Chicco USA is about to release a new product and after 12 months of tightly zipped lips, we’re finally able to share the details! Please join me in congratulating Chicco on the newest member of their carseat family, MyFit Harness + Booster combination seat. MyFit will be arriving in stores mid-January 2018. There will be 2 versions available, MyFit and MyFit LE. I will discuss the differences between them but first let’s talk about specs, features, and measurements.

Differences between MyFit & MyFit LE

MyFit will not feature SuperCinch force-multiplying system on the LATCH strap but will still have the premium push-on lower LATCH connectors. There will be 6 fashions available at launch, which is a lot for a brand new product! MSRP is $199.

Fashions: Notte; Lanai; Fanthom; Gardenia; Canyon; Indigo

     

MyFit LE will retail for $249 and there will be 3 fashions available at launch. It will offer all the features of regular MyFit but will also include:

  • SuperCinch force-multiplying system on the LATCH strap (same as NextFit convertible)
  • Comfort waist belts (these are pads that attach to the hip straps on the harness and make loading child easier by keeping the buckle tongues in place)
  • Kid console (storage pod that inserts into cup holder)
  • Premium comfort package with air mesh panels in cover, leatherette armrests, and premium fabrics

LE fashions: Anthem; Starlet; Venture
