Nighttime, low light and forest or wilderness locations call for a dog vest that's bright coloured, reflective and light-weight because being cute and furry isn't going to do you any favours against night traffic or people mistaking you for a deer.
Originally developed for the hard working Search and Rescue dogs in New Zealand, this canine vest is all about 360 degree visibility and identification. Everything about this reflective dog vest says 'Don't Shoot!'.
Don't let its bikini-like proportions fool you into thinking this is for lying about by the paddling pool. This vest is as serious about visibility as a labrador is about bringing in the ducks.
If you are looking for something bright but also with coverage and protection from the elements, then you might like the Moon-Walker.
We use high quality retro-reflective fabrics in all our D-fa visibility products. The SAR Vest uses fabric containing a special reflective thread which when combined with a complex weave provides extensive visibility in poor conditions. When light shines onto this fabric millions of tiny glass beads reflect the light back for up to 100m (300yd) directly to the source of the light so the driver of the car or user of the light gets the full wattage of your dog's reflective vest. And if that weren't amazing enough, because it is fabric rather than tape it is more flexibile and is less likely to chip or fade than traditional reflectives.
The SAR Vest offers generous adjustment and we have done everything we can to maximise the ergonomics on this small, lightweight vest. If you think of our other jackets as snow-suits, think of this as our bikini top! It covers only where it touches and nowhere else!
