The human vest/dog sling features several points of adjustment for the dog and human, with color-coded straps for easy setup. It can be worn with the dog either in the front or the back.

    Absolute great product for when you need it!

    The size and weight are perfect. I do a lot off the grid hiking with my 65lb GSP. He gets into all sorts of fun situations and I am happy to have this Evacuation Kit. Being able to adjust the straps are crucial and they are comfortable. If you are a hiker, this is a must own.

    I’ve been looking for this type of harness since last year

    I have 3 English Springer Spaniels who love to hike with me, especially the female that comes from a Search and Rescue lineage. She also happens to be the oldest and just turned 8 this year. I took her on a weekend hiking trip with me last year at Mount Baker and on the 2nd day, on our return hike, we had to stop and rest more frequently and she kept laying down. It then just made me realize I need something to carry her or one of the other 2 dogs out if they get overheated or injured. I looked everywhere and then found a website that compared multiple harnesses. I bought this one for the packability and b/c I could carry her on my back. I tried the harness out when I got it and it took me about 15 minutes to figure it out but it was perfect. I felt like carrying her out while carrying my backpack in front of me was totally doable. I have a bad back but I was carrying her lower, close to my waistline so it was comfortable. All 3 of my dogs are about 50 pounds and the large fit them perfectly. She didn’t fight it at all while I carried her around the house and outside. I’ll feel so much better about bringing any of the dogs with me when I hike now. You never want to wait until something happens to buy something like this. But also, now I can do other hikes where I might have to climb stairs or cross something and I can carry her. Get this harness now! Thanks Ruffwear!

    Evac kit

    I have looked into a kit for a while now, from different brands. I felt this one spoke more with what I needed.

    I understand the comments of it being difficult to use and Intend to practice with my dog.

    I keep in mind that it's to use in emergency and to feel safer since I like to hike alone with her.

    A great helper

    I bought this for my 65lb vizsla after she had paw surgery. She can’t do stairs for 3-4 weeks, and I’d never make it without this. It’s durable, strong, and easily adjustable. I don’t know that I’ll ever fit

    It back in the bag, but that’s ok!
