    flying with convertible and front-facing car seats?

    We're flying several times this coming year (in the US) with our 4 and 8 year olds, who are RF in a Graco Extend2fit and in a 5-point harness in a Britax Pinnacle. We used to put the kids in the car seats on the plane, but they are too big for that now. After renting very sketchy car seats abroad last summer, I want to either bring our car seats or (yikes) buy new ones at our destinations. I prefer to bring the car seats since buying new ones will be so expensive, but don't want the car seats to get damaged if we check them in cloth bags.

    Does anyone know of hard-shell cases that would fit these huge car seats? I figure that even if hard cases are pricey, they are cheaper than buying new car seats, and we expect to use at least the Britax Pinnacle for several years with one or the other kid.

    Any other suggestions are very welcome! Thanks
