The Non-stop dogwear Nansen Nome harness 5.0 is an ergonomic pulling harness for mushing.
The harness was thoroughly tested on a distance that equals going around the World 16 times. It is the harness Thomas Wærner used when he won the Iditarod in 2020. The pulling-harness is designed to let the dog perform optimally without restrictions on movement or breath. The Y-shaped front and flat chest piece utilizes all power the dog puts into the harness. A straight section over the dog's neck provides full freedom of movement in the shoulder area.
For dogs who are pulling to one side, this harness decreases the risk of strain because the back strap travels on the attachment point, which levels the harness and dog. A reflective flap in the neck makes it possible to see any irregularities in the dog`s movement, even if it`s dark. The Nansen Nome harness 5.0 is available in half-sizes, which have the same back length but a larger neck circumference. The half-sizes have a red end-rope, full-sizes have a blue end-rope. The backstrap length on this harness varies from size to size. But the total length of the harness is the same, regardless of size.
We always construct the inner lining so that all materials overlap without any hard edges. Harnesses are made from durable, tightly woven nylon and have a cell foam base to prevent water soaking in. Every seam has its smooth side towards the dog's body, all to make sure the harness does not chafe the dog. All our harnesses have integrated 3M reflective materials for the dog's security. This anatomical design approach with freedom of movement and comfortable breathing is our trademark.
