Rated 5 out of 5 by snbenjamin Awesome! Perfect for Flying on Southwest
I looked for a month to find a carrier that would fit my big fat 22lbs cat and fit under a Southwest Airlines seat. This one fit with no problems I had it in the laying position when it was under the seat and my cat laid comfortably in it and was still able to move just enough during flight. I just wish I would have bought 2 of them one for my smaller cat too. I almost didn't buy this carrier because it is a half inch larger on each of the dims for SWA but like I said I had no problems fitting it under a middle seat and I believe it would also fit under the window seat but it will not fit under the isle seat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SeaSquared Just what we were looking for.
We had trouble finding a carrier for our 18lb Miniature Schnauzer. He must be tall for his weight because he didn't fit in several that we tried. I like that this one can be unzipped at the sides for extra room and he can sit up and look out as we're wheeling him through the airport. We could not get him to go into the carriers that open on the sides. The only negative is that when I unzip the top so he can stick his head out, the zipper unzips itself if he pushes against it. I tied a cord through the zipper tabs and ran it through the carrier handle so it will be more secure. There are also two tethers inside the carrier that can attach to the dogs collar so they can't jump out. There is also a small storage pouch on each side of the carrier. The quality of the carrier is very good and I think that the price was very reasonable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kiki2559 Overall = good
Overall I like it. But not sure my 13 lb dog, who has a long torso, is crazy about it. Seems like she could use a little more room to lay down (she likes to curl when she sleeps). Also, it would be nice if the flap zippers locked so the flap could stay part way down w/o her being able to push the flap all the way down. And finally, the shoulder straps sometimes drag on the ground when I'm rolling the carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by redbon Was alittle skeptical about purchase but VERY Happy now!
Pet Gear I-GO2 Escort is a strong carrier. My 14 LBS Japanese Chin does not bow when I pick her up in it. The multiple handles fit every situation. I can carry it like a suitcase. Extend the handle & roll it like a suitcase. Sling it over my shoulder in the rain. It has backpack straps but my back is too old for that.
Best of all...When I unzip the front door...she jumps right in! She loves to ride in it.
My only negative comment would be I wish it was alittle longer. She can't lay down straight but she does curl up in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by poodlemom Substantial and excellent size for backpack, roller or over shoulder; expansion feature puts it above others we found.
The expandable sides solved my problem with squeezing oversize toy poodle into small under-seat pet carrier; at 11.5 lb and 19 inches long when resting, he's too big for most small-spec roller carriers; in this carrier, he's happy to stand when rolling, and happy to lie down when I have to put the carrier under smaller plane seat!
Had already purchased another one but this was far superior.

Great carrier, seems decently made. I would totally recommend it to a friend. The only downside is when you lay it flat horizontally it's very lumpy from the frame. Just needs some added cushion or a towel for puppy sleeping. But I'm very happy:)

Rated 4 out of 5 by WenDeeJay Well made
I really like the bag; roomier than I expected as my dog (Schnoodle) is at the top end of the weight limit. It is light weight and she fits in fine.
We are testing it out over the Thanksgiving holiday in anticipation of flying at Christmas. I may want to add more after that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Thunder Spacious! A lucky pet gets this transportation
I like almost everything about this product. I would buy it again because I have not found anything better. The two issues I have: when I roll it there is no place to put the backpack straps to keep them from dragging. Also, the included directions were unclear to me and I was unable to figure out how to utilize the long reinforcement strip of material that was included with the bag. I'm currently using it without this--which seems fine (my pet is quite small).
