Traildog Testing: Ruffwear Polar Trex Boots, Powder Hound Jacket and Singletrak Backpack

Timber and Craig tackle the old Pine Crest Tungsten mining road up to Morgan Peak near Bishop, CA. It’s a late season hike up a scree pile of a trail the day before a massive storm. It’s freezing cold, windy and there is already snow on the ground, so what better way to test out a few key gear pieces from Ruffwear. Join the fellas as they talk through some key usage points on the Polar Trex boots and their approach to layering dog jackets, like the Powder Hound and the Quinzee in cold weather situations. As an added bonus you get to see the boys do some rope climbing to get out of a deep and loose drainage washout and explore an old mining cave. This is definitely an adventure worth repeating in the spring. Stopped at 10k feet, Craig and Timber are determined to try again and conquer the 13k peak that is Mt. Morgan!
