I understand the intent of a forward leash mounting point, but this harness as a whole is just not designed well. Ignoring this company's terrible infomercial-like product videos, this harness is just way too finicky to adjust. Four adjustment points is just way too complicated to get right. Get it too tight and it chafes my dog's arm pits, get it too loose and the front strap sags to the dog's legs. Getting a perfect sideways "T" shape out of the harness is impossible with how small the O-rings are and how stiff the straps are. And stiff straps are uncomfortable - my dog constantly scratched at it and bit at it.
