Vacationing with your pet isn’t always a walk in the park (although it can definitely lead to a few). Traveling with a kennel can be a challenge when trying to shed weight and save space. Diggs has been on a mission to make it easier since 2018 when it launched the Revol, a safer and more convenient dog crate, followed by the Passenger travel carrier for smaller dogs and cats. However, its latest product, the Enventur, has set a new bar for dog kennels, be it at home or in transit.
We weren’t always able to bring along Fido’s favorite resting area from home, but now we can with the Enventur, an inflatable dog kennel that can fold flat when not being used. Diggs utilizes the same drop-stitch PVC used for inflatable kayaks and paddleboards, which are puncture-proof and waterproof and have been extensively tested to military standards, including standing up to severe temperatures and up to 270lbs of tension and compression. And just like baby products in the U.S., it’s also been tested to CPSIA and EN 71-3 standards, which ensures that no harmful chemicals or metals are used.
Scaffolded by rust-resistant metal hardware, the walls and floor of the kennel are cushioned for comfort and ventilated by large chew-resistant nylon mesh windows — including on the front zippered door. Available in three sizes — small, medium, and large — which range from 13lbs to 20lbs, the Enventur can be tied down inside your car or SUV thanks to its four D-rings. Likewise, the front and back walls have been slanted to the same angle as a standard trunk on a hatchback to maximize space.
The Enventur inflates in around one minute using the Enventur Air Pump (sold separately). If you want to back the Diggs Enventur on Kickstarter, you have until April 30 to enjoy the early-bird prices, which start at $289.
