My biggest concern was the sizing. My dog (a border collie mix) is 50lbs which put her right on the medium/large line. I ordered both sizes but ended up keeping the medium. The large seemed to fit the length of her body while the medium was shorter and rested closer to her shoulders. Because it's important to avoid putting weight on a dog's lower back, (it causes strain), I went with the medium.
I love the quick release (so I don't have to take the whole thing off when we walk to the park) and the quality seems great! Our walks have improved as she has a "job to do" now and can't be bothered with chasing squirrels or pulling the leash. I put a few soup cans in there for extra weight so she gets a good work out even when I can only give her a short walk. So far we have a happy dog and a happy owner!

Well made, easy to put on pet, simple to adjust for fit. very tailored looking. Using to add weight for a workout for a hyperactive pet. She loves it.

Our dog is a lab mix and has quite a bit of energy. Just walking wasn't enough to wear him out. We got a back pack for him thinking that it would help to give him a job to do. He wasn't too fond of it at first, but now he gets very excited whenever we get it out. It has helped solve our problem with him digging in our yard, as he is more content and feels as though he has already completed his job for the day. It is also very convenient that we can just pull the backpack off and it just leaves a light layer that stays on him. If we are at the lake he can run in the water after our hikes without taking the whole thing off.
