Spring 2018: Connections Built to Last
For Spring 2018, Ruffwear drew inspiration from its heritage. We examined and updated our original product – the first collapsible food and water bowl – and we took a deep dive into our passion for sharing the outdoors with our canine companions. This passion provides the reason why we do what we do.
We believe dogs make us whole and that our relationship with our dogs is shaped by the adventure we share. This season, we’ve updated some of our classic outdoor-inspired gear with new colors and features, while providing new solutions that we believe will enhance and inspire exploration for canines and their human companions.
As climbers, outdoor enthusiasts, and dog people, we’re constantly drawing parallels between the outdoor activities we love and our relationships with our dogs. Our climbing-inspired gear uses strong, supple kernmantle rope with durable, dependable hardware.
New for spring, the Knot-a-Hitch offers a solution for car-camping and other circumstances where your furry friend needs to be on leash while you perform duties such as setting up the tent, preparing dinner, or building a campfire. The Knot-a-Hitch includes a 36′ rope that can be secured to a single post or around two trees with a climbing-inspired tensioning system. It provides enough room to roam while ensuring that your camping buddy doesn’t wander off to investigate someone else’s campsite.
Knot-a-Collar™, Knot-a-Leash™, Knot-a-Long™, & Just-a-Cinch™
A leash is not only our literal connection to our dogs. It’s a statement of our relationship, a representation of how we interact, and a symbol of the outdoor adventures we love to share. This season’s collection uses the same strong and supple materials and hardware, with updated color offerings.
New for 2018, the Stash Bag is a pick-up bag storage and dispensing system that can be attached to a hand-held or waist-worn leash. The system includes 15 Earth Rated pick-up bags, organizing pockets for other essentials, and a key hook.
Inspired by Ruffwear’s very own office dog Bernie and his human Liz, the Treat Trader is a waist-worn treat bag that allows humans to keep rewards on hand for canine companions. This training tool has an ergonomic fit with a one-handed secure magnetic closure that delivers an audible cue as dogs receive their reward.
Updating Classic Favorites
Quencher & Quencher Cinch Top
The Quencher is the packable food and water bowl that started it all back in 1994. For this season, we’ve continued evolving this classic bowl with modern colors. The Quencher Cinch Top features an integrated drawstring closure for carrying food on-the-go. Both fabric bowls are available in three vibrant new colors with reflective trim for low-light visibility.
Dirtbag Seat Cover
We all know that adventures can be messy. Ruffwear’s Dirtbag Seat Cover is well-loved by humans and canines alike because it contains the mess and protects vehicle seats from the wildest adventures. For 2018, this vehicle seat cover has been updated with new fabric that’s tear-resistant, waterproof, and comfortable for dogs. Stuffer cleats, webbing loops, and grip coating on the back of the seat cover work together to keep it in place. The Dirtbag is now available in two color offerings to match warm or cool tones of vehicle interiors.
