Mountainsmith was founded in 1979 by legendary outdoorsman Patrick Smith and was born of a need for seriously durable gear that could withstand the rigors of backcountry pursuits in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. His initial product innovation was the world’s first fully rigid backcountry ski sled to haul massive loads of gear effectively and efficiently through the harsh Colorado winter wilderness. Soon after, Patrick Smith came up with the iconic lumbar waist pack to effectively carry gear while backcountry skiing and secured the first patent for a lumbar pack, US PAT #5529230, using our Delta Load Compression system which carries on into the present day within a variety of our packs and classic lumbars.
As a company, Mountainsmith continues it’s commitment to building the best made, most durable and functional packs on the market; unmatched by anyone for their comfort, stability, value and performance in the backcountry. This tradition of legendary quality continues with a full line of outdoor products for today’s active lifestyle consumer. The quality and comfort of all Mountainsmith products – technical backpacks, trekking poles, tents and sleeping bags, travel storage systems, luggage, pet products, camera bags, as well as our iconic lumbar packs - set a standard of excellence in the outdoor marketplace. Mountainsmith manufactures, markets, and distributes a wide array of products designed to meet the demands of rigorous travel on and off the trail, through mountain valleys, summit ascents, campus quads, red rock canyons, and far off airports. ..anywhere your next adventure takes you.
A hike is just not the same without your four-legged best friend. Grab your Mountainsmith K-9 Dog Pack, and hit the trail with this "dogonomically" correct gear hauler. Mountainsmith consulted a local Golden, CO sled dog veterinarian to assist with the designs to ensure a proper fit that will maintain comfort all day long. Combining that insight with 30 years of dog pack building experience brings us to the most efficient dog backpack in the industry. Often times, dogs proudly take on the responsibility of carrying their share of the load and can make a significant difference in the weight of their pack. Be sure to use the fit guide to find the proper size and fit of your pack. We always recommend erring on the smaller side.

The key to this pack's flexibility is that each saddle bag hangs by two straps from the top portion that has the handle on it, rather than being connected by a solid piece of fabric like other packs. This allows the bags to hang naturally and provides the flexibility needed for the bags and the dog to move around enough for comfort yet still have the bags remain secure. The ONE improvement that would make this pack even BETTER, would be if that top portion were made of a true mesh material to allow the dog's skin and fur to breath. This pack is still designed so well it's definitely a keeper!
The attached photo shows our 5 mo old lab-mix puppy, River, wearing the Medium size Dog Pack. She has a 24" girth, 18" length, and is 38 lbs, so I think she will easily grow into the medium quite nicely.
The saddle bags are also the roomiest I've found so far as well. Now that doesn't mean weighing the poor girl down with heavy things (a six pack of beer does sound tasty after a long hike, but neither her nor I are packing that in) But having room for some bulkier light weight items like her camp throw and a towel is super handy. In the pictures, she's carrying everything that she would need for an overnight: sleeping throw, towel, 2 collapsible dog bowls, food, two bottles of water, tie out line, garbage bags for packing out, and and line lead. 4 pounds approximately and not too bulky. She carried it six miles in our trial hike and zero slippage.
You'll find cheaper packs, but save yourself the headache, the game of chasing those cheap packs down the trail (flip back to top...watch it fall left....flip it up again.....watch it fall right), and your poor buddy's comfort on a long trail and just get this one. You won't regret it.
The material itself seems very durable. I feel confident it will definitely hold up in our outdoor excursions. Furthermore, the design is very ergonomically friendly to the dog. It keeps the saddlebags close to the dogs side and over his front legs. My dog doesn't even seem phased by it in the least. I bag sizes are also very large. There is one on each side and that's the only storage. However, they are very spacious. I can fit plenty of food, a travel doggy bed, travel bowls, towel, and still have room to pack more.
Word of caution, don't go too overboard loading up your dog with weight. My dog weighs 65# and I wouldn't put much more than 4 lbs. on him at any given time. It may be easy to pack a lot in these bags, but keep it comfortable for your dog too.
