Pros: The long body protects your dogs body from harmful debris such as tree branches, sharp rocks, and concrete. The Pals grid system allows plenty of room for attachments.
Cons: Not for small dogs under 30 pounds.
Bottom line: The Feliscanis tactical dog vest is a great vest for deep woods hiking, tactical training or if you want to have your dog carry some of the load.
The Feslicanis training tactical dog vest is a great vest to assist with training your dog or to help protect him. It covers a good portion of their back and sides preventing any damage or lacerations from debris. I addition, you can worry less about your dog bringing home any critters like fleas or ticks too.
Finding a job for your dog will benefit both you and him. One of the best tools you can get your dog when giving him a job is a tactical harness. A tactical harness is different from the traditional harnesses you find at your local pet shop. Tactical harnesses allow your dog to feel like they are on the job opposed to just a walk. They allow your dog to carry gear, supplies and identification tags and look cool while doing it.
Not all dogs are willing or capable to do some jobs so choose one carefully for your pup. Social dogs that love people would make for a great medic while serious lone wolf types might like to be the navigator or point man role. If you don’t have a job for your dog to do then use this vest to assist in training.
When searching for a tactical dog harness consider all the jobs your dog both can and want to do and pick a vest best suited to accommodate those jobs. They come in all shapes and sizes so shop around and find the best fit.
If your dog has a lot of energy, all the time, then this vest would make a great tool to help calm him down. Tactical dog vests have been proven to slow dogs down during walks and reduce pulling and tugging. Having the vest on makes your dog feel like they have a job to do and leaves no room for funny business. Consider getting the Ultrafun tactical dog vest to help assist you with training your dog for both easy and more complicated commands.
Attaching a medical kit and supplies to your dogs vest will give him a very important and helpful job as a medic. Whether your training alone with your dog or hiking in a populated area, having medical supplies is always a good idea. Consider attaching a prominent MEDIC badge for identification purposes and let people know your dog has supplies in case of an emergency. This vest has plenty of room for gear and badge attachments.
Whether you’re going on a long hike in the deep woods or participating in a search and rescue mission, having a navigator in your group is important. Now, we all know dogs can’t read maps and navigate but they can carry the gear. With the Molle webbing and secure VELCRO on this vest you can give your dog the navigator title and allow him to carry the gear. Having your dog carry the navigation necessities is great. If you’re ever in need of your compass, map, flashlight or phone, you can easily pull it from your dogs vest instead of digging through your pack.
When walking on a leash, most dogs tend to lead and walk in front of us. Some like to walk with us by our sides but that is rare. When your dog leads he is taking the role of the point man. This causes him to be the first one exposed to a threat or danger. If hiking in the deep woods with wild animals or a neighborhood with wild dogs, consider getting your point man the Ultrafun tactical dog vest.
You can attach necessary items like battery operated LED lights and reflector badges for better visibility, a small cow bell for an audio deterrent, or even protective spikes. The vest itself will also help protect your dog from scratching or minor attacks from wild animals. Make sure your point man is protected and safe during your adventures and training.

The sizing for the Feliscanis vests are precisely the same as the OneTigris model. There are some vendors online that offer this vest in small but it does run a bit long so you may want to consider a shorter style vest. When purchasing this vest consider getting a 4th attachment to even the load. If you already have Molle pouches then you do not have to worry about it. If the vest seems a little big on your dog try adding a water bottle on each side to help weigh it down to fit more snug on your dogs torso.
Make sure and double check your dogs measurements to get an accurate vest. If you’re on the fence between a medium or a large, buy the large. The four adjustable straps will allow you to get a comfortable fit.
The Ultrafun tactical dog vest is made with durable high-density, water-resistant, anti-tear 1000D nylon material. It is made from the same material they use for manufacturing U.S. military gear. To say it’s durable is an understatement. You won’t have to worry about replacing this vest due to a rip or tear in the material.

PALS webbing for Molle attachments
The PALS grid consists of horizontal rows of 1 in Type III nylon webbing, spaced 1 in apart, and reattached to the backing at 1.5 in intervals. This follows the PALS standards used in the U.S. Military. The PALS webbing is used to attach your Molle gear attachments and other gear with attachment options. You can use Velcro or accessories with button straps as long as it can fit through the 1″ PALS grid.
The Onetigris tactical harness is great for everyday use. It has a 3-point harness system that allows you get the perfect fit to your dogs unique body. It has a soft, thin and water proof material underneath to prevent chaffing and soreness. The vest is not too big in length or in weight. Not having a big and bulky vest will easily allow your dog to lie down and rest in the shade.
You don’t want your dog to overheat or have to take a cool down break every 10 minutes. Keeping your dog cool while training or hiking is important. You want to ensure the vest you put on your dog allows proper ventilation and air flow. If you plan on training or hiking in the summer heat then you’ve got nothing to worry about with this vest. The thin material allows for maximum air flow while also protecting from the harmful sun UV rays.

In addition, the adventures, missions and hikes you go on will build a stronger bond between you and your dog. The simplicity, durability and attachment space of the Feliscanis tactical dog vest make it a fantastic option for both the seasoned veteran or a new recruit learning the ropes.
