Best Harness for Longer Coat??

I've been using a Curli brand harness on Willow. The harness is great but now with her longer coat I think it makes her mat more on her chest and leg pits. I'm wondering what brand harness those of you with a longer coated dog are using and if it would work any better in regards to matting than the Curli.

I never have found a good harness for a Hav in full coat. :-(

CollarDirect Rolled Leather Dog Harness Step-In Leash



This one was recommended by someone (sorry can't remember who) on a recent thread. I have used it for a couple weeks and it has greatly reduced matting. It took a couple of tries to get the sizing right, but I'm satisfied with it.

Ricky is in his natural long coat. We use the Kurgo harness:



It works great and causes no significant matting. It has attachment points for a leash (not included) at both the shoulder and chest so it provides a lot of flexibility. We use it at least twice a day on his walkies. Highly recommended. We do spend about 10 minutes a day combing him out.

Ricky weighs about 15 pounds and we use the "small" size.

I am the one using the rolled leather dog harness. I had Loki in a small but after his haircut today I may order an xs. He seems so tiny.

When we give Ricky a bath and all wet, he looks like a Chihuahua!
