The Ruffwear Approach Pack is ideal for day hikes and overnight adventures. It has a customizable fit with five points of adjustment which allows for full range of motion. Each Approach Pack is equipped with two leash attachment points: a single-piece, anodized aluminum V-ring and a webbing loop. The padded handle and non-slip girth straps offer good load dispersion for controlled and comfortable lifting.

Trail-ready details like stash pockets and external gear loops add ease to your everyday hiking needs.

The experts at Ruffwear recommend having your dog carry no more than 25% of their own body weight within the pack. To ease your dog into the pack, start out with lighter loads and work up to the heavier packed loads while he or she gets used to the pack.
