Backpacks are an efficient way to carry everything you need for your day. Humans everywhere use them, but this smart Kickstarter promises to turn your pup into a carries-his-own-weight commuter too. Or at the very least, an adorable backpacking hipster.


Enter the Dog Pack, a combination harness and backpack for small and medium dogs of all shapes. (They’re not yet available for larger dogs quite yet). Strap your pooch in one of these and slip necessary treats, water, plastic bags, toys and other accessories into their pack to save room in yours. They’ll be toting their active gear completely unaware of how adorable they look — win-win, especially since their well-equipped appearance is likely to be a cute conversation starter.


The brainchild of DJ and handbag designer Maggie Modena (aka Maggie Welsh), the Dog Pack is currently available in four four printed designs for a Kickstarter pledge of $45. Plus those four designs are also available as matching human options that are paired with the puppy counterparts. That combo will be available for a Kickstarter pledge of $345 (retail: $445). We’d call it a fair price to be the most fashionable mommy-doggy duo on the block.
