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. Velcro 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 Velcro
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 Velcro allows for department or unit patches to be easily attached.

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!

Very nice tracking harness. Looking forward to start working with our dog tracking.

Outstanding Quality

This harness totally blew away expectations, and I can see this piece of equipment lasting the full lifetime of our canine companion. There is a huge amount of adjustability with the hook and loop making this system as close to perfect size you can get with some time and tinkering. The hardware is all legit, high quality metal (stainless steel?) that has such a satisfying click when buckled… sounds unimportant but it’s just a clear mark of craftsmanship. Design is really handsome and “tacticool” even for folks like me who don’t use their dog for work but like to have an extra handle for another layer of security. We use this harness for hikes, swimming, playtime, and when in more crowded areas and it’s worked great so far! Absolutely no failures and I don’t foresee any, anytime soon. That, and not to mention the fantastic customer service and support to servicemen I had the pleasure of receiving made this purchase an easy decision. Definitely an investment but one I’d say was worth making. Thanks Modern Icon, I’m praying your business continues to grow and appreciate your service! 🇺🇸🦮

Great harness for Cane Corso

The harness works well for my cane Corso. The only thing I’d recommend is instructions on how to adjust the harness

We recently purchased the tracking harness for use in bite sport training and for shed antler hunting. This harness has excellent fitment, adjusting to size was a breeze. Great product and recommend to anyone wanting a multipurpose piece for their dog.
