Great Pack Overall

Reviewed by Dog Hiker from Southeast on Sunday, January 13, 2013
Bought this for our 40-some lb dog having read it runs very large, and this size does indeed fit him well. Got it with the goal of backpacking, but we have only tried it on a 5-mile day hike so far. While other reviewers have replaced weak buckles, the pack we got has buckles that hold up to some serious abuse. I guess we got lucky or some changes have recently been made? In any case, the D-ring (or whatever shape it was) that you clip the leash on to snapped off during one excited leap early in the hike. In retrospect, it was pretty flimsy and we should have seen that coming. You may want to reinforce or replace that clip if your dog gets excited and lunges. Pack seems sturdy and is roomy enough for a couple day's food and water. Contents only got somewhat damp on the very bottom from an impromptu romp in a creek.
