Serving as a protective sleeping base for your favorite 4-legged companion, the Ruff Wear Landing Pad is an accordion-style sleeping pad built especially for dogs. The brushed polyester shell fabric is durable and waterproof and the pad’s closed-cell foam provides cushioning and insulation.
I am here with Sam hanging out on the Ruff Wear Landing Pad. This is a closed cell foam pad that folds up accordion style so that you can throw it into your pack or throw it into your dog’s pack. It does happen to fit inside the Palisades Pack by Ruff Wear. And with that closed cell foam it insulates your dog from cold ground. So if you are camping or backpacking in the winter months when it is really cold, you are going to have your own sleeping pad to insulate you and you should also have one for your four legged friend.
As I said, this does fold up accordion style and it is extremely packable. There is even a little webbing loop. So when you have it all folded down the webbing loop goes around the pad and really secures it down.
Now it is not just for insulating in cold ground. It has a nice cushion to it. So if you are on hard ground, if you are at the crag climbing and you have got a nice little bed for your dog to lay on or to sleep on. And it also is waterproof. So it insulates from the wet grass as well with that foam insulation.
It packs down to be pretty small, but, as you can see, the dimensions here are big enough for your dog to curl up and lay down on. If I fold it up here just to show how small that packs down, the webbing strap will go around there. And it has got Velcro on both sides, so you can pack it down. It is nice and lightweight. It weighs about seven ounces and, like I said, the Palisades Pack here it will fit into one of the saddle bags if you want your dog to carry its own weight. Or you can just throw it in your backpack or lash it to the outside.
Now this sleeping pad fits really well inside of either the Ruff Wear Highlands Bed, which has a sleeve in it for this pad, or the Highlands Sleeping Bag. So it is going to be custom fit for those as well. So you can use this on its own or in conjunction with those two. So, overall, it is a really lightweight pad for your dog to hang out on and to be comfortable, insulated from cold ground or have a nice pad on hard ground. It is the Ruff Wear Landing Pad.
