OneTigris Tactical Dog Molle Vest Harness Training Dog Vest Review

OneTigris Tactical Dog HarnessThis tactical dog vest harness by OneTigris features three detachable pouches that allow you to carry a ton of gear, adjustable webbing for improved stability and a Velcro panel that allows you to attach patches of your choice. This popular model is perfect for service and working dogs and is built with durability and comfort in mind.

Because this harness is designed specifically for working dogs and service dogs, it should be able to handle a lot of wear and tear. The large removable pouches will allow the pet owner to carry around a wide variety of supplies ranging from pet food, water bottles, and pet toys, to medication, wallets, collapsible water bowl and other supplies you’ll need throughout your day.

OneTigris is a company that’s known for their tactical dog harnesses, which is why it’s so surprising that this model didn’t seem to score well with consumers. Many felt that the buckle and strap system that the manufacturer is known for simply didn’t stand up to past designs, with consumer reports that both the buckles and straps failed to work. This is a major safety issue and one that’s enough to make some consumers pass this model by.

So, what’s the truth? Does this model stand up to previous harnesses produced by OneTigris, or is this harness seriously lacking in quality?

Tactical Dog Harness by OneTigris Overview and Features

This harness is equipped with MOLLE on both sides for use with MALICE or MOLLE pouches.  The inside of the harness features a grid design for ultimate breathability.  On the collar, you’ll find a soft padding insert which helps to prevent chafing along the neck.

The harness also comes with two handles located on the front and back for attaching a leash. In order to avoid an unnecessary break when using too much strength if the dog is pulling or trying to bolt, the manufacturer recommends using a standard dog collar for guiding purposes.

The harness is available in five sizes, including extra small and extra-large:

The extra-small harness will fit dogs with a girth of fourteen to twenty inches, a neck length of eight and a half inches to eleven and a half inches, and a back length of eleven inches with a width of ten inches.

The small harness will fit dogs with a chest that measures in at fifteen to twenty-one and a half inches, a neck that measures nine to twelve inches and a back length of thirteen inches with a width of eleven inches.

The medium harness fits pets with a girth of sixteen and a half inches to twenty-seven and a half inches, a neck measuring at eleven and a half inches to fifteen inches and a back length of sixteen inches with a width of thirteen inches.

The large harness will fit a chest girth of eighteen and a half inches to thirty-six and a half inches, a neck measurement of fourteen to eighteen inches and a back length of nineteen inches with a width of fourteen inches.

The extra-large size will fit a dog with a girth of twenty and a half inches to forty inches, a neck that measures in at ten and a half inches to twenty-one inches and a back length of twenty-one inches with a width of sixteen and a half inches.

The manufacturer recommends taking your pet’s full measurements before ordering in order to prevent returns or exchanges, or sores caused by a poor fit.

The two large detachable pouches are built tough and allow the user to carry a wide range of supplies and enough gear to easily get you through your outdoor adventure.

Tactical Dog Harness Pros and Cons

Pros: The large Velcro strip down the center of the vest allows the user to add plenty of patches and the placement of the Velcro makes all patches highly visible. The MOLLE webbing system makes it extremely easy to place or remove pouches as needed. The handles located at either end of the harness allows the owner fast and easy access. Without the pouches, the vest itself is slim fitting and very lightweight, making it easy to bring service dogs into crowded places or tighter spaces such as bathroom stalls. The harness is very customizable and designed to fit a wide range of breeds. The harness is also easy to wash, simply rinse it off in cold water and hang it to dry.

Cons: Some pet owners did not like the belly straps, which were not very flexible and didn’t stretch enough to accommodate faster movements such as running. When the straps on the harness are adjusted to fit the dog correctly when the dog is standing, the belly straps end up being too tight once the dog sits. When adjusted when the dog is sitting, the straps will then be too loose when the dog stands. The lack of padding was also an issue for some consumers. There is no padding on any of the straps and considering the length of time a service dog wears their harness, developing sores can be a problem. Other buyers felt that for a working dog vest this harness did not support the actions of a working animal. All of the straps and buckles tend to come undone without effort. The pouches also tend to fall off for no reason. Overall, the harness has no balance. Many consumers complained that the middle buckle was constantly coming undone, especially for owners with hyperactive dogs.

Consumers who are looking for a harness with a better reputation for durability and quality should learn more about the Canine Equipment Ultimate pulling dog harness, which has a lot to offer in terms of versatility, strength and a more custom fit.

OneTigris Working Dog Harness Conclusion and Rating

Consumers who purchased OneTigris Tactical Dog Molle Vest Harness Training Dog Vest in hopes of finding a versatile model that could handle tough everyday use were extremely disappointed in its performance. This model is not suited for large, hyper dogs, due to the poor quality of the straps and buckles. Dog owners who purchased the harness gave it a rating of three and a half stars out of five stars for quality issues.

