Hands down the best vest ever built
January 27, 2024
This vest takes about 5 minutes to put together to properly fit your dog. If done correctly, it's the best fitting vest you have ever seen. The warmth and protection it provides is second to none!!!! Mo-Marsh hit a home run with this one. As a professional dog trainer and avoid hunter, I highly recommend this vest!!!!
  • Warmth and protection.

Best dog vest on the market
November 25, 2023
This is by far the best dog vest on the market from THE BEST gun dog supplier out there. Super fast delivery. This vest is so adjustable for any dog's body build.
  • Very adjustable
  • Quality construction

I have two Chessies and they both adapted really quick. It isn't super cold yet but it did keep them both warm and protected so far.

Exactly what I was looking for
November 8, 2023
The MOmarsh Versa vest fits and works exactly as described on the website. It is easy to fit to each dog, and once fitted, very easy to put on with the zipper. My two GSP puppies are still jumping in the river, even though temps are dropping, and I have had no problems with the vest going in and out of the water. Just hang it to dry after going out and it is ready for the next adventure in the field.
  • Fits great, looks great, easy to put on and off.
  • It is perfect for fall, winter and spring in the Northeast. It may be a little too warm to wear in late spring and summer, but I really don't need it then.

Good Vest, Terrible Zipper
November 1, 2023
Bought this vest during the summer. Fitted it to my American Lab, 90lbs, everything fit great. Materials were all nice and thick. Dog is trained to stay still, so wasn't a problem getting it adjusted to fit him. Took it off and put it away since it was hot outside. Now, it is November and cold, so I thought I would get hom swimming in the vest before duck season. Went to put it on him, still fit snug, but not too tight. I put the zipper on the track, started pulling, and Crack, zipper fell apart in my hand. I was barely pulling on it. Plastic zipper is junk! The rest of the vest is great, but that doesn't matter if you can't zip it up!
  • Materials other than zipper are good

Momarsh Versavest and huntstand.
April 23, 2023
Absolutely great vest and stand. My lab is 105 lbs. I purchased the extra large panel separately and am glad I did. It worked as described. He’s large and very deep chested. The expansion panel worked perfectly. There’s tons of adjustability, it’s comfortable on him. From the first time it was on him it was natural and he had no fitting issues. He retrieves comfortably with no rubbing/no cutting. Can’t say enough about this vest. The final hunt huntstand is awesome as well. Well made and sturdy. It seems comfortable as he will jump up on it by himself if it happens to be set up in the garage from a previous training.
  • Vest and stand, well made sturdy quality products at fair prices for what is received. I know the best is a bit on the high side but I also firmly believe the quality of it will far outlast and be more versatile then the more inexpensive ones. The chest guard may not be as wide but it does cover and protect the vital areas while not causing any rubbing or require trimming. Nothing but positive about the stand.
  • None.

This was exact product I had been searching for my dog. He has thin fur and would always get jabbed by debris in the water. The orange makes it easy to spot him through the woods and water. Vest is heavy duty and doesn’t look/feel cheap.

Excellent vest
February 20, 2023
Very happy with this purchase. Everything that I have purchased from Gun Dog Supply is top quality. This vest protects my girl in the timber and keeps her warm on those cold mornings.
  • Insulates and protects. Doesn't hinder natural movement or pursuit whatsoever. My dog gets excited when we put this on her.

Great Vest!
February 2, 2023
We have a 7 month old Weimaraner that is 81 pounds or more by now and still growing. Getting a vest that would fit him now and when he is full grown seemed impossible. Then I happened across Gun Dog Supply. They had exactly what we needed to protect him from the cold and brush depending on if he is fishing with Daddy or hunting eastern Oregon. This vest is like it says, fully adjustable, easy to put together and not too bad to put on a wiggly puppy! The information on the web-site was informative and very helpful. Thank you for a great product and offering items for the working dog!
  • Well made
  • easily adjustable
  • neat side panels
  • he looks good in it!

