Product Description

The Swamp Cooler from Ruffwear is an effective coat to help your dog stay cool on warm days. The new design increases the effectiveness of this innovative dog cooling vest by using better materials that enable water to be held for an increased duration. This provides longer lasting and better evaporative cooling. This results in extended cooling that allows dogs and their humans to make the most out of summer days. The redesigned cooling jacket is only available in one colour, grey, this was found to be the most effective colour to reflect the suns rays.

The integrated leash portal allows leash attachment when the Swamp Cooler is worn over the Front Range or WebMaster Harnesses.

Just soak it in cold water, wring it out, and fasten around your dog. Evaporative cooling (like an actual swamp cooler) exchanges the dog's heat with the coolness of the stored water in the coat to keep them comfortable and ready to run that extra mile.

How does the swamp cooler work?

There are 3 functional layers to the swamp cooler

  • The outer layer blocks the sun by acting like a parasol. This layer is highly breathable to assist the evaporative process and to keep air flowing through the vest to cool the inner layers
  • The middle layer is where the water is held
  • The third layer is a comfortable inner mesh that wicks water from the mid layer to your dogs body to keep them cool
  • Soak it in water

How do I use the swamp cooler?

  • Wring it out and place it on your dog
  • The swamp cooler will act as a parasol for your dog and provide evaporative cooling
  • When it feels dry, soak it in water again
  • If out on an adventure, soak it a stream or pour water directly onto it from your water bottle

  1. Really useful review rating

    We live in Cyprus and already in June the days are too hot for our dog (upward of 30 Celsius). We took him for a mountain walk thinking we wouldn’t need the swamp cooler yet but he began to overheat. We threw it on to him immediately and it helped immensely. I’m not saying it should be used as a life saver, but we definitely won’t be forgetting to put it on him next time as you can see what a huge difference it makes.

    I have a Glen of Imaal terrier and he was feeling the heat during the hot spell recently-bought this coat hoping for the best and it certainly does what it says on the package- no more "panting after or during his walks - an absolute Godsend for both of us- me- worry less during heat waves and my little man carefree walks.

    I bought this for my German Shepherd as he could not stop panting in the heat of last summer, even indoors. My boy was cooled down and we walked in the evenings so he didn't need to wear the Cooler coat outside. It is strong and fits well.
    Paid extra for express delivery and came next day.
    Helpful and good service.
