It's a rule of the backcountry: Every man – and dog – carries his own stuff. The Dog Pack allows four-legged hikers to lug their food and gear comfortably. Fleece-lined straps and a tapered torso design keep the bags snug to the body without restricting movement. Available in three sizes, so it fits a wide variety of breeds. Our gear-testing golden retriever wore his without complaint during a long trek through Idaho's Clearwater National Forest. [$50; mountainsmith.com]
