THE HARNESS OF CHOICE OF FOUR-TIME IDITAROD CHAMPION JEFF KING.
Jeff King, a four-time winner of the Iditarod worked with Ivana, the owner of Howling Dog Alaska, to manufacture a modified Light Weight Harness, and it is simply brilliant! The Hybrid Light Weight Harness is a unique combination of an x-back harness and a “cross pull” design. This harness can do it all: It will give you the power of an x-back harness (by attaching the tug line to the end of the harness), and it will give you the distance “overdrive” of the cross/side pull (by attaching the tug line to one of the side rings). The side rings can also be used for attaching shafts (cart shafts, pulka shafts).
The Hybrid Light Weight Harness is the perfect fitting harness for any athletic racing sled dog. The harness is made out of one-inch wide lightweight, extremely durable tubular webbing. Specially constructed V-shaped breastplate design keeps harness centered. Closed-cell padding extends along the harness’s entire length for added comfort. The harness features reflective stickers for increased night-time visibility.
