The backpack is accurate for the description. Looks quite sturdy, made with strong materials, we didn't try it yet, but will do soon (bought it for a flight I'll take with my cat, she is 4 kg so can travel in the cabin, the size is ok for Lufthansa measurements). No strong smell. I like the fact, that it is see-through almost all sides, and the cat can stand, sit, turn around or lie down easily. Thank you!
