The Skinny

The UPPAbaby Mesa is the 2nd highest scoring seat in our car seat review, outperforming all but one of the other 14 car seats in this review. The Mesa won our Top Pick for Travel and Urban Dwellers award, owing to strong performance in key feature areas that matter for urban parents such as use in a taxi cab without the base. We love the retractable LATCH anchors on the Mesa, which make it one of the easiest to install seats using LATCH anchors, and the easy-to-use height adjustment. We think this seat has much to rave about and offers features not found on other seats that make it both easier to use and a stand out in the group. This seat sports high installation scores with a perfect 10 for ease of install without the base, making it great for those urban dwellers who frequent taxis or Uber.

Update — 2017
UPPAbaby has a new update of the Mesa which should be available in Spring 2017. The new Mesa is claiming to be the first flame retardant-free infant car seat in the industry, using naturally flame resistant wool in place of the usual chemicals. Wool has the added benefit of being a wicking fiber, making it comfortable in both warm and cool weather. The new fabric will only be available in the color Henry (blue marl), but other new colors will be available as well. If the Mesa seems like the seat for you, and the timing works, you might consider delaying your purchase for the chemical free option.

The Mesa is an infant seat that handles babies from 4-35 pounds and up to 32 inches tall. It has been designed to accommodate preemies that are 4 pounds with a low harness position setting and an infant insert that creates a safer riding position. It features an adjustable headrest which UPPAbaby claims offers side impact protection that is reinforced with EPS foam. The headrest is adjustable from the front and is designed to provide additional protection against head trauma. It is made with EPS foam wings which UPPAbaby claims will distribute crash force and minimize side-to-side movement or contact with car parts. This car seat can be used without the base for easier traveling on in taxi cabs. The Mesa features side pockets for harness buckle storage or keeping buckles cool. The fabric is removable and washable. It also has a hideaway 50 SPF+ canopy and a unique 5 point harness that allows the shoulder height to be easily adjusted from the front for a quick proper fit. The Mesa has limited stroller compatibility, but is compatible with the UPPABaby Vista or Cruz strollers.

Performance Comparison


The chart below shows a comparison of all the infant car seats tested in this review. The UPPAbaby Mesa is shown in blue.


Below you will find detailed information on how the Mesa performed in each metric during testing. Individual metric scores were used to determine overall scores.

Crash Test


We analyzed crash test data from two sources: data from our own crash tests which were commissioned at the same national testing facility used by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and data from tests conducted by NHTSA at that same facility.


These tests are designed to measure the G forces of crash impact on the chest and head region of the crash dummy. We were interested in learning the relative differences between car seats, and identify those seats that go beyond the Federal guidelines to offer an added margin of protection.

The chart above shows the Mesa head force sensor data in black, and the seat with the best head force results, the Chicco Keyfit 30 in green. The UPPAbaby performed well in the head impact scores, with results that were better than average, and well below the Federal safety requirements.

This chart shows the comparison between the head G force results for the UPPAbaby Mesa vs the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40, the best crash test chest sensor results
The UPPAbaby earned what we consider to be a basic score for chest crash test results, which are shown above with the Mesa in black, and the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 in green which had the best results from chest force sensors. Earning a basic score indicates it exceeds the Federal guidelines, but does not seem to offer as significant an additional margin of safety as other seats with better crash test results in the chest sensor area.

The Mesa offers Side Impact Protection (SIP) head padding
The Mesa offers Side Impact Protection (SIP) head padding
The Mesa makes the additional claim of side impact protection (SIP) and padding in the head area of the seat. They do make the claim that this SIP feature has been tested, but we were unable to obtain disclosure of actual crash test results from UPPAbaby that would quantify what level of additional protection, if any, their claimed SIP support provides. In answer to our request for crash test information, UPPAbaby's representative told us, "we don't provide this information you will find that no other manufacturer will do the same" (in fact, we did find other manufacturers were more forthcoming and transparent with their test findings than UPPAbaby, and let the company know their assertion in this regard was incorrect). Given that we don't have any crash test data for their claimed SIP feature, we cannot remark on whether or not it improves the safety of the seat. However, we do like any extra effort to increase car seat safety and feel that UPPAbaby does appear to be attempting to build a better seat.

Ease of Install - LATCH




Installing the

UPPAbaby is a breeze and one of the easiest in the group. It earned a 9 of 10 for ease of install using the LATCH system tying with the Cybex Aton 2 and the Chicco Keyfit 30.


