Tracking Harness


The Tracking Harness is made of durable mil-spec materials and climbing rated hardware—creating the strongest, most heavy-duty, tactical dog harness available. Our harness design offers a greater range of motion and allows greater airflow than traditional K9 vests.

Military (MWD), Police ( LEO), and Search and Rescue (SAR) Working Dogs will appreciate the rear chest strap which makes this harness perfect for tracking. The rear strap also allows the dog to be lifted safely and prevents the dog from backing out of the harness.

Apprehension, Personal Protection and Schutzhund (IPO) Working Dogs will appreciate the ergonomic shoulder straps and large padded chest piece, which are perfect for bite work and training.

A large integrated handle gives control of the dog and can be used to lift the dog over obstacles. Loop covered Molle on the left and right sides of the harness allows the handler to attach accessories, pouches or affix ID patches.

This harness has not been strength rated for rappelling.

Heavy Duty Mil-Spec Webbing
We use the same type of webbing the military uses for construction of parachute harnesses throughout the entire harness design which is quick drying, mold and mildew resistant and strength rated to 7,000 lbs.
ISC Klick-Lock Buckles
Klick-Lock Buckles are redundant, meaning both sides have to be depressed to release the buckle and the release buttons are recessed which prevents accidental unclipping.
Integrated Handle
Our large handle gives you complete manual control of your dog and can be used to lift the dog over obstacles.
Padded Chest Plate
Padding at the center of the chest provides comfort and safety for the K9.
Additional Supporting Straps
A second strap secures at the base of the dog's rib cage and an extension from the chest plate keeps it in place. This creates a more stable and safer method of carrying your dog, and keeps the dog from ever backing out of the harness.
Molle and Loop Attachment
The 5” wide x 4” tall Molle Panels we sew onto each side allow the handler to attach accessories and pouches to the harness while the integrated loop backing allows for department or unit patches to be easily attached.

I love the durability and toughness of all modern icon gear! Ita hands down the best in the industry

Best harness

I've been on a mission to find my protection dog the perfect harness that benefits both the dog and myself. I've used high end harnesses from top manufacturers and this is the one.
Main reasons why this dominates the others:
Buckle system: A: Only 2 buckles, only on the left side of the dog, making tight heeling much more comfortable as the buckles are not rubbing on your leg. B: No buckles on the chest or low on the sides means the dog can lay down MUCH more comfortably, no buckles to jam into his chest or sides.
Velcro system: the way Modern Icon designed their velcro system makes this harness extremely low profile and adjustable.
Material: Heavy Duty!! I see this harness lasting years of regular abuse.
Molle system: while the molle area is smaller than some of the previous harnesses I've used, it's perfect size for almost all patches and molle pouches.
Design: everything you need without unnecessary extras that only add weight.
Weight: due to the minimal buckles system, this is the lightest harness with this type of durable material.

No complaints as of 2 months of consistent use!

Well constructed but the weight of the buckles causes the vest to rotate. Should be fixable by offsetting the electronics package to the side opposite the buckles.

Hi Bryan,
Thanks for the review. Yes, on some dogs the buckles can cause the harness to lean a bit. It is purely aesthetic and we note a way to help mitigate that on the how-to page for adjusting the harness: However, if you are going to utilize the molle system, adding gear to the opposite side of the harness will certainly help. If you still need help with your harness please let our support team know so that we can assist you further. Thanks!
