Why This Will Be Our Go-To Bag . . . Whenever We Do *Actually* Make It to Italy
When we do finally board that plane to Italy, I'm sure this carrier will have held up no matter how many trips happen between now and then. Much like a quality piece of luggage, if you factor in buying several bags after ripped seams, holes, broken handles, or busted zippers, this is a one-and-done item that lasts for years to come.
Plus, its airline-approved size fits under the plane seats (and the top edges can smoosh down as needed), and my 13-pound dog was able to turn around with no problems with space to spare for a toy and a bone, too. I love the fact that the pocket can also hold a phone, my slim wallet with ID, and a boarding pass along with treats, so there's easy access to those essentials when juggling an actual purse, this bag, and a carry-on suitcase at the airport.
I let Beau peek out — and air out — on the way back since he did an impromptu dive into my parents' pool when I let him run off steam before we left for the station. Good thing that soft lining could be removed and tossed in the wash when we got home as he was still wet when we boarded. However, I'm definitely thinking I need to invest in the brand's life jacket next since, not only are there lakes on my to-go list outside of Rome, I wouldn't put it past him to try to leap into the Trevi Fountain.
Ahead, find this bag, a doggie-size life vest, and other Maxbone travel-related goodies, so you can take your own furry friend on the adventure of his life this summer and beyond.
