Default Best travel cage

Hi thinking of investing in a travel cage for when I go away and also for shows to pop my little princess in when we go away. She has a travel carrier but going away for two weeks and looking for a travel cage
Any ideas?

I have always just used a 10 gallon tank (despite how horrifically small it is) as it's light and escape proof. However, there are larger bins available if you choose to use them. One in particular I like is the 113 qt latch box by Hefty. I'll link it below

I've got a 48L Really Useful Box, meshed on the lid, which will be pressed into service as a travel cage next time it's needed. It used to be part of her main cage, before we upgraded to an Alexander.

I use the Large Wire Pets at Home cage. It's ok but I can imagine most hamsters being able to escape quite easily (it's flimsy) from, although luckily Larry-Jasper isn't bothered about escaping (as I learnt last summer when I was on holiday my mum left the cage open (she was petsitting) and Jasper was still there in the morning). Do bear in mind Larry-Jasper is a dwarf and he has a lot of enrichment.

I've found the Kios cage which would be ok for a Syrian for a travel cage and would be great for a Dwarf. It's about 70 by 50cm. Here's the link.
