Cherokee always had a sensitive trachea, but she would just cough if anything hit her neck. She had a Ruffwear Webmaster harness, which worked pretty well after I shortened the chest strap (the one that goes in between the front legs).
Alpine Outfitters' Urban Trail harness
is totally custom, that was my next choice if the Webmaster didn't work for Cherokee. I was just gonna order it with a nice short chest strap (is there a better name for that I'm not thinking of?), which I find is usually the reason the harness chokes, that strap is too long. If it's shorter, it pulls the straps that go across the neck down to the breastbone.
Could also do a front-clip harness. That puts no pressure on the neck, and very little on the chest.
