Can I get an opinion on a harness?

I'm a bit clueless and a bit worried that Timmy especially might be able to wriggle out of a harness, does the one in the link below look secure enough do you think? Is velcro strong enough?

Thanks a million!

I use this one: Premier Gentle Leader Come with Me Kitty Harness & Bungee Leash at PETCO

I use a regular leash though, the bungee thing was weird and I didn't like it. I loved the harness though because it doesn't pull on his neck and it tightens and loosens on his shoulders as he pulls and then relaxes.

Ooh, I like the look of that one. What size did you get? I was thinking of a medium for Timmy, he's a skinny 8lbs

I ordered the Come With Me Kitty harness/leash for Yoshi yesterday. Couldn't find it in the color he wanted (well, I wanted) locally at Petco, PetsMart, Target, or Pet Quarters. So Amazon it was! I think it ended up being cheaper even with shipping, than purchasing it at a store.

I got the medium but had to exchange it for the large for my jumbo(13 lb) boy.

I think a walking jacket is best for cats inside of regular harnesses.

I bought a figure 8 harness for Misa and I'm starting to not like it. I mean she used to have it on, but when I gently tug her, mroe pressur comes on her neck. I'm trying to save up money to get a new more supportive harness like the kitty holster. I just contact petco on the Kitty Holster harness and they said they are speaking to officals right now to see if it will be okay to sell the product.

That's why I like the Premier Gentle Leader Come with Me Kitty Harness & Bungee Leash at PETCO It doesn't go around their neck but their shoulders. So it would tighten on the shoulders instead.
