Holy smokes, were we wrong.
The bag was literally reduced to shreds after a SINGLE FLIGHT. To be honest, it wasn't even a bag anymore, but a very-thin piece of nylon with a handle. I honestly felt like we were on the show Punk'd or something -- that's how bad/funny it was walking through LAX trying to hold the "bag" with the 4-pound booster in it.
Very rarely do Amazon reviews let my family down. Maybe we got a bad bag, I don't know, but this very well may be the worst Amazon purchase we have made to-date. It was a massive disappointment.
Were it possible, I would give this item zero stars.
Save yourself some headache and pick a different bag -- heck, a plastic grocery bag would probably have kept it's "bag" form longer than this one did.
Returning for a refund.
****UPDATE*** I received the replacement and it was fine; however, these bags only last 2-3 trips. On our 3rd or 4th trip, this bag was shredded when we picked it up from the gate after getting off the airline; there was nothing wrong with the bag before the flight. The good part of this, is that the bags are cheap enough to purchase every couple years, but I wish it would last longer.
*I hope my review was helpful for you!
Southwest Airlines now offers its own version which is much better quality (and better looking) for only $15 that you can buy at the Southwest Ticket Counter whether you are flying them or not. SWA's version is one size that can be used for car-seat or stroller.
