Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Dog Vest - The Swamp Cooler Dog Vest by Ruffwear will help your dog beat the heat. This innovative cooling vest is so easy to use. Just soak it in cold water, wring it out, and fasten around your dog. Evaporative cooling (like an actual swamp cooler) exchanges the dog's heat with the coolness of the stored water in the coat to keep them comfortable and ready to run that extra mile. The three-layer construction maximizes the cooling effect. The wicking outer layer facilitates evaporation, the absorbent middle layer stores water for evaporation, while the comfortable inner layer transfers cooling effect to the dog. The Swamp Cooler has an active fit for full range of motion and the side-release buckles provide for an easy on and off. Reflective trim for low-light situations and a loop for attaching The Beacon (not included) finish off this great vest. When the going gets hot keep Max cool with the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Dog Vest.

Your dog will appreciate the cooling effect of the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Dog Vest during hot hikes. Just soak this vest with water, secure around your dog, and as the water evaporates away from the three-layer material, the cooling effect of the evaporation will help your pooch beat the heat. And for dogs with dark-colored fur, the light color of the Swamp Cooler will be particularly helpful when the sun is beating down.


The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Vest is a cooling vest so your dog can go for hikes and runs with you in warmer temperatures. The vest not only reflects heat by using a light color, but all you need to do is soak it in water, wring it out, then put it on your favorite dog. Ok, maybe you should put it on your dog, not a random dog. But once your pup is sporting this vest, hot days will be much cooler as you head to the trails, run the neighborhood, or just have fun at the park.

The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler provides protection from the sun and cooling through evaporation. In warm climates dogs typically stay cool by seeking shade during the heat of the day and moving around in cooler temperatures. The Swamp Cooler allows dogs to perform in hot climates. To activate the Swamp Cooler soak in water wring out and place on your dog. The light-colored fabric reflects solar radiation while evaporative cooling pulls heat from the dog.