All of these seats offered some kind of unique LATCH feature that made installation easy and relatively foolproof. The lowest score in the group is a 3 earned by the Graco SnugRide Classic Connect.

The self-ratcheting LATCH system on the Mesa is easy to use and makes tightening the straps a breeze

The Mesa has self-ratcheting LATCH connectors that stay tucked into the base when not in use. You release them with a touch of a button on top and pull them out either one at a time or simultaneously. We found one at a time is easier for attaching to the LATCH lower U anchors on the vehicle, but practice probably makes any method easy enough. The connectors are the type we prefer that have a hard shelled buckle which clicks-in more like a seatbelt than a simple clip. To use them you simply push the connector onto the anchor. There is an audible click when it connects. The connectors also have a red button that will release it from the anchor point on the car in a way we think is easier than the clip release.

Once the base is in place and the anchors are attached, adding pressure to the base causes the anchor straps to ratchet and tighten on their own. There is a visual indicator that gives the green light when you have a tight and secure fit, all you need to do is keep applying pressure until the indicator changes to green. We caution that the indicator seemed a little finicky in our tests and occasionally would register green, but then move to red after a bumpy ride, so consider it a helpful guide, not the definitive word.

The base also has an adjustable foot that can assist in obtaining a level installation. There is a level indicator on the base that tells you when the base is installed at the right angle with a window that shows green for good and red for bad. This is an easy feature to use and adds to the ease of install and helps make it difficult to get wrong.

Ease of Install - Belt


Installation with a vehicle belt isn't too bad on the Mesa  but it can be hard to fold over
Installation with a vehicle belt isn't too bad on the Mesa, but it can be hard to fold over
The Mesa earned a respectable 7 of 10 for installation using a belt; it tied with the Cybex and the Graco Click Connect 40.


The high score for this metric is a 9 shared by Phil and Teds Alpha and the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35. The low score is a 4 earned by the Evenflo Embrace LX.

The Mesa has a belt lock off that is easy to use and a color coded belt path. Overall the seat is relatively easy to install with this method. Threading of the vehicle belt only takes a moment and is harder if the shoulder strap is involved because it requires 2 layers be included in the belt lock off. However, this isn't overly hard and it earned a better score for ease of install than most. We did have a problem with the "button" on the seat belt getting in the way of the lock off so it wouldn't or couldn't close. We had to cinch down rather tight on the belt to get the indicator light to turn green (the one that tells you it's tight enough). The seat would have scored higher if we hadn't experienced the button issue. However the inclusion of a belt lock off makes the entire process easier and more stable than seats that don't offer one.

Ease of Install - Without the Base


The Mesa uses the so-called "American belt path" method over the lower portion of the carrier. This is super easy to do and helped it earn a Top Pick award in our review.
The Mesa uses the so-called "American belt path" method over the lower portion of the carrier. This is super easy to do and helped it earn a Top Pick award in our review.
Installing the Mesa without the base is easy and scored an 10 of 10 putting it in first place for the metric tying with the Peg Perego.


The low is a 4 shared by Orbit Baby G3 and the Chicco. This is a crucial feature if you expect to take your infant in taxi cabs or services like Uber where you will want to be able to quickly and safely secure the seat using the taxi seat belt.

The photos above show the American belt path of the Mesa (left) vs the European belt path of the older 2014 Mesa (right). We think the European method feels more secure and are sorry they eliminated this feature on the newer seats.

When UPPAbaby revised the Mesa design a few years ago, they changed the belt path used to secure the seat without the base. The Mesa design now uses the American belt path, which is both good news and bad news from our point of view. In the previous 2014 Mesa, UPPAbaby used what is called the European belt path, and offered an easy to use implementation of the European belt path. We like the European path better than the American because it feels more secure and stable when installed properly, and the security of the seat installation is our top concern. However, the American path has the advantage of being easier to accomplish, a key feature for a new parent in a rush to secure the baby in the back of a taxi cab, and the improved ease-of-use helped earn the newer Mesa a higher score overall. The color coded path way helps parents remember where to thread the belt and how it should be connected. The belt extends across the lower foot portion of the carrier and is easy to thread in the clips located on the side and out of the reach of baby or padding. This seat feels very stable once installed. It does not require any towels or pool noodles to install properly.

