The Ruffwear Palisades™ 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.

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

This pack and harness system is really great and well built. My only complaint is that the waist strap does not go small enough to fit my German short hair pointer. The chest strap fits very well.

A pack that finally fits

I've got a big German shepherd. Notorious for their deep chests, my 110 pound monster has been a struggle to find a pack for. We finally tried Ruffwear and it fits perfectly with extra room. To top it off it's well made.

Actually I have not yet used this item so this review is on what I’ve observed and what I hope for. First, construction: very well made and sturdy. Second, function: I love that the bags clip off the harness. The included collapsible water bottles are sturdy yet lightweight. I plan to get my dog used to the harness first and then the bags and then more weight. I’ve got five days to prepare her before our first overnight together so I hope she’s a trooper!
