Hurtta “Bounty Bag” Treat Pouch

As with the Trainer’s Vest, the Bounty Bag’s most unique feature is its removable liner – after using sticky, smelly or wet treats, you can simply pull out the velcroed-in liner and wash it separately without having to wash the whole bag.

Head-Lites & “Low Beams” LED Collar

Head-Lites are no-compromise LED wear. As standalone collars, they’re already great: reflective, sturdy, lightweight and attractive- but add the LEDs and they’re amazing.

Kurgo Reflective 6-in-1 Quantum Dog Leash

The Quantum is on the thick side because it’s made with two layers of nylon webbing, tacked together about every 3″ (it varies) to create a nylon ladder; to fix the leash around your waist/shoulder/an object, you clip into the ladder with the included carabiner.

Hurtta Trainer’s Vest

I thought the Trainer’s Vest might be a good backpack alternative for quick sunset hikes – it’s got plenty of pockets for snacks, treats, and a leash. Turns out, I actually use it for quite a variety of things, especially as the weather cools down.

Hurtta Torrent Coat

The Torrent Coat is made like human grade tech clothing – or better. The shell is a smooth, not-too-crinkly breathable and waterproof nylon layer, and it’s fully lined with a thick, soft fine mesh.

MyBusyDog Waterproof Dog Boots

Waterproofness is a selling point, but here’s a caution: dogs sweat through their pads, so to prevent overheating, more ventilation is better. Additionally, waterproof boots can collect water and cause blisters if they get submerged in a stream or puddle.

Hurtta Active Harness

This harness comes in two styles – the “Dazzle” style in hi-viz orange and yellow, with large reflective areas on the back and chest panels, and the standard style in cherry, raven, and juniper, with three little reflective triangles on the chest and reflective trim around the neck and back.

Ruffwear Portage Float Coat

Update: Since the date of this review, Ruffwear released a new edition of their life jacket called simply the “Float Coat”. They’re available in teal, red and orange, while the previous version, the “K-9 Float Coat”, was available in red and yellow. This review references the K-9 Float Coat but the redesign does not appear…

Ruffwear Sun Shower

Though Robin’s a perfect XS in his sleeved Ruffwear Climate Changer, the vest styles (like this Sun Shower, and his Swamp Cooler) are too big in the chest. This one is the worst of the two because of the flexible material- no matter how we adjust the belly straps, he periodically catches a foot in the chest panel or steps through to the other side.

Guyot Squishy Bowl

The 16oz bowl (which we take camping, see this post’s featured image) and 8oz cup (our trail bowl) are both the same flat bottomed globe shape, so they hold water in well without splashing, but have a narrow opening that some dogs might not be thrilled about.

Even better, these are the only boots that Robin hasn’t thrown, EVER. They won’t come off no matter how much leaping and careening he does, and I think it’s the combination of ultralight construction and the slightly stretchy closures that do it.
