The Switchbak Harness by Ruffwear is the perfect hybrid between a pack and a harness.
The Ruffwear Switchbak Harness has been designed and built on Ruffwear's harness platform but with low-profile pockets for short day hikes and everyday use. It combines the comfort of a harness with the convenience of pockets to keep those small items handy. This foam padded harness has a moulded chassis with a knitted mesh lining and built-in channels to increase flexability and air flow to give your dog maximum comfort, even on an all day activity.
The low profile pockets look really good when not loaded but have been cleverly designed with expansion folds on the bottom so that you can fill with essentials for a day out or a trip around town, such as boots, pick up bags, or a travel bowl. The padded belly strap adds stability for even load dispersion but can be stowed away when not needed. On the back, the Switchbak Harness has a low-profile handle, which lies neatly when not being used but is useful for assisting your dog for example over an obstacle on the trail or in and out of the car.
The harness features a durable polyester shell fabric outer and like the Front Range Harness it has two secure leash attachment options, a V-ring on the back and a reinforced webbing loop at the chest. With 5 adjustment points for an optimal fit and air-lock buckles, this harness slips easily over your dog's head and fastens simply into place for a quick on and off. The Switchbak Harness offers all round reflectivity with reflective piping on the chest panel, prints on the back and relective zipper pulls on the pockets and with a built in light loop, compatible with The Beacon Safety Light, your sure to be seen in low-light conditions.
The Switchback can be used on it's own or together with other Ruffwear apparel so that you can be geared up for fun in any season, whatever the weather! Team up with the Switchbak Leash for the complete look.
