Groundbird Gear Turtle Top Quilt
The Groundbird Gear Turtle Top Quilt is the only ultralight backpacking dog-warmth solution! It attaches to your dog with a comfy integral PJ harness so the quilt stays with your dog when they get up and spin in the middle of the night. When your dog sleeps curled up, the quilt covers them completely. Unlike "sleeping bag" dog sacks, in the topquilt, your dog can easily self-regulate their body temp: if they get warm, they can stretch out and vent. Leading edge and rear corners can be clipped back into a jacket variation. Packs to the size of a one liter bottle, weighs on average 8oz and comes in different warmth variations. Place order

Groundbird Gear is the preferred brand by long distance hikers and weekend warriors.
Bobwhite believes in lighter loads for dogs, starting with the gear weight itself and bag capacities that make sense! It is nearly impossible to find the right gear for your trail companion. Store bought mass-produced packs and doggie sleeping bags are typically overly large, overly heavy and many dogs have issues with the fit, which causes injury especially on a multi-day backpacking trip.
To have a successful hike, your dog's gear should be as functional as your own. Our team makes GBG specific to your dog based on your submitted measurements, in Baltimore, Maryland. We guarantee a chafe-free fit, made with the same ingenuity that you love in your own gear!
