Comments: Chicco’s newest booster car seat, MyFit is the company’s first foray into the harnessed combo booster category dominated by Britax’s Frontier. Set for release in early 2018, the Chicco MyFit will feature a four position recline, lower anchor tether LATCH and a bubble level indicator.
It will come in two versions: the base model and a fancier version with Chicco’s Super Cinch installation feature and covered snack tray. The nine-position headrest is lined with EPS foam for crash protection, as is the torso area.
We saw a prototype of this seat and were impressed. Chicco is bringing its well-thought out design to harnessed boosters after huge successes in the infant car seat and convertible car seat categories. Boosters is the only car seat category the company isn’t in yet.
We’ll update this review as the final seat comes to market. Rating: Not Yet.
