PetEgo “Pod iLove”

Best suited for: Permanent bed, travel bed, car carrier, bike carrier
Also works for: Over the shoulder carrier, stroller (with Quadro Stroller frame)
Quality: ★★★★
Price: $$$$
Overall rating: ★★★★

There’s a lot to love about PetEgo’s Pod iLove, a round, domed carrier for the smallest pets. As always with PetEgo products, it’s sturdy and well-designed. Like the Sleepypod, it converts from your pet’s bed to a car carrier, but it also converts to a bike carrier and can be carried conveniently over your shoulder (unlike the Sleepypod, it has a contoured side that fits…

PetEgo “Pet Rolling Pack”

Best suited for: Backpack
Also works for: Car carrier
Quality: ★★★★
Price: $$$$
Overall rating: ★★★★

I love PetEgo’s products, but I’m disappointed by this one. It has great features: It rolls, it has an optional internal divider that allows two (tiny) dogs to share it, it expands with a zipped gusset to provide substantial additional space. It converts to a backpack. It has lots of mesh ventilation panels. These are all excellent things, and when you add in PetEgo’s quality design and workmanship, you’ve got a great carrier. At 9.5Hx21Lx15W, however,  it’s…

PetEgo “Pet at Work Travel System”

Best suited for: Backpack carrier, travel crate
Also works for:
Quality: ★★★★
Price: $$$$
Overall rating: ★★★★

This carrier starts out as a backpack, holding both your laptop and your small dog, and once you get to your destination, it converts to a small enclosed crate, complete with a padded floor.

Toy breeds will fit best in it, especially in the compact and standard configurations, but when the carrier is fully expanded (16Hx15Lx16W) even Chloe could fit in it. It comes in black and tan.

I own another PetEgo carrier, Chloe’s beloved messenger bag.…

PetEgo “Jet Set Carrier”

Best suited for: In-cabin airplane carrier (Small and Medium sizes only), motorbike carrier
Also works for: Over the shoulder carrier, short-term backpack, car carrier
Quality: ★★★★
Price: $$$$
Overall rating: ★★★★

PetEgo’s Jet Set Carrier, in the Small and Medium sizes, is well worth considering as an in-cabin carrier. The Small is 9.8Hx17.7Lx9W and the Medium is 10.6Hx19.7Lx9.8W — both are officially larger than the airlines’ maximum sizes, but they’re close enough that they’ll work, especially since they’re soft-sided and fairly flexible. The Large size (11.8Hx21.7Lx10.6W) is too long to work as an…

PetEgo “Contour Messenger Bag”

Best suited for: Stealth transport
Also works for: People avoiding puppy bling
Quality: ★★★★
Price: $$$$
Overall rating: ★★★★

Chloe’s messenger bag, the PetEgo Contour Messenger Black Label Bag, is a great stealth carrier. It comes in two sizes: Small (10.5Hx14Lx8W) and Large (13Hx20Lx10W). It also comes in a sporty orange-and-grey color combination, but I think the all-black option looks more like an computer bag and doesn’t highlight the mesh ventilation panels.

It has many good features, but the ones I care most about are the mesh “tower” and a small, zipped hatch in the top…
