Let's say it is +25 to +30 celcius. What is a reasonable estimated length of time that this would keep a black lab cool?
ULTRA PAWS RESPONSE: If you are just using the coat and Ice packs probably only 30-60 minutes, however the ability to add water to the surface of the coat would allow you to use evaporative cooling and could prolong the ability of the coat to provide cooling as long as you can keep adding water.Unknown

I have only used the cool vest once and the big test will come this weekend when I head up to sage grouse country. I ran my dog in pretty hot conditions while ridding my horse. The trail I used is exactly the same each time I ride. My dog typically gets over heated around the half way point during my ride. I place the Ice packs in the pouch and I soaked the vest in cold water before the ride , it made a big difference in my dogs performance. He was able to hunt/run the whole ride without taking a break.
The fit is great also, didn't bother him at all.
I highly recommend this product for dogs that over heat easily. Unknown
