Which one?

Well, contray to all family traditions, my gran gave me money for my birthday so I've now got enough for virtually any type of harness for Echo, which is something I really want as I spend a lot of time outside and feel so bad locking Echo up every time I go outside to work (I live on a farm). Mum really wants me to get a flight suit so he's not pooping everywhere as apparently it stains (it doesn't, but she won't believe me LOL), but I'm pretty good at sewing, so I think I could make a decent one that could be tailored to fit Echo and if it's only used inside when he doesn't need to be controlled, just where Mum doesn't want him pooping (ie hanging out watching TV with me and playing on the carpet etc), the problems of it not being secure aren't there.

So I'm also looking at harnesses and on my list of possibilities are

The Aviator Harness, $49.95+$5.20 postage

The Jazzy bird harness $14+$1.50 postage

Bird Harness $14+$9.25 postage

Flightsuit $24.60+$5.90 postage

I'm leaning towards the aviator harness, as it looks really safe and easy to put on, but not too sure on my skills at making a flight suit LOL, and don't ave the money for both.

After researching it for my babies, I also decided on the aviator harness too. I haven't gotten it yet, but it's by far the most comfortable and safe for them.
I don't think he's feel very comfortable wearing the suit inside...if it's only a poop issue do what I do and cut little pieces of papertowel and keep them with you. As soon as he poops, clean it up.
He should enjoy the ride. Mine love to go on trips although they have to stay in their travel cage. Make sure to carry some water for him and some food just in case.
Sound like it was alot of fun. It's great for their minds to take them out and have them explore. Ofcourse, they're super tired by the time they get home. Mine always go right to napping as soon as we get in.
