CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS
WOpet pet portable carrier bag is solidly made, with high quality materials to ensure a safe trip for your pet.
The Bag: It’s made from durable cordura type nylon that is lightweight and strong. The bag is zippered on top along 3 sides and another zipper opens the bag on the front side offering your pet access on top and side.
The quality of the zippers are good. The zipper tabs are on the thin side, made from faux leather type material.
There is a pocket on one side that goes the full length, with the handles stitched in, creating 3 separate drop-in pockets, adding an extra zippered pocket to the middle larger pocket. So in total you have 4 pockets to store papers, leash, etc.
The bag comes with a tag that contains a sheet to write your pet’s data and is attached to one of the handles by a pin buckle closure system.
The bag has a mesh black fabric that works as screen for your pet to have ventilation. This mesh it’s on front and back sides and also on one of the large sides.
Inside the bag there is a little “seatbelt” which is a little strap with a ring to hook the pet’s harness to prevent your pet from jumping out the bag. This little strap is stitched inside the bag so it’s firm.
The hand straps are made from the same strong material than the shoulder strap. These hand straps go together by a holder that closes by 2 snaps.
The Floorboard and Fleece fabric: The floorboard is firm but not completely rigid, but firm enough to create a strong floor for your pet, so your furry friend won’t get squished inside.
This floorboard gets attached to the bag with velcro. Also, on top of this floorboard their is a fleece fabric that gets attached to the floorboard by a velcro as well, creating a solid and soft floor for your pet.
Shoulder Strap: The strap is adjustable and optional. It goes attached to the bag by hooks to the rings on each side of the bag. The strap is really solid and strong.
