5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent design, works perfectly. 21 Sep 2011
Colour Name:Brown/Beige
I bought this for Sally, my patterdale terrier (7kg) so she can come with me on a horse riding day for my sisters birthday. Just the thing I needed!

It arrived flat packed in a handy zip up bag, simply unfold it and zip the sides in place to use, goes back just as easily. The sides and base are reinforced so the bag holds it's shape excellently and feels robust. There is a side flap as well as the flap on top so you have a choice of entrances/exits. As well as the shoulder straps there are carrier handles on the top so this can be used as a shoulder bag too. The clip for her collar to make sure she can't jump out is adjustable which I thought was a nice touch. There is also a mobile phone pocket on one of the straps and a couple of zip pockets on the front - very handy.

You do need to have the shoulder straps short to ensure the base is level (otherwise it digs into your back), but the straps are wide and padded and the strap connecting the shoulder straps does an excellent job at keeping everything where it should be. I have narrow shoulders so I was a bit concerned after reading some of the comments about wide shoulder straps, but when all the straps are adjusted properly the bag feels really sturdy and comfy.

Sally is light but has long legs (she is 14" at the shoulder)so she only just fits in this. It's fine as she loves being carried around and rests her head on my shoulder when she is in the bag! If she was fidgety I would not feel she was safe in it as she can easily step out, so please take into account your dog's temperament when buying this if they are a similar size. My smaller terrier is 9" at the shoulder and fits in it perfectly, I could zip the top up if needed so she would be safe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good value for money 2 April 2010
Colour Name:Brown/Beige
I found this bag to be very well made with good ventilation and strong zips. My cat is nearly 6 kilos and he fits in it no problem with room to turn round at a squeeze, but with this kind of bag you do not want the animal moving around much so it is a good size and my cat seems to enjoy the experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat backpack 28 Aug 2011
Colour Name:Black/Blue|Verified Purchase
Used this for a 4.5kg cat. He fitted in OK although turning around was a bit of a squeeze and certainly no way he could stand up. Being a shy cat he was happy that he could curl up at one end and still see out the mesh at the other. Since he didn't want to escape he didn't really test the strength of the mesh with his claws; if he was really determined he might do some damage (if testing inside the house he would probably do this but wanting to be safe outside he decided to stay put).

It was comfortable enough to carry this on the back - my wife did most of the carrying ;-) (I was using a different carrier for our other cat). She didn't complain about the straps being too far apart as others have done. If adjusted they seem fine.

Quite happy with this for occasional use to get cats to the vet or on the bus/train.

3.0 out of 5 stars Backpack 6 July 2010
By Jake
Colour Name:Brown/Beige
The item was well made, but the straps did not stay at the length required and were in danger of opening altogether, which would not be good with a small dog or cat in the back pack. The straps were also too widely spaced and wouldnt stay on my shoulders. With design modifiacation I think this would be a good product.

Colour Name:Brown/Beige|Verified Purchase
Fantastic bag, keeps kitty safe and secure on my back. Went for a 3 hour train journey and she was absolutely fine. Much better than her usual bulky travel box, both for me and her. 4 stars because, for whatever reason, on the way back she was irritated and chewed some of the linining in the bag and made a slight rip/hole in the side, which I've since sewn up. Maybe produce future bags with a stronger material?

No problems regarding shoulder strap spacing, I'm not exactly what you'd call wide or broad shouldered, but I managed just fine using the middle strap which tightens both shoulder straps together and it worked perfectly fine.

On the whole, would defo recommend as a way to port kitty around!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good compact bag 15 Jan 2010
Colour Name:Black/Blue
It's a good size and folds up very flat. Perfect for what we wanted - the only slight criticism would be that the zip's a little stiff but it is new so maybe this will get easier in time.

4.0 out of 5 stars good product - but the cat isn't impressed 30 Sep 2013
Colour Name:Black/Blue|Verified Purchase
I think this will do the job. I am taking the cat on the plane with me and because of the regulations the carrier can be only a sertain hight. This is the only carrier that is the correct 21cm high.
the measurements I got from the airline are so weird that I thought I would have get a bag specially made as they were


it was slightly hard to find anything that size but this fits in. The cat wont be happy as she wont be able to stretch out in the bag. but no can do.

hope she wont scratch her way out of it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog rucksack - perfect 17 Nov 2013
By David
Colour Name:Brown/Beige|Verified Purchase
I don't write many reviews but had to for this little gem. It is really good, with lots of zip openings to get doggy in or out or to leave his little head poking out if he is a nosey little chap like my Yorkie. He can see out of the mesh panels OK so I left him zipped in until he got used to it with no worry about him falling out. There is a tether fitted inside to attach to his lead / harness anyway. My dog is 7kg, quite a big Yorkie and he fits in quite comfortably, can lie down or sit up. The rucksack is excellent quality, strong and well thought out, all the things I like on a rucksack (I am a keen hill walker so have a few normal good name rucksacks). The shoulder straps are well padded with an extra straps across the front and to top of bag that provide great stability so doggy is always on the level. Well done Trixie (manufacturers).
PS Like other people I did notice the shoulder straps slipping off towards the outside of my shoulders so I just did what I do with other rucksacks - just tied a spare boot lace across my chest holding them closer together, no problem.
