Fit Radian 65 With A Small Amount Of Storage Space
on February 12, 2012
We purchased a pair of these seat covers for our Radian 65 seats and have used them for three vacations. Total of seven flight on each bag (one trip had three flight legs on different days). Thus far, they have held up fine. The seats fit in well, not so large that there is a ton of extra space, but not tight enough to make it difficult to get the seat in and out. We are able to fit in small extras for check-in (like a pack of diapers, wipes (for two weeks), beach accessories/toys (not a bucket), or a peapod infant travel tent. In addition to one of the above items, we can typically add in some extra outerwear for the kids to fill in the space around the seat. We like to keep the bag rather full - we believe this helps prevent damage to the bag material. Also, I have found lately that when check-in a car seat using a free allowance, airlines have been sensitive to packing additional items. They used to ask us to open the bags to verify nothing is in the bags. This have not happened to us once with these compact bags...the check-in staff just looks at the profile, the weight and lets them go. So even though you can't store as much by way of capacity I find that we actually get more storage space due to the logistics of check-in.
We travel with three smaller kids, so transportation to and from airports is always difficult. I have been able to pack both of these covers with seats and one additional check-in sized bag on the main storage rack of a typical airport bag cart. I am then able to place one additional check-in sized bag and a rolling in-cabin bag on top of these bags - point being the compact size is very helpful.
