Good capsule but gets a bit hot and sometimes sticky seatbelt
The capsule is overall good but a bit hot and a bit of a sticky seatbelt sometimes at the back.
Looks great and feel very confident in the safety of it and it also works perfect as it fits in with our Steelcraft pram which means when bub is sleeping, no need to wake him up to transfer from one to the other.
Excellent - Good Quality
I used this capsule for all 3 of my kids, the quality is good and also the durability. I also bought the Pram and 2 bases for each card, very expensive when you purchase everything individually but ideal as you don’t need to purchase 2 seats for both cars.
Would highly recommend if you have the cash but there are other seats out there for a better price
Convenient. But gets hot.
I found it convenient that it clipped straight from the car to my pram so bubs didn't get woken up each stop.
Bubs was born at 2.3kg and is still in it at 6 months (has about 2cm left) she is starting to get a bit squished in there now.
It was super hard to install, we ended up taking it to the fitter.
It gets super hot in there as its quite confined & the fabric is not moisture wicking.
I also don't like that the sun hood is tiny it stops pretty much zero sun hitting her.
Not sure we will use for our next one.
Cosy and stylish
This Steelcarft Baby Capsule is of good quality and it is very stylish, I like taking my baby in and out of the car and taking him to shops without disturbing much valuable sleep. The Capsule is easy to use and come with good instructions. I would recommend it to a friend.
So cute and cosy
I wanted a capsule instead of a bay seat straight away. I wanted to rent one but after seeing a Steelcraft baby capsule I loved it so much that I had to have it. I like that it is new and reliable. The baby is comfortable and cosy in the capsule and I would recommend it to other mothers looking for a reliable solution to transport their baby.
Good quality and stylish design
I am happy with the purchase of my baby capsule. I wanted something like that for my newborn and was thinking or renting one first. When I saw a Steelcraft Baby Capsule I knew I wanted to buy it straight away. My baby fits there well and is cozy and comfortable. I am happy too.
I love this capsule as well, with my first baby I was not sure what to get, so many products on the market. This capsule is absolutely great. It is easy to carry, it is not very heavy, clips into the pram and the capsule base of the car.
We had it installed into our car at the fitting station for safety reasons. My baby is snug and cozy in the capsule and likes being there and every time I put him there fall asleep straight away.
Great, safe and easy
The Steelcraft Baby Capsule was right for us in many ways. We wanted to be able to take our baby out of the car without waking and we were able to do this easily with the Steelcraft Baby Capsule and we bought the pram that it's compatible with. It was straight forward to install and easy to use. We always felt our baby was very safe and secure. The only negative was there wasn't much padding.
Great capsule, it’s been very convenient. Clips easily into our pram and is compatible with many brands as long as you get adaptors. Means you can get baby in and out of the car really easily which makes wrestling a toddler at the same time much easier. This capsule isn’t as big as some others so bub may only last 4-6 months depending how long they are (it’s not a weight limit)
Have been using this capsule for 5 weeks and love it! It is easy to put bub into, straps loosen so that we do not have to squeeze her arms in and out. Also very easy to tighten the straps back up. Bub looks very comfy in it. It clicks into our steelcraft agile elite pram and i love being able to get bub out of the car and clip the capsule into the pram so easily. Only downside is we found it a little tricky to get a good install the first time. We took it to a fitter and they showed us how to do it properly so now it is easy.
Great price - great product
For this price, this capsule was a great buy. The capsule is easy to install into the car. The capsule isn't as padded as the other more expensive brands but my baby slept in it and never complained. It's not too heavy and easy to carry.
The capsule only goes into steelcraft prams and you also can't get extra bases which is disappointing, however for the price, it's a good capsule.
Capsule is easy to carry however could be a little lighter. It fits into my pram perfectly. Extremely easy in install into the car and doesn't leave any marks on the seats as previous car seats have. Baby fits snug into the seat. I would purchase another if I were to have another baby.
Not bad but not as convenient as you may think.
To start off I'd like to complain about the car installation instructions. Because of this, this item has received so many unfair 1 star reviews. I used this capsule for quite some time by following their instructions and like so many other people it was very unstable when in the car. Eventually I used a child belt clamp/clip and this solved the problem. The only other issue I have is getting it in and out of the car can be quite a task, surely there must be a better way. I find my wife is also unable to loosen the support belt if I have tighte...ned it up and she'll then have to remove our child instead. Other than these issues it is very handy being able to take our child out without waking him and then put him onto the pram. The capsule fits our child in nice and snug and seems easy enough to get him in and out.
Hard to get a tiny baby out of.
It was easy enough to install had the instructions on the side. Fit nicely into my steelcraft pram which was a plus, but it clicked out of the capsule and into the pram with such a loud noise, which was good to know it was in but it had green and red indicators that told you and the noise woke baby up every time. And that was the whole point of the capsule that fits into the pram. Uninterrupted sleep.
The baby was very snug in there but because of the angle of the capsule and the top strap it was hard to get a fragile child up and over the str...
Keeps baby cosy and snug, and SAFE!
I like this baby capsule and I am moving around a lot and wanted something that can go in and out of the car easy. I trust all Steelcraft products, they are made with quality and are priced well. This capsule is also very comfy for my daughter. I would recommend it to first time parents looking for value for money and good quality!
Great seat for bub
One of the most popular infant carriers, fits perfect in my 4wd (may be a little big in length for smaller cars if behind the passenger seat) easy to install, adjustable base, lightweight, breathable material. Compatible with steelcraft prams. Suit up to 6months or more depending on childs size (has height marker) hood to block sun. Was a lifesaver getting bub in and out without having to wake them up
loved this for my daughter, easy to put in and once you found the trick to getting out super easy (hook your arm into handle and pull upwards) easy to click into pram and bub looked super comfy in it. didn't take up too much room in car and was great as we had two cars with a base in each and could just click into whichever we decided to take that day. she last till 8 months in capsule
Still love it after two babies!
Love this capsule. So quick and easy to clip in and out of car quickly and into my compact strider pram. Easy to disassemble to wash lining (very handy for explosions). Using this for my second baby now and it looks brand new still.
Bub sits in very securely and there is a insert that helps keep their head supported when very little.
Also has elastic bits on side that you can tuck the seat belt clips into so it keeps them open and makes it easier to put bub in.

I have a steelcraft solar travel system. Will any steelcraft calsule fit onto the solar pram or does it need to be a solar capsule?
