Choosen over the Mesa UppaBaby
I chose this over the Mesa Uppababy. Why? well for starters the uppababy did not seem very well made for the price, I didn't like that you can see the styrofoam insert of the backing. It made it look cheap. I did like the look of the Mesa but the Britax also looked good and is very well made....from the detailing of the stitching and the cushioning. I like that the Britax was highly rated for safety. It is on the heavy side but I didn't notice much of a difference with the Mesa since is also rate pretty good for safety. The price was also the deciding factor. for the amount of money of the Mesa I really wanted it to be flawless but I did find the Britax to be very well made for an even better price, $100 difference. This is a comfortable seat for my child. I have a small baby (6lbs) so I know it will last me a while. Some people complained that their larger babies grew out of it sooner. All of the adjustments on this model are very easy to use. Most importantly if safety is the driving decision I would choose this model.
ConsA little on the heavy side but I'm pretty well in shape. It doesn't bother me. The metal components make me feel that this is safe.
