South Hound is a growing community of hounds and humans who love exploring the wilds of South Africa together.
We want to make it easy for you to find new places and build your memories by creating functional, classic gear for your adventure buddy.
Whether you are hitting trails, bagging peaks or fording wild waters, we have something planned for you.
Our flagship product is the first to release.
Introducing our SCOUT PACK. Every adventurer needs a good pack. Our Scout Pack is named after Scout, the adventure dog that inspired it all.
Launched in 2021, South Hound was born from the many hours Kerry and her collieX, Scout, spent exploring the mountains around Cape Town, South Africa.
Kerry wanted gear for Scout to make adventuring easier. She wanted gear that was locally made, with a classic adventure aesthetic, that would survive the trails. When she couldn't find what she was looking for, she started looking for a manufacturing partner to make it happen.
After a few wrong turns (but, really, is any adventure a proper adventure without some wrong turns and challenging side-tracks), she connected with an amazing team making human adventure gear in Cape Town and South Hound became a reality.
