If you know our pack, you know that we are always on the go. Whether it’s camping, hiking, or a day at the beach, if we’re going, we try our best to take the pups with us too. I’m so excited to share this innovative product with you guys. It’s made things so much easier for us on our travels. I introduce to you, the Wrapsit soft pet crate.
What is a Wrapsit?
I’m so glad you asked! Wrapsit is a soft pet crate that attaches seamlessly to your standard folding camping chair. You know, the one you’re bringing with you everywhere already? Ball games, barbecues, camping trips, concerts. They’re the most portable, most common chair out there and the Wrapsit makes them 100x more valuable for pet owners.
Are They a Pain to Install Though?
I was honestly prepared for a pain in the butt installation, but the Wrapsit was not complicated to set up at all! The initial installation on my camp chair took me maybe 5 minutes. It comes with super easy to follow instructions that made it a breeze.
The best part is that you only have to install it once! Once the crate is attached to your chair, you can keep it on there so it’s always ready to use. Your chair just folds right up like normal and the Wrapsit stays put. Bonus… once folded, the Wrapsit also becomes a carry bag for your chair. No more stuffing your chair back in a bag when you’re done using it. They’ve really thought of everything!
How We Use the Wrapsit
We’ve used our Wrapsit all over, but I especially love using it at RV campgrounds for Roxie. She’s great off-leash, but most campgrounds have leash laws. The Wrapsit solves two problems simultaneously. First, it gives Roxie a place to hang out there she’s “contained,” therefore appeasing campground hosts. There’s even a metal D ring right over the opening where you can attach a leash if you need to.
A Shady Reprieve
Secondly, the Wrapsit also provides Roxie with a comfy escape from the sun. Especially this time of year, shade is at a premium at campgrounds. We try our best to pick sites that LOOK like they should be relatively shaded, but it’s really hard to do. More often than not, we’re booking online with very little information and basically picking a campsite blindly. If we’re lucky, there’s one tiny thumbnail of the site that you can squint at and attempt to analyze for things like grade, space, shade, etc.
Roxie gets overheated easily in full sun, so having a cozy place for her to nap and relax after hitting the trails where she isn’t getting scorched is HUGE! The Wrapsit has been a perfect solution.
Our Favorite Features
You can tell that the designers of this crate spent a lot of time thinking about every little detail. We already mentioned the ease of use, the shade element, and the leash attachment. Some of our other favorite features are the wide opening that allows your dog an easy entry and exit, the waterproof bottom that keeps the inside of the crate nice and dry, even on wet grass, and the ventilation. The ventilation on this is better than any of the other dog shades and tents that we have used in the past. Every side is a super durable mesh, so you get great airflow to help keep your pet nice and cool, even on warmer days.
Who Would We Recommend the Wrapsit to?
The Wrapsit is PERFECT for an owner with a small/medium dog. We primarily use it for Roxie, who is smaller girl, about 13 lbs. She’s long and lanky, but even with her stature, she has plenty of room to move around in there. Obviously, because the crate attaches to a camp chair, there are inherent size limitations. That being said, it is a lot roomier than you think. The interior of the crate gives you 5 cubic feet of space, plenty of room for her to lie down, sit up, stand, and move around. I think Ringo (who’s about 22 lbs) could probably even fit in the Wrapsit, though then Roxie would have to give up her coveted comfy spot, which is not going to happen.
Wrapsit is a Great Solution for:
Picnics in the park
… Anywhere you bring your chair!
