Colossus K9 Review


We developed a range of Canine harnesses, including designs for the Tornado and Hurricane harnesses – based on feedback from extensive trials conducted by the UK Police Forces and HM Prison Service – enabling us to manufacture a product of superior quality that is suitable for a wide range of users.

The comfort and needs of the working dog have been met, as a priority, as well as the practical requirements of the handler and trainer. The harnesses can be fitted with a selection of inserts which offer an excellent range of protection.

The Tornado and Hurricane multi threat protection armour is now in use with various UK Police Forces and the Hi Viz harnesses are in service with UK Search and Rescue teams.

If you are interested in our Canine products and you want to find out about the options available, please contact us.

Defence Composites Review
Tornado K9 Harness
5/ 5
Just to let you know your K9 stab vests are worth their weight in gold. We had two teenagers who had knives on them, one tried to stab my K9 but was caught in the vest. Both were detained and handed over to the police. Couldn’t have done it without your product.

Amazing quality kit that gives full protection for you and your K9. I use the Tornado K9 harness with stab proof inner for my security dog. Very good and fast service on our order and helped with advise on the products.
