Reptariums are a fabric mesh and a pvc frame. They are light weight and are fairly cheap. I use a couple of them havent had any issues with them. It is really just a different type of cage that is cheaper than a metal and screen cage.

They are neither all good or all bad. I use them for temporary cages either for fast growing juveniles, travel, or outdoor basking cages, etc. Some people have problems with the zippers wearing out. They do need a bit more care. Some people who free range their feeders find chew holes in them eventually. Some people claim that the mesh is so heavy it reduces the amount of UV penetration from overhead lights. I don't know about that one.

I use Reptariums for all sorts of small critters as I do some wildlife rehab. I've housed montane chams in them for months and had no real issues with them. I do like the option to wash the mesh covers!
