Use your vest during pre-season training and conditioning to acclimate your dog to the vest.
The Dokken Supervest Xtreme is great for all hunting and training conditions. It features "SuperStretch" 3mm Neoprene construction with heavy duty nylon stitching, and a zippered closure with an extra wide velcro flange.
My girl is very slender and none of the vests at Bass Pro fit her. I took a chance on Dokken's small because it was smaller than the rest. I felt confident in it because Mr. Dokkens suggests in his book to use thinner neoprene to get a good snug wrap. It does exactly that. Its perfect and keeps her warm. Thanks for having what we needed.

It fits our girl Freyja very well. Sizing chart was very accurate. Already used it a few times in the field. Keeps her warm and protects her underside. Seems like it should hold up under the tough conditions.

"It's durable, functional, looks nice, and is better made than any dog jacket you can get at the petstore for equal or better price!"
I have gotten the XXL size one for my 90 lb Lab Pitbull mix, and it works great! He isn't a hunting dog even though he'd be a great one. Naturally quarters just ahead of you on hikes and finds doves and other birds with his great nose and flushes them out of hiding. However this is a great jacket regardless. The stitching is highly durable, and the material itself is as well. He's gone through thorn bushes and plays with other dogs and hadn't gotten so much as a scratch on the neoprene. The Velcro that attaches over the zipper is also some strong stuff and you actually have to put some force into opening. This jacket will not come off unless someone actually takes it off! Keeps him warm on colder days too as his fur is more on the pitbull side, so it's not as thick as lab's coat. For a hunting dog or any dog spending a lot of time outdoors in colder weather I would highly recommend this jacket. It's durable, functional, looks nice, and is better made than any dog jacket you can get at the petstore for equal or better price!

"Thank you for the excellent merchandise and the quickness with which this gift was shipped."
I am happy with this product. Got it for our Chocolate Lab for waterfowl hunting. She is almost a year old. We measured her according to the size chart, and said the large would fit. It does fit perfectly, but I believe getting the XL would have worked just as well. She likes to strut around in it and show off her new gear.

I can completely be honest to say that the neoprene insulated dog vest is incredibly amazing since it is so securely attached to his body and keeps him so much warmer than without one swimming in cold water!! The camouflage design of it allows him to be camouflaged at the pond or in the field and look identical to my camouflage!

Had to cut it a little under front arms, but it's a great vest. Bella loves to wear it. Works well in duck blind and during the blizzard we just had. Thanks. This is second vest we have ordered. She out grew the first one. She is big chested. lol She is also still wearing the collar we ordered. Everything has been great.

Hi Steve, the vest is really proven to be helpful with my dog Buddy. He is a bigger breed Lab, and I really had trouble finding the right fit for him. I tried most top line hunting dog suppliers including Cabelas /Bass Pro etc. I decided to shop for a larger vest online, and found your website. You had the extra large size that he needed, and it fits just about perfect! It is much colder hunting now, and it seems to keep him comfortable. Thanks for a great product. Tom

Thanks to several comments posted, I took a chance on it fitting him. This vest is cut for a more lean spaniel. Looks very well made. He may not hunt the best, but he should be comfortable/warm in this.

Fits great for our huge golden retriever. She's just starting into birds. Seems comfortable for her, and it's easy to put on. Durable zipper and really strong Velcro! Thanks Gun Dog Supply for a great product.

Quality of product is great. Shipping was fast.. love the large heavy duty zipper. I may have ordered it a bit small, but it is doing the job! It does stretch a bit, so that is good. Hard to judge size online, but well worth it in quality.

The vest is Great! The 3m neoprene stretches a little, so I was able to get a good fit after a minor alteration. Nico is deep chested, and that makes him hard to fit, but this vest was what was needed. Kept him warm in the water for a day of duck hunting. Just what we needed. As always, customer service was great, and the vest arrived in time for the hunt. THANKS

Love the vest! It fits perfectly, and she seems to enjoy wearing it. She has been hunting three times wearing it and has obviously been able to maintain her body heat much easier and has not been as tired when she gets home.

