Product description

An extremely comfortable pet carrier with a pop-up mesh roof, rain cover and accessory pockets. Suitable for cats and small dogs. Colour: grey

The Sightseer Backpack Pet Carrier is a great way to transport your pet when you are out walking, on holiday or on your way to the vet. There is plenty of room for cats and small dogs and they will feel safe and comfortable when snuggled up in this backpack carrier.

The backpack carrier has a large, pop-up mesh roof. This allows your pet to see what is happening outside and it will not feel closed in or restricted. On the front of the carrier there is a further entry option which also has a mesh insert so your pet can look out.

The sturdy carrier base is covered with soft Sherpa plush. The removable, cosy mat creates a very comfortable place for your pet to snuggle down. The padded door flap can be opened out to provide an additional area for your pet to lie down and there is an integrated short lead to keep your dog from jumping out.

Your dog will love travelling in the Sightseer Backpack Carrier and both of you will appreciate the stress-free journeys.

The Backpack Carrier is made from strong polyester and weights very little when empty. It is pleasant to carry and there is plenty of storage space for small objects in the side pockets. The wide, padded ergonomic backpack straps are very comfortable and there is an additional snap buckle waist strap to make sure the backpack is secure and does not slip around. All in all a great way to carry your pet around while keeping your hands free for other things and protecting your back

A protective hood for mesh roof is also included, so your pet will stay nice and dry if it should start to rain. The cover is easy to attach with press studs. The Sightseer Backpack Pet Carrier folds away for space-saving storage.

Zips are problematic

Overall, this is a nice carrier but our cat can easily undo the zips at the top, which is very problematic and a definite fault in the product. This has ended up being quite a disappointing experience as I had to walk around holding the zips together. I have now ordered a small padlock to prevent our cat from trying to escape.

Ragdoll likes it

This was purchased for our indoor cat; a 4.7 kg Ragdoll. We initially put him in it and took him out but now he knows what is involved he chooses whether he wants to get in when we get it out. It's a brilliant idea and my son loves that we can take his cat with us to drop him off at school. I wish it was a little bigger though as our Ragdoll is only 9 months old so he will have to squeeze in if he gets any bigger! The quality is good, no complaints there :)

Impossible to get a cat into it

This is completely useless to me because I can't get my cat inside the bag for long enough to be able to close it. I have been able to get the cat inside using treats, but often there is a tail or even a leg sticking out. The time it takes to close the flap with the zip is a lot longer than the time it takes for the cat to jump out. It is a nice idea having a bag with a shoulder strap for carrying a cat, but a cat carrying solution needs to also be a trap, and this is not.

Good carrier for price

I bought this for my maine coons, I expected them to fit well having read several reviews. Unfortunately this is definitely not for large cats or anything bigger than a chihuahua. The carrier itself is ok for the price, i wouldn't trust the netting with a cat or determined dog though, and when the carrier is zipped up, it isn't level which makes it less comfortable for the furbaby.

Worth it's money

Strong backpack that fits my large cat in. Very secure and has a clip to attach the harness too for extra safety. Well impressed!

Large and sturdy enough for my big Siberian boy

Just in case you are worried if this can hold your car or small dog... This is good enough for a big Siberian boy... So unless you have a Maine coon, this backpack is for you. It also seems to hold his 6kg quite well. For a few trips per year, this does the job quite well. Great also having pockets where I keep his documents. Recommended

Excellent and intend to buy multiple!

Arrived in excellent condition and exactly like description and image. Cat loves it, I love it and could not ask for a better alternative - the best in the market! Will buy more when I get more kitties!

bend at the knees rather than bend over!

My cat loves travelling in this - I bought it to take her to my community garden where I have a plot, but felt mean escaping there in the hot weather and leaving her stuck indoors in the heat. Discreet - I can take her into Waitrose in this! I have to remember to bend my knees, rather than just bending over; I hadn't discovered the waist strap at first, bent over and she and the bag fell forward on to my head- probably why she thought it was a very smooth ride after that!

It's confortable

It's a good backpack for my cats. It's okay for my 4kl cat and a little small for my 7kl cat, but the backpack is strong enough for them.

Good product, but 5.5kg cat didn't fit

We have a 5.5kg cat. He's big. I thought it would fit in this carrier but unfortunately he did not. I am very pleasd with Zooplus customer service who processed our return very efficiently. But if you have a big cat (Norwegian / Maine Coon / Siberian) they will not fit in this carrier.

Cats love it !

My daughter often travels with her cat, and this backpack has been the answer to her prayers. So easy to carry as a backpack, leaving hands free , lightweight and not bulky on public transport like a travel box. Also the cats love being in the carrier and travel better. I love the soft base inside and how the cat can look out if it wants to. Rain cover a great idea, and the whole thing flat packs easily for storage. Amazing price too! Will be buying more!

Amazing for Cats!

Hi! I have one of these for my kitten. For when I take her to the vet. It is absolutely amazing! I've walked passed dogs with this on my back and they havent even noticed theres a cat inside. Its comfortable to wear. Really easy to use. We have another kitten now and I am going to buy another carrier for that cat aswell.

A great and possible life saving carrier

I brought this in case I needed to evacuate my flat quickly. Carrying a goldfish container and a cat carried both heavy may be a little difficult. So I brought this and I'm delighted with it and the quality is excellent My 17 yo cat wasn't too happy when i tried her inside it, so complained bitterly and gave me the stink eye, I guess she didn't appreciate the reduced size compared to her normal carrier. I hope I will never have to use it in an emergency but I feel happier knowing it is there.

My cat loves it, so I love it.

This is the handiest, light carrier ever and the extremely reasonable price makes it all the better. I thought it would be shredded in no time, but instead it became a sanctuary for my cat. I've used it in all weathers, on boats and trains and in the car. People always marvel at how well my cat travels but I've used it with my son's cat and it responded in the same way. I put it down to the non-claustrophobic design, that also offers a small hide-away for them. The pockets are nice and big too.

Have tried loads of bags for my French bulldog pup and this is bar farctge best and safest to let him come on long walks with the other dogs before he's aloud out So happy with my purchase thank you

I find this a great carrier for my 3kg chihuahua for when I'm out on the road on my scooter and when she gets tired after a long walk. It is comfortable to wear. I have worn this as a front carrier too with the mesh hood clipped back so she can do what she does best and be nosey 😊 I would of given it a 5* if 1) the front panel was ridged to make it more secure. 2) even though there is an attachment to connect to their collars it is a concern as I feel a dog could attempt to jump out and seriously hurt themselves so that needs to be stitched in lower. 3) the hood protecter that goes over the top if it rains etc is so tight so, quite a struggle when trying to do it and the press studs to keep it in place are in the wrong place (far too low). Finally my chi managed to open up the zips while out on a walk 😮 luckily I was with my friend who spotted what she was doing. This really should not be able to happen unless they are opened from the outside?! Due to this I now used a piece of elastic to tie them shut.

Sightseers backpack

I purchased this for my Yorkshire terrier. It's been great, better than I anticipated. I use it as a backpack when out walking, as a dog bed and as a way to contain her when visiting friends. The pockets are really useful for food and lead. It's also very easy to get her in and out. If I leave the bottom flap open she goes in on her own and settles down. I'm also going to use it as a place to keep her out of the sun in the summers when out and on holiday as it has the mesh top it provides lots of ventilation. I had been looking for something like this for a couple of years and finally found it in this backpack
