All those nice strollers and car seats, unprotected, gate checked. The way checked luggage is treated, damage must be commonplace.
Sunday evening a couple traveling from Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) with cloaked their stroller and car seat with handy gate check bags. The bags provide some manner of protection for all the dangly pieces and perhaps subconsciously elicit better attention from handlers.
The bags are made by J.L. Childress and come in sizes for standard & double strollers, umbrella strollers, and car seats. eBags sells them in sets of 2 for $23.99 and $27.99. The bags fold into themselves and zip up for easy storage.
Those not wanting to pay the price or tote bright red bags can crib the idea with a laundry bag or similar.
