I bought this product for our Black Lab. It fit him perfectly and it does the job of preventing him from getting scrapes and abrasions from brush when we have him out in the fields. I would recommend this item to anyone who has a hunting or active dog. Best vest by far.

Bought this for our 3 year old Weimaraner (about 80 pounds) for pheasant hunting in S.D. He had a run in with a barb wire fence last year and cut his chest up a bit (though he seemed to figure it out this year) so hoping this Chest Protector will help avoid any future cuts and scrapes. He has worn it twice already while just out for a hike in the woods. He doesn't seem to mind it at all. It fits him snugly almost like I'd think a Thunder jacket would except around the neck. A few inches too big but as he has really short fur, I can see where a dog with longer fur would need the extra space around the neck. The Velcro is great, stays flat on his back, and doesn't bunch up. Husband wasn't happy when I bought it online (as we have tried others without success; too tubular and not contoured at the waist for a streamline fit) but now hubby says "I am surprised how well it fits his body. Order a few more!"

Wrap around neoprene vest not a true chest protector-- no hard surface belly. Fit finish good so 4 stars as vest. 4-5 mm vests are stiff and hamper leg movement unless fit just right. This softer so more ease of movement trade off.

Bought this for my 44lb Staffordshire Bull, it fits everywhere except the neck, way too big...about three inches too big. She also doesn't like it, trying to bite it off. Will take her hiking in the mountains soon and see how she accept it even if big in the neck. Guess it will only fit well if your dog is the same as the model in the picture. However, only paid six dollars for it so will keep it and see how it goes.

I am surprised that the vest is as good as it is for the price. I will say that it shows a Shorthair in the advertisement and it is not really made to fit the shape of a Shorthair. I will need to do a bit of alteration on the vest for a "Safe" fit as there are some gaps that could get caught on brush or debris in the water. I got it too late to use here in Maine, but I think that it is a decent product for the price. I believe it would fit a more stocky and sausage like dog as the Shorthairs have a big chest, small waist, and small neck.
