I have a Brittany, male, and wondering what's a good Dog Vest to get for the cold water, that will actually fit my dog well. Wondering if you guys may have advice on a specific vest and specific size (only because when i look online, there are 6-7 sizes to choose from on some of these confused2 that you like for your Male Brittany. My dog is 1 year old, so will be first time duck hunting this year.

I wont matter if the vest is a little big in some areas. Just don't buy it to small. Most of the time I have to cut the leg openings, so they don't rub under the front legs. I put the vest on the dog, and mark the cuts. After cutting put it back on and see if I need to fine tune it. You can even cut the seams,shorten areas, and sew back together to get a better fit on your dog. I just make sure the new seams face out, so it doesn't rub the dog.

Avery Boaters Parka is what I use for my Brittany. I have a female that is about 32lbs and you can get one in a small. It also has a little extra floatation in the sides for those longer retrieves with a Mallard. I wouldnt want any other one.
