Sagan Here's mine. 33" Chest, 4"overlap on chest strap. He's coming up on a year and half so he may out grow the straps. If he does I plan to send it in and have longer straps put on so I don't have to deal with two buckles. If longer straps are back ordered you might want to consider that.

Charlie, I go over that extra piece in the cobra buckle not under it.

I didn't know you could request custom buckles. That's good to know. I don't like Fastex either. I've broken a few and my dog's current collar has one. I'm likely going to end up getting the matching cobra buckle nylon collar from RAM/SIGK9.

Off topic, but I saw braided and knotted leather leashes. Is there any notable difference between the two? Is one stronger than the other? Not sure if you've noticed, but I love getting into technicalities.



I wish they made this one with black chrome. I wonder if that's an option?

CharlieB.Barkin Also, semi-stupid question. In the picture I posted of the cobra buckles, the nylon strap loops through that rectangular opening. In the middle of that opening is this sliding metal bar on the male end. Did I connect the nylon straps properly to the cobra buckle?

CharlieB.Barkin Chestplate Close up (has velcro for patches and whatnot):



Cobra Buckles (They face opposite directions):


Harness and pouches (2 v-rings):

2 medium molle pouches and a mesh drying bag for when I full up his collapsable water bowl. Each pouch can fit your average 500ml plastic water bottle. I'm hoping I can sit an aluminum one in each.

Nigel Are the straps nylon? We've had nylon repaired and one of our lola prong collars lengthened out to fit over Rangers big fat head. Anyplace with a commercial sewing machine could alter it easily, quickly and on the cheap. We used a motorcycle leather shop the first time and found a doggy clothing store closer by the next.

ApselBear I expected good stuff after reading others' comments on Ray Allen stuff. I am curious how Nancy thinks her harness holds up after wet lake work. If the harness even gets wet lol
