**Important safety message: (if you are intending to use the alpha car seat with a universal base). There are 2 versions of the alpha car seat. The newer version has an orange sticker on the hull (see image), that lines up to a corresponding orange sticker on the universal base. Both your universal base & your alpha car seat must have these stickers to be compatible. Likewise, if your universal base does not have this sticker, you must use an alpha car seat that also does not have this sticker. If you're buying your alpha car seat & universal base today, you will get a compatible pair! This message does not apply to ISOfix bases.

When the isofix base is in the back ofmy car with no baby seat installed it rattles ans clangs like a bucket of bolts. I would have thought good design would have included considering the acoustics!
Not worth the money

Really disappointed with this car seat. The straps are difficult to adjust and my daughter hates being in the seat. I think it's the shape of it for her, I.e not flat enough. Overall quality is poor and the last thing you want to do with a new born is have to mess around with the straps!!!! definitely not recommended.
Good and bad points

I really like this capsule because it's narrow and small, fits in my car when a lot of others didn't. It has a 5 point harness and I like the fact that the handle is upright in the car so takes up less space. It's also REALLY lightweight so easy to carry around with baby in it. However, the negatives are that it needs a long seatbelt when installing without the base and may not fit in some cars. Also, it has a really short shell, so although it goes up to 13kg, my 6 month old is almost within 1 inch of the top of the shell at 8kg (he is very tall though) so no way it would last him another 7 kg! I would still recommend as long as you take into about the considering and it was one of the very few that would fit in my very small car.
Light weight and comfy

My girl is 5 months have been using it since birth. So far it has done a good job now its time to look for a booster seat.Have been using it with the the naviator auto stop stroller, love the fact that we didn't have to take her out of it and she is nice and warm inside the capsule. The capsule as such was light weight so it was easy to attach it to the base and to the stroller. Just one negative the harness keeps twisting around at times. Otherwise fab 5 stars.
