We recently purchased Ruffwear's new Haul Bag, which was released on January 30, 2015. It has an $80 retail value, but we got it for only $64, with free shipping, from Backcountry K-9 using the coupon code "FEB2015" for 20% off any full-priced item. The code expires February 16, 2015. There are no color or size options for the Haul Bag. It is made out of green and gray polyester and has a 25 liter capacity. The bag is hand-wash only and has a name tag on the side of it. It has both handles and a shoulder strap to carry it with and several pockets on the inside and outside of the bag and two zipper compartments to store things in. It's very easy to get things out of the inside of the bag because of how wide the bag opens up.

Everything we packed into our Ruffwear Haul Bag

Ruffwear made the Haul Bag very versatile. We packed ours as though we were going on a 2-day show weekend, and planning on having some other fun, with 2 dogs. Our dog food, grooming products, toys, etc. all fit in the bag with room to spare.

The Haul Bag uses a frame, so it opens up very wide and everything is easily accessible.

There are three mesh pockets on the inside of the Haul Bag. I love that I can use them to hold my bottles upright so that nothing spills. We filled the pockets with these supplies:

The Ruffwear Haul Bag's second zipper compartment is on the inside of it, across from the inside pockets. Here's what we put inside, with room left over:

The center of the inside of the Ruffwear Haul Bag is deep and has plenty of room in it for gear, even with the pockets and zipper compartment packed with things. Here's what we put in it:

Conclusion

I love this bag because of its wide frame opening and its awesome pockets, and I can't wait to take it to a dog show. I think it is worth the $64 I spent on it, but that its $80 retail price is a little steep for a bag its size. If you missed the 20% off offer, watch Backcountry K-9's Facebook Page because they post about 20% off discounts periodically.
