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

  • Padded handle and non-slip girth straps offer good load dispersion for controlled and comfortable lifting

  • Trail-ready details: stash pockets and external gear loops

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

  • Harness suspension system provides stability, comfort and fit

  • Made in Vietnam
