Default Car harness

Anyone have a recommendation for a good car harness?

We sell the Easy Rider at work: http://www.amazon.com/Easy-Rider-Car.../dp/B000301EHK

It just doesn't really appeal to me though. Plus when I take it out of its packaging, it gives me a mini panic attack trying to figure out where all the straps go and how to freaking put it on lol.

I bring Juno lots of places and she sits in the front passenger seat. I've been in a car accident, I come across stupid drivers pretty much every time I go out, so I figure I need something instead of just instinctively throwing my arm out across her chest when I hit the brakes (which I will still always do regardless lol).

1000% recommend the Roadie. I can bring Frodo's in for you to look at if you want. Absolutely love it.

I use the EasyRider for Gavroche and Logan's regular leather working harness for him. The EasyRider is SUPER simple to put on, Gavroche practically puts it on himself (okay, I have to buckle the buckle, but if I hold it up he'll step right in).

That said, neither of the options I use are really proven "safe" in a car crash. I feel like it's better than nothing, but I have yet to be 100% satisfied by ANY harness. But these work for me and my needs as it stands right now. If nothing else it keeps them in place when I have to make sudden stops or sharp turns.

Awesome I will bring it tomorrow.

I used the Easy Rider like...twice. Then I threw it in the closet. If I wasn't scared of fire I would have burned it.

Roadie fan here. I have a few extra, but sadly I think they would be too big for Juno.

Roadie ALL the way. I have one I don't use, but it's too small for Juno I'm pretty sure.

What's Juno's girth? I have several Size 6 Roadies that need a home because they are too big for my crew...
