"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!

Well thought out.

I took my my Siamese cat out camping and this was absolutely perfect for her. For transporting as well as a safe place for her to be while away from home.

No regrets!

I was nervous to invest this kind of money but this is the best thing I’ve purchased for myself (and the cat). It is exceptionally well made, details are intentional and practical, my cat LOVES it and so do I! It’s got great storage, love the open air options, and he feels safe in it. No regrets at all!

Love it!

I should have bought the navigator first! My cat Ramsey loves the navigator and I do too! Don't get me wrong I love all the travel cat backpacks I have. (Fat cat backpack is the other one) I got this one purposely for the water bladder holder as I tend to forget water for myself on hikes. This makes is so much easier. Also the extra pocket space, the chest and waist straps ❤️. But my favorite feature is the little buckles for the zippers. Lovely added safety bonus. Definitely worth the purchase. 😃

So puurrffeect I got two!

The material is exceptional and the screen vents let a lot of air in. The many zipper openings make the backpack very versatile. My 2 Oriental Shorthair kitties love this backpack. Even when I bring them inside and set it on the floor they will lounge in them. I would buy this again if I were to get another OSH baby. Very sturdy to carry them in too. I keep the backpacks out and they rest and play in them throughout the day. They know immediately when I say "outside" they are going on an adventure and want to get into the packs. I love that they do not feel claustrophobic while fully enclosed in the packs. Worth the purchase and wait.

Great bag with good airflow

I got this bag to provide a bit air flow during the warmer weather for my cat. It's roomy and not too heavy to carry as a backpack. I wish the front zip opening direction was reversed (you currently zip up and roll up the mesh) , so that you could have option to adjust the opening height. This would help ensure more adjustments for privacy for the cat. I like to walk with opened, but worry about the slipping out by accident. It would also would be great if the cushions on the sides can be removed incase of being soiled. Overall, great carrier backpack and perfect for warm weather.
