Designed with the aid of a longtime sled dog veterinarian, the Mountainsmith K-9 Pack has ergonomic construction and optimal storage to allow your 4-legged hiking partner to join you on your backcountry explorations.
Equipped with everything your dog needs to carry his own weight on the trail, the Mountainsmith K-9 pack has lots of features, is really easy to use and is comfortable for your dog. We will go through all the features and talk about what makes this pack so special.
The first thing I want to point out is all the attachment points here are very durable. So this is a trail worthy pack. It is exactly what you would expect for a human’s backpack on the trail. So you have got really durable construction here, durable materials. So definitely trail worthy. All the attachment points and the way you adjust the pack is also very durable and bomb proof.
The K-9 pack has two big saddle bag pockets, one on either side. You have got a very durable loop here for the leash and then you have kind of a carry or haul loop behind that. So that can get your dog out of trouble when it needs to jump over big rocks or stumps or something like that. But you can also quickly attach a leash on to that as well. So that is the haul loop right here.
As I said, it is comfortable for the dog. So you have a nice pad up here at the top. It is like a lumbar pad on a regular human’s back pack. So there is a lot of padding in there and there is also padding in the front. There is multiple attachment points and multiple ways you can adjust the pack. You can cinch in the saddle bags up here in the top and you can also cinch in the harness down here in the bottom. So it is a really versatile pack as well.
The saddle bag pockets here are nice and big. These are bellows pockets, so if you don’t have them completely packed out they are light weight enough that you can cinch them down in.
Just to show the size, on this side I have got some treats, a Frisbee. I have got the leash. On this other side I have got a bunch of Sam’s booties here and a toy. So these are big enough if you have like a small water flask or something like that, you could definitely put them in these pockets.
There is a nice reflective strip on both sides so that adds... is an added safety feature. This would be a great pack for multi day trips or day hikes when you dog is going to want to carry its food and maybe some water and toys.
All in all this is the perfect trail companion for your next adventure. It is the Mountain-smith K-9 pack.
