- Adjustable at the neck and girth
- Pulling pressure is on dog's chest, not neck and shoulder and eliminates downward pressure on dog's hindquarters. Rotates freely around dog's girth, thereby helping to reduce 'crabbing.
- Four points of attachment - four welded nickel-plated steel d-rings: main d-ring on the girth, front d-ring to dissuade pulling/control/versatility, side d-rings on the girth for biking options.
- 3M Reflective Bands for nighttime visibility
- Polartec Fleece Padding - comfortable, lightweight, and durable. The harness is padded everywhere that touches your dog, even under the buckles and on the adjustment straps

This harness extends only partway down the back to accommodate the steeper pull angle associated with biking and scootering.
POLAR FLEECE - Our Polartec Polar Fleece is the premium fleece, providing maximum padding for your dog's comfort and safety. Polar Fleece is extremely lightweight and durable and is machine washable. Contrary to appearance and perception, Polar Fleece does not readily absorb moisture; due to its hydrophobic nature, it only retains less than 1% of its weight in water. Because it is very breathable and covers a very small surface area of your dog, it is temperature neutral. It is mostly made from recycled materials, including plastic bottles, and despite its fuzzy appearance, is not flammable, but instead melts when exposed to flame. Although Polar Fleece is more expensive than other padding materials, we believe that it is ideally suited for high-quality dog harnesses.
Great for use with multiple dogs, and for people who are uncomfortable with precise measuring...and if you do not want to or cannot wait for one of our renowned CUSTOM MADE harnesses!
