  • This thing is HUGE. It fits our Britax Marathon perfectly and makes it much easier to carry. However, be careful turning - I always feel like we’re going to injure the passengers next to us! Feb 20, 2020

  • Perfect for gate checking car seat. Straps makes it so you can carry on your back and be hands free. Feb 15, 2020

  • Borrowed this from a friend. Good quality. A little big for infant car seat. Jan 26, 2020

  • Just traveled with this, while it's a little big to store when not used, it protected our carseat perfectly when checked at the airport. Fit our chicco keyfit and base together. Will fit convertible Dec 17, 2019

    This is so worth it - even if you only travel once. Thick to help prevent damage to your seat. Wear as backpack. Holds infant seat and base. Nov 20, 2019

  • Super duper tight fit on a stroller that falls under compatible section. My wife and I have to shake shake shake the bag and then pray and plead for it to zip up. Nov 02, 2019

  • This travel bag is great for gate checking your car seat. It's large, but helps to protect your car seat from getting scratched while traveling via airplane. Sep 12, 2019

  • Incredible car seat travel bag. It even fits the bulky Graco Convertible car seats. We have 3 for all 3 car seats and because they have a backpack strap, my husband can carry them all at once. Aug 27, 2019

  • Great for any car seat and the straps allow you to wear like a bookbag Aug 21, 2019

  • This made it very easy to travel with our baby gear - my husband wore it like a backpack. After one trip though, its already looking pretty banged up. Not sure how long it will actually last for. Aug 15, 2019

  • Required if you airplane travel. Makes moving in the airport quicker if you have to wrangle other luggage, stroller, toddler, etc. can be checked to keep seat clean. Aug 10, 2019

  • The bag is too big for an infant car seat with base. However, since you can check the car seat for free, we ended up putting diapers and other clothing in it that didn’t fit in our luggage. Aug 03, 2019

  • I used this when traveling alone with my 1 year old. I bought it because it can be worn as a backpack freeing up your hands in the airport. I dont know what I would have done without it. Aug 01, 2019

  • Hands free allows for easy travel! It was perfect for our Britax infant seat and Britax convertible car seat- we have 2 bags! Durable material and well made! An excellent choice for flying! Jul 20, 2019

  • There was more than enough room our infant's car seat and base. Try it before you fly to get the best configuration. Plus, I was able to stash some extra diapers and wipes in the bag. Jul 10, 2019
