This backpack is just the right size for travelling with small pets. The zippers are easy to zip up/unzip and the bottom is padded just enough to keep them comfortable. The straps do not hurt my shoulders. The material is lightweight, yet withstood the scratching my cat did trying to get out at first. I really like that she can see out of the top and sides in places.
This carrier has several points of entry, making vet visits easier. It also has plenty of pockets. It is sturdy and durable. Comfortable when worn/used as a backpack. Bonus points for the collapsible bowl. It is also airline-approved. I would purchase again. Definitely recommend it for gift-giving or shelter donations.
I bought this backpack because it wasn't the most expensive one and we weren't sure how the backpack would work with our dog, who is 15 pounds. Overall it was a good purchase because our dog loves being in the backpack. It's perfect for going on bike rides, and we've been able to take her into stores and museums with the backpack on, which is great so we don't have to leave her in a crate in a hotel room. It's also very useful if we're outside eating or whatever and want to keep her penned in so we don't have to monitor her. I will note that there isn't a reason to pay extra for all of the zipper entrances; we only ever open the top and our dog can just hop in and out or we pick her up. But as far as the cons of this particular backpack, it's not the most durable. The first week we had it, the strap that attaches the dog's harness to the backpack broke! Luckily I noticed it when we weren't actually using it, but this could have been a serious problem if we had been on a bike ride and our dog was able to jump out because the strap broke. I fixed it by tying it in a knot, but this was a big sign that the quality of this backpack wasn't the best. It's also taken on some major wear and tear in the couple of years that we have had it, and it's not the most comfortable to wear because of how the bottom part digs into your lower back. I'm glad we tried out a cheaper one just to see whether our dog liked the backpack, but I'll be purchasing something more durable now that I need to replace it.
