I'm big into adventuring with my favorite furry sidekick, Audrey dog! We do a lot of hiking in the white mountains of NH and catch a quick paddle on our kayak as much as possible!
Kurgo Loft Jacket
While this jacket isn't water proof, it does provide comfort and warmth on those extra chilly days. I use this often for my dog, Audrey, when we go out on day hikes and it's cold out - around 0 or negative. It is lightweight enough to pack with you on backpacking trips. The reversible feature is also cool so you can switch out colors!
Kurgo K9 Excursion Running Belt
Great running with dogs belt
This is everything. It's lightweight, has stretch where you need it, comes with a water bottle, and has multiple attachment points (think leash!). And the zippered pocket fits a phone, treats, car keys and has an easy access point for poop bags. It makes running with your dog carefree!
Mammut Wenaha Rain Jacket - Women's
I've had multiple rain jackets and this by far exceeded my expectations. The Goretex and the pit zips are all great features, which lends to breathability. It's lightweight and I can easily stuff in my pack at a moments notice. This has now become my go to jacket and I bring it everywhere.
MSR Pocket Rocket 2 Stove
Great option at the price
Can't really beat this little guy. It works wonders for backpacking and just plan old camping when you don't want to lug a big stove around. Also, packs done to nothing! And so lightweight! Love it!
Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket - Women's
Lightweight and compact
I have the hoodless version. This is my FAVORITE jacket. It's lightweight and can compact into nothing. Very versatile piece, and extremely warm when you need to layer up!
EMS Velocity 2 Tent
Awesome tent for the price
This is a great 2 person tent for the price. It's lightweight, uses a single pole design, and can be used multiple ways. There has been lots of space for both me and my dog, and setup is a breeze. I will be taking it on my first backpacking trip soon and cannot wait. Please reach out with questions!
Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller
This contraption works great. And while I haven't used it backpacking, I have used it in campgrounds across New England. The size is perfect (small!) and it uses butane which I always have on hand because of my stove! Highly recommend!
Nite Ize Raddog All-in-One Collar and Leash
Name says it all!
If you have your dog off leash often, this product is a must. This is my go to for all our hiking and kayaking adventures. I have lost countless amount of leashes and now I don't worry. I can leash my dog whenever I need to and the best part? It's right in her collar. No need to carry extra gear! I can't say enough good things about it! Reach out if you have specific questions!
Kammok Python Straps
Perfect for camping
While I use these to suspend my single Roo, they also come in handy when you need to hang up/dry off gear. They are lightweight and tree friendly!
Kammok Roo Hammock
I can't say enough good things about this hammock. While I have the older, original version, it goes everywhere with me. It's great to setup in camp, and small enough to pack in your suitcase when you travel (I took it to Australia!). It's strong, lightweight features make it a very versatile option.
Kurgo Baxter Backpack - Dog Backpack
Love this pack!
I needed a pack with smaller saddle bags. As much as I loved the Ruffwear I had, my dog is too low to the ground so would continually get stuck in some areas on the trails. While I don't normally have Audrey carry a lot, when we do backpacking trips it is nice when she can "share the load". It fits great and the added handle helps when assistance is needed. Great pack, and the lifetime warranty that comes with Kurgo products is a nice bonus!
Kurgo Journey Air Dog Harness
Great running harness
I use this when I go running with my dog. It's a great quality, easy to slip on, and the harness adds extra stability when I need to grab my dog in certain situations. I usually pair this harness with the Kurgo Springback leash.
Kurgo Zippy Dog Bowl
Best travel bowl out there
Zippered it can fit into your pocket. And with the attached carabiner, it easily attaches to yours or your dogs pack. Open, it acts as a food and/or water bowl. I own 2 and take them everywhere - camping, backpacking, daily walks - you name it!
Ruffwear Headwater Collar
Dirty dog - no problem!
While I have the older version of this collar, the quality is unparalleled. It is stink proof - which is exactly what I needed as I have an extremely dirty dog. There is no puddle/lake/pond that she will not explore! The quality is phenomenal, it's thin, and it doesn't smell. This is my everyday collar.
Cotopaxi Luzon Del Dia 18L Backpack
Great day pack!
This is a great day pack for any and all adventures. I use this hiking with my dog, locally and when we hit up larger day hikes. It's lightweight and extremely versatile!
