and don't even show it to your kiddos. My daughter loves the thing, so I spend a lot of time fighting with it. I've made her learn to put it in the holder by herself, but I still end up having to take it out to help her get buckled in.

LOVE LOVE LOVE
When my daughter was ready to move out of her toddler car seat, I researched and found this one. Great purchase!! We have taken many road trips the last few months and she told me this car seat is much more comfortable than her orange one (Graco model)
