Travel Anywhere with the Sleepypod® Air - Review and Giveaway

Are we going somewhere?
Presenting the Sleepypod® Air
FTC Disclosure:  We received a glacier silver Sleepypod® Air in exchange for our fair and honest review. We were not compensated for our review and all opinions are our own. Sleepypod is not responsible for the content of this post.

We can finally share the secret we've been keeping for the past few weeks.  We are proud to present the Sleepypod® Air to our readers.  We know many of you are familiar with the Sleepypod® products because of their attention to safety in all of their harnesses and carriers.  Every Sleepypod carrier and harness includes the Pet Passenger Restraint System (PPRS) components and features to improve pet passenger safety.  You can see the Sleepypod Air Crash Test on YouTube.

The Sleepypod Air not only meets Sleepypod's strict safety standards and high quality materials and color selection, but is offers an innovative solution to the numerous conflicting airline size restrictions put on pet carriers by providing size versatility through flexibility.  The unique design of the Sleepypod Air allows it to contract in size to fit below most airline seats during takeoff and landing when pets must be under the seats.  The Sleepypod Air can be expanded to allow your pet the largest possible space below an airline seat.  Watch the video from Sleepypod see how the Air is assembled, adjusted for flexibility, set up in a car for safety, and general information.

We haven't traveled in a plane before, but the Sleepypod Air is also designed to safely carry us to the vet (when needed) in the car.  We're scheduled to visit the vet in a couple of months and we're sure the vet will like that the entire cover can be unzipped to allow easier access to us.  Truffle tends to get pretty nervous in the car and at the vet.  Unfortunately, Mom Paula needed to turn our traditional carriers upside down in order to get Truffle out. Truffle also likes enclosed places to feel more secure.  She can easily see outside the top end end, but others can't easily see her, so she feels safe.
Key features of the Sleepypod® Air

As soon as Mom Paula put the Sleepypod Air together, Truffle immediately went inside. Mom Paula was able to zip her up with little problem.  We do recommend that if you have a cat who is difficult to put in a carrier that you have the Air already zipped except for the end to make it easier.  If your cat (or dog) wears a collar or harness, there is a latch you can connect to the Air to help if she tries to escape when the carrier is unzipped at the airport or the vet.
Truffle is comfortable in her Sleepypod®  Air


The Sleepypod Air comes in 6 different colors to satisfy anyone's taste.  We received the Glacier Silver from Sleepypod because we thought the silver and black would match our silver fur wonderfully.  We love the limited edition Robin Egg Blue, but don't know how long it will be available.  Whatever color you choose, you'll be satisfied with the style, color, safety, flexibility, and convenience of the Sleepypod Air.

we have a fold up cage but Robin would travel so much more comfortable and stylish in a Robin Egg Blue sleepypod

Amanda Yantos said...

We've heard a lot of great things about Sleepypod but we have yet to try them! I'd really love to get my hands on one!

Amanda Yantos said...

I've traveled with Wynston on an airplane but only in the car with my cats! I love the robin egg blue :)

speedyrabbit said...

Thats a great looking carrier,xx Speedy

Diane Holland said...

These look amazing! While I don't have a cat, I do have a little chihuahua that I would love to have one for!

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

I thought that was a Sleepypod Air when you shared a peek the other day! I have the Atom, because I am a little cat, and it is awesome! I've flown in it more times than I can count!*

*Being a kitty, counting is not really my forté.

Brenda Penton said...

I do travel with my cats. I would get the orange.

The Daily Pip said...

Wow, the Sleepypod Air sounds amazing. We have never traveled with our cats, but this looks perfect for trips to the vet - we have one very challenging cat who doesn't like traditional carriers. Also, good to know that it is safe for dogs up to 15 pounds - Ruby is 14 pounds.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

So exciting! Bear doesn't travel with me, but we are looking at new carriers for when he needs to be transported somewhere. This looks perfect and so much easier to manage than our old hard-side carrier (Bear is especially talented at NOT going in at home or not coming out at the vet). We'd love the Glacier silver.

Oz theTerrier said...

Oh, I knew it was a Sleepypod! I am so glad you got one and can travel in safety!

The Island Cats said...

We don't travel much...only to the vet...but this SleepyPod would make a great carrier for us. We would like the red one or the black one.

Laila and Minchie said...

They have really thought of everything!

Kat S said...

The Sleepypod looks so much more comfortable than our hard plastic carriers! And airier! Mom likes red best.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That would be awesome pawsome to get a new fancy carrier! We love it!

Sherri Telenko said...

My cat hates carriers and she shreds mesh ones very easily. I'm wondering how easily this one would shred. When I first got her from the SPCA (17 years ago), the sold me 'a good quality soft carrier.' On the way home, I noticed a cat climbing around in the backseat of the car - she had torn it open before we got home. In the garbage it went.

Nichole Burke said...

That looks like a really awesome and comfy carrier!

Cathy Keisha said...

I would choose the blue.

Kia said...

Love the photos and the review. Sleepy pod sounds like it really comes in handy for travel and super safe too!

Kayley said...

I travel with my cat in a hard carrier, and I think she'd prefer this one. I'd choose the teal color so it's easily visible.

Three Chatty Cats said...

Wow-wee! This looks like such a great carrier! I've never taken the cats on a plane (and hope to never have to). As for car rides, it's just to the vet and back. I like the Glacier Silver.

M. K. Clinton said...

This would be perfect for flying with a small pet. I have heard wonderful things about Sleepypods.

dezizworld.com said...

Oh MeoW dat looks pawsum. Fanks fur sharin'. Paws crossed we win. We luv dat dark chocolate.

