great quality AND stylish!

kitties love it so much they even sleep in it

Amanda Pride
Perfect for anxious cat moms

I had stopped going for walks when we got our kittens because I felt guilty about leaving them alone in my free time. This backpack is helping me go on stupid walks for my stupid mental health. Highly recommend

Rachele Bates
Roomy carrier

Lots of options for our cat to look around and move around. Great quality!

Perfect for me and my adventure kitty!

I love the Navigator! It’s not only super spacious and sturdy for my very tall and long cat, but it is so comfortable for me to wear. I love the padding on the back, the buckles on the straps help take his weight off my back, and the pouch for a water bladder is a game changer!

Quality Comfort for Both Human & Feline

I was shocked at how quickly the training period was for my cat and this backpack. I left it out and open for a few days in the living room and he immediately warmed up to it - we've since moved on to a few days of in/out with treats. We've tested each of the zippered openings and he uses all of them well, but he seems most comfortable with the inner top opening. We've only had it a week or so and we're already taking walks around the neighborhood. I love the wallet feature in the side pocket that's large enough to also hold my phone and/or keys, and all of the straps (chest, waist and shoulders) are easily adjustable and generously support his weight on my back. The mesh is also very durable, which helps during his playful "zoomies". I can't speak highly enough of this backpack and feel so much more excited (less nervous!) about our future adventures together.
