Backpack Pet Carrier by Mr. Peanut’s, Luxury Travel Tote with Premium Zippers, Safety Clasps & Plush Faux Fleece Bedding
What’s the Difference? I love it when buyers ask me this question. Having designed and sold multi thousands of pet carriers and hearing every issue and concern I can answer this here as best I can. I know it is hard when shopping online. All of the pet carriers you see look similar and its hard to compare materials, features and the “look and feel” as one can easily do in person, but here is my summary of what to look for in a pet carrier and what is most important to know or ask, so look for these key features in all brands and compare –
Zippers – These are one of my pet peeves as the zipper quality can turn a fantastic carrier into a loser very fast. When the zipper breaks at the airport or even in your car your carrier of choice becomes basically worthless. Make sure the brand you are looking at includes hi quality zippers from a reputable zipper brand. My totes are all designed with only premium brand zippers, and I improve and upgrade them often as new and better versions come along.
Carrier Structure – Soft Sided Pet Carriers by definition are frameless and are mostly only supported by thin steel wire running along the edges and sides of the tote. Keep in mind when you look over images in a listing on any product those will be taken to show off the product in the best possible way, and are often edited to improve the look of the product image. It is very hard to see differences in materials and structure in a product image, but all of my totes are designed with a very strong waterproof nylon material that is also used in the manufacture of military grade parachutes. The materials used help to avoid the sagging, wrinkled look and give the totes additional structure.
Pet Safety & Comfort – Lastly, but the most important feature. The pet tote you choose should have locking zippers and very strong mesh. They should have a leash ring to attach a leach and to insure your pet can be secured while stressed during travels. They should have well designed and secure adjustable carrying straps, in the case of a backpack. They should have a comfortable bedding pad. All of Mr. Peanut’s tote designs include all of these and more. I also add a thick and plush faux fleece pad for your pet’s comfort.
Many Copy the Design, None Copy the Quality

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR PET – I always recommend to measure your pet while comfortably laying down as this is the typical position during flight time. Keep in mind all of my airline approved totes are designed with pet safety and comfort as the priority, and then by airline under seat requirements, so sizing is limited by that criteria.
