Rated 5 out of 5 by lurcherlady well worth the price
We ordered one of these vests a few years ago after our 85 lb. deer-colored lurcher wore out two others from other companies. He went through both in one year. Bean's vest is anything but flimsy, and we wouldn't need another but for many washings and Georgia sunshine have faded the blaze orange to "melon." Deer season is long and the deer are very small here so this vest was a must to protect Merlin from "buck fever." The sturdy construction stood up well to thorny underbrush and even his brother's attempts to shred it. This is vest is everything the description says it is and more. No problem with sizing or fit. Great!

Our 49 lb. English Setter wears one of these every day when she takes her morning and evening walks (well...runs, never walks). We need this vest in order to see her as she can range 100+ yards in an instant. She rams through heavy brush and some tough thickets and briar patches and the coat has held up quite well. She also routinely dives into water with the vest on. (We live on a golf course) I'm ordering her third one today. She goes through one per year only because the velcro gets a little ratty over a year of washing. Our neighbors bought one for their 99 lb. lab mix and the two of them are a matched pair.

I was thrilled with the quality of this vest. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in a smaller size. I knew when I ordered it that it would be too large for my dog, so I just sewed a seam up the back of it to make it tighter. Please make some in smaller sizes, as not everyone has a large dog. It was so great to get something from LL Bean that was made in the U.S.A. Please offer us more things made in the U.S.A. My favorite thing about it, other than the quality, was the piece that goes around the neck. This should insure that it can't get pulled off the dog.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rathoughbyoutside Too big, had to return.
The smallest size (32), was too big for my border collie/aussie mix, he's 40 lbs. I had to return it. Seems to be good quality though, and made in the USA. Smaller sizes would be helpful.

We wanted a good vest for our golden retriever to wear during hunting season. I went back and forth between the size 32 and 34. The picture from agiledoglover review helped a lot. I have a 65 lb golden retriever, her measurement was 29 1/2" so she fell in the range of the 32 and 34. I am happy I decided on the 34, it fits well, and it doesn't bother her when she wears it. The vest is nice and bright, and is well made. I had to order it through the Freeport store because online is out of stock, but still got free shipping

Rated 4 out of 5 by WrongSizeVest Careful of Sizing
Product arrived and looked durable. Unfortunately, the sizing online was very confusing. We ordered a size 32" because that is my dog's heart girth, but a size 32" is actually for a 28" to 31" dog. My lab actually needed 2 sizes bigger. The packaging makes this clear, but buyer beware of the website and sizing chart.

My dog comes to work on a construction site everyday with me. His jacket is just what I needed perfect fit and he doesn't mind wearing it. He is highly visible to all the workers and makes him safe on the job. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lpolk Good quality safety vest
I bought this for my dog to wear during hunting season and it's very visible. It fits my 90 pound dog comfortably. A good quality vest at a reasonable price. It seems to be holding up well so far. It's nice that it's machine washable.

I live in the woods near hunting grounds, and I feel like my dogs are safer wearing these vests. They are sturdy and won't fall off, which is great for my dogs who like to rough and tumble in the woods. The one thing I'd like to complain about is the sizing. I have a 70 pound doodle that I measured, and I ordered a 34. It fit perfectly. But the 32 is a bit snug on my 55-pound doodle. She can wear it, but I wish I had gotten a 34. I would have sent it back, but I couldn't because I was in the middle of hunting season, and they need them when they are in the yard. So be prepared to return your vests if you get the wrong size. . .or order up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by muktowngal Great fit, high visibility!
We wanted the flame orange vest for our dogs to wear in hunting season. We walk them in a heavily wooded area and did want to take the chance of them being mistaken for a deer. The vest are true to size, and give adequate room for adjustments and fit with the velcro tabs at the belly. Nice wide straps, and the velcro belly enclosure is enclosed so hair and debris don't get caught in it. The vest are trimmed with light fluorescent strips for better visibility.
