The LCS Hi-Vis Dog Safety Vest is the most economical high visibility dog vest on the market. Made from a lightweight yet rugged blaze orange nylon panel that covers only the back and ribs of the dog to avoid overheating in the field. Stitched on to the panel are five 1 in. wide by 5 in. long reflective strips that will pick up the light from any flashlight, head lamp or truck headlights. The two straps that go around the neck and the chest of the dog are constructed from the same durable woven nylon as our ¾ in. collars with heavy duty Velcro fasteners. A quick and inexpensive safety option when hunting pheasants with a large group, hunting predators or vermin at night with hounds, or even walking your dog around the neighborhood in the evening.
Determine the proper size by measuring the chest girth of your dog with a measuring tape from the spine in between the shoulders, around the ribcage right behind the legs, then back around the other side to the top of the back. Sizes: Small (17-20 in.), Medium (21-25 in.), Large (26-34 in.) and X-Large (35-46 in.)
I got one of these to protect the dog from ticks. I spray it with a tick repellent and let that dry before putting it on the dog. I make my own repellent by mixing 1 part of Yard Guard with 5 parts of water. I use the same solution to spray my hunting pants and coat.
Economical Safety Vest
I ordered two of these vests because I trail ride with my dogs during hunting season. They were very affordable and stay on well. My dogs love to swim so they have been in the water in these things and they stay on. I also like that the velcro strap allows some flexibility with sizing.

Good backup vest
I used to go through a few of these every season before I bought the LCS Bird Dog-Armor Vest. Now I keep a couple as backups or to loan to hunting partners. A hard working dog will be hard on these lightweight vest, but they are a good value for the price.
