About a month ago, I posted a review of the new, larger Kobi Pet Carrier (and the very new — in fact, not yet released — mesh luggage wrap). I liked it very much, you’ll remember, and I told you that I’d be buying one for Chloe. The carrier is big enough to accommodate a large small dog like my girl, but it still fits under an airplane seat — and the three extra inches you can add to its length by unzipping a gusset are priceless, especially on a long-haul flight.
According to my own rules, I cannot keep gear sent to me for review that costs more than $50. You, however, would hardly want a carrier that Chloe used on two long days of flying across country and back. Since I already planned to buy one of these carriers for my own use, I’ll keep the one Chloe’s used, and purchase the one I’m giving away (and have Kobi send it directly to you). Clever, right? And it’s even more clever than you think, because this way you get to choose whether you want your carrier to be the same color as the one Chloe tested (charcoal with black trim), or the other available color, chocolate with pink trim:
The carrier is valued at $114, and the mesh luggage wrap (I’ll send you the one I tested, since it hasn’t been Chloe-fied, and since it’s not yet available on Kobi’s website) is valued at $25. [6/2/13 update: The Luggage Adapter is now available on Kobi’s web site.] My thanks to Kobi for making it so easy for me to try out this carrier and luggage wrap, and for letting me give them away!