Versa vest for dogs with big neck and little waist.
January 25, 2023
It's not as easy to fit as they say but still fits better than other vests, with my Chessie the velcro gets hair in it. The panels don't seem to fit the D ring that well but not a showstopper with my dog that doesn't break and need to be tethered. My dog hag a very big neck and chest and trim waist like body builder, other vest are too tight in the neck and chest and too big in the gut.
  • Fits great.
  • Less prone to getting sticks and such stuck in the vest.
  • Hair gets in velcro.
Assembly Headache

Takes a while to get a good fit, but well worth it
December 15, 2022
It takes a moment to put everything together, and then to make the final adjustments to fit your dog. What you get though is a perfectly fitting vest. It's easy enough to change the size as your dog grows too. Our standard poodle is 8 months old and still growing, so getting a vest that can fit him as he grows was important. The interchangeable panels are a bonus so we can change between waterfowl and upland hunting.
  • Ability to make adjustments for a perfect fit
  • Seems like solid construction, should last
  • Interchangeable panels allow one vest for multiple pursuits.
  • Takes a little time put everything together
  • Dog might not appreciate getting pulled on as the final adjustments are made to the velcro
By Huck
Great versatile vest
November 25, 2022
Due to the universal fit, no cutting is required and you can really get a good fit for your dog body shape. The hook and loop design is very rugged. Just got back from ducking hunting in Arkansas and would highly recommend this vest. Its not the cheapest but you get what you pay for with this one.
  • Infinite adjustability, but maintains snug fit.
  • Great handle to pull dog up with.
  • The hook and loop is so good that its a little hard to readjust once you get it attached, but hey, that is kinda a good thing!

Easy to adjust and get a proper fit. GSPs are thin and long and this works great. No chaffing
  • Easy to adjust and fit proper

One size does fit most
October 26, 2022
The vest is well-made and does fit my 62 pound lab. I found the Velcro to be super sticky and difficult to disassemble, Botha vest and the camo panels. The instruction video makes it look easy – I didn’t find it so. Looking forward to using it when my dog retrieves birds this fall and winter.
  • Adjustable fit. Multiple camo and blaze panels.
  • The assembly instructions could be more complete.

Impressive design!
August 27, 2022
I bought this for my 9 month old lab. The design really allows for a custom fit. Just keep altering the fit and you will see how well this vest fits. I’ve adjusted it about 13 times already and although that process is tedious, it’s well worth it. I also like the back handle and D link. The thickness of the panels is impressive and I’m looking forward to bringing her out in the upcoming months.
  • Adjustable design
  • Quality material
  • The Velcro is mother strong hahaha
  • The zipper string came off after about the 6th adjustment but I expected that. Most strings that attach to zippers tend to break. Either way that main zipper components are durable.

Outstanding Dog Vest for Any Size Dog!
August 2, 2022
Great instructional video to show you exactly how to fit it well to any size dog. The Velcro is the strongest I’ve ever seen so the camo panels are very firmly attached. Love the handle and leash D-ring for running with my dog while I ride my bike too to exercise him. Excited to use product in the duck blind this fall!
  • Quality material
  • Fits great
  • All size dogs
  • Good pattern
  • Pricey but worth it!

Good but difficult to assemble
February 16, 2022
It definitely kept my dog warmer, and it is exceptionally sturdy. The “but” come with the difficulty in assembly and adjustment. The various parts are held together with Velcro pads some of which are very large. This is the reason it is sturdy. It is also the reason that it is somewhat difficult to assemble and adjust. Thus is especially true if you decide to adjust it after the camouflage or hunter orange pads are installed. You will swear a blue streak getting them off, and the vest can’t be adjusted until you do so.
  • Warm and sturdy
  • Very difficult to adjust after camouflage or visibility pads are installed.

