The 2018 UPPAbaby Mesa Car Seat is an award-winning infant car seat designed with UPPAbaby’s unique and clever car seat installation technology. The Mesa car seat is based on its predecessor 2017 model when UPPAbaby introduced an infant car seat with fabric is that is naturally fire retardant – a first in the U.S. for any car seat manufacturer! Needless to say, customers loved it and demanded more. This year, UPPAbaby brings us two fabric options in the Mesa seat that are naturally fire retardant, in soft yet stylish hues called Jordan and Henry, for a total of five classy options to choose from.
2018 Mesa Style Options:
- JORDAN – charcoal mélange, naturally fire retardant $349.99
- HENRY – blue marl, naturally fire retardant $349.99
- DENNY – red $299.99
- JAKE – black $299.99
- TAYLOR – indigo $299.99
Features of the 2018 UPPAbaby Mesa car seat:
For use from 4 to 35 lbs and up to 32”. With your Mesa car seat, you will receive the Mesa infant insert, which is recommended for use for the initial 4 to 8 lbs. As Baby grows, the infant insert is easily removable, and the Mesa can be used for up to 35 lbs. and 32” in height, whichever comes first.
Installation. The UPPAbaby Mesa infant car seat is built with UPPAbaby’s SMARTSecure System that cleverly combines visual red/green indicators and auto-retracting LATCH connectors to minimize errors during car seat installation. It is because of this smart design that the Mesa has received the highest government ratings for ease of use, earning an NHSTA 5-star rating (in addition to continuing to receive rave reviews from a large and growing customer base.)
New Performance Fabric. Made with breathable and sweat-wicking materials that are soft to the touch, the Mesa car seat is a great car seat for summer months and higher temperatures. We’d be remiss to not mention that the Mesa car seat in the Henry style became an overnight sensation in early 2017 as UPPAbaby’s – and the world’s – first car seat made with fabric that is fire retardant chemical free. Read more on this enhancement below.
No Rethread Harness. Mesa’s unique no-rethread harness design enables parents to seamlessly adjust harness as Baby grows.
Adjustable Headrest with Side Impact Protection (SIP). Easily adjust the car seat’s headrest as Baby grows in height. Additionally, the integrated design of the Mesa’s headrest helps to keep Baby’s head stationary during a side impact collision, with resulting test scores showing 4 times more effective results over competing brands.
Performance Travel System – Adapters Not Required. The 2018 UPPAbaby Mesa Car Seat is the perfect pairing with your choice of the UPPAbaby Vista or Cruz stroller – no adapters required! With the Mesa car seat, your UPPAbaby Vista or Cruz stroller turns into a complete from-birth performance travel system, allowing you to comfortably travel with Baby in the car seat, ultimately transitioning into traditional stroller mode thereafter. With the modular design of UPPAbaby’s Vista and Cruz strollers, the Mesa car seat creates a true all-in-one travel system that grows with the family.
One-Handed Stroller Release. The Mesa car seat is designed with a one-handed stroller release, enabling you to safely remove the car seat from the stroller and place it into the car with one hand, while juggling a diaper bag or baby’s bottle, or even a much-needed latte, in the other.
Double Modularity. As part of the larger UPPAbaby collection, the Mesa infant car seat is part of a well-designed and highly modular system. The Mesa can be doubled with the Vista stroller for a double stroller in multiple combinations – two car seats, a car seat and bassinet, a car seat and toddler seat, and a lot more.
Our take on this year’s enhancements:
This year’s Mesa car seat collection includes a total of five styles, with Jordan making its first-year debut in a stylish charcoal mélange ensemble. There is much more to this car seat than its classy good looks, however. Jordan is made of fabric that is 100% wool and naturally a fire retardant, as is the Mesa in Henry. As wool is a natural fire retardant, UPPAbaby has found an ingenious way to bring us a car seat that meets both quality-conscious parental standards, and legal fire repellant requirements. As the first manufacturer to make this type of a major improvement, UPPAbaby continues to amaze us with highly modular, highly functional and innovative baby gear.
