Perfect fit!

I was struggling to find a harness to fit my 1 yr old whippet. His long neck and slim body did not match any harnesses from the major brands - one harness caused skin abrasions on his armpits from the rubbing while he walked.

Now Ziggy is enjoying comfortable walks in his Hi & Light harness and - may I add - looking very smart! It's easy to put on, super lightweight and has heaps of space for his armpits. So happy with this harness!

Hi & Light in the tropics.

We only bought a new harness because after a year or so of wearing her current harness, the colour faded and the straps grubby. My girl wears her harness in the rain, runs through muddy waters, lays down in mud, rolls in bird poop. Add the days of harsh Cairns sun as well. Anyways the stitching is still top notch, just the salmon colour with blue straps...dirty. We bought a new one to wear at fundraisers for our local animal rescue.
The white Bichon Frise was at the same "Palm Cove Dog Show". My Shera is the Cattle dog x Kelpie.
This was the best photo with the harness showing as she did have a bandana on as well.

I had been struggling to find a good comfortable harness for my Jack Russell that wasn't just a big dog harness with shorter straps. Finally I found the Ruffwear Hi & Light (xxs) and it's perfect. Everything has been considered - and it's structurally designed appropriately for the recommended dog size. It's light, adjustable, strong yet not bulky, nice colour and we'll manufactured. In my humble opinion, it's the best harness on the market for a small dog.

New Colours! Hi & Light Dog Harness - Lightweight, Sporty

This is our 2nd hi & Light.Harness.

My snoodle, cuddles loves his harness, it is light and fits him well. The fabric is easy care. I’ve brought other brands and they lay left in the cupboard. I can thoroughly recommend this product.

Hi and light dog harness

This harness is perfect for our springer puppy, fits perfectly, doesn’t rub or impede her movement and she enjoys putting it on. Many adventures await this little pocket rocket! 🚀

Perfect harness for a very sensitive boy

My 10 year old whippet has always struggled in harnesses. They rub on his paper thin skin and just tear it open. I've tried different styles, had them professionally fitted, custom made, different materials. He's a large whippet so he fits medium harnesses from Ruffwear.
The Hi & Light Harness is so gentle on my boy. It doesn't cut in or rub on his skin at all. It doesn't choke him if he pulls to sniff something, he doesn't shy away when I put it on him.
Walks are back to being enjoyable for him!

Great colour!

We are very happy with our purchase. It is just as described and our girl Dixie looks fabulous in her harness. She took it for a spin doing parkrun with us this past weekend. Thank you! Please make this colour available in other harnesses.


Many thanks for the guidance in purchasing this harness, it has been amazing for our whippet pup. Will purchase another when she is fully grown.
