Focused primarily on making strollers, UPPAbaby only has one car seat that it sells, and that is the MESA. It’s meant for infants only, however it doesn’t skip any of the details when it comes to safety. It has many safety features present in car seats by other manufacturers.
MESA accommodates infants up to 35 pounds, while the MESA itself weighs less than 10 pounds, has an adjustable headrest, has soft and breathable fabrics for ventilation and is easily installed in a car. The real attraction to UPPAbaby’s MESA car seat is the fact that it is the only environmentally friendly fireproof car seat.
UPPAbaby’s MESA uses what’s called the SmartSecure system, making it possible to install the car seat in mere seconds. It also has an integrated headrest that’s adjustable, and is equipped with side impact protection. MESA uses EPP foam to distribute crash forces, and is designed to minimize whiplash and head trauma.
The MESA is all about comfort, with inserts you can use to wedge your baby into place, ensuring ultimate security. MESA’s price tag ranges from $300-$350, depending on the color.
While it is unfortunate that UPPAbaby only has one option for car seats, especially considering all of the attention to detail they put into the MESA, the one they make is top of the line. If fire is a real concern where you live, then the MESA is the obvious choice.
