Hi, I'm Hannah! This blog is here to help document the adventures of Ender and I. 

Groundbird Gear

I've received a lot of questions about Ender's pack and I cannot believe its taken me this long to write about an item that I love so much. Groundbird gear is a small company with a passion for high quality products. Originally designed for thru-hiking, these packs are not only gorgeous and completely customizable, they are also unbelievably durable! When I started searching for a pack last summer, I couldn't find anything that was worth the cost; the packs I looked at ranged from $190 to 250$. but I was worried about them slipping around on my pups back or fitting uncomfortably around his oddly-shaped body. Having a lovely concoction of a mutt (Rhodesian Ridgeback/Staffy/Amazingness) makes finding dog gear difficult sometimes. I didn't want to spend 200$ on something that may or may not fit right. Then I found Groundbird gear. This company is almost too good to be true and has completely changed our hiking lifestyle. For 170$, I got a harness sewn to Ender's measurements, and a pack with colors of my choice! I loved it so much that I convinced my friend to get one for her mutt (Golden Retriever/Greyhound/Pure Bliss), and now these two are the cutest hiking duo around. They are constantly complimented on their packs while we are on the trail, and I always make sure to express how amazing these packs are. 

Ender is sporting the Trekking Roll Top pack in Forest Green and Dark Red Wine. Riley has on the Weekend Zipper Top Pack in the Americana color scheme. The zipper pack is really nice to get in and out of, but I personally like the look of the roll top better. One of my favorite things about these packs is how well they stay on. These two pups romped in the grass, wrestling, sprinting, and chasing one another for 30 minutes, and the packs weren't even close to coming off. They stay perfectly balanced on the dogs back--keeping the weight evenly distributed--which prevents the dogs from hurting their backs. I can't emphasize enough how much I love these products. Its worth mentioning that Groundbird Gear didn't ask me to write anything about them, I just love this company so much that I couldn't help it. Thanks so much for reading!

All our love,
Hannah & Ender xx
