$105.50 – $120.50 (USD)
Our Original Sports Vest was first introduced in 2003. It is made of a highly durable, breathable, stretchable and water resistant material that is tough enough to protect your dog from the harshest conditions. Unlike most vests on the market, our Sports Vest covers the entire chest and rib cage as well as the upper front legs and underarms. There is Cordura along the chest and abdomen to provide added protection. We’ve also expanded the sizes we offer to fit a wider range of breeds, weights and body styles. Our Blaze Orange Sports Vests are expected to begin restocking in mid-late June. Please call (888)833-5959 or email us at [email protected] to be placed on a list to receive Sports Vest updates, pre-sale and restock information.
To ensure your dog gets the right size the first time, here’s what you’ll need:
Girth Measurement – measure all the way around the deepest part of your dog’s chest (see diagram below). Then go to our sizing guide to determine the correct size.
If you have questions or need assistance, contact us via email or give us a call at (888) 833-5959 and we’ll be happy to help you.
- In order to provide the best fit possible, two new sizes have been added to our line of Sports Vests. The addition has altered our sizing guidelines. Dogs may not wear the same size of vest as they did in previous years. Be sure to see the updated sizing guide for new measurement ranges and appropriate sizing.

We have two of these vests for our hunting dogs. I cannot speak more highly of them. Today we had our puppy out and she ran into a barbed wire fence and got tangled. Two small holes in her sports vest, but she did not get ripped up. I am positive she would have been hurt without it. We love the upper leg protection, and the high neck. No burrs and grasses get under it, as other ones we have owned have. I HIGHLY recommend this hunting vest.

Best all around vest. Protection, warmth and visibility. Improvements that I see in the new design should only enhance this experience. My older pup loves to sleep in it as well. He will keep it on for the entire Winter if I let him! One of my pups fell through ice one time, shook it off like it was nothing, little to no retained water in this vest.

Amazing product! My white bull terrier girl had such an issue when we went to the woods and coming back home covered all over with scratches! This vest saved all the trouble. Vest is nice and stretchable. Light but sturdy and protective at the same time. Excellent choice of material!

Material is thick and sturdy, fit allows for arm mobility and stops short of our dog’s boy parts to allow for comfort and calls of nature. At first, we were afraid it would be too snug compared to other skid plates we’ve bought for hunting brush, but this is a really good fit around the torso. Can’t wait to hit the local WMA for a hunt to see if we can get away with a minimum of stickers in the arm pits and on the legs.

I’ve been using this product for many years on my Field Bred English Cocker. Best protection out there. You can tell by looking at the scrapes and tears. An added benefit is the orange helps visibility of the dog. I wouldn’t be without one.

The K9 top coat for my hunting dogs are the best on the market. I have experimented with others and they do not hold up. The extra fit down the dogs front shoulder helps shield with stickers and barbed wire fences. They are worth every penny!!

The Sports Vest has been the best vest I’ve ever used. All the other “vests” out there only cover the belly and some of the sides of the dog. The Sports Vest provides all around protection on the dog, especially the shoulders area! All the other vests out there don’t cover the areas of the dog that are prone to injury as they run through the cover in the field. It has saved me LOTS of $$ in vet bills and most importantly, less injuries to my best hunting friend!

By the way the second vest is for my new Pup, “Bernie” a 2 year old Wire Haired Pointing Griffon.

I Just ordered my second vest. I don’t even remember how long ago I bought the original. My Vizsla, “Lu” wore it hunting as the weather got too cold for her. She wore it so long the zipper failed after many years so I made holes in the top along the zipper and used a cord to weave it like a corset on her. Eventually it ripped out in several spots, I repaired it. Finally she became sick and I had to put her to rest forever. She wore the vest on her final hunt and I took her to her grave with it. She was a champion. I miss her and I was always grateful for the vest and I know she did. The arm sleeves are what really sold me on the product. She NEVER chaffed in her armpits from the vest and it kept her warm too!
