Dog's Name: Ira

Date of Review: 7/12/2016

We kick up our paws in: Colombia

My canine companion(s): Weimaraner

Awesome

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I wasn't sure about the size when I got it but it turned out perfectly. She's 1 year old and the medium size was absolutely great. The coat works amazingly! We all love it!

Dog's Name: Gracie

Date of Review: 6/29/2016

We kick up our paws in: Pennsylvania

My canine companion(s): American Staffordshire Terrier X

Cute and sturdy

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I love the vest, but I think the sizing is a little off. I ordered the small (Gracie has a 17.5" neck and 21.5" length) which should have been perfect for her and even a little big around the neck area. It's short on her back and snug around her neck. Make sure you do very accurate measuring before ordering!

Date of Review: 6/3/2016

We kick up our paws in: New Hampshire

My canine companion(s): Am staffs and greyhounds

super coat

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I bought this for our pitty to wear when hiking in fall/early winter. I wanted something that would protect her from the elements but was not as heavy as a full on insulated winter coat. I had originally tried the cloud chaser, but the fit was off in her chest. This one is perfect---the armhole/belly band design gives her much more freedom in the chest than the sleeves in the cloud chaser. It is probably a little heavier than I was looking for but don't think that will be a super big problem. It is well made and the color ( I bought it in larkspur) is great. Looking forward to lots of seasons with it.

My canine companion(s): Brittany Spaniel

Does the job

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We got this as a layering coat for nights around the campfire. As the weather transitioned we realized we didn't need a heavy coat but we needed something to keep him from shivering at night. He seems to love it and it seems to be pretty comfortable. On chilly nights he wears it all night with his sleeping bag.

Dog's Name: Bubba Jeb

Date of Review: 4/9/2016

We kick up our paws in: Central Virginia & Beyond

My canine companion(s): Lab Mix

Excellent

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I bought this jacket for Jeb at the beginning of winter & it has been perfect. It has held up well on our twice-daily trail runs, through a few blizzards & over 4 ft. of snow, rain, and mud. It keeps Jeb warm and dry while allowing him to run and play comfortably. As he is a service dog he is with me 24 hours of each day. This jacket helps to keep him dry and clean when taking walks breaks at work and being out for errands. I am able to take him into the office and shops, post office, etc. without fear of his dripping water on rainy days. It holds up to his running through the underbrush, woods, and over & through creeks on our trail runs. The jacket is easy to clean and dries quickly.

Dog's Name: Molly

Date of Review: 2/12/2016

We kick up our paws in: PA

My canine companion(s): Manchester Terrier (?maybe?)

Impressive

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Purchased the K-9 Overcoat to use for damp or snowy conditions...and in combination with the fleece Climate Changer for super cold walk days. My dog is likely a muttigree, but she looks like a Manchester Terrier. Her waist is small in comparison to her deep chest. I did measure carefully, and she weighs in at about 50 pounds...the "small" fits her really well. I am very happy with my purchase. On a fun note, it also fits my mother-in-law's 7-month-old (38ish pound) Standard Poodle that we're babysitting, too. Win-win!

My canine companion(s): Labrador

Excellent

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Easy on-off, protection from rain/ snow for frequent "rest stops/exercise" during our multi state travel in Jan. Slipped easily over the Ruffwear Fleese jacket when temps. Dropped. Streamline, loved the covered side clips. We haven't' even disappointed in a Ruffwear product.

We kick up our paws in: Mount Vernon

My canine companion(s): Belgan Shepherd/Heeler

great

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Cedar is 15 years old now, but still thinks she is a mountain climber. This coat fits her well and gives her that extra warmth she needs as an older dog. She seems to feel "special" when she wears it too! I like the profile of this jacket, it stays put as we hike out and about.

Dog's Name: Lakota

Date of Review: 2/3/2016

We kick up our paws in: Port Angeles, WA

My canine companion(s): Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler

My favorite coat

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I love this coat because it's low profile, doesn't look dorky on my dog. I got the brown color and so it kind of gives my dog a country look when we're out with the horses. It keeps her clean and moderately dry (wish it was more water proof) all while having a luxurious feel of the inner fleece insuring my girl is warm in acclimate weather. Im asked almost daily where I get my dogs gear, always referring them back to here!

