The fabric I use most often for my working service dog vests is similar to denim but lighter in weight.  It is 100% cotton and, therefore, breathable.  That means the airflow will allow your working service dog to be a bit more comfortable while wearing the vest.  Being 100% cotton means that the vest is not fade/water-resistant/waterproof.  Please note: if you are outdoors in strong sun for more than 4 continuous hours daily, this fabric can fade from the sun.

If you prefer a vest that is
fade/water-resistant/waterproof, it can be made from a durable fabric that's suggested for rugged outdoor use. It is a breathable (like cotton) acrylic fabric that is fade, water, mold, mildew, and stain resistant.

Water-resistant/waterproof fabric is considerably higher in price than the 100% cotton.  For a vest made of this fabric, please add $10.00 to the base vest price.
