Rated 5 out of 5 by ravensong Great product /reasonable price
I camp ,vacation,and compete with my dogs. I have had various soft crates for the past 30 years . This seems to be constructed of very sturdy material. Sets up and down easier than any I have owned. I have some concerns about the lock open mechanism being tampered wth but even on the wild chance this happened I do not see a danger. Too bad it does not come in smaller sizes but it is plenty big enough for even a 90 pound dog.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanFaithful12 Great design!
Easily packed and unpacked. Holds up to a puppy scratching at the sides very well. Can't wait to take it on the road with us and our pup!

We live on a large farm and have several guardian livestock dogs for the sheep. We have one in particular who instead of bonding to the sheep, is in charge of our chickens we have for our own personal use. She sleeps on our front porch as our home is too warm for her breed. In addition, her job is to keep the chickens safe from the hawks, owls and coyotes to name a few so she needs to be outside. She has a memory foam, orthopedic dog bed but no shelter overhead other than the porch. Anyway, she is 100 lbs currently, with another year to fill out. She recently stopped fitting into the super small door on the chicken house so we added this on the porch. She hangs out inside and loves it! She has a fuzzy blanket, and the pad you suggested to go with it and we are all very happy with the purchase. Extremely easy to put up and take down. I put a quilted pad over the mesh on the sides to limit the air flow and it's all good. She's snug as a bug in a rug...We would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ajsmom26 I love it !!!!!!!!!
I couldn't give this 5 stars since we haven't tried it while traveling . However, my dog is crated when we leave for work and she seems quite comfortable in her pop up crate!!!!! I have left it set up,so she gets used to it and she loves it !!! By the way she is a 3y/o pit who fits comfortably !!

by KayakKrazi Stitching gave after a few uses
We bought this kennel to travel cross country camping. We only used it a few times because we have a service dog and he is usually with us. After a few uses the stitching in the upper right corner gave and the roof separated from the lower portion. I was surprised it gave out so quickly considering the price. Simply put the stitching was not strong enough and I think this would have happened whether there was a dog in it or not. I would not recommend this to anyone considering this happened with a very mellow dog after a few uses.

by Golucky Very Easy to Set Up, But not Perfectly Portable
OK LLBean...here is your challenge to make this the perfect crate. The external frame and the easy up/down design is fantastic. The problem comes when you try to get the very flimsy strap secured around the 'puptent' and then get it back into the carry bag. The strap is too short and has now become partially unstitched, the Velcro is too weak, and the hook it is slid through is very flimsy and slides out of place. I have given up on using the bag and strap and use an old belt to hold it together. I carry it by the frame as you would a suitcase by the handle. Awkward.
If you could come up with a better mechanism to secure and transport the puptent that was as fast and easy as the set up, you would have a true winner here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTMshopper Dogs love the Stowaway Dog Kennel!
Our dogs love the Stowaway Dog Kennel! And so do we! We take a lot of weekend trips to mountains and coast. We always have to take our heavy, bulky dog crates with us when we travel with our two lab mix dogs. No more. We bought two of the kennels. They are so easy to pack and extremely easy to set up. They are very light weight yet sturdy. Very easy to pack in the car. Once you set them up they are so roomy for the dog. These are actually a little more roomy than their crates at home. Very nice features with zip flaps on top and front. They are made of heavy quality tent type material. Very convenient and well made!

Large enough for a 120 lb. shepherd, construction is excellent, packs up in a convient carry bag, it is easy to set up and we are very happy with it. It could also work as an everyday kennel. Do get the base pad for it as our shepherd wasn't too comfortable with just a folded towel as a bed.

Very easy to use, nice and long which is great for fitting lengthy dogs. Its helpful that it can fold flat and fit behind a truck seat or fold up and go in the trunk of a car. Good ventilation and top opens for more if needed. Shoulder strap is nice bonus for bringing into field. The door could be a little bigger to allow easier in/out by dog. The strap that compacts the kennel when closed up is a little weak and has nearly come apart after half a dozen uses. Not a big issue though and the kennel is still fully functional and I see many many more uses in the future.
