Palisades™ Dog Backpack

multi-day backpacking pack

Color

Selected: Red Sumac

The Palisades Pack puts the deepest of backcountry within reach for you and your dog. Our highest-volume pack, it's designed for multi-day treks with roomy saddlebags that host a cross-load compression system for stable, comfortable gear carry. The saddlebags attach securely to a breathable harness chassis, and can be removed at camp to lighten the load for side-excursions.

Multiple pockets and an external daisy chain store and organize your dog's trekking necessities like a sleeping system, food, and even two collapsible hydration bladders that come with the pack.

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

What's New: The Palisades has a long history in the Ruffwear pack lineup, and this season's updates were inspired by customer feedback. More breathability and flexibility with a perforated, molded foam chassis; improved fade-resistance with new materials; updated "flopper stopper" system for easier use when stabilizing saddlebags, new stash pocket configuration.

    Great pack!

    Great quality and comfortable for our puppy. You can tell this pack is very well made and will last years to come. Roomy to fit all our puppies gear. Easy to attach and detach the packs. Our 6 month old golden retriever had zero issues wearing this from the first time we put it on him!

    Lots of room

    I have taken this pack on a small practice run. Not overnight yet. We are working on slowly building up how much weight to carry. So far, the only thing that bothered me was where you have to adjust the harness to fit properly. It isn’t easy to do and it’s a bit annoying. Overall, the quality of the product is great. She got dirty and it was easily cleaned. We went through mud, brush and water. It held up great.

    Great fit.

    I love the versatility of the palisades pack. The design of the panniers is very functional and easy to distribute weight properly. I graduated my dog from the daypack to the palisades and I’m glad I did.
