Glow Dog Reflective Fido Jacket. This weatherproof, lined jacket provides full-torso coverage, uses secure nylon straps with Velcro® closure. Made from polyester and microfiber materials that are Telfon® coated allowing greater breathability and moisture wicking. Lining is soft, durable and non-pilling. During the day the jacket is an attractive color, at night oncoming headlights reflect back to the driver who sees the entire item as bright white. The fabric is embedded with millions of tiny "mirrors" that reflect back to any light source. Simply measure your dog from the base of the tail to the base of the neck for the correct size. Full torso coverage with secure, durable nylon straps using an adjustable Velcro closure system. Machine wash in cold water, tumble dry on low heat.
Not to be confused with 'glow-in-the-dark' visibility, illumiNITE is a retro-reflective technology which means the reflective qualities are visible only to the light source. When a vehicle's headlights shine on the jacket (at intersections, coming up from behind and approaching from the front) your dog will be visible to the driver.
Colors (may vary slightly):
To determine the correct dog jacket size, simply measure your dog from the base of the tail to the base of the neck. Compare length of your dog to the size chart below to determine correct fit.
To View: You can replicate these conditions indoor with a flashlight to view the reflectivity of your Glow Dog products; Stand about ten (10) feet away from the product, preferably in a darkened room. Holding the flashlight at the eye level against the side of your head, shine the beam directly at the fabric.
The pictured jacket has only one strap, however, due to the size, in XL there are two velcro straps that go under your animal to secure the jacket. Please note, the size of the black border varies from unit to unit.

We like the reflective value of the coat and it works pretty well for that, but the weatherproof claim fails miserably. We put the coat on our German Shepard during a decent rain and when we came back in she was soaked under the coat. If you're looking for a weatherproof dog jacket, this isn't the one.

I've had a a Glow Dog vest for 15 years and it's held up to numerous washing. Now I have two dogs and had to purchase another vest. Still same great product that saved our lives countless times.

These reflective dog jackets are the best! And we've tried them all. Highly visible from a long distance and they stay in place even our dogs are running.
Our only complaint is lack of color selection, we wanted the lime green but only a couple of colors were available

It's a dog coat. It works well to keep rain off and reflect light. I use it with a light on my dog's collar and he's pretty visible. The material has no insulation but keeps the fur dry, which is enough for our climate.
Response: This product does not boast thermal protection. It is a lined shell constructed to provide additional visibility for your pet.

this is a great dog jacket for the early morning walks and those after dinner walks. I have a vest for me and the jacket for my dog Aili. it fits her perfectly and we know we are visible to all the passing cars along our walking route which includes some side walks and some walking along a road.

The coat reflects light as a white surface directly back to the light source, but otherwise remains dark; it would benefit from additional, traditional bright reflective strips. Wetness substantially reduces the reflectivity. The coat material is thin.

Love how the entire coat is reflective, not just a couple of stripes. We've had one for years for one of our dogs; just rescued a new dog, had to get her a reflective coat too. Fits well, easy to put on and take off.
