    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Campingirl from the AT in TN on Thursday, June 1, 2017
    Seems to be well made. I have a 23# terrier/schnauzer mix and the XS is perfect size. I haven't loaded it yet for a trail, but unloaded it stays in place.

    Only change I'd like to see is that the body portion be mesh for better cooling/air flow.
  • great pack

    we love ruff wear stuff and this pack is no exception...I only gave 4 stars because i have not used it on a long hike yet and it could be a little easier to adjust and put on
  • Nice but . . .
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Fathomthat from Central IL on Thursday, May 11, 2017
    It was too large (XS) for our boy and was returned. STP didn't have the XXS we needed.

    The quality and construction appeared to be great.

  • “My dog is 35#, chest is 21" in circumference, neck 15" in circumference and she is 21" from shoulders to tail. Would a small or x-small ruffwear pack fit her?

    Thanks ”
    Asked by Maleny the hiker from Arizona on 3/26/2017 6:28:10 PM
    • Hi Maleny,
      The harness for this pack is based on the Web Master Harness, based on that and the circumference of your dogs chest size at 21", the XS would be the best pack for her. I hope it helps and works well for you!

    • The only size we have available is XS (Girth 17-22).

  • “Hello,I'd like to have two informations about this item, if possible:
    -will be avaliable the size M in a short time?
    -can you ship it to Italy?
    Asked by ceskio from italy on 3/14/2017 8:53:00 AM
    • Yes, we do ship to Italy. Due to the nature of the closeout business, we often receive items in limited quantities. Therefore, popular sizes and colors can sell out quickly. Occasionally we are able to reorder a product, but closeout items are typically unable to be reordered. We suggest signing up for the My Updates as the best way to monitor incoming products. You will receive email notifications of our newest stock items.
