Trunki BoostApak Travel Backpack Booster Seat
The car booster seat that doubles as a backpack!
With BoostApak, you'll always have a car booster seat with you. BoostApak is a spacious hand luggage-approved rucksack that doubles as a booster seat, making it ideal for car-pooling, taxis, and holidays.
Is BoostApak suitable for hand luggage?
In the vast majority of cases, BoostApak is suitable for hand luggage, but please check with your airline before travelling.
The law requires all children under 12 years old or 135 cm in height to use a booster seat, so it's important to always have one with you. BoostApak's handy features make it an ideal solution.
1. Fold-out seatbelt guides: With quick-release button to fold back down.
2. Wipe-clean removable cover: Makes cleaning easy after a messy journey.
3. Spacious 8-litre capacity: Plenty of room for travel essentials.
4. Hard plastic internal shell: Protects the contents of your backpack.
5. Ergonomic back padding: To encourage better posture and protect growing spines.
6. Seatbelt adjuster: Customise the strap height to fit your child as they grow, ensuring maximum safety.
7. High-visibility reflective trim: So you or your child can be seen in the dark.
8. ID tag: To make sure your BoostApak never gets lost.

We read all the reviews and decided to order one. It arrived very quickly and I am very impressed with the item.
It is very neat, not too bulky, looks good and feels sturdy enough to be sat on which I was a bit dubious about.
The backpack area is large enough to carry a few toys, games, snacks andd drinks etc for the flight.
I'd read a few reviews about the handles being badly stitched on and so I've pulled them about and they seem to be securely attached.
I'd also read that the seatbelt adjuster only sits on one side of the seat so you can only have the chair in one position of the car but this is incorrect, the seatbelt adjuster is detachable and can be used on either side of the seat, another great little touch.
The side arms click in and out of place and again are sturdy.
My only slight criticism is the seat itself is quite hard so for my little one's 'derriere' I'll be purchasing a small cushion for the long drives we're having to do in America.
All in all though, a fabulous idea and I'm extremely happy with this product, I would certainly recommend.
It's a great product and I would be happy to buy it again, but only once this issue has been addressed.
EDIT: Just to add, within 48 hours of contacting Trunki, i was holding a replacement cover (the cover comes off the hard shell). It has yet to be tested but Trunki's customer service is spot on, fast, helpful and very pleasant to deal with.
It is quite heavy on its own (that's because you want it to be sturdy), and since you probably don't expect a very little one to carry your allowed 7kg of hand luggage in there, you might be happy to know that although it's not massive, snacks, a few colouring books and beloved comforters and a water bottle will definitely find their spot in there.
The mesh pocket inside could do with being a single pocket, not a skinny one you can only keep the instructions in and a larger one. The instructions could be printed onto the fabric itself, on the opposite side, save the trees, people, save the trees!
The mesh on the inside of the straps do prevent the bag from slipping, however, it is painful when the children are wearing tank tops, and to be honest, when you're traveling and the kids start kicking up a fuss about that when you're already carrying the equivalent of a 49ft container in your hand luggage, you have your laptop bag over your shoulder, your boarding passes and passports between your teeth, your handbag around your neck, and the security guys ask you to remove your shoes, and stick your electronics in the tray for the scanner, you may want to curse at those lovely Trunky people... But then you remember what it was like to get a Britax birth to 18kg seat THROUGH the scanner itself, and you're ready to hang those Boostapaks around your big toe instead of telling the kids to JUST GET ON WITH IT!!
Do get one. It's a great thing to have.
Edit: one year on a strap broke. I had to sew it back on, do watch out. Still love them!

An item can be for one purpose only; either a rucksack or booster seat. I am afraid this one is only half good. Read morePublished 9 days ago by dvg
