I have owned a Granite Gear Pulk more than a half dozen years now. I love it. I needed to get groceries from the truck to my remote location residence in the mountains. I tried a kid's plastic sled first, carefully "postholing" to step in the same step, holding the edge of the plastic sled, scooting the sled along. My Akita was very interested in the proceedings. I thought there must be a better way, but, I admit my first thought was a skijorn harness for my dog and he could pull it. But I purchased a Granite Gear Pulk, adapting the skijorn harness to the pulk.

Ed's Wilderness Systems Snow Clipper

user rating: 4 of 5 (1 review)

A Review of Ed’s Wilderness Systems Snow Clipper Pulk by A pulk (from Finnish pulkka; Scandinavian for a low-slung sled) is used to carry supplies or transport a child over snow. In the right circumstances a pulk offers advantages over backpacking. It is an easy way to move a lot of gear; more gear than one can comfortably stash in a backpack. So if you are setting up a base camp, hauling supplies to a cabin or outfitting a scout troop, you might consider a pulk. The addition of a rigid harness system is what differentiates a sled from a pulk.
