The Palisades Pack by Ruffwear is a durable, full-featured dog backpack that is ideal for multi-day adventures. Made from a rugged 420 denier micro-ripstop nylon, it is a premium back-country dog pack that is loaded with features including detachable saddlebags, two water bladders and a load compression system. If you are looking for something more lightweight & streamlined, or for smaller dogs, check out our other packs including the Approach Pack, the Singletrak Pack and the NEW! Commuter Pack.
Available in bright Red Currant and 3 sizes - see the size chart below which also includes pack capacity.
Great features include:
Removable saddlebags/panniers - the saddlebags attach to the underlying harness system using aluminium & Hypalon fasteners so they can easily be removed at rest stops or river crossings.
Web Master Harness frame - modified with clips to attach the saddlebags, the underlying Web Master Harness has 5 points of adjustability (2 across the belly, and 3 at the chest) to ensure a great fit and pack stability on your dog -click here to see a video on how to adjust the Web Master Harness
BPA-free hydration bladders - Two 1-litre collapsible water bladders are included and fit easily into the side pockets so your dog can carry their own water.
Padded back handle - centered on the back is a handle that you can use to assist your dog up and over obstacles
Two lead attachment points - there is a single anodised, aluminium V-ring in front of the handle and another webbing loop further back
Other key features - cross-load compression system to secure pack contents, side and upper statsh pockets on both sides of the pack, external gear loops and reflective trim for better low-light visibility.
Available in 3 sizes, the Palisades Pack is designed for mid to large sized dogs who are physically fit. If you need a pack for a smaller or less fit dog, check out the Approach Pack, Commuter Pack or Singletrak Pack.
To choose the correct size, measure around your dog's girth/chest. It is important that the pack fit snugly so that it does not shift and stays stable. We do not recommend sizing up just to get extra capacity.
* PLEASE NOTE: it is not recommended that your dog carry more than 20% of their body weight in their dog pack. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with an empty bag and gradually, over a period of days or weeks, work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing the pack.

Our big girl has an amazing ability: to shrug out of almost any harness and dash for the horizon ;p We've been through four different harnesses, every one of which she would find a way to wiggle out of. This one has proven escape proof. And the handle on the back is a helpful extra holding point when she gets over-enthusiastic passing by other dogs and wants to leap over and meet them ;p
Definitely worth every cent.
