When panting is just not enough to cool off your dog, look to the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Dog Vest. The evaporative cooling process keeps your pup cool so you can both enjoy hiking in the warm months.

  • Features an evaporative cooling process: simply soak the vest with water, wring it out, strap it on and heat is dissipated as the water evaporates
  • Wicking mesh layer on top facilitates evaporation and releases heat, middle layer absorbs and stores cooling water, and bottom layer transfers the cool to your dog
  • Light-colored fabric reflects sunlight and heat to increase cooling efficiency
  • Ergonomic cut wraps back and chest to offer a comfortable fit that stays in place; quick-release buckles allow an adjustable fit and easy on/off convenience
  • Attachment loop situated between dog's shoulder blades offers a clip point for a beacon light (not included); reflective trim enhances visibility in low light
  • Closeout

Sizing is based on girth. For girth, measure around the widest part of your dog's rib cage.

Rated3out of5byfromSwamp Cooler VestsI had great hopes for this product. It lasts for about 15-20 minutes on a hot day. Anyone standing next to it felt cooler. Wish it lasted longer. I recommended it to friends....bring a water bottle to keep it wet. Put water on top as well as underneath when refreshing it.
