This is a surprisingly well-made and appealing carrier, but I can’t recommend it. Here’s what I liked: It’s sturdily-constructed of heavyweight material, and the zippers are solid and function well. The mesh panels are of good-quality mesh, and they’re huge — no problem with ventilation in this carrier. The zipper runs all the way around the front sides and top panel, so that when the bag is completely unzipped, it can function as a comfortable travel bed.
Here’s what I didn’t like: This carrier does not allow you to see your dog from above, which is the view you’ll most often have of her as you’re traveling. Please also note that to reach your dog during travel, you’ll have to position the main zipper just so — what looks like an access zipper on the top is really just a pocket in the carrier’s lid. The deal breaker for me, though, is that this carrier (20Lx11Wx11H) is simply too large to work as an in-cabin carrier. It’s much larger than the official U.S. airline maximums, but even if you’re willing to push those limits, in my experience, 19 inches is as wide as a carrier can be and still fit under an airplane seat.
