This pack is a nice piece of work; well-designed, solid construction, and good functionality. It also looks pretty good! A large pack is not available through STP and I hesitated to buy the medium since I have a large Labrador with a 36" + girth around the chest. My concerns were unfounded; the p...

I have had a couple of these bags for my labs for years now. Very good fit, durable. The two I just bought, and am reviewing, were to convert to saddle bags for our bicycles. They converted very easily, and work great! Best of all, about $100 or more less than "bike" panniers!

I have a WFR, wilderness first responder, backpack in my car. I ordered this to convert my backpack into a two system WFR pack. I am glad I did. This is perfect for organizational purposes into a two system access. If I need to "respond" I will no longer need to dig into my backpack. I can readily open either side and find what I am looking for a quicker response as well as pick it up carry it from my car. When I backpack I can take out the necessities and place them into my backpack from this in car system.

Didn't hold up as well as I would have liked. Only used it a handful of times over the years and it's come apart at the seems. Also seems difficult to balance the weight between the two sides. Always seems to hang to one side or the other.

The backpack is great, we've gone on 3 hikes with it and there have been no problems. I read about the fasteners coming loose, but I haven't had that problem. I gave it four stars because I've only gone on three hikes, so it hasn't proven it's longevity, and I'm not sure what a five star backpack would do. If it could clone another dog and have both dogs carry me through the rest of the hike if I got tired, I would imagine that would be a five star backpack. So far I have yet to see this backpack function in that capacity.

The girth on your dog is over the back and around the deepest part of the underbelly/chest. Picture yourself hugging your dog from above with arms facing the ground while standing facing forward while your dog is facing forward. That's the girth.

Measurement around the belly, however these packs run large. My REALLY big Lab wears a medium, while my other two regular-sized Labs wear smalls.
