Sherpa Bags

I am thinking about getting Leo a airline approved bag/carry bag for transit trips etc. I have seen the Sherpa Pet bags (Original Deluxe Bag)and am interested, all reviews I have found are positive, stating that they are sturdy, well built, and last well. The design is appealing, and doesn't look "purse like" I don't want to carry him as a fashion statement, I just want a functional, and quality container that will last a long time, and resists damage.
One function I am concerned with is FOLDING, I wasn't something that will be able to be collapsed and reassembled without compromising the integrity of the bag. The site says they collapse but I have yet to see what they look like collapsed. So if anyone has experience with the brand, and specifically if you own one, please post a picture of it folded, I would appreciate it, and so would Leo, thanks!

I don't have the Sherpa bag, but I do have a similiar soft sided carrier (a Cdn Tire no-name knock-off of PetMate) I bought recently it has been the best thing for transporting my cat to the vet etc especially when I need to take the bus.

One thing I would make sure before buying is that it collapses (fold flat) from the bottom up, as mine does, this way the carrier will not fall in on top of your pet, unfortunately the Sherpa site doesn't mention if it folds in from the bottom, I'm sure they would let you know if you email them.

Leo is adorable :lovestruck:
