Hi Isolabella and others full of carseat wisdom
I was going to hire a capsule from the ambulance, but am now looking at the Steelcraft Agile Plus travel system. Do these capsules get put through crash tests as well and does anyone know how they rate?

I used a Strider Plus capsule on my Agile, which gets four stars in CREP testing, so pretty good. I found the whole travel system really good - it was so much more convenient than having to take the baby out of her seat and then back in again for short stops (e.g. school drop off), and being able to pop it on the pram was great (they get heavy!). I only bought the pram after I'd been using the capsule for a few weeks, and having the travel system was a magical improvement. I wish I'd had it for my older kids.

jump onto CREP and have a look. i dont think they have done new testing though so it may not be there yet?
i may be wrong though

I have the strider plus capsule too, travel systems are awesome

Thanks for the replies I have 3 older kids, all in school, so yes the quick stops like that is my main reason for looking at the travel systems. A friend of mine is using a travel system now for her #4 and she wishes she'd always had it for the other kids too.
Is the Strider Plus the one that normally goes with the Agile? Or are there a few? Feeling totally clueless here!

I think it's one of two or three that are compatible. There's a chart on the Britax website.
