THE STALLION LIVES ON

Stallion  
Stallion
"Greetings. I sent you some photos (on your site) probably five years ago of our son in the Stallion. He is now nine. :-) Well, we thought he was our one and only kiddo but we hung onto the backpack for some reason. Turns out we weren't done. Enter Nora who is now 16 months. Here is a picture of her with Daddy on a hike today in the 9 year old pack (with the newer addition of the sun/rain shade). Brother was at school. Anyway, the pack still works like a champ. It was a wet, steep trail today and I kept thinking that if Daddy slipped and fell, I was glad Nora was in that tank of a backpack!
Cheers to you,
Scott and Lisa Lindsay (the aging parents of Toby and Nora)"


THE CAMPER, GOING STRONG

"The enclosed photos are of my grandson who was six years old at the time. He loved his "Camper" Backpack and had no trouble carrying 20 lbs on that trip. He will be 11 in May and has been in Scouts for several years. He has done many more backpack [trips] with his "Camper" and still loves it."

RUBY TAKES IN THE VIEW

Dog Perch Backpack Beagle  Dog Perch Backpack Beagle
"We bought your carrier for our little beagle, Ruby, because she's getting on in years, but still likes to go... and we like to have her with us.... [She] was more than happy to get into the carrier once we got to Berkeley Springs, WV, for a quick walk around town—whole other perspective from having your nose to the ground the whole time and seeing nothing.
She enjoyed that walk, too, and folks enjoyed seeing her. We even got to go into a couple of shops that didn't allow pets. Good for her. Good for us.
We all love the new carrier and the possibilities it affords.
Here's a couple of shots. The first one is from our first trip. The second one is from our test drive in yard. (It will be on the poster should she ever run for president.)
Thanks for making such a wonderful product and for obviously understanding dogs and what they need to be comfortable and happy."

Mt Rainier is just around the corner and about 10K feet higher!.... [Also] here is a great panoramic with his buddies who were using school packs so Max and I were doing most of the packing! "

MISHA ENJOYS HIS SENIOR YEARS

Dog Perch Backpack
"[M]y dog will be 15 this summer. He likes being out with us, but can no longer walk as far. We walk him as far as he can go, and then he rides the rest of the way. Your backpack has been amazing - not bulky like a stroller and we can hike easily with it. He is 22lbs and I can carry him for hours with your pack even though he is 1/5 of my weight! I am never sore the next day. Thank you so much for helping my buddy Misha enjoy his senior years! Here is a photo of us at the White House."

HAPPY MICAH!

Stallion Baby Carrier Backpack
"My husband and I purchased the Stallion child carrier from Tough Traveler in mid-February and have been thoroughly THRILLED with it! Our son, Micah, loves being in it, and it makes hauling him around much easier. He's a big guy - almost 30 lbs. at 11 months, so our backs are thanking us as well. Here's a picture of how happy he is in it; I think he's saying, "Tough Traveler is number ONE!"

Thank you for your wonderful product!"

Thank you!"

Stallion Child Carrier

"We're nearing the end of carrying our son in the Stallion as he approaches his fourth birthday. Though we said that last year and my husband keeps using it for longer hikes that Toby can't yet do. It has served us well and still looks brand new. The storage area has been great. There have been trips through this spring (no photos of those as I was not along) and I am guessing there will be a few more for as long as Daddy's back holds up. Here are photos of Toby through the years. Time passes too quickly.

First photo is at 7 months, second at 12 months, third at 13 months (first camping trip), fourth at two years, fifth at three years (and still able to fall asleep in the pack!). Most of these photos were taken in Maine."

ONE OF THE REMOTEST CORNERS OF THE PLANET - KID CARRIER

Kid Carrier Child Carrier


"I work with Great Game Travel Afghanistan. We run trekking operations in the Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan and the Pamir Mountains that border Tajikistan, China and Pakistan. I typically go with my family into the region once or twice a season. I have a Kid Carrier that we used last year with our son... There are long days and some rugged terrain...so we like be able to carry the boys at least part of the way. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that we love your packs and I wanted to attach a picture from last year. Our son, Aedan, is riding with a local Wakhi guide. He rode about 6 hours in it that day...through streams and over several high passes (14,000ft). He sang and laughed the entire way. The Wakhi people thought the pack was great. You can now say that your pack has gone to one of the remotest corners of the planet and admired by incredible mountain people.

A LITTLE HELP ON THOSE LONG DAY HIKES - DOG PERCH

Dog Perch Backpack  Dog Perch Backpack

"...We recently bought a tough traveler dog perch pack. Our dogs are 11 and 12 years old, and need a little help on those long day hikes. We tried it out for the first time last week at Grayson Highlands in SW VA. This worked perfect! The dogs loved it and one of them fell asleep while we were hiking. I only bought one pack, so the dogs have to take turns. I may well end up purchasing a second pack for my wife to carry! Thanks!!!"

"We purchased a Stallion child carrier about a year ago.   We've used the backpack hiking in the Adirondacks, but we get the most use from our carrier navigating the urban jungle of New York City where we live.  The baby carrier has been indispensible this tough, snowy winter, as a stroller is impossible to use on the slushy, messy streets.  A backpack is also the best way to take our son safely on the subway...."  Becky Schwig, Feb. 03.
