How much weight can this pack hold? Hoping for 2lbs per side so my 65 lb doberman can carry her tent and water while backpacking.
Answer by ChewyJun 26, 2017
We recommend no more than 10% of a dog's weight be used, evenly distributed between the two saddle bags. A 65 pound dog should have no more than 6.5 pounds in the saddle bags so 3.25 pounds in each.

What are the pocket dimensions? I am wondering if my dog's collapsible water bowl will fit.
Answer by ChewyApr 26, 2018
The measurements of the pockets in the Small DayPak are 8.5 x 5.5 x 2 inches, the Medium measures 11.5 x 6 x 4 inches and the Large measures 12.5 x 7 x 4.5 inches.

my dog has to wear a harness for walks, not just a collar... he has a harness that his leash clips to in the front.... will this interfere with his harness? wondering if it'd be worth it to make sure it allows for harness use
Answer by ChewyApr 13, 2018
The harness has a front chest clip, it may block the harness ring. The DayPak does have a ring on the back to attach a leash.

Do you sell the XL?

Mishaps Mid-Hike

Used these several times to go hiking with my dogs. For the most part they function as they should. I bought one in each different color. The first time I used the blue one on my husky, the D-ring where your leash clips, broke mid-hike. Unfortunately, my dog realized he was no longer on leash and quickly got far enough ahead of me to the point I had to chase him. Not good on a trail! I figured I would give the backpacks another try. After all, the green one still worked perfectly fine. I put it on my husky and we went hiking again. I had no issues until we got onto a busier part of the trail. Then the D-ring broke again. Such a shame. They look really good on the dogs.

3 years strong

I've been using this pack daily for over 3 years now. I have the blue bag, and my dog carries about 7lbs every day (water and food). He didn't like the over the head aspect when we first started, but he's used to it now and gets excited when I pick it up. The only thing complaint I have is that the front chest strap has rolled up and no longer lays flat against my dogs chest. He doesn't seem to notice, but it drives me nuts. I do have to keep the straps tight or will rotate around him, but it's only a few seconds each morning to tighten. It's got two tears in the mesh, but for 3 years of use, that's pretty good! My dog is now a fully grown 70lb American staffordshire terrier/boxer (from 52lbs when we adopted him) and this backpack is perfect for him.

Not a great product

First this pack doesn't have the front and back labeled. I tried accessing the video with the girl explaining the pack but it doesn't work, it just sits there and spins...it's not a very good fit for my dog, I forget what size I ordered and the size of the pack isn't marked on the pack itself. Some of these packs and harnesses are easy to use and some aren't which is important as your dog tries to wiggle out. This one is not very easy to use.

Whoever made this pack doesn't have a dog

This is impractical for dogs - you have to slip it over their head and get a foot through in one go. It should have had an additional clasp around the neck to avoid this. For the price, probably wouldn't be too hard to alter on your own. It's otherwise a decent pack with good capacity and I like the ventilation on the back. Just not practical for easy use.

Dog/puppy pack

Works great, my dog is now able to carry stuff needed for when on a hike, the water container, water, and some treats

Doesn't hold up

We've used this backpack, on our 9 month old puppy, 3 times. It's ripping where the d ring and handle are and she's off leash most of the hike, so it's not even like she's pulling on it. I'm very unhappy but at least it wasn't too expensive. Overall, this is not a good backpack and I would not recommend it.

Do not buy!

I do not recommend this for big dogs or long hikes. On My 70lb Shepard mix It slid all over the place without anything in It. Also the chest strap is maybe supposed to connect to the rest but there are no directions at all and no Velcro on the strap itself?? Either way, poor product and wish I would’ve just bought a more expensive one than going for the sale.

Great pack for a great price!

For the price, this pack is perfect! We've used it a half dozen times or so without issue. It does tend to slip and slide a bit, but once you get the fit right for your pup it seems to stay put. Whether you're doing a short or long day hike, it has space for plenty of treats/water bowls/poop bags. I was also skeptical as to whether it would fit our 70lb, barrel-chested doggo, but the large works fine.

Great for carrying beer

I bought this with the intention of my dog carrying his poo and water on our runs, but so far I have just used it to put beer in for him to carry to the dog park. It works great for this. Seems like you need to put equal weight on each side so it doesn’t tilt under their belly. Maybe I’m not using it correctly

Got this for our new english springer spaniel puppy. He looks ridiculously cute in it, but I'm a might biased lol. We purchased because even with 2 mile walks and hours at the dog park he would still be "springing" around and getting into trouble. He just has that much energy. So I got this to hopefully not only give him a job but tucker him out. It works PERFECTLY. I put less than 10% of his body weight in the packs, 1 regular sized water bottle on each side. It kept the weight perfectly distributed and BONUS was just heavy enough to keep him from jumping, but not from running around and having fun. It is still a tad big on him, but he's a puppy and has lots of growing to do. We got him a medium and it fits him cinched up all the way. Just have some dangling straps to worry about. I cant wait till covid is over and we can start our long hiking/camping weekends and he can carry his own water and poo bags! <3
