This is my review of the UPGRADED FIRE WATCHER Dog Harness.
Having purchased the previous model in a size large, it just never did stay centered on my dog and I was constantly having to adjust it, especially when loaded and the dog was activity. I had it snugged up as far as it would go. With the new sizing it looked like Vita, my GSD, would be able to use either, we were chosen to try the medium and I'll have to say it was a great improvement for her, in it staying put. No more issues with it slipping side to side and as you will see from the video, it works with an activity dog at play. I have mine set up with 2 of the electronic organizers and was happy to see even though the vest was shorter in length by one inch from the large the organizers still fit and worked fine. One side is set up for the dog, with potty bags coming out of the cord hole while the other has people things and hand wipes. With the bags loaded and Vita retrieving the gear stays put. There is a bit more flapping movement on one side, the Molles on the bottom row came unattatched and I did not see that until I got the camera out of my face. The quality of workmanship, stitching etc is beautiful, neat, and clean, all straps cross stitched for extra support. The changes I noticed which were not to my liking so much but not a big deal, is there is less padding to the under piece in this upgraded medium, than my previous large, not sure if that was a size difference or why there is a difference there, but more padding is always appreciated. Also the handle is not as substantial, which makes me hesitant to use it too much with a 70+ dog. The velcro wrapping to tie up the ends of the straps is a nice idea, although time consuming, and leaves some dangling. I'll have my spouse adjust the length and take care of the ends for me at some point. I'm going to post the video link now as it took forever to download it. I'm still looking for a way to rotate the video so it's a the right viewing position, I'll work on that more tomorrow, if someone has some suggests that would be great! So in summary the improvements to correct the slippage I feel have been successful!

This padding difference might be caused by different batches. The upgraded version was produced recently, material thickness might not be exactly the same. I will forward it to our designer to check this problem.
. Also the handle is not as substantial, which makes me hesitant to use it too much with a 70+ dog.
(y)Roger that, the handle uses an "x" stitching and we will use more thicker and sturdier strap for the handle when it is open for sale.

I was the first thing I notice taking it out of the package, felt different between my fingers. I'm glad to hear those were not intentional changes:) Here's an idea to consider when offering Gear Testing, if these prototypes with corrective changes are made in a different factory or in a way which creates changes other than the ones you want us to evaluate give us a heads up so we don't get bogged down with trying to figure out the "why of a change" that is less substance than the previous model. Honestly and I was a bit bogged down even getting started testing it because I was disappointed with changes in the fabric, and the dangling strap. For this item a simple note inside with the vest stating, This vest was made in our prototype facility and some of the materials may not be the same quality as will be used in the finally product. The changes we want evaluated are 1) fit and stability of the harness when in use. Just something simple along those lines. It will save some frustration on the part of your testers:)

Thank you for your advice Leah. Sorry for our mistake and we will be aware of that next time when testing prototypes! ;)
