I thought this would be useful for keeping track of a dog in the woods. Less than 5 minutes in, one of the nylon straps was unravelling. I was able to tie it around the dog's waist, but a few minutes later, it was just gone.
This would probably be great for city folk who like to dress their dogs up for a nightly stroll, but if you let your dog run, he'll ruin this quick.

This vest is perfect for my 70 lb golden retriever. She is very active and loves to roll around in the snow and grass. This vest stays put and is lightweight and doesn't restrict her movement in any way. Easy to put on and take off as well. Perfect choice at a great price!
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.
