Description

Made in the USA with premium, water resistant, nylon fabric. Features reflective trim for visibility at night, reinforced seams, and edge binding for extra durability. Smooth, one-piece backing means there are no seams to irritate the dog. Webbing loops on the inside of vest are designed to let you replace the belly strap, or fit the vest to other harness styles. Our metal quick-release buckle is very easy to use! Unlike plastic buckles, it is easy to open and secure, even by those with limited hand strength. Machine washable (delicate cycle in a mesh bag is recommended); lay flat to air dry.

Have a BLD harness? This cape/vest is specifically designed to be compatible with your harness. It lays on the dog’s back behind the harness saddle and does not interfere with the function of your harness, or overburden your dog. Velcro tabs attach the cape/vest to the d-rings on your harness. Flat, low-profile design does not catch on your legs as you walk next to your dog. If you have a BLD leather guide handle, we recommend adding key-rings or a clip to the harness d-rings to allow a little more space for the cape and guide handle to attach–just ask us if you need them.

    Great addition to my harness! I like the extra visibility the cape provides and find the pocket perfect for stashing extra doggie bags, my keys, cash or cards.

    This is a great accessory. I have a red one and I bought it so my dog would be more visible, he is black and the harness is black. There is never a question about “is he a service dog?”

    Regarding the strap. I don’t find it necessary to use it. I just stuffed it in the pocket.

    I loved this cape, my only complaint is the lack of colors we could use. I used the red until the color just drove me nuts. The quality couldn’t be beaten though and I was happy to pass it on to a handler who loved the color.

    I was worried about the quality as well, however it was lovely and very well done. Easy to remove from the harness if you don’t want to have to clip an extra strap on. The only issue I had with this cape was the strap was too large for my dog and hung loosely. Not too loose but loose enough that it was noticeable. But the snap was easy to unsnap, the pockets are lovely and very easy for fitting my two 7-day pill holders and my inhaler. However, the more the pockets hold the tighter the strap gets but if you only hold a card or flat items and your dog has a smaller stomach it’s a bit loose. This was on the tightest setting for me.

    I LOVE my cape. Everyone knows what Maple is at a first glance. I can store my cash, credit card and license easily along with poop bags and spare harness screws. It’s easy to see and easy to use.

    Ours is the blue. The reflective strips mean she’s visible for cars at night, and the blue really stands out well against her brindle coat.
    I’m well practiced at keeping the stuff in the pockets weight balanced. Very happy with the metal clip, plastic ones get ‘moody’ and they break too easily for me.

    Dana and the Namaste Dogs

    I was skeptical until I got our harness vest and I am thrilled with the build quality, the attention to detail and it is perfect for us in the summer or on light days when we only need the essentials and to make sure we are visible as a working team.
