If you need to contain your dog on occasion, or often travel the globe with your best friend in tow, then the Impact Case Collapsible Dog Crate will solve all of your problems.

Description and Special Features

Despite being collapsible for easy storage this is definitely not a lightweight solution for containing your dog, as it’s constructed from tough .063 aluminum. Once collapsed it measures a scant eight inches tall, and being made from aluminum means that it’s not going to be too heavy to handle, nor is it going to rust any time soon. If you’ve had to struggle with other so-called collapsible crates in the past, then you can rest easy as the design of the Impact Case ensures that it can be setup and taken down in a matter of seconds.

Particular attention has been paid to the locking mechanism as a marine grade slam latch which automatically locks into place creates a stress-free containment solution for even the fastest dogs off the mark.

Large vent holes ensure your pet receives plenty of ventilation and air flow, as well as allowing them to see whatever is going on around them to reduce stress. A powder coated finish is another clever addition to the design which reflects heat to help keep the animal cooler.

Each corner of the crate is fitted with composite corners to minimize the effect of impacts, and also to enable easier stacking of multiple crates. The grill on the front door is created from 3/8 inch welded bars, with a cross bar included to increase strength and security. Inset spring loaded handles at either end of the crate makes handling and transportation a breeze.


  • Made from tough aluminum while keeping the unit lightweight
  • Plenty of ventilation
  • Fast setup and take down
  • Stackable
  • Comes in a variety of colors
  • Collapsible design allows for easy storage
  • IATA compliant


  • Price is a little higher than other crates of comparable size


There are plenty of compelling reasons to purchase the Impact Case Collapsible Dog Crate, especially if you go on lots of train or plane journeys. However, this crate may not be the best crate to purchase if you need a long term solution. Even though it’s tough, a few customers have said that it has not stood up to long term abuse from dogs suffering from severe anxiety problems.
