BEND, OR (October 5, 2020) – Ruffwear, the leading manufacturer of performance dog gear built to enhance and inspire exploration for outdoor adventurers and their human companions, is excited to launch their new fall/winter line. This season’s gear equips dogs to get outside with their humans in the colder months ahead – and stay warm while doing so. Fall and winter classics get an updated look and feel, and a new piece of human gear offers home-trail solutions.
“In times of uncertainty, our dogs remind us that the regular routine of stepping outside together can create a sense of calm and quiet purpose,” says Ruffwear Director of Marketing, Susan Strible. “The pleasure our dogs get from time spent outdoors brings us joy too, and keeps us grounded, tuned into the things that matter. This season, we’re offering new gear to inspire you and your pup to spend more time outside together, no matter the weather.”
THE MOMENTS IN BETWEEN
The joy and freedom dogs bring to our lives is infectious, drawing us into the present moment. Their presence is grounding. It’s not always easy to recognize the connection we’re developing while we’re in it. Sometimes, that recognition comes to us during moments of calm in between the adventures, when we’re savoring our newest happy memory, reflecting on the scenery around our campsite, or crawling into the tent with tired legs and achy feet.
This season, Ruffwear celebrates those calm moments of reflection in between adventures. It is often in these quiet moments that we realize just how much our canine companions shape our lives.

BEHIND THIS SEASON’S NEW PATTERN: GLACIER
Whether peering deep into a crevasse or ogling the sprawling vastness from high above, glaciers are inherently artful in nature. And contrasting their grandeur and sheer power is a vulnerability to their very existence. This was all on Ruffwear product designer Liz’s mind as she developed Glacier – this season’s new pattern. Their abstract nature lends well to the roller printing process used for the brand’s fleece patterns. Ruffwear hopes the result draws attention to these disappearing masses of ice. The new Glacier pattern can be found on Ruffwear’s Climate Changer™ Fleece Jacket and the Climate Changer™ Fleece Pullover.
