I wanted to get a pack for my dog that is a mutt that's around the size of a border collie (48 pounds) and the small size fits him fine. I like this pack for a few reasons. The compression straps on the sides of the pockets lets you really secure the load. It also has a bungee to attach stuff to the...

I am pleased with this pack, it came in a timely fashion, is attractive(which we all know is important to our dogs), and appears to be well made. I have a pit bull (med. size) who is all muscle but trim. Although skeptical, after reading other reviews I decided to order the small-its fits perfectly. I did measure him like the instructions on the site said and he measured right on the s/m line. If I had ordered a med. however I feel that it would have been too big and slid around making the pack uncomfortable to carry. The small works great with even a bit of room for adjustment in the straps. My only complaint would be that the packs are a bit on the small side. They are perfect for day hikes but if you want to have your dog carry some gear for a weekend camping trip there would be room for his food, water, etc. but not much else. All in all I, and my dog, are pleased!

My dog always seemed comfortable carrying her Kelty pack, even when fully loaded. Not so with this pack, even when the weight does not exceed that of the Kelty. I believe the problem is the width across the shoulders, between the panniers--5" for the Kelty, only 3.5" for the Mountainsmith. This does not allow the panniers to hang naturally, placing undue pressure on the ribs.
Other than the problem mentioned, the pack appears to be well made. If you have a real narrow bodied dog, this may be the pack for you.
