Can this carrier be taken on a plane, and fit under the seat?
Answer by ChewyNov 11, 2019
While this model fits many airline regulations, we always encourage pet parents to contact the airline they're traveling with to confirm the approved size carrier for their flight specifically.

Can you insert pet from the top?
Answer by ChewyOct 24, 2019
This soft sided carrier doesn't offer top entry access.

Can you please clarify the dimensions? 17” is obviously the length. For the 9x12... is the 9” height or width?
Answer by ChewyOct 11, 2019
The 17-inch carrier measures 17 x 9 x 12 inches and the 19-inch carrier measures 19 x 10 x 13 inches. The dimensions are listed as L x W x H.

I see that the carrier comes with a plush bed on the bottom, but is the actual bottom of the carrier hard plastic or soft fabric?
Answer by ChewyMay 13, 2020
This carrier bag has an insertable hard support board that keeps the carrier in good shape and a removable plush bed to provide comfort for your pet.

disappointed… not sturdy

My cat Annie does not like to travel in this carrier bag at all. I just got back from the vet and she yowled so much the whole way there and back. She kept scratching at the carrier trying to get out and when I opened a little tiny whole for her to get some air, she easily managed to unzip the pocket enough to break out. It is not sturdy at all and as other reviewers mentioned, totally collapsed in on Annie. I was so worried she couldn’t breathe in there. Looking at her inside this carrier makes ME feel claustrophobic. I give it 2 stars because it had the potential to be a good carrier, but unfortunately it’s just not. The blue is a pretty color. I like all the pockets. The bottom inside also looks softer in the pictures than it actually is. It is attached to the bottom with only a tiny piece of Velcro, so it doesn’t stay on well. Hopefully I will be able to return it or exchange it for a better one.

Disappointed in Connecticut

This carrier runs a lot smaller than described. I have all larger size cats and unless they are sick when I’m bringing them to the vet and willing to lay down and sleep this carrier won’t work. I’m disappointed because I am disabled and it seemed like the ideal item to solve my problem, but my poor kitties last moments before having to cross the rainbow bridge were not comfortable ones as I had wanted for both of us. He just laid on his back and starred up at the sky because there wasn’t much room. Also, you need more than one insertable bottom. If they have an accident in the carrier and you need to remove it to clean & wash it, you have no sturdy bottom which presents another problem. Chewy you need to stop selling this carrier and get one that will fit you customers needs and complaints. We depend on you and the chewy name to carry only the best of the best. Thamk you.

Keeping but adding to

Very nice carrier very well-made. However, like so many others have reported, this collapses on my cat. Whether I put the bottom part in or not. Especially when unzipped on one side. I bought a cheap one years ago that had a bar covered with the same material as on the bottom that fit into fabric openings on the top. Why this could not have been added to prevent it from collapsing is beyond meat. Getting my sewing needle out because otherwise it is very nice. A bit smaller than I like. But it helps him feel safe so since we only travel back-and-forth to the vet it will do.

Very Nice Travel Carrier

We are very pleased with the EliteField travel carrier. It is well made, sturdy and has several, helpful features. Our 13lbs Dachshund just fits into it and we have started training him to go into it. So far, so good..... I think he feels snug, if a little unsure, but can see out well and chew on his toys! First trip is in a few days, so we are glad to have this to help out. The carrier came right on schedule and the purchase through Chewy was very smooth.

Appears well made but design flaws make it unusable

Unfortunately I can't get either of my cats to get comfortable in this. The fabric looks sturdy & the firm bottom panel appears to give support when toting. But there are deal-breaker problems: 1) the bag comes folded during shipment & those creases don't come out, so the 2 ends never get pushed out fully & are caved in right into their faces (see pics). So they endlessly turn trying get themselves some room. 2) There is only mesh on the top half of the bag, so if they do lay down they have canvas right in front of their faces so they just stand up again. If you have smaller cats that like to hide then this might work for you but my medium sized cats hate this.

So-So, just too small for my needs.

Too small for a growing cat. Otherwise the product was of very good quality. I hope they have the same product in a bigger size. I would buy it.

My poor cat

This carrier likes to collapse on itself with my cat inside whenever I pick it up. It functions, technically, but I'd rather use my older cat carrier.

Cute carrier!

This carrier met all my expectations. Sturdy, functional and great looking as well! My kitty loves to lay in there even while not traveling. Live the pockets for storage. Highly recommended!

Perfect carrier for short trips or if headed to the vet

Perfect, my cat went right in! Perfect size , 1 review said it collapsed on there cat, my experience as long as you put the base in it won't collapse. Fast shipping ordered on Friday night had on Sunday morning. I would recommend this carrier for vet appointments and short travel .I would not recommend for a long trip

Not the best

I really wanted to like this bag but with the way it collapses in on itself even without my cat in it is not ideal. With my cat in it the weight puts more pressure down on the bag which causes the sides of the bag to collapse inward. There needs to be more reinforcement on the sides and the bottom of the bag. I picked the light blue and it is really pretty and the pockets are great but the bag itself doesn't work for us. Now that I have used it I'm not sure if i can return it or not.
