Carrycot

Suitable for use from birth to 9kg, the UPPAbaby Vista 2018 Carrycot is now longer than before and provides a well-ventilated yet warm and cosy place for your little one to take a snooze in. The perforated base and aerated mattress encourage air to flow through the carrycot, for a perfect, cool snooze.

Sun Canopy

Both the carrycot and seat unit have large extendable sun canopies with pop-out panels. These provide your little one with maximum UPF 50+ protection. At the back of the carrycot sun canopy you’ll find a panel that can be unzipped and pulled up to let air flow through the carrycot, which is particularly practical on a hot day. This has two positions, fully open (as pictured below) and half open. Both positions have magnetic points that will also hold the canopy in place.
