Simply remove the saddlebags and your dog is then wearing a modified Ruffwear’s Web Master Harness, this harness contains four attachment points ensuring the weight of the saddlebags are evenly and comfortably distributed.

A padded handle is an added feature for you to help your adventure buddy through challenging obstacle. The Palisades pack contains additional loops and pockets on the outside of the main saddlebags for the option of hanging or storing easy to reach items.
