Rated 4 out of 5 by QwltrActnt Sturdy product
The 32 in. vest fits my 45 lb. Dalmatian to a T, but I'll be sewing more reflective tape on the back and sides of the vest for added visibility on our early morning and evening walks. The double-Velcro-strapping underneath takes a little getting used to to close the vest, but the fit is perfect for the chest of our petite Dalmatian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 12345abcdef Comfortable, great quality material, excellent fit
I looked around at several stores for a heavy duty vest for my dog for when we walk in the woods especially during hunting season. I chose this vest because LL Bean is noted for good quality. I could not be happier. I called LL Bean Customer Service to make sure I was measuring my dog correctly and they emailed a chart. Using this as a guide, I measured around her chest and ordered the recommended size. It fits perfectly. The vest is great quality, nice bright color and excellent fit. She is very active and the vest appears comfortable and does not move around even when she is running through the woods. It is just what I wanted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by K750 way too big
have a 80 Lab and ordered a 38 based on site info., too big, returned it for a 36, still too big. after messing around for two weeks I give up. also some think the double velcro thingy is nice but be forewarned, what it does is limit your adjustment, I might have been able to use vest if it wasn't for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by superlube Great for Quail Hunting
This is my second vest purchase. So I must think they are good!
I use them on my dog when quail hunting and the hunter orange, 10 Mile cloth, makes him really stand out.
One suggestion: the velcro connection would be better if the center tab were the soft "loop" in stead of the rough "hook". This would allow for an expanded girth without exposing the rough "hook" of the velcro to the dogs underside.
Ii is easy to cut the stiching and restitch as above.

Rated 5 out of 5 by twogoldens Effective and serves its purpose.
Bought the 34 in. size for my 60 lb. golden retriever - although according to the chest size range she could squeeze into a 32 in., I wisely sized up. Fits her perfectly. Bought the 32 in. size for my 52 lb. golden - a little loose on him. Both dogs' fur coats blend in with the fall leaves and I feel much safer when they're wearing their vests in the fall/winter. Easy on/off and the vests resist dirt and water. Very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by islandogs Great fit Dogs like it
This is a wonderful vest. I have a 45 pound australian shepard and and a 50 pound pointer mix, I got them each a 34" the pointer could maybe fit into a 32" as its a bit roomy on him but not so much that it bothers him.
This vest is made very well and washes and drys great too.
I recommend this vest highly. I will use it year round for my aussi that is camoflaug color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHhikingenthusiast Well designed
I have an active dog that I walk during hunting season. This vest has a sturdy fabric, well designed to get on and off easily with velcro and shows up really well, and fits well. It also looks attractive. I'm happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jimdurkin good product
Bought two of these vests. One for our 65 lb. griffon and one for our 70 lb. labradoodle.The sizing on these vests was accurate as advertised. Just do the chest measurements. The vests do not ride up or shift from side to side. So my advise to you is spend the extra 20 dollars and get a quality product.You will not be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Springermom1 Great vest....a little too big
I bought this for my 38 pound Springer, got the smallest size. It is a great, sturdy vest, but too big for her. Fortunately, I sew, and was able to shorten the straps. Would not recommend this for a dog under 40-45 pounds, it is just too loose.
