I do like the jack and it is the second I have bought. But I will be stitching up the holes on the side of the jacket that are suggested to be used to pick the dog up.
Our first lot of these coats (1st Gen) were brilliant and really helped protect our working dogs, but we couldn’t find any more available to purchase. The 2nd Generation ones have 2 gaps/hand slits built into the coat each side of the zip for picking up the dog, where we don’t like these at all and will have to sew them shut, as we can see these getting hooked up on branches and brambles etc. They are a really bad idea! / addition to these coats.
Well made and thought through! Tested in a local lake and did the trick helping me hoist her into the boat with a dummy duck. Will try for real on the Wash marshes soon!
