Another Day, Another Backpack With A Viewing Portal For Carrying Your Pet Around Town

January 23, 2019


Remember those pet carriers with a bubble viewing portal for carrying your pet around town? "How could I forget, I bought one." Same here, plus in different colors to coordinate with my outfits. Anyway, because competition is the mother of innovation getting angry at a competitor and burning their factory to the ground, these are the pet walking backpacks available from Thanko (5,980 yen, ~$55). They're available in black or white and are suitable for one 8kg (~17.5-pound) cat (PROTIP: if that's not a Maine Coon it should probably be walking to burn some calories), a 6kg (~13-pound) dog, or a shit-ton of gerbils or hamsters. Don't have a real pet? Carry around a stuffed animal! People will think you're weird but that's okay because you are.

Keep going for a bunch more product shots and a short video showing a pet's-eye-view from inside the backpack.








Thanks to v, who agrees this is not the backpack for fish.

  • Put a life like baby doll in it - freak people out.
    Fun times.

  • GeneralDisorder

    That first promo looks like a taxidermied cat.

  • Jenness

    Are we completely sure this is for living dogs? I mean, it's the Japanese.

    I don't think I'm off the mark to say that this is actually for what is pictured - keeping your stuffed dead pet with you at all times.

    In fact, on picture 2 section 4 it even shows a magazine holder - on the inside. Because stuffed pets won't tear the living shit out of magazines like live ones do.

    I'm not even kidding - I think I'm right on this y'all.

    I really hope I'm wrong, but that legit looks like a taxidermy dog in that pack D:

    I approve. Now if pet owners would have the decency to use these then they have me over as a guest, I'd be much obliged. Also, it's a great way to make sure Fluffy is ready for their stint in Trump's "Spaaaaace Forrrrrce."

  • Enkidu98

    Looks like she is bringing a live Porg home for dinner

  • Wooder

    I'm sure the wall-eye view the pet gets is not disturbing at all. Explains the enlarged pupils.
    Also the case must be soundproof so you don't hear there screams for mercy.

  • Bling Nye

    "Goddamnit Karen, when you said 'Let's go walkies!' this is not what I pictured."

  • Ollie Williams

    That dog looks thrilled to be in there.

  • Bling Nye

    Pretty sure it's taxidermied.

  • The_Wretched

    We all need hobbies. I don't fault the Japanese for that.

  • Ollie Williams

    Which would not surprise me in the least coming from Japan.
