Couldn’t Be Happier!
We decided on this Chicco Keyfit 30 car seat for our first child and have been extremely pleased with it so far. We did our research before deciding on this one, comparing safety factors, ease of use, and style – it excels in every area!
Knowing that our little one is safe up to 30 lbs puts my mind at ease, plus gives us a little more time in this car seat before having to make the move to the next size seat. I love that the seat has a nice firm “click” sound when inserting into the base or the stroller to let me know it is secured properly. Also, installing the base was a breeze. Very easy, and the bubble indicator lets me know the base is staying in place after several uses. The newborn insert was perfect right from the beginning, even for our little 6 lb guy, so no need to buy an extra infant insert! Also, the all-weather boot does a great job of keeping him warm and cozy, so the extra car seat cover I was going to purchase was not necessary either. This seat also has a great quality feel to it – sturdy and stylish. Overall, a great product that I am happy to say we are very pleased with!

Car seat & stroller combo
I bought this as a combo to use with my grand daughter since it had very high reviews, my daughter also has the same just in a different color. I love it, she fits in it so well and its easy to adjust. The stroller is smooth and easy to push and also easy to fold!! I chose this color because it can be used for boy or girl...

We have used chicco products in the past and have been very happy. We are going with chicco again this time around and can't wait to see the yellow and grey in person!

Great, with a couple small complaints
My husband and I spent a lot of time in the store playing with car seats and travel systems. We chose the chicco cortina key fit travel system in romantic because
1. We liked this car seat the best over others. It's really nice that you can hear it click in place to the base. The buttons on the straps seemed easier to use over others too.
2. The stroller was BY FAR the easiest to open and close. You can't quite do it one handed but you almost can. It has just one handle that you have to squeeze and pull and it pops open.
3. You can adjust the handle height on the stroller. I'm somewhat tall so I appreciate that I can raise the handle to a comfortable height.
4. I would have purchased pretty much any color, but I really like the classic black and grey of the romantic line.
My biggest complaint is that the basket in the bottom of the stroller is shallow, and the opening for it is very narrow when you have the infant seat clipped in. So we end up hanging our diaper bag from the stroller handles (probably not what you're supposed to do, but we watch the weight of it.) My other minor complaint is that the car seat visor gets in the way of the car seat handle. We just removed it.
Overall, I think the advantages of this system greatly outweigh the bad.

This product is a good purchase
It was easy to assemble, easy to clean and great storage. My baby is now a 2 year old toddler and fits great, stroller still in great shape even with all the use it has had.

Carseat is good, stroller is lacking in many ways
The carseat has been wonderful, no complaints there. But, the thing is, you can get a good, comparable carseat from a dozen other companies.
The stroller is lacking. The wheels are small and wobbly. They definitely don't go over rough terrain well, such as grass. The basket is small and cannot be reached easily when the carseat is attached and/or the seat is fully reclined. I had to take the carseat off of the stroller and push the seat up every time I wanted to retrieve something from the basket. Quite frustrating when you have an infant in the carseat or fully reclined in the seat itself and you have to keep removing the carseat and/or pushing up the seat to get to your diaper bag. The canopy is small and does not provide even remotely close to sufficient sun blockage. The seat does not go to a completely upright angle, it's always slightly tipped back even in the most upright position, my daugther is always pulling herself forward to try and get upright. The straps are too long for a large one year old even at their shortest length. The back of the stroller has this long hanging canopy part that is both ugly and unnecessary. When folded, the stroller is gigantic and awkward to lift. I have a small SUV and it takes up nearly the entire trunk and is difficult to get in and out. I used the Keyfit Caddy as long as I possibly could (awesome product!) and when I stopped using the carseat, changed to a convertible carseat, and had to start using this stroller... I just bought a new one (of a completely different brand)! If I could do it again, I would NOT purchase this travel system.

Super easy system
Installing the carseat base in the car is literally as easy as 2 clicks and a pull. And opening and folding the stroller uses only one handle. I can almost open it with one hand :) Two things though that I wish were different: 1) I wish the storage area below the stroller was taller. My diaper bag will only fit into it if I turn the bag on its side. Not cool when I have bottles in the bag that can spill. My bag isn't large at all, either. I have the Vera Bradley Baby Bag (2012). And 2) my daughter gets pretty warm when sitting in this seat. I wish there were air vents for her in the seat itself. Otherwise, a great system. Easy to use, not too heavy either.
