There’s a lot to like about the Float Coat. In several ways, it’s better than our reigning champion, the Hurtta Life Savior.
They’re well designed, durable, grippy boots that don’t fall off even with crazy activity (a victory previously only achieved with his stretch-closure Dogbooties.com).
Robin might be at the top of his life jacket’s recommended weight, but he bobs on the surface like a cork.
Well, it WAS made just for him, so of course it fits! But that’s easy to say, and much harder to do. I’ve tried to make clothes for several dogs while they were present for fittings, and they’ve come out mediocre to terrible.
The fit of the Jet Stream really helps its effectiveness on slimmer dogs like Robin – the Swamp Cooler doesn’t actually touch his belly, because it’s so big (and due to its stiffness, he would have been chafed if it did).
Petoji collars are made of coated, super strong webbing that’s durable and rinses clean of pretty much every gross thing your dog can drag it though.
The purpose of this mod was to keep the Webmaster harness looking “stock” as much as possible, so that it could be used alone, while still securely attaching the saddlebags when needed.
The Outward Hound Clownfish just became my highest-recommended life jacket at this price point.
The cabin features two openings large enough for entry. There’s an official mesh door at the back, and a large sunroof at the top, which is Robin’s preferred entrance.
Wilderdog leashes are the best I’ve seen on the market for applications where real strength is needed. With multiple color options (including reflective), two diameters and two lengths, there’s a good fit for every dog…
The round cut and darted shape at the rump is really designed for lanky hound bodies with low-set tails. It appears from some of their product photos that they mean for the coats to fit longer in the back, extending down over the tail a bit.
All dogs can swim, right? Well, not necessarily, and even those that swim well can panic if they slide off a paddleboard involuntarily. Here are a few reasons to use a dog life jacket for water adventures, especially for paddling or boating where the shore may not be easily reachable.
