Granite Gear Long Howl dog pack is an excellent option for hikers and backpackers who take their best friends on the trail. On a recent trip to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, we encountered one big German Shepherd on the trail around Convict Lake with his dog-pack, food and water, and the happiest tail wagging lope to be found on the opening day of trout season. With more dogs accompanying owners on the trail it makes perfects sense to kit your pet up with its own supply of food, water, and perhaps a ground cloth or dog-sweater.
Below is a snap-shot take on how the folks at Backpacker magazine viewed the Granite Gear Long Howl dog pack.
Backpacker magazine Essentials Dog Gear Pack feature: “The Granite Gear Long Howl is built a lot like your pack. It features an adjustable harness that keeps webbing straps off of our dog’s fur (where it can chafe) by way of wide, lightly padded straps.
It’s lined with stretch-woven fabric-the same kind Granite Gear uses in people packs. The removable saddlebags have reflective stripes so you can see Astro after sundown. “It hugged my 95-pound Lab’s barrel chest perfectly, and the kibble-stocked pack never got lopsided,” the tester said.”
