This is the second version of the Palisades pack that my dog(s) and I have purchased. The first version we bought 7 years ago was great, and this version is even better!
The packs are sturdy and hold up well. Points of failure are minimum and do not substantially impact the use of the pack, and this new version seems to have addressed the minor flaws in the previous version (mesh top that tore, clips connecting the pack to the harness, fasteners to keep saddlebags stable).
I love this brand and this product!
