For agitation you would need a harness with a soft pad at the chest and a handle to manipulate the torso. Generally, it's OK, just be careful with the buckles, they are made of plastic and easy to break. Actually, all nylon harnesses have them plastic.

I like this shop for their quality, especially their leather stuff.

I'm into leather myself.

|andreaB||Just got the first one on Catlemaid list in her post. It is little heavy, but fits really nice and padding on chest is great. Seems sturdy. And love quick release. Will give it first try this weekend.|

Definitely wouldn't want nylon or plastic, but what about something like that second link posted? A.S.A.T. with metal fasteners?

I agree with Frank...leather is the best for these harnesses....I could get one made with all beata/biothane straps and just a leather padded chest plate...in the same style as the traditional leather ones...

I have a nylon one that I've used, but it's crash tested and the failure point is so insanely high, I'd bet leather would actually rip sooner. I would never, ever use a pet type harness for protection (Easy Walk, pet store brand harnesses, ComfortFlex).
Otherwise I own and use this one:

As a helper. If someone comes to my club with a harness that is nylon with plastic buckles, NO WAY I'm working that dog... I have seen the plastic buckles explode in cool weather if the stick hits them by mistake, I've seen the nylon tear and the dog come shooting out like a missle and the harness still attached to the backtie.
If you want a harness for protection work, there is nothing better then the leather chest plate.
I have had my 2 for 18 years and they are perfect, it just requires a little bit of care every year or 2...(15 mins each)
Don't put your helpers safety at risk.....
