Note: I received this carrier for free from Sherpa as the result of a giveaway. Other than that, I currently have no relationship with the company.
I won this new Sherpa Comfort Ride Pet Carrier from my pals Truffle and Brulee! I was really excited about this, since I travel a lot, and Sherpa specializes in travel carriers.
It comes out of the box in two main pieces that you zipper together. The bottom piece has a removable liner for easy cleaning.
We got the medium sized carrier, and it is a good thing because even though I weigh 7 lbs. and technically that means I could fit in a small, the medium is already pretty small, as you can see! I don’t think Boodie would fit in it very comfortably, and she is about 10 lbs.
Let’s see how I fit in it!
It is not exactly roomy in here, but the good thing is that this carrier is part of Sherpa’s Guaranteed On-Board program. That means that this carrier is approved for use on most major U.S. airlines. So you can be sure that it will fit under the seats in the cabin. My Atom carrier is what I usually fly in, and it is just a bit bigger than this one, so I will keep using it for longer trips. This one would be better for shorter flights, like less than a couple of hours. I think it would be cramped to fly all the way to the East Coast.
The new Sherpa carrier does have some cool things, like the mesh on three sides so I can see more of what’s going on! (Plus it’s chew resistant, as I discovered.) And it has this zippered side pocket for my paperwork and cat treats.
So other than it being a little bit small, I think this carrier is pretty awesome! Now, if only I could get a photo here by myself.
That’s better! I don’t have any short flights planned for a while, so my human will use this to take me on a few therapy pet visits to see how I like being in it. I think I will enjoy it.
