The Approach Pack is an everyday dog 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.

Since 1994, Ruffwear has always done things a little differently. We are driven by our shared passion for the canine-human connection. We are proudly self-funded, and by managing our business with thoughtfulness and intention, and reinvesting our profits, we give ourselves the freedom to pursue purpose rather than profit, to innovate, and to seek continuous improvement in everything we do.
We are an adventurous and curious group. We’re self-reliant, but we’re also collaborative. We push the boundaries, but we don’t take unnecessary risks. We believe in honesty, transparency and integrity, and we honor each other’s hard work by offering gratitude and respectful feedback. We treat each other like family with support and trust.
And we have fun. We go skiing together – and rafting, and camping, and hiking. We gather around the breakfast table, toasting coffee and OJ, and meet for beers after work. We take our dogs to the dog park, and when we need a laugh, we let them run off leash in the office. We’re passionate, and we love what we do. Sometimes we cry tears of joy or frustration together – we might be a little sensitive, but hey, we’re dog people.
Since 1994, Ruffwear has been dedicated to building gear for outdoor athletes and their human companions. We believe that our products should perform and that performance should be measured by the ability to enhance our outdoor adventures with our dogs. These guiding principles, along with a desire to push the boundaries and explore, are what fuel our soul and drive us to create the best dog gear possible. Thanks for sharing the adventure with us.
Designed from a dog’s perspective
At Ruffwear, we believe our dog’s gear should perform just as well as our own. We use technical fabrics with an athletic fit to guide us to the edge of exploration.
Connections built to last
Every Ruffwear leash is custom-designed, from the webbing patterns inspired by our favorite wild places to secure, ergonomically-crafted hardware.
Go the distance, get a grip
We partner with Vibram® to engineer outsoles for year-round trail conditions. Outdoor adventurers can forge new paths and take the trail less traveled.
Trail tested promise
All of our products are rigorously field tested and we proudly guarantee against defects in materials and craftsmanship.
