Absolutely love this new design! From the fabric to the upgraded features. It is a tad heavy but that’s no big deal with you keep safety in mind. I do wish this was compatible with more strollers… but definitely wasn’t a deal breaker.

Great piece for stress free and stylish parenting
February 23, 2024
We have mesa max since our kid was born and after using it for 6 months, we can confidently say it is a solid purchase. First things first, safety is non-negotiable, right? The Mesa Max nails it with the SMARTSecure System. Installing it is like a walk in the park, and you don't need an engineering degree to figure it out. Plus, the side impact protection is like having a little fortress around your kiddo. Oh, and did I mention the load leg? It's like the secret weapon, adding extra stability and reducing rotation in case of a crash – the ultimate peace of mind! Let's be real, aesthetics matter too. The Mesa Max doesn't just do the job; it looks good doing it. Stylish, functional, and a color palette that's easy on the eyes – it's a win-win.It’s not just a baby gear; it's an investment in stress-free and stylish parenting. Highly, highly recommend! 🚗👶✨

Amazing! Almost perfect
January 27, 2024
I love how safe and secure my baby is in this, and the materials are great. The canopy comes down nicely to block sun from baby’s face. It was super easy to install and the load leg adds an extra sense of security. It’s also been nice to use the European routing method when needed. That said, it’s on the heavier side of infant car seats, so once your baby gets bigger you may be wanting to switch to convertible sooner rather than later.

Mesa Max for safety and comfort

Great in compact/coupe cars
November 21, 2023
The light color is really nice for the hot summer. I was a little worried that with the load leg, the base would not fit in the back of my beetle. It does! And a smaller person can still fit in the passenger seat. If you have a compact car or coupe this car seat fits.
  • Even with the load leg and rebound bar the base and car seat fit in coupes.

Great carseat!

Easy to instal and to use. Extended canopy is great as it allows to hide the baby’s face from the sun. A load leg limits the motion of the car seat, so the carseat feels very secure.

We LOVE the UPPABaby Mesa MAX! We started with a Maxi Cosi and it just doesn’t compare. My 7 week old is still small enough to have the newborn insert and I never question if she’s in it safely. The seat is lightweight itself and compact in our car. Our first car seat was so bulky and didn’t leave much room, but the front passenger seat is still spacious with the Mesa Max installed behind it! If you get the Vista stroller to match, getting in and out of the car takes just seconds. I cannot brag on this car seat enough! Thank you UppaBaby and Albeebaby!

Even Better than Before!
April 26, 2023
I love the upgrades Uppababy made to the Mesa for the Mesa Max! We had the Mesa for our two previous kids and LOVED it so we decided to purchase the Max for this third baby. The newborn insert is exceptionally comfortable for baby and I love the extended canopy (which was a pet peeve with the regular Mesa). I also appreciate the piece of mind of the enhanced safety features with the additional position of the handle and the load leg. You just can't go wrong with Uppababy products!

Happy with Albee baby experience
March 21, 2023
Product arrived with some discoloration on the infant seat insert. Uppababy was able to send a replacement quickly. So far we haven’t actually used the product as we are waiting for our baby to arrive. I was happy to get my hands on this product through Albee baby and also be able to use the registry discount.
