The fit was true to the girth measurement guide. I have a 57 pound labradoodle and he fit the medium. The pack's construction looks durable. He was initially not too psyched to be wearing a pack, but got used to it quickly. We did a 12 mile backpacking trip through creeks and a lot of brush and the pack held up as hoped for. No chafing or sore spots. It was nice to be able to unbuckle the pack for rest stops and when he needed to jump through narrow spaces. I anticipate we'll have years of outdoor fun together with this pack. More expensive than a lot of packs out there, but it was notable that my friend's dog's less expensive pack was askew the entire time.

I recently bought my beagle this pack and have used it several times. The harness and saddle bag are quality constructed of quality materials. The harness can be used independently of the pack and is the best harness I have ever owned. The saddle bag is designed distribute the load over the shoulders and seems to do just that. Unclipping and clipping the pack to the harness can be a little tricky, but I think that I just have not used the pack enough times to get the hang of it. This product is very expensive but you will not find a better harness/pack system than this one. You get what you pay for.

palisades pack best there is
i researched every dog pack i could find. i have 2 german shepherds & we needed to upgrade to packs for longer hikes and overnight trips. these are the best, hands down. plenty of cargo room& excellent hydration packs that remain in place and well-balanced. the cargo packs remove from the harness easily & fitting the harness is a snap. the quality of materials and workmanship is excellent. thanks ruff wear!

We purchased the Palisades Dog Pack for our trip to Colorado to hike around Summit County. It worked nicely with the pack on and off of the harness. It was a great way for our dog, Brinkley, do his part during our hikes. It fit well and provided a secure harness when the pack/hydration system was not in use. He was very comfortable in it. The pack is meant to fit snug so the pack does not shift, but evaluate your dog periodically for pressure points if you do not use a harness for regular use.
