Camping and Outdoors April 2, 2021
When out exploring the great outdoors with your four-legged friend you want to ensure that all your gear is organised and ready to hand, don’t waste time digging around in your backpack for poo bags or doggy treats when pup can carry their own gear with the Front Range Day Pack.
This lightweight harness comes in three colours, Blue Moon, Aurora Teal and Red Clay, in sizes Extra Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large, there is a handy size guide on the website to help you get the perfect fit. The Front Range Day Pack uses Ruffwear’s signature radial cut saddlebags on the padded harness, letting your dogs share the load. The belly strap can be adjusted for the perfect fit, ensuring the pack is stable and close to the dog’s body whether they plod along next to you or go zooming off in exploration. The saddlebag geometry forms a passive compression system that is formfitting, efficiently spreading the load carrying, the outer shell is made from durable 300 denier polyester ripstop (bluesign approved), with closed cell foam padding on the harness for comfort.
There are three leash attachment options, a V-ring and a tow-loop are both located on the back of the harness, whilst a reinforced webbing loop on the chest can be used for redirecting eager dogs that pull when on leash. The cut of the harness and location of the pockets puts the weight at the front of the dog’s body in a comfortable position, the zip up pockets keeps everything safe whilst dog roams about and the internal stretch mesh pockets keep things organised and secure. There is a low-profile paddle handle for additional control and can also be used to lift and assist pup on harder points of the trail. The reflective detailing helps your dog be seen in low light but for added visibility there is a light loop on the chest that can be used for attaching Ruffwears The Beacon Safety Light (sold separately £26.95). The only thing worth noting is this day pack isn’t machine washable so if the explorations get messy it will need to be hand washed with a mild detergent, but it will probably still be easier than washing the dog. £99.95
