Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack to take the dog with us. Awesome little pack. The dog is a little uncomfortable wearing the pack so do start them wearing it for a short amount of time before taking them on an adventure. Really well designed with appropriate adjustments to fit your dog. Handle on top is perfect to help the dog over boulders. We absolutely love our adventures with the approach pack

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! We went on our first backpacking trip with our 1 1/2 year old border collie and she loved it! This pack was perfect for East Coast hiking because of the handle- we lifted her over large boulders and ladders without a problem. We ordered a size small and she's 30 lb.s

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pack for backpacking with my dog! I have this same pack for my dog, and loved it so much, I purchased one for my best friend's new dog as a birthday gift. Can't wait to put it to use this summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dog pack! I bought this Ruffwear pack for my 80 lbs Belgium Malinois (Heidi). The sizing guide was accurate and the medium was a perfect fit based on her chest measurement. The padded adjustable straps make it easy to get a custom fit for your dog. This is an important consideration, as your dog will not likely enjoy wearing a poorly designed ill fitting pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pack Bought this a month ago for my 4yo pit bull. 75lb bought a size large. Fits great and he started wearing it immediately with no problems. No rubs, no sore spots. Helps to get rid of some of the extra energy he has!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for your best friend I bought this pack after careful research to find a pack that would be both efficient and comfortable for my dog. We tested the pack with a climb to 1500 feet. The pack rode very well when balanced properly. There appeared to be no discomfort for dog and no signs of chaffing were observed. I would also add that the handle on top is very handy for lifting dog over those rock faces that were difficult for him to handle. This was the first time he had ever wore a pack and he carried it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product! I adore the Approach Pack. The XS fits my >30lbs Mini Aussie great and she doesn't mind carrying it at all. It's so nice for her to be able to carry her own stuff when we go on hikes! I can't wait to take it on Backpacking Adventures!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves her backpack! I've been wanting to get my dog into backpacking, so after some research, I bought this Ruffwear Approach pack. SHE LOVES IT! We're still working on weighting it, because she's building her strength for carrying weight, but she literally just gets instantly "at work" when I put it on. It's so well made and looks fantastic. Buy this backpack!

What size pack for a 60 lb Labrador 1 year old whom we expect to be 80 lb at full size?

Asked by: Doodle
Hey Dair, Ruffwear sizes their items not by the weight of your dog, but by the measurements of the back length and neck or girth, depending on the item. You can check out Ruffwear's size guide here: http://www.ruffwear.com/Apparel. You can then use that guide to find the best size for your dog for this item.

BOOT MEASUREMENT GUIDE

• Below is a super easy way to find the correct boot size for your pup.

1. Make sure your pup is standing on a firm surface.

2. Instead of fighting with measuring tape, grab a pencil and place a piece of paper under one of your dog's front paws.

3. Then, lift your dog's opposite paw so that its weight is placed firmly onto the front paw being measured.

4. Take your pencil and mark both sides of the weighted paw at its widest point on the piece of paper.

5. Kiss Fido on the head for being so great, and let him (or her) go play. From there, grab your measuring tape and measure the distance between the two points. Check which boot size would fit above, and you're all set. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

RUFFWEAR MEASUREMENT GUIDE

• The fit info listed below is meant to help find the correct fit, especially if your pup has a unique size or shape.

Length - Refers to the length of the coat from the center back neck to the center of your pup's lower back.

Neck - The neck refers to the neck opening circumference.

Dog's Girth - To measure girth, measure around the widest part of Fido's rib cage.
