If you’re walking your dog when it’s dark outside or want to spot it easily in the big backyard, you should definitely check out the Noxgear LightHound. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Noxgear started producing this LED dog vest that illuminates the dog with reflectivity and fluorescent color.
It’s really easy to put it on and adjust. Just slide it over the head and secure the buckles around the chest. Depending on how big your dog is, you can get it in three sizes- medium, large and extra large. LightHound has six light modes and can shine in eight colors. To select the one you prefer, just press the button located on the vest.
The vest is made from military grade Cordura fabric and 3M Reflective bias. This makes it extremely lightweight and durable. Don’t worry if it suddenly starts to rain, LightHound is completely waterproof. You can even put it in the washing machine when you want it cleaned, just make sure to remove the lights.
LightHound is USB chargeable and can last for over 12 hours. The lights are located on the dog’s back, which means they won’t flash directly into the dog’s eyes. It’s perfect for walks, camping, hunting and all sort of other outdoor activities. LightHound not only allows you to see the dog. It’ll keep the dog safe from cars since it’s very easy to spot the light. The vest doesn’t have a leash attachment, so you’ll have to use a collar or a harness under the vest.
