I got this capsule as part of a pram set. It was brilliant.
A little on the heavy side but my baby who is in the 95th percentil for length fitted in it for over 12 months.
I could clip the capsule onto the pram and onto the base in the car in 2 secondes. So handy no to have to move bub around and wake him up.
I used it with the isofix base which means a very quick and easy installation in the car.
This was a brilliant choice for us. We have the bugaboo and really wanted something that would attach to the pram for when our daughter was young.
I was really lucky in the fact that my little girl is quite petite and at 11 months was still in it. I upgraded to a car seat just to give her a little more space now that she's older and a little more active.
I heard stories of people having to take their children out at 5 months due to size but I really didn't have an issue with it so it wasn't a problem for me.
I felt the capsule was secure, comfortable for my daughter and provided all the safety required
It would get dirty and need a good clean from time to time but probably no more or less than any other seat.
Realistically it's almost twice the price of the other capsules out there but I'd definitely make the same choice if I had to do it all again.
we got this capsule as it was the only one available at the time that fitted our pram as a travel system (stokke).
It is a very secure and safe capsule, very easy to install and comfortable for baby. The benefits of a capsule are undoubtedly worth the cost.
However, compared to other capsules now on the market it is heavy,expensive and even though it rates up to 9kg, we had to give up on it at about 8kg (5 months) as we couldnt close the straps over our baby! (however be aware that many babies will hit the capsule height limit before the weight limit, and height limits seem pretty uniform across all capsules)
The manufacturer also states not to use bulky nappies on your baby in the capsule so that is something worth thinking about if you are doing cloth nappies.
