I was looking for an airline appropriate travel carrier for my 8.5 pound fur buddy when I came across this one from Kopeks. I don't own anything from this company, so I read the reviews and researched many options before buying. I liked the idea of a carrier on wheels with an extendable handle for long walks to the gates, but my buddy also wants to be close to me and the backpack option works great for that as well. The size is absolutely perfect for him to stand and look out when I open the zipper, or to sit or lay down when I lay it on its side under the seat in front of me. He and I LOVE that he can see me through the mesh front and sides, rather than enclosed in a carrier with little holes or a metal grid front gate. He doesn't look or feel trapped and there is abundant ventilation. I can easily reach in and pet him and give him love without worrying about him "escaping" as he can be attached to the tether cord provided inside the carrier. The super soft sherpa lining covers the floor and back, which is perfect for his comfort in any position. I am 5'7" and slim, and the pack fits me well. The shoulder straps are comfortable to wear and adjustable. The wheels and metal frame do not bother my hips or back, and I love that it does not collapse on him when I set it down on the floor like other pet travel bags or totes. I chose the black carrier as my guy is dark, and I am very happy with my choice. The material appears water and stain resistant, which is a huge plus for travel. The pockets are perfect to carry small items such as extra water, treats, potty bags, ID, etc. This is an all-around winner for me and my fur best friend. Thank you for a great product! :)
The photo makes the interior space seem much bigger than it is. I wanted it for my two small dogs. I had to cram them in. It did not function the way I wanted to.
Perfect fit for my 12 pounds Yorkie mix. She fits in good she can even stick her head out the top.
Where is my refund? I have returned the item. when will I get my refund please? I don't know what else you want me to type?
Rated before actual use carrying a cat, not sure this will work as the only carrier. As a backpack, I would only use for short trips, frame is longer than my short torso and hits my bum. I have not placed the largest cat inside yet; certain I will need to keep a larger carrier as well. There is no cover, attached or otherwise, for skittish animals. There are plastic clips hanging inside and outside the carrier to secure rolled flaps that I carefully cut out, as I will not be leaving the carrier open and they just hang inside the small interior space. The “leash” with clip sewn inside on an elastic base does not impress; I cut it out, as the cats do not have harnesses and the “leash” just hangs inside. Sherpa lining is removable (Velcro) for spot cleaning. I am hesitant to use this carrier with a sedated animal, especially with an e-collar, as there is little to no room to lie down or move while in transit.
My cat does not fit in it, he does not want to get on it and is very small to put him in.
I bought this hoping to fit my larger puppy inside. He's 17 pounds and he'll eventually be too large to travel in the cabin, but I figured for this trip, I could make it work. This carrier is much smaller when I measured it. It is supposed to be 20x12x13, but it is actually 17x8x12. If you have a small dog, it is super nice and would probably be great for travel. I would not recommend for a dog larger than maybe 12 pounds. I will be returning.
I've had this backpack less than a year and the straps have torn off making it useless for me. My cat loved being able to go for walks with my service dog and me, but now he's stuck at home. Really disappointed that a $60 cat carrier didn't even last a year.
I loved the carrier except ,my poodle - yorkie mix cant use it. I thought you could put the dog in easily but that center bar makes loading very difficuly and the way the top slopes does not allow room for his head if sitting. Im giving it to my daughter for her Tiny dog (7 lbs). If you buy for a dog bigger then that, be waryof the measurements because of the construction.
Fred loves it, I love it. Bought it to travel cross country with my fur baby who hates carriers. I set it up and put it out for him to adapt to ahead of time, he loves it as his new cat bed. Hopefully he still loves it when he realizes he can be zipped into it and carried.