Dog's Name: Zorro

Date of Review: 2/2/2016

We kick up our paws in: Midwest

My canine companion(s): Great Dane/Pit Bull mix

Except sizing we love it!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Overall, I love this product. It is very good quality and sits far up underneath so my boy doesn't get it dirty while going to the bathroom. The sizing variation between the M and the L is huge so that made it a hard decision. My dog is odd sized and all of ruffwear's jackets are way too long on my stocky boy but that doesn't reflect the product itself. Buckles are very small if you have limited dexterity though.

Dog's Name: Sam

Date of Review: 2/1/2016

We kick up our paws in: Pueblo, Colorado

My canine companion(s): Standard Poodle

Sturdy and Fits So Well!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I typically keep Sam groomed in a field cut, not too short in the winter, but short enough so I can removed burrs, seeds, and debris easily. This coat has been the perfect thing for our super cold days hiking, x-country skiing, and snowshoeing. It once adjusted it fits beautifully!

Dog's Name: Jilly

Date of Review: 1/28/2016

We kick up our paws in: Washington, DC

My canine companion(s): Irish Setter

Great Quality, Perfect Fit

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

With Jilly's deep chest and long feathering, it has been difficult to find a coat that fits her properly and does not get her hair all stuck in velcro. This coat (a large, for our 60 lb girl) was the perfect fit, and the buckles were so much easier than velcro - plus no hair loss! Jilly has been wearing it since we put it on - even while she sleeps - so we know she finds it comfortable. The warm fleece on the inside plus the water-resistant shell makes this the perfect fall-to-spring overcoat! Thanks, Ruffwear!!

Dog's Name: Murphy

Date of Review: 1/23/2016

We kick up our paws in: Plymouth, MA

My canine companion(s): Vizsla

Great for hiking

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Second season with this coat. Murph has two different coats the other being more canvas outer and flannel inner. We seem to go with this coat because it stays on him better and does a good job protecting his skin in the bramble. (short haired dog) It seems to provide good warmth as well. We were out hiking in sub 30 degree the other day and I stopped to have lunch. Murph who loves to be under blankets and seems to shiver easily was comfortable enough to lay down and take a snooze. Great jacket for warmth and protection. If it got a bit colder I'd think about an under layer to go with this jacket.

Dog's Name: Danny

Date of Review: 1/22/2016

We kick up our paws in: Bothell, WA

My canine companion(s): Basenji Mix & Labrador Retreiver

Love it! Great Jacket

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I love this jacket! However, my Basenji/Chihuahua mix is between a size XXS & XS. My dog is about 10 lbs. and has a large barrel chest. So, I tried both sizes. The XXS was to tight, and the XS was to long and big on him. My Labrador has Ruffwear's Quinzee jacket and that fits great on him. Sadly, I had to return this jacket since it didn't fit my Basenji mix really well. However, the quality is great and I'll keep using Ruffwear products. They are wonderful!

Dog's Name: Matty and Orion

Date of Review: 1/10/2016

We kick up our paws in: Downingtown, PA

My canine companion(s): German Shorthaired Pointers

Perfection

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I cannot recommend this coat enough. I have purchased many dog coats over the years and none are built to fit like the K-9 overcoat. I just love how the buckles are all built in and concealed. Getting the perfect fit for each of my pups took seconds and because of the build of the coat - buckles not velcro - the coats aren't going anywhere until I want them to come off. My younger gsp wears his to daycare and it holds up beautifully to the wear and tear it gets there all day long. The coats are worth every, single penny. This is hands-down one of the best purchases I've made in years for my dogs. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.

Dog's Name: Sara and Ro

Date of Review: 1/9/2016

We kick up our paws in: Clarksville, TN

My canine companion(s): Boxer and Pittie

Exactly what I needed

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I bought two of these, one for my boxer and one for my Pittie. Both of which are cold natured but insist on their daily walks. The coats keep them both warm without the static build up that their old coats did (I actually stopped using them after my boxer got shocked one day when I was taking it off) and they look nice on. I especially like the way they fit on the underside so it doesn't rub the inside of their legs. Well done Ruff Wear.

