Reviews - Ruffwear Palisades Dog Pack
My dog and I love this pack....fits snuggly and doesn't slide.Seems to balance well. Takes a couple minutes to fit the harness properly for the first time but then it is set and doubles as a great way to lift your dog up and over boulders and other obstacles. I have heard it's also great for an hyper-active,working breed dog to wear on local hikes and feel like they have a job ..seems to be the case.My dog sees it come out of the closet and gets excited Reflective strips are a nice touch and add visibility at dusk/night
I just bought this pack a couple of weeks ago and it is great. I have an Alaskan Malamute and we go hiking with her all the time. We had boughten a cheaper pack before from a different store and it had gotten so beat up after one trip we couldn't use it anymore. So we decided to spend a little more money and I would can say it was worth the money. It is very durable and has plenty of space to carry anything. The water bags are also great because they save space while allowing my dog to carrier enough water for herself. The ability to also disconnect the bag from the harness makes it much more dog friendly for longer hikes and camping trips. The bag is a little large and may look a little awkward on smaller dogs even with the tightening stablizing straps on the sides. I also believe the measuring is off because when I measured my dogs chest size it was well within the size range for a medium but when she first tried it on, it was to small. We have returned it and gotten a large instead which fits perfect.
The fit was true to the girth measurement guide. I have a 57 pound labradoodle and he fit the medium. The pack's construction looks durable. He was initially not too psyched to be wearing a pack, but got used to it quickly. We did a 12 mile backpacking trip through creeks and a lot of brush and the pack held up as hoped for. No chafing or sore spots. It was nice to be able to unbuckle the pack for rest stops and when he needed to jump through narrow spaces. I anticipate we'll have years of outdoor fun together with this pack. More expensive than a lot of packs out there, but it was notable that my friend's dog's less expensive pack was askew the entire time.
