    Working out well

    By Andy on Jan 7, 2021

    We use this for our 12 lb chihuahua mix. For reference, I am 5'11", 190 lb, my wife is 5'4", 120 lb. Overall: I feel like I got what I paid for with this carrier. It was priced on the lower end of the Chewy choices. I'm pleased. Our use: We both wear it, sometimes we're together, sometimes alone We use this for our 12 lb chihuahua mix. For reference, I am 5'11", 190 lb, my wife is 5'4", 120 lb. Overall: I feel like I got what I paid for with this carrier. It was priced on the lower end of the Chewy choices. I'm pleased. Our use: We both wear it, sometimes we're together, sometimes alone, but neither of us find it difficult to manage on our own. Our dog is old and not thrilled with cold weather, but we're in Maine, so we bought the pack for winter trail walks. Once he's clearly "done" walking the trail, we put him in with a thin blanket and a disposable hand warmer pack, and he seems very cozy. Even with the added blanket, he fits comfortably in a wrapped sitting/leaning position (I take off his little coat and booties so he can move a bit). He's quite content, looking out the mesh windows, swaying with our gait. On the drive home he typically chooses to stay inside, despite unzipped door, with the pack resting upright on back seat; seems really cozy. Basic manufacturing quality: Pretty good - Overall sturdy feel, zippers appropriately sized, seams and stitching are tight, materials seem likely to hold up well. My dog doesn't scratch at the mesh, if he did, over time it might tear, but it seems strong. Design: Pretty good - there are multiple zippered openings to access the compartment, which is proving convenient for loading, unloading, or accessing in use (also allows him to use it passively on the floor as a cozy, secure bed). Rubber feet allow it to stand erect for loading upright on flat ground or a bench. The pockets are small and tight, but hold a poop bag, treats, etc. Negatives: The shoulder strap padding is not substantial, and the hip belt has no pad at all, and fits across my belly not my waist. So comfort-wise, weight isn't transferred smartly, not great for the lower back, but if you snug it up tight, not bad. The strap clasps are not easy to manipulate, and the sternum strap is undersized and located oddly, such that it sits over my very upper sternum. Neither of the straps have enough length for a hefty person. I'm not sure I'd be as happy wearing this in the summer, without my bulky coat on, but it would work. … more

    Great price for a backpack, needs more handles

    By thesoundlady on Sep 1, 2020

    It's a really great backpack carrier, especially for the price. I love that it has proper backpack straps, especially if you're going to be walking with it a lot, and with a pet that has some weight to them. I feel like it could use a better way to pick it up when you're not using it as a backpack It's a really great backpack carrier, especially for the price. I love that it has proper backpack straps, especially if you're going to be walking with it a lot, and with a pet that has some weight to them. I feel like it could use a better way to pick it up when you're not using it as a backpack and just need to carry it to the car, or into the vets office, etc. There's one handle on the top, but it really needs two longer ones to be able to transport in that way. … more
