Description

  • A great everyday pack with excellent performance, fit, and functionality.
  • Attached saddlebags with lightweight streamlined, go-fast shape.
  • Weight-forward saddlebag design for ideal load-carrying position.
  • Trail-savvy details like waterproof zippers, high-visibility reflective trim, external gear loops, and durable construction.
  • Comfort-fit Web Master™ Harness frame ensures good structure, stability, and load dispersion.
  • Five-point adjustable fit and extended size range to accommodate dogs of all sizes.
  • FIT TIPS: The pack's harness should have an all-around snug fit for a stable load and to prevent movement or shifting of the saddlebags. Be sure that each saddlebag has an equal and balanced load.
    In-between sizes?: Choose the smaller pack for a lighter load and less bulk. Please do not use saddlebag capacity as your only sizing consideration; use the girth fit for best results.

Nice pack, the XXS fits my hyper 13 lb papillon mix nicely. I measured my 15 lb corgi mix and he should have fit in this, but he didn't...so be sure to measure your dog carefully and order a size with a bit of margin on either side. We are careful not to load the pack more than ~20% of our dog's body weight, so it's just a bit of kibble and his collapsing bowls. Nice way to get him to do a bit of extra work on our backpacking trips.

This ruffwear pack is perfectly designed, it is made from durable materials with equal emphasis on fit and function. I can't say enough good things about it. We ordered the Cesar Milan dog whisperer pack last year because it was a little cheaper, after one use the straps kept backing out and becoming too loose, this design flaw has been worked out by the geniuses at ruffwear. The cesar milan pack had a more awkward fit, the zippers would stick, and it ultimately broke after about 15 uses. Comparably the ruffwear pack is about 10 times the product for slightly more money. My dog is a very active australian cattle dog mix, he has an unusual build at about 50 lbs and 18 inches tall at the shoulder. I followed ruffwears sizing tips and the small pack fits perfectly. We use it a few times a week as an added challenge on daily walks, and to pack water on longer hikes on the weekend. At first I didn't like the step through harness, but it is easy to put on and now I enjoy the added security of the single piece chest piece. This pack is awesome, buy it!

I LOVE this backpack! At first I felt ridiculous - it's a backpack for a dog, I mean really - but now my GSP carries her own water, feels like she's an important part of whatever is going on, and the added weight helps tire her out faster. She loves it, gets very very excited and even holds her paw up immediately to help put it on easily. I recommend it to everyone who asks! The quality is absolutely there - she's rough on (we let her run off leash with it) and it does extremely well. We see a little shifting from time to time but as long as the weight is evenly distributed then it stays in place. We've taken her on trails and out to a few farms to run so it's been tested in both rural and urban environments.

Great dog pack. I ordered the wrong size and it did not fit so I printed the return label & UPS sent it back, no charge, no problem. I explained to Zappos my mistake & I received the new right size dog pack in 3 days and it fits great.

Enzo is a 10 lb. yellow mix. The xxs fit him just right. This pack when on the dog is very balanced and appears comfortable for him. The quality is very good. Picked the blue for visibility. It is reflective too. Handle handy when helping to climb boulders & logs or if a big dog comes up to give him a hard time. For such a small dog, I would wish that the profile was slimmer.
