    I purchased this car seat cover for my “round two” of travel/flying solo with my Tiny Tot. Round one I learned a few things and I changed up my styles bit for this one. I have two pictures also posted above regarding the tight squeeze of zipping my seat in and a smart/space saving packing tip.

    I have an Evenflo Symphony 65 e3 All-In-One Convertible Car Seat and it ALMOST didn’t fit. Let me say this, if you do have two car seats I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you Pre-pack the one you’re traveling with at Home. I did a test run of my seat in our house and thankfully I did because it put up a fight! I had to squeeze and tweek the seat adjustments of my chair by raising the head rest and pullinh the zippered pieces together so that it could fit the contours of the stitching of the bag (insert “…Fat man in a Little Coat..”). I would have hated to attempt to bag my car seat at a busy airport traveling solo with a mobile infant. At home he could walk around, etc. in the confines and I didn’t have to worry about him being kidnapped (seriously, it could happen), wandering off, hit by a car at passenger drop off/parking lot.

    Once your car seat is packed (depending on the size) and on your back you are a walking barge, keep that in mind so you don’t bump yourself into something/one. I’m a 5’4″/140lbs female and I could carry my seat on my back, you’ll look like a pack mule but it can be done (remember you’re only carrying it to baggage check!).

    *HIGHLY SUGGESTED* *Smart/Space-saving Packing Tip* If you’re traveling with bulky diaper, wipes, extra blankets, etc. all the Extras kids come with use the plastic zipper bag the seat is packaged, place those bulky items in there, and put them in the car seat before you zip it up! This saved so much space in my personal luggage. Additionally, God forbid, if your zipper breaks (mine has not, but we have only used it for One round-trip flight so far) your items are secured in the bag! They won’t fly all over the place and get randomly lost! Also, as seen above, the bag is CLEAR, if TSA needs to check your seat for security measures, it’s easy for them to see what you have and again, your stuff won’t fall out and get lost!

    UPDATE: 3/30/14
    I had to bump this review up to five stars. I have now traveled with this protective bag on many flights over the past year. There is one area on the bottom that’s starting to show wear but that’s what’s to be expected after 5-6 round trip flights. I’m no longer stuffing the inside seat area due to our boy getting older and requiring less excess stuff (diapers, a million bath toys, wipes, etc) and that has tremendously assisted in this bag zipping much easier. The airline counter employees compliment the bag due to it making handling much easier. It makes solo travel easier also.

    I purchased this for a last minute flight to a funeral out of state. Having never flown with my infant before, let alone on my own with infant, I was extremely nervous about having to transport a carseat too. We live very frugally, so our 4 month old uses a convertible seat that I intend to be used until she can ride without one. What if my carseat was damaged while flying and then I’m stuck at the airport unable to travel to get a new one? Worst case scenario of course, but new mothers like myself worry! So I quickly jumped on Amazon (and just thankfully just signed up for Prime a couple days prior) and scoured for the best reviewed car seat case. I always do thorough research, making sure to get the best deal for both quality and price. I was even hesitant to check the car seat along with the suitcases, knowing it would go through more handing. But I went ahead and checked it normally to avoid hauling one extra thing through security to gate check in. I’m pleased to say that after two flights, my carseat is still perfectly intact and the strong canvas of the bag doesn’t have any snags or tears. I love that the bag has extra padding to protect the upper sides of the car seat. Placing the carseat inside the bag is a breeze. The stitching is strong, the zipper glides with ease and security, and the backpack feature is a lifesaver when already trying to lug suitcases, a diaper bag and child along. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

    Works well with the Chicco Keyfit 30; so far no problems., January 4, 2013

    K31Th (New York, NY) –

    We use this product with our Chicco Keyfit 30 infant car seat. The car seat fits in this backpack. The best way to put the car seat into the backpack (in our opinion) is have the car seat attached to the base, and put the base along the side that will be alongside your back. When closing the zippers around the car seat, we find it to be a snug fit at two points, but it still closes without any issues (no breakage, no zipper damage).

    So here’s the good points that we like about this car seat travel bag. It can hold a lot more stuff than just the car seat. We stuff a lot of additional things into this bag, it’s crazy. The trick we find is to put the additional items into soft bags (plastic bags or those eco-friendly grocery bags), because the additionals would be easier to remove and replace during the security check at the airport. Rather than taking out additional items one by one, just having a bag or two to remove works better.

    The last time we traveled, we had just north of 35 lbs of stuff in it (car seat included), and the travel bag worked fine.

    So far, we’ve traveled a few times with it without a problem. We’ve gate-checked the bag twice, and we’ve counter checked-in the bag twice. One travel was on an international flight. Our last travel where we checked-in the travel bag unfortunately involved a layover and a flight transfer (so it was handled a lot), but the bag held up fine. From all of these travels, we haven’t had any damage to our travel bag or to the car seat inside. I was a bit concerned during the times we decided to check in the travel bag at the airport counter (less for me to carry to the gate), but everything turned out fine.

    Being able to toss extra stuff into this thing then gate-check it is really nice. It really expands the amount of stuff you can bring with you and not have to check in (then retrieve at baggage claim). Nowadays, it seems like the overhead compartments are smaller and smaller, and the airlines really wants travelers to check in as much of their luggage as possible at the counter. We can use smaller carry-on items (or smaller pullmans), and stuff the travel bag with items that we don’t need during the flight (no liquids no sharps, of course). We (I) carry the thing on my back all the way down the jetway then hand it off by the airplane door, and the airline will stow the travel bag with the rest of the luggage during the flight. When we arrive and deplane, the travel bag is waiting for us at the jetway. Gate check-in. Never did it before, but now a big fan of it.

    Another bonus feature of this style of bag is that it’s a backpack. Having arms and hands free to carry or to address other stuff (a child about to knock something over, for example) is nice. It’s not easy to spin 360° with it on or do the tango with it, but there is still plenty of movement possible. Hand and arms free though is key. Just be careful not to hit anybody with the bag when turning or when say, in an elevator.

    We kept the plastic bag that it came in (which is zippered shut). When we are not using the travel bag, we pack it up, keep it in the plastic bag, and then just store it in the closet.

    Overall, we like this product very much. No damage and no zipper problems. No rips (so far, knock on wood). Hands-free. Arms-free. Convenient extra space for gate checks. Works well with the Chicco Keyfit 30.

    (Not sure how it will hold up with other car seats. Maybe other car seats are too big and bulge out the zipper too much?)
