What size do you have? Thanks!
I'll dig the Glowdog vest out and see what size it is. I like it because it is very lightweight. I haven't had it fade at all, but I don't wash it very often. I also have a Glowdog bandana that's really old, i probably have had it for 10-12+ years, been washed more and it is still just as reflective as ever.
The Glowdog coat I also have is thicker, several layers instead of single layer like the vest has, but its a small size because I bought it for my terrier. The one I have is black but still highly reflective...

Ruffwear used to make a Lighted Track Jacket that was reflective but also has EL wire built into it that actually lights up on each side. I have one of those but they don't make the lighted version anymore, if anyone is interested in that you might be able to find one online somewhere.

Diane, thanks so much for the offer - love the hot pink! But if it is not reflective, I'll pass on it.

I may just go for a shorter style as they seem to be more readily available. I'm not worried about my dogs getting too hot in a vest, since I'll be using it in the winter.

Nancy, very nice styles in the website you linked - but a bit pricey for me!

So Hmmm, haven't decided yet, still considering different things . . .

I have this one from Leerburg. Rusty doesn't mind it, it's light and allows for movement. We walk alot at night. I also wear a relective band around my waist.

I just tried out an IMPRESSIVE collar. www.glowdoggie.com

Once again more expensive perhaps but what I liked is I can see the dog COMING at me which is not like most reflective items.

Got sent a sample. I like the design a lot. HE sent me the green classic plus. Very nice.

Oooooh! I'd LOVE a lighted collar - but collars get burried in fur, even with Gryff, him having a plush coat.

Might be worth a try, though . . .

I have a flasher that hangs off Rocket's collar, that I got at REI. It can flash two speeds or glow. It's great, lightweight, and still can be seen, even in all this mane, LOL I think it was $6 and the vest was $24. You might check out my link, it's very lightweight and easy to put on. REI carries both (the vest and the flasher, I got both there), and it says they can ship to Canada.

I plan on trying out this collar on some of our long coated dogs (we have 1 GSD, 2 shiloh, and 1 Golden on the team with long coats) to see how it works there.

I checked my Glowdog vest, it's a size Large.

Those Glowdoggie collars reminds me of these:

(they're glow in the dark, not light-up)

and these:

I have this vest. It is highly reflective and easily seen at night. I mainly used it when Phoenix and I lived in our previous house and had to walk a portion of a semi-busy road with a narrow shoulder. I also used a reflective leash and I, myself, wore a reflective vest. The vest is easy to get on and off.
