Disappointed as time has passed

I love the concept of this product. The idea is that it should be extremely versatile in any situation (I take my dog to work, on hikes, on the train, etc. because he is training to be a service dog), and it is. But beware that it's not going to be the right choice for you if you have a big dog, or a dog with a big face. Arlo is 80lbs and his snout takes up all the empty space in the bowl. It's so big that the sides of the bowl will collapse to accommodate him reaching the water. As a consequence, the water falls out of the bowl and onto whatever surface it is on. The bowl is not designed for bigger dogs. I should have taken some other review I saw here when I was purchasing it seriously. I'm bummed! I still love ruffwear and recommend them to everyone, but this product truly disappointed over time. I should add that the material's water resistance has faded with time. If I could exchange it or get my money back, I would! Glad I chose to get it on sale.

So handy to always have on hand. On the trail or in the city. Packs away and dries fast

Water on the go

The Trail Runner Bowl is perfect for water on the go. We take it mountain biking for quick water stops for our dog "Buttons". It's small enough to stash in a pocket for quick access. When the bowl comes out Buttons knows it's time for a drink.

Great little bowl to pack in a pocket

This bowl is great for packing in a pocket and taking along on a hike. My only critique is that the opening is a little small and our GSP has a large and pointy nose so it's a little hard for her to get into the bowl more. But I like how small it is for packing up for on the go. (We have a slightly bigger bowl we keep in the car, that has a wider opening, but is not close to being as compact for hiking.)
