Ruffwear Launches New 2022 Spring Collection
April 11, 2022
BEND, OR (April 11, 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Ruffwear, the leading manufacturer of performance dog gear built to inspire dog and human connections outdoors, is excited to launch two new collections for Spring 2022. The Camp & Hike and Backpacking Collections offer gear that provides durability for camp life and trail life, while the Backpacking Collection focuses on the unique needs of multi-day trekking in the backcountry.
“At Ruffwear, we’re about unleashing possibility through a life of discovery and these new products invite outdoor dog-loving humans and their pups to join us on the journey,” says Ruffwear Director of Marketing, Susan Strible. “Our latest gear intro is designed with campers, hikers, and backpackers in mind. Whether we’re heading out on our favorite trail, or discovering new ones, the best adventures are the ones we share with our dogs.”
For Spring 2022, Ruffwear is leaning into Waypoints, the kind that are more than a set of coordinates to pass through on your way from here to there. With your dog by your side, they’re the places made of memories and full of possibility. Whether it’s a summit, a shoreline, or a certain spot on the trail, Ruffwear invites you to retrace, celebrate, and share the Waypoints that mark your journey with your canine trail buddy. These are the places made of memories and full of possibility.
