    Our dogs love these harnesses!

    The harness is easy to put on. The material is strong. We took the dogs hiking while we were camping. They seemed like they were a lot more comfortable than with their other harness. The other good feature is that the dogs can't back out of the harness. I ordered a size too big and the initial shipping and the return shipping was so fast and easy. Most of our dog gear is from Ruffwear.

    It works!

    We used the swamp cooler harness for the first time today on our 47 lb Aussie (the medium fit perfect). We soaked the harness and pup prior to our 1 and 1/2 hour hike. What a difference! She was faster and had more stamina, as she was obviously more comfortable. We soaked it once during the hike in a stream. It was close to 90 and the Colorado mountain sun was beating down, but our pup was cool and happy.

    Neighborhood test approved

    Bought two for my girls based on a review from our local shoe store guy. Took the girls for their daily 4 mile walk with the Swamp Coolers on and at first they walked funny but they got use to them a couple minutes later. The girls were tongue out tired but cool to the touch when we got home and seemed more energetic than before we owned the Swamp Coolers. The real test will be next month in South Dakota. We are typically there for two weeks hiking everyday. Photos and updated review to follow.

    Great harness for the summer

    It genuinely stays cool once it’s wet and going to let my dog stay outside for longer!

    We like these harnesses!

    Fit very nicely (l/xl) on my golden retrievers. They seemed comfortable wearing them even though it was 99 degrees out. We were camping and our dogs prefer to sit outside. They didn’t seem to be overheating or uncomfortable and the best stayed nice and damp. Their fur wasn’t damp though. I’m glad I purchased them for this trip. The leashes were very easy to attach to the picnic table as well. I was pleased to find the single poo bag as well.
