We have made this sturdy, functional, and user-friendly backpack so that you and your dog can get the most out of your trip. Many expeditions have used the Amundsen Pack, among others crossing Norway and Svalbard. The Amundsen Pack has two big rolltop bags. These are aramid fiber reinforced and handle substantial wear from rocks and rough vegetation. They are protected from rain by a ripstop cover. The cover holds two zipped pockets for easy access and a see-through window for compass or contact information. The attachment loop on the back is similar to the ones found on our harnesses, a loop with a gliding metal ring on it. This pack is developed to give the dog comfort while carrying. But, for an optimal experience, it is crucial to adjust it and pack it correctly. The bags are shaped to carry the heaviest loads over the dog's shoulders. The straps between the bags tighten to lift the bags away from the dog's elbows. Many adjustment straps and the padded neck are customizable to distribute the load on the dog's body. A broad chest plate helps to hold the pack stable and comfortable. Amundsen Pack is grey and black and has integrated reflective materials. The pack is available in sizes XXS-XXL

How do I find the right size on the Amundsen Pack?
Follow the size chart. The width is measured from elbow to elbow, above the dog’s back. Make all the adjustments on top of the backpack. The strap in front: this strap should be tight, to avoid movement in the backpack. The strap behind: you should be able to fit two fingers vertically between the board and the dogs’ chest. To adjust the neck size: It is tight enough when you can fit two fingers vertically between the neck and backpack. Depth: The backpack should stop by the dog’s elbow, or 2cm above.
What is the blue line on the back of the backpack for, and why is the ring loose?
The blue strap in the back is for trekking/having your dog pull you. The ring is sliding so that the backpack maintains a stable position when you and the dog are not centered.
How old should the dog be to carry a backpack?
The dog should be fully grown, approximately two years before it is ready to start backpack training. Initially, with no weight, let your dog get used to wearing the backpack. Then you can gradually increase the load. Make sure to balance the weight on both sides. Learn more: https://www.nonstopdogwear.com/en-int/magazine/backpack-dogs/
How much weight can the dog carry?
After many workouts, a very fit dog can carry between 30-50% of its body weight; keep in mind that this varies from the breed and the dogs’ shape and age. If you are planning a hike and you want your dog to carry a backpack, we strongly recommend that you begin training your dog with short sessions long in advance. A dog needs time to adapt to a new load, even if it is very fit. Keep an extra eye on your dog when it is carrying a backpack, especially on hot summer days.

Is Amundsen Pack waterproof?
