Swamp Cooler Zip™ Cooling Dog Vest

lightweight cooling dog vest

Color

Selected: Aurora Teal

The Swamp Cooler Zip efficiently cools dogs during light and fast, high-intensity adventures through shading and evaporative cooling. The light and sleek Swamp Cooler Zip uses shade-providing spandex over the back and Ruffwear’s Swamp Cooler™ tech in the chest panel for an evaporative cooling effect that disperses heat from the dog’s core. To tap into the Swamp Cooler™ tech, soak in water, zip on your dog, and go.

What's New: We updated the Swamp Cooler Zip (formerly known as the Jet Stream) with new materials to hold more water and a longer charge, and new patterning and construction for an improved fit and performance.

How does Swamp Cooler™ Tech work? Learn more about evaporative cooling and other ways to keep your dog cool.

    Cool Vest

    This style is perfect for our boxers. Great cooling capacity on the chest for deep chested dogs. Like the added reflective qualities on the new style.

    A must for summer hikes!

    Fits great under a backpack or a harness. Keeps m black GSD cool. Not as bulky as her cooling coat and seems less likely to snag. Fits snug but easy to put on with the side zipper. She is often between sizes in RuffWear and hard to fit. We went with a size large in this. 72lbs, 31.5 “long from collar to base of tail. 31.5” girth

    Reduces panting!

    Black lab looks and feels amazing in her cooling vest! She maintains her "professional" appearance when wearing it on duty as my service animal and I know she's staying cool whether she is working or not!

    This is a lifesaver in this Ga summer

    This vest is a lifesaver for my Malinois in this Georgia Summer. While he ‘tolerated the process of zipping it up, having the cool close to his skin really helps keep him cool through evaporation. In addition it helps with sun and tick protection.
