Pretty Decent Carrier
athina from arlington, MA– Verified Buyer
I bought 2 of these as emergency situation carriers for my 2 average size cats (11 pounds and 13 pounds). These are good quality thick canvas carriers and the side paneling is almost a hard plastic rather than a mesh (mesh scares me because cats on a mission can surely rip through it) so I feel more than confident that the cats won't be able to escape. Both the back and front of the carriers are double zippered - again I've heard horror stories of cats pawing at the zippers and getting them open, so being a little paranoid, I used luggage locks to secure the zippers closed on the back end. The only negative is that these could be a little longer. My cats fit, but it's definitely a cozy fit, so these are great for back up purposes, but I wouldn't recommend for long trips or regular use unless you have a smaller cat.
Really fun for both of us!

I purchased this backpack carrier for my indoor cat, soon to take her first flight. Although we haven't yet used it for travel we have been acclimating to it by taking short outdoor walks (much to the amusement of my friends and neighbors). My cat weighs 6 lbs., fits perfectly, is able to move around and change positions, and much to my surprise seems quite content. The roll down flap is a great way to add a sense of security and I'm sure we'll use it while traveling. The fact that the carrier converts easily from being carried by the handle, shoulder strap, or backpack straps was a definite factor in making this purchase. It is a well thought-out carrier and we can't wait to fly! The only thing that might possibly be missing is a compartment to carry snacks and a small food/water dish; however, never having traveled with a pet I'm not sure how security would handle such an addition. I've also "slip-covered" the bottom with a soft fabric that can be removed for laundering.
Purrfect Pet Carrier for air traveling
trofeegirl from Sacramento, CA– Verified Buyer
My cat and I flew from Fla to CA. w/ 2 plane changes. She loved being able to see all around her, and close to me as I wore it comfortably as the backpack, which provided free hands for me. She fit perfect under the seat in front of me, and with the 1/2 down zipper at the end I was able to pet her during the flight. Product material high quality and sturdy. [...] We also use it as a carrier for car trips. Great product!
Very good but lacks hip belt.
Charles Frey from Ashburn, VA
The Prefer Pets Backpack Carrier is very good, with one drawback; it lacks a hip belt, which would provide load support and prevent it from slipping off one's shoulders. Other than that, the design is perfect. It has a comfortable base with ample cushioning and support for my 6 lb cat who can stand up and lie down inside. In addition, the mesh design enables her to enjoy a 270 degree view and gentle breeze during our daily walk.

I got this carrier incase of a natural emergency where i would need to leave my house with my cat. Now, I have very large cats and they fit in this bag but they are kinds smoosehd.In a last minute emergency it would work and its nice that they can ride on your back.You would not be able to carry anything else tho beside your animal. But the bag works great and the quality that it is made out of would last a long time.
Airline Dog Carrier
Glenda from Fort Myers Beach, FL– Verified Buyer
This product is awesome. It is high quality and made transporting my Bischon-FriseMalteese trouble free. It fit under the seat (flew on an air bus) and Petey had the room he needed to be comfortable.
I Love this carrier
MV the neighborhood walker from Traverse City, Michigan– Verified Buyer
This is a great Carrier. It is constructed very well. My little 5 lb Pom, Angel gets very excited when she see it. I set the carrier on the floor she runs inside and lies down waiting to go. It makkes a good small carrier. I use it mostly as a backpack, because Angel cannot walk very far on her own. It does not have any pockets, so I just added a little waist pack to the handle to hold her leash etc.. Works perfect!
Really nice pet carrier!
E. from Illinois
The pet carrier is really nice! You can carry it on your shoulder or your back. I have two cats so it makes it easier to carry this carrier on my back so I have two hands free to carry the other.
good carrier for walking puppy
KG from KC– Verified Buyer
Well made carrier to take puppy or small dog on walk. It has removable straps to carry dog as backpack. I miss a snap pouch to carry leash and halter or something else if I want.
Susan from Brooklyn, NY– Verified Buyer
Nice size but the bottom mat kept moving during the trip. I had to keep adjusting it for my cat. Otherwise, it is nice and big and sturdy.
