This is my second purchase of this vest, not because it wore out, but because our little princess grew! I love this vest mostly for it's security while she is in her car seat. She seems very comfortable in it too. I highly recommend it!

Vest was well made but my 4 lb Maltese was swimming in it. Had to send it back and a customer service rep helped me find a smaller one.

Marvelous 4 Maltese
Posted By: MARY
Location: Denver, CO United States
This is our 3rd VestHarness for our 7 yr old 12 lb Maltese. She can be secured in her car seat in the back seat of the car to keep her safe while traveling. We also use it to walk her since we don't want any tugging or pressure on her neck. (Maltese are prone to trachea prolapse so it is best not to use a collar for walking) These are the best!!!!!!

Vest Harness
Posted By: Liliane Sklenarik
Location: Holliston, MA United States
I bought the vest harness to use with the car seat and it works well. I find that it is fairly easy to put on my puppy along with being fairly adjustable although I do wish there was an adjustment for the neck area but all in all, it works. I find this a good tool to use when she is out for a walk in an "excitable" place where she pulls a lot. Using the vest, she doesn't "choke" herself. I have a 15 lb. cock-a-poo puppy that should reach about 22 lbs as an adult. I bought the small size and believe it will fit her to adulthood.

While good design, this was too large (unsafe) for 4 lb. Yorkie. Had to return. Am using regular velcro vest with leash hook.

Cute Harness

This car harness fits perfect! I bought the XXS for my 8 pound Yorkie, Lexie, she knows when I get it out it's time to go for a ride & she's totally ready to go because she just loves it!

way too big for my puppy!
Posted By: Chelly
Location: Chicago, IL United States
We ordered the XXS hoping it would fit our Shorkie puppy. It was huge! Even though her measurments were correct for the size chart, she walked right out of the harness within the first 10-15 seconds. I can see how this would be a great product for a bigger dog, but for a tiny one-- not so much.

Total comfort and protection
Posted By: Gloria

This is the second time we bought this harness for our precious pomeranians, Olivia and Tucker. They outgrew the previous ones! Olivia weighs 4 pounds and Tucker weighs 5, so we got them the XS size. Perfect fit and allows for movement and no strain on their necks while in their car seats. It's nice to know they are safe and comfortable while in the car.

I bought this harness for my little Lola who weighs 5 lbs. She gets really nervous in the car and tries to walk over the console to sit on my lap. This harness keeps her safe in her car seat. As much as I want to hold her, safety is first. This harness is perfect. Thank you we LOVE GW Little!

Too cute and comfy, too
Posted By: Tilly
Location: Northern Virginia, VA United States
This vest fits very well and it is very soft and flexible. I got the mesh bright pink color and it really add some color to my puppy's white with tan marking fur. I especially like that it is so easy to put on and take off. Simply slip the head through the vest, tug the vest under the body, and secure on both side. Voila! It's on. When my puppy is about full grown, I plan on getting the personalized light pink vest. Until then, this mesh vest works perfectly.

Great for riding or walking. Our 25 lb. dogs like them. A much better, more secure fit than a harness we purchased in a pet store.

Car Vest Harness
Posted By: Pam
Location: Centreville, VA United States
Quality product, excellent service. We have an 18-lb schnoodle and ordered the small size padded and mesh vest harness. Harness is easily adjustable. It's perfect for the car (with safety strap that connects to seat belt) and for walking. This particular harness does not chafe under arm pits as some do. Also love the fact that loop for leash attachment is on the back of the dog and not near the neck. So much safer when either braking the car or pulling on leash while walking...doesn't choke the dog at all. Really great product!!

Folly's fighting Lymphoma
Posted By: Boyd Gentry
Location: Mt. Pleasant, SC United States
My 10 yr. old girl Folly was recently diagnosed (9/23/11) with malignant lymphoma. She is covered in red lesions and the collar we were using was irritating her skin further. I have been researching harnesses a lot and couldn't find a large or XL mesh or nylon harness, especially with the seatbelt capability, that would fit or that I really liked until now. We really love this harness and it is perfect. It fits her perfectly in all areas and is not irritating at all to the lesions under her armpits. The lined one that I got was a much better material than the (only) other one I saw in this size and style by another brand name. The mesh one was also considerably nicer material and would be great for warm weather places. Bottom line is that this is a very well made product that is comfortable and reasonably priced. I am so glad that I waited and purchased this one instead of any of the other few that I saw. With everything that we are researching, learning and experiencing with this difficult news, I am thrilled to be able to finally put this to rest and know that I made the best decision for Folly's comfort and safety when it comes to harnesses.

I have spent a fortune on harnesses, and finally found one that works great and that my little gal likes. So many of them she has been able to wiggle her way out of and this one she can not and it is not restrictive for her at all. I just ordered two more in the other colors.

vented harness

The harness fits very well. The breathing of the vents is excellent since my dog is black. Attaches to the Lookout car seat with ease. Very much appreciated the videos for the car seat and harness! Answered my questions before my purchase. My dog loves the car seat and has no problems with the harness. Highly recommend both!!

