We are very happy with the high quality of the product as well as the amazing customer service we were given. There was a small error in our original order and Goat Trail Tactical immediately fixed the issue without making us jump through endless hoops.
Would refer this company for the quality, but we are definitely staying because of the great service.
I’m worried the metal hardware will get too hot in our Florida sun
Absolutely amazing. Been using it for around 6 months. Carry handle is amazing if you go adventuring in rocky areas. I have a Shepherd Mix
Very nice material, love the style. Fits great on my Dutch Shepherd! He looks so official, which is great for the start of his service dog training next week! Love it, exactly the high quality I was looking for!
Exactly what I was looking for in a harness for my pup. After tightening it down, it fits her perfectly. The detachable bags don’t exactly fit a full size (16.9oz) bottle of water. However, they will fit the 12oz size just fine. All in all my dog seems to enjoy it, and I couldn’t ask for a better product!
I like the way it looks it’s built tough fits my dog very well. thank you guys
-Could not wait to get this kit for our newly adopted shelter dog, a 2yo Pitt. She is being trained as a service dog and has very strong tendencies to pull on walks. Having the option to attach some storage or a med emergency kit was a big bonus as well.
-Packaging was A++ and shipping very fast. First impression however is that the color was wrong. I selected the gray option but received black instead. I then went back to my purchase and confirmed that the image displayed was indeed gray. But, then I reread the description which says black. Why do you have a gray color showing for a black vest? We live in the desert and black gets extremely hot when out on daytime excursions so this was very disappointing. I'd have sent it back but after testing we have come to love the function and will try find ways to make due in the heat. Pics are included to show what it was I thought I was getting VS what was received.
-As she is a puller, and extremely well muscled, having a vest that can hold up under load was critical. This gear does not disappoint. The materials and stitching are easily comparable to my SOG hiking packs. There are no loose threads, the stitching is all evenly reinforced, and the primary harness clips are solid metal, with the girth straps connected by robust plastic units akin to what I have seen on my own safety harness.
-The grab handle is perfectly sized, not too big, and is easily found blindly, resting a hand on my pups neck. This is important for me as she may need to assist me when having a 'medical episode'. I have no doubt that it will hold up.
-The leash ring in back is chunky and so far the coating is extremely durable. The no-pull ring in front is not like others I've tried and I am not using it with this vest. In other units I've tested the ring runs through a strap that cinches tight around the chest and shoulders if the dog pulls. This one is hard mounted to the chest pad itself. If the dog pulls the vest twists before turning her around. Maybe I just need to spend more time adjusting the fit. Either way, the primary ring on the shoulders is very stout and more than adequate for the job.
-The molle panels are also made with the same careful attention to detail. And they are appropriately sized, using my mil surplus gear for testing. There isn't a lot of real-estate on my pups flanks but there is more than enough room for a pouch on each side for a days worth of rations and water along with a collapsible bowl. We left enough room in the rigging to also allow a cooking towel to rest between the back pad and dogs rib cage. Its not perfect but it does provide a barrier between her coat and the hot black fabric.
-Putting this on the dog is super simple. Initially we separated both panels, resting the back pad in place and then clipping in the chest pad. At first she wasn't too keen on this, startling a little when the clips connected, making that distinct 'click' noise. However we believe she may have been abused and this is not the only sound that startles her. After just a week she began going to the vest, hanging in our foyer, and 'booping it' when she wants to go on a walk or car ride. She also now sits and let's us put the vest on over her head, like a shirt, leaving just the girth buckles to deal with. Its still not her favorite thing but she tolerates it and quickly forgets it is there once outside.
-I also purchased the SSGLex Seat Belt and Dog Leash combo. Highly recommended if you are training a stubborn puppy who likes to pull or if you just prefer a short leash. Its a sheathed elastic and does most of the work for you without losing a very well defined movement distance both in the car and on walks.
-Overall this is an excellent product which I believe will hold up for many years, based on the materials and quality. I would have given this 5 stars but for the very misleading image on the product page. I will be back for more gear in the future and will not hesitate to spend the cash for this kind of quality from an American owned business.
I have all 3 sizes of this harness - lots of room to adjust - I feel it runs a bit on the ‘large’ size ….love the control handle - used it on our first hike. Very sturdy.
