Ruffwear Cooling Vest: Swamp Cooler


Weekends are coming. Where do your adventures bring you this time? Make sure you stay cool in all your expeditions through the rough, terrains, or otherwise the city!

In hot climates, dogs typically keep cool by seeking shades and moving around cooler temperatures. The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler provides protection from the sun and heat, by cooling through evaporation. 

To activate the Swamp Cooler, simply soak it in water, wring excess water out, and wearing it on the dog. The cooler jacket is designed with light colours to repel solar radiation and evaporative action takes excess heat away from the body, as a result cooling the body.  

The Swamp Cooler is styled with a leash portal for it to be worn over the harness, and this allowing direct leash attachment.
