OK capsule, has some issues and is quite heavy
I purchased the Isofix version of the Unity in January in preparation for my daughter who was born in Feb. The fabrics feel very high quality and the capsule itself has a very sturdy feel. This does make it quite heavy, even without a baby in it, so I can see that I may not pull it in and out of the car once my daughter gets towards the 12 month stage. The capsule is very easy to install, using either isofix or seatbelt method. I have found that in my car I needed to have the recline foot out all the way to get the appropriate recline for my newborn. It is easy to remove from the car by un hooking the tether strap, pulling the lever at the back and lifting the capsule out, however it is a lot tricker to put back in. Once you have clipped it to the base (which is simple), you then must reattach the tether strap. The little plastic holders the tether strap has to go through on the capsule are very small and difficult to access, I find myself having to bend down and look behind the capsule in order to slide it through, it is very hard to do it from feel alone. I also had a problem with the newborn head support insert not offering enough support for my newborn. It caused her head to flop to the sides in a very disturbing manner. Although side head flop is not dangerous (It’s head to chin you need to worry about as this can cause asphyxiation risks) it was not something I was happy with at all. I contacted Britax and they sent me a replacement insert which was a different style to the one which came with the capsule and this solved my problem. I think they need to revaluate the type of insert which comes with the capsule as I have seen online that many people have the same issue. I have included a picture with the original insert and the new insert so you can see the difference it made to my newborn. I probably wouldn’t buy this capsule again due to the issues with the insert, and the fact that it is so heavy and cumbersome to put back into the car. I would instead purchase the Unity Neo’s (Not the isofix version which is what this is) or look at a different brand. There are only a couple on the market which have A2 Height markers like the Unity does however so that would play a part in which capsule I would purchase. Also if you need a capsule for a premmie baby the Unity Isofix is the only one on the market with premmie slots, another thing to consider when purchasing.
