Pet Carrier - SturdiBag Zebra
BRAND NEW stylish zebra print from the pet carrier that has been protecting traveling pets for years. The SturdiBag carrier is one of the best choices for airline in-cabin travel for those pet owners with dogs or cats that range up to 18" long (tip of nose to base of tail) and 12" high (top of head to ground). This pet carrier is weather proof, has a well-secured washable pillow, toy storage pocket and a padded shoulder pad. It is roomy for your pet, light for you to carry, and can handle up to 30 pounds of weight.
Here is how it works - The bag has flexible fiberglass ribbing (the kind used in camping tents) that allows the carrier to "squish" down enough for you to get it far enough under the seat during takeoff and landing so that the stewardess will leave you alone. Then, during the flight, just pull it out and it pops up like a little tent, to give your pet extra room. Conforms to the rules for carry on baggage.
This is a wonderful carrier, resembling a miniature camping tent. While it is truly sturdy as the name implies, it is also lightweight - a real plus when traveling, showing, or even taking a cat or dog to the vet. It is easy to maneuver around the confines of the Boeing 727 passenger cabin. With either the shoulder strap or the handle, the occupied carrier can be easely lifted to avoid bumping passengers.
The zippers are easy to close with one hand. Two mesh windows on top of the carrier and on the two end panels offer plenty of ventilation. When closed, the carrier is pretty much weatherproof. The zippered floor panel contains a durable foam-core floor that can be removed and replaced; it can also hold a heat or ice pack if necessary. That same compartment is roomy enough to store show curtains or a towel or two, and a small end pocket would be nice for treats, or a small bit of food or some paper towels.
This best pet carrier has won multiple Choice Awards with both Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy magazines as well as recommendations from Schools of Veterinary Medicine. It is widely used by pet breeders and those in the show industry who travel with their pets often. You will not be disappointed with the quality of this carrier. As it is a flexible carrier, it affords the possibility of fitting in a space that is less than the 12" height of the pet carrier.
Available in large size only.
Here are some of the great features of this pet carrier:
Oftentimes the airlines will give you recommended sizes for in-cabin pet carriers. Remember that the measurements they provide are for rigid carriers that do not compress. They do not provide measurements for soft sided pet carriers although they are accepted.
