    Good Investment

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have two medium size dogs that I bought this for and let me tell you, I do not regret my purchase. Yes the price is high for a dog backpack, I totally agree, just wait till it goes on sale and grab it. Make sure to use the sizing guidelines. The product is well made, the material is tough, not wimpy. I have a good feeling it will last a long time. Used the backpacks on both dogs and they enjoyed the extra challenge and I LOVE that they can carry their own stuff. I use the harness by itself most of the time, that was a big reason I purchased this item and not just the harness; so that I can have a two in one but if I wanted the backpack for a trip it was easy to attach and go.

    Perfect for hiking!

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

    Going on longer hikes we would carry water for us and the dogs. This pack allows our dogs to have their own water, snack and medical supplies on hikes. And the best part is that they carry it themselves!

    Pretty Good

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great dog pack. Love the fact the pack disconnects from the harness so the harness can be used by itself. Would have given this 5 stars but i prefer the last gen model where the pack connected by clipping together instead of the current one that is basically metal buttons that slide through a hole like buttons on a dress shirt. Still works great and havent had any issues, the last gen just felt more secure.

    My friend's dog George is like family. He's going on a big hike soon and and I wanted to make sure he was ready to carry his own weight. The palisades pack has worked perfect so far. It fits and moves well on him. Would buy it again.

    Unanswered Question

    We've used the approach pack for several years (and 3 dogs). i want to upgrade to this pack. What I would like to know is what features have changed between the 2017 model of the pack and the previous model. I like the look of the previous model better, but I'd like to know if the new model has better features, etc.
