Just ordered vest from Leerburg. I decided on a lightweight vest that is plain, no pockets etc.
Thanks for all your input.

|GSD07||Kathy, those were good times! He still has his nose in the ground and 'find it' is his favorite game, but I know he misses tracking. I tried to maintained his skills over the years, at least once a week, but everything stopped since our move...|

I like the Julius K9 harnesses. I bought one for each dog just to wear out and about. You can order direct from Julius K9 or go to Clean Run to order. Clean Run is faster. You can order stock labels or you can have custom labels made by Rush to Tug Agility. Again faster than Julius K9.
You can get the harnesses in lots of fun colors. And the best par - they have a flashlight loop so you can put a small flashlight on your dog. I use this when we walk in the dark.

I used a collar with patches when we were tracking on public grounds, it worked very well. I have two sets of patches, one regular (shown), and one highly reflective. No one bothered my dog except asking sometimes what we were training for. I don't remember where I bought it but it's like on this link Service ID Collars : Dog Equipment, Police Dog, Schutzhund, Service Dog, Dog Agility
PS I chose a collar and a light harness because it's very easy to take the patches and the harness off after training and continue with other business. I don't like to drag around a lot of gear but my dog is not a working dog so your case may be different.

|Liesje||I recommend the JuliusK9 IDC Beltharness. It's a very simple harness (but very well made, I've used it for agitation/bitework). Black will not draw attention to the dog. You can buy whatever words/patches you want.|

It's also possible to buy "in training" patches and put them on a harness, if you use a harness in training that could be a good option. I've seen several people use the Ruffwear Webmaster harness with patches added.
Here are some other "in training" vests/options:
Clean Run: TACT Training Vest
Dog In Training Vest - The Pawsitive Dog
