Petflect Reflective Dog Vest Size: Medium
I was looking for something for my dogs to wear during winter when we run. I wear a reflective vest and head lamp, but I could never see my dogs if they weren't in my direct line of sight. I live in the country so there is no lights and we run on a gravel road and occasionally meet cars. These vests are very bright and I don't lose sight of the dogs anymore at all. They do run a little small, and I wish they came in an XL. So just keep that in mind when ordering. I also wish the band around the stomach was a little wider.

I chose this vest over others I reviewed because it offered more coverage of the dog for better visibility. We ordered the medium size for a small shepherd type dog, which fits OK, but a large would cover more like in the product picture. Living in the Northwest, where winter days are short and nights are long, we often walk our dog after dark and we wanted the maximum coverage for the most visibilty. The velcro closures make for easy on and off, which is a plus for our easily frightened dog. We also ordered a reflective leash and now we are good to go after dark!

This vest is made very well
The vest is easy to put on, light weight, and made very well. My fog doesn't mind wearing it.

Good with caution
Searched fruitlessly for a reflective vest for my Dutch Shepherd's late night walks, only to find not much available, especially in the U.S. However, this lightweight product in International Orange, presumably for field & hunting work, works well with one exception - the stitching on the Velcro. After less than one month, one Velcro strip on the neck closure flapped free which required me to sew it on more securely.
When Drs. Foster & Smith were informed of this defect, the company promptly offered a partial credit which was appreciated. Neighborhood kids shout "like your dog's sweater" when we walk by.
