The large fits well on my 25kg Kelpie sized dog. The straps are a bit long and get wet so I will just cut them shorter with a hot knife. My dog seemed to really like that it kept her a bit dryer in the rain without keeping her too warm like her other jacket with more coverage around her neck/chest and abdomen. It was a good buy! I only consider my dog to be "medium" and the large is only just big enough, so you may need to order up for some breeds.

This vest was smaller and thinner than I was hoping. The large was not big enough for my dogs (possibly unrealistic on my part--I have a mastiff and a dane mix). Definitely high-vis and might be fine for a normal pooch.

Fits our Norwegian Elkhound (68 lbs) well. we run, hike, cross country ski, and mountain bike with him in it. Works well with the hair. Reluctant to buy on based on the other reviews, but again I think if you have a hairy dog its fine. We ordered a Large which fits well. Very durable material as well.

no matter how much i tightened this jacket, it always ended up on one side of my dog. he is always off leash in the woods and i'm afraid a hunter will shoot the side of him that isn't covered. this may work well if your dog remains on a leash at all times.
This item is not designed for protection, it is made of a light-weight nylon. This item is designed to help increase visibility of the dog.

I returned this vest (because it was smaller and lighter than I thought. It is pretty thin nylon and is clearly more for visibility than protection. Nothing short of a canvas or leather breast plate would help with barbed wire anyway, though. Even if it was the most durable fabric ever, it goes on the dog's shoulders and back, not its chest and throat, which are likely to take the brunt of brambles and fences.
