I want to get a different kind of vest for Birdie. The cape vest isn't comfortable for her - no matter how I adjust it. It slides around no matter how it's adjusted.

I've been looking at these ones...

Padded Service Vest

More photos here:

I would get it in red.
I like that it is a smaller vest, but I don't like the handle on it. I really like the rounded handle that is on the Police K-9 vest. It's also made of water proof vinyl coated fabric - so it's probably going to be hot in the warmer months. Also not fond of 1" strap around the girth.

I can get this style in red as a special order with Service Dog - instead of Police on it.. I need to see a picture of this vest on a dog to get an idea if it will fit Birdie right. I like the handle, I like the straps and it's a multi-function harness.

More pictures here:

I like the materials, I like the straps, I like the pocket for ID. I really HATE the sheepskin covers. I am ifey about the bag. I like the reflective strips.

So what do you think?

I like the second one. BUT if you do any amount of using Birdie to brace maybe the last one which is super padded would be a better idea?

I like the blue one and the police dog one but I like ones with pockets...the yellow one is kinda ugly with all that lambskin on it.
