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.

    Love this!

    This is amazing! Especially here in Florida where it gets so hot. Optimus loves his cooking vest and it’s so comfy. He’s gotten a lot of looks when he has it on and people asking where we got it.

    Keeps Jack Cool!

    I bought this for Jack for our hot days on the farm and our hiking adventures. His black fur really soaks up the hear and he is also a very active dog. He is much cooler and more comfortable with the Swamp Cooler and I love how he has full range of motion.

    Swamp Cooler Zip Cooling Dog Vest

    I own both the Swamp Cooler Vest and the Swamp Cooler Zip vest. I use them both for my guide dog and both fit nicely under his guide dog harness. The Swamp Cooler vest has the same fabric all the way around whereas the Swamp Cooler zip has a material similar to a sun shirt on the top. I think this will work better on high humidity days compared to the Swamp Cooler Vest. It also has a lower profile but the cooling effect probably won't last as long as the regular Swamp Cooler Vest. I really love this and it will be great for when my guide dog needs to work in the heat or when we are hiking on hot days. It will be great for playing at the beach too. My dog loves wearing it.
