First some context: I am a father of two and owner of 3 strollers and 3 car seats. I travel with my wife and daughters between 3-4 times a year. I have purchase other bags for the purpose of covering my strollers and car seats in the past but have now settled with this "gate check" bag.
As parents know, traveling with small children requires patience and a lot of stuff. Having something that protects your stuff is key if you want to use it more than once. For that reason I have purchased a bag for each of my strollers and car seat that I used when traveling on a plane. It is cleared to me that if you don't use a bag your stuff will get damage or dirty easily.
If you have an expensive stroller or car seat and want to keep it intact you probably need to buy the brand's hard bag. No need to lie here. This bag is great for its intended purpose but it is still made from normal threads so if you want bullet-proof material, don't think that this one will stand to your expectations.
This bag is great to keep your normal stroller clean and it would protect it from its normal wear and tear. It won't protect it from a clumsy or awful bag taker. The only way you are going to be saved from those people is having a hard bag but that it is impossible when you are gate checking. In others words this is as good as you get for gate checking bags.
In terms of fitting well, check the right size for your stroller and car seat. There is a bag for each purpose. I have purchased the umbrella stroller size and it fit perfectly for my Uppa Baby stroller.Read more ›
By the way, if you are gate checking spend the best $15 of your life and get Traveling Toddler Car Seat Travel Accessory. Use it with a sturdy carry on bag with a long enough handle that you don't have to stay bent over, and fill your carry on so it's solid. Filled with some of your and your childs things in it (we all know how invaluable that extra set of baby things are if your luggage is lost!) and with your car seat on it, it saves you checked luggage fees $$$ and is convenient! What more could you ask for! A stroller through the airport and no fees for your car seat as luggage or having to rent a (usually old and yucky) car seat with your rental! :)
Even if you aren't using it as a stroller for your older kids car seats, it sure is nice not to have to carry the car seats!
There were two car seats sitting on the run way - the other baby on our plane had her car seat FACE DOWN IN A PUDDLE, w/ the headrest cover laying next to it. pretty much ruined (jet fuel and oil is not good for babies) - ours was still in the red bag, totally protected and dry!
Without this we would have been totally screwed and would have had to throw away the car seat! (and we would probably have to find a new one at a store while my wife waits at the airport!)
To the people who are leaving reviews saying it doesn't "last long" or "handle breaks easily" - who cares, I'd rather the bag gets damaged then the car seat inside of it! Luggage handlers are not gentle - if they are going to break something, i'd rather it be a $11 bag then a $200 car seat.
Also - EXPLANATION OF GATE CHECKING FOR NEW PARENTS - every airline will allow you to GATE CHECK your stroller- you bring it through security, to the actual gate where you board the plane- Take the car seat and put in the bag BEFORE you give them your ticket to board the plane, they will print an extra baggage tag at the gate, attach it to the car seat bag (and stroller - if you have one like ours that comes in two pieces so the seat can be used in the car) and then an attendant will take the stroller for you right before you get on.Read more ›
Also keep the plastic case it comes in because trying to fold it up back into the self contained zip pouch is nearly impossible. Much easier to roll it up and stuff it back into the plastic case.
Fits umbrella stroller with plenty of room to spare.