Ease of Use




The Mesa earned a 7 of 10 for ease of use coming in 1 point lower than the highest scoring product in the metric.


The Recaro and the Evenflo both earned an 8. The low score is a 3 shared by the Orbit Baby G3, Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40, and the Graco SnugRide Classic Connect.

The buckle and chest clip on the Mesa are easy to use compared to much of the competition
The buckle and chest clip on the Mesa are easy to use compared to much of the competition

The buckle on the Mesa scored just 2 points lower than the highest in our tests for ease of use. The buckle is stiff, but not hard to operate like some of the other products we tested and probably needs to be at least this tiff to fall within the guidelines for safety testing. The chest/retainer clip is one of the easiest for connecting and disconnecting. The button is easy to depress and the sides slide apart without stiffness or getting hung up. The two sides also mate up easily and slide together smoothly with little force. Most of the chest clips in this review were annoyingly stiff to use making the UPPAbaby stand out in the crowd.

The harness release button on the Mesa is on the top of the padding and easy to access

Loosening and tightening the harness on the UPPAbaby are both about average. It is somewhat easier to loosen than it is to tighten but both are readily manageable. The tightening strap is the standard strap located at the foot of the carrier. Pulling the strap will tighten the harness. The release button is also located at the foot of the carrier and is on top of the padding as opposed to under it. This makes it easy to access, but available for baby to kick with their feet.

The harness height adjustment on the Mesa can be done from the front with baby in the seat. It does not require any rethreading of the harness straps
The harness height adjustment on the Mesa can be done from the front with baby in the seat. It does not require any rethreading of the harness straps
The Mesa has an easy way to adjust the harness shoulder height in any of 5 positions without the need to rethread the harness straps. The release strap for the latch to disengage the assembly is a little awkwardly placed at the head of the seat, but it is easy to use and the height assembly moves smoothly and easily. The assembly has 5 height positions to ensure a good fit for baby, and best of all it can be adjusted from the front with the baby in the seat. It also has 2 crotch strap positions which will help parents get the best fit for babies of any size. We like this height adjustment method because we believe parents will be more likely to keep baby in a proper fitting harness if it can be adjusted on the fly.

The Mesa carrier is easy to install and sort of falls into place without having to jostle it around to find just the right footing for connection. It offers no visual indicator to tell you if its on correctly, but we tested it multiple times and never had a problem getting it latched on properly. There is a release handle located on the back of the carrier that when squeezed will

disengage the carrier/base connection and allow you to lift the carrier up and off the base. The release handle is easy to use and works well.

The carry handle on this seat is nice and feels good in the hand. It does rub on the canopy somewhat when both are out, but it isn't as bad as the Graco products and it doesn't happen all the time. The handle moves smoothly when you depress the levers on both side and pivot to the desired position. It has 3 positions and any are acceptable when driving.

The Mesa offers little stow pockets for the harness latch plates to keep them out of the way when putting baby in the seat or prevent them from getting too hot in the sun
The Mesa offers little stow pockets for the harness latch plates to keep them out of the way when putting baby in the seat or prevent them from getting too hot in the sun
The seat sides have a stow pocket for the latch plates of the buckle. You can easily pull each side off to the side and tuck the latch plate into a little pocket designed to hold them open so you can place baby in the seat without needing to adjust baby to get the straps loose after the fact. It is a nice convenience, but we aren't sure parents will mess with it regularly. It is more of a time waster than a benefit we think. So while it is nice to have and easy to use, we doubt it will get used regularly.

The Mesa earned the top score for LATCH storage with retractable anchors that tuck into their own pockets and must be released by pressing a button. This means there is no way they can get in the way of placing the carrier onto the base properly or inhibiting a connection. We really liked just about everything about the LATCH connectors on this unique base.

Comfort/Quality


The fabric on the Mesa is high quality  soft  and comfortable
The Mesa 2014 (seen here) had really unfriendly fabric that felt like fine grit sand paper used for wet sanding cars prior to painting. The product was updated in 2015 to much nicer fabric
 
The photos above show the Mesa (left) and the old 2014 Mesa (right). The Mesa now has much softer fabric in the head area and the insert, and we preferred it hands down to the old models rougher fabric.


The Mesa earned a 6 of 10 for comfort and quality, earning a slightly better score than the 2014 model thanks to the nicer fabric in the head region of the seat. The high score for this group is an 8 earned by Phil and Teds Alpha and the Peg Perego. The Graco SnugRide Classic Connect earned the low here once again with a 2.

