About 3 years ago I shopped around and ended up buying 2 of these crates. I have 2 dogs, a lab and a border collie. I show them both, and take them to training class weekly. So over the course of the last 3 years these crates have been used and abused, taken up and put down countless times, loaded and unloaded from vehicles, taken to class and put on wet grass, and the covers have even been washed several times. I have been extremely pleased with how well these crates have held up over time. In 3 years of use and abuse the only noticeable issue is that the spring on the mechanism to hold up the top has become a little sticky, so it's harder to use than it once was (but still functional). Other than that, I have had no issues. I should mention that my dogs are well crate trained and don't chew/scratch, so that's one kind of abuse these crates have not suffered, but IMO they would hold up as well as any of these type of crates. They are lightwieght, easy to fold, store nicely, and were a great purchase. They have worked as well as or better than crates my friends have that are 2-3X more expensive.
