The Ruffwear Palisades™ Dog Pack enhances multi-day backcountry adventures with features like removable saddlebags, two collapsible hydration bladders, and a cross-load compression system. Four points of attachment securely connect the saddlebags to the modified Web Master™ Harness frame, ensuring load stability and comfortable weight distribution.

It’s recommended that your dog carry no more than 25% of its body weight in its dog pack. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with a light load and work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing the pack.

Great backpack, useful and great customer service

I bought this pack for my son's 140 pound 2 year old Great Dane and and it fit well and looks pretty sturdy. One day taking him for a walk in the mountains in Utah he spotted some Elk and Finn was off to the races and went tearing through the woods and the pack must have got snagged on something and ripped the back pack portion from the harness. My son found the backpack but the breast plate was missing. I sent an email to customer support and wanting to know what I need to buy to replace and they actually sent my son a whole new backpack. I was surprised and appreciative and will buy another one once my Great Dane puppy grows up. I love that they stood by their product and felt that they wanted my son to have a good experience with their backpack and his dog hiking the trails in Utah. I am a customer for life.

Excellent product!

This pack is well made with quality materials. The fit and finish is great. Fit my Newfie very good. Love the ability to remove the loaded pack and leave the harness on during breaks from hiking.

Great Pack but HUGE

This along with all of Ruffwear's product is extremely well made and durable. We love that that back detach and leave a comfortable harness to use separately. The 2 include water bladders are a great addition. NOTE: This pack is really big. if you don't plan to have Doggo carry many items. Select the next bag size down. Also, please give Pup time to get used to carrying a back pack. I recommend walks around the house with the pack empty, then around the block for a week or so with water bottles half filled before heading out on adventures.

Nice back pack

Very well made, nice with the water bottles Little too bulky for my black lab. I will get the slightly smaller one I think it will be a better fit
