Updated for 2013! Reflecting Ruffwear’s commitment to complete adjustability and a customized fit, the Approach Pack enables your four-legged hiking companion to accompany you on your adventures with his very own pack in tow! Two large zippered saddlebags provide ample room for food, water, bowls and other gear.
The Approach Pack's low-profile saddlebags are designed to withstand the rigors of backcountry activity, provide storage space and keep the load comfortably balanced. A weight-forward design makes certain that the load is ideally situated to avoid hampering your dog's natural gait. A contoured, athletic cut provides your dog with a close-fitting performance fit. Eliminating the need for extraneous straps, a patented Web Master spider-web harness provides superior fit, load-carrying stability and support. The interior lining of the harness utilizes foam to cushion the weight and protect your dog from excessive rubbing and hot spots. Your dog is further protected from rub by a fleece-lined covering that wraps around the Approach Pack's woven straps. Reflective trim adds visibility and makes the Approach Pack easy to spot at night.
Side release buckles and sturdy hardware make the Approach Pack easy to take on and off and provide multiple adjustment points to ensure that your dog enjoys the best possible fit. With your dog’s comfort and safety in mind, Ruffwear has strategically tucked the buckles beneath fabric to cut down on hot spots and irritation.
An integrated handle on the top of the Approach Pack allows you to easily carry the pack when your dog isn't wearing it and serves as an assistance handle when your dog needs a helping hand for on-trail obstacles. Waterproof zippers on the saddlebags ensure that the contents of the pack remain dry and secure.
The Ruffwear Approach Pack is also available in your choice of color and size. Please reference the sizing chart for measurement instructions and suggested fit. NOTE: For in-between sizes, choose the smaller pack for a lighter load and less bulk.
