Pet Carrier - SturdiBag
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). The pet carrier is weather proof, has a well-secured washable pillow, toy storage pocket and leather hand-grip. It's available in black, red, pink, and tan colors. 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. All sizes conform 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.
Here are some of the great features of this pet carrier:
We suggest that your protect your SturdiBag carrier with a pet pad.
We recommend that you contact your airline and ask for seat clearances if you are considering the Extra Large size SturdiBag carrier. You will need a 20" clearance in width to accommodate the 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.
We would also suggest that you consider protecting your carrier with a quality pet pad. Our smallest size pet pads fit our pet carriers and provide protection against accidents from nervous pets.

Just ordered a small sturdibag for a trip to Puerto Rico. Our 6lb toy poodle loves it. It was very simple to assemble. It is a bit short in height for him because he has very long legs. The large would be better but we were afraid the airline would think it was too big-their maximum height for a soft carrier is 11 inches. But the pad is very soft and comfortable and he sleeps in it already. The carrier is so light to carry.
