Great Product!

The float coat is working well so far. The fit is excellent - snug enough to be secure but accommodates a good range of motion for the dogs. Our younger dog has no problem jumping in and out of the boat with it on and it gives a bit of additional warmth when the wind blows. The handle is a great option for helping our older dog in and out of the boat and it doesn't bunch up when she sits or lays down. Great product and exactly what we were looking for when we purchased.

Best Float Coat Out There.

I want to thank all of you for sending me the Float Coat. This is the second one I have bought. The first was at a yard sale for my other dog. Hands down the best fit and best materials on the market today. BZ. That's NAVY for Job Well Done. JG Nowak, Master, USNS FISHER (T-AKR 301)

Float Coats for my Crew

Just purchased four of these for my pack of 4 Bostons. They are so easy to fit on each dog and will be great when we take them out fishing with us. Beautifully constructed and I'm certain they will last a long time. All of our dogs were comfortable wearing them which has not always been the case with less expensive life vests. Kudos!