Perfect for hot weather!
Posted By: Beth Gaskins
Location: Poinciana, FL United States
We live in Florida and my 2 kitties have a car seat. This is perfect for us all year long. The fabric is very durable yet soft and will not cause them to over heat. I also found them two be wiggle proof which is very important for cats because they can get out of almost anything, so feel confident the your furry baby will be very secure and protected!

I liked the product but again I had to make it smaller to fit my 3 1/2 lb. dog. I removed the strapes made them shorter and now it fits fine. This would have been a 5 if I didn't have to make adjustments to make it fit.

Comfortable for my baby
Posted By: Laurel Sylvanus
Location: Los Angeles, CA United States
This is a really good harness for my climate and my 'baby.' She is 7 mo. 6 lb Shorkie with a solid middle section, (not tapered or "skinny"). The XS fits well but she will grow out soon if she grows more. She doesn't wriggle or express discomfort when wearing at all, but doesn't like that it needs be pulled over her head to put on and off. She either sits up or curls up comfortably in her car seat with it on and I like that she is securely strapped in. Good product.

Vented car vest harness

I love this. I had a difficult time finding a harness that was comfortable for my chihuahua. It is lightweight, but feels sturdy enough to actually work. She also can't wiggle out of it like her old one, so I can take her more places.

i have a toy fox terrier, 4 mos. old. the harness was a small and a bit too big. so i didnt feel it was safe to use, so i had it sewn a little tighter by my seamstress. and it works great now, so when he grows some more i can take the stitches out and will be like new. i feel it keeps him really safe driving in the care.

This is the best harness ever! I ordered a new one because after 4 years the clip broke. My Westie uses it all the time for car rides and walks. The mesh is a lot cooler for the hot Vegas weather! Thank you GW Little for great easy ordering and delivery!

Vented Car Vest Harness
Posted By: Karen
Location: San Antonio, TX United States
I ordered this for my male that I will take ownership of next week. My female has one and we appreciate that it is vented for the heat in Texas and that the D-ring on the back hits her lower in the back. I believe this to be the safest feature in case of an accident.

Just received my Vented Car Vest Harness. It was package in white with paw print tissue paper, which was so cute. The vest was more than I expected. The fit was perfect. I never had a harness that fits so well. The construction of the vest is well made too. Couldn't be happier.

My favorite harness
Posted By: Caryn
Location: Los Angeles, CA United States
Years ago, I had a similar harness for my toy poodle, but it's worn and needs cleaning. Also, wanted something for warmer weather. This is perfect - soft enough so it doesn't dig in if we have to stop short. She wears it in her lookout seat using the ring. But this harness has the added convenience of being able to put a seat belt through in the event you can't use the car seat/leash option. I liked it so much I ordered the padded version monogrammed for cooler weather (although the fit on that one isn't quite as good) tip: if your dog is right on the cusp of a size, go to the larger size.

Car Harness is in the Pink!
Posted By: Cherie Bargery
Location: Darwin, NT, AL Australia
We had a car harness that came with the 'lookout type' car seat we bought and it was good at keeping her in the seat, but somehow she always seemed to wriggled out of it. With the new harness we bought her from G.W. Little, there's no way she can slip out and we feel much safer with her in the car! And it's vented which is perfect for our tropical lifestyle and pin, perfect for our little girl!

Car Seat Harness
Posted By: Kathleen Klein

I ordered the xxs for my 3.8 pound yorkie. I ordered the summer harness and the winter harness. Both are well made but both are still too big for my yorkie. I don't think the size chart is accurate but would much rather have my dog safe in a car seat with something securing her vs nothing.

Vented Car Seat Harness
Posted By: Lindsay Lauck
Location: farmington, UT United States
I was a little worried about the vented car seat harness at first because you have to slip it over your dogs head, and my dog will sometimes fight me. But, the harness opening is large enough that it is not a problem. It fits low across his chest and has a D-ring towards the back to make sure that it will not pull on his neck if I stop suddenly. I actually prefer it to some of his other harnesses and he doesn't seem to mind it when it is on at all.

Vented Harness is great
Posted By: Sue
Location: Greenville, MI United States
We take our little Chihuahua wherever we go and because we are concerned about safety, this harness is perfect keeping her safe in her car seat. She hops in and gets hooked up. She does not mind this vest at all. We have tried another one and the buckle was right under her leg, so it annoyed her. It is a great product. GWLittle shipped as promised and has been wonderful to order from.

I bought two Air Mesh Harnesses for my dogs after a co-worker of mine, who is an Emergency Medical Tech, recommended harnessing pets in the car for safety. They work great! Very easy to put on your dog. Both of my dogs were able to sit or lie down easily with the harness on. So glad I got them!!
