Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Dog Cooling Vest

Three-layer construction:

  • Wicking outer layer reflects heat and facilitates evaporation
  • Absorbent middle layer stores water for evaporation
  • Comfortable inner layer transfers cooling effect to the dog

The Swamp Cooler has side release buckles for easy on and off. There is also a harness hole if you want to put your dog's harness on under the cool coat.

For visibility in low light, there is reflective trim and a light loop to attach a small light like The Beacon (optional).

Simply soak in water, squeeze out any excess water and pop it on your dog. You are good to go! Add more water as and when needed.

All Ruffwear products are rigorously field tested and they proudly guarantee against defects in materials and craftsmanship so when you buy Ruffwear you can have the confidence you are buying a product that lasts.


For your dog's girth please measure around the widest part of the rib cage.

In-between sizes or a unique shape? Consider the garment's length and neck opening circumference.
