Pet Life Lightweight Dog Crate
Very lightweight, almost too flimsy
I got a medium and I think it's a pretty typical medium size crate, although a lot of the fabric crates run bigger so I assumed this would be bigger. I bought a large Natures Miracle crate previously and that thing is enormous. This one is the same size as the standard metal crates.
This is extremely lightweight, and the only support that holds it up are two zippers. If you are looking for a travel crate that is very light, and your dogs don't move around a lot at night, I think this would be fine. If you're looking for a day or nighttime crate, I think it's too light and flimsy. I also think it's pretty expensive for what it is. I'm on the fence about returning it, I'm honestly just lazy about returns and my dogs are doing ok in it.

Traveling 12 hours
I am driving a long distance and need to transport 2 cats and a dog. Unfortunately if you search for a crate for cats..there is nothing out there that really works. This however is a HUGE mesh crate. Its perfect. I can even put a disposable litter tray in there. It's also big enough for my lab for other uses. Seems durable. Probably wouldn't keep a strong dog that dislikes being in a crate.

Excellent product, but has very limited use
This crate is actually fantastic. It's super fast and easy to fold up and put in it's carrying case, it's lightweight, and has a strong structure. My 3 year old niece was using it as a trampoline, and the frame didn't bend out of shape. The is a great shelter for supervised use... but how often do you really crate your dog supervised? We bought this crate for my dog so she would have something to sleep in in hotel rooms during our road trip. We tried it out for one night at home.. she chewed through the weak mesh door in a single night. Our dog has been crate trained for years, and is perfectly comfortable in her crate.. but this one was so easy to escape, she had no reason not to. She decided to get up early that morning... so she did.
This product is excellent in every way.. except the durability of the mesh door/windows. Not designed to withstand the rigors of doggy behavior.
