  • Padded handle and girth straps offer even load dispersion for controlled and comfortable lifting
  • Radial cut, weight-forward saddlebags and flopper stoppers stabilize pack and contents

What's New: A staple in our pack lineup, the Approach Pack's updates were inspired by customer feedback. 

More breathability and flexibility with a perforated, molded foam chassis; overall weight savings and improved colorfastness with new materials; updated "flopper stopper" system for easier use when stabilizing saddlebags against the harness chassis; and more streamlined, refined saddlebag volumes.
