Great so far

Verified Buyer Reviewed by HikesWithDoggie from Upstate NY on Wednesday, October 7, 2009
I recently purchased this pack with the concern that it wouldn't fit. I generally consider my ~50 lb. whippet / collie mix a medium-sized dog, but after reading several reviews, I decided to go with the small pack.

Even though he is deep chested, the pack fits my dog very well. When the pack is fairly balanced, it doesn't shift when he walks and runs. The pockets aren't large enough for a multi-day trip by any means, but they would carry a couple days' worth of food and any extra leash/harness stuff. I always carry a water filter and hydration pack, so the dog doesn't carry the water. I don't know how much the pack would hold if he did.

I'm planning a trip into the Adirondack High Peak region this weekend - we'll see how it holds up to steep slopes and boulders.
