9 Reasons We Love the UPPAbaby MESA Max Infant Car Seat
Bringing the next generation in safety, innovation, and enhanced comfort, the UPPAbaby MESA Max infant car seat is designed with thoughtful details and robust features for the ultimate car seat solution. Its sturdy build with included load leg, anti-rebound+ panel, and infinite adjustable headrest will give parents reassurance every ride. You’ll be amazed by the incredible features of the UPPAbaby MESA Max, including a brand-new, completely redesigned base. Let’s take a closer look at what’s new on this infant seat.
1. Top-Notch Safety Features
The first thing to notice about the UPPAbaby MESA Max is the impressive array of upgraded safety features, setting it apart from the UPPAbaby MESA V2. When it comes to safety, the MESA Max reigns supreme among UPPAbaby car seats – whether you pair it with the base or not (though it’s worth noting that using the car seat with the base grants you access to the maximum number of safety features). Plan to do a little traveling with your car seat? Be aware that the MESA Max base weighs more than the MESA V2 base due to the added safety features. (Both car seats themselves weigh 9.9 pounds.) These additional safety features contribute to the slightly higher cost of the MESA Max compared to the MESA V2.
2. Ultimate Coverage
The UPPAbaby MESA Max has an amazing canopy. It offers a whopping 43% more coverage compared to the previous UPPAbaby MESA infant car seat model and even 20% more than the MESA V2! Wondering how that’s possible? It’s because this incredible upgrade includes an extra canopy panel (for a total of four instead of the previous three). This is fantastic news, especially if you often use the car seat outdoors. With the enhanced coverage, you can keep your little one even more comfortable and protected from sudden rain showers or strong sunshine. It's a game-changer for ensuring your baby's comfort wherever you go.
3. Additional Rebound Bar
The UPPAbaby MESA Max includes an anti-rebound bar both in the base and in the car seat itself. The base features an anti-rebound bar on the front side, while the car seat has a 4-position handle, with the fourth position acting as an additional anti-rebound bar. This design ensures optimal safety, whether you're using the car seat with or without the base.
4. Extra Side Impact Protection
When it comes to side impact protection, the UPPAbaby MESA Max outshines all other MESA car seats. It features a robust headrest insert with larger side wings compared to the standard MESA headrest. This upgraded design provides superior protection against side impacts, ensuring your little one is safe and secure during your travels.
5. Secure Installation
Just like other UPPAbaby car seats, the MESA Max is equipped with a SMARTSecure® System on its base. This system includes helpful red and green indicators that make it incredibly easy to ensure the correct installation of the car seat. The UPPAbaby MESA Max also features a European belt path. This unique design enables a safer installation of the car seat without using the base. Not only does it offer convenience when you're on the go, but it also helps maintain a more upright position for the car seat during a crash.
6. Added Stability
Your baby will experience maximum stability and safety with the UPPAbaby MESA Max, thanks to its steel stabilizing load leg located on the back side of the car seat base. This load leg is not only adjustable but also offers four different positions to accommodate your specific needs. Whether you choose to use the load leg or not, the car seat provides flexibility for your preference. If you decide not to use the load leg, no worries! During installation, you can easily hide it away without any hassle. With the steel stabilizing load leg, you can have peace of mind knowing that your little one is secure and protected during your journeys.
7. Cozy Comfort
With its incredibly soft infant insert, this car seat offers a dream-like ride for your baby. The plush UPPAbaby MESA infant car seat insert is designed for babies weighing 4 to 11 pounds, offering extended use compared to previous models. Its contoured design ensures optimal support for your baby during the ride. Plus, the no-rethread harness is infinitely adjustable, allowing you to customize the perfect fit for your little one. To keep your baby cool and comfortable, especially on hotter days, the car seat features side ventilation that promotes increased airflow. This is especially beneficial when using the car seat in the summertime. Your baby will stay cool and content throughout the journey.
8. Extra Convenience
A quick press of the button on the top of the carrier handle releases it from the frame so you can go from stroller to car in one seamless motion. Additionally, the convenient, reversible option allows your baby to face you while strolling, or you can turn the carrier to pull right up to a table for mealtime.
For the ultimate in portability and safety, the MESA Max directly attaches to both the VISTA and CRUZ strollers. It is even compatible with the MINU and RIDGE with the addition of convenient adapters. This creates a stylish and simple solution that goes from drive to stroll (and back again).
Your baby is sure to enjoy the most comfortable and relaxed car rides using the UPPAbaby MESA Max, where every detail is designed to ensure a delightful experience for your little one. With the UPPAbaby MESA Max, you can trust that every precaution has been taken to prioritize your little one's safety, giving you peace of mind during your journeys.
