I run with an Akita and it works very well! The straps don’t come loose when he does try to stop/ go another direction. The pouch fits my IPhone 13Pro Max perfectly making a nice and snug fit. I don’t feel the pouch with my phone bounce at all. I use the side small ones for poop bags and the other for keys.
I’ve had one for months and love the large pouch on the front, for my phone, doggie poop bags and the skippered sides for my key. I have arthritis in my hands so this is perfect for walking my dog. Works nicely. This one I purchased for my sister who walks two dogs, each with their different style so hands free would be great for her younger one, while walking the senior dog on a regular leash. The one thing I would change is I’m regards to the belt. It tends to loosen while walking and needs tightening every once in a while.
I’m a professional dog walker, so I get several hours of use out of this every day. I don’t use the included leash, I love the fannypack! My arms were getting sore from holding leashes all the time and after a couple weeks of using this with normal leashes attached to carabiners they feel much better. That said, I would change a couple things if I could. I wish the d rings could move more freely along the belt (perhaps a very short bungee leash with carabiner clasps on each side?) and I wish there was a way to lock the waistband at a certain size as it tends to loosen.
I like the zipper pouches. There is plenty of space for my phone and keys and poop bags. There are two metal clips for the leash. However they are on the side. It would be great for 2 dogs but with one when she pulls it twists the whole pouch to the side which isn’t comfortable with my phone digging into my side. I had another leash in the past where the clip is right by the buckle in the front. That one seems to function better.
I wrote a 5 star review in July because I was really in love with this belt but recently the side hook snapped off on one of our walks. My dog was in the middle of the road and luckily stayed still long enough for me to grab him. It was incredibly scary. I figured it was just from wear and tear (even though it's only been six months). So I went for a hike today with him using the other side hook when he took off the hook just snapped off! This time he went running straight for a mud puddle. I finally got him but three hours and three baths later he smells like rotten eggs and my belt is no longer operational. My husky shepherd mix is 80 pounds. I think this belt is good for smaller and less active dogs but I'll be buying a more durable belt.
I use this with our 1 year old yellow lab. It’s perfect for trail running and I’m so happy that I bought it.
The clasp that hooks into the collar/harness is perfect weight for small dogs. (My dog is 10lbs). Also… love the detail on the compartments for doggie bags and treats and can even hold my phone. My dog likes the bungie aspect on the leash since it gives him a heads up when he is getting close to “too far”.
As new mom with a recently adopted dog, I bought this to suit walks and runs with a stroller and a dog. I love hands free dog walking and can't imagine going back to a traditional leash!
I bought the hands-free dog leash at the beginning of the pandemic last spring. I had no idea what I was missing in my life!! I have a small/medium-sized Jack Russell Terrier. He's a runner and can be a bit of a handful on walks and hikes sometimes. This has totally saved me on multiple occasions from him getting loose. It's amazing on hikes to have my hands available. I also love the pouches for holding my phone and/or car keys and treats. I agree that the side pockets are a tad small for a brand new roll of poo bags but they are super handy to have. Best of all?? I had an issue with the zipper on my pouch and One Trail replaced the entire thing for free. This company has excellent customer service and truly stands by its products. Thank you so much!
Great quality!! I love the doggy bag pocket as well, such a great addition.
My pup seems to love it too because she is running faster and so happy when she sees it before a run.
This is a great small backpack, I use this to carry my computer and I how it fits what I need and nothing more. Perfect for a minimalist lifestyle!
Looks great, good size for day hikes, seems like high quality.
But, I really won’t get a chance to use it for about a month when I head for AZ. for the winter.
I have had a few backpacks/daypacks and I am absolutely loving this daypack! There are plenty of pockets and the design is awesome! I have ample room for all of the stuff I carry around and for my phone and water bottle. I have to say it is the best backpack/daypack I have ever used! Well Done!
I really wanted to like this bag. The straps are cushy and wonderful. I like the chest strap too. I will be using this for international travel and found the pocket on the front is long and narrow and won't be accessible or useful. The inside 2 pockets are just plain with no smaller compartments leaving all your stuff to roll around and get lost. I will be returning the bag because it just won't fit my needs. Good construction though!
I use this backpack everyday to carry all of my school supplies. The things in my pack weigh 24 pounds and the pack has held up amazingly! I love the laptop slit and the water bottle holders on each side. This bag has tons of room!
