Trail runner system

Must have for two dog walking

So helpful!

Using this thing has been so helpful on morning runs. I can finally bring water, my phone, my keys, and **** bags. Oh, and my dog! It's super easy to attach the leash to the blue strap, and even easier to disconnect it. It lets me run/walk hands free, and my dog doesn't seem to know the difference. Also, I really like the little clasp for keys inside the pocket, so I don't have to worry about dropping them when I have to get out a baggie or check my phone.

It is a nice product. I just think it is a little bulky and the pockets are a little small too use for most stuff. It bounces when I jog with the bottle in it. It is wonderful as far as hands free leash walking and I love the leash!

Not very shock-absorbing

The belt and pockets are nice - comfortable, sturdy, usable. The water bottle is awkward. But the part that killed it for me (and I use a waist leash system with shock absorbing leash every time I go out with my one dog) was the "shock-absorbing, Ridgeline" leash portion. It is WAY too weak for a large dog (60 lbs). She only pulls when she sees a squirrel, but this leash absorbs almost none of the impact. I have other leashes than handle shock WAY better. This was disappointing, as I love the Ruffwear harnesses.
