Full Coverage Cooling Vest for Dogs

Outfit your dog in the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler and let the cooling begin! On a warm sunny day, dogs will trot for the shade, lie down, and pant the heat away. They need an air-conditioner like the Swamp Cooler to stay cool, happy and active.

The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler provides protection from the sun and cooling through evaporation.

Your dog can beat the heat, staying cool while running, playing on the beach, boating on open water,or waiting for their turn during outdoor agility trials in the heat.

The light-colored fabric reflects solar radiation, while evaporative cooling pulls heat from the dog. The integrated leash portal allows leash attachment when the Swamp Cooler is worn over the Ruffwear Front Range or Web Master Harnesses.

The summers can be brutal here in Australia. Despite the heat our dogs require exercise for their health and for their sanity. Not all breeds are cut out for this climate. The Swamp Cooler is great for breeds who have difficulty in the heat. It's also fabulous for sporty dogs who are going to play despite the heat.

How to use it

Just soak the coat completely with cold water. Wring out the excess. Silde your dog's head through the neck hole and fasten the buckles at the rib cage. And off you go! It's simple and straight forward. The Swamp Cooler will keep your dog cool for several hours (depending on how hot it is) and then you can renew the evaporative power wherever you can find water.

  • Leash portal on back for attaching to Ruffwear Front Range or Web Master Harnesses
  • Side-release buckles for easy on/off
  • Low-light visibility with reflective trim and light loop for attaching the Ruffwear Beacon

This is a fantastic product! The vest fitted perfectly - I used their guidelines but I was a bit worried it still might not fit, as my dog is a greyhound, his body is a rather unusual shape (long body, skinny but deep chested). Adjustable straps are easy to use. The cool relief he felt from wearing the vest was obvious as he usually really suffers in the heat. It was also easy to top up the water just by a quick squirt of my water bottle. Very pleased all round. Jem , Bassendean WA

Hi Zoe. Just a quick update, the Swamp vest we bought for Hine` Iti has been the most marvelous investment out, this is the 3rd year of use and she has had no overheating issues this summer thanks to the vest.

We now have a second oddball jr terrier cross and will be looking at vests and coats for him in the near future.

Very impressed with the Swamp Cooler, great fit for my 16month malinois and so easy to use. Apart from using it for everyday use and whilst training it will be great to use at Dog Seminars too when the weather is way too warm. The added advantage of being able to use a harness underneath and clip on the lead through the slit on the top of the coat is a plus as I use a harness on my mal. Joy, Cameron Park NSW

I have to admit that I was skeptical about this jacket, but I gave it a go because there's no slowing down my Weimaraners, even in the heat.
WOW, I am amazed at how cool it is under the jacket. It really works. We can go out in the heat and when we get back inside they aren't panting in exhaustion... At all.
I also like that it keeps the sun off their skin. All doggies should have these for summer.

I am very happy with this purchase. The XS size fits my 5kg dog well and he can comfortably run and jump. Still waiting for some hot weather to test the cooling so 4 stars at this stage for quality of the fabric and the fit. Susan , Canberra ACT

I purchased this to cool my dog while competing in obedience trials and to cool between runs at agility. It fits really well and is very good quality.

Perfect for warmer weather! My little girl is black and gets hot pretty quick. I brought this little jacket to a photo shoot and used some water to wet it and she felt better straight away. Easy to put on and small to pack away.
