"Did have to duct tape the leg Velcro closures because the tough dense brush would eventually rip them open. Other than that it held up great ,and it really took a beating from the woods."

By: Scott Berry From OH

Hunts. Family pet.

My dog put this thing through the wringer for a week of really tough grouse hunting terrain. Did have to duct tape the leg Velcro closures because the tough dense brush would eventually rip them open. Other than that it held up great ,and it really took a beating from the woods. Did rub him under the armpit. Tee shirt took care of that.

Hunts.

This is an amazing suit. One note, hand wash it and use Fabric Softener! It then becomes nice and pliable and comfy for dog. This is well worth the money. You can even send it back to the Sylmar company for free alterations.
I have a small 30lb ESS and had to exchange with Sylmar for an XS.

"The vest works well, but is made of really stiff material and therefore rubs my dogs skin and chaffs."

By: John Koepke From MN

Pudelpointer. Hunts. Family pet.

The vest works well, but is made of really stiff material and therefore rubs my dogs skin and chaffs. If I put a Thundershirt underneath it then it does not rub and the dog is more comfortable. I have only washed it once, so it may soften up in time.

Protects the legs and chest,but can rub skin raw. If dog has cuts bandaged, can keep dog from removing them.

"Good product, just did not fit her."

By: Tim Sheehan From SD

Hunts.

It did not fit my very lean lab, and I had to return it. Good product, just did not fit her. Still looking for a solution to protect her front legs from barb wires.

Customer Review #31714

By: Joe Hamel From WI

Hunts.

I like this product a lot! It's a great concept. My dog gets beat to crap grouse and woodcock hunting. This coat keeps him in good shape. The reason I don't give it a better score is because the Velcro cuffs on the legs do not stay when my dog is in the field. I have to duct tape them. Sylmar needs to come up with a better concept to keep the the legs tight.

By: John Thom From WI

Hunts.

Legs were a bit long and slid down over dogs paws, even when Velcro drew tight. My wife cut them a bit shorter and hemmed. The dog is able to move about freely and the vest has provided great protection of forelegs, chest, and belly area while hunting pheasants on CRP ground in Iowa that last year, when the dog was unprotected resulted in hair loss and raw, bleeding skin.

Customer Review #6060

By: Don Sant From CO

German Short Hair.

I have a German Shorthair we hunt pheasant with. This season she got cut up pretty bad from the corn stalks, so bad in fact we had to cut the hunt short and get her stitched up. I later purchased the Canine Body Suit, GREAT IN CONCEPT, because it would protect her legs and tummy. However, when we put it the dog it was too restrictive and reduced her range of motion. She would just stand there and sulk. Don't give up on this design, it is precisely the protection I need for my dog, but find a material that offers protection, prevents over heating, and permits a full range of motion. Keep up the good work. I did purchase the Sylmar protective vest without the leg coverage and it works just fine - but I would still like to find a way to cover a portion of her front legs that always get cut up after every hunt.

Gives your dog additional protection, added warmth, and increased visibility at a distance and in cover. Constructed of tough fluorescent orange cordura nylon.

We recommend a break in period for the Front Body Suit before extended use. The more use the Front Body Suit receives the softer it will become, yet it will maintain its toughness and durability because of the rip stop material. Hand washing will also help to soften the material. Made in the USA.

Medium -- 31" - 34" (approx. 40-60 lbs.)

X-Large -- 37" - 42" (approx. 75-90 lbs.)
