For years, I used a Cabelas neoprene dog vest with velcro, it was awesome and lasted years. Since my new dog is smaller, I've tried a couple of other brands, and they haven't lasted a year. I've tried the Browning and the RedHead ones. Cabelas discontinued theirs and I'm looking for some good alternatives. They come apart at the top of the neck and just rip along he seams for the most part. Mostly rice blind hunting, may do some boat hunting... Thanks in advance on any experiences!
