Does my cat look adorable in this backpack? Ridiculously so. Does she attract attention by how cute and visible she is? Yep! But Kota has had a catpack (as I call them) before and she doesn't love this one like she loved the last. True to other reviews, the plastic does indeed make for a hot inside. It's 73�� out and I took her for a less than 10 minute bike ride and when I opened it up to let her out, I could feel the extra heat inside ? I felt bad. And any kind of bumps bump her against the hard plastic. (Unlike her previous one which was all mesh on the front and sides.) Also, I thought i saw that this would fit up to 13lb cats. Kota is 11lbs and when it's in "backpack" mode, she has just enough room to sit or lay down (and the transition between is kinda tough.) Just our two cents. Different climate, different cat, maybe it'd work better
Overall this is a sturdy and comfy carrier for my cat, Duncan. Duncan loves this carrier. We can bring him everywhere.
Minor callouts: Upon receiving the bag, it had a strong plastic smell. Had to let it air out a bit. The plastic dome appears as of it could scratch easily so have to make sure you open it in carpet or soft surface when placing pet inside. I would have liked if the material was a bit lighter. I feel the weight of the bag with out the pet is pretty heavy. The straps are over engineered.
I LOVE this carrier. We travel in our RV quite a bit and this is a great carrier for my daughter to bring her BFF with her. The cat doesn't mind getting inside and never fits us like other carriers. In fact, we have two cats and I found them in the closet playing inside the carrier. I don't regret this purchase at all.
I use this while going to vet and while taking my cat to park (riding my bicycle). My indoor cat feels less nervous while outside. I just added soft padding so he feels more comfortable when the ride is bouncy.
So far enjoying the product. It is exactly as described. Only change I would like, once the netted walk way is open wish the zipper part that allows the cat from bubble area to netted area was on the side of the netted area. I still give it a thumbs up.

Unlike a lot of reviewers, I received mine in good condition. But it's way too flimsy for me being comfortable enough to transport a cat. It's big though. I was hoping to bring this to the park and let the cat out. But, no way would I feel okay putting a cat in here beyond a minute or two. If there were a sturdier and heavier version. I would buy in a heartbeat.
My cat wasn't so sure about it but he loves it. Light weight. He's comfortable. Love how it extends as well
It��s just like I expected. I ordered the black one with the expanding back. It creates a lot more room for my cats. They both can��t fit in just the backpack part at once but they love to take turns sitting and sleeping in it. My cats are about 6-7 pounds for reference.
Be cautious because the plastic dome scuffs easily.
Love it! Super recommend for vet visits, plane and shopping strolling My cat love it!!!
I got 2 of these for my cats so I can get them outdoors w me. I got the expander one and the regular one for the kitten. My one senior cat LOVED it and at one point had his paw outside the little port hole lol! My kitten did not like the pouch at all and cried the whole way. Welp, one less ��hiker��.
