Built-in Lateral Support
What makes the Diego Back different from other systems is that it has been built with a child's growth in mind.
The built-in lateral support allows parents or care takers to quickly adjust the back width or contour height.
Different from our TFB back family, the Diego Back wings are designed to add depth contour and lateral support with one simple to understand hardware configuration.
The wings can be expanded to increase or decrease back width, or can be raised to position the lateral support right where you need it most.
Modular Lateral Support
The lateral support pads have been redesigned for a lighter and stronger profile.
With less flat surface frame the pad by itself reduces pressure points while still offering a reliable lateral support for the child.
Lateral Pad Sizes

The Diego Back lateral hardware is adapted from our popular thin modular hardware and redesigned for the Diego System. It comes in two configurations: a) Fixed or b) Swing-Away (shown).
The swing-away option allows to move out-of-the-way the hardware and pad by pushing a red button located on the outside of the hardware. Swings away approximately 120° with pad and 135° without it.

from Coolcore Website
A great base layer in summer is a great base layer in winter.
Stealth's Cushions Thermoregulation line is not a new technology, but a new application. The Coolcore Technology starts with cooling but the patented yarn technology makes for a better textile that provides year‑round temperature regulation.
Coolcore is a research proven performance fabric technology that adapts to its environment and regulates temperature by managing heat and moisture. The proprietary construction helps manage and distribute moisture quickly throughout the fabric to enhance the evaporation and drying time.
Chemical Free Fabric Technology
Normally other brand fabrics use topical chemicals that not only can be harmful to your skin, but after only a few washes, the cooling properties of the product are no longer effective. The Coolcore cooling technology is built into the fabric fibers, preventing any decline in the performance and keeping it's cooling properties. Coolcore patented technology allows for a controlled evaporative process that keeps you cool, dry and comfortable in any condition.
Research driven, patented fabrics from Coolcore are chemical-free and yield remarkable benefits. They cool better, last much longer and offer protection from the suns harmful rays (UPF)
