          Very happy with how my Booster fits without a struggle. It's nicely padded on the back with a long zipper flap. Haven't tested it w Airlines, but it feels solid and durable. It could be too large for an infant carrier, but perfect for high backed boosters

            We used when flying, we were able to check our car seats confidently with these carriers. Our seats were protected and secure. I particularly liked that these were backpacks leaving our hands free to wield kids and our bags. Would purchase again and I know we'll use again!

              Comments about Ultimate Car Seat/Booster Seat Carrier:

              I spent a lot of time researching car seat travel bags. At first I thought it would be a waste of money to buy a travel bag. But I expect my Britax car seat to last a long time and I plan to have at least 2-3 more kids. Also taking into consideration that the baggage handlers would just toss the seat made me weary so after a lot of research this is the bag I bought. It honestly exceeded my expectations.

              It's very roomy and padded. I had plenty of extra space to throw in a travel bed and there was plenty more space for other non-breakable items. I personally am not one to carry a bunch of stuff onto an airplane with a baby in tow but if you want to carry it and check it at the gate it had straps on the back. I found these helpful when I had to pick up my luggage at baggage claim especially when I travel alone with my son.

              The bag handled my recent trip very well and I would highly recommend it. I went to several stores and looked at other bags but this one is by far the best quality and the best price. I even kept the plastic zip bag it came in for storage after use.

                This is a great product! We recently moved from the east coast to west coast so had to bring both our kids carseats. With so many other things that we needed to pull/carry this was a great way to transport a big thing hands free.

                  I just bought this for a last minute trip to the east coast from Seattle. It came quickly, was plenty big and the backpack straps are really helpful and nice. There is also a little pocket on the outside for contact info. If you are not going to buy a seat and use the carseat on the plane, this is a great option. I don't think it would fit the new Britax Advocate G3, so I brought our Cosco Serena and it fit just fine, and there was extra room to stuff a pillow or diapers or whatever else.

                  Comments about Ultimate Car Seat/Booster Seat Carrier:

                  We bought this carrier for a week's vacation despite comments about the zipper failure. We inserted our Britax Marathon seat, plus some diapers, as there was plenty of extra room. The zipper failed upon lifting it to carry it out of the house! Since we were heading to the airport with no other option, we got the zipper back on track, wrapped it with a luggage strap and crossed our fingers at baggage claim at our destination. The diapers were still inside, but the zipper had come undone again across the whole top. For the return, we re-tracked the zipper, carefully strapped the thing, and didn't put anything extra in the carrier. This time one of the plastic buckles on a shoulder strap fell apart as we carried it into the airport. This was our first use of the product, and I had high expectations, but will not be purchasing another.

                    Comments about Ultimate Car Seat/Booster Seat Carrier:

                    I have a Britax car seat and this carrier worked just fine. The material is very durable and survived 2 flights so far. I read other reviews about the zipper breaking so I was extra careful making sure to hold the 2 sides of the bag together when zipping it up and I didn't have any problems. I could see if you weren't careful how the zipper may rip since the seat is snugly fit into the bag with little extra space (hence the 4/5 stars vs. 5/5).

                    I was debating between this and the car seat wheeler and ultimately choose this because I wanted to have a baby stroller on my trip and not a car seat as a stroller. I also wanted to have the car seat protected more than just the clear bags that some airlines provide. Although it was a little heavy on the back, ultimately the bag served its purpose and am happy with the purchase.

                        Used this to travel back eat to visit family. NOTE: we only used this 1 time.

                        Pros:
                        -Held up very well with 2 airline transfers
                        -protected our car seat (most airlines don't give you those plastic bags)
                        -my husband traveled alone and this allowed him to push the stroller and carry the car seat on his back w/ the backpack straps
                        -durable for the price (nothing is airline proof) this is a good resonable option for the price
                        -fits many car seats

                        Would buy again! Taking this on more trips.

                          This was a great buy. Did one flight without it and one with it. My husband almost went crazy trying to carry the carseat without this product. He was much happier with the backpack feature and it made going through the airport and layovers SO MUCH EASIER! Also, it held up great, it made it through 4 flights and still looks brand new.

                                    We used this on one roundtrip, and had to send it back by the time we got home.
                                    We have a Britax Boulevard, and the car seat fit, nice and snug. I was happy with the amount of padding, and it was nice in the airport to have hands free. Actually, my husband's hands were free. I literally could not stand up with it on my back because-- with the car seat in it-- it was too heavy (which has nothing to do with the product itself, except I could never use it on a trip without a strong helper; which isn't always practical). It was cumbersome to take off & put on with all the lines in the airports.
                                    We anticipated these negatives, but thought it would be worth it to get the product to protect the seat. We gate checked the seat in the bag both ways, and by the time we got home, the zipper was coming apart: the kind of problem where it opens up after you zip it and won't stay closed (like your 10 year old backpack from high school used to do). That is definitely a no-no. We sent it back, and Diapers.com was awesome about giving us a refund. I wish it could have worked out, but next time we're going to try a wheelie (it really was too cumbersome to deal with). It looks like maybe we just got a bad apple, since the rest of the reviews are excellent, but I won't try for another of the same.

                                      Bought prior to taking our little girl on her first trip. We didn't want our Britax Roundabout carset getting damaged. Carseat was checked at the airport (coming & going)...picked up at baggage claim (both ways) without any damage to carseat or the bag. Husband set bag/carseat on top of his suitcase as we went through airport...worked wonderfully!

                                      Just what we were looking for! Put it on your back and your other hands are free to carry other things or push a stroller. Tons of space inside to pack other soft items.

                                      If you're flying and have to check a carseat, this carrier is the only way to go! I was surprised at how big the bag was, and that there was room for other baby supplies as well. Before even entering the airport, we got compliments on this bag and how smart it was to use. It is super durable, and our carseat made it to our final destination without any bumps, scratches, tears or germs!

                                      I was a little disappointed that we weren't able to gate check the carrier. I read some reviews where people had, but the airline we were flying said that the bag was too big and would need to be checked. All in all though, very happy with this purchase, and will be able to use bag many times over!
