Add to wish list

The Ruffwear Commuter is a classic everyday backpack with a slick urban design with Ruffwear performance features.

  • Give your dog a job and exercise by letting him carry some gear and water!
  • Cool urban style with Ruffwear functionality!: The Commuter Pack is at home in urban environments as well as on the trail, from a trip to the farmers’ market to all-day outings. An integrated harness that's comfortable and easy to adjust provides pack stability and overall performance. Heathered polyester fabric presents a heritage style that excels in the outdoors, while leather accents, aluminum V-ring, webbing tow loop, and side-release buckles modernize a classic look.
  • Features humans appreciate!: Convenient, easy-access side stash pockets for often used items. Padded handle and non-slip girth straps for good load dispersion and controlled and comfortable lifting. Three points of leash connection: single-piece, anodized aluminum V-ring and two webbing loops. Front attachment included to help discourage pulling on the leash!
  • Stay visible: The Commuter Pack's reflective trim is visible in low light. Optional Beacon Light is available.
  • Superior quality! Pet Expertise's owner, Jess Rollins, researched and tested several dog backpacks before settling on the Ruffwear. She found that the lower-priced products didn't stay on the dog properly and many times did not offer leash connection.
  • Washing: Secure fasteners, hand wash in mild detergent and hang dry.

Shipping: This special order item ships free directly from our supplier to US addresses only.

Carrying Capacity: It's recommended that your dog carry no more than 25 - 30% of their body weight in their dog pack. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with a light load and work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing the pack.

I got this for my service dog sasha. My first impression was it is very well made. Fits perfectly very comfy definitely worth every penny
This is the first pack we purchased for our 50lb border collie. The two small pouches on the side hold the .6liter collapsible water bottle perfectly. There is enough room to store treats, leashes, water bowls, etc. It may not hold enough for multi day adventures, but is perfect for day outings and stylish around town. Bag appears to float a little bit when our pup jumps in the river.
The only bag my dog likes wearing! Sturdy, well designed, comfortable harness underneath and a beautiful pack! Perfect for city dwellers! Even the XS has enough space for all you need.
