LLC Harness arrived, but it's too small ;n;

I placed the order on Wednesday, May 28.
It shipped on Monday, June 2.
Arrived today, Wednesday, June 10.

I was so excited the whole time and it's too small

I guess I'll have to order the extension straps and wait 6-10 business days. #Firstworldproblems.

I would think that it would be made large enough to fit "large" GSDs.

I don't think my dog is that big, my friend has a much larger 110lbs German, German Shepherd.

Mine is 85lbs with a 36" chest.

Well, I told you I figured it might be too small..........

I've finally chosen a harness. Does anyone have pictures?

Do you not even have any overlap? ..........I had custom buckles and I imagine they would make it with custom (longer straps). ........ I guess they are shooting for the norm and between Malinois and GSD a 36 inch chest is pretty big.

Yea, I though I would have a bit of wiggle room. No overlap whatsoever :/
I order the harness with cobra buckles. One interesting thing is that mine came with a v-ring in the front as well, so it's like the Fight and Flight harness. I though that was interesting, because none of their pictures show that. The chest plate also has velcro for patches; another nice surprise.

Did yours have 2 v-rings? I wonder if it's something they added recently.

Heads up though, the extensions are on back order. I'm still waiting on mine to ship.

Must not be tempted to buy more things.

Mine has one v ring. I would like a second. Maybe they shortened the strap when they changed it . I definitely have 7 inches extra on a 32 inch chest.

I've had my harness for probably 3-4 months now, I can't remember if they offered the black harness at the time. That black looks awesome, but I bet it gets steamy quick in the sun.

I wish they gave measurements on the harnesses.

Ultimately, that is why I chose the coyote brown. I would take pics, but it would be kind of pointless if the straps are just dangling down.

A terrible shot with a lame iphone camera, but you get the idea at least. I wish I could remember how old he was here, maybe 4 months? He's a big boy though and outgrew it real quick. I like the little water bottle pouch, it's empty here but will hold a good sized bottle for longish outings.
