GATE CHECK, not luggage check - there IS a difference!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: JL Childress Gate Check Bag for Car Seats, Red (Baby Product)
This bag is for when you take your car seat through the airport and check it at the airplane itself - gate checking! It's made to keep it clean, and yes I have had baby things come back pretty dirty, but not often. It then folds right back up in it's little bag. It is NOT made to go through airport baggage where it's on the conveyor belts and thrown around like crazy. If you look at the other bad reviews, they are almost all made by folks who have checked this as baggage, not gate checking.
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!
