Customer Reviews:

  • Works perfectly
    I have traveled with my Britax Marathon carseat without this product and I will never do that again. Even if this product had only lasted for one trip, it was completely worth every penny. We had no issues with wear and tear on it and it worked very well to carry the carseat and everything a travel high chair. I highly recommend this product if you ever plan to travel with your carseat....more info
  • The perfect car seat carrier!
    We used this car seat carrier in December when we went to Colorado. It worked perfectly and we were able to put all of our ski jackets in with the car seat. I was determined to buy a car seat carrier with wheels, and am so glad I did - it was well worth it. I was so happy to have this one, especially after seeing people walking around the airport carrying theirs on their back. Yikes!!!...more info
  • Extremely Handy Bags
    I have 2 kids, 2 years and 10.5 months. My husband and I just got back from Palm Beach, FL and we didn't know what to do with the car seats so we thought it would be easiest to wheel them through the airport. We had both kids in our double stroller, the diaper bag, my purse, an extra bag with the DVD player, a small suitcase carry on and 2 of these bags with a toddler carseat in each. Without these bags on wheels I don't know how it would have been possible to get all of this, without going insane, through the airport all the way to the end of the terminal. My husband was even able to place the small suitcase carry-on on top ot one of the travel bags and loop the strap though to wheel that as well. These also have shoulder straps and I had to place each bag on one shoulder while pushing the double stroller with the kids while my husband was checking our luggage, 3 large suitcases and 1 portacrib. On the way coming back we had bought some beach toys and there is enough room in the bags for anything extra, so we threw the plastic wagon in with one and the buckets and shovels in the other...anyways, we don't know what we would've done without these bags. This was a lot of stuff to take, everything but the highchairs, and just having wheels on the bags was so worth the money to us. The 2 travel bags and double stroller were checked as carry-on with the pink tags and given back to us as soon as we exited the plane so they were not damaged in anyway and we will be using them on our next airplane trip for sure!...more info
  • very convenient
    We used this carrier while on a trip to Florida. It was very convenient to use and wheel through the airport since we dont check the carseat so we can use it on the plane. Since the bag as 2 zippers on it, we were actually able to leave my sleeping daughter in the car seat in the bag with the zippers part way down in each side so her face was out. This way I didnt have to carry a sleeping baby and by other bags through the aiirport- I just pulled her along in the car seat since it has wheels. She fell asleep in her carseat while on the plane and didnt wake up until after we got off the plane, picked up our baggage, got our rental car, and put her car seat in the car and were traveling to our destination. We also have used the Eddie Bauer bag on a past trip - the strap broke while carrying it through the airport and it doesnt have wheels so it was much more difficult to carry. ...more info
  • Okay Product
    I was very excited to get this product as I was traveling with a toddler by myself. The item does protect your carseat which was very important to me but I did find some flaws. The first one is that you can not pull it down the aisle of the airplane. It is too wide. I do have an Eddie Bauer 3-1 convertible carseat so maybe that was the reason but trying to hold a toddler and unable to get the carseat down the aisle was not fun. Also this item has to be pulled perfectly straight. If you turn even a bit it will fall to it's side and then you have to stop and upright it before you can continue on. I love the idea but for what I paid for it I expected better. ...more info
  • Loved it! A Life Saver
    I couldn't imagine traveling with a wandering toddler alone with all the carry-ons AND the car seat. This car seat carrier sure is a life saver. It's easy to use, easy to roll and easy to fold & store. It makes a big difference having those wheels. My only concern with this product was the fabric, it was thinner than I expected. If it were to have a sturdier fabric, it would be perfect....more info
  • Has worked great for us as checked baggage
    We have used this bag on a trip to UK and back (2 flights each way) and on a trip to Ohio. It went as checked baggage each time so I can't comment on how useful it is if you want to take it and your car seat on board. For us, it kept the car seat and base clean and dry with no damage to either the bag or it's contents. I would have given it 5 stars if it wheeled a bit better - it seems to want to wiggle way more than I'd ideally like but it was nothing that I couldn't handle....more info
  • Great for Traveling
    Took this with us to Alaska. It worked great at the airport...very easy to wheel around lots of people. The baggage handlers loved the strap to hold onto. We also loaded it on and off the train and the carseat has never been damaged. The carrier is made of a strong material and it is easy to clean off....more info
  • Handy Car Seat Carrier
    Before realising that there actually was such a thing as a car seat carrier, my husband and I used to stuff our car seat into plastic garbage bags and tape them shut. It kept the seat clean (and we even had plenty of airline staff commend us on even thinking to bag our seat to keep it clean), but obviously did nothing to make it easier to tote around the airport.

    Then I found out about car seat carriers, and chose this one as it had the most favourable reviews. It was purchased just before a trip to Colorado, and has since also been to Europe and back.

    I'm extremely happy with this item. It's relatively easy to put our convertible Evenflo car seat into, and the canvas and zippers have held up well, with no obvious signs of wear yet, even after braving the luggage belts.

