Sleepypod Air Product Review

We were sent a Sleepypod Air to review.  As we’ve come to expect with Sleepypod, a very innovative, modern and hip pet product company, Sleepypod Air is another excellent product in their line of cat travel products.  You might have already read the product review we did on their Sleepypod Carrier.

I am impressed with the Sleepypod Air carrier.  In fact, I like it so much that I will be using it for a regular carrier.  Here are the reasons that I love the Sleepypod Air:

  • It’s a fun color!
  • It has a black mesh top so that your kitty can see out, but feels safe and secure at the same time
  • Sleepypod Air Collapsed, Ready For Storage

    It collapses for easy storage – not only in your closet but also if you’re going to pick up a kitty and need to put the carrier in your suitcase

  • It feels good when you carry it with your kitty inside – it isn’t bulky or awkward
  • Charlie, Trigg and Caymus (the three Ragdoll cats that tried it out, loved it!)
  • You can use the straps on both sides to secure the Sleepypod Air in your car.
  • The plush cover on the removable foam bed is machine washable.
  • The outside of the carrier is easily cleaned with a damp cloth.

I love products that can be used for more than their original purpose.  Charlie and Trigg love to simply hang out in this carrier (if I leave it out).  They like that they feel hidden, but can see everything too.

As far as an airline pet carrier, the Sleepypod Air is also top notch.  Here’s why…

  • Sleepypod has done all the homework – this one fits under the seat – which is great for stowage during take-off and landing.

    • It meets most major airline carry-on pet regulations by being able to compress in length from 22″ to 16″.

  • Top open for easy access to your kitty.
  • You can purchase absorbent travel pads – in case there are accidents on longer trips.
  • You can easily slip it onto your roller bag – so that you can maneuver through the airport with ease.

The Sleepypod Air comes in 5 different colors:

  • Orange Dream – we product tested this color – so fun!
  • Jet Black
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Glacier Silver
  • Strawberry Red

There are also accessories that you can buy with your Sleepypod Air:

  • The Sleepypod Mini Warmer Kit can be installed in the pocket of the padding, and the cord has an access hole that goes out the bottom zipper on the back.
  • Absorbent Travel Pads are available for those longer trips where you can’t get your kitty to a litter box.

  1. Does this fit full sized ragdolls? My boy will probably reach the full 9 or 10kgs and I love this but I’m not sure if he’ll fit.

    1. Will you be using it on an airplane? My mom’s Caymus is 17 lbs and fit in it, but really couldn’t move around that much.

  2. I can just see my tuxedo cat missy laying in a straw berry red colored one And I could use it as a bed because my dog sissy has a crate that is soft and it is hard to find a carrier missy feels comfee in so I want to go with a soft sided carrier

  3. I read your posts about the sleepypod air and the atom and ended up purchasing 2 of the sleepypod air, even though it is really expensive here in germany, 199 euros each.
    my ragdolls are now weighting between 6 kilos and 6 kilos and a half, so i guess they were on the limit or over the limit for the atom… and i didnt want to have any regrets and have an expensive sleepypod atom unesed in the future, so i splurged and got two of the air.
