Rated 5 out of 5 by Legenthi Nice quality and fit
This is a well made item with durable fabric that wears nicely. I have a shepherd mix and had to go up one size from the recommendation on the sizing chart, It is fairly easy to put on a wiggling dog and appears to be comfortable once on. The reflective chest strap makes it great for those that walk along the road.

For our 90lb german shepherd puppy, I bought the 42 " size. It fits well over his head and my wife did a temporary shortening of the belly strap. He will fill out, and it should still fit. The vest shows lots of orange and he does not mind wearing it. The white reflective stripe is amazingly bright, as if it was battery-powered.

My dog SOPHIE loves her new vest. We can now see her everywhere, night or day because of the bright color Vest is true to size, she is a Bernice Mountain Dog, 95 lbs. Had to return first one too small, but never a problem returning at LLbean.
She rides around in a golf cart and the neighbors love her new look...

Simple, excellent design, very bright orange, great for protecting my beloved buddy during hunting season or dog-walking on roadways. While the smallest size is too large for my sheltie, and I WILL go to the trouble to make adjustments for it to work, I'd be happier if one were available in his 25-lb. size. Also, I want reflective material on his back, not just the strap that goes around his front; it doesn't show well due to his short size and very furry body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Architect10 Excellent Product - measure carefully
Count us among the many very pleased with the design and fabrication of this excellent vest. The size 32 - listed as 28" to 31" chest - fits our 55# labradoodle, whose chest measured as 29", perfectly. But note the narrow fitting range that is listed for each size. The double velcro fastener is a very clever design and more secure than many. But by design its range of adjustment is quite narrow, as is listed. So measure carefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nyflyboy1 Nice Fit and easy to put on.
I ordered various dog vests from other venders, but none of them fit my English Setter properly. Either they were too small or weren't shaped correctly for a male dog. This vest is easy to put on and looks great. Its not meant to protect the dog's chest if you're in the nasty stuff, but it's highly visible and great in the field.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 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 5 by 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.
