Our Mountainsmith K9 Dog Backpack Review

Mountainsmith is a name renowned throughout the outdoors world for its commitment to premium built products at an extremely consumer friendly price point. The Mountainsmith K-9 Dog Pack is a winner all around and is an official Frontier Gear Editor’s Choice.


FINALLY a backpack worth the money! Most people know that no two dogs are alike, and anyone who has tried to buy a mass market product for their dog knows just how true that is. This is the third backpack I purchased following sizing guidelines, and finally, FINALLY, we found a winner. The fit is exactly as expected per the measurements I took. Not only that, but the quality far surpasses the cheaper types I tried.

When designing this saddle bad style dog pack, Mountainsmith went above in beyond in consulting with a veterinarian experienced with sled and service dogs. The result is the best dog backpack on the market. The best part is the absolute rockbottom price of $37.64 on Amazon. This dog pack is worth the investment and guaranteed to make time on the trail more enjoyable with your pet.
