OneTigris® Upgraded FIRE WATCHER Dog Harness

Application due date: 2018-11-17
SKU: TG-GBX03-BKM-A、TG-GBX03-BKL-A
Unit: 4
Status: Under Gear Testing
Description:


The FIRE WATCHER Dog Harness has been widely accepted by our customers since it was launched years ago. We are grateful that we have made such a popular dog gear and most importantly enabling more and more puppies and their owners to enjoy the convenient and tacticool life that tactical gear could provide. With the expansion of our customer volume, we noticed there're some problems with this harness and the need of upgrading is on its way.

The biggest problem we have received from both customer email and Amazon customer service is the sizing problem and side sliding of the harness itself. After times of testing and comparing with other harness, including our own and harness available in the market, we found that the sliding issue was mainly caused by the loose front chest. We contacted owners of different breeds and asked them to help us measuring their dog's front chest. With the help of our customers and friends we finally decided to make the front chest in a more reasonable size.

No. Soy un instructor de perros de rescate, y puedo probar tu artículo en situaciones reales de trabajo con perros rastreadores. Esto es muy exigente para el arnés, especialmente en términos de desplazamiento lateral.

¿Cómo va a probar el (los) producto (s)?
Mi intención es hacer un video sobre la prueba del artículo. Primero se lo enviaré, y si parece bueno, lo publicaremos en youtube.

I will test this product in my daily job with jack it will be tested at work covering various scenarios
It will be tested in training for agitation work so this will test the clips strength and the d ring attachment point , all the stitching will be loaded as jack is a strong powerful dog and ultimately the fit will be tested against rubbing and other discomfort issues . I will be taking pictures of jack training in the harness and also with Day to day work

Good morning Onetigris,

I would like to tender an application to evaluate and test this vest (SKU TG-GBX03-BKM-A、TG-GBX03-BKL-A)

1. To date I have not been part of the testing programme, albeit I have suggested a number of improvements via the facebook page and latterly offered a few suggestions on this site.
I belong to a military webbing equipment development group. A former UK servicemen (Military Police Close Protection and Reserve Joint Helicopter Force ) with 30 years military experience, coupled with 18 years of Police experience mostly as Tactical Support. I at present deploy to complex environments as a civilian expert in support of the UK Stabilisation Group to countries in crisis. functioning equipment that will not let me down is a subject that I am passionate about. My son serves in the Army and ways to improve his and his mates kit are never far from my mind.

2. I have had a onetigris military training vest that was incorrectly sized for my large sized labradoodle. A power train tactical k9 Harness with 4 supplied pouches. This I gave to my colleague who has a Malinois. As it was a better fit, towards that dogs withers (abdomen/rear) My labradoodle is narrow towards the rear. Albeit this dog harness was well constructed it was not ideal for the anatomy of my dog, hence I passed it on where it is better suited.

I often adapt equipment in order to improve its function. I belong to a military webbing equipment development group, which improves and develops equipment, for UK service/police personnel.

3. Should I be fortunate enough to test your product, I will give honest constructive feedback, as to the positives and negatives of the product and offer ideas for solutions and improvements. I will upload photos of any modifications I make. I live in rural England where my dog jumps fences and pushes through hedges and dense shrub when out running and training. I believe the shorter back length of the fire watcher design would be more suitable to my breed of dog. I can see one or two possible shortfalls/improvements from the pictures above but would need to evaluate the vest to confirm my thoughts.

I have just shown Dougal the photos above and he has wagged his tail enthusiastically, In fact he has gone to the window to look for the delivery van see photo below.

If selected he says he would like to evaluate a medium size in black please. As the previous large in coyote never really fitted him. See photo below.

No. I didn't test your gear before and been wanting to do so, I’ve applied for other gear testing but I don’t get chosen,

Whether or not they have purchased our FIRE WATCHER Dog Harness?

Yes, I’ve purchased this harness before and notice the issue you are referring to. I would gladly test this new version and compare it to the original one.

