Jason Fox wrote a review of Ruffwear Portage Float Coat Dog Lifejacket on January 3, 2012
We have had two float coats since summer '10 for our hounds (55 lb Bernese/Husky mix, 50 lb boxer mix: both wear mediums that fit great) and could not have spent the money any better. These coats keep their heads above the water through light rapids, keep them buoyant after long hours in lakes and definitely work well as sleeping pads too! The handles are nice and are robust, I have hauled both them into the canoe or raft many times and never doubted the handle would hold. The yellow color is visible in the water or land when the wander too far. A must have for any pack that heads for the water as the days lengthen!
