Like all Sleepypod Products, the Sleepypod Air can be used as a car travel carrier and it is CRASH SAFETY TESTED to meet child safety standards!
Among the very best airline approved carriers – Dog Fancy chose Sleepypod Air as a best product of 2010: “We reviewed several new carriers for our Editors’ Choice Awards, and the Sleepypod Air stood out for thoughtful design features,’’ says Ernie Slone, Dog Fancy magazine editor. “The breathable mesh makes it comfortable for pets, but also easy to conform to differing airline under-seat storage requirements. The carrier is easy to secure to rolling luggage, and hidden straps also make it a snap to fasten to car seatbelts, adding a measure of safety.’’
Worrying about buying a cat carrier or a dog carrier that will not fit under a plane seat is a thing of the past. Sleepypod’s folding system allows pets to travel in the largest space possible while the airplane is in the air, yet still allows for storage under an airline seat. When the captain says you can recline your seat, rotate the Sleepypod Air so it is between your feet and then expand the ends so both you and your little friend can stretch out comfortably for the duration of the flight. In-cabin pet travel has never been so comfortable.
Meets major airline carry-on pet regulations by being able to compress in length from 22″ to 19″ when one side is compressed, or 16″ when both sides are compressed. The ends are designed to expand when there is nothing blocking them. Once compressed, the ends of Sleepypod Air remain in a flexed position with the airline seat frame serving as its barrier; the ends fold down automatically to fill the available space.
Compressing Sleepypod Air for the first time:
- Before using Sleepypod Air with a pet inside, it is important to compress the ends a few times as they will be “fresh from the factory” stiff. The airline seat frames will also naturally hold the ends in an upright position when under the plane seat.
- Zip the Sleepypod Air so it is entirely closed and at full length. Hold the carrier lengthwise with your thumbs on the ends and the rest of your fingers under the Sleepypod Air. Apply pressure and compress the Sleepypod Air from this position. Three inches from each end you will feel a ridge on the bottom. This is the point where the Sleepypod Air will flex. The first compression of the ends will require a little extra force; thereafter, the ends of the Sleepypod Air will be pliant.
- Top and ends are easy breathing dark mesh that opens for easy access. Pass through pocket to secure to telescoping handle on pullmans. Large zipper pockets on both sides provide space for your pet’s essential in-flight items.
