Love it!

I got this harness for my blue heeler and it fits him perfectly great quality

Best colllar I ever came across.

This is the best collar I ever came across. I like it so much. I had to order another one for my other dog.


I have a great pyrenees who is a true beast! Two years ago I had to get him a custom-designed collar because we couldn't find any collars his size. I am glad we found the DIreBeast, it is comfortable, gets the job done very well, and seems very sturdy. I just wish there were more colors, we could definitely use an orange one.

Over all pretty happy with the purchase


I bought this for my 1 1/2 yr old working DDR male German shepherd. I go for daily 3+ mile hikes above my home in rural Washington State where I usually climb 1,000 vertical feet. I bought this to mainly fill the molle pouches with lead shot to slow my male GSD down and keep him closer while we hike. This pack did exactly what i thought it would. Great quality, but i bought a large knowing that he was probably on the smaller side of large but felt he would grow into it. Its to big. If I had to do it over again, I would buy the medium as the large had to be synched tight. The Molle pouches are secured with snaps that did come unsnapped with the weight I had in them but would probably be fine with a lighter load. I will work on finding a way to better secure the pouches. Overall, its a good looking and very functional pack that cause no irritation to my dog and he never tried to throw the packs or bite at them.

Going strong for 2 years now!

It has held up so well and my pitbull gets compliments on it all the time. My biggest worry initially was that the chest buckle would rip out since my pittie likes to pull if she’s excited and we were using it to re-train. Not a single stitch has ripped. The buckles are completely in tact. There are small signs of wear from a few strings around the Velcro part, and the coloring on the buckle has started to come off but that’s it. The patches have never fell off and it’s comfortable for her to wear. The biggest downfall is that my pittie is short, so the straps have to be tucked in so she doesn’t trip. But honestly I don’t think she’ll ever have another harness again!

DireBeast Collar For a Dire Wolf Crusher

This review is for the DireBeast XXL from Goat Trail Tactical. Aptly named, as I do not know of another nylon 3 inch width with quick release style buckle available anywhere and I have looked everywhere including custom products. Obviously named after the Dire wolf, the largest now extinct wolf species which weighed up to 175 lbs. My own dog is called a Volkodav, translated as "wolf crusher" and in this case he is half Malakli and half Alabai, weighing in over 220 lbs and standing over 3 feet at the shoulder. He is a chunk of muscle and very unforgiving on equipment that is inferior, making him a real test to this collar. While Austri Alpine types might say they are rated to x lbs, my boy seems to be able to bust them along with many other hardware devices. In most cases the hardware is the weak link. This is true in collar buckles and in leash attachments. The buckle So far has surprised me in that it has held tight and not shown signs of stress. I think it might just be the ticket. One note though: When connecting, make sure that that you are square on and not off center, or it may bind and not connect. The strap itself is a bit thin, also surprising, as I normally prefer such beastly collars to have solid form and support for my beast to support his weight and prevent choking. In this case though it appears to be of decent quality and certainly strong enough to hold up to the task at hand. Stitching is straight and no loose threads were present. There was a nice padded neoprene liner to add cushion which help offset the thinness of the material. As a note: my dog is a working dog and must wear a heavy (almost 1/3 inch thick leather collar over 3.5 inches wide) . Due to this I always carry an emergency backup to change into, and the DireBeast is perfect for this, as it takes up minimal space while still being a full size collar with full size strength. The collar also has a velcro section which should accommodate a patch of approximately 2 inches wide and up to 7 inches long in my case for better identification. As mentioned the thinness leaves a bit to be desired foe true big dog stability, but otherwise it seems to be a very strong and well made collar with a lot going for it, including being the only model on the market to fit this important role. With sizes going up to 34 inches, and down to quite small sizes considering the 3 inch width, it is a good investment that can grow with your pup as well. To summarize, the only entry I know of similar in the marketplace, a great price and quality product. Apparently available in any color you want as long as it's black. If your best friend often gets mistaken for a bear or lion, then this is the collar for you!

SSGL ex harness

Waited over a month BUT WE LOVE IT! It’s worth the wait -
I’m ordering another today for my other dog !

Great Product, but Grey harness picture is deceiving.

Got my harness today, it is of great quality and build, but I was a bit sad to see that it was not Grey in color like the picture shows, instead it is pure black. I suggest the Admin updates the pictures to better reflect what they ship out.



