Keep your dog's body as cool as his personality with the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Cooling Vest.

The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Cooling Vest is specially designed with a patented three layer construction. The wicking outer layer facilitates evaporation; the absorbent middle layer stores water for evaporation; and the comfy inner layer transfers the cooling effect onto your dog. All three combine for maximum cooling through evaporation and heat reflection.

Made with quality stitching, the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Cooling Vest is designed with an active fit to allow for a full range of motion. The side release buckles allow for easy on & off and the reflective trim and loop for the Ruffwear Beacon let you easily transition those hot summer evenings into summer nights.

LOVE this product

By dog lover

Comments about Ruff Wear Ruffwear Swamp Cooler:

I bought this product YEARS ago for my cattle dog. We run agility outdoors and she runs hot. This keeps her very cool. Then we took our brittanys to Nebraska to go hunting in the sand hills. It was 90 degrees and no shade. I had brought these with me. My husband was skeptical, but when I put them on the dogs, then felt underneath, you could feel the difference and he was sold on this. I am looking to purchase another one for my newest agility dog.

      Comments about Ruff Wear Ruffwear Swamp Cooler:

      I just unpacked the swamp cooler and tried it on my dog. It is easy to adjust and put on. Unfortunately, I waited until the really hot part of summer had passed before I opted to buy this, but Nikki will be all set for next summer. But I just I had to write to say how extraordinarily well designed and made this garment is...it is truly a work of art. Kudos to the manufacturer. I could use a human version to keep me coo, also!

        Comments about Ruff Wear Ruffwear Swamp Cooler:

        I have a very active 6 yr old blue heeler. She loves to go go go but in the summer gets very hot. I decided to try this after reading other reviews. I LOVE it and so does she!
        I took it to her doggie daycare and they said she'd get excited when they went to put it on & they noticed she was able to play longer.
        Our biggest test was at our family reunion. We went on a hike that started out cool in the morning but I knew coming back would be a scorcher! I soaked it in the river and put it on without wringing it out. About halfway back she was doing well but I went ahead and poured on a bottle of water as the back had dried considerably. By the time we got back to our truck she was panting some but was not in any distress! She was happy and bouncing around with plenty of energy!
        The cooler cleans easily, fits well and my dog seems comfortable wearing it....it doesn't slow her down at all!

          Comments about Ruff Wear Ruffwear Swamp Cooler:

          My Boxer/Dalmatian mix is very high energy and requires lots of exercise and challenging training. I, on the other hand, do not. But I've had to get up and out with her by 5:am all summer so we could return home as the sun crested the hills. Once the sun hits her dark brindle coat, she's toast (or will be if I keep her out). My husband is extremely sensitive to heat, also, due to an illness. His cooling vest allows him to be outside in hot weather, and now finally the dog has one, too! I can finally get some sleep and still give the dog the exercise and training she wants. The sizing chart for the Ruff Wear Climate Changer Jacket was useful in figuring out the right size cooling vest to get for her. It fits perfectly. It might look odd to the rest of the world to see a dog wearing a "coat" in hot weather, but I don't really care what they think. I know what it is and how it's helping.

                I bought this last summer for my rescued Australian Shepherd. We run 4-5 miles each morning, and the heat was really getting to her, especially with her thick coat. People look at me like I'm crazy putting a "coat" on my dog in our hot, humid, beach summers! But she is much happier. I notice that her gums and tongue do not get nearly as red, a sign that she is getting too hot. Although she still pants alot, she is working hard! I now have my son's rescued mixed german shepherd who runs with us. Although she has a shorter, thinner coat, she is black and will need a swamp cooler too! I plan on ordering one today!

                My JRT just loves his Swamp Cooler. With the extremely hot weather we have been having lately (over 100 degrees) it has been a blessing. The vest allows my boy to be outside with me and still enjoy running around.

                  If you've got a dog that loves being active and doesn't slow down in extremely hot weather, this cooling vest is for you! Er, not you, your dog. Our bloodhound doesn't mind wearing it at all, and it cools him down considerably. The only drawbacks, which can't be helped, are that it's white, so it shows dirt instantly. Of course, if it weren't white, it wouldn't work as effectively. It also makes your dog look like he's in a straitjacket, which is a pro if you like laughing at your dog. :)

                    Great product! Kind of dries out quick but we're in the arid desert. I was so worried about how I was going to get Toby exercise during our outrageously hot summers. This does the trick! it puts the spring back in his step and the clown in him returns, otherwise a walk was torture. It also is great protection from the hot sun hitting his back. Couldn't be happier with this product. Note; it does have kind of a baggy fit.

                      Judgement turned into education! Everyone I pass on the trail is giving me a look like, really a vest in 90 degree weather but politely asking "So whats the story with the vest?" Once I tell them its a swamp cooler & reflects sunlight b/c of the color they are ready to go order one. My black 1 year old went on strike everytime he found shade- not anymore- he's running ahead of me the whole time! It dries out after about an hour in dry Colorado heat, but I send him into the water to re-wet it & off we go again. I agree this runs big. A medium cloud chaser from this brand is too small for my dog, but the medium in this is almost a bit big, so do not base your sizing on other products from this brand. My boy also layed in the mud; I washed it 2 days later & it came perfectly clean. I wish every dog I see panting on the trail could have one!Oh wait- they can!
