Fantastic!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We use this product while biking and skateboarding and it's incredible. The harness fits our pup perfect and she is always so excited when she sees it come out of the closet. Everything appears well made and holds up to the constant tugging it endures.

Great

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

The hip belt is great, allows lead movement across your waist as dogs turn. We use ours for bikejoring and the hip belt is much better than the bike mounted systems as it allows you to adjust the pull at your center of gravity and thus maintain balance easier. The harness and lead work really well also. The harness is a little more difficult to put on the dog than most other joring harnesses I've tried, but it works well. I purchased a 2 dog lead from another manufacturer, but use it with the Ruffwear hip belt and harness.

Over priced

Would you recommend this product?.: No

The dog harness is a pain to get on and fits weird, it bunches on the back which may be on purpose to act as a handle but I would rather a harness that fit properly. Overall I am unhappy with this product because it is VERY expensive compared to normal sled dog harnesses and equipment, which would be ok if I thought it was good quality. The human harness seems nice, it fits at least but again function is more important than snazy looks so I will be seeking different gear.

Wonderful!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We have rented this product at the local ski store for the last 2 weekends too see if the two of us would be able to do this as a sport together or if we would go squirrel chasing and one of us would become frustrated. It has been a success!! Both the gear and the sport. The harness was very easy to use. We are looking at purchasing a harness. Its nice to be able to try it out first!!!

Meh.

Would you recommend this product?.: No

Tried this for skijoring, but it's completely useless. My dog is 75lbs and an enthusiastic puller, and any time there was a slight jolt in the towline the emergency release was activated and my dog was loose in the tracks... It seems counter-intuitive for a joring towline to release whenever the dog starts pulling.

Fantastic!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Very well thought out and reliable system. We use this system in all seasons and has held up to the beginning of our second winter. Everything about it is fantastic including the handle on the back that I see is not included in the newer harness.Assisting with getting a tired 85lb dog into the back seat of my truck is helpful for her safety of not slipping on the side rails. The hip belt and bungee have served us well while camping in provincial parks as well. Walks on the beach, blading in the warm months, to skiing through our parks in the winter...this system is all you need.

Very Good

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Love this omnijore package. But, I am in agreement with the other review that the handle on the dog harness comes in really handy at times and I'm missing that. Overall though, I believe Ruffwear makes the best skijorning products out there and will continue to buy from them.

Very good but has room for improvement

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

The plastic buckles could be replaced with metal ones, metal doesn't breakdown as fast, is much stronger and in my opinion easier to open and close. Also I wish the towline could be adjusted in length. I'm always afraid my dog will dart in front of a vehicle so I like to keep the leash short when I jog in the city with him. Other than these two things the system is awesome!

Almost Perfect

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have last year's version of the Omnijore system. It's great. The hipbelt is very comfortable, easy to release if necessary, and has just the right amount of pockets to keep a couple of small items organized. The towline is perfect, with a beefy bungee sewn in that helps reduce the shock loading of a crazed dog taking off at full speed. I recently purchased a second Omnijore harness for my second dog (previously I took them skijoring one at a time, or used their Webmaster harnesses when rollerblading with them simultaneously). There new version has a few changes, some of which I like and some of which I don't. The new model is not as wide on top, which probably helps keep my pooches cooler since there is less fabric covering them. However, it now also means there is no handle on top. I really like having the handle as a means to help control them when necessary. The second change is in the belly strap. The previous version connected via a plastic quick release buckle. I appreciated how quickly I could get the harness on and off. The new one connects via a metal talon hook, which is a pain in the rear to connect. Maybe it will loosen up over time and use as the webbing stretches a bit, but for now it is annoying. On the other hand, metal lasts longer than plastic (although I can't see how the old buckles would ever fail unless left out in the weather). So overall, the Omnijore system is still great, and if you aren't familiar with the old style you won't be missing anything. But I sure do wish that handle and quick-release buckle were back.