A very good product. But very slow on delivery

good honest comany

I ordered a harness and patch for my dog and been waiting awhile..but customer service came up big with issuing a refund but stoll shipping my order out ..I still have to wait because it's been really busy for them with the holiday season but they did the right thing and made me happy !


Like these a lot for my hunting dogs. Would very much like to see one in hi-viz green as well. I always have 2 dogs down when hunting and a different color for each dog would be a big plus

Sturdy, strong, durable

I waited a little while for it to arrive. But it was well worth the wait. When it arrived I was worried the harness was too big for my little mountain feist. It's a lot of harness. I bought the smallest size they had. After tightening up all the straps I was relieved to see that the harness actually fits now. It is almost like a suit of armor for your dog. Its badass. I am very happy with my purchase and I believe my dog is too.

Best fanny pack ever

It is quickly adujstable, made out of good material, has alot of molle straps. Theres not much to say other than if your looking for a fanny pack for k9, edc, hacking , tactical ops, camping or hunting this is a go too.

I really like the harness and it fits my dog fine, easy to get on him easy to get off!

Not a real MOLLE pouch

I own many bags and pouches with MOLLE systems and PALS webbing. One of the main features of MOLLE is the ability to weave onto the PALS webbing for a secure fit. This pouch does not weave onto the SSGLex harness. The straps simply go under the two PALS straps on the harness with no way to weave them back into the pouch. In the field these pouches can easily come off the harness, as one reviewer experienced. I took my dog out for a test hike and the leash caught under the pouch and unsnapped both buttons. This is false advertising! I will be returning this pouch and buying a different one from a company that actually knows how MOLLE works.


Total control of my dog. She likes to chase dogs, cats etc,. Tha pincher collar caused damage. Every other college or harness has failed.

Good but could be better

This is a great utility vest but the packs that attach are not strong enough if the dog is running through brush or thick cover. We lost one of the packs on the first day since the buttons come lose too easily — if there was a more secure way to attach it to the vest I think that would be best. And the packs could be longer - there's not enough room in the pack for a water bottle for instance and that's the primary reason we purchased it.

Dogs love it!

The freeze dried chicken and beef are a big hit with the dogs. They can picky but both dogs will stop on their tracks for these tasty treats.

Good but...

It was a great leash, felt great in my hands, and was great to help train my new puppy but he chewed right through it so I wish I didn't spend so much on a leash I can't even use now


It's a great product well built. Sadly got one just a lil to big for my doggo will have to order another

American Flag Patch
Patrick Jones

Looks like a nice patch..I wouldn’t know because I didn’t receive mine in my recent order and still haven’t got an email back nice customer service


Ordered this for my new puppy to get him use to wearing a harness but wanted sturdy that would last while he grew as a puppy. Build quality is top notch, wanted the black tactical leash to go with but they were out of stock. Definitely will be ordering more for my huskies.

Great find for hunting dogs

I didn't purchase these harnesses to control by dogs. I virtually never put a leash on them. I have 2 well trained Pudelpointers and I have tried 6 or more different harnesses or coats. :My interest is purely visibility and toughness to combat the brush, brambles and thorns my dogs thrive in while hunting. These are the best by far. Visibility at long range and in the brush is excellent Fit is perfect. No chafing or hot spots and tough as nails. The orange capes are perfect and extremely tough. Shrug off briars and barbed wire fences. I have had a couple of serious injuries over the years for my dogs resulting in stitches etc. They would not have happened with this harness. Tough to protect chest, belly and sides. A nice touch that cape is easily replaced if it becomes soiled or damaged without need to replace the entire harness. My only wish is for a cape in safety yellow.


Well the best seems to be very good quality the sizing seems to be off. This medium vest supposed to fit a dog from 35 to 65 pounds and I can’t make it small enough to fit my 45 pound dog🤷🏼‍♂️

SSGLex Dog/K9 Harness

We take our rotties everywhere and being working dogs, they definitely like having a job to do. The SSGLex harness is perfect for them. We attach our molle water, accessory bags and IFAK kits to their harnesses when hiking and camping. The harness has an upper and chest d-ring which provides good options when training or better control is needed. The harness is well-made and seems very durable. Great piece of kit.
