Having the right gear – whether it’s sturdy boots, a properly fitting pack, or comfortable clothing – can make or break an adventure. But choosing the right gear isn’t always easy. There are so many options that it can even feel overwhelming at times. We spend hours researching, asking friends for advice and trying on different options before finally making a choice on the gear best suited for our needs.

Luckily, it’s less complicated to gear up your furry friend. Ruffwear offers a variety of packs, boots and apparel designed for various needs and preferences, not to mention leashes and collars. To help you navigate these options, we’re highlighting a few of our most popular and well-loved pieces of gear – and we’re including testimonials from other adventurers like yourself!

Customer Favorites: Front Range™ Harness, Grip Trex™ Boots, Approach Pack™

Front Range Harness: The Ruffwear Front Range Harness is an easy-to-fit everyday harness that’s comfortable for dogs to wear all day. It has four points of attachment for a secure fit and two leash attachment options for regular walking or training and controlling dogs who like to pull. An ID pocket on the top keeps dog tags quiet and accessible.

Here’s what our customers had to say about the Front Range Harness:

@courtneyglaab said, “Love these new @ruffwear harnesses!!!! They make the perfect adventure harness for these short legged babes.”


@gruntpics: “On point! Thanks #ruffwear for a great product! My harness allows me to travel in comfort to some very rugged and beautiful places! So much better than my old collar.”


And, @max.and.maeby said, “We love this harness.”


Grip Trex Boots: The Ruffwear Grip Trex Boots take adventure to the next level for dogs who run, hike and explore. Built with a rugged Ruffwear-designed Vibram outsole, these high-performance boots provide protection and excellent traction on varied terrain. The breathable mesh upper keeps dirt and debris out, and the hook-and-loop closure cinches securely around the narrowest part of the dog’s leg.
