How do you like the handles? I prob won't be using them a whole lot since I don't hu t out of a boat right now but the area I train her sometimes I would need it. Do you feel it is pretty sturdy?
In Plano too so it doesn't get too too cold so I assume the neoprene works well for you on warmth.
like others have said - handles are solid. I use them from time to time to held load dog up when tired or drag over the side of a boat. The whole thing seems very well built. Doesn't seem to rub my dog raw like some of the other velcro ones I've used. The zipper can be a pain if your dog won't sit still long enough to get the damn thing on like mine but no biggie. Warmth wise it seems to help him retain some core heat. He aint got much coat to work with so anything helps! I'm still convinced he's the dumbest smartest dog I've ever owned. He'll kill himself one day from trying too hard if I let him.
