What's the verdict?

Ruffwear have once again brought out yet a better version of their landmark life vest! It's gotta be the best on the worldwide market. Of course this does come at a price. This jacket is great. However if you won't be using the jacket a lot then my follow up choice would be the EzyDog DFD X2 Boost, EzyDog's newest release. It has a telescoping neck, a streamlined cut and reflective piping.
