This bed is great for travel or if you just need a soft cushioned spot for outdoors. The material is durable and so soft and comfy. You can tell it's well made and of high quality, like all the gear from Ruffwear. At some point I will probably buy it in the other colour as well. (had a hard time deciding because both prints are so eye catching and love that it hides leftover dirty paw prints, too!). The fabric looks like it will stay nice and cool for summer adventures as well. It packs up so easily and my pup just loves it!
