While trying to give her dog Moqui a drink, Liz emptied half of her water bottle into a plastic bag and held it while the Rhodesian Ridgeback took a few slurps. Moqui then walked away panting, and Liz was left holding the bag—she couldn't set it down without losing the water and she didn't want to dump what was left back into her water bottle. "You need to do something about this," Liz said, challenging Patrick to develop a solution.
Patrick Kruse was the right person to ask. As a kid he constructed packs for his dog out of army surplus gas mask bags, using them on backpack trips in Northern California's Trinity Alps. As a young adult, he sailed for several years as crew on charter boats in the Caribbean and Central America where being resourceful was a necessity. Patrick's interest in kayaking lead him to start Salamander Paddle Gear acquainting him with numerous technical fabrics. With this unique mix of knowledge and experience Patrick developed The Quencher™, the original collapsible food and water bowl for dogs—and the solution to Liz and Moqui's drinking problem.
In 1994, after 16 months of research and development and product testing, Ruff Wear made its enthusiastically welcomed debut at an Outdoor Retailer trade show with The Quencher™. Since, it has won praise from thirsty dogs and been in a range of publications. "They were impressed with the simplicity, quality and function of The Quencher™ and wanted to see what other solutions we could come up with," Patrick says.
Ruff Wear now offers a full line of innovative performance dog gear. In addition to collapsible bowls, the company produces a full line of dog-related equipment designed to enhance the interaction between humans and dogs. A brief listing of gear includes dog packs, dog boots, dog harnesses, dog coats, and dog life jackets.
"We want to enhance the experience of all dogs and their two legged companions," Patrick says. Besides those who are active with their pets, trainers, working dogs, Search and Rescue teams, Canine Companions and Guide Dog Users all have become Ruff Wear supporters and each present specific challenges in product development. "My needs pale in comparison to those who depend on their dogs for assistance," he says. "The specific tasks and companionship dogs provide is really incredible. It puts a smile on my face when people appreciate the simple design approach that we build into our gear to address complex tasks."
"We’ve always been oriented toward products that will enhance and assist the interaction between dogs and humans. And that has always been and will continue to be our motivation."
Ruffwear Palisades Pack™
We've been using this pack for many years - I might have an older version than the one here. It is very durable & secure, plus it seems super comfortable even when packed full. My dog isn't a puller, so I haven't had the leash attachment issues that other reviewers have. After all the use (we haven't been gentle) and washings, I haven't had any issues at all. There is tons of room, more than you would need for dog stuff alone while on backpack adventures. The adjustable straps make the pack work for a wide range of doggy sizes. My dog and his friends who have borrowed the pack adjusted almost instantly. Totally worth the money.

We love our Palisades pack! Even though it is larger than we really need, we bought it for the water bladders and removable saddle bags. As with all of the Ruffwear we've bought, it is heavy-duty and made to last, even with our rough & tumble, brush-diving setter boy! In response to the other review that said it didn't hold up, (a) it sounds like they are using the fabric loop rather than metal leash attachment and (b) Ruffwear stands behind their product 100%. The only problem we've ever had (with a leash) was replaced with a smile, no questions asked.
I'd also recommend: More Ruffwear!

I was so disappointed to have to return this item. I have a 30# dog who fits the measurements for the small of this pack. I love the removable packs and the harness fits like a dream. But the bags are way too big for my dog to carry around. They take up about 3/4 of his body! I'm going to try the Approach, but I'm not going to like it nearly as much without the extra features like the removable pack and cinch straps.

Initially my husband and I loved this harness and saddlebags for our Golden Retriever. The fit was easily adjusted and it took no time for him to get used to the weight/fit. Sadly, the ring where his leash attaches to the harness has already started to fray and I don't think it will hold out much longer. For the price we were very disappointed by the lack of quality.
