This harness is excellent. It has a padded chest plate, a handle, and easy to close clasps. I was not surprised when Petsmart ran out of this harness years ago, but I never thought it would take so long to find it again. Certain colors are already out of stock, so I have a couple backups in the closet. We use this harness for daily use, for her therapy visits, and for outdoorsy adventures. Our first Kong harness lasted for over three years, and just recently showed signs of needing replacement. A must buy for active dogs, or dogs that tend to escape collars.
