Sleepypod Go Bag

You must leave your house in a hurry because of an emergency and you find yourself scrambling to grab the essentials for yourself and your pet. You are traveling with your pet on vacation and need to pack supplies for the trip. Your pet needs to stay at the veterinarian for a couple of days and he asks you to bring food, treats, medication, and toys. Each of these scenarios required providing and packing supplies for your pet. 

We've read from many people about having a container of some sort for emergencies for your pets. Some people recommend a clear box, a large ziplock bag, or a notebook. There is a need to have a container where you can to carry important papers, food, water, medication, and other items. Sleepypod has designed the Go Bag for this reason.

The Go Bag is built for pet travel, but is clever enough for human travel. You can organize pet (and human) essentials in this stylish and functional bag.

Sleepypod® Go Bag

The Sleepypod Go Bag has a tapered profile that makes it comfortable to carry. The strap is designed for cross-body carry with a streamlined grab handle to assist with on-the-go convenience. The Go Bag includes two mini packing cubes and an insulated food pouch. There is a front pocket where important items such as passports, tickets, and IDs can be stored. There is a large interior pocket that can separate documents or hold a laptop/tablet. There are additional pockets and an interior key lanyard for easy access to small items. The luggage-grade exterior is easy to clean and resists tearing and stains.

Features of the Sleepypod Go Bag are

  • 2 gusseted side pockets (cell phones or water bottles)
  • large padded main compartment
  • top double zipper pulls for easy access
  • tether lanyard for hanging items like keys
  • 2 mini cubes with zipper closure and interior pocket (great for canned food)
  • 1 insulated food bag with Velcro roll top (great for items that need to remain cool)
  • stable, flat base
  • tapered profile for comfortable cross-body carrying
  • streamlined grab handle
  • adjustable shoulder strap with comfort padding
  • single zipper front pocket
  • large utility "D" ring for hanging items like leash or flashlight
  • luggage grade exterior

The Sleepypod Go Bag is 16 inches tall x 14 inches wide x 6 inches deep and weighs 1.2 pounds. The Mini Cubes are 4.5" x 6.5" x 4.5" and weigh 0.25 lbs. The Insulated Food Bag when opened is 13" x 7" x 4.5" and when rolled closed is 7" x 7" x 4.5" and weighs 0.45 pounds.

The Sleepypod Go Bag is available in 7 colors:
  • Glacier Silver
  • Robin Egg Blue
  • Strawberry Red
  • Jet Black
  • First Blush
  • Olive
  • Charcoal

Several of the colors for the Go Bag match the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed if you're the type of person who likes to match when you travel. As you can see from the photo above, Mom Paula used the Go Bag to carry important items when she attended the conference, so this bag can be an ideal solution for pets and humans.

You can clean the Go Bag by wiping with a damp cloth. You can use a mild detergent, if needed, but make sure you test on a inconspicuous area to ensure color fastness. The outer material is tear and stain resistant luggage-grade ballistic nylon and the interior is water-resistant polyester.

Our Personal Experience

I've used the Go Bag multiple ways. Both Truffle and Brulee needed to stay overnight at the veterinary hospital a couple of years ago and I was able to put their food, treats, blanket, and special papers in the Go Bag for their stay. I've used the Go Bag when I traveled to conferences to keep my papers, phone, water, and computer in a convenient and comfortable location when walking around. I donated a Go Bag to a friend who lives on the coast and frequently must evacuate due to hurricanes. Dudley is a senior poodle who has special food, treats, and medication that need to be stored in a convenient location that his owner can quickly grab and take with her when they evacuate. This is a great all-in-one bag that can be used for both pets and humans and is of the same quality of the other Sleepypod products I've used.

  1. That would be super handy if we had to evacuate!

    The Florida Furkids

  2. That bag would really come in handy if we ever had to run down to our underground parking garage when the tornado sirens go off!

    Great giveaway and such a cute model!

  3. Oh this is a cool bag for all our stuff if we have to leave and go someplace!

  4. Those are nice! It's always wise to have a go bag on the ready!!!

  5. I didn't know Sleepypod made these bags! I love how functional they look, yet stylish at the same time. We've had to evacuate a few times in the past and I keep emergency kits for each of my pets in the trunk of my car. Using a bag like this would for sure be an upgrade, currently I just use storage totes.

  6. Sleepy Pod continues to evolve! Nice bag. I didn't realize the bag had so much space inside until watching the video demonstration. I looks like it's durable and of high quality. As you mentioned it is great for travel and would make a fine gift idea for pet parents.

  7. It's a really versatile, nice bag! It's good for on the go trips and can be used for non pet purposes as well.

  8. I LOVE this bag!! Now that we live in Florida, which is hurricane territory, I would use it to create an emergency Go bag if we get evacuated or we just want to leave town before the storm hits. It's hurricane season! I would love to win this bag, its so useful and it's gorgeous too.

  9. A useful bag for us earthquake prone New Zealanders. I need one for each cat!

  10. The Go Bag is just pawesome, and we love ours. It has SO many uses, even for humans, and you can never have too many of them.

  11. Having everything that you need easily on hand and packed up is SO important for so many different situations. It's too bad that this isn't open in Canada hahaha but I wish good luck to all those who are entering the giveaway!

  14. That looks like a wonderful bag! I would keep it packed for a go bag in case of an emergency as well as a travel bag for my dogs.

  15. This looks like a great multi-functional (and attractive) bag. Of course, the most important use is to provide for our cats in an emergency.

  16. I need to tell my meowmy about this product. We now live in FloryDa and she was saying just the other day that in case of a hurricane, or a tornado... or invasion by Aliens, we need to be ready to run. I bet that purrty bag would be ideal for me in pawtikular. Love, Dori

  17. I love that they are expanding their products line. It's super useful to have just in case since you never know.

  18. I would use it if I needed to travel with my kitty.

  19. Perfect for traveling with my kitty

  20. I would use this for vet trips!

  21. We would use it as a travel bag when going to the vet.

  22. I would use the Sleepypod Go Bag for travel and vet appointments.
