Sturdibag Pet Carrier

$84.99 Product No. 216718 | Brand: Sturdi Products
   Based on 13 reviews  | 

Perfect flexible height carrier provides your pet protection while conforming to different spaces - like under the seat of an airplane.

Super light in weight, only 2 lb. 7 ounces, with a rigid foam core base, and top quality durable materials made to last from award-winning Sturdi Products, Inc.

Most airlines have weight restrictions for on board pet travel. Using a SturdiBag you already gain several pounds to your advantage over other carriers. (Always check with your airline before travel for their policies).

SturdiBags are for much more than airline travel. Use for pet shows, or traveling around town. The built in seatbelt loops, or corner anchor loops, enable you to secure the carrier in your car. Washable by hand or machine, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Small: 18"L x 10"W x 10"H - for pets up to 12 pounds.
Large: 18"L x 12"W x 12"H - for pets up to 20 pounds.

Note: We've taken the guesswork out of setup. Watch the video to learn the easy way to assemble your SturdiBags. Use a hard surface when inserting roof rods.

How to Assemble Your SturdiBag

Watch our video, or follow these instructions...

Unzip the front door and place the zippered pocket end on a hard surface.

Look inside and locate the two sets of rod guides located on either side of the mesh roof windows.

Insert the first rod all the way through the guides.

Press the rod down against a hard surface so it will flex enough to place the end in the tab pocket near the entrance opening.

Repeat the process with the second rod.

Unzip the base pocket and insert the ultra light foam core base. Zip closed.

Place pad inside on carrier floor while aligning the velcro and press into place.

Adjust the length of the 4-point shoulder strap by sliding the webbing through the tri-bar on each strap.

Use of the Tether Strap
Pull back the fleece pad to expose the "D-Ring" on the floor of the carrier. Attach one end of the tether strap to to this d-ring and the other to your pet's harness. A collar is not recommended.


Before washing, remove the shoulder strap, pad and the flexible roof rods. Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water using soap or non-bleach detergent. Hang to dry out of direct sunlight. Animal hair and lint may be removed from Velcro with a stiff brush. Wash Pad separately.

Fleece Floor Pad
Machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water using soap or non-bleach detergent. Tumble dry with low heat.

My dog is 16lbs dog and fits comfortably. Only thing that I wish it had was another opening on the other side.

Great Carrier!

My puppy and I love her new carrier. It is the perfect size. There is plenty of ventilation so my puppy is comfortable. GW Little is a great company. I will definitely be ordering from them again.

Fantastic portable dog crate!

We bought a SturdiBag Pet Carrier for our puppy and even though she's only 4 pounds now, we use this carrier for her anytime we're on a trip that does not require us carrying her around too much. The carrier has plenty of room to grow but is not overly cavernous, so she feels comfortable and loves it. It's very portable, great for car trips, but not comfortable for me to carry as a shoulder bag for too long. I don't expect one carrier to do all things, so for an outing that requires a lot of carrying, I use the Snoozer Pet Messenger Bag.

But the SturdiBag is my favorite dog carrier. Puppy loves it and she can play with her toys or curl up and go to sleep. The carrier is well made and easily washable. I like the wire arch construction. It takes some effort to force the wire supports into place on first assembly, but after that it's good to go. I also like the washable egg-crate foam pad that comes with the Sturdibag. We bought a different carrier for a future airplane trip, but I think the SturdiBag will do just fine, and I might just return the other airplane carrier, so that our dog can just travel in her familiar SturdiBag. In the meantime, in my home office, in the car, and day trips to visit friends, the Sturdibag is my go-to portable crate.
