Has anyone used the Drake Helping Hands Dog vest? 5mm neoprene and a Cordura chest protector.

I've used an Avery Boater's Dog Parka on my Boykin for the past two years but the velcro cover for the zipper is tearing away from the vest even though it hasn't see heavy use. As for as I know, the Avery and Drake vests are the only ones produced in sizes appropriate for a Boykin.

Thanks for any info.

I've been through 2 of them. Both have been a dissapointment.

Mine have been durable and dependable. I haven't had any problems.
