Kurgo Launches K9 Rucksack Via Kickstarter

It will ship in April.




(PRESS RELEASE) SALISBURY, MA — Kurgo, the pet travel, pet safety and adventure experts, announced the release of the K9 Rucksack, a mountaineering silhouetted pack and a newly engineered way to carry your pet in the company’s first Kickstarter campaign.

Designed for small dogs (and cats too), the K9 Rucksack is tough enough for backcountry adventures, yet comfortable enough for a daily commute.

“For a long time, we have been looking for ways to get direct design feedback from our awesome supporters in the early stages of product development,” said Kitter Spater, founder and chief creative officer of Kurgo. “We believe in an evolutionary design process that starts with the consumer and never ends; we are always looking to improve our products and designs using real people and real dogs to help with the process, and a Kickstarter campaign is the perfect way to execute that.”

Designed using water-resistant fabrics throughout, with a waterproof and muck-proof Armor-sole bottom, the K9 Rucksack can be wiped clean and includes removable, machine-washable interior padding. Able to fit pets up to 25 pounds, the K9 Rucksack’s contoured shoulder straps, air mesh back padding and sternum strap offer support and comfort for long excursions and commutes.

For the on-the-go commuter, the K9 Rucksack includes a separate padded and fleece-lined compartment for a laptop, doubling as a water bladder slot for the adventurous, a tablet pocket, two utility loops for additional gear, zipped organizational pockets, and like all Kurgo products, a bottle opener. The interior swivel tether latches onto any harness or collar keeping a dog or cat secure at all times.

The K9 Rucksack will ship in April for KickStarter pledgers and will be available at retail in the summer and will retail for $115.
