This is probably one of the very finest pet car seats that I have seen as far as the quality goes. It is made of very durable material and although it is durable, it is also very soft and cozy for your pet. My little dog absolutely LOVES her new car seat!!! Her last one did not allow her the lift from the seat so she couldn't see out the window, which is one of her favorite things to do when we are traveling, but since this one has the sturdy strap that goes across the top of the seat, it puts her at just the perfect level so that she can see everything that she has been missing!
It also offers the strap to go around the lower part of the seat so that it anchors the car seat into place, so that your pet won't slide back and forth as you are taking curves or have to suddenly hit the brakes. The other feature that I liked, aside from the handy front and side pockets, is the strap that you clip onto their collar so as to prevent them from jumping out of the seat while the car is in motion. I know that for me, this is wonderful because I drive with both hands on the wheel at all times so I cannot afford to take the chance of wrecking because I am trying to catch my dog to put her back into her car seat. It also keeps me from losing time during my travels because otherwise, if she was to jump out, I would normally have to pull over to replace her into her seat.
You will not be disappointed if you purchase this car seat, it is definitely worth the money and then some!!!
