    Trail pup.

    Your dog loves to keep you company on day hikes, and she's even more excited if she feels like she has a job to do. Stash some treats, a collapsible bowl, and a leash or some small water bottles inside saddlebags of the Ruffwear Approach Pack and let your pooch haul her own supplies. The Approach features a harness designed for comfort and stability under light loads, and the saddlebags have a low, streamlined shape that complements your dog's balance. A padded assistance handle gives you a quick way to lift your pooch over otherwise-insurmountable obstacles, and Ruffwear's designers were careful not to include any excessive straps or attachments that might hang up in bushes or low-hanging branches. This Ruffwear dog pack comes in five different sizes so it'll fit securely on pint-sized pups or burly beasts.

    • Let your high-energy pooch carry their own supplies (beer)
    • Padded handle to grab your pup like a duffel bag
    • Webbing or V-ring leash attachment options
    • 5 point customizable fit with suspension system for comfort
    • Weight-forward saddlebag design stabilizes contents
    • Stash pockets and external gear loops for odds and ends
    • Item #RUF002D

    Awesome pack for every occasion!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My pup is a border collie mutt, about 50 lbs and a skinny waist; the small fits perfectly and has tons of room for storage. The handle is excellent for treacherous stream crossing and interviening in squirrel encounters. Can withstand the removal of porcupine quills and some serious bushwhacking. Haven't had any issues with the straps chaffing the pup and the pack stays put, especially if I take a moment to balance the load. I leave a leash attached to the pack and tuck the end of it into one of the zipper sides for easy access when needed. The pack is not water proof, so keep that in mind when packing it.

    Great pack for your furry friend

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Ordered the L/XL for our 3 yo GSD so she can accompany us on longer treks while carrying her own stash. This pack would work great for overnight hikes as well. I like the extra clip for the leash when trails are tight. I ordered the orange for our Fall hikes during hunting season and I love the color.
    Great pack for a great price!
