    Default EZ View Jackets

    Has anyone used the EZ View jackets that they sell at
    Golden Lake Garments?

    These are the jackets with the black stripes on the body and arms.

    Do you find the dogs see you better???

    I have one and been using it for over a year. I like it! I take a little ribbing from the folks down here on the looks. Some people ask me if it a referee jacket.

    Janice, look at the add in the Dec RFTN and tell me that a dog sees that further out that an all white jacket. It's greying out even close up.

    Dogs see in black and white regards,

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Howard is correct. Prefer white/black reversable.

    I have one and will be going back to the all white this year. I could not till any difference in the dogs handling and i get to much crap from the gallery to make it worth it, such as hey zebra man and hey ref are you going to let them get away with that aren't you going to throw a flag or something?

    Janice I bought one last winter at the desert trials. I have not been razed when wearing it. I do not know if dogs see it any better than white or black. However it is cooler in warm weather than what I have. If you are atthe trials in Niland this Feb you are welcome to try mine. Just let me know so I have it handy. Marie

    Hi Janice,
    I like to keep it simple. So it is all black or all white depending on the
    back ground.
    Good luck in 2006
