New Gear for Spring 2020: Discovering the Front Range
- Sam Collier
Spring 2020 has us digging into what it means to find purpose and healing in the outdoors with our dogs. It's a season ripe with promise and potential – a season that stokes our imagination for what discoveries lay ahead as we embark on the road less traveled together.
We're exploring how these gifts come with the responsibility to protect our planet's last remaining wild places. We're discovering how our canine companions help guide us in choosing growth over comfort as we navigate this wild journey we call life. And we're learning that even the most impossible obstacles can be overcome – and the simplest experiences can bring unimaginable joy.
This season's new gear is an invitation to you and your number-one trail buddy to be curious, take the first step, and start down your own road less traveled.
Front Range® Harness [new design]
The Front Range Harness is a key piece of gear for canines embarking on a life of adventure with their humans. It's a padded everyday harness that is easy to put on and comfortable for dogs to wear. With the Front Range, you have two leash attachment options: an aluminum V-ring centered on the dog's back for everyday walks, and reinforced webbing at the dog's chest to redirect dogs that pull on leash. The ID pocket keeps dog tags quiet and easily accessible, and the reflective trim and light loop for The Beacon™ boost visibility in low-light conditions.
What's new? Six new colors in an even tougher fabric that holds its color over time, and a light loop for The Beacon™ Safety Light.
Front Range™ Leash [new design]
The Front Range Leash combines a strong connection with an elegant design for a lightweight, comfortable walking experience. Inspired by the customer-favorite Front Range® Harness, it includes a padded, ergonomic handle, unique Ruffwear-designed hardware, and bold design. Sturdy yet light, it keeps you comfortably connected to your canine companion wherever your adventures take you.
What's new? A new look and feel with six colors in an ombré pattern to coordinate with the Front Range Harness.
Front Range™ Collar [new]
The Front Range Collar is an everyday dog collar – an essential in every canine's kit – with an easy-to-use side-release buckle. The ombré pattern gives a nod to the shifting hues of the nature-inspired colors that make up our Front Range™ Collection. It includes Ruffwear's signature collar features: an aluminum V-ring, separate ID tag attachment point, a silicone tag silencer, and strong and comfortable webbing that holds its color.
What's new: Everything!
Crag™ Leash [new colors]
The Crag Leash (formerly known as the Slackline Leash) is an adjustable-length dog leash that can be hand-held or waist-worn. Fully extend to 6 feet for relaxed walks or more room while running, or shorten to 3.5 feet when looking to keep your pup close. Easily adjust the length on the go with the metal slider.
It includes Ruffwear's signature leash features like a padded handle, a convenient accessory loop for pick-up bags or small clip-on items, and strong webbing that holds its color. Integrated reflectivity in both the patterned and solid webbing helps boost visibility for dogs and humans in low-light conditions.
What's new? It's the much-loved performance of the former Slackline Leash with a new name, new colors, and – for the first time – patterns!
Crag™ Collar [new colors]
The Crag Collar is an everyday dog collar with reflective Tubelok™ webbing and an easy-to-use side-release buckle. Reflective thread is woven into the comfortable and durable webbing, available in solid colors and – for the first time – patterns inspired by ways light naturally occurs in our favorite landscapes.
The Crag Collar is packed full of Ruffwear's essential collar features: an aluminum V-ring, separate ID tag attachment point, and a silicone tag silencer.
What's new? It's still the go-to reflective collar, now with new colors, and – for the first time – patterns.
Quick Draw™ Leash [new design]
The Quick Draw Leash can be worn around a dog's collar when not in use, giving dogs off-leash freedom and humans the option of a short leash when needed. It clips onto and wraps around any collar, securing with a debris-resistant hook-and-loop closure and standing at the ready for a quick pull at the tab when a call to be on leash arises.
What's new? This wearable leash gets an updated look and a new debris-resistant molded hook-and-loop closure – something our designers chose to improve its holding power when wrapped around the collar in off-leash mode.
Top Rope™ Collar [new colors]
The Top Rope Collar offers strength and style with our metal side-release Talon Buckle™. Positive retention and peace of mind come standard. The collar’s design uses the Talon Buckle's weight to conveniently position the V-ring clip at the top of the dog's neck for quick leash clip-in.
It's packed full of Ruffwear’s signature collar features: an aluminum V-ring, separate ID tag attachment point, silicone tag silencer, and strong and comfortable webbing that holds its color. Integrated reflectivity helps boost visibility in low-light conditions.
What's new? Still strong, still reflective – now in new colors and patterns.
Patroller™ Leash [new color]
The Patroller Leash is an adjustable leash that can be worn around the waist like a belt for hands-free carrying when not in use – giving dogs and humans a smooth transition between on-leash and off-leash without skipping a beat. Inspired by working dogs and their handlers, the Patroller Leash is perfect for anyone who wants to keep a leash conveniently on hand while their canine companion explores, works, or plays.
