|We have the Kurgo harnesses, since a few have mentioned them. I haven't really been overly thrilled with them. They were very pricey for what they are, do not fit very well, and have not held up well either. Also, they are NOT crash rated, so if that's your criteria choose a different one.
The harness itself has a chest plate that is a bit too narrow on my dogs, and tends to slip back and forth across their chest, and the waist straps allow for even more sideways motion so sometimes if we're running with it it can fall totally to one side of the dog, which is very awkward. We use it in the car and also when running, and after about a year of use it looks like it's been through the war. I guess maybe we're rough on harnesses?
Their tether system is really kinda stupid unless you use the carabiner and clip it to an impact rated hook in your car. The tethering strap it comes with you can either hook between two seatbelts (which really does nothing for a rambunctious dog or even slamming on breaks) or onto a handlebar, and neither option is particularly sturdy.
Soooo...can't recommend the Kurgo stuff, or EzyDog either, we had similar issues with them.
