Reviewers also raved about its versatility, highlighting the spacious compartment that ‘accommodates different-sized items’ and noting that it folded for easy storage. They especially liked it for road trips, saying it was easy to toss in the trunk.”

The experts considered attributes that are most important when it comes to family travel, such as convenience, value, service, quality, safety, innovation, inclusion and more.