Luv ya'

Dezi

maryehaight said...

Tashi would look great in that, and he needs that for the to-and-fro to the vet and his specialist :) Sleepypod's the best! Thanks for your review!

Lone Star Cats said...

We usually travel in da car in a carrier. We'd pick da robin's egg blue one.

Kristen said...

We usually travel by car. I'd choose Strawberry Red.

Jana Rade said...

These look pretty awesome. Of course, none of our guys would fit in such thing :-)

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

That is a nice giveaway. The Robin's egg color is nice and so is the Glacier silver.

Kitties Blue said...

This Sleepypod looks fabulous. We don't use our round one as a PTU as it is a bit cumbersome for our mom to carry with her mobility problems. This new Air model looks purrfect for vet trips. Our other Sleepypod is Robin's Egg Blue so we would love to win that. The red would be our second choice. We have our paws crossed we win. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Tenacious Little Terrier said...

Mr. N has been on a lot of different forms of transit (bus, plane, car, trolley, boat etc). I like the robin's egg.

Kitty Cat Chronicles said...

We've been wanting to get one of these! We have a regular Sleepypod, but since we can't fly with it and Mom hopes that Sophie will one day be able to fly to Blogpaws with her, we need an Air too! We would like the Strawberry Red, or black as a second choice.

Dash Kitten said...

OH can I enter and pretend I am in the USA while I am BlogPaws * giggle * This is one HECK of a great transport and perfect for cats (and small dogs eh?). Good luck to the happy Sleepypod winner!

Linda Szymoniak said...

We haven't really traveled with our cats, but want to. My daughter has a cat and she really wants to take him with her when she visits her boyfriend (he has two cats and they want to see how they get along). This would be a safe way to take him with her. I'd pick the Strawberry red if I win.

Daily Dog Tag said...

What a terrific giveaway! I think the robin egg blue is my favorite, but the silver is quite pretty too.

FiveSibesMom said...

What a wonderful giveaway! Thank you for hosting it. When we travel with our pets, our Huskies have seat belts or crates. Binx, we have a hard shell carrier, but he'd love one of these fab pods! The silver is sweet!

Christine Caplan said...

If I travel ever with the doxies I will clearly be getting a Sleepy Pod for Bruisy. I'm even thinking we use in the car rather than a crate for little Bruisy.

Ruth Epstein said...

Glacier silver and am thinking of going away in the summer and it would help so much when I take her on the bus or train :)

Fur Everywhere said...

We do a lot of traveling to the vet in the car! If we win, we'd love a Robin Egg Blue carrier. We hope we win - we have been wanting a Sleepypod for a long time!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

Such a great giveaway! We have one of these that lives in the trunk of the head peep's car because of how neatly it folds up. Good luck to everyone who enters. Whoever wins this is really going to love it.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

We think the Sleepypods are just pawsome!!! We love the orange dream!

jill190 said...

The Sleepypod is so much better than a the hard crate that I use to travel with for Max.

carol johnson said...

I use the standard hard plastic carrier. I would like Srawberry red.

Annette said...

I travel with mine in pet taxis. I'd like a silver sleepypod.

Melissa said...

Usually a pet carrier I like the Red

Jennifer Long said...

I would choose black, two of my cats have dark hair, i use the hard case which is heavy and hard to get through doors i have always wanted a softer one, this one is nice!

Shelley P said...

I currently use a plastic carrier. It's not airline approved or as comfortable as the Sleepypod Air so this would be pawsome to have! :) I love the Glacier Silver color the most.

katieoscarlet said...

I like the robin egg blue color. Kitties are hard to travel with especially since if they're getting in a car they think they are going to the vet.

Jean Dion said...

This looks great! Very small Boston terrier Sinead has gone on a plane once, and she's heading back to a plane this month. I'm sure she'd love this in Glacier Silver or Red!

Jean from Welcome to the Menagerie

Caitlyn said...

Would love one of these! Aside from looking great, they've gone through so much testing and I would know my ladies were safe in the car!

AliR said...

They are going to have to start making these for 50lb + dogs...of course they'd have to be on wheels with an optional valet to assist me ;-)

meowmeowmans said...

Wow, that Sleepypod sure is cool! If we won, we would choose the red, or the robin's egg blue. :)

Lindsay Pevny said...

I'd love to travel with Matilda in this, the mesh windows would really reassure her when we travel by plane, especially robin egg blue!

Robin Mudge said...

Manna would absolutely love this! I think she would like the Robin's Egg Blue. It would be so nice to have a crash tested carrier for her.

Amber McRory said...

This would be so wonderful to have for our kitty that needs to travel a lot!

www.shelter-cats.com said...

Our present carrier is awkward to carry getting in and out of the car. This one looks like a great improvement! I like the red one. Thanks for having the give away.

GonetoTheSnowDogs said...

I know a few kitties who would really enjoy this. I will enter and if I win, I will be giving it to our kitty friends!

Diann Gouine said...

Looks awesome, like the blue

Jans Funny Farm said...

That sure does look like something every kitty should have.

Spencer the Goldendoodle said...

I would choose the silver color! I love how safe this carrier is and how it is made for the car or plane.

Jess Zimmerman said...

Sassoon would love this - he likes his other carrier, but it would be nice to have a more 'black out' one!

Jennifer Allensworth said...

We use a hard kennel as a travel case but this looks a lot nice. I'd pick the robin egg blue color.

Beth said...

I have not tried them but would probably go with the robin's egg blue

Lia said...

I've never taken my Meow on a plane but she would look great travelling by car in Glacier Silver!
