Save your car seat and buy this!!!!

This is amazing! I cheaped out on our first trip with our Diono and regretted it big time. The airline or TSA broke our seat in one of those cheap red nylon bags. One of the reasons I hadn’t purchased this bag was because of the reviews. Well for our next trip I decided I had to try this, not only for my son’s safety on our trip, but also because I just can’t deal with having to get yet another car seat.
Most of the negative reviews are in regards to the back straps. Our bag had a single strap connector in the middle (pictured) and side connectors. Obviously the side connectors are pretty wide and I would only use them if I was attaching a single strap on one side (messenger bag style) to put it over one shoulder. The Rainier fit inside the bag PERFECTLY and because my son is still rear facing I was able to also fit the detachable rear facing base and the infant body support pillow in the bag. Due to the size I checked the car seat again, with much trepidation, however the car seat arrived in perfect condition at our destination AND at home. The bag held up very well to wear and tear with just a few minor scratches. This is expected as we all know how rough airlines are on checked baggage. I also don’t think it’s reasonable to mark down any stars based on weight as some other reviewers did. We all knew we were buying a heavy car seat when we bought it! Diono uses steel frames in their highly rated seats. I don’t care how heavy something is if it’s for my son’s safety. The bag itself is very light, no more than a couple of pounds.
Overall, yet another quality product from Diono. I haven’t been disappointed with one thing I’ve purchased from them and their customer service is fantastic. As a native Washingtonian, thank you Diono!!
