Simply soaking the Cool Vest® in water provides a protective layer for dogs from direct and indirect sunlight and heat. Its laminated lining keeps dogs dry. The Cool Vest® doesn't use any toxic chemical polymer crystals, so it is safe, thin and very lightweight. Perfect for summer outings & everyday walks for your dogs. Cool Vest® is made with a special fabric that absorbs and retains water well. It requires no refrigeration and takes less than a minute to prepare. Unlike the products withpolymer crystals, the Cool Vest® never get too heavy or bulky even when you leave the vest in water for longer time. The vest utilizes a simple scientific principle - cooling through evaporation. As water gradually transforms from a liquid state into vapor, it consumes the heat around it. The same effect happens when you soak a T-shirt in water and wear it to cool down on a hot day at the beach. The differences between using a wet T-shirt and the Cool Vest® are 1: the liner is waterproof so dogs don't get wet and, 2: this special fabric allows slow evaporation. The result is you don't have to deal with a messy, wet dog while trying to make them comfortable and you don't have to run for water every 15 minutes to retain the cooling effect - On average the vest remains effective from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the air temperature and humidity. To refresh the effect, only thing you need to do is to wet it again. Anywhere, anytime, just slowly pour a bottle of water on the vest whenever you want to refresh the effect. The Cool Vest® is intended to reduce heat exhaustion for all age groups and kinds of dogs. The Cool Vest® covers vital organs, providing cooling effects without excessive coldness that would be harmful to a dog's health. This sporty vest is available in 5 sizes in 2 colors. MADE IN JAPAN, US PATENT PENDING. Size Large: Neck 13 ~ 23 inches Girth 26 ~ 37 inches

We first started using this and I was amazed with how well it worked! He stays dry and you can rehydrate perfectly with a bottle of water I bring down to the field when we train, like it says. I put my hand under the vest and he's so nice and cool under there versus how hot the rest of him gets that isn't covered by the vest.
He looks a bit ridiculous in this baby blue vest, but it keeps him cool AND dry so I'm happy and he's happy!
I was worried about taking a chance with it being a bit pricey and only one review, but it is durable and lightweight and seems to really work. I am buying another one for my other dog to keep her cool on our walks, too!
On the plus side, the vest keeps him cooler. I particularly notice it when we get home from a hike--it only takes a few minutes for him to stop panting once we are inside the cool house, whereas before he had the vest, it could take much longer, and I'd have to wipe him down with a cool, wet cloth to help him "chill out."
On the negative side, the vest does not extend very far down his back. His entire lumbar area is still exposed, and since he is black, he heats up rapidly. The biggest problem, however, is that the Velcro no longer sticks well! My dog walks for a few minutes and the straps come apart. I have cleaned the Velcro, but that hasn't helped. It seems as though the wetter the material is, the worse the problem. This is a huge pain in the neck. The vest needs a more heavy-duty type of Velco, or I'll have to start pinning the straps. For this reason, I'm only giving the vest a 2-star rating.
Note: The best thing to do for your dog is to avoid walking or running in the heat. If you are out in hot conditions, be sure to offer your dog drinking water often. I also wet down my dog's head frequently when we are out in warm temperatures--even when he's wearing his vest. Remember, dogs can't sweat like we do, but must thermoregulate by panting. When air temperatures are high, dogs are very susceptible to heat stroke.
