    Have an interest in hearing opinions too. Getting ready to order one but can not decide on which one.

    The Avery Boaters Parka or the Cabelas heavy vest, depending on if you are a "zipper person" or a "velcro person."

    One person's (bad) experience with a product probably should not be taken to be an all-telling representation of the product. But I'll tell you honestly, that after just six uses the stitching of the zipper on my Avery Boater's Dog Vest gave out. The pull tab on the zipper actually broke off when putting it on my lab for only the third time requiring me to improvise a makeshift pull tab using a piece of leather lace from my boot (certainly not the end of the world). I acknowledge it's entirely possible that I ended up with the one defective vest in a batch of 100 good vests. Stuff happens- I get that. But from my first hand experience, I would not recommend this vest to a friend.
    Earlier this week I placed an order for a Cabela's 5mm Flotation Vest with the ArmorFlex Chest Protector. Hopefully this one will last longer than six uses.

    After reviews from people looks like the Banded vest may give it a try. Have seen the under armour makes a prototype vest used but cant find it for sale anywhere to know quality.
