Pet Gear Travel Lite Soft Crate
(4 out of 5)
The Pet Gear Travel Lite Soft Crate is a bargain option for a portable, folding crate.
May 5, 2011 12:17 pm | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.
For a low-cost, simple portable travel crate for dogs, the Pet Gear Travel Lite Soft Crate is a solid option. Like other similar soft-sided travel crates, the Pet Gear crate features nylon material over a steel wire frame, and is designed to fold easily so that you can store and transport with no fuss.
The good news? The Pet Gear Travel Lite Soft Crate lives up to its claim of being easy to assemble and disassemble, and is lightweight enough to carry without much trouble, wherever your adventures with your dog take you. And the cost is at the low end for soft-sided, steel-framed travel crates — just under $50 for a small size and under $100 for a large size (pets up to 70 lbs.) during some online sales.
The interior of the Pet Gear Travel Lite Soft Crate is roomy enough not to make your dog feel cramped or uncomfortable, and the zip-up front panel rolls up and secures easily. And the fabric is water-resistant, making the crate both easy to clean and ideal for outdoor camping treks.
If your dog is a particularly strong chewer — or just particularly strong — the Pet Gear Travel Lite Soft Crate may not be the ideal choice for you. But this is a small drawback — for the price, this easy-to-use crate is still a bargain.
Pros: Easy to fold and carry; low price compared to similar options.
Cons: Only suitable for dogs up to 70 lbs., may not stand up to stronger dogs.

Just bought one of these!

Set up is a snap! Pole construction offers more stability that zip up models (though I still love those made by Midwest and Precision). Three doors for access options. Large screen panels for maximum ventilation. This thing just rocks!
Pros: This is the most rockin' thing!
