Lots of traveling moms I know complain about how annoying it can be to schlepp their kid’s car seat through the airport. I don’t envy them; the few times we’ve done it, my husband’s wrist looked like he was suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. If you’re planning to fly the friendly skies anytime this summer, you won’t have to struggle with the bulk of a cumbersome seat, thanks to the new Britax Car Seat Travel Bag. Designed to fit most standard car seats, this sturdy bag features carry handles and padded shoulder straps, so you can carry it backpack-style. Or, if you’re so inclined, use the built-in wheels and pull it behind you. Worried that you’ll lose your gear at the baggage claim? A handy luggage tag lets you proudly ID this bag as your own. The other passengers will surely be envious of your smart packing. And now Dear Old Dad won’t have to kill himself maneuvering Junior’s through Terminal B. The Britax Car Seat Travel Bag will be available in July.
In a Nutshell: Excessive baggage is never fun, unless it means smoother traveling. This car seat bag will take you from plane to automobile faster than that attendant at the Hertz car rental window will.
