I ordered a belt for canicross from Neewa and a bungee. I was worried I would find the belt uncomfortable. Not at all! It fits well and is very adjustable and supportive while running with my fast dog. My only wish is that the thigh straps had a clasp instead of having to step in and out of it each time.
I originally bought the 5.5 to 6.5ft. for running and love it (especially the handle for passing folks on the trail), then realized I needed to purchase the 6.5 to 8ft. as well for skijoring after reviewing my regional rules ("line length minimum seven feet (7’) maximum twelve feet (12’) as measured from the skier’s belt buckle to the snap on the dog's harness").
I have both the short and long versions. The long version is perfect for skijoring and the short one is great for hiking.
This is such a game changer for my back! I use it with the hiring waste setup. I would also recommend you add a quick release to it.
The thought of skiing behind a freight train of an immensely fast and furious Komondor was a bit suicidal. I imagined what taking flight at any moment behind a racing, raging dog might feel like. Yet, the Neewa Adjustable Racing Harness, Tug Line w/Bungee and Skijoring Belt was able to comfortably tame the beast and take the fear out of flying through the snow here, there, and everywhere. ... Well, almost. With much Thanks, Willow and Dan!
