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.

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.

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.

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. The MESA comes in four fashions: DREW (tangerine), SEBBY (teal), LINDSEY (wheat), and JAKE (black).

Great for preemies and safe!

I love the seat, my daughter was born a month early and we felt so comfortable with her in this seat, she fit snuggly and we even took the seat on international travels. its study and light to carry when needed. The base can be heavy, but leaving that in the car and having her locked in gave us a great sense of security. Easy to remove fabric pieces and launder :) overall very happy with the purchase :)

The adjustable headrest is AWESOME. Re-threading carseats is annoying so it's nice to be able to get a quick custom fit for baby. This is a great car seat all around. Looks nice, the material is soft, it's easy to install, and most importantly it's highly rated for safety. The only con would be the weight, but hey, it just means I'll get stronger over time.

We have the Vista double stroller and it just made life so much easier to have a car seat that was compatible. So easy to install, easy to move in and out of the stroller. Easy to adjust buckle. Everything about it is easy.

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.
