This innovative bird travel carrier is a great way for you and your bird to get out and about. Your bird may prefer to see their surroundings, in which case you can simply roll up the curtains and clip out of the way, leaving the stainless steel mesh uncovered. If your bird feels more secure in an enclosed environment just roll the curtains down and keep in place using the Velcro fasteners.

Inside are two holders for the two metal cups (supplied). You can use these to provide your bird with food and water, or perhaps some foot toys to help keep them entertained whilst you travel.

A wooden perch is also supplied which you can attach securely to the metal ring holes at the side of the carrier. There are a number of holes at different heights so you can fix your bird's perch at a height to suit them

The detachable straps are fully adjustable so your Parrot Backpack Carrier can be worn comfortably as a backpack or on your front. A detachable shoulder strap is also provided - see which you find most comfortable.

Your Parrot Backpack Carrier can be fully opened out so you can wash it when necessary (hand wash only) and has a removable bottom panel to make daily cleaning easy.

When not in use it is suggested to fold the carrier flat. It folds flat for easy storage and assembles in seconds. Check the carrier regularly and watch the bird to prevent the carrier being damaged.

Please note - although all possible steps have been taken to minimise chewing opportunities some birds will find a way to chew anything and everything! However, you know your bird best and with some planning you and your bird can soon be enjoying exploring the world together.

This is excellent. Its light and easy to carry on your back or over your shoulder. Our Yellow Headed Amazon fits in perfectly. Had a king cage up until now which was very heavy and difficult to carry and rattles when in the car. The backpack makes for a much less stressful travelling experience. Its also easy to store as it folds flat and takes seconds to assemble.

Nice Looking But Not Functional

I was really excited about receiving this product after reading the reviews. The delivery was quick and it was easy to assemble and it looks good. The perch however is not secure and it keeps spinning when my parrot tries to stand on it. I have tried everything and cannot seem to secure it. I am unable to use the backpack as my parrot does not like to stand on the floor of the backpack as he prefers a perch. This is a real shame as it is a good looking light product which would be ideal for car journeys and visits to the vet. It has taken a long time to write this review as my parrot does not like to be introduced to anything new and has taken ages to coax him into it.

An Excellent Little Product

I bought this for my quaker parakeet, Maya. We have been out in it three times now and it is a really good little carrier. I wear it on my front as I worry about her being jolted about if I wear it on my back, but I have found it really easy to use, comfortable to wear and reassuring because I can see her little head through the mesh as we walk so can tell if she is feeling a bit stressed. It has been a really great way to get Maya out and about and exploring the outside world. We go for walks in the park, and I think it would be a great way to take a bird on longer trips as the food and water containers are deep enough to stop spillages as long as you do not over fill them. I have only given it four stars because I would not use it as the only carrier for Maya. If I was going on holiday and had a lot of luggage to transport, this carrier would be a bit inconvenient to cart about, and I am not sure it is suitable for transportation to places like the vet. We have a separate carrier for convenience trips and use this one for leisure outings. However, it is great for car travel and she has really taken to it. The straps are fully adjustable, I have found the perch to be very secure and it is very easy to clean. I am really pleased with it and would highly recommend it!

Nice Looking Carrier, But Too Chewable

Location: Belgium
For around ten years, we have done a lot of hiking with our grey in a Flying South backpack. He loves it. But the cloth cover holding it together began to fall apart, and flying south have gone out of business.. sogave this a try Good things about this backpack 1. Much better looking than Flying South , less obvious that you are carrying a parrot. 2. the wire grid and covers give pretty good protection if wind showers blow over. 3. nice deep food and drink cups which dont spill easily 4. Roomy Bad things 1. My bird almost chewed through the support straps within the first week 2. the wire grid doesnt allow the bird to climb about inside, as cage bars do. needs some way to let of energy when he gets excited. 3. Straps too loose and uncomfortable for long walks. My daughter has recovered the flying south cage for us, so well be off walking again come spring.

I bought this for my amazon... it only arrived today and it looks fantastic, Quito flew over straight away whilst I was fitting all the straps and went straight in it... I cant wait to take him out, it will be great for days when I am working in the garden as it means he can join me. Its a lot larger than I expected and seems very strong and well made, my only quibble is the perch spins around and I know that will make him feel unsteady... so apart from the perch problem which I need solve, its perfect.

As the first person to write a review after actually using the backpack I feel it is not yet perfect. It was very hard to get it adjusted so that it was nearly comfortable for a human but the straps are too far apart and tend to slip off your shoulders. The perch fixings are far from satisfactory and one of the eyelets has fallen out. Casper, our Amazon seems to be happier on the floor of the backpack than on the perch, probably because he gets bounced about quite a lot as we walk along. We only use it for short walks when we have a lot of other stuff to carry so we can put up with these inconveniences, but have to remember not to bend over to pick up or put down other bags whilst he is on board.
