Our experience using this car seat has shown it to be built for long-term usage. It effortlessly transforms from a 5-point harness for toddlers to a belt-positioning booster for bigger kids. Safety is clearly a priority for this seat, as the DuoGuard provides two levels of side-impact protection with a deep rigid shell and EPS energy-absorbing foam for both head and body support. Plus, the steel-reinforced frame adds another layer of protection.
Installing the Chicco MyFit was simple, thanks to the premium LATCH connectors and LockSure belt-tightening system. The RideRight bubble levels and ReclineSure leveling system make it easy to ensure the seat is properly fitted within the vehicle.
The car seat’s comfort features include a 9-position headrest and a 4-position recline. Plus, the ErgoBoost seat is contoured and has dual-density foam padding for a more comfortable ride in both modes. We also appreciated the two dishwasher-safe CupFolders that fold away to save space when not in use, making it a convenient travel booster seat.

Installation is made simpler with premium LATCH connectors, belt-tightening system, and leveling features ensuring a proper fit in your vehicle.

In conclusion, the Chicco MyFit Harness & Booster Car Seat provides both comfort and security, making it a great choice for families on the go.
The minor downside is that your little one has to reach the back of the seat to buckle its 5-point harness. However, the headrest release button is easily accessible and can be adjusted using just one hand, even when the seat is occupied.
There’s a cup holder placed at the end of the right armrest and handy trays recessed under both armrests, providing a place for your child’s favorite drink and some extra storage. This makes it comfortable for long journeys.

Ease of Installation
While using the Chicco MyFit Harness & Booster Car Seat, we found the installation process to be quite straightforward. Thanks to its premium LATCH connectors and LockSure belt-tightening system, you can easily install the car seat in either harness or seat belt mode. Additionally, the RideRight bubble levels and ReclineSure leveling system ensure that the car seat fits properly in your vehicle.

This made the Chicco MyFit Harness & Booster Car Seat an excellent travel companion for our child.
In terms of comfort, some users found the padding behind the head to be insufficient, but this was not universally agreed upon. Despite the minor cons, the overall user-friendliness of this car seat made it a top choice for us.
