Hi & Light Harness

The harness is well constructed and does not seem to cause any discomfort for the dogs. I purchased it to help with pulling by the dogs when we walk. I works better than most harnesses for pulling, but by no means stops it altogether. I would recommend this harness for small as well and medium dogs.

Sturdy harness

This harness is well made, doesn't dig into my dog's rib cage, and should last a long time. Thanks.

Great Lightweight design; different fit from others

Been looking for this harness for a while! Wanted something minimal, and also have had a hard time finding the right fit for my somewhat deep-chested but lean dog. According to the size chart, my dog is right between sizes (he measures exactly 27"), and this has been true for other Ruffwear products I've wanted or tried - like the float coat and even the Front Range harness (I didn't keep either because none of them fit correctly). But this Hi & Light Harness in medium fits him very well! It seems to run a bit smaller than the Front Range, or at least has a smaller fabric area to strap ratio (shorter body straps?) ... since a medium Front Range would be cinched all the way down on my dog (and still too big in the neck and just overall too much loose padding or straps with the potential to snag), but the medium Hi & Light has the body straps adjusted near the middle, and the fabric/padding sits nice and flat against his body. I also like it better than the fit of the small Front Range because it isn't so close to his front legs so I'm not as worried about it riding up/rubbing. Also happy this lighter weight one worked for my dog, since he loves water and mud and generally stays pretty warm on our adventures anyway. (Pictures compare the fit of the Medium Hi & Light (gray) to a small Front Range (green)).

Slips off easily

I’m tired of chasing after our dog after she slips out of this harness.

Interaction with the support department is always exceptional. The Hi & Light harness is just what I needed for my dog. It is heavy duty and holds up to all of our adventures in the great outdoors. The bright color is also a plus for locating him when off leash during the dimming hours of the day.
