Sylmar Front Body Suit Inside Detail Sylmar Front Body Suit Bottom Detail Sylmar Front Canine Body Suit in Use

The Sylmar Body Suit is an excellent design providing the very best of protection for the chest, belly, and front legs for the dog that needs the extra coverage not provided by the Body Guard Vest.

  • Gives your dog added warmth and increased visibility at a distance and in cover
  • The three buckle straps will allow more adjustability and breathability
  • Manufactured of 500 denier ripstop Cordura material and an additional layer of 1000 denier black cordura for extra belly and chest protection
  • Made in the USA

  • When combined with a Rear Body Suit and Field Boots, your dog will be warm and completely protected from the elements.

    We recommend a break-in period for the Front Body Suit before extended use. The more use the Front Body Suit receives the softer it will become, yet it will maintain its toughness and durability because of the ripstop material. Hand washing will also help to soften the material.

    We suggest a gradual introduction period for the Front Body Suit. Put the Suit on your dog for a short period of time and make it a fun experience with a walk or playing fetch, etc. Gradually increase the amount of time in the Body Suit and soon your dog will look forward to wearing their new Sylmar Front Body Suit.

    Little long in the legs

    Great rugged material. I few washings and I'm sure it'll be a bit softer for Gus to wear for longer periods of time. Gus is a 1-year-old basset hound that we plan to train as a deer recovery dog. He is just a little guy though at 38 pounds. The leg length of the vest could have been adjustable, then it would be perfect.
    • rugged vibrant colored material should protect the chest, armpits and front legs well.
    • length option when purchasing or adjustable legs would be great

    The body suit was perfect!

    My pheasant hunting lab wore her new body suit for the first time yesterday. She used to get cut on barb wire every time she hunted. She just went full speed ahead and paid the price with nasty cuts on her legs.
    Yesterday not a single cut or scratch on her. She ran like she always does, the suit did not slow her down. One of the other hunters asked where I got her suit and he said he has a dog that needs one too.
    • Good fit good color easy on and off didnt hinder her hunting
    • Not a single con

    Tried it on in the house and Rocco hated it. He walked around like he was walking in tar. I thought he would never tolerate it. But I put it on him out in the field and as soon as he started running around he forgot all about it. It really helped cut down on the burrs.
    • good durable material
    • easy to put on dog
    • easy to adjust straps
    • almost symmetrical - pay attention to front vs. back

    Well made.
    The size I ordered for Annie was too big so I returned it for a refund. I'm not sure even with a properly sized vest I don't think she would get used to it. Too heavy and cumbersome. Not sure that the legs need fully protection.
    • Well constructed
    • Too heavy and cumbersome.

    My Britt caught her leg on a piece of barb wired. This allowed her to start hunting again after only 4 days. It is easy to put on. Stays on without any issues and Procter the wound well.

    Legs were a bit long and slid down over dogs paws, even when Velcro drew tight. My wife cut them a bit shorter and hemmed. The dog is able to move about freely and the vest has provided great protection of forelegs, chest, and belly area while hunting pheasants on CRP ground in Iowa that last year, when the dog was unprotected resulted in hair loss and raw, bleeding skin.

    This is an amazing suit. One note, hand wash it and use Fabric Softener! It then becomes nice and pliable and comfy for dog. This is well worth the money. You can even send it back to the Sylmar company for free alterations.
    I have a small 30lb ESS and had to exchange with Sylmar for an XS.

    I like this product a lot! It's a great concept. My dog gets beat to crap grouse and woodcock hunting. This coat keeps him in good shape. The reason I don't give it a better score is because the Velcro cuffs on the legs do not stay when my dog is in the field. I have to duct tape them. Sylmar needs to come up with a better concept to keep the the legs tight.

    We really liked the concept, but the fit was way off.

    Very stiff and noisy, but does protect. I have washed 3 times, and it is getting somewhat better.

    It did not fit my very lean lab, and I had to return it. Good product, just did not fit her. Still looking for a solution to protect her front legs from barb wires.

    My dog put this thing through the wringer for a week of really tough grouse hunting terrain. Did have to duct tape the leg Velcro closures because the tough dense brush would eventually rip them open. Other than that it held up great ,and it really took a beating from the woods. Did rub him under the armpit. Tee shirt took care of that.

    I have a German Shorthair we hunt pheasant with. This season she got cut up pretty bad from the corn stalks, so bad in fact we had to cut the hunt short and get her stitched up. I later purchased the Canine Body Suit, GREAT IN CONCEPT, because it would protect her legs and tummy. However, when we put it the dog it was too restrictive and reduced her range of motion. She would just stand there and sulk. Don't give up on this design, it is precisely the protection I need for my dog, but find a material that offers protection, prevents over heating, and permits a full range of motion. Keep up the good work. I did purchase the Sylmar protective vest without the leg coverage and it works just fine - but I would still like to find a way to cover a portion of her front legs that always get cut up after every hunt.

    The vest works well, but is made of really stiff material and therefore rubs my dogs skin and chaffs. If I put a Thundershirt underneath it then it does not rub and the dog is more comfortable. I have only washed it once, so it may soften up in time.

    Protects the legs and chest,but can rub skin raw. If dog has cuts bandaged, can keep dog from removing them.
