Default Ruffwear Front Range/Webmaster

I know this may be a long shot as I think we are some of the only hardcore outdoors people around here- but has anyone tried out the Ruffwear Front Range Harness or the Web Master in xxs.

Copley has a 6 year old webmaster and we LOVE it (it literally saved us from having to spend the night in the back country away from our camp when Copley's knee gave out), but they only recently started making it in the XXS and I am wondering how the fit is on the back strap. Kerri and my husband are getting one of these or the other for Christmas and it is so hard to decide when no stores carry the xxs and no one on any of the outdoor review blogs have tiny dogs. If I knew the last strap in the webmaster would be a good fit I would get it for sure, but not knowing I might just go for the front range.

Here are the two products I am talking about-
Ruffwear Web Master™ Harness | Supportive, Multi-Use Dog Harness
Ruffwear Front Range™ Harness - a Comfortable Dog Harness With Two Leash Attachment Points, Including a Chest Attachment Point

Could you order the xxs size and if it doesn't fit, send it back.? I know that is a pain, but at least you would know.

I haven't tried the tiny webmaster- most of their harnesses run too large for my tinies. I have a front range for my 25 lb dog though.

You aren't the only hardcore outdoors person here! I'm crazy! And so are my dogs.

That used to be the case- I was always so upset nothing came in small sizes because we LOVE anything ruffwear for our bigger dog who at 20lbs used to be an xs! But now almost everything they make starts at a 13 inch girth- so it goes pretty tiny.

I recently had a Cavoodle pup come to class in a Webmaster and it was a good fit . I'm not sure what size it was but this dog would have been about 4-5kg.

I have the smallest of the front range but it still doesn't fit my pup right. She is 7 pounds and her measurements are a bit out of wack...so even clothes have to be customizeable to consider. I've tried a UK brand called Julius-K9 (plus they are pretty cheap compared to Ruffwear even being shipped overseas)...which fits pretty well.

How is the fit off? That is my worry because Kerri has a very deep chest almost like a whippet or doberman and a pretty tiny neck. (9in at the neck and about 15 around the middle.)

Kerri has a julius K9 that she uses for her therapy dog stuff, it's a great harness! Whenever we order it always comes from Germany, the shipping can be pretty bad but a bunch of us get together to order when we want something. It's not quite what we are looking for for camping/hiking though. Everything here is so dusty it just destroys velcro, and I can't see it standing up to regular washing like the ruffwear stuff does. Also it would be impossible to pick her up by it, i'm looking for that in a pinch!

Here is a a shot of Kerri in her JuliusK9-
