Rated 1 out of 5áby horselover56 Sizing disappointing.
Got as a gift and will be returning. Very disappointed that LLBean does not offer this in a size that would fit a beagle sized dog.
Not all of us have large dogs and it would be nice if these were offered for smaller to medium sized dogs. Beagles are certainly hunting dogs too!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LUVmyweim Very Pleased
After wasting my money on 4 other vendor dog vests I decided to give LL Bean safety vests a try. I am very pleased with the safety vest from LL Bean. It is quality made, fits the dogs well and holds up to the vigors of daily field work and hikes. I used a string to measure my dogs chests. Following the recommendations from other posts I ordered the next larger size. Wrong. I had to send them back and order the size my string measurement indicated. I have a 85 lbs Weimar and a 65 lbs Red Husky. BTW, they look good and when they see me get the vest know we are headed out for some fun.

This vest was sized perfectly for our German Shepherd and Lab. It's durable, comfortable and very easy to put on and take off. It's wonderful for keeping our dogs safe from hunters when we walk through our woods. Very high quality!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nana8809 Second Vest for a Very Busy Labrador Retriever!
Annie wore out the first one out running and retrieving, and we are very happy to have received her second one. It is easy on, easy off, and well made. Would definitely recommend!

áby Megmcmuf Love the vest!
I ordered the smallest vest and it fits perfectly on our pup. She loves to run and chase, this vest is so visible, I can see her from far away. Her breed is meant to be far away from their owner so this vest gives me peace of mind. We also have a tracker attached to her collar but never had the need to really use it since I can see her from far way with this vest. Plus we have gotten compliments on how smart looking the vest is. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. In the photo the vest looks lighter than it does in the reflection in the water but it is true to color in the catalogue photo.

I bought the 38" orange safety vest for my standard size male doberman. Stays in place, made of quality material. More than satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PauleyBoy Just what I was looking for
We have a 7 month old lab puppy who is 41 pounds and growing. I measured the chest area 2 inches behind the front legs as recommended by the video mentioned in the Q&A section. She measured 26 inches, so I purchased the smallest one. Not surprisingly, it is a bit big at this time but definitely still wearable. We expect her to grow into it in the coming months. The orange in the vest reflects nicely at night as does the reflective strip when vehicles pass on the street. It is also washable which means it can get wet if it is raining. Interestingly, the package suggested that this size could be worn by beagles. While I am sure that there are some beagles with a sizable girth, I cannot imagine too many smaller dogs wearing the 32" size. I definitely recommend measuring your dog before selecting a size rather than using the recommended sizing for various dogs on the packaging. For instance, the packaging recommends a 38" or 42" vest for labs. That size will be way too big for even some adult labs (depending on their mix). Spare yourself the disappointment later by measuring for the correct size before ordering. This is a very nice vest and made in the U.S.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JEKElla More sizes needed
The product was made extremely well. Color makes it a great safety item to have for your pet, for multiple uses not just hunting. can be used for dawn or dusk running with your pet, hiking just about anything outdoors.
However, I ended up returning this item because of fit, you offer a 38 inch and a 42 inch. the 38 inch fit my dog from around the back to the stomach and the 42 inch fit her around the neck. If I would have kept the one that fit her around the neck she could have become entangled around the stomach, she runs in the woods quite a bit. I wish there was one she could wear, this is exactly the safety tool we are looking for.

The vest works great - all I would say is that the smallest size is still a little big on my dog, but I'm sure he'll grow into it. He seems to enjoy wearing it, and knows he's going romping in the woods when we put it on him! It is also good for taking him down the street as he's smallish, black, and difficult to see. The vest solves any issues with that.. A great purchase, would definitely recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Keepermom Perfect for a lively GSP
Unlike my experience with other dog vests, the velcro fasteners are solid (and so far, fail-proof) for a lively dog who runs through the woods. Orange color makes visibility great, and the vest is sturdily constructed.
