Ruffwear Approach Pack


Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: Won it!

Of course, as I often am w/ K9 products, I was skeptical at first. My concerns were soon gone. This pack fits well on my medium sized terrier mix. She seemed comfortable wearing this pack even after her first 5-miler in it. It holds a lot of stuff, but unless you are asking your pooch to carry some of YOUR things, the bags may be a bit larger than needed.

Sizes listed by the manufacturer are a bit on the large size. Based on weight and girth on the size chart, I chose the small pack for my 13" beagle. I should have chosen a smaller size for her. Luckily, I have another dog that is a bit larger - now she wears this pack.

The harness is easy to figure out and adjust although one buckle on the chest strap ends up under the bag on one side, making it a bit difficult to close if the pack is loaded.

Pack quality is first rate with taped seams and heavy duty construction. The harness is strong, padded, and seems to be comfortable. When adjusted properly, it doesn't rub or chafe.