There is no question that the UPPAbaby is a quality car seat made with nice materials. Not only does everything on this seat feel really durable and solid, but it is brought together in a way that offers a very nice fit and finish. With all 15 seats lined up side-by-side it is a stand out in the group and one most testers were drawn to or marked as a favorite for appearance and quality. It earned a second to the highest score for its overall fit and finish with a sleek, clean design and execution.

The seat offers really nice padding and better fabric in the head area than the 2014 model offered (though they both have fairly rough fabric in the bottom and leg regions that feels to us like really fine grit sandpaper). We feel like the fabric is going to be very durable and easy to clean, perhaps lasting through more than one baby, and we are glad they changed the fabric in the head area and insert to something more skin friendly given how thin baby's skin can be, but it still kind of stinks that the leg region isn't as friendly. However, as one tester pointed out, babies crawl on the floor with bare legs often over rough surfaces that chaff and scratch. However, overall we still think baby should be comfortable in their car seat, not chaffing while sitting still, and we hope UPPAbaby continues to make improvements to the seat including soft fabric overall.

The handle for the Mesa earned an above average score in our side-by-side review. It is simple and easy to use, but appears to be only average in durability. We didn't find any rough edges on it and it is easy to grip and carry. The handle is also of adequate height to avoid any canopy handle collision or rubbing problems we saw in other seats like all the Graco options.

The canopy on the Mesa is one of the best looking in the group and it hides away when not in use for a sleek overall look
The canopy on the Mesa is one of the best looking in the group and it hides away when not in use for a sleek overall look
The canopy is a medium size that has a nice hard storage flap that keeps it out of the way when not in use and is unique in the group. We liked the slick look of the seat without the canopy and thought it was a nice touch for keeping unused accessories out of the way. This means baby won't be able to play with the canopy when it is not in use. The canopy rated higher than average for durability and remains taunt easily. It is only medium in size, which is a bummer, but given that it has no peek-a-boo window it is probably for the best. UPPAbaby does offer a pretty snazzy seat cover accessory called the Cabana for an additional fee that covers the whole seat and works in layers to keep out sun, wind, rain, bugs, and strangers.

Weight


While lighter than the previous version of the Mesa this eat is still on the heavy side at 10.25 pounds
While lighter than the previous version of the Mesa this eat is still on the heavy side at 10.25 pounds
This seat is a fairly heavy seat with a carrier weight of 10.25 pounds. However, it is an improvement over the 2014 model that weighed in over 12 pounds. Unfortunately, it is still above average and we wish it were closer to 9 pounds. The Orbit Baby G3 is the heaviest in the group at 12.5 pounds. The lightest product in the group is the Graco SnugRide Classic Connect at 7.06.


We were disappointed in the overall carrier weight of the Mesa, even though it shaved off about 2 pounds from its previous incarnation in 2014. Given how well it did in almost every other metric and test it seems a shame that its overall score is impacted because it is still relatively heavy compared to several others in the group. In addition, their company website states the carrier weighs under 10 pounds, and while it only weighs .25 pounds over 10 it is still a discrepancy from our measurements that we think is misleading to customers.

While we argue that weight should never be a number one deciding factor, we do think it should hold some "weight" (pun intended) in the decision making process. Given that the average weight for the group is 9.4 pounds, there are other seat options that simply weigh less. We hope UPPAbaby will continue to find ways of trimming down this seat in the future so it can be a more manageable seat to lug about. Even just 1 more pound could make it more of a contender in the metric and earn it more points overall.

Stroller Compatibility


Choosing the Mesa for a car seat makes the choice of stroller almost a no-brainer. In our review of the best baby strollers both UPPAbaby strollers we tested won awards and proved to be very nice, user friendly options that work best with the Mesa. The UPPAbaby Cruz earned an Editors' Choice award and has a high ease of use score and nice maneuverability. The UPPAbaby Vista earned a Top Pick for versatility with a frame that can work with 2 Mesa car seats, or multiple combinations of toddler, infant seats, and third child ride ons. Both strollers offer large storage bins with 25 and 30 pound weight capacities respectively. In addition, all the Baby Jogger strollers are compatible with the Mesa including the Best Value winner, the Baby Jogger City Mini Single. You will need to purchase an adapter for these strollers, but their lower cost even with the adapter purchase will still be less than the UPPAbaby options.

