This is a really well made heavy duty vest. The only issue is that I have Griffs and their chest is never the size of labs- thankfully. BUT, it means that I end up cutting out darts of fabric, using a neoprene glue to rejoin the cuts and then stitching. Despite the modifications, I like this better than other vests that I have seen. It is heavier, has a sturdy zipper and a good grab handle. It works well. I even had my young dog in an icy Montana lake prepping for our cool spring natural ability tests. Warm towels and the heat cranked up awaited him, but he was very happy in his vest to retrieve dummies.
