I use a SleepyPod Air in the car and on planes, and have since Loki was a puppy. (For a short time, I tried a sherpa carrier in the car. Loki could see me through the mesh and barked the whole time. Needless to say, I sent it back.) He is quite happy in the Sleepy Pod Air. I think it is better than the round one because he can stretch out. I don't know if he can stand up all the way because he won't show me but I do know that he can turn around. He jumps up in the car and goes in head first then turns around to face me as I zip him up. The mesh is darker and on the ends and top so he really can't look at me. He never makes a sound unless he whines because he needs to potty. Sometimes I want him to make noise so I know he is OK.
We do a 4 hour drive to my sister's frequently. I usually stop about half way for a potty break and a walk around. I also usually give him just a bit of water and small treat but not enough that he will need to go again soon. He does great.
The other thing I like about the SleepyPod Air is that it looks like a duffle bag. Since I won't leave him in the car by himself, I just carry the SleepyPod into the rest area with me. No one knows I even have a dog. It is also really well made.
