First, a note on my dog. She's a 6 year old 6 lb Maltese. It is the perfect size for her. I was concerned that since she's nearly as long as the bag nose-to-rear that she wouldn't be able to turn around. She stands up and turns around just fine. Half the time she curls up on one end, even, but her favorite position is lying lengthwise with her head resting on the open edge when I open the flap and velcro one end back. This is her happy place. She's a very nervous dog and a rescue. For her, this bag means security and the promise that she gets to come along with me on my next adventure. If she sees me putting on my shoes and coat, she climbs into the bag. All I have to do now is say "bag" and in she hops. She doesn't care that she's about to be jostled on my hip for the next several hours, she is just happy she gets to come along.
Second, the bag. It is very well made and makes sense on a number of levels. I wear it cross body style but also on one shoulder. It gets heavy over time, and she's only 6 lbs, but if you're stronger it won't seem so bad. I'm so glad I did not go with the Air, it would have been much too big for both of us. The Atom works well slipped over my carry on luggage and I love the harness clip inside. She jumped out of the bag a couple of times but because she was clipped in I was able to quickly get her back in the bag. The side pouches hold her documents, flattened water bowl, treats, toys, pee pad, etc.; everything I needed for international travel (9 hr Atlantic flight followed by 6 hr domestic flight). I love that the flaps fold up to allow her to stick her head out and observe the world while we're on the move.
In all, I am completely happy with this bag, thrilled with the color, and don't have any cons I can think of!
Overall, I have spent months trying to find the right bag and while this isn't perfect (I'd like the storage compartments to be zippered and one side of the bag to be mesh so my dog can see me, this is very close.
First, I have a sports car. The seats are sort of set back at an angle, instead of say, the more flat seats of our truck. So the seatbelt doesn't fit correctly around the carrier. In pictures online, it shows a good amount of room between the bottom of the carrier and where the seatbelt goes around it. Because of the way my seats are angled, the seatbelt barely holds the SleepyPod in place: I'm afraid that one serious break or swerve and the carrier would slip out from the seatbelt. Second, the chest part of the seat belt actually slips across the corner of the SleepyPod, either crushing it, or closing off that space for my puppy. The seatbelt also does not stay tucked behind the back wall of the SleepyPod. Second: the carrier flops inward if I'm not using the mesh panel to help support the opening. I want my puppy to be able to freely look out, but he can't with this thing flopping in his face. My puppy also goes to town on the velcro closure that is *inside* of the carrier, that is meant to secure the ends of the mesh panel, up, so your dog can look out. Also, it's the mesh panel that has a haul handle, which isn't well thought out: there should be two haul handles (like a duffel bag), sewn to the actual sides of the bag. The tether is too long to hold my tiny, 1.5 lb puppy in place, and he's still able to climb out the sides of this carrier. So he's either licking and chewing on the seat, the seatbelt or the door handle...or he's climbing out altogether and risking hurting himself and distracting me, as a driver (seriously dangerous on two occasions...the last occasion, I had to turn the car around and take puppy home and when I decided to stop using this horrible thing). Forget trying to unzip the mesh panel with just one hand. Oh, and this thing gets seriously hot, even with the mesh panel.
