The new Front Range Day Pack by Ruffwear is a streamlined, comfortable dog backpack that is a great choice for day hikes and front-country adventures!

Built on the popular Front Range Harness, the Front Range Day Pack is Ruffwear's newest dog pack and is perfect for days out exploring.  It has a front loading design that means the saddlebags sit comfortably towards the shoulders.  It has an integrated padded harness and belly strap with 5 points of adjustability which gives it exceptional fit and pack stability. 

It also has 3 leash attachment options:  a V-ring and a tow loop on the back, plus a reinforced webbing loop on the chest that can be used alongside training techniques to redirect dogs that may pull a bit on the leash.  There is also a back handle.

My dog can carry his own water now!

We've done a couple of hikes/walks now with increasing load (now 5kg on a 33kg dog) and this pack is brilliant. The L/XL is a great fit on my shepherd with plenty of room for water, booties, poo bags, all the essentials. The material is rugged enough that squeezing between boulders/trees has been no issue so far. Love this product and would recommend, however note that the next size down (M) is only half the capacity.

Front Range Day Pack

Love the Front Range Day Pack and the size is perfect but I find it very difficult to adjust the straps but maybe they're tight for a reason. An improvement would also be to have reflective strips on the top of the pack also?

A little smaller than I hoped

I bought it after I measured the lengths for my dog, and I found myself really having to lengthen it to the very end of the straps to get it to fit my dog. I found the packs even though it states 10L was a bit smaller than I hoped for
