Suitable from 0-12 months
Compatible with many strollers & airlines
Can be heavy
Poor head support
My newborn’s head flops around dangerously. Its installed correctly but we now have to reinstall it with towels to try get the seat to tilt back further. I’ve never had this issue with other branded capsules so very disappointed.
The buckles dig in to his little legs and the sun canopy is useless.
Safety and reliability are the first choice.
The brand has always had its own choice, this brand is recommended by others, focusing on child safety seats, safe and reliable is the first choice. Exquisite workmanship, the little baby at home is very fond of sitting. Tilt adjustment is also very convenient. The baby is sitting up and not crying, it’s much easier to go out now.

The perfect capsule if you don’t plan on moving the base
I was thinking of getting to black version with ISO technology and also it has the bamboo fabric which is super soft but was told by the sales assistant that I wouldn’t need it since the ISO is good if you plan to move the car seat which we don’t. It’s super easy to get baby in and out, and it’s very sturdy!

Very easy to connect with pram
I bought this so I could use it as a travel system on my Steelcraft Agile Elite pram (dark chambray). Very convenient to click in and out of the pram but now the hood on the pram does not cover over the capsule leaving the baby's head facing and exposed to the elements. I am now looking for a brand new pram so the hood covers the capsule and matches it. I had to buy a new capsule as the travel system adapters did not actually fit with the pram it came with.

The perfect capsule travel system
Before Bub was born while shopping for a pram we were looking for a travel system option where it can be used until baby is one year. Most of the capsule were looking at were upto 6 months and we wanted something to use for a little bit longer. The lady at our local baby bunting suggested unity neo which is a travel system compatible with any Britax series. We had decided to go for a steelcraft strider compact pram and bought a pair of connectors/receivers. Easy to carry lightweight capsule and matches perfectly with our Dark chambray steelcraf...t pram. The sit has been professionally installed by the people at baby bunting for $45. Our Bub was born a little early and so we were anxious to carry him in the capsule which looked quite big for a small Bub. However it was perfect for small babies with their newborn insert. Bub did fit perfectly from day 1 and still does at 10 months. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a travel system, go for the unity neo especially if your Bub is going to be on the smaller side or you want a capsule sit with a rear facing option until Bub is around one year.
Excellent, highly recommend. Worth the money
I decided to purchase the Unity for my 2nd baby as my first was larger and only lasted 3 months before he was too big, so I wanted a capsule that would last. Easy to install and take out, I purchased the attachments for my pram and his made it easier with everyday tasks. Easy to carry and my daughter was nice and comfy. We are still using it today (as a car seat) and she is almost 9 months old and still plenty of room until the height marker. I have definitely got my monies worth out of it.
So easy and what a great idea! Its not bulky or heavy and goes straight on to the pram! I gad no idea any such thing existed!
It is easy to maneuver and easy to wash and wipe down. Never had any issues with it at all! Highly recommended. Glad we did our research and came accross this!
This has been amazing!
My baby and family has loved this from birth and still using at 9 months. She has her best sleeps in it when she falls asleep in the car and then Cary her inside! Easy to put in and pull out, easy enough to just have one base between my car and dads, we haven’t even needed to buy a second base.
I bought this capsule in a rush in the "End of Financial Year Sale" at Babybunting. I didn't visit the store looking to buy anything, just browse, and didn't realise that the sale was on. We were unprepared and panic bought without any research.
In all honesty i have nothing to compare my experience to. What i can say is that it's well padded and looks and feels like a quality product. My son looks extremely comfortable and cosy sat in it. I can click the capsule in an out easily. It needs to be reinforced with seat belts which is fiddelly b...ut i think all capsules work the same. We had it installed by the baby bunting sub-contractors. We can take him and and out of the car without waking him, but he is a very good sleeper anyway. If anything i think the question for most parents is... should i bother buying a capsule? Bear in mind that i think this capsule is 4kg. At 3.5 months my son is 6kg... thats 10kgs to lift and out of the car at the moment and getting heavier. And this product is designed for unto 12 months. NO WAAAY. Once it gets too heavy we'll just be using it like a car seat. Its a reputable brand and is compatible with many prams we checked out. In hindsight i would have bought a secondhand one, but i would be happy if the second hand one was this one!
As good as advertised
We've had the capsule since our youngest was born. She is still in it at 6 months, now. The easy of use in getting the capsule from the car and onto the pram is fantastic, it really works as well as we had hoped it would. Our girl loves being in there too, she often falls asleep in it. When we get home, we just bring it inside and she stays asleep. Perfect.
Bought at Baby Bunting and they installed it for us. Also a bonus of using the capsule is that is cheap to have in both cars, because you just need two bases. Baby Bunting sold us an ex-rental base for our second car for only about $60

Its ok not the best
Not that easy as often i have fix the hood. It is compatible with my car and pram with an adapter. Not so easy to install and leaving untidy belt. My baby did fit securely but didnt look comfy particularly after the hip braces fitted on. Overall it is ok but wishes that i purchase another product that has practicl hood and rain cover attached.

Good Capsule Overall
I have this capsule and like that it is compatible with a lot of pram models. I found that it is quite bulky and takes up a lot of space length ways (encroaches somewhat on the seat in front) but if you have a larger car it isn’t an issue.
It is quite heavy once the baby grows bigger and so I wouldn’t recommend attempting to use it up until the recommended weight unless you are super fit and strong as it can hurt your back sometimes.
Great for a taller baby
We weren't originally going to get a capsule car seat, but in the end decided it would be handy for not disturbing a sleeping baby after car trips. It turns out our baby was initially one that hated car trips! So she never fell asleep in it! However after she turned 4 months old she finally started to sleep and it has paid off! Luckily we went for this capsule because it is the only one that went up to 12months, and as our baby is quite tall she would have grown out of the regular 6 month size seat just as it became so useful. It is easy to carry and we got the adapters to fit it with the steelcraft agile plus pram and that's very easy to click it in and out.

Very good product, can use up to 12 months
This product appears very good to me and worth for the money and was easy to plug and unplug to the base fitted in car. The another advantage is is it can be used upto 12 months where most other capsules are only for 6 months.
The draw backs might be an additional belt we need to tie around the carrier and also this is slightly heavy though I agree that it is strong body and heaviness is good for babies while travelling.)
Nice but not a necessity
We hired the capsule (April 2013 model) for 1st bub and personally didn’t think the capsule was necessary for us.
- handy when bub is sleeping
- easier for my hubby to get her in and out of seat as he is very tall it’s harder for him to get her in when the capsule is already in the car
- easy to get in and out of car
- no attachment for my pram (reds baby jive)
- I don’t like the material, it’s a velvet fabric so gets really hot. Not ideal when we are going into summer. In looking at newer models I think they have changed the fabric to something lighter? ...

Which adapter do I need for it to fit the steelcraft accent stroller? I've watched videos of it being attached without adapters but when I try it's very unstable
