I'm wondering if any capsules that rate well fit the Phil & Teds?

It lists the maxi cosi cabrio fix, pebble & mico, the safe n sound unity & The peg perego Primo viaggio but I don't think any of these rate well?

Cabriofix, pebble are not legal and not sold in Australia.

The 2004 standard versions if the Unity and Mico tested poorly. The Peg Viaggio tested OK for the 2004 standard seats. I don't know what (if any) modifications were made to these seas for their 2010 standard update and whether or not this improved or reduced safety as no CREP testing is available for any 2010 standard seats.

So best bet for me would be the Viaggio.

What about the Safety 1st on the Maxi-cosi adaptors? Might work, a friend managed to get one on a Smart (which I think is an awesome travel system) but she did have to take two bits out of the bottom of the capsule.

OK did not explain that very well but if you could get it to work you would be able to use a 5 star rated capsule.

Or you could wait for the new CREP results to come out but they seem to be taking forever  rolleyes.gif .

Or just use the Viaggio as PP helpfully suggested  original.gif .

I'm in the same dilemma! I emailed P & T yesterday asking for suggestions but I haven't heard back yet. I saw that the Steelcraft Cruiser will be on sale soon at Target and I'm wondering if that will fit the Unity adaptor?

Let me know what you decide!

Do the new crep ratings change anything? I'm totally confused!

New CREP tests did not test capsules.

Also they changed their testing methods, so you can't compare results across standards tested.
