What is Cut Gear?

Cut Gear is a term for Protective Vests and Collars for hunting dogs, most commonly Kevlar Hog Dog Vests and Collars.  Cut gear is designed to protect dogs from wild boar and decrease the likelihood of a serious or fatal injury.   Southern Cross Cut Gear offers multiple style vests and collars to meet various needs.  Catch Dog Vests are designed to offer the highest level of protection for dogs likely to come in frequent direct contact with wild boar.  Strike and Bay Dog Vests are designed to offer light weight and flexible protection without inhibiting movement.  Cut Collars are designed to protect one of the most vulnerable areas on a dog with several styles that are compatible and will also protect tracking collars.  Attached Collar vests are available for ease of use and an even higher level of protection.  Custom gear can be built to meet exact specifications such as color and fit.  Add ons such as Leg Guards, Chin Guards, Extra Kevlar and Flotation can be selected as well.  Cut Gear is truly a vital piece of equipment for any hunting dog in the field.
