Badger's fave pack to carry in his water and food for a big day in the mountains.

This is the pack that our dog Badger carries with him when we go tramping. It has more than enough room for all he needs for the day plus can carry some of your gear as well. 

It's 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 enhances fit, pack stability and overall performance. Radial cut saddlebags create a passive compression system that is form fitting and better load carrying. Combined with the lightweight materials and a streamlined design, the Approach Pack is comfortable and allows dogs to carry 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.

Weight (min): 360 grams

  • Customizable fit with five points of adjustment allow for full range of motion

  • Two leash attachment points: single-piece, anodized aluminum V-ring and webbing loop

  • Radial cut, weight-forward saddlebag design creates passive compression that stabilizes pack contents

Neat pack

Bought this pack for a tramping trip. Easily fitted it’s companion mat, dog food and lead. Dog quickly got used to the pack. Also used on a recent helicopter flight - handle was particularly helpful to restrain dog. Happy purchaser.

Great News

We are really happy with our Ruffwear approach pack. Does everything it says on the box and has stood up to some pretty intense bush bashing. Further Faster were on point as well getting it to us within three days of ordering and was packaged in dolphin happy materials. !!!!
