What's Included:

Car seat & base


Side Impact Protection

MESA?s integrated headrest design keeps an infant?s head stationary during a side impact collision resulting in up to 4X better HIC (Head Injury Criterion) score than other premium infant car seat brands.

Optimized for Preemies 4lb+

MESA?s adjustable harness and crotch strap settings allow it to securely fit infants as small as 4 pounds. As your baby grows, MESA adjusts accommodating babies as large as 35 pounds. The included infant insert is ideal when your baby is between 4 and 8 pounds.

Easy, Secure Installation

MESA is the only infant car seat with a unique technology utilizing a tightness indicator and self-retracting LATCH connectors for fast, accurate and easy installation. An indicator window changes from red to green for visual confirmation the base has been installed correctly every time.

Hideaway Canopy with SPF

The integrated SPF 50+ canopy stores away to eliminate any interference when adjusting the handlebar.

NEW for 2017! Softer luxe material, improved tailored fit, increased padding for added comfort, and a travel bag accessory.

With its unique design and engineering, the MESA combines safety, simplicity, and now a lighter carrier. From easy installation to innovative safety features and a one-hand stroller release, MESA has taken the guesswork and hassle out of infant car seats.

MESA combines the safety, functionality, and ease of use parents and babies need to feel protected and reassured. The MESA is the only infant car seat on the market that uses SMARTSECURE System. This unique technology utilizes a tightness indicator and self-retracting mini LATCH connectors to facilitate quick, accurate, and easy installation.

With a keen eye for designing stylish and sleek products that combine features and functions new parents want?plus innovations they never knew were possible, the MESA works directly with the VISTA smart luxury stroller and the CRUZ stroller systems without the purchase of adapters. Additional MESA features include:

SIP Side Impact Protection integrated with a no-rethread harness that enables front adjustment access to facilitate easy and accurate harness position - optimized for preemies.

Convenience A one-push stroller release on the carry handle makes stroller-to-car transfer smooth and easy.

Protection A hideaway SPF 50+ canopy protects infants from the sun, but when not in use hides away. The MESA also has integrated storage pockets for the infant restraint buckles to keep the metal parts cool when the seat is exposed to sun and within easy-reach for child restraint.

The MESA has an extremely low profile and slim base with a finished bottom to protect car upholstery and eliminates the need for seat protectors, which can compromise car seat installation and safety.

Love the Non-Toxic!
I've done a lot of research on this car seat and can't wait to use it! I'm due with twins and chose not to go with a Chicco again because I felt my son never fit in it properly in his infant stage, mostly because he was short at 17 3/4 ". My twins are expected to be preemie size and after comparing with the Chicco in the store, I feel they will fit better. Also, a huge bonus is that this car seat is non-toxic and without flame retardent! Really, a huge bonus for me! This car seat is also rated as one of the top for safety! I will update my review once babies actually use!
ProsNon-Toxic One of the Safetst on the Market Large Hood
ConsHeavy Only fits with Uppa strollers, however I've used this to my advantage and will just move babies to thier strollers which is actually better for them. Car seats should only be used for car time to help prevent chin to chest problems and issues with head growth.

We were super happy at how easy our MESA was to install. We had a little trouble getting our baby strapped in tight enough at first, but we figured out how to loosen the strap to pull it tight enough. Otherwise everything has been so easy to use. Couldnā€™t be happier with our seat. Itā€™s also so easy to use in our Cruz. So happy with our purchase.
ProsSuper easy to install.

A bit on the expesive side, but quality justifies it!
If you can get it around 230 $ during a sale or something that will be a steal, but at the 299.99$ normal price it seems a bit expensive. However, considering you need to have only two sets of adapters for rumble seats, bassinets and car seats seem pretty justified. we like the sturdiness and the extra warranty of 3 years they offer if you register the product online.

Looks Great & Great Quality
This car seat looks great and the quality is excellent. It's very simple to detach the car seat from the base unit in the car and the stroller. Our baby falls asleep in the car seat every time we need to drive anywhere.
Cons Somewhat heavy but that is to be expected when quality materials are being used.

Safety worth the extra cost
Safety features on base - level indicator and tightness indicator. The tightness indicator led me to find one latch clip had come undone, something I may not have found until many more car trips.
ProsEasy install Safety features on the base - level and tightness indicator Baby comfortable in infant seat Attractive, modern design Works beautifully with Uppababy Vista as travel system
ConsHeavier in comparison to Chicco Keyfit Straps short

This uppababy system is fantastic. I purchased the Cruz and this Mesa interlocks with the stroller perfectly. I went with the indigo color and it's better in person.

Easy to Use
Super easy to use, no fuss. Easy to click on and off of base, not too heavy. Seems Like I may get more than 6 months use, as it seems to accommodate a taller infant. Great review from consumer reports
ConsMy baby turned out to be a little smaller, so it seems the position in the seat is a little uncomfortable for her, but I'm sure all car seats have some what if a comfort issue. But despite her small stature she is still very secure.

Happy with the Car Seat
We are very happy with our UppaBabby MESA Car Seat. The installation was quick and easy. The only reason I am not getting it 5 stars is the weight. It is a bit heavy. Our little one has not arrived just yet (a few more weeks), but just carrying the car seat without the little one it is a bit heavy. Overall great product, well made, safe and it looks great.

Love that the straps move up and down to adjust to size of baby, great side protection and retractable canopy. East to put on and off uppa baby strollers. Also accommodates a taller infant.

ConsHeavier than other car seats

Best Carseat in the market
Uppapaby offers a comprehensive travel system for parent who wants to organize things in one brand like me. I wanted Mesa because it was one of the best confident product in the market. I looked for strollers that fit Mesa but I didn't want to spend money on adapters which is not even sure if it will work properly. Then I found that cruz fits perfectly with Mesa without adapters. I got Cruz, Mesa, Universal bassinet and Infant SnugSeats from Uppababy and that was all we needed.
ProsComprehensive selection of travel system Seat without bar on the floor

So simple to use! We're first time parents, and we had heard all the horror stories of figuring out the car seat - we got this car seat base into the car in 3 seconds the first time, seriously! The seat just snaps in and the color indicators make it easy to know its secure. We love it!!
