A snakebite directly to your dog's chest can be fatal, so protecting this vital area is critical. TurtleSkin Snake Armor dog vests are made from the same material as lightweight snake gaiters, and were tested using live diamondback rattlesnakes. They successfully repelled both their strikes and venom, so you can be sure your dog's chest has all the added snake protection necessary.

The TurtleSkin Snake Armor Dog Hunting Vest offers full adjustability to get the best fit for your dog. It features snag free fabric with flat seams to keep the material smooth over your dog's neck, chest and belly, letting your dog run through the underbrush with confidence and comfort.

Snake Protection Features:

  • Better Protection from Snakes -- Most snake garments are heavy, stiff, and bulky. TurtleSkin SnakeArmor's 6 oz. fabric is one-third the weight of other vests, yet tested to repel even large rattlesnakes.

  • Patent Pending Snake Protection -- TurtleSkin SnakeArmor's patented technology produces the tightest weave ever made with high-strength fibers. Its weave is locked so tightly that snake fangs can't slip past, while the tough ballistic fibers resist breaking. This results in an extremely protective fabric that is lightweight and flexible.

  • Tested with Live Snakes -- The TurtleSkin SnakeArmor system was tested with actual live diamondback rattlesnakes, successfully repelling their strikes and venom. In addition, it stopped a simulated snake strike of paired 0.05" diameter needles at 2.63 joules, and 0.042" diameter needles at 2.37 pounds with a penetration limit of 0.03".

    Worth every penny
    March 18, 2021
    I live in Florida and Riley and I are out camping, hiking and exploring in the woods and springs pretty much year round. Last year Riley got between me and a pygmy rattlesnake and within two minutes of the strike he couldn't stand, lost control of his bowels and bladder and went into shock. He dropped to the ground. We were about a mile deep hiking in wetlands. I picked my 2 year old 70lb pup up and put him on my shoulders and made my way back to my Jeep as fast as I could...he was so heavy, and just dead weight on my shoulders. I couldn't see him up on my shoulders and didn't even know after a while if he was even alive anymore. I just kept on with this combination of walking/running/squatting down in 15 to 30 second rest intervals (he was SO heavy!) and trying to get him medical care as quickly as possible. I had my cell phone and managed to call my vet while I made my way out of the marsh who informed me they didn't have antivenen (antivenom), but luckily found a vet out there in the middle of nowhere who did and called ahead to let them know we had an emergency and would be there soon. This was his first snake bite, and the vet said it was a pretty potent one. The vet asked me some questions while they quickly looked him over and then rushed him back and said they'd call me "if he makes it", and would update me as soon as they could get him stable. I never cried so much in my life walking out of there leavin my dog like that and not knowin if I'd get to see him again. After him receiving fluids and antivenom, the vet called and said he pulled through and I could come pick him up and bring him home. The reason my Review Headline is "Worth every penny" is because I think people see the price of this vest or other snake gaiter protection for dogs and balk at the price. That vest visit was well over $1200 and when seconds count I was lucky I was even able to find a vet nearby that had antivenen and that the treatment worked. If you love your dog and your dog is family you should do whatever is necessary to protect them. I feel like I put Riley in harm's way by going in snakey territory and not protecting him in case of exposure. And in Florida where we live, just taking him out in the backyard to pee can be "snake territory". I purchased both the vest and neck gaiter to protect these vulnerable areas for when we go exploring now.
    Pros
    • This vest is lightweight and flexible, while stiff enough to protect, it isn't so stiff that it is uncomfortable on Riley. He doesn't even seem to notice he has it on, and is able to move around freely as he normally does. It is easy to put on him and take off, only takes seconds. I've also noticed it protects his chest against thorns and briars. Thank you to GDS for making this product available!
    Cons
    • Not really a con but something a friend said, and I think others might think is "What about the rest of him?" While you can't cover every inch of your dog in snake gaiter material, it isn't practical and the dog has to be able to walk, there are always going to be exposed areas, you protect what you can. This vest (and the neck gaiter which is sold separately) does an excellent job of protecting Riley's vulnerable neck and chest areas from receiving a strike. It also does an excellent job of protecting against thorns and briars if he gets "off trail" as he did yesterday and wound up in a blackberry patch.
