Product description

The Ruffwear Palisades Pack is the Ultimate Dog Backpack!

Three key features set this pack apart from other dog packs: firstly it's removable saddlebags, secondly it's load compression and lastly the hydration bladders.

Built for use in rugged conditions, on multi-day backpacking trips or simply when extra carrying capacity is needed. Integrated water bladders keep your dog hydrated in dry conditions.  Each bladder (2 in total) holds 1 litre of water.

It's recommended that your dog carry no more than 25 - 30% of their body weight in their dog pack.

When you need to have greater control over your dog (perhaps crossing a river or lifting your dog over an obstacle) the sadllebags remove to reveal the Webmaster Harness below - so the Palisades Pack is two products in one!


  • Removable saddlebags
  • Great load compression 
  • Hydration bladders
  • Space-efficient saddlebags with lightweight, streamlined, go-fast shape
  • Weight-forward saddlebag design for ideal load-carrying position
  • Trail-savvy details like waterproof zippers, high-visibility reflective trim, external gear loops, and aluminum V-ring leash attachment
  • Web Master™ Harness frame ensures good stability and weight dispersion with a five-point adjustable fit and full range of motion
  • Designed to rack up the miles with highly durable construction
  • Balanced assistance handle helps lift dog up and over obstacles


Measure your dog's girth (the widest part around their rib cage) to find the right size. See our size guide tab above for more details.

27-Dec-2016 5 out of 5 stars.5 Excellent quality product No Comment

25-Nov-2016 5 out of 5 stars.5 It's well made but only just fits our 48kg German Shepherd. He has sensitive skin and the straps sometimes do rub him and cause problem so I'm going to put some soft fleece around the problem areas.
Plenty of pockets and the water bladders are great but not sure how to dry them out for hygeine as they collapse when empty due to the shape, I can imagine they could get a bit mould if you're not careful.

22-Jun-2016 5 out of 5 stars.5 Really super piece of kit. Lots of adjustments to make it fit well and dog happy to wear it. Tried it over some long weekends camping and it stood up to some robust terrain with the dog. Well designed. Only niggle was tiny clips to keep panniers on harness got sand/grit in them and then I couldn't release them. No Comment
