The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler uses natural evaporative cooling to keep your dog cool. Soak it in cold water, wring it out, and fasten around your dog. Evaporative cooling exchanges the dog's heat as water evaporates from the coat's reservoir. Temperatures drop through the phase transition of liquid water to water vapor, mimicking the cooling effect of humans' sweat.

The Swamp Cooler's light color is designed to reflect heat from the sun. Combined with the evaporative cooling effect, the Swamp Cooler will keep dogs comfortable and ready to run that extra mile. Auto-lock buckles on each side of the jacket provide easy on/off.



  • Maximum cooling through evaporation and heat reflection
  • Three-layer construction:
    ⁃ Wicking outer layer facilitates evaporation
    ⁃ Absorbent middle layer stores water for evaporation
    ⁃ Comfortable inner layer transfers cooling effect to the dog
  • Active fit for full range of motion
  • Side-release buckles for easy on/off
  • Low-light visibility with reflective trim

  4. Not worth it. Put in freezer before walk will help tho Review by Teddy

    my chow chow doesnt show too much difference. Its basically the same effect when i just put some water on his coat. A bit disappointing for this price.
    Only after i put the vest into the freezer for 15 min before walking, it was cold enough to show a difference. But hk is very hot and after 15 - 20 min the vest has normal temperature again. (Posted on 7/1/2017)

  6. this worked so well Review by Sara

    I was really skeptical at first but I did a lot of research on many different sites and it kept getting great reviews so I thought I'd try it. I just wet the coat in the bath tub and put it in the fridge for about 20 minutes before we left. I didn't even have to re-wet it along the way. If you have an active dog who hates the heat, this is for you. I am still amazed this worked so well! (Posted on 6/3/2016)

  7. seems to work Review by Mike

    I bought this for my older dog for our 1 hour hikes. When it gets above 80 degrees he acts like he is going to die. I bought this vest to help the situation. It fits well and seems to be doing the job. You should wet the vest well and also wet the dogs fur. The vest along with being wet, will help the fur retain its wetness. (Posted on 6/1/2016)

  8. Highly recommended 4 all dogs in summer! Review by Khan

    Love these vests! I have bought three of them, in all sizes, for my pack in Phoenix. This is a great product: keeps dog cool in hot weather. I wash it everyday in the summer, and the material is high-quality and long-lasting! Highly recommended! (Posted on 6/1/2016)
