The popular UPPAbaby VISTA and VISTA V2 strollers are compatible with a number of infant car seats from both UPPAbaby and other brands to create a convenient travel system.

The UPPAbaby MESA car seat attaches directly to the VISTA without the use of an adapter and can be removed easily by pressing a button on the top of the car seat handle.

The UPPAbaby VISTA is also compatible with car seats from brands like Nuna, Cybex, Maxi-Cosi, Clek, Peg-Perego and Chicco using an adapter.

Some parents choose a different manufacturer's car seat for reasons of safety, budget, style or the seat's compatibility with other types of strollers. With a few exceptions, the MESA works only with UPPAbaby strollers.

Using another brand's infant car seat with the UPPAbaby VISTA requires a car seat adapter. Adapters aren't necessarily more difficult to use and can fold with the stroller, but you will have to purchase one for $40-$50 and be sure to have it with you whenever you're using the car seat on the stroller.

UPPAbaby has discontinued 2014-earlier car seat adapters for other car seat models, so these adapters can likely be found only on the used market.

Which Adapters Do I Need for the UPPAbaby VISTA Double Stroller?