    The only tip I can give people is that my husband and I found that the car seat has a tendency to wobble or tip over more when pulled in a more upright position (much like small wheelie carry on luggage), and was more stable to pull when you had it leaning backward quite far, so that it's center of gravity is lower. So you might need/be able to use the strap that comes with it or something else to attach to the handle so that you have some extra length to tip it back further. Both my husband and I were a little too tall for just the handle to do that comfortably.

    For anyone looking for a way to more easily take their carseat along, I definitely recommend this product....more info
  • perfect for travelling
    This was great when we travelled. It kept our car seat from getting dirty, wet, or damaged. The fact that it has wheels is great and we were able to get around easily at the airport. Don't know what we would have done without it....more info
  • Liked it. Buying another one.
    This is great. It's so handy and much easier to use than lugging the carseat without it. The problems are the same as what everyone else says:
    -Could use some padding/thicker for protection. But that's not really what it's supposed to be for.
    -Hard to pull for anyone over about 5'6". I can pull it okay but my husband has to hunch over to reach the handle.
    -Would be better with four wheels. You have to really have it tipped down for it to maneuver properly. I think if the wheels swiveled it wouldn't be so bad.
    I still think this is the best one on the market so far.
    Edit: I just saw that they have made a new one for $4 more that has a handle extension and a shoulder strap so they have corrected one of the problems......more info
  • Big enough for Evenflo Triumph Advance
    I bought this cover for my Evenflo Triumph Advance convertible car seat (up to 50 pounds), and it fits. It is a big car seat, so there is not much extra room, but the zipper is not tight. So far, I used it once to check in the car seat, and it worked just fine.
    I tried the Safety First cover and it didn't fit my car seat. The finish of the product was very good (slightly better than the Wheelie), but definitely smaller. ...more info
  • Seat cover worked for us
    This product worked for us. We wheeled and carried it at different times and both worked fine. Once you stuff the seat in, you have a lot of room to stuff things in it. We stuffed in a blanket and soft car seat toys (the ones that you attached to the actual car seat). It was perfect b/c I could bring those normal things for baby to feel comfortable w/o having to hold them or jam them into the diaper bag (which is already packed full!).

    I found the material of the bag decent -- it didn't rip at all. I imagine this will work for us for sometime and if we ever get any tears, it is called duct tape, people!!! :-)

  • Not that great
    I found several problems with this bag. First, the zipper broke very quickly. Luckily, there were two (that meet each other), and one remained functional. Next the handle/strap broke. Also, I found the height of this to be a little cumbersome but workable had there been no other issues. In some airports, the car seat will not fit through the security belt inside of the bag. I refuse to put my car seat on the filthy belt then put my child in it so that was a problem to get a supervisor to check the seat without putting it through the security belt. Next, the wheels broke off, and the material started to tear. I owned this bag for less than 1 year. I do travel quite a bit; however, I only gate checked the item - never checked all the way through. I found that getting a plain gate check bag (the red JL Childress ones) to protect the seat then putting the car seat on a luggage cart works much, much better. The height of the luggage cart is more comfortable, and the cart is much more durable. No issues with the seat fitting on security belts either because the bag is like a nylon sack. And, the luggage rack folds up easily. I would not purchase this bag again....more info
  • Couldn't have traveled without it
    As an expat living in Malaysia, I'm constantly traveling back and forth from Asia to the US with my 2-year-old daughter. Typically, my husband flies out with us and lugging the car seat isn't too much of a problem. However, he has to return earlier for work and I'm typically on my own during the way back.

    I didn't know how I was going to manage carrying the car seat (and my daughter DEFINITELY travels better when we have the seat) so I purchased this carrier. It's big enough to fit the Britex Roundabout and my carry on bag (which I put on the car seat, inside the carrier). I was able to pull the carrier with my bag inside while pushing the stroller.

    I would have rated it a '5' however, the durability was a bit questionable as one of the bars that supports the bottom of the carrier 'popped' out while I was pulling the bag. This is probably because you're not suppose to put anything in it except for the car seat, so perhaps I overloaded it? I was able to fix it so all was not lost. ...more info
  • Horrible
    I used this bag once when traveling and then the zipper completely fell off because it was improperly made, then I got a new bag (customer service was very nice and helpful) and it has a huge rip in the bottom after only traveling with it once and gate checking it (my stroller wasn't damaged), so I have concluded that it is horribly made and a waste of money, still waiting on a refund....more info
  • Car Seat Carrier was a life saver!!
    We have the big Britax car seat and the carrier worked well, lots of room for our winter coats too! As far as tipping problems, it is all about center of gravity. If you use the longer handle so it leans down more it doesn't tip. We were able to hook it to our other large luggage bag to pull behind and it worked for us. I would highly recommend!...more info
  • Great Car Seat Cover
    This is a great, durable car seat cover for any type of travel. The materal is of heavy duty fabric which will stand up to alot of abuse. They are a little tricky to pull through the airports as they do have only two wheels and have their own way of going in a different direction at times. It seems the faster one goes, this happens, especially if one is pulling two of them. But--they really are great car seat covers and protect the child's seat. ...more info
