I am medium built 35 year old Mum. Went on an 18 hrs flight with my 3 year old daughter with this bag, where we had to change planes and walk a lot in the terminals.
This bag looks great. In practise however, is a different story.
When you actually have a child on top and you are trying to pull it, there are no rests for her feet so the child needs to hold their legs up. Also the bike is a bit small for a 3 year old, and the fact that they can steer the handle is a bit of an issue - > if you turn to one side and the child is steering to the opposite side it will tip over with your child on it.
It is difficult for a 3 year olf to understand that they can only steer toward the side you are turning, and as a result is your child falling over over and over again, making the journey a bit of a headache. Up until we gave up and told my little one to not sit on it and just walk next to me. After a while I had my three year old on my arms, my own hand lougage in one arm, and her skooter in my other arm!
I don't know how I managed.
This bag would benefit from having swirl wheels instead. and would have bee great if they had a foot rest, also if the bag was ever so slightly taller.
I would in that case not really mind the weight.
I hope this helps.
