Ramius Flynnwrote a review of Ruffwear Approach Dog Pack on March 13, 2012
I purchased the Ruffwear Approach pack for my miniature schnauzer about three years ago. Since then, it has been taken up 14ers, on backpacking trips, through rivers/streams, from sand dunes to snowy trails, and on many trips in town. The pack is still holding up in terms of its stitching, material, and overall condition.
Bottom line: this is a durable product that can easily handle all of the bumps, scrapes, and weather your dog can throw at it.
