I was expecting great things from this harness when I bought it but when it finally arrived I was blown away by the versatility and quality.
It is true that it took some figuring out on how to adjust the straps and how it sits on my dog but once I did I realized what a valuable resource I now have. The saddlebags are clipped on and while they stay in place they are also easy to remove. The chest, belly and holding straps all adjust and are padded to prevent friction. The material itself is thick and seems unlikely to rip or snag while we hike.
All around a item I would recommend.
