Too small

published

Says it is suitable for approx birth-12months. How could any 12 month old baby fit in this capsule? My son outgrew it by 4 months old! (He is a larger baby- maybe about the size of an average 6 month old) but still, 4 months. Totally not worth the money

Its ok not the best

published

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.

Solid but cumbersome and heavy

published

I bought this capsule in 2013 mainly because of it's compatability with the Mountain Buggy Swift. While I appreciated the convenience of this capsule with my first baby - I always felt it was really heavy and the capsule release latch would sometimes be sticky when removing from the base. It's a sturdy unit. However with my second baby I've found these issues to be even more an issue since the need to carry the capsule with a toddler in tow has proven to be extremely hard work. I also find that the infant insert is almost pointless as its barely a head support and with out it there is little padding for the infants back and bottom. I've since tested other capsules that are much lighter, more slim line and feel more comfortable to carry.

I have a long baby too and he is out of it at 7 months. His shoulders reach the marker so it is time to move. Did your baby's shoulders not reach the height marker until 12 months?

Note on compatiblity for city elite with new unity capsule

published

Just found out that the new 2012 unity - is different to the old in that it doesn't have the capsule adaptor at the back of the capsule- its now blocked off. So some pram/stroller companies don't have the adaptor to suit the new one just yet, we have the city elite from baby jogger and they don't have the adaptor in stock and avail until end of 2012- not much use to us now

Capsules are really handy for newborns in that you can avoid taking out the pram and keep the little one asleep after a car ride. This capsule is quite expensive though, so hiring is usually a better option when it can only be used for 8-12 months usually. The main thing I'd say is to be careful to get the base securely fitted to the car and sitting flat so the capsule isn't too upright.
12kg weight limit (compared to 9kg for many other capsules and some car seats), slimline compared to SNS old style capsule. Compatible with prams.
Moving carry handle position is awkward. Quite heavy. Fitting the base into the car isn't the easiest, and it isn't as secure and stable as other capsules

I bought it with a travel system, and I think without a travel system I would have used it much much less due to its weight. I wasn't completely sold on the matching Steelcraft stroller, but there are now a number of different brands that have car seat attachments to take the Unity, so I was able to buy another stroller I preferred.
Great for transferring sleeping baby. Also great as a rocker. Good sun canopy. Comfy looking padded insert for newborn baby. You can also get a second car seat base, which would have been very handy but I didn't find this out until too late!
Heavy and awkward to carry by itself.

Might make more sense to by this one if you have the matching stroller, if not I would research something lighter.
Safe and secure, comfortable for baby
Extremely heavy especially with the baby inside! Very awkward to remove out of the car (the button is hard to press at the angle you need to!). You most certainly would not be carrying it very far.

The unity is a great car restraint that allows babies to be rearward facing up till 12 kilos. With lighter babies the ability to remove the capsule from the car is great but as the baby grows the unit is too heavy to carry.
Baby can stay in rearward facing position till 12 kilos. The seat is really comfortably padded and the harness is adjusted very easily. The hood helps to sheild the baby from the sun and toys can be hung from the handle to amuse the babu while in the car.
The unit is a bit heavy to take in and out so I generally leave it in the car. The fabric stains very easily, even from dribble it gets water marks so it needs to be washed a lot.

Hi Jessica, thanks for your question the Steelcraft Accent stroller doesn't require adaptors however you will need to remove the adaptors from your Britax Safe-n-Sound Unity capsule to allow it to fit correct.
