good quality product

i wanted a harness that was light weight for my older dog but still good quality that will stand up to hikes and swimming and lots of use. this harness is perfect for that. its not as rugged as other harnesses, but it serves my purpose exactly. its really easy to put on/take off and does not bind or rub anywhere on my boy. he is a 40lb BC/Aussie mix and is a very active boy even at 11yrs old. he has spent most of his years off leash, but due to knee problems i have to limit some of his activity and he will be spending more time on leash. this harness was integral to that transition. he will still get off leash time, but in a more controlled way. thanks ruffwear for making such awesome products and really caring about dog and their humans!

Enjoying our walks now!

I think the harness is well made and the materials substantial. I had a little trouble at first with adjusting it on my 7 month old puppy as she was hesitant about moving the straps while she was wearing it. She loves it now and I enjoy walks with her in a harness rather than a collar. We live in a hot climate so the fit is more comfortable on her. I would recommend it to anyone who struggles with a dog that pulls too much on walks.

Twisted mess

Dog seems to like harness but straps at front remain hopelessly twisted especially annoying since strap cover very narrow. Can’t seem to correct.

Good Product but my Dog is Hard to Fit

I'll give this product 4 stars because it is a quality construction and obviously well-made. It isn't the best for my particular dog, however. I tried an XS: just BARELY too small. I tried a S: waaay too large, even when adjusted. I can't get a good fit, and he pulls his leg through when he's alone. Because of this, he can't wear it 24/7. I do use it for walks, but it's not suitable for 24/7 everyday wear. I can't fault Ruffwear that my dog is right at the size break. He does a little better in a size S Front Range, though it is too hot for daily wear in Texas summers, and he can also pull his leg through it. Hence, I'm still searching for a suitable harness for 24/7 daily wear.

Multiple adjustments make fit a breeze. Easy on, easy off. Well constructed. Rufus loves his twilight Hi & Light. Add the collar and leash for a perfect set. Highly recommend anything Ruffwear for urban or mountain hiking with your furry friend!
