Being an expat, I travel from Houston TX back to England several times a year with my nearly 2 year old son. Trying to man-handle a toddler, diaper bag, buggy and carseat through an airport and onto a plane on my own is not fun. However this carseat bag makes it much easier. I have used it 4 times so far both domestic and intercontinental and have been very pleased. It fits my son's enormous Britax Marathon (upto 65lbs) seat fairly comfortably though there is a knack of fitting it base first into the bag and then it zips up easily. If you don't get this bit right, its a real struggle so I just start again. So now I am organised - boy in buggy, diaper bag hangs off buggy, carseat as a backpack or you can trundle it along on its wheels. It can also be used inside-out as a reflective carseat shade if you want.

This item was great. We have Britax Marathon and it fit well enough for us to cram in a Jumbo size bag of Pampers. My husband and I (as usual) overpacked, and between lugging the luggage and our squirming toddler, we used both the backpack straps and the wheels. My husband was able to adjust the straps to fit his large frame and I was able to adjust them to fit my much shorter, petite size. On the return flight, we checked it and except for a few scratches, it weathered very well.
I would definitely recommend this to any parent who will have his/her hands full before, during and after an adventure with a child and the airlines!

I bought this item for an airplane trip. I searched several stores before buying this one. I decided it was worth spending the extra money since the material felt thicker, it included straps to use as a backpack and it was on wheels. The salesman also told me he didn't think the airlines would tear this one. He was wrong! After only the first flight, the bottom of the bag had two large tears. Even though the airline is paying to replace the bag, it is a big inconvenience to have to repace it every time I fly. If you only fly occasionally the bag may be ok for you. Also, I would recommend that you gate check it instead of checking it in at the counter.

I have three children (four and under). I fly between New York and Detroit several times year with all three children, all by myself. When the baby moved up to the big car seat (Britax Roundabout) I was concerned how to lug my three children, two Britax seats and a diaper bag from the parking lot, through check-in and the airport to the plane. This carrier saves my life and in the winter easily stores the kids three winter coats with the car seat as we wheel down to the gate. I would HIGHLY recommend this product. I wish that I had known about it sooner.
TIP: I use the Graco DuoGLide double stroller. The baby (14 months) sits in the front seat (canopy and tray removed) my middle son (almost three) sits in the rear seat. I flip one Britax upside down between the two seats and put the other in the carrier to either pull or wear on my back. Also, I ship our clothes to the destination a week ahead so that I have less luggage.

We own two of these and they have never been easy to use. We tore holes in the first one trying to insert the seat. We have kept it though. We bought another and on our second trip the zippers broke off. We would not buy this one again. We do have large carseats - they are both Britax Marathons.

My husband and I wanted to take our Britax Advantage with us on a recent trip. This car seat protector was great! The seat was not damaged and was easily to carry through the airports because of the wheels. Even with our large car seat we were still able to stash a pack of diapers and blankets. When traveling with a baby and all of her necessities it was great for extra storage. The bag is also very sturdy - we HIGHLY recommend it!

I agree with other reviewers--too flimsy. It survived the first use (barely), but I wound up with a hole in the bag because it was dragging on the ground as it rolled (the bag is not supported by anything except right where the wheels attach). But the zipper partially broke that trip, and by end of the first trip, the zipper had completely come off the track so that it had to be taped up by the baggage handlers to keep it around the car seat. It might work okay for a small car seat, but we have a larger Cosco Alpha Omega Elite, and it was a struggle to get it in and out every time. I just bought a Safe To Go Wheelie car seat travel bag with wheels (for only $10 more) and the seat goes into it easily, it has a base that's got some support to keep it from dragging, and seems a bit sturdier. I also got a sunshade for $6 that's a lot smaller (about the size of a softball) and more convenient than the Safefit protector.

By the time we had wheeled our Britax Roundabout from the parking lot to the check in desk at the airport the fabric at the bottom of the bag already had two holes in it!

The flaw in the design is that there are only two wheels. The mistake we made was that we thought we had it angled so that only the wheels were on the ground when in fact we had to too vertical and the fabric was rubbing on the ground too. This resulted in two holes in a very short amount of time. If you make sure that only the wheels and nothing else are touching the ground then you might still have an intact bag at the end of your flight. but the material is way too flimsy and the slightest mistake on your part will result in holes. We have duct taped our holes and are still using the bag, but are kind of dissapointed.

If the material was much stronger then this would be a good product.

We used this car seat carrier on our vacation - it was big enough for our britax marathon and I could easily drag it behind me on its wheels while pushing our stroller. I also put some carry on luggage in with the car seat so we had less bags to lug around. You can put the seat with the bag on the airplane seat and just unzip and push the sides of the bag down so you don't have to struggle putting the car seat in and out of the bag. At the end of the flight we just unbuckled the seat, pulled up sides and zipped it up and were ready to go. It was a hassle getting the seat down the aisle of the plane because it was too big to roll, so try to get a seat up front if you can. My only complaint is that one of the back pack strap plastic rings cracked after our 2nd use, but since we only use the wheels and not the back pack part it doesn't matter and for the price, this bag is certainly worth it.

I have the Eddie Bauer Carseat travel bag and it works great if you don't mind lugging a heavy carseat and whatever else you end up cramming into it around the airport on your shoulders between flights. I decided to try this one because it has wheels, and when traveling alone with a toddler anything with wheels was a plus. Because I had read the previous reviews I had expected the bottom to rip and it did, but not until the 4th flight and I just grabbed the duct tape and ran it over the bottom while we were waiting for the plane and it was good to go (tho it probably would have been fine without it for one or two more trips). In all it held my Britax roundabout perfectly as well as coats and misc. carry on, it rolled well and was easily managed, the rips were a minor inconveince and just having the carseat on wheels was worth the price of the bag even if it had to be thrown away after the first couple of trips. We checked it all the way through our last trip and the carseat, cover and other contents all came through completely in tact! I give it 4 stars as it's more convenient than the Eddie Bauer, but not quite as durable, if your husband is comming with you and can pack-mule the Eddie Bauer I'd go with that but if you are going it alone, I'd recommend wheels on everything!
