Rated 5 out of 5 by Allie My dog and I are both thrilled with this harness
My dog is 50 pounds, deep chested; the large fits her well. It adjusts very big, it also fits my boyfriend's 100ish pound GSD. I am so happy with this harness, the material is so soft and I can finally say I've found something that doesn't chafe her poor tummy and under arms. My dog has very short hair and has never been able to wear a harness, even the ones that claim to be soft still irritated her skin. The hemp outer part is very soft and it is lined with what feels like fleece on the part that touches the skin. It is thick and feels very sturdy, I would imagine this would stand up to a puller - or like I plan to do, using it for the occasional assist up or down a rocky outcropping while we're hiking in the mountains.
The only thing I was slightly disappointed about was the color. The picture looks very bright orange, which is what I wanted for high visibility in the forest, but the actual color is closer to a burnt orange than a hunter's orange. I will probably just add some reflective patches to it though, I am too much in love with everything else about it to consider getting a different one.
If you are concerned about control, you could also attach a leash to the front of it, there is a metal ring connecting the front pieces. That's not necessarily what it's there for, but if you need a front clip on occasion then that will do. I will also add that this style of harness (the H design) is probably the best for keeping Houdini dogs from escaping it. Way better than the step in ones that generally just slip off over their heads when they pull backwards. So if you have a round little dog such as a pug or English bulldog, this one might be the way to go.
All in all I have to say that this is hands down the best harness I have tried (and I've tried A LOT), the first one that my dog is actually comfortable in, will not impede her range of motion by putting pressure on her shoulder blades or the front of her legs, doesn't look like it will fall apart easily, and doesn't feel like it's made out of sandpaper and gravel. If you are on the fence about buying a harness, seriously, try this one. I don't see how anyone could not like this.

I don't usually use a harness on our dogs, but wanted one for our old dog to assist her in going up a ramp and stairs. This one is very padded for old dogs and gives the extra support of a chest strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vinny Better than I thought
I was hesitent to purchase this particular (ORANGE) as it appeared to flashy in accompaning photo.One reviewer stated it was not as day glow like as it appeared in photo so I took a chance.This orange colored halter is quite different than photo (perhaps lighting) I find it very attractive and have received several positive comments on it.
The halter itself is excellent. Easy to adjust,very comfortable for dog,constructed extremely well.I like it far better than other brands I have purchased in the past for similar prices.I believe it will last far longer than other brands.I highly recomend it to others.

I have a small but lanky cockapoo who LOVES to greet any walking object with kisses and sniffs. Consequently, she tugs and tugs until her collar causes her to cough and gag. After her last coughing spell, I decided to switch to a harness.
Given our active lifestyle, I wanted something low profile and easily adjustable depending on how thick her curly fur coat was (winter vs summer). This product works great. Been to the beach and out for hikes, and at large gatherings with tons of people, and she's not had another cough. Her movement isn't limited, and it's like it's not even there! It's soft, and the colour (orange) is vibrant without being gaudy.
Definitely go by the measurements. Her neck is 11", and chest 17", and the small size fits her with the neck loosened midway but the chest at nearly the tightest setting. It took an extra few seconds figuring out which loop she steps into, but subsequent times fitting it is easy. The harness hasn't loosened with moderate tugging, but I haven't submerged it under water yet to test it out (on a swim day). Only complaint is how the top of the harness seems to slide side-to-side depending on which side L/R she's walking on. Otherwise, perfect for my pup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mhlightle Very nice quality.
Very nice harness, love the soft hemp, and the fleece lining is a bonus for dogs who have thin coats and no fur on their chests. No rubbing, chafing. I ordered a medium for a tiny, 45 lb. greyhound. Still adjusting to find the best fit. While this size works, I wish the T-strap on the back were a little longer, thus positioning the chest strap farther back from the front legs. Also wish there were a second D-ring on the front, but not a big deal that it isn't included. Would not buy any other type of harness given all the pluses this one offers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky Love the softness and durability of the product
I knew the product would be good, but the product I received I was pleased more than I thought I would be. I would definitely happily tell others about this product.
