UPPAbaby MESA Infant Car Seat

Georgie/Marine Blue

MESA. See how simple.

From the very first day, parents are faced with countless decisions about how to keep baby safe. UPPAbaby designed the MESA with intuitive innovations you can see and features that remove the guesswork. The SMARTSecureTM System combines auto-retracting connectors and a visual indicator that turns from red to green, providing an installation that is both simple and accurate. The MESA maximizes ease to minimize error, which allows parents to move forward with confidence and security.

For infants 4-35 lbs and up to 32” in height

  • SMARTSecureTM system:  An industry first, UPPAbaby MESA’s SMARTSecureTM system provides parents with visual confirmation that their seat is installed correctly.
  • Tightness indicator:  It’s as easy as red to green. When the tightness indicator turns green, it provides confirmation that the seat is installed correctly, taking a bit of the guesswork out of parenting.
  • Auto-retracting LATCH:  MESA’s unique retracting LATCH connectors tighten effortlessly, minimizing installation error.
  • Advanced 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.
  • Adjustable headrest:  Robust, adjustable headrest that moves as baby grows. EPP foam-constructed wings distributes crash forces, minimizing head trauma and whiplash.
  • Low harness position setting:  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.
  • Included infant insert:  MESA’s infant insert is ideal when your baby is between 4 and 8 pounds. The insert’s built-in wedge creates a flatter and safer riding position for preemies and small newborns.
  • European-style belt routing path:  When you’re traveling in taxis, rental cars or other people’s cars, MESA’s European-style belt routing path, combined with a lap belt installation, makes installing the carrier without a base safe and secure. When used properly, the European-style belt routing path prevents the carrier from moving off the vehicle seat and rotating.
  • No-Rethread harness:  As your infant grows, the MESA infant car seat adapts. MESA’s unique no-rethread five-point harness is adjustable from the front, allowing for proper fitting in just seconds.
  • New performance fabric:  Softer, breathable and moisture-wicking material on the adjustable headrest, harness covers and infant insert keeps baby cool and comfortable.
  • Hideaway canopy with SPF 50+:  Provides exceptional sun protection and privacy when in use; tucks away completely into the shell when not.
  • Level indicators on both sides of base:  Whether you are installing from the left or right side of the car, level indicators confirm that your seat is properly leveled.
  • Buckle storage pockets:  Small pockets sewn into the side of the seat fabric allow you to tuck the harness buckles into the seat and out of the way for easy loading and unloading of your child. They also keep the buckles cool on hot days.
  • Performance travel system:  Directly attaches to UPPAbaby Vista or Cruz strollers without the need for adapters to create a convenient performance travel system.
    • Expandable options: Whether you’re having twins or this is your second or third time around, the MESA paired with the VISTA can accommodate your growing family.
    • One-handed release from stroller:  A quick press of the button on the top of the carrier handle releases it from the stroller. Go from stroller to car in one motion.
    • Reversible on stroller:  Infant can face you while strolling, or right up to a table without a handle in the way.
  • Finished base bottom:  Smooth, finished base bottom prevents indentation and damage to the seats of your car.
  • Removable and washable fabric and canopy:  It’s a fact of life -- babies dribble and drool. MESA’s seat fabric can be quickly and easily removed for washing. Better yet, it’s just as easy to put back on.
