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

New for 2018

  • DENNY fashion is back
  • Additional Merino wool fashion, JORDAN, which is naturally fire resistant

MESA Safety

  • SMARTSecureTM system: An industry first, 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.
    • 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 whether using LATCH or belt.
    • Auto-retracting LATCH:  Unlike traditional LATCH connectors, MESA’s unique retracting LATCH system tightens effortlessly, minimizing installation error.
  • Advanced Side Impact Protection: MESA’s adjustable headrest is reinforced with EPP foam providing added protection for your child. The integrated design keeps an infant’s head stationary during a side impact collision.
  • Adjustable headrest:  Robust, adjustable headrest that moves as baby grows. EPP foam-constructed wings distributes crash forces, minimizing head trauma and whiplash.
  • Optimized for preemies 4 lbs+
    • Low harness position setting:  MESA’s adjustable harness and 2 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.

    MESA Convenience

      • Merino wool fashion: Through its innovative use of Merino wool, the Henry MESA and new for 2018- Jordan are the FIRST AND ONLY car seats to pass federal safety standards without the use of fire retardant chemicals!
          • No Chemicals: The Henry and Jordan merino wool fabric is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified. OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified provides parents with confidence that the fabric has been tested for harmful substances.
          • Naturally flame-resistant: Merino wool is finer and suppler than regular wool, and its natural flame resistance makes it a powerhouse. When exposed to flame, it resists catching fire, where artificial fibers may melt or burn.
          • So warm yet so cool:  Its wicking properties help keep babies cool on hot days and warm on cool days.
        • Performance travel system:  Directly attaches to UPPAbaby VISTA or CRUZ stroller 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.
        • New performance fabric:  Softer, breathable and moisture-wicking material on the adjustable headrest, harness covers and infant insert keeps baby cool and comfortable.
        • 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.
        • 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.
        • Removable and washable fabric and canopy:  It’s a fact of life -- babies dribble and drool. MESA's seat fabric and canopy fabric is easily removable for cleanup without the need to disassemble the harness.
        • Hideaway canopy with SPF 50+:  The integrated, extendable canopy provides exceptional sun protection and privacy when in use; tucks away completely into the shell when not in use.
        • 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.
        • Finished base bottom:  Smooth, finished base bottom minimizes indents and eliminates the need for a seat protector.
