Great for my boy!

I've had the backpack now for a couple months, and so far it has beena great fit! I bought this for my 12lbs cat Nimbus because other backpacks I had bought seemed to collapse under his weight, causing him to have less space. This design has help up really well, giving him plenty of room. I rarely use the bubble or screen option, since Nimbus is content to ride along and doesn't jump out. this allows him to stick his head out the hole on the side as well as look out over my shoulder. I haven't tried the bubble yet, but the screen has been fairly easy to put back on as needed. Though sometimes it takes a couple tries for it to thread correctly so that it screws on. I do not use the bungee clip in the bag because it is too tight and doesn't allow him to lay down. Instead, I keep his leash hooked to his harness. At first, the backpack was too stiff and was uncomfortable on my back. But after about a month of wearing, it broke in a bit (making it much more comfortable). After ordering, it took about a week or so to arrive. Overall, Nimbus and I are thrilled with it and would definitely recommend!

Excellent for larger cats

I've been looking for a bag that wouldn't be too small for my big guy who's 25lbs Maine Coon x Ragdoll. Ordered this bag and it came so fast. Really well made, it took him a couple tries to get used to it, now he loves it. I put a blanket in the bottom of my bag and props him up enough to look around. Highly recommend.

Brady loves it!!

My cat hates carriers or being put in anything, but with this backpack it’s something about it he likes, he will sleep in there and randomly go in there.. it’s crazy but he just loves it, I’m so glad I bought this!

Best Cat Travel bag

Locate in Australia, I have two ragdolls, one is 5.6kg & other one is 4.4kg. They love to adventure outside world so I always take them to bushwalk. This travel bag meets everything that I need. Even carry with two large cats it won’t hurt my back. Love it!

love it!

ive been searching for a backpack i can use to carry around my cat for a while now, and most of them are too small for my cat (a male ragdoll). this one is perfect for him and incredibly well made. it’s sturdy, and even though it’s big, it’s really light to carry even with him in it.
