We are very excited to bring you the *** NEW ** Swimmer Vest from Hurtta !!
The Swimmer vest is a durable and warming high-visibility vest for outdoor activities such as swimming, SUP paddling, water rescue, rehabilitation and hunting. The vest is made of elastic and non-absorbent neoprene, for warmth and comfort. The material is durable and silent in use. Thanks to its excellent thermal insulation, the neoprene vest is particularly suitable for water-rescue dogs that work in cool temperatures and gundogs that retrieve game from water. The vest features floats that support the dog when swimming. The vest’s belly flap protects the dog’s sensitive belly area.
The vest is a great, snug fit making it ergonomic and also safe. There are handle openings on the back of the vest that you can use to lift and help your dog out of the water. The back of the vest has zip fastening with a locking mechanism on the slider, that prevents the zipper from opening when the dog moves. The belly flap can be cut to size, if you need to cut around your male dog's manhood (ahem!) - There are printed guide lines on the inside of the vest to help cut into the right shape. Use scissors to cut the flap into shape, taking care not to cut over seams.
The Hurtta Swimmer Vest features integrated float panels. The floats are made of EVA foam plastic and provide additional support for swimming, enabling the dog to stay in the water longer. The buoyancy of the vest has been tested by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. This Vest is not a life jacket however - but it will improve the dog’s performance when swimming.
- Comfortable and tight fitting neoprene, for warmth and comfort
- Highly visible 3M® reflectors
- Floats that support the dog when swimming
The Swimmer Vest also has a bug-repellent Clariant treatment (active ingredient is Permethrin). This treatment protects against mosquitoes, horse flies, ticks and other insects. The fabric is dermatologically tested and certified safe to use on dogs. The material is machine washable according to instructions. The finishing retains its properties for up to 100 washes. Sanitized finishing is used in fatigues, hiking and hunting equipment, and in tents and sleeping bags.
The Clariant treatment is deeply bonded in the fabric but for safety we recommend avoiding use of the Swimmer Vest on cats, as Permethrin is poisonous to them. To be fair... Your cat probably wont like it anyway !!
Only available in Orange Camo initially.
NOT SUITABLE FOR CATS !!
