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


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



Currently back-ordered. Estimated ship date May 17th
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 for cat adventures

As a vet student I always feel like I want to spend more time with my cat, Shuri, after long hours away. She always wants to go outside but walks on harnesses overwhelmed her and she would get very anxious. With this backpack she is so happy! I open it up and she jumps right in. When I get home we go for a destress walk and she purrs the entire time! She feels much safer up high on my back and able to see everything. The back pack is built really well and actually has lots of extra storage in the side pockets which is a huge bonus. The ability to add a hydration pack is also great, we might try some longer hikes this summer as she loves her daily walks.

Finally - A backpack that fits my body, is super comfy, AND is spacious for my cat!

The quality and fit of this backpack is just as nice as my REI backpack! I'm so impressed by the size, materials, and comfort of this backpack. All other backpacks I tried were truly a waste of money...this is THE ONE to invest in, 1000%. So over the moon about it.

Exceptional backpack!

I surely didn't expect this backpack to be THIS good. The moment I unpacked it, my 1yo cat jumped into it (not long before this, I've bought him a bed (from other site) and he could't even be near it) and started purring and sniffing it, not long after he started sleeping there. For one week I let him get used to this backpack and then we had some short trips. My cat isn't a big fan of car rides, but this backpack definetely made it more pleasant for him and it's clear that he loves this backpack and enjoys these rides and walks much more.
Before buying it I was a bit afraid that my cat would be too big for it as he weighs 6kg (13lbs) and is quite big-boned, but it's perfect. It is not only comfortable for him, but for me too!
The quality is also superb! I can't recommend it enough!

Love This Backpack!

We love the Navigator cat backpack! My cat, Basil, feels so safe in it when we are out and about. We haven taken him to parks, restaurants, and on a road trip in this backpack and I can’t imagine going back to before we had it. Thank you, Travel Cat, for making a backpack that so well suits our cat’s needs.

Awesome backpack

I was a little worried before I ordered that the backpack would not be sturdy enough to hold my boy as he he quick big and still growing! But I do have to say the back exceeded my expectations. It is very sturdy and made extremely well. The materials are quality and you can tell that by only having the back for a shot period of time. It has now also quickly become Figs favorite thing, he loves to just go and sit in it, play and take naps. Could not be happier with my purchase!
