Good quality and not to heavy.
Our cat loves it!

Jessica Hanson
Great buy

My sister's cat really enjoyed adventuring in her backpack. She was large and fit comfortably.

Sharon Eldridge
Perfect for my plus size tabby who wants to see and smell the outside world!

This backpack has been great! My cat acts like he hates getting in it (every time, even though I never take him to the vet or anything in it, just nature walks in the neighborhood) but once we're outside, his head is poking out the top flap and he is smelling the world and loving it. He is not the biggest cat out there (maybe 12 lbs now), but he is hefty and takes up space, so this backpack gives him enough room to sit, stand, and even curl up (if he hears a riding mower or something). He only likes to face front, so I have pretty much only ever worn this backpack backwards, but the ergonomics of it, including the straps, are great for that.

The straps are strong and think. You definitely need to be ready to adjust it for your height, though; when I first put it on, on my back, it cut into my hips and was painful. Adjusting the straps (and, of course, wearing it backwards(!)), resolved that. It also has handy, deep side pockets, into which I can slide my phone or keys and they travel securely. Very happy with this pack.

Also, for what it's worth, the furry fabric pad cleans up well; I found that out the hard way when I gave my other cat a test drive in the pack, and she pooped in it. :( And I just figured out the other day that the clip in the upper part of the interior of the bag is to hold the top mesh flap, if you want to roll it back. That made things so much easier! They seem to have been really thoughtful in the design of this bag, which I so appreciate!

Absolut zufrieden. Unsere Katzen sind glücklich. Miau

Absolutely Amazing

I have a 17 pounder and he has plenty of space to turn around and even nap in it. I also have the travel cat harness that clips right into perfectly so my cat can pop put their head. It has plenty of ventilation too. Definitely wort the money.
