Who knew this bag is required for the warranty to be valid?! Now WE do!
July 3, 2012
For those of you who fly a lot, and don't want to sacrifice comfort and stability with a lighter and more convenient umbrella stroller, this bag is a mandatory item, because the VISTA warranty is void if your stroller is damaged and it wasn't in this bag. Also, this bag is less expensive and ships for free from the AlbeeBaby website vs. the UppaBaby website (strange, but true) which made me love AlbeeBaby all the more.
So, the bag works. It's a bit bulky so you have to stash it under the stroller until you're at the gate. Once there, my daughter recommends you pack up the stroller in the bag (wheels must come off, but luckily that's a cinch with this stroller) just prior to lining up to board, as it is too difficult to manage with a baby at the bottom of the jet-way, but rolls easily once packed.
Pros:Damage Warranty is in force with this bag, so if you fly with your Vista, this bag is a mandatory purchase. Functional, priced reasonably on AB website, ships free.
Cons:Bulky, The boring black color. Must take stroller wheels off to pack.
