There's no better way to spend a weekend than hiking with your dog, but it can get a little tiresome hauling gear for both you and Cosmo. Fortunately, now your pooch can carry his own food, water, and toys--and some of your gear as well--with this Mountainsmith dog pack. Available in three sizes, the pack is outfitted with an independently adjustable fleece-lined chest harness that fits most breeds comfortably, so your dog will barely notice the pack while walking or running. In addition, the pack offers plenty of storage space, with two large main compartments, zippered side pockets with rain flaps, and an internal valuables pocket. And thanks to the pack's D-ring attachment point, you can attach the leash directly to the pack for easier hiking. As a result, the Mountainsmith dog pack is perfect for everything from all-day and overnight outings to extended trips into town. Other features include a single haul handle on top of the pack, a mesh pocket along the top for stashing the leash, compression straps, and reflective trim.



The pack features an adjustable fleece-lined chest harness that fits most breeds comfortably.

I ordered this backpack for my Wheaten Terrier after watching Cesar Milan (The Dog Whisperer). If you have a dog that needs to get out some extra energy, this is a good solution. You're walking your dog every day anyway, so let him or her carry some water, the waste bags, your cell phone, and your keys. You will enjoy the walk more, and he will tire a little more quickly. I would recommend you start with nothing in the backpack, just to let your dog get used to it. Then you can gradually add more weight. Just follow the recommeded weight restrictions for your breed of dog.

I would not use this pack for long backpacking trips. The pack does not use a y-yolk over the shoulders and does NOT place the bulk of the weight over the dogs shoulders. I do like the accessories (waterbowl, food bowl, thermal mat, and leash). However, I have to say I'm taking my Mountainsmith bag to a seamstress to convert the chest harness to a y-yolk and bring the bag more forward to put more weight over the front shoulders.

Dog owners with dogs who have long backs or a breed who have a tendency to get hip dysplasia later in life should NOT consider this backpack.

Mountainsmith should be ashamed for selling a product like this that increases the likelihood of causing lasting harm to dogs.

I listened to reviewers about the size to order and it was perfect! I ordered a medium for my 80+lbs weimaraner, 60lbs Boxer and 70lbs boxer mix. It fits them all and is awesome. We use it to tire them out more on walks. I look forward to camping with them at some point with it. There's lots of room in the pockets. Great buy!

First Impression: Dad bought me the Mountain Smith Dog Pack to go on hikes in the mountains. Originally he bought me a Large because it said it was for 80-110 pound dogs. The pack was way too big, even though I weighed 115 pounds. Dad returned it an bought me a Medium. It fits just right, even at 120 pounds. I can carry water bottles and some food for Mom and Dad and myself in my pack. Recommended for Rottweilers who love to hike.

Conclusion: Dad says it's well worth the money. Even if we can't go on a hike, it works great for wearing me out quickly. Sometime Dad will just put some full water bottles in the pack and we will go walk a few miles. Man that wears me out! 3.5 out of 4 Paws because the covers that go over the tummy straps tend to slide off when not in use.

So I ordered the Lg thinking that my 80lb Pit Bull would fit it adjusted all in and it would be OK cause of her Athletic prowess. Wrong!! These things run LARGE so I returned it. I will buy the same because from the feel of it it will last quite well so long as Nika does not eat it. I guess my main point is buy smaller than you think. I cannot say how it lasted BUT it did feel sturdy and not "plush" but comfortable.

This product is built well and might last a while, but it was not a good fit for my 62 pound labrador mix. I found him bleeding under his underarms every time he wore his backpack. I even when to a pet store to see if they could adjust it for me. They did, but it still didn't work.

After extensive research I selected the Mountainsmith Dog Pack for my 85lb Golden Retriever. She took to the idea immediately and gets excited whenever I get it out. We just walk around the neighborhood for exercise and she carries two 1 liter bottles of water for mid-walk refreshment. Pack is well made, compared to others I reviewed. It stayes in place and has no issues for us. Thanks to Ceaser Milan (Dog Whisperer) for the excellent idea of using a dog pack for adding exercise weights and dog enjoyment.

My wife uses this dog pack to walk dogs at the local animal shelter, usually 2-3 hours per week. After four months of use it is literally falling apart! Much too expensive a pack to fall apart after so little use. Amazon gratiously provided a replacement pack, however, so we will see if the replacement holds-up any better.

Follow-up to my original review; the replacement pack has held-up fine. It's been through several washings now and a few swims in the lake - she loves it!
