How Cooling Gear Works

How Cooling Gear Works

Laura Meudell
Ruffwear cooling gear is designed to help manage hot temps with the help of evaporative cooling. All you have to do is get the cooling gear wet, and evaporative cooling takes care of the rest. And if it dries while you're out, just re-wet it with a water bottle or a quick dip in a stream to recharge.

HOW DOES EVAPORATIVE COOLING WORK

Dogs don't sweat the same as humans therefore evaporation helps cool the surface temp of your dog.

SWAMP COOLER™ COOLING DOG VEST

The Swamp Cooler™ Vest works great for hiking, running, walking, and camping. In addition to helping keep cool through evaporative cooling, it boosts that cooling by offering the maximum amount of shade and thermal protection of all our cooling gear products.

The material is rated at 50+ UPF protection (blocks 98% of the sun's UV rays) and has a portal so it can be worn over all our harnesses and most other harnesses.

SWAMP COOLER ZIP™ COOLING DOG VEST

The Swamp Cooler Zip™ is designed for running or mountain biking. It has a side-zip closure, so it keeps that cooling effect close to the body and fits  under a harness or pack. 

The Swamp Cooler™ Tech in this style is in the chest panel, and the spandex back panel (rated 50+ UPF) also helps to keep cool through shading.

SWAMP COOLER™ COOLING NECK GAITER


The Swamp Cooler™ Neck Gaiter is an easy way to bring a bit of refreshment on the go. Just give it a soak to tap into our Swamp Cooler™ Tech that uses evaporative cooling to help cool your pup.

It's a versatile accessory that you can use standalone for an everyday cooling piece, or kit with other Swamp Cooler™ gear for an ultra-cool combo