Momarsh Versa Vest with X chest plate
January 20, 2022
Not sold on the product yet. I like that you can change the size of the vest. But I really want to see how long it will even last. It being 90% Velcro just worries me.
  • Fits a 100 pound muscle up Chesapeake bay retriever
  • Made up of 90% Velcro

A great vest!
January 18, 2022
This vest was so easy to get a good fit on our Korthals Griffon. He has a deep chest so we wanted something that would fit closely to his body to provide protection & warmth. This vest does just that! The velcro is very secure once placed, I didn’t have to worry about it loosening if he gets real active. The orange panels are also very visible which is great for when we’re out shed hunting or just hiking around the woods.
  • Form-fitting, good quality Velcro, visibility with orange outer panels, sturdy materials for protection & warmth.
  • No cons on the vest, just took the dog a while to get conditioned to wearing it. Working with him more frequently before going out to the field should help that, it did for us!

Improved the D ring.
January 11, 2022
This is the best dog vest I have ever bought. Tried most of them and this one is the best. The vest is so easily adjustable. The dog puts on or takes off some pounds and it’s a simple side panel adjustment. They also beefed up the D ring which was the first thing to wear out on my previous vest from last year. No chafing or rubbing anywhere on the dog from this vest.

Awesome vest
January 4, 2022
Couldn’t be happier with the vest and the service. Accidentally ordered two and noticed it on a Sunday. Emailed and Steve replied right away and corrected it prior to shipping. Vest fits my 5 month old GSP perfectly and will be able to adjust easily and don’t see him outgrowing it. First time ordering and will be my go-to place for gun dog supplies.
  • Fit and durability along with interchangeable camo to orange panels.
  • None.

Christmas was a hit !!
January 2, 2022
Both of our pups got new vests for Christmas and being able to adjust them to fit just right was great! They are both 9 months old so they will need to be adjusted as they grow!
  • They were both able to swim with no rubbing!

Quality construction and zipper. I have used it several times and it is standing up well. Velcro holds straps and camo panels in place well. The best feature is the separate chest expansion which made it a perfect fit for my Chessie.
  • Solid construction
  • Availability of chest expansion panel

Product too stiff when put together. Like putting two boards on my dog. She couldn't move freely. Sent back for a refund and ordered an Avery neoprene vest which is a lot more user-friendly.

Outstanding and versatile!
December 2, 2021
This vest is outstanding! My dog loves it. She’s a pretty lean-built dog and gets cold easily. She’s worn it every hunt day since opening day. I’ve hunted her in multiple types of cover from western Oregon to eastern Idaho and she is always well camouflaged. Once the initial fit is made, adjustments are easy. The only thing I don’t like too well is the D-ring could be stouter and the paracord handle pulled out. Simple fixes, but expected better out of an otherwise very well-built and sturdy vest.
  • Keeps dogs warm, good protection, good camo pattern.
  • D-ring and paracord handler could be sewn in better.
Momarsh Vest
November 30, 2021
I tried this vest because of its claim to being adjustable enough to fit any dog. My black lab has a slight build and I had been unable to find a best that fit her properly. I was able to fit her perfectly with this vest. It took a little time and effort but the fit is great. She has hunted in it about 10 times so far and the vest still looks and fits like new. Great quality. I would buy another!
  • Great quality. Super strong velcro. Excellent fit and protection.
  • The included fitting instructions could be a bit more detailed.

It took only 10 minutes of both my wife and I to properly fit this vest on our small, athletic golden retriever. I have 5 vests from previous dogs and this is the only one we could make to fit her.
  • very adjustable
  • A little heavier and stiffer than I am used to but dog doesn't seem to mind.

Great Vest and even better Customer Service
September 22, 2021
It is a great vest that provides protection and warmth for my dog. easily adjustable to custom fit to my Pudelpointer. After 3 times of use the chest piece started to delaminate. I filled out a form on Momarsh's website and a week later I had a new and improved chest pad that will not delaminate. I could not be happier. In my opinion it is a great value for the money and should last for years of hunting.

We have tried many vests for our dog (a Cesky Fousek) but the fit was always too loose in some areas and too tight in others. the flexibility to custom fit this vest worked out perfectly.