Best Applications


This truly is an innovative nicely designed seat, and we feel it's perfect score for installation makes it a good pick for parents who frequent public transport. UPPAbaby managed to do a great job of improving a seat we already sort of liked, with a lighter carrier weight and softer fabric in the head region, but it's the ease of install that makes it a top pick for travelers and urban dwellers. UPPAbaby also did well in some of our stroller reviews, so you also plan on combining the seat with a compatible UPPAbaby stroller, for even nicer travel options. UPPAbaby walked away with an Editors' Choice award for the UPPAbaby Vista in our review of standard size strollers, which compatible with this seat.

Value


The list price of $300 for this UPPAbaby seat makes it one of the highest in the group. While it is a highly ranked car seat, we can't truly say that it is a good value given that the higher scoring Peg Perego has the same price tag. The Chicco Keyfit 30 scored 1 point lower than the Mesa, but has a list price close to $100 less, making it potentially a better value overall. The Chicco is also lighter and has somewhat friendlier fabric and good scores overall. In addition, the Safety 1st onBoard 35 Air earned 4 points less overall, has an additional margin of safety with a better than basic crash test score, and is almost half the price of the UPPAbaby. The 2014 model was $20 cheaper and we think that is probably a better price for this product.

Conclusion


The UPPAbaby Mesa comes with a positional insert for smaller babies
The UPPAbaby Mesa comes with a positional insert for smaller babies
It is hard to love a product this much and at the same time ignore its obvious flaws. This seat has a unique easy to use LATCH system that has self-ratcheting straps that make installation a breeze. It offers an easy-to-use non-rethreading height adjustment feature that allows you to make adjustments easily with baby in the seat. It sports extra head protection and potential side impact protection with a larger head cradle, and the padding is soft and the seat looks cool. Whether it is the great ease of use score or the perfect installation without the base score, it is hard not to be intrigued by this UPPAbaby offering.

Unfortunately, the seat is somewhat heavy compared to most seats we tested, and while lighter than the 2014 model, it still well over the average. In addition, the remaining rough fabric on the bottom portion of the seat is a bad design choice for a high-end $300 seat in our opinion. The fabric on the similarly priced Peg Perergo sets the standard for us on the level of comfort and quality a high-end seat should offer. And, even lower priced products, like the Phil and Teds Alpha offers much nicer fabric than the Mesa even though the Alpha sells for $100 higher price.

For parents in an urban environment though, the UPPAbaby Mesa is a compelling package, with uniquely easy support for installation in a taxi using just the seat belt, quality stroller options in the form of the UPPAbaby Vista and UPPAbaby Cruz, both of which are well suited for use by urbanites. For these reasons, along with above average scores in almost every test, the Mesa earned our Top Pick for Travelers and Urban dwellers.

Other Versions and Accessories


The Cabana
The Cabana
UPPAbaby only makes one infant style car seat, the Mesa. It does however offer 2 different accessory shields for keeping the elements out. These include a UPPAbaby Rain Sheild and something they call a Cabana that looks like a full seat sunshade cover for protection from sun, wind, rain, insects, and curious looky loos. It is actually one of the coolest covers for a seat we have seen.

The UPPAbaby Mesa works perfectly with the UPPAbaby Vista and UPPAbaby Cruz strollers. Parents can also consider using a baby carrier for baby transport instead of a stroller. This practice of baby wearing can encourage bonding with baby and save parents money over a stroller purchase. Many can also be used hands free, giving parents the freedom to use both hands while moving baby from place to place.
The Cozy Greens back seat mirror
The Cozy Greens back seat mirror
Another helpful accessory is the Back Seat Mirror from Cozy Greens. This mirror is great for any parent wanting to keep an eye on baby from the front seat. The mirror is held out a few inches from a flat base that fits against the front of the headrest. The base is kept secure by two adjustable straps that fit around the headrest horizontally and vertically. A convex shatter proof surface and a pivot point at the base together provide a wide field of view. Once the mirror has been correctly adjusted, pivot point can be tightened so that the mirror can't be accidentally bumped out of position. One downfall of this mirror is that the headrest must be adjustable in order for it to attach properly. Other than that, Amazon users seem to love this mirror claiming that it provides a much clearer reflection than many others.

 How to Choose the Best Infant Car Seat