Looks to be a great product. The measurement chart was right on. Looking forward to hunting season and will hopefully start using it in her training to acclimate her to the vest. She was a little nervous when I put it on her at first. Looks to be very sturdy and should work great in cold water and protection from spurs and barbed wire fences.

I love this vest for my dog. It's what I've been looking for ever since we go into the woods. Now he can go in with me and not worry about thorns or other dangerous plants that can scratch him. Thanks Gun Dog Supply!!!

It's a perfect fit...I have a 8 month old GWP...he runs on the little smaller side hes about 45 pounds and lean, its slightly too big for him, but he will grow into it. It has kept him warm so far in temps around 29-35 degrees early morning duck hunts (south dakota). Good price too.

My pup was in between small and medium. I notified Gun Dog I was ordering both and would return one. They sent a return authorization along with mailing label with vests!!!! Great service. I always go there first for my needs.

I love the vest, and more importantly so does he. I had to trim it a little on the chest going into the leg holes. But I expected that. No two dogs are the same. So far, great vest for the price. He is warm, so I am happy.

Although not your typical hunting breed, my short haired friend performed unbelievably retrieving everything that dropped in water or rushes. The vest fit perfectly and provided her with warmth and protection and helped conceal her from the geese that are always spooky and aware. Great product!

"certainly helped her deal with the cold a bit better"
Needed a small neoprene vest for my Boykin, as she is not equipped like her Labrador sister for the cold water. It arrived overnight as requested. Only got it use it once, but it certainly helped her deal with the cold a bit better.

All dogs vary in size, and it is expected that a vest should be trimmed. Only down side with this vest is that it lacks bartacks needed for more extensive trimming. I lucked out and didn't need to trim where there was stitching. Good product for the price.

Fits my 43lb pointer well except for the front where it spans her chest. It has a pucker that collects seeds and twigs. I am going to stitch a few darts in the front to tighten the material laterally. It should be fine. Maybe the mfg. should consider some type of expanding fabric to allow for a snugger fit in front.

I think it's a decent vest for the money . If the zipper holds up that's all I really care about . Getting the vest on the dog, and you have trouble with the zipper, it gets frustrating. The neoprene seems to outlast the zipper. I would buy this brand again. I think if you get a year or two out of this vest that's good and that's all I'm expecting.

It's difficult to get a vest that fits the deep chested/slim dog like my Setter. This is a pretty good fit for him. I'd give a five star rating but I'm not sure on the durability. The stitching looks like it might unravel in time.

I bought one for each of my dogs for duck hunting trips and used them two days in a row. The second day one of the vests started to come apart at the seams, and I finally had to take it off the dog. I just think that the sewing needs to be reinforced on this brand of vest. However, I called Gun Dog Supply and told them about my issue, and they rectified the issue by sending me another new vest to try. I have owned other dog hunting vests and come to the conclusion that they really only last a year or two if your dogs hunt a whole lot...like mine do! So this one that separated kinda threw me for a loop, when it basically only lasted the two days. Might have just been a bad apple coming out of the factory.

"It had loose thread around the zipper and upon pulling it a little tore real easy."
The first time I used it, he had some small amount of irritation on the front legs from rubbing where it bends on the jacket. I felt it wasn't a big deal. It was small, but he came back from hunting today, and his front legs are all raw, inflamed and sore, and all the hair is worn off of the areas all the way down the upper part of his leg. I think I need to find him a long sleeve t shirt to wear until it heals or he will continually lick it. I was going to put a shirt under it. but the sleeves were not long enough. It got a lot of good reviews, so I tried it, but feel bad that it did this too him. So I just wanted to make people aware that this is a possibility, especially with short haired dogs. Thanks for your time.

I have a very small lab. I purchased the smallest size I could find. After using it for two days, I discovered that the vest had rubbed raw spots under her front legs. In fairness to the product, it could be because my dog is so small.
