Hiker Belt description
Flexible waist adjustment and leg straps keep the belt in place and support the body when pulling.
The flexi section decreases stress when your dog suddenly pulls on the leash, ensuring comfortable movement. The product is equipped with pockets for a water bottle and mobile phone. Bright 3M reflectors improve safety in the dark. The product can be combined with any Hurtta leash. Because the panic lock enables the quick release of the lead, it is also suitable for use in competitions (in my opinion something like dog trekking).
• Versatile padded belt for hiking, trekking, skiing and skating with your dog.
• Separate pockets for water bottle and mobile phone
• Sturdy and comfortable belt
• Gives way if your dog suddenly pulls on the leash
• The panic lock enables the quick release of the lead

Firstly I was surprised with fast delivery from Hurtta. Massive plus for that, but at the same time I was a bit confused as it was heavy parcel. Once opened I realised it was the hiker belt. At first glance looks bulky and big. However once I tried it on it felt better and very comfy. I was excited to try it out for my hiking adventure with the dogs.
The belt is easy to wear, few changes to make it fit to my body and it is on. Clipping leads on the panic lock was simple and I really liked it. I tried only with one dog, and it was great. However with two dogs it was moving around my body even tho it had two leg straps.
I really like the zip pocket which was perfect size for my car keys and holder for water as it wouldn’t fall. We hike uphill and downhill and it was great with pullying dog (while my belt sat on my hips), when attaching Laferra belt felt a bit uncomfy an moved around a lot. It is great to make your hands dog-free so I could take photos.
This is not recommended for canicross (even tho Hurtta is trying to promote it for canicross) due to its weight but also with it easy movement it would hurt your back with a pullying dog. This is great belt for hiking and walking with your dogs.
