The PoopPac: A new accessory for dog-walkers

May 20, 2010 |  8:44 am

Who knew poop could look this good?

The Santa Barbara-based company PoopPac has just released a new lightweight pet waste carrier that allows you to carry your dog's droppings like a purse or fanny pack.

Susan Davidson came up with the idea while watching people exercise their dogs on the beach in Santa Barbara one morning. "I was struck by just how many people were holding their 'used bag' in one hand, and their coffee in the other – yuk!" she writes on the PoopPac website. 

The PoopPac's patented design has two separate compartments. The main compartment features a wipe-clean lining and charcoal filter to contain your bagged package -- and its odors. A separate compartment can hold personal items such as keys, phone or iPod.

The pac measures 7-by-5½-by-3¼ inches and is machine washable. It comes with a built-in belt clip, removable wrist lanyard and a removable carabiner clip. An optional removable shoulder strap is sold separately for $4.95.

Available exclusively at www.pooppac.com for $29.95 plus tax and shipping.
