Bought this for a 6 day walk of Hadrian's Wall which included our 4 year old Labrador. This worked really well.

You have to be careful to balance the two sides so that it doesn't droop down one side when he's walking along. This usually took a little bit of trial and error each day, and is easier if the load is lighter.

Easily held a blanket, water, two days worth of dried food and treats. He had no problems carrying it.

It comes in two parts - a harness, a bit like a coat which straps round the front legs and under the chest and belly. The second catch was a little suspect if pulled really hard (too tight really), but otherwise held him well. The straps were too long, but easily cut short (I then melted the ends to stop fraying).

The main bag section fixes onto the harness by Velcro. There is also a security catch which isn't really needed. The Velcro attachment works really well. We had to take the bag off most times we went through narrow kissing gates and it simply ripped off, then re-attached quickly afterwards. Some days we did this twenty or thirty times and it seems no less sticky at the end than at the beginning.

The only downside is that the bag is not waterproof - we needed to wrap the contents in plastic bags to keep them dry.

He got a lot of admiring comments from other walkers and dog owners - and also played his part in carrying his own kit for the week.

It's a very lovely shape, the material is durable and the blue is nice and bright. The pockets are huge which is really nice, and it's pretty simple to strap it all up. Once it's strapped and tightened or loosened to your dog's measurements then it's very snug and should stay put for the entire walk.

The top piece (the bags, etc.) is also removable via velcro so you can take off the bags without having to unclip the harness which is very handy if you want to take things out of the backpack or refill it with no fuss.

I have a beagle who pulled me constantly and never listened to me when we walked but I read that some dogs like to have a purpose i.e a job so when I bought this backpack not only was it cute I was amazed at how differently he walked with me. He didn't pull anymore and because he couldn't put his nose to the ground as easily he paid more attention to me. A great product for dog walkers

I like it, it's very well made of a little on the small size. It's a shame there are no measurements in the description as this would help massively. It's on the packaging s so I don't see why it can't be transferred. When I have a few moments I'll pop the on here for others to see.
All in all, really pleased with this, much better quality than another I purchased recently which is being returned.
I'm not sure my dog would agree however as she seemed to sulk whilst out wearing it, but maybe she just needs to get used to it.
The only fiddly thing is the supposed quick release buckle, it's small and really stiff and awkward to press and release, apart from that it's great. I also like the fact that you can remove the pack without having to completely take off the harness which is useful for rest stops etc. But I do wish there was a handle or similar so you can easily hold the pack whilst the dog isn't wearing it.

Update on above review
I mentioned about the sizes - this is what's on the packaging
Small - 12-25 inch girth 15-19 lbs weight
Medium - 14-30 inch girth 20-49 lbs weight
Large - 20-35 inch girth 50-69 lbs girth
XLarge - 25-41 inch girth 70-90 lbs weight

Hope this helps you all, I know it would have certainly helped me.

Initially I loved this but have stopped using it as its cut all under his belly.

I got this for my cocker spaniel, she's very small for a cocker but with a few strap adjustments it fits her perfectly. Now I'm not going to weigh her down, but the pockets are very spacious, can easy fit a water bottle at each side, and there are elastic straps to hold down bottles. Within each pocket there are mesh zippy pockets which seem pretty damn nice, haven't tested them yet though. Only thing is that I'm keeping a eye out on the straps under her front legs, she hasn't got much fur there, and I haven't tightened it to much so it should be ok, because of course there are a few backpacks which rub on the dogs 'armpits' and makes them bleed or whatnot. So far so good though :)

I have this for my young St.Bernard, we put doggy and human treats/drinks in it and off we go! Fits well and my dog is really happy wearing it.

You have to make sure you balance both sides otherwise you get slippage, but once I mastered the art of that it was fine, not rubbing or marks on the dog even after a long walk.

Tried three rucksacks on my lurcher (saluki x whippet) that either didn't fit or rubbed her raw as she has very fine hair and very thin skin. She's now had this one for a few months and has worn it with a 750mL water bottle in either side (as well as poo bags, treats, etc.) for walks of up to 5 miles with no rubbing whatsoever.

I like the design -- it's like a normal harness and the pack then settles over it and is held on by velcro and a single snap. This is great for longer walks, as I can take off the panniers easily without unsnapping the whole contraption from my dog. When they're on, the velco holds firm and there's a handle in the middle in case your pooch needs a helping hand over any obstacles.

The build quality overall seems good -- the zippers move easily and seem pretty robust and I haven't noticed any weaknesses in the stitching. The fabric is a bit thin, so I should point out that my dog is always on a lead and isn't the sort to go tearing through the underbrush. If you have THAT sort of dog, it might tear if they go flying through a hedgerow.

I have two minor niggles about this product:
1. a d-ring would be nice; a seperate collar is required for walking your dog on a lead
2. the pouches are pretty big; when I go hiking and camping with my dog, this might come in handy for her to carry bigger but very light items, such as plastic bowls or spare shirts, but for walks about the local park, they could really do with being smaller. Be really careful that you don't overload your dog, as the size of the pouches might tempt you to fill them up if you've never used a pack like this before! My dog only carries about 10-15% of her body weight at any given time.
