We bought this to replace one of the hard plastic carriers. At first it was great – our cat had more room to move and it was certainly easier to carry. However, once we were nearly home the metal loop holding the shoulder strap failed and the bag, containing cat, nearly fell. On getting it home we found that the metal loops on both sides were bent out of shape. Our cat is within the weight range recommended for the bag. If you buy this product maybe don't use the shoulder strap, or be v careful.

Not tall enough
Although the quality of the product is excellent and good value for money, my cat hated the fact he could not stand up in it and became very distressed at having to virtually lie still when I placed him in it. He is an active cat who likes to move around. I currently have a large solid carrier which he is happy with but I wanted the convenience of one I could fold up when not in use.
My cat got out of it in the car
The zip on the top does not go all the way round and at one end of the bag there are gaps either side of the catch that holds it closed. Once the cat has figured out these gaps are there i pushes it with its head and then can get out quite easily. I will not buy another that is of this poor quality. Not ideal when transporting in a car when the cat gets out
