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!

Awesome bag

I bought this bag after I saw it in Tiktok. I wanted to buy something big enough to fit my 12.5 lb baby and have some space to move around. The bag arrived after 2 months but it was worth the wait! My baby Coco absolutely loves it and gets in the bag with no complaints. I hiked 5 miles with her in the bag and we had no issues. The bag is sturdy and plenty of ventilation! It’s definitely worth the price and the wait! Thank u for making this awesome product ☺️💕

Shuggie Approves

Me and my girlfriend just adopted Shuggie, and while he loves to hike and explore on his own, we wanted to give him options for when he gets tired and needs a break, cold creek crossings, and when we feel there are potential threats from unleashed dogs. Shuggie loves the breathability of the pack and it’s ability to open up in the back so he can enjoy the majestic views of Sedona. We couldn’t be happier with this pack!

Perfect Cat Backpack!

This backpack is exactly what we wanted/hoped for. Our adventure cat was comfortable with it very quickly and is happy to be carried as it provides excellent viewing options via all the mesh (or sometimes sticking out head out the top if we leave that panel open). He also loves the size, as it comfortably fits all 13 ponds of him with lots of room to move and turn. It's a great home base for him when we are away from home and provides a retreat after exploring the outside. On the human side, we love the quality of the backpack and all the thoughtful features included. It's a backpack clearly made FOR cats, not one that just happens to work for cats also. We have already recommended it to one friend looking for a new cat carrier and will continue to do so!

Quality, comfort and roomy for my fur baby!

Thrilled with the quality of these backpacks. My husband and I can adjust to fit our bodies comfortably allowing us to push luggage thru airport. Our Chartreux boys, Finn and North are heavy kitties and travel well in this backpack! Plenty of room to lay down, move around and they love popping their heads out to look around and I love knowing they are secure with the heavy duty tether inside! We ordered and tried many backpacks before finding the perfect one and this is it! Several zip open options with solid, quality zippers, adjustable and very comfortable, padded shoulder straps, waist strap helps secure and minimize bouncing while easing the weight of our boys on our backs, easy to clean interior, multiple pockets for treats, wipes, phone and more. A bit large to fully fit under the seat in front of us on the airplane but no complaints from jetblue so we are good! Best carrier we’ve found!

The best cat backpack

We have a 8 years old cat, Mewky, we bring him to bike and hike with us more than 50% of the time. He is 12 pounds big boy.
We had so many backpacks in the past 8 years, different styles. This one is the best ever. I had the feeling it worth every single pennies when I got it, you can tell from the material, and the details, they really are cat lovers otherwise they can’t design this backpack exactly the way we wanted. They know us!!! For example front opens, top opens, roll up and hook on designs. Mewky can stand up on my shoulder and look out. The most important thing is the back support is very comfortable! I carry Mewky hike for hours, old backpacks killing my lower back badly. This one gives perfect support!
You won’t be disappointed. Worth the money. And Mewky loves to sleep and nap inside the backpack when we are inside the house as well.