I take my dog out for long walks or to trails near by. I’m always using the harness on him. By doing so, I’ll be able to tell right away if the issue continue. Not only that, I’ll advertise the updated harness on my business IG account.. JLDOGTRAINING101

No. I haven’t tested the gear before in the program but I do own some of your gear and love it. It works well with my dogs and I’d love to be part of the testing program and test the gear.

Yes. I do own the fire weather dog harness and know the issue of sizing and slipping so I’d be happy to compare the two.
how will you test the product(s)?
I will take some photos and share them with you and on social media. I’ll post photos on Instagram explaining the difference between the two and explain how this one is better sizing wise(if accurate). I can also create a short video clip to share on YouTube.

whether or not they have been a part of the OneTigris Gear Testing Program before?
No. I didn't know there was a testing program until recently. So I haven't yet done any gear testing.
whether or not they have purchased our FIRE WATCHER Dog Harness?
Yes. I retired from the US Army (24yrs) after i developed some injuries while serving overseas. I then started training a service dog. One of the first vests I purchased was the fw. We used it everywhere we went. It did have issues with sliding to the side, and occasionally bunching up in the back. i often had to recenter on my dogs back. I could not use the leash on the harness because it did slide around. I had tried both a M & LG. I also have a large blk German Shepherd that i also take on walks.
how will you test the product(s)? It will be used as a service dog vest, but also for help on the trails and on daily walks. I also have molle packs i like to use on it. I will provide pictures and honest feedback.

No. I have not officially tested gear before. I just registered and became aware of the program. I have purchased several products. The bungee leash( x2) and The Military Collar. I have no complaints on any products. We go on alot of hikes in the woods, in all weather/ terrain conditions. (Sun, snow, rain) The gear holds up beyond expectations. I love this company, and quality of craftsmanship.

I have also purchased the original fire watcher harness for my English Bull Terrier a little over a year ago.( I have 2 EBT. One is still a pup.) The harness has held up very well. No problems with the quality. There is a tiney bit of a sliding issue, especially when weight is off set. (Bag on only one side) However, I believe this is a great product all around. Due to the build of my dog, his chest is very wide. This was an issue with other harnesses, and the original FW harness was the only great fit I encountered for my breed's build. I'm curious to see how the upgraded one will fit, with the new chest size adjustments. I hope the original FW harness will still be an option!
We intend to offer reviews here on the company's website, Chewy.com is also another great site to offer feedback. We intend to post photo's with a caption review/ video of harness in use on our hikes via social media....@Versace.n Bronx #Team1TG

Hello friends!

My name is Jennifer and Farley is my 7 year old (very spoiled and obsessed over) black/rust Male Doberman.

He has neck and spinal issues like many dobies do so we do not use collars for walking, only use harnesses.

We wanted a good looking, well working harness that would fit our many needs.

After months of research we boiled it down to a few and the Firewatcher won.

We struggled with the size because I'd read all the reviews of fitting issues.

Farley is a very standard 80lbs.
Thin but deep chested...and here lies the issue.

His measurements (neck: 23, back: 29, chest: 34) put him into the Large size.
I'd stalked people on instagram and reached out to countless owners of this harness as well as coming here to the One Tigris community and also the company itself.

We settled on the Large.
It fits like a dream everywhere except the neck (this is of course with the straps pulled all the way tight).
It gaps which causes the entire harness to shift from side to side on his upper shoulders.
It also allows him to back out of it if he were to have a "freak out moment" (which Farley has many when encountering animals in the woods on our walks).

I considered sizing down to the medium but was told that it wouldn't fit his chest at all.
And that the small gap isn't bad to have especially when he pulls as it won't put direct pressure on his windpipe.
Ok, I can sort of buy this....
but the backing out of and the shifting still bother me.

We purchased the Black and it couldn't look more awesome on my ridiculously handsome boy...pictures attached so you can see what I mean :)

We would love nothing more than to try the new version to see if it corrects the issues that we are having with this one.
We are super passionate about finding the right products for our life (and of course that includes our dog...actually probably more so).

Please consider us!

Thank you,
Jennifer and Farley (bestest boy in all the land)

Edit: I forgot to mention that we've never been official testers before....but would love to be!!!
We will do it up super awesome by testing in all our favorite places (beaches and hiking) and take pics and videos!
