We have a black Whippet and in summer, he gets very hot due to the sun out here in the southwest. I tried the vest and it's making a huge difference in his comfort level on afternoon walks.

  • Well made, tricky sizing
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by GGNYC from NYC on Monday, October 15, 2018
    It's too cold out to test this now but I wanted to make a note on the sizing. These don't run like the rest of the ruffwear sizing. I have a 45lb mixed dog that is about the length of a beagle and the S fit well. The M was a good length for our Setter mix. The length is the tricky part with these, if most of the back of the dog isn't covered they won't work well. Will try to update when the weather gets hot again. Seems nicely put together though.
  • Works great!

    I got this for my 90lb plush coated GSD. There is a noticeable difference in my dogs temperature under the wetted vest vs his head and rump where the vest doesn't provide coverage. It fits him well and I like that the buckles are tucked up inside of the vest where his coat doesn't get snagged or tangled up in them. I wish it was a bit longer to cover more of his hind-quarter, see photos for coverage. Overall, the quality seems good, no rips, tears, or frays in our first couple of outings, and my dog shows no discomfort while wearing it and running and playing.

    We have a black Whippet and in summer, he gets very hot due to the sun out here in the southwest. I tried the vest and it's making a huge difference in his comfort level on afternoon walks. Wet him and it down, pop it on (very easy to do) and we can go a good hour or more in the late afternoon sun and he's a happy pup! I followed the measuring instructions and the vest fits perfectly which isn't easy on the odd build of a Whippet. I will likely get two more (we have three Whippets) even for the much lighter color coating of these dogs. I can see how the black dog with the vest on appears cooler and more comfortable than the others who don't have a vest. Product seems to be high quality, washed it once, it came out great.

  • “Where do you put the water for evaporation, how much does it hold and how long does it last. We are in Tahoe so we have a relatively low web bulb temperature. ”

  • “Is this product waterproof ”
    Asked by Bean from Colorado on 6/6/2018 8:15:48 AM
    • This item is not listed as waterproof.

    • It is meant to absorb water to provide an evaporative cooling effect (why you are chilly when you get out of the pool on a cool day or when you get out of the shower). It is meant to absorb water so that it cools the dog as a breeze blows over the dog. Even the smallest breeze will work. May not work as well in VERY HUMID climates.
