What keeps it cold? Water evaporation or chemical reaction? And what size for an 80!lb Olde English Bulldogge
Answer by ChewyJun 08, 2021
There are no chemicals whatsoever. There is a thin layer of resin, in between the two layers of PVA. When this is wet the resin is what cools the vest down. Once the water evaporates, simply re-wet and use. To find the best fit we recommend measuring your pet and comparing the measurements to the sizing chart that is available in the “Size” tab, next to the “Description” tab, just under the product. If your pet falls somewhere between two sizes, we advise ordering the larger of the two.

How long does the vest stay cool? I’ve seen other cooling vests that you have to wet first and they usually only stay cool for about 20min on really hot days.
Answer by ChewyJun 08, 2021
It all depends on the external temperature and the sun. It ranges from 4-6 hours. Once the vest starts to dry, simply re-wet for another 4-6 hours of cooling sensation.

Can this vest be reactivated with salt water instead of regular water? And is it okay if my dog went swimming in salt water with this vest on, would it ruin the vest?
Answer by ChewyAug 05, 2021
A pet may swim in the ocean or salt water pool with this vest on but the manufacturer recommends to wash it with mild dish soap and regular water before letting it dry. The salt, if left on the material, may ruin the PVA fabric.

what is the neck size on the medium
Answer by ChewyMay 17, 2022
The Elasto-fit Ice Vest does not require a neck measurement for sizing, only the girth and length measurements are needed.

A must for working dogs

I purchased this cooling vest for my Labrador guide dog. The humidity bothers her more than the heat. The vest is extremely easy to use and put on her. simply run the material under cool water ring it out and it is ready for use. The Velcro sides are easy to adjust and hold secure. The material is thin enough to fit nicely under her guide dog harness. as we are out walking the water evaporates from the vest helping to keep her cool. I have noticed since she is wearing the vest she can work much longer in the heat and humidity versus not wearing the vest. after wearing the vest I simply hang it up to dry and it is ready for the next day and our adventure together.

Didn't work for me

This didn't work too well for my dog. It didn't feel significantly cool, and that lasted only about 30 minutes. I wonder why so many people raved about it. My dog has a lot of fur. Maybe it works for shorthaired? Also, I didn't like how it had to fit under a harness, so I'd have to "undress" the dog to take it off. I would want to take off the cooling vest easily, once it looses effectiveness.

Love this cooling vest....except it doesn't clean well

Love this cooling vest for my Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. She is 14+ years and has a hard time regulating her temperature as she ages. Although she has never been a fan of the heat. This vest cools her right down and she is completely content the problem is when I tried to clean it the blue faded a lot and it still looked dirty. I don't know if it has lost it's effectiveness but I'm disappointed it didn't hold up.

Does the Trick!

My part Chihuahua / part Dachshund doesn't like to put it on, but wears it just fine knowing that she is going for a walk! In our Florida sun and she is solid black, I needed something to keep her safe for her around the block walks. At 9am, it can be 86 degrees, so now I don't worry about her over heating. I also found that when she is in her dog stroller with it on, she is more calm and just sits rather that moving all around. It's a keeper!

Gracie furmama

Today was the first time my girl wore this. We are in Florida and it is like a hot desert here right now. She is elderly so very sensitive to the heat. I can’t tell if it is keeping her cool. She still pants and has to stop for a few minutes several times. I have a cooling towel for her that works really great, but i have to pin it on her. This vest fits her just right. I really like it, but it has to keep her cool. We’ll see.

Dogs love their cooling vests

I got the GF cooling vests for my dogs as the hot, humid Florida summer is a little much for them. I got a small for my 13 lb Shih Tzu and a large for my 28 lb Border Collie and they are perfect. Now they enjoy their walks and my little guy isn’t ready to quit in 5 minutes. We only walk for about 30 minutes but the vests stay ice cold.

Maggie approved

We got this for my shih tzu to help keep her cool during the summer. It’s not as cold when wet as I was expecting, but I toss it in the freezer for a couple of minutes to cool it down more. Her back/chest that are covered are always cooler to the touch than the rest of her body after she wears it while she’s laying out in the sun.

So worth it!!

Our pittie mix hates the heat. We were using wet washcloths & bandanas and then found this. Immediately put it on her in this heat wave and I would recommend for sure. Measure carefully, for reference she’s about 40 lbs and we got an extra large

Works great!

We have two senior huskies in Texas who enjoy nature watching and sun bathing. These vests make a noticeable difference during the summer. It takes them less time to cool down after potty breaks and their fur is nice and chilly underneath when I take them off. Perfect!

100% recommend, buy it asap

My two pugs have tried a few different aqua vest / cool vest options throughout the years and I have to say this is the best thing ever. Not only is the material perfect for its purpose, but the material also cools down asap without water and just A/C or putting it in the fridge for 2 minutes before putting it on. Absolutely love it and would buy it again.
