The most important feature for us was buckles, not velcro. If you have a long haired dog, or one that likes to run and jump through brush, velcro will tear apart under your dogs belly. I didn't realize that when I bought this, that they weren't actual buckles, but more of a hook-style. It's still better than velcro, but why didn't Ruffwear just make them buckles?! One nice thing is that the velcro around the side adjustments wraps around to keep the un-used straps from flying around. There is a hook on each side of the vest.
Charlie tests out the Ruffwear Track Jacket. He is a 70 lb Golden Lab, and wears a size L/XL.
Side view of the Track Jacket. You can see that the jacket fits securely around his belly and around his neck. There are three spots where you can place a beacon light for extra visibility at night. There are also two reflective prints paralleling each side. The jacket itself is made of a light fabric, not plastic, so it is machine washable. Wash in cold water, then hang dry.
The mesh around the neck is flexible allowing for maximum movement of your dog, no matter how active they are.
