        Researched a lot before getting this pack for Panda, my 6 month old Husky mix. It is very well constructed, Ruffwear has used materials found in serious outdoor gear made for people. The most important aspect for me was having the ability to easily detach the packs from the harness to give the pup a rest when needed.
        My dog seems to like it very much,and she looks awesome wearing it. So far we have only used it during short hikes and snowshoeing adventures, but I am sure we will enjoy longer expeditions in the warmer months.
        Pay attention to size chart, measure your dog before you buy.
        Regarding EMS, the size I was looking for was not available when I stopped by, so I ordered on line. It was at my door steps in two days, way ahead of the 7 day they had promised...Awesome service, as always.

        I work part time as a mountain guide and I bought this product for my 70 pound female Siberian Husky. I get tired of carrying her food and water and this is the perfect solution. This also slows her down from the weight, which is perfect for keeping her closer to me. The material is strong and holds up to my huskies roughness which includes a love for swimming and rubbing up against rocks because she has no concept of width with this backpack on. The integrated water bladders are of great material construction and haven't popped from the huskies roughness. The only two issues I have found with this product is that the adjusters don't easily pass through the padded belly protectors and the dromedaries aren't easy to dry out. My husky is between a medium and an large size so unfortunately adjusting the pack to fit her was more cumbersome than I would have liked with the adjustment buckles falling right in the middle of the padded belly straps. The dromedaries for water storage are of a strange bottom shape and are difficult to dry out after use. I had to be creative in my drying process.

        Some problems

              I purchased this pack last month and my dog has used it on a few day trips and one overnight. I generally like this pack, however there are some problems. The bag is equipped with one liter bags. Both of these bags sprung a leak at the factory seam in the same exact location. This leads me to believe this is a manufacturing problem. The little side clips are not well designed. They are difficult to latch given their size. This should be redesigned. Also, the pack is very prone to shifting on your dogs back if there is slight weight imbalance, so you must be careful how much water is taken from each bottle and make sure they are at the exact same level before resuming hiking, other wise the pack will shift on your dogs back. EMS customer service was very good to work with and they offered to take the bag back and replace it with a new one (because of the leaky bottles). This is an expensive pack and I expected more.

                I love this bag! My dog is small (30 lb.) so we have a hard time finding things that will work for her, but this seems to fit her well! The bag part is a bit large relative to her body size, but I think she'll adjust. It helps to wear her out and makes our packs a little lighter. ALSO, the harness detaches which is AWESOME! We actually just use the harness a lot.
