  • We recommend utilizing girth measurements over weight when selecting vest sizes.   While weight is sufficient in most cases, girth measurements tend to be the most accurate.  The illustration below will show you where to measure.    
  • NOTICE for Overlap Sizing-  If you have a dog that falls in between on sizing our general recommendation is for wider chested dogs to go up a size and slender built dogs go down a size.
  • These are the typical sizing guidelines.  99% of dogs will fit into these standard sizes, however some dogs do have unique structures and may need a custom fit.  If your dog does not fit into any sizes outlined below, please send us the measurements described at the bottom of the page and we will make a custom vest for you.

    Always amazing

    Best vest on the market!!

    We are on our 2nd armored dog vest. Nothing wrong with the first one other than too many rolls in cow pies. The vest has saved my dog on numerous occasions from being gored even though that is not what it is designed for. The Reflective patches are bright and easy to see at night and the blaze orange stands out perfectly during the day

    Good Stuff!!

    I’m a big fan of these vest. Vibrant color and seems comfortable to the dog!

    Great Tracking Vest

    Your vest was recommended to me by other trackers in our network and I was not disappointed. Love the ability to add Kevlar after a run in with a not so happy wounded buck last year and color options along with reflective strip make this vest one you do not want to be without.

    Great product!

    I’ve used this vest for a full deer season and it is tough! We track deer through thorn thickets, briars, through barb wire fence and this added layer of protection gives me some piece of mind as well as the reflective strips really making him visible during night time track. I just ordered a second one for a new dog I’m adding to me team.
