Fantastic dog pack, well balanced.

I love the Mountainsmith dog packs! We ordered this one and a different brand at the same time, and the Mountainsmith clearly outshines the other brand. It is situated well forward, placing the weight over the dog's shoulders rather than their back. It is well balanced, staying put on the skinny shoulders of my tall, lean Husky even with very little load inside. Lots of room in the pack for dog food, travel bowls, water, and doggy pick-up bags. I love the compression straps - if you don't have the bags full, you can tighten them down to keep the contents in place. This makes it easier for your dog to squeeze around rocks and bushes, and keeps everything from bouncing around and making the dog uncomfortable. The pack looks brand new even after being through all kinds of briars and scrub brush. We replaced the flimsy fleece strap covers with our own, and have had no problems with the straps rubbing behind the dog's elbows. We are very happy with this pack!
