The Older Style Was Better
Although this pet carrier is really cute, I really like the older style better. First off, the older style had a wipe clean lining on the inside that was much easier to clean when pets had accidents, this newer style just has the fabric lining.
In the older style the pad on the inside was MUCH softer.
The older style had two ways for pets to get in: one on the top and one on the side, with double zippers that were connected by a piece of pull fabric so you could open or close the carrier quickly and easily. This newer style only opens at the top and a lot of times when placing my finicky cat inside, it is hard to keep her in without jumping out and trying to zipper both zippers at the same time.
The only positive thing I like about this carrier over the older style is that it is more roomy inside.
Cute product, but not as functional and well-made as the previous version.

Great carrier for small dog
I have a 5 lb Yorkie-poo that travels with me about 5 trips per year. I owned the previous design vera bag with side zippers and recently purchased the new design. I much prefer the new design. The bag is slightly bigger and only one zipper is easier for placing her in the bag then dealing with the top zipper and side zippers. The new design works great.

Great for Rabbits
I have a Mini Lop Rabbit who loved my vera weekender and would really love to stretch out and rest on it whenever I had it out and so I was really excited to be able to buy him his very own Vera bag that he could use, and that would also look cute when he goes on trips. I also love that it's really light even with him in it because thats one thing I have never liked about the hard carriers, or even a lot of the soft carriers are really heavy as well. So it's nice to have a carrier now that doesn't hurt my back.

Cute, but can use some changes..
I was so excited about this dog carrier. When I received it, I was surprised that it wasn't as structured as it looks. It comes completely flat, which is okay, just not what I expected. It is definitely smaller than most carriers. The biggest complaint is that it does not have any side zippers! The only zipper is the one on top. This carrier would have been much more practical for me if it did because my pup spends a lot of time in her carriers and uses them as bed sometimes, but she won't be able to get in and out of the bag on her own. Also, the removable "super soft pillow" isn't very super soft, it seems like a piece of cardboard covered in fabric. Overall, it is really cute visual wise, but I'm not sure if I'll keep it, the main reason being that there are no side zippers. Please put the zippers fix the pillow and this will be perfect!
