The Ruffwear Approach Pack is an everyday pack with excellent performance, fit, and functionality. It provides dogs with the ability to efficiently carry a load, generating instant four-legged motivation to explore. The integrated harness, combined with the lightweight materials and a streamlined design, is comfortable and allows dogs to carry more trail necessities. Great for day hikes and overnight adventures. It's recommended that your dog carry no more than 25% of their body weight in their dog pack. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with a light load and work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing the pack. The Approach Pack is available in 5 sizes. Select the correct size based on your dog's girth (measurement around the widest part of the rib cage). XX-Small: 13-17 inches (33-43 cm); X-Small: 17-22 inches (43-56 cm); Small: 22-27 inches (56-69 cm); Medium: 27-32 inches (69-81 cm); Large/X-Large: 32-42 inches (81-107 cm). Washing Instructions: Secure the fasteners; Hand wash with mild detergent; Air dry.
Features & Highlights
- EFFICIENT LOAD CARRYING: The Approach Pack features a weight-forward saddlebag design that provides your dog with a comfortable method to carry the essentials for your trip. The pack's convenient, easy-access stash pockets are perfect for often used items and the capacity is ideal for overnight adventures.
- COMFORTABLE AND DURABLE: The Approach's streamlined design and lightweight materials and components allow for comfortable fit and long-term durability. The padded, comfortable handle offers an optimal balance point with good load dispersion for controlled and comfortable lifting (lift only as high as your dog can safely jump, as the buckles are not strength-rated for high-angle rope work).
- INTEGRATED HARNESS AND REFLECTIVE TRIM: The Approach's integrated harness features provide for leash walking (clip in via the V-ring), lifting (via the handle), and pulling (via the tow eye). The integrated, reflective trim allows you to keep an eye on your dog, even in low-light visibility environments.
- NON-SLIP STRAPS AND SHELTERED BUCKLES: The Approach's non-slip girth straps are easy to adjust, secure, and have pads to distribute load and increase comfort while lifting. The sheltered buckles stay in place for easy, one-handed clipping, and are protected from wear. 5 points of adjustment allow you to create a customizable fit specifically for your dog enabling a full range of motion.
