We do quite a bit of traveling between Australia and New Zealand. I bought this to transport my urban jungle. First trip on my own wearing my 8 week old and having 1 suitcase plus the pram bag, I thought it would be so convenient being able to wheel along. The handle on this bag is so poorly made they honestly should not have bothered with the wheels. It feels like it's going to pull out under the weight of the pram. I wheeled it about 100m from the drop off to check in and noticed I had worn a hole in the bottom of the bag. That one would be my fault. Bottom line it will protect your pram but make sure you use a trolley and don't attempt to wheel it around anywhere.

I bought the travel bag before a trip to Queensland and found it did not fit my mountain buggy terrain pram well - too much of a tight fit no matter what configuration I lay the pram in the bag. The wheel axels were difficult to contain inside and have punched holes through the inner lining already (on first use). The handle for the bag is also not sturdy and cuts into your hand, and is flimsy to work with when lifting the bag in/out of the boot of my car. As a result of the terrain pram packing quite long into the travel bag, the outer material has caught and dragged on the concrete close to the wheels and torn a hole also. I don't find it fits nicely in this carry bag and am very disappointed to have spent $100 on a poor fitting travel bag for my pram, as I doubt I will use it again. It was easier to work with and carry folded up and checked in without it.

I buy to carry my stroller from Miami to Uruguay and arrived in perfect condition. I am very happy with my purchase.

While the bag does the job (keeps the pram from contained thus undamaged and scratched) it is awkward and difficult to use.
We have a Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan (not a huge 3 wheel pram!) and even having the bag as tight as we could possibly get it, it still dragged on the ground when trying to wheel it. Within minutes (carpark to airport terminal) the bag has a hole in the bottom of it from scraping along the ground.
On the way back, I turned the pram upside down hoping to eliminate the issue but no luck... another hole in the other side.
It is frustrating to spend the money and have this happen, however it keeps the pram contained whilst on the plane and I need it for that purpose.
Really practical but a questio over the handle

I bought this for our Uppababy Vista; I would have preferred the Uppababy carrier, but they seem to have supply issues to the UK, so I bought this as Mountain Buggy were able to guarantee supply at short notice, and it was also £20 cheaper and delivered for free. I'm glad we chose it, it is a really practical carrier, easily swallowing our buggy and protecting it from the rigours of baggage handlers.
It is very easy to use - with a bit of practise I can go from unpacked to fully packed in 90 seconds. My only concern is the carry handle at the top of the bag used to drag it in the wheels once packed, it does not seem to be attached as strongly as it could be, I am not sure how well it will hold up if we made extensive use of it (we will use it max 3 times a year, so hopefully it will hold up). A bit of a shame, as the rest of the bag is really well made and I would otherwise give it 5 stars, but for that I'm only giving 4 stars.
Almost worth it...

Bought this for interstate and international trips with our Swift. We have a newborn so we had the bassinet, but unfortunately the bag only just reached to tie itself all together, so after a couple of movements from trolley to carousel etc, it was beginning to come undone. The handle is too flimsy to pull along such a large package. However, the internal cords, plus the durability of the material means it will be very useful once we've moved onto the stroller part of the pram.
It's ok, could be much better

I bought this for an os trip to keep the swift safe. I found it easy to use but the design could be much better. I will recommend it only for the fact that there is nothing else comparable on the market.
It is well known that baggage handlers can be rough at the best of times so I wanted a bag to protect the buggy. It did that, mostly. By the time I picked it up at the other end it had started to come loose and bits were at risk of falling out and getting lost.
One very easy fix for this design would be to get rid of the two drawstringed pockets at each end and just do one big one for the whole bag ensuring everything is in under the "inner bag" and the drawstring can be pulled tight over all of it then the rest of the bag done up securely over the top as usual.
If you buy this bag I suggest an additiona luggage strap to add an extra layer to hold it all together.
Some positives, you can sneak much more in there with the buggy which helps with the luggage allowance. It rolls up and stores away nice and compact.
Useful to keep items from being scratched x

We originally bought this bag for travelling with our Swift. The buggy fitted in well and we secreted in extras such as blankets and nappies. We liked how the bag rolls into a tube to carry when not in use, and it conveniently fitted over the buggy handle, allowing us to take our buggy through the airport to check in prior to packing it in the bag. With two children we upgraded to a duet, but I found it really didn't fit well in this bag, so picked up a MB black travel bag instead - which is much easier to use. We now use this to keep our car seat safe when travelling - we managed to fit in two! Bonus when flying with EasyJet :) negs - lack of pockets that you find in the old black travel bags. The red material inside is flimsy and vulnerable to damage when exposed.
Not big enough and badly designed

Bought this bag for the terrain. It wasn't bit enough which meant that the bag got damaged after one quick use. The handle is flimsy and it's really hard to pull along on its wheels. A waste of money.
Well designed and very useful

Bought this for a long trip OS (for use with the Swift) it's well designed, except for the handle to pull along the bag once loaded - it's flimsy compared to the rest of the design and construction.
