    Hurtta make great quality stuff it really does last for ages and is, IMO worth the money.

    I've had these...

    both were great until Ringo matured and bulked out - the chest section isn't adjustable and so it couldn't be made any bigger to accommodate this! I don't think that Lucky would have this problem though as she's more of a standard shape and Rosie's fitted fine as she's not got a disproportionately broad chest.

    I like the look of these ones more (because of the shape) [​IMG]

    ...and Dogless has posted pictures of some that look great, but I haven't tried one on my dogs - I'd like to though.

    I have one of these for each of their dogs as their summer harnesses, as I feel the fleece ones are too warm through the summer, plus I wanted a harness to fit over their hurtta coats...

    Here's Inca in hers :)

    (*Bold patch on shoulder area is from her allergy scratching etc - the fur is growing back*)

    And Jessie in heres :)

    I think they're great and the handle is fantastic for extra, close control :)

    I have the Y shaped ones for the boys, they seem very comfortable in them. I chose them as the padding is neoprene and they get wet a lot.

    I am a bit confused on the sizing :eek: just measured Lucky's chest/girth and it's 48cm. The closest size to that is 45 or 50cm, do they adjust at all?

    Sorry for the seemingly dumb question :eek:

    I can't say I'm a fan, I don't like the writing on them. :eek:

    So from looking at the sizing guide I think 55cm size would be about right as it states they can be adjusted between 10-20cm smaller.

    I had the ezydog quick fit before but the buckle was right in her armpit, the buckle on these do look a lot smaller though.

    I get so confused choosing harnesses, looking at the haqihana ones too.

    Not sure which style you're getting, the y - shaped one adjusts girth only.

    They are the ones in your bottom photo; just much larger and in the "Lifeguard" range.

    I like both styles to be honest, I did prefer the one in the first photo that Missnaomi posted but I'm wondering if the buckle would rub her baldy armpits. I had the quick fit ezy dog (which was a similar style but had a much chunkier buckle) which rubbed her.

    Thanks for the help everyone, I know I'm a pain :eek: :p

    It shouldn't rub in theory. Mine haven't suffered from any rubbing. I can't help you on size I am afraid, as I didn't get mine measured, we went into a shop and tried some on.

    I don't think it'll rub..I haven't heard anyone else say they rub either :)

    The boys have baldy armpits and the buckles on theirs are nowhere near their armpits which is good - you can see where the buckle is sited on Rudi's.

    Thanks for the advice :)

    I've just bought so many harnesses in the past that rubbed her (rogz, ezy dog etc) I think I'm paranoid now :D

    I do love Lupine (which don't rub) but fancy something a bit different now.

    You tried Mekutis? -- they can be adjusted to sit clear of the armpits:

    Thanks

    They are good in terms of being able to adjust all of the straps so you can get a really good fit.
