Carry your essentials in this compact harness / pack

The Switchbak is an impressive new hybrid of Ruffwear's best selling harness with the added functionality of a streamlined pack for your essentials.

Everything you want in a harness with the convenience of pockets!

The Switchbak is a high grade and comfy structured harness with just the right amount of padding. Ruffwear didn't miss a trick when they designed the Front Range Harness. Without question it is the most loved harness I've ever sold. Now they've added in the functionality of a low profile pack to create this great new option.

Stop your rascal from pulling

An fabulous feature of the Switchbak is its two leash attachments points : a traditional one on the back plus an added one on the chest. Using the front chest attachment point redirects enthusiastic dogs who pull. This simple solutions can really make a difference in your walking experience.

Amazing fit!

The Switchbak harness offers high adjustability plus a padded belly strap which is critical for stable gear carrying. Comfort is easy with the Switchbak.

Low Profile Handle

This comes in handy more often than you expect as you navigate the great outdoors or load up into the car. The low profile handle helps you give your fuzzy mate a little boost when needed.

All in all, the Switchbak marries comfort and convenience into a high performance harness ready for both town and trail.
