"The Navigator" Convertible Cat Backpack - For Adventurous Cats and Humans


"The Navigator" Convertible Cat Backpack - For Adventurous Cats and Humans



Calling all adventure cats! This is the ultimate cat travel backpack for you! 

Our newest cat backpack model, "The Navigator" Convertible Cat Backpack, was designed with rugged, outdoorsy kittiesand their pawrents in mind. With creative additions like fully mesh siding, extra pockets and zippers, and special storage for water, this is the best cat backpack for hiking and exploring. Whether you wear it as a cat hiking backpack or convert it to a traditional carrier, your furry friend will stay cozy and secure. Holds 1-2 cats up to 25 lbs.


The sleek, grey cat backpack includes:

  • A water reservoir pocket to store a water bladder bag (not included) -- perfect for hiking or a long day of travel!
  • A zippered pocket with three inside pockets and a key hook. Stay organized while in movement!
  • Two spacious side pockets to hold water bottles, cat treats, supplies, or anything else you might need!
  • Zipper clips on every zipper, to ensure that Fluffy is secure in their cat carrier for hiking.
  • A detachable and adjustable shoulder strap to quickly and easily convert the backpack to a traditional carrier.
  • An extended, soft plush mat that can sit at the base of the extra-large cat backpack AND unfold to cover the length of the carrier. It’s removable, making it easier to clean!
  • TWO clips and bungees that attach up to two cat harnesses, allowing them to safely “hang out” of the backpack’s front or top, without risk of them unexpectedly jumping out. Try also attaching one to your cat’s leash while they hike alongside you!
  • Strong mesh material that covers the top and sides of the big cat backpack. It offers great breathability and is completely resistant to cat claws. No tears on our watch!
  • Air holes in the front that provide additional ventilation. Bonus: they are a great way to slip your kitty treats!
  • Adjustable chest and shoulder straps that allow you to fit the backpack perfectly to your body, and provide extra support for your fur baby’s weight. The straps on this model adjust by both length and height!
  • An extra-long adjustable waist strap for additional support and comfort.
  • The ability to fold up and pack flat for easy storage and transportation!

The best! I’ve had cat backpacks in the past and they’ve all been put to shame with The Navigator. It’s sturdy, comfortable (for humans and cats) and has lots of pockets and compartments to fit everything you’ll need! 🏕️😍 - would highly recommend!

Very durable, I have a Maine coon kitten that uses it as his play box and bed. He is a wild one and I would think the way he plays it would be shredded, but I don’t see a mark on it.

Love it!

My cat is happy and comfortable in it, and it's stable on my back. I walk or bike with it!

Love Navigator Backpack

I love the Navigator backpack, I purchased it for my Hiking adventure. I recommend
buying it. I love it The Navigator Cat Backpack, but I wish it came in different colors.

Comfy for Cat and Human - Couple of Quality Issues

It’s the comfiest cat backpack I’ve ever had - my cat is happy in it, I’m happy wearing it. He’s a big boy so many didn’t fit him or fit him comfortably, but the Navigator does. It’s a shame the internal leashes were changed from elasticated to extendable, they dangle in the way. Several plastic clips to hit him. I also find that several of the adjustable straps inside the bag have no means of tying away the excess straps so they just hang loose in the bag. The instructions were somewhat confusing regarding putting the removable mat into the bag, and the quality of the fabric used on the water bladder pocket is poor because my cat has already caught his claws in it and made small holes in it. Overall, love the design. Big pockets, loads of windows, just wish the quality of the internal materials was more cat claw safe, the straps tied back better, and that there was some sort of waterproof/windproof cover for unpleasant days you’re forced to travel.
