Ruffwear Cooling Dog Vest: Swamp Cooler

Sale price$116.95

When shade is low and the mercury is high, dogs can count on the Swamp Cooler to help get them outside!

Strategic material choices and design offer solutions for the challenges that warm-weather exploring presents. The light-colored fabric reflects solar radiation and provides shading while wetting the vest activates our Swamp Cooler™ Tech for that refreshing, just-stepped-out-of-a-lake feeling also known as evaporative cooling. Just give it a soak, put it on your dog, and go. When it dries, re-soak it to recharge it.

The Swamp Cooler Vest includes side-release buckles for easy on/off and a leash portal so it can be worn over a harness – topping of the essential features to make it our highest-coverage cooling option in the Swamp Cooler™ Collection.

What's New: We updated the external air mesh for improved abrasion resistance and improved water absorption, and we developed a new construction that retains more water in high-exposure zones on the vest for a longer charge.

    The evaporative cooling works, even in Singapore's humidity

    I love both the swamp cooler and vests. I see a remarkable difference in my dogs' stamina when they are wearing them vs when without. I recommended it to my friend who has a boxer. Boxers can overheat quite easily, and she also agrees that there is a visible difference when her dog is wearing the vest.
