As most of you know, I’ve always been a fan of Sleepypod’s products. They do one thing and they do it well. Make perfect pet beds. Our first review was on the SleepyPod, and now they have the Sleepypod Air.
This carrier is more than your average carrier. It’s something that will revolutionize in-cabin pet travel. The Air adapts to your situation. It can be strapped to a pullman, stored under the seat, safely strapped into a seatbelt, or just carried. On top of that, it folds completely flat with just a flick of the wrist so when you’re not using it, it’s out of sight.
This carrier has air mesh that allow your pet to breathe a little easier on any journey, the heavy duty canvass makes for a lightweight, yet protective way to transport, and the handles and long shoulder strap make it simple for anyone to use. Side pockets are perfect for storing food, water and important papers, as well as a leash and harness, without adding excess bulk or detracting from space your pet needs.
Their patent pending folding system allows pets to travel in the largest space possible while the airplane is in the air, yet still allows for stowage under an airline seat during takeoff and landing. When the captain says you can recline your seat, rotate the Sleepypod Air so it is between your feet and expand the ends so both you and your little friend can stretch out comfortably for the duration of the flight.
Additional accessories can be purchased, but they are not necessary. If you do pick something up for your pet, we recommend the warmer for those of you in cool weather country. During lengthy travel periods, you can slip one of the dry fur barriers in to protect your pet from any urinary accidents.
It’s available in five stylish colors so you can match your current luggage set and take your jet setting pets wherever you go in style!
It retails for $149 but Amazon has them available for just $137. Click here to get the best deal!
