  • Two side zippers that allow ventilation to keep you cool. We tested the vest on the hottest California summer day. We were happy to report that our users were comfortable throughout the day because of this and the other features. 
  • The water-resistant fabric has been *impregnated with wax making the vest impervious to water and giving it greater sustainability;
  • Heavy-duty 2-way front zipper. The ability to unzip the bottom of the vest is a feature that is vital for training. You can load up your pockets and use the zipper to give you extra room. If you are bending or sitting a lot during your training, unzipping the bottom of the vest will allow greater comfort and flexibility;

The front-bottom pockets are doubled, with a zipped outer pocket and a hand pocket directly behind it. The back of the vest has a large kangaroo pocket for large items. The inside of the vest has two inner pockets for the storage of your valuables; 
  • The first of its kind - is a removable treat pocket, securely attached to the front of your vest, lined, washable, and closeable with its convenient drawstring toggle; 
  • An elastic outer holder is placed on the right front shoulder and under the armpit. The placement of the elastic band is perfect for holding your reward toy or e-collar remote;

  • Each vest has D-rings to attach your leash handle, keys, or other items on the front and back with Arrak Outdoor's logo carabiner.


Original Vest. The original vest from Arrak Outdoor is built based on the functionality of our popular original jacket.

The vest is made from oxford nylon which makes it durable and resistant to external forces such as branches and dog claws. The vest is fitted with multiple pockets, but most importantly a large and practical back pocket.

If you’re a dog owner who competes and quickly releases the dog from the leash you can put it in the back pocket. If you’re fishing you need to quickly be able to reach the hook box. There’s also a carabiner on the vest where you can attach the net in case you need it quickly.

For name prints we do NOT allow returns for size changes, so please be sure to check the size table thoroughly.

  • Visibility reflexes on the chest and back
