REI Adventure Dog Pack

REI Adventure Dog Pack – Well designed and well priced.
REI has been making amazing gear for some time now. Not only do they make top quality gear for you, but they also make it for your four legged buddy. Now you and your pouch and travel the trails with quality gear, but without breaking the bank. To get your dog pumped up about the hike, start them off with their own dog backpack. REI has a great line of dog backpacks called the REI Adventure Dog Pack.

With the REI Adventure Dog Pack your dog will be able to carry their own weight on the trail. Dual saddle bags and zippered pockets give you plenty of places to store your dogs foods, gear, and bowls. The saddle bags are made from 630 denier nylon that is water resistant. The saddle bags also have drain holes in case of heavy rains or river crossings.

The design of the saddle bags on the REI Adventure Dog Pack are narrow enough to allow your dog to move freely through even dense vegetation. To help keep the saddle bags in place, the REI Adventure Dog Pack is designed to only shift slight during use. This helps your dog stay comfortable and balanced while wearing the pack.
