    It's time Fido started to share the load.

    There’s no free ride for Fido when she hits the trail; she's carrying her own grub, gear, and maybe a few beers with the Mountainsmith Dog Pack. This pannier-style pack is fully adjustable through a four-point system that's padded at the sternum. The pack's tapered torso profile reduces drag and improves your dog’s balance as she trots down the trail. Attach her leash to the D-ring on the top of the harness as you waltz by the forest cops lurking by the trailhead, and store it in the internal pocket once you’re they're of sight.

    • Four-point adjustable harness
    • Padded sternum strap
    • Independently adjustable back harness
    • Zippered panniers
    • Single adjustable belly strap
    • Single haul handle at top of pack
    • Metal D-ring leash attachment point
    • Ergonomically tapered torso shape
    • Air mesh panels
    • Reflective trim
    • Item #MOU000Y

    DOG PACK

    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. We always recommend erring on the smaller side.

    K-9 PACK

    Good pack, some problems

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    104 lb German Shepard, "Solo", size medium



    I love mountainsmith products but I was not impressed with this dog pack.



    Have used this bag for almost a year, with probably 200+ miles of hiking. Has held up very good but the problem is the adjustment straps always come loose because of a bad clip design. The adjustment clips on the top and bottom of the dogpack use grey plastic clips to hold the straps in the adjusted position but never seem to stay. They will stay held down for anything. I continuously adjust his straps after or during every backpacking trip to get the pack to stay fitted onto him. Gonna be jumping on the Appalachian Trail in June to hike 900 miles with Solo and I have to find a replacement dogpack before I leave. I will duck tape the clips in the mean time and use it as a backup.

    Good pack, some problems

    Hello Leland,
    I'm checking in from Mountainsmith headquarters in sunny Golden, CO. We noticed your review of the pack and wanted to follow up to see if we can help trouble shoot with you. Would you be able to send us a few cell phone shots of the buckles that are experiencing the slippage (wider angle so we know which buckle and then a close up of the buckle itself so we can see how the webbing is routed). Shoot them to me directly at jay@mountainsmith.com.
    We can determine if there is an issue with the way the webbing is routed through the buckle and work to either fix your current pack or send you a new one, free of charge. We'd certainly like to see you and Solo rocking our pack on the AT this summer and if we can remedy your situation soon, you can have some time to test before hitting the trail.
    Cheers,
    Jay Getzel

    perfect dog pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This pack is so convenient and helpful on any kind of backpacking trip. Our pup loves wearing it and is not bothered at all by the straps, etc. The Dog Buff and Boots are also from the site if you want the entire package.

    perfect dog pack

    Size properly

    My little husky in the back has a synched down small, she weighs 47 lbs, and my white wolf/husky mix in the front has a VERY synched down medium, and he weighs maybe 80 lbs. When I got his bag, I was concerned I wasn't going to be able to make it small enough to not have it slosh around on his back. I was able to make it fit, but almost feel like a small would have fit better.



    My big white one got hurt on the trail so we turned around, I took everything out of his pack and put it in my little girls. She carried food, a long leash, foldable bowl and a nalgene full of water in her small bag, and I had to fireman carry him to the trail head 2 miles.



    The bags are great, I love how they slow down my huskies! But they love hiking with them, everyone carries their own weight.

    Size properly

    Poor buckle placement

      The mountain smith k-9 pack has good intentions but I believe the design of the straps is unintelligible. The buckles are designed so they snug right underneath your pooch's armpits and every time he takes a step it rubs. After only a few trips my dog's skin started rubbing raw. He was much happier when I took his pack off. I ended up exchanging it for another brand (ruff wear), one that doesn't put the buckle in a stupid position. Also, the ends of the straps started fraying after about 3 short-distance hikes.
      Pros:
      The handle is excellent and great when I want to grab him quickly. The color is bright and easy to see from a distance. The pockets are roomy and the zippers are sturdy. The material is durable.
      Size: my dog is a border collie/Australian shepherd mix and weighs 45 lbs. The small fits him but is almost too big!
      If it wasn't for the placement of the buckles, I would have kept this in a heart beat.

      Poor buckle placement

      She Loves It

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Mountainsmith nailed it with the redesign of this pack. Simple sizing and a great price finally got me to pick up a pack so Kyrra can start carrying her load.



      Kyrra's a 55lb Husky/Wiemaraner mix with about a 22 inch torso length and the medium fit perfect. Plenty of adjustment to dial it in where as I had a hard time getting a good fit with other brands due to the many different sizes and limited adjustability (particularly around her chest).

      She Loves It

      good pack

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I also have the older model of mountain smith dog packs they work well for me...this pack the company says was design with the help of a service dog vet.
      I got the med for my 50lb Siberian husky service dog nik, his chest girth is 28 in .it seems to fit a bit different with more adjustments... he gets it on, and he's ready to go as always...

      Hello Layne, I have a Bernese Mountain Dog and I'm trying to decide between the new and old version of this pack. You say you have the older model - do you have an experience with the new packs? It LOOKS like the older pack has a better design, but I would love real world feedback.

      Thanks!

      David this pack is there NEWEST model dog pack...there other model packs they don't have on the backcountry site Anymore..This pack takes more adjusting..
      you may want to go to the Mountainsmith web site and look for the different models.I think mountainsmith has a gearhead here too?

      i have older model

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      ok so I don't have this newer model but I can say that even with the older one my dog loves his bag. it holds a lot and it fits well.

      i have older model

      Only familiar with the older model

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Which I loved tons of features on - the leash connection point is convenient, the handle is great for when the dog is off-leash but you want to hold her still while other hikers pass, and the bags have plenty of space. What I think I would love about this pack (and what I didn't like about the old design) is that the straps don't cut right across the dog's front legs. My dog chafed on one side where the front strap hit her armpit (even with padding on the straps), which doesn't seem like it'd be a problem with this bag at all.

      Is there a size chart for these bags? If I get one I want to make sure it is the right fit for the pup.

      Gwenn,



      There is! If you click "Size Chart" above the "Select Options" drop-down menu, it will open a new window with the sizing chart for Mountainsmith Dog Packs.