It’s well built and the Velcro is incredibly strong. However, I have an 80+ pound Curly Coated retriever and this vest is way too small. I purchased the bigger chest piece which doesn’t really work either - separate review

  • Much too small for tall dogs

new chest protector
March 26, 2021
My dog Shylo is a yellow lab and weighs 42 lbs. She is 11 months old. I spent some time looking for a chest protector and I purchased this one. The main reason I chose it was it had a video to watch how to use it. It was hard to believe the one fits all part. But I can see now it probably will. The velcro they use to make this chest protector is incredible. After you get it on the dog the first time you can make little adjustments to make the chest protector perfectly fit your dog. I would highly recommend this chest protector.
  • quick and easy set up
  • you can get different color panels for different needs
  • nice looking

Kind of confusing to assemble out of box. Had to watch tutorial video several times. My young pup still freaks out when I go to put it in him, he wiggles around a lot, but with time and repetitiveness this should go away. Once on him dog doesn’t seem to mind wearing it and to me has a different mind set like he knows it’s time for business and not play. Looks really sharp on him and seen people make double takes how flashy and nice he looks wearing the vest.
  • Well made, interchangeable color options, adjustment as dog grows. Will protect dogs vulnerable spots on body
  • Confusing to assemble out of box, dog will struggle to get it out on him

It fits my skinny Dutchie
March 17, 2021
This can fit a wide variety of dogs - it fit my skinny, deep chested dutch shepherd just fine. She has little body fat and this adds enough flotation plus protects her chest when she tears through the muck and underbrush. It doesn't restrict her motion - she has a very wide range of motion of her legs and back and this vest doesn't interfere.
  • Fit, quality, heavy duty velcro stays put,
  • none so far

Best vest we've found yet
March 15, 2021
My 70lb chessie has a really deep, narrow chest and a small waist. We have had a hard time finding vests because everything that fits his chest is way too big everywhere else. This was perfect since it's a custom fit. Other vests we've tried also have a pretty wide chest piece that rubs under his arms and this one is narrow enough that we don't have to worry about chafing. Just bought another for his little sister!

Great fitment and easy to put on
January 29, 2021
Overall this is the easiest dog vest to put on my dog that I have used. It is a great vest for the serious duck hunter.
  • It fits well, is easy to put on the dog and is of good quality like all Momarsh products.
  • The Velcro on the vest will pick up grass and vegetation debris, which does not hose off easily. Also, I have noticed some cracking in the vinyl at the bottom of the chest piece. My dog hunts a lot and goes hard so sharp sticks are a hazard. I presume the cracking kept a stick from piercing my dog, if not it could be a quality control issue.

Smaller than expected
January 28, 2021
This is a high quality vest. All materials have been chosen wisely. grab handle and zipper are very tough. the velcro should go the distance as well. My only complaint is its size. Its quite small. I don't think it would be appropriate for most retrievers Ive seen in my life. I have a 95lb chessie and its nowhere near fitting around him. He'll need the larger chest panel. But at that point, Im not sure the side panels are even going to fit around him sufficiently to actually keep him warm. I just thought it would be much bigger based on the 35-100lb fitment claim. absolutely no way this is fitting on a 100lb dog.
  • great materials. awesome design.
  • way too small for a lot of retrievers Ive seen

Needs another chest panel and is bulky
January 26, 2021
My dog is a 90 lb. Lab. The chest panel it came with was to small. The velcro on the included panel would only allow for maybe an inch of attachment. I didn't find on Gun Dog any other option. How ever Higdon Outdoors maker of the vest has a large chest panel available. I order it and it was to big. When fitted to my dog there were large areas in the chest portion where the velcro had nothing to attach to. I think they need an in between panel. Higdon did allow me to return the large panel still ended up costing me $14.00 in shipping. After all that it is bulky and heavy. In the right circumstance I would recommend it.
  • I have never seen velcro as strong as this. When on a dog it fits I don't think it would ever come apart.
  • To bulky and heavy.
By Tim
Good product
January 23, 2021
Better construction then the 3 different vest I have had had for my dogs.
  • Highly adjustable,better protection for you pet.
  • A little time consuming getting vest adjusted to fit your dog