  1. I bought this to replace my Service Dog’s vest after she started to outgrow her old one. I bought a black one since I could not get the green with matching pouches. The vest arrived very quickly and everything was intact. I put this vest to the test the first week with a trip to Georgia and Florida; 3 plane rides, the Georgia Aquarium, numerous restaurants, the beach, a bus ride, and a long hike through a nature preserve have proven how much I love this vest. My dog is able to carry her own things. The medical pouch holds Benadryl, Neosporin, bandaids, vet wrap, a pack of tissues, dog treats, and a small tube of sunscreen while the other zippered pouch carries a halter nose band and collapsable water bowl. I have now added caribeeners to each of the metal pieces on either end of the vest for whatever uses I may need such as clipping the leash around my waist for improvised handsfree use at a moments notice. The velcro down the back has plenty of space for patches, I have more options now and my dog is more visible since they cover her entire back. The handles at either end of the vest make for very good places to grab when needed. The mole makes it very easy to move pouches as needed. The only time I have used all three pouches was when we went hiking and I needed the extra space. Without the pouches the vest is very lightweight and slim fitting so it is easy to bring my service dog into tighter spaces like the airplane seats and crowded places.My biggest pet peeves: I do not like the belly straps, I wish they had a few inches of elastic so they could stretch a little more with my dog’s movements. When the straps are properly adjusted while standing they are too tight when my dog sits, and when they are adjusted properly for a sitting or down position they are waaaayyy too loose when she stands. My dog will never complain about anything so its hard to tell when she does or doesn’t like something. I had accidentally adjusted the straps too tight and she just sat there barely able to breathe. I would also like strap covers like the chest strap but with more padding. With the amount of time my dog wears her vest it is a necessity she doesn’t develop sores or be uncomfortable. I find it helps to cross the straps but it just isn’t enough to keep it from slipping sideways. Those are my only complains thus far.This vest is a great deal and is very customizable to your needs and wants. You can take off or add anytime. I would buy this vest again! It cleaned up very nice after our beach day with all the sand and salt water. Attached are pictures on the airplane, at the airport, my sister’s graduation, and on our hike (without patches so my dog was off duty, our friend also loves the TigrisOne vest).

  2. I love this product! I purchased this harness for my Great Dane who I am training as a PTSD support dog. Knowing the size of Great Danes in general I bought this in the EXTRA LARGE size. When the product arrived I was very excited to get it on her so she could start getting used to wearing it all the time. As a 156 lb dog with a deep chest, the straps for the chest and belly did not reach. I was not to happy with this and was ready to send the harness back. My wife convinced me to send an e-mail to OneTigris’ customer service to see if anything could be done about this. They replied very quickly and said that they could make a simple extension for the straps that did not fit. Not only were they extremely professional and friendly, but they were also very patient with me since i rarely get on the computer and took a while to respond when they would e-mail. I would recommend OneTigris to anyone looking for a product like this, and I will be shopping with them in the future!

  3. I adopted a humane society pup. I live in South Central Texas. The question of heat doesn’t count. You know it is hot or hotter. I wanted my pup to carry his own water and collapsable food/water dish on all outings. Originally I planned on just tying water bottle to a harness. I began looking for a suitable one here on Amazon. I saw this and similiar types. I made myself go over what I wanted harness to be able to do. I wanted ability to hold pouches for water, food dishes, tie out line and a few small miscellanous items. I looked at many harnesses of this type. I kept coming back to this one. In addition to the numerous positive reviews, I liked the fact of included pouches. I had zero problem getting my pup to wear it. I like the way it looks on him. I like the feel of the material and noticed excellent quality of the stitching. My pup has a build similiar to a German Shepard. He is currently on the small end of medium (27 pounds). He is 4 months old with a vet extimate of 50+ pounds. This medium fits him well. No problem adjusting the straps for him. No problem with slipping or sliding. He bounced around in it for 30 minutes. I will have no problem having him carry his own water and items on our walks. Edited 07January 2018: to prevent or minimize slipping side to side make sure strap across front of chest is snug. I had concerns about rear belly strap and a male dog. Let’s say that concern has not been materialized!

  4. I can’t say enough good things about this harness. It looks bad ass, performs bad ass, and my service dog loves it. When on my service dog looks like he is ready for a tactical mission with the SEALS. Mix and match pouches with MOLLE design and connections. This has more storage than I will ever need. You could load your dog up for a 3 day hike and not have to wear a backpack. There is a ton of room for velcro morale patches. When fitted properly with the 3 straps adjusted properly the harness fits like a glove and is an extension of the dog. My service dog can do everything a service dog does along with everything a regular dog does, even play all wearing the harness. I know it’s comfortable because my dog did not want to take it off the first time I had him try it on. He literally feel asleep wearing it. There are two handles one around dogs neck and the other around the dogs tail. These can be used to lift the dog, restrain or I use them to get help from my dog in getting up from a seated position. There are also two leash attachments one at front and one at back. I bought the tan/khaki version and it looks great. I was a little hesitant because of the price, but I’m so glad I went ahead and tried it. The harness looks, feels durable and made from quality materials with heavy duty stitching attachments, accessories. The underside of the harness or the side touching the dog is made of the same type of moisture resistant design found in a lot of athletic gear. Really great harness especially for individuals active with their dogs hiking, camping, beach, urban incursions, residential zombie apocalypse. Your ready for anything and everything. Seriously feels like it was custom made for my Big Dog! Highly recommend and would buy again in a heartbeat.

  5. If you have a male, the last strap may rub near his wiener– adjust the neck strap a little tighter to avoid this

  6. Amazon Customer

    This is a awesome vest! It came in 3 days! I was worried that it may be small for my german shepherd but a Large size is perfect! It came with the 3 pouches and I love that i can put some dog stuff in it so i won’t have to carry it. I really like that you can put patches on it. It does not bother my dog at all. The dog could move in it great. Yes it is a bit pricey but it was totally worth it! I would buy this product again if needed!

  7. Had the harness for about one year, dog does not wear it full time and the stitching has failed… I will be contacting OneTigris to see if they will replace. One year on a $90 “Tactical” harness that was not worn everyday to me is unacceptable for this company.UPDATE: Contacted customer service on April 13, had a reply back the next day asking for the order number. April 16th stating I would recieve my replacement on the 24th. It arrived the next day! And not only just the harness, the pouches too! VERY EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE! Faith restored. HOPEFULLY this one will last longer than a year! Will be replacing her leash next payday.
