Good question! It's because we have sold out all the black Extended harnesses so we have nothing to pair the pouches with. The second is to please our customers. So many customers who previously go the Extended harness now want to buy the pouches. As we do not offer pouches alone, this seemed like a perfect opportunity to make everyone happy (especially at that price).
Because we are selling them for less than what they cost us to make.
Modular All-in-One Harness
Imagine having just one dog harness that acts as a Dog Pack, that can turn into simple day-to-day crash-tested harness.
When you get the pouches, you can convert your extended harness into a dog pack at anytime.
Sometimes you want your pup to carry a lot of stuff but sometimes the pouches are just too big for a few hours hike. With the Ascension, you can adjust each pouch between a big and a small setting.
