The Ruffwear Commuter™ is a classic everyday rucksack with a clean, traditional design that incorporates Ruffwear performance features. It includes dogs in day-to-day hunting and gathering delights, empowering them to efficiently carry provisions for the whole pack. The Commuter is at home in urban environments as well as on the trail, from a trip to the farmers market to all-day outings. An integrated harness that's comfortable and easy to adjust provides pack stability and overall performance. Heathered polyester fabric presents a heritage style that excels in the outdoors, while leather accents, aluminum V-ring, webbing tow loop, and side-release buckles modernize a classic look.
