It’s important that dogs are visible at all times when their owners take them out on walks. Excellent visibility is crucial for having safe morning and evening walks with your dog. High visibility is even more important if you’re out in an area where your dog can easily get lost, like an open space, when you’re out at night on camping and/or hiking trips, or even when going hunting.
This is why having a high-visibility gadget like an illuminated dog harness/vest that lights up and makes your dog visible is so useful. While dog collars that light up are pretty common, they can easily get lost under your dog’s scruff, which basically makes illuminated dog vests a much better and more visible solution.
Noxgear is a leader in developing high visibility gear for running, cycling and the outdoors. The company is proud of all of its products and of what it represents. Its name, Noxgear, is based on the Latin word for night: nox.
One of Noxgear’s latest releases is the Noxgear LightHound, a revolutionary high-visibility vest for dogs that’s great for when you’re taking your furry friend out for a walk while surrounded by the darkness of the night. If you need some light to walk your dog around safely, the Noxgear LightHound is definitely your answer.
To put it simply, the Noxgear LightHound is an illuminated, reflective and fluorescent dog vest that’s equipped with LED Fiber Optics.
The vest features a durable design that’s built to last. It’s made of military grade cordura fabric (commonly found in military wear and performance apparel), meaning it’s meant for action. This fabric also makes the vest lightweight and breathable, making the vest weigh only 3.0 oz, which means that dogs won’t even know they’re wearing it. This material also makes the vest rainproof and perfect for all seasons, making the vest capable of withstanding hot, cold, rain, or snow, and ready for adventure.
The vest also offers 360° retroreflective fluorescence. The vest was also built with construction grade 3M Scotchlite reflective material, making it retro-reflective and fluorescent.
The Noxgear LightHound vest can be adjusted to fit any dog. The vest comes equipped with two novel cam buckles at the neck and chest that allow for maximum adjustments around your dog’s body.
When the company designed the vest, they also kept in mind that dogs are known for their love to roll around the floor, whether it’s grass or dirt. So, Noxgear designed the Noxgear LightHound vest to be machine washable, meaning that if you’re dog gets overly-excited while wearing the vest and decides to jump into the first mud pool he sees, that won’t be a problem.
As said before, the vest is equipped with LED Fiber Optics that are capable of providing always bright illumination. Unlike other LED products that fade during use, the Noxgear LightHound dog vest maintains maximum brightness, making your dog incredibly easy to see even when surrounded by pitch-black darkness.
This allows for 360° Illumination – the vest is capable of producing 40 lumens of visible light from its two built-in CREE LEDs, which are piped around the entire body with flexible fiber optics. This will make your dog visible from over a mile in any direction. These LEDs can operate in Multicolor Flashing or Solid Color Modes, offering dog owners multiple selectable multicolor flashing modes that are inspired by visual science. All colors are included, so if you or your dog have a favorite color, it’s safe to say you’ll have it there.
Lastly, the vest is also USB Rechargeable, coming equipped with a rechargeable battery that offers up to 12 hours of battery life when fully charged.
The lightweight Noxgear LightHound dog vest lets you light up your pup with unrivaled illumination, reflectivity and fluorescent color. Whether it rains or shines, its attention-grabbing multicolor flashing modes will keep your dog visible at all times. This extremely durable vest is ready for action, proving to be the perfect dog apparel for walks, hikes, camping and hunting trips, backyard fun and a wide variety of out of doors excursions.
If you’re interested in getting it, the Noxgear LightHound dog vest is currently discounted during Noxgear’s FALL SALE, priced at $50 (was priced at $70 before, saving you $20). You can get the Noxgear LightHound dog vest at Noxgear’s website, on this page.
