MuttRuk Phoenix 14 Backpack | Built for You and Your Dog

$28,093

209

Whether your adventure is a walk through a city park, or a trek to the top of a mountain, adventuring with dogs comes with its own set of needs. Currently, that involves grabbing LOTS of little pouches and packs. And if you're anything like us, that takes a lot of time. And somehow your phone is still out of reach, your sunglasses still get lost, and you're still asking a friend to dig for your keys. 

Enter MuttRuk

With miles of trails under our feet and paws, we felt there had to be a better solution for getting outdoors with all that you and your dog need.

Imagine grabbing just ONE pack with a place for both your gear as well as your dogs. Easily accessible pockets for treats, waste bags, even those stinky little used waste bags, water, sunglasses, keys, phone and more. Yea, we thought that sounded pretty great too.

So we started drafting and designing and prototyping and trail testing.

And We Think You're Going to Love this Solution

Waist Straps that Work

Right at your fingertips, the Phoenix 14 waist straps get to work for your dog providing accessible pockets with washable, zip-out liners, perfect for housing treats or even a used waste bag. An integrated waste bag dispenser ensures they are never forgotten, and a quick-connect leash loop provides the perfect solution for short hands-free needs.


Shoulder Straps You Need

Right up front, the Phoenix 14 shoulder straps get to work for you providing four (4) integrated, microfiber lined, zipper pockets. Keep things like your sunglasses, a large phone, a small leash, tools for safety, keys, ID and more within seconds reach without needing to stop to unpack.

Low-Profile and Stylish

The Phoenix 14 offers 14 liters of pack space in a comfortable and stylish low-profile design. It can house plenty of water with a water bladder compatible port and sleeve in addition to durable, oversized exterior pockets that fit a real water bottle. We're talking those 40oz lugs. Go ahead and bring them so you and your dog will never go thirsty. 

You and Your Dog Deserve to #takeamuttruk

A lifetime of outdoor adventure and years of backpack exploration have led to the prototyping and final design of this pack. Now, our next goal is to make this pack available to all of you. And we felt Kickstarter was the perfect place to do it. By using Kickstarter and receiving your help, we can bring this pack to all of you with both quality construction and at an affordable price. As a Kickstarter backer, you'll have exclusive access to our debut discount price before this product hits stores at a higher retail price. You'll also have some other cool rewards to consider! Check them out below.

YOUR SHARING HELPS! 

The Little Details

Lifetime Guarantee

We stand by the construction and design of our products. If for any reason there is a manufacturers defect that causes deterioration, please contact us directly. We will either get a brand new product sent out, or will offer a full refund.

Return Policy

We've tested the Phoenix 14 and our products through and through; on many different backs and in many different environments. This pack is tough, it's comfortable, and it will be more than you imagine. If for any reason you are not satisfied, simply send the pack back to us within 30 days for a full refund.

Shipping

If our shipping carrier attempts delivery and is unable to deliver due to wrong address or change of address without notifying us, it will be the buyer's responsibility to pay the shipping fee to reship the order. When you receive your tracking number, keep an eye out!

International Shipping

Unfortunately, there is no legal way around customs. MuttRuk cannot mark our products as gifts. Pricing does not include VAT, CST or other country taxes. This means that the buyer is responsible for shipping and any duty or taxes that may be incurred.

You may use this tool to assist you in calculating duties. Remember to convert the U.S. dollars to your local currency:  https://www.simplyduty.com/import-calculator/

Typically, your local customs authorities will contact you asking for payment to have your order processed through customs. Once you make that payment to the customs broker your order will be processed for final delivery.

Risks and challenges

We've worked hard for over a year to ensure we are on top of our design and development. With over 6 rounds of prototyping, we feel confident in the final product we are going to deliver to you.

We are partnered with a reputable manufacturer that delivers quality and meets expectations.

During development and supply chain processes, there are bound to be a few hiccups. Whether that's a delayed shipping container, or a natural disaster, things can happen that might make this process less than a piece of cake. But we really want you to have your cake, so we'll be right here with you throughout the whole process with open communication and problem-solving should any issues arise.

You're awesome for backing this project, and we'll aim to make you feel that way!
