Sleepypod Introduces Go Bag for Pet Parents




(PRESS RELEASE) PASADENA, CA — Sleepypod, a Pasadena-based company known for redefining pet products, introduces Sleepypod Go Bag. Sleepypod Go Bag is built for pet travel, but clever enough for human travel. It organizes pet and human travel essentials in a go anywhere bag.

“Pet travel is on the rise thanks to pet-friendly hotels, attractions, and workspaces,” says Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder and lead product designer. “Since pets rely upon their owners for everything from food to protection, getting to a destination is not without challenges.”

Leung believes Sleepypod Go Bag will appeal to on the go pet owners who are looking for a simple way to organize a trip with a pet.                                           

“Adding a pet to the travel equation requires an extra element of organization,” Leung continues. “Traveling with a pet is not as easy as grabbing a leash before heading into a car or onto an airplane.

“The list of pet travel essentials becomes more complex and lengthy depending on the travel method and length of stay, so a good travel organizer can help make for a happier, hassle-free experience.

“When on the road with your pet, Sleepypod Go Bag makes it easier to find what you need and where you need it,” Leung concludes.


Sleepypod Go Bag’s tapered profile makes it comfortable for cross-body carrying, while the streamlined grab handle amplifies on-the-go convenience. Travel is made easier by two mini packing cubes and an insulated food pouch. Thoughtful features include gusseted side pockets for water bottles or cell phone, an exterior utility ring for hanging a leash or flashlight, exterior zippered pocket for easy access items, padded main compartment and an interior pocket for separating documents or cradling a tablet/computer, and an interior lanyard for attaching keys.

As with Sleepypod’s award-winning pet carriers, the exterior of the Sleepypod Go Bag and its packing components are made from heavy duty, luggage grade ballistic nylon.
