Hiking With the Extra Mile Rucksack!

Hello everyone! I’m Kate Schwanke and I am a dog mom to the sweetest little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Emma. You can find us over on Insta at @kateschwanke and @little.lady.emma, as well as on our YouTube Channel at kateschwanke! We are an active family who loves the outdoors and having adventures in Tennessee.

Today, Emma and I are super excited to team up with maxbone to talk all about their Extra Mile Rucksack. We recently went on a 2 ½ mile hike with it and it was just fabulous! There have been so many times we have wanted to take Emma with us on trips, but often times she was just too little to take on our adventures. Now with the Extra Mile Rucksack we can spend more time together while we enjoy our time outdoors as a family!

One of my favorite things about the Extra Mile Rucksack is that it is an actual backpack! There are some great shoulder style options available from Maxbone as well, but backpacks are ideal for outdoor adventures. Having my hands free was a must!


The Extra Mile Rucksack has so many great features, let’s talk about some of my top favorites! 

  • The mesh on this bag allows tons of airflow for your dog, so whether you have the top open or closed, your dog can still breathe easy. The mesh is also a very sturdy type of fabric, so you don’t have to worry about claws scratching it and ruining it.
  • There are several security points on and in this bag that help create a very safe space for your dog. This includes snap closures on the top, a drawstring opening, and a security clip on the inside of the bag to prevent your dog from jumping out.
  • This rucksack is dual purpose: The bottom of the bag completely zips off to become a bed! That is just so incredibly cool, I love it. So if you are traveling and you do not have the space to bring your dogs bed with you, just take your Extra Mile Rucksack!
