The Ruffwear Approach Backpack is a high-quality, well-fitting and durable dog backpack: a long-lasting favorite for day trips and overnight hikes. 2022 updated version.

Under the Approach Pack is an ergonomic Y-shaped harness (the bags are not removable). Approach Pack is well suited for day trips or longer hikes. Thanks to versatile adjustments and several size options, it can be made to fit very many dogs comfortably.

  • Very high-quality, wear-resistant materials
  • Very light in weight
  • A well-padded handle on the back, if you can help the dog if necessary
  • Two attachment points for the strap: metal at the front and fabric at the back
  • Mesh pockets inside the bags
  • Equipment loops on top of the bags, which can be used, for example, to tie a sleeping pad on top of a backpack
  • Waterproof zippers
  • Reflectors
  • The fasteners under the bags prevent the bags from swinging even if the dog is running.
  • If you want a version of the backpack with bags that can be removed from the harness and the volume of the bags can be adjusted, check out For Ruffwear Palisades Pack .

  • the materials retain their color even better
  • renewed tightening system, which reduces the swaying of the bags when the dog moves
  • the pockets have a more streamlined design and the volumes have been optimized
  • new colors: Blue Dusk and Campfire Orange

Ruffwear Approach Pack dog backpack size selection

First, measure your dog's chest (from the widest point behind the front legs). After that, compare the other measurements of that size given in the table with your dog.

  • The transverse chest strap can be tightened even smaller, the maximum length is mentioned in the table (dog's chest circumference).
  • You should especially check that the length of the longitudinal chest strap is sufficient, so that the transverse chest strap does not rub the back of the armpits.
  • From the length of the back, you can see how far the back belly strap extends
