    Used my cabelas club card and got $5 shipping. no tax yet on internet purchase in my state. but at $42 still worth the price IMO.

    I have used the cabelas vest for about 8 years now. No problems with the Velcro at all and it has floatation in it. I just ordered the banded vest for my female since she is 3 sizes smaller so hopefully it will be good.

    The only complaint about the cabelas vest is it is to long in my opinion for males. You can only trim it up so far and it keeps their man parts inside the vest so not very good when they mark territory. Hopefully they made it so you can trim it up shorter since I bought mine.

    Both are good vests and will treat your dog right. Make sure you fit it properly and trim it in the areas that need it. These vests protect the dog from the cold and potential from injuries when their busting ice, jumping into muck ponds, barbed wire - anything you can't see! $42 is cheap when it comes to the dogs safety... Shameless plug- we're innovating the vest now and will have them for next season - we're focusing on better customizable fit and much tougher to resist punctures and ripping- Good luck this fall. You'll be pleased with either!