We kick up our paws in: Lancaster, Pennsylvania

My canine companion(s): Australian Cattle Dog

Awesome!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I agree with the other 5 star ratings, this jacket is just awesome. I have a very lean 35 pound cattle dog that used to shiver while we were hiking in PA winter temps. I ordered a size small and it fits her perfectly, is easy to adjust, and keeps her warm and dry. The outer material is so durable and has stood up to many frisbee rescues in thorn bushes and seems to be a great wind breaker. When I take the jacket off of her, the fur that is not covered is pretty chilly while her core that is under the jacket is warm and dry. Excellent product overall.

My canine companion(s): Austrailian Multi-gen Labradoodle

K-9 overcoat - Durable, Easy on/off, pet-tolerable!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Have had two iterations of the k-9 overcoat. They are super durable, hold up well to dog-wrestling, snow, rain, branches etc. Our dogs wait at the door to put these on before long treks in the woods, romps at the lake and running around the yard. I recommend as the coats keep the dogs out longer, keep their fur from matting in the snow, and keep them warm without overheating. They wear them when the temps or WC drop below about 28F.

I had the dogs out in the first snow of the season today and they looked so dapper I snapped a few pictures. The coats fit well, they repelled the wet snow, they didn't twist, they were incredibly easy to get on two fussy older girls. I am very happy with my purchase which was their Christmas present this year!!

Fantastic coat

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This coat is durable, protected her from both rain and wind and every time I put my hand under the jacket she was toasty warm. A recent operation led to a closely shaved abdomen, and I feel like this coat kept her from getting chilled her first days home. Its yet to be cold enough for her to use it for prolonged periods of time. Love the quality!!

Love it

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Our boxer Rhodesian has a short tight coat - he starts getting cold when it drops to 60. We use the coat when we hike in cooler weather and when we visit family in New England. The fleece lining is warm and soft which he loves and so far the durable outer layer seems to be holding up very well. We have been very impressed!

My canine companion(s): Catahoula mix

Durable and Warm

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I bought this jacket last year for my Catahoula and it kept him warm and dry while ice fishing and running in deep snow. Cabo has a short tight coat so he really needs another warm layer during our winter adventures! The fabric and construction really holds up during ruff play with buds too! I like that the buckles are covered and have some give. It helps the coat fit snug around his chest. I'm super happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone! I may have to try out the Quinzee next! Thank you for crafting great gear for great dogs!

My canine companion(s): Vizsla

Fabulous!!!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I'm not a Hunter, nor a Pro, Semi Pro Athlete. I am however a 60 year young Grandma with an adopted 3 year old Vizsla named Judah. I have never bought a dog coat in my life, and was unsure of how to proceed to get one that would work for Judah. This coat is amazing!! We have nature trails that we walk/run every morning before we come to work. He has crossed streams, and through heavy brush with no problems. Judah's 55bls, and the Medium fits like a charm. I carefully read all the reviews because of his breed we were worried about the fit. Vizsla's have a long tapered neck that gets heavier towards the shoulders. This coat seem to be just find. Nice to get a quality product, as they seem to be far and few.

Dog's Name: Sako

Date of Review: 12/6/2015

We kick up our paws in: Utah

My canine companion(s): German Shorthaired Pointer

Excellent!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I got this coat for my German Shorthaired Pointer to protect him from cuts and scrapes while on the farm, out hiking, etc. Sako has an extremely deep chest with small back end which is tricky to fit correctly. The design of this overcoat is the best I've seen - the dog's head goes through the main hole and the chest plate goes underneath and clips in on the sides. The clips are hidden so they don't get caught on anything. The clips are on adjustable straps and there is some elastic to give Sako room to stretch and run without being constrained. The construction is excellent - material is sturdy and will protect him. Fleece lining is perfect for the mild Utah winters. Sako is around 3 feet tall, 62# and his chest measures 31". The Medium fits him perfectly. Thank you for designing a quality product that will protect Sako while he's being his active, crazy self.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This is the best all-around coat that I could ask for Clyde. Extremely easy to get on-off once your initial fitting is done. This coat is durable enough that I would not be surprised if it lasted for a decade. This coat fits great and is warm. It is not going to be the warmest of all Ruffwear coats, but all-around versatility, durability, and ease of getting on/off, you will not be disappointed!

Quality + Cozy

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We frequently take our hounds backpacking and hiking in the Appalachians and love these jackets because they are durable, warm, and aren't restrictive when they need to climb through dense brush or up rocks. I do wish that there were more color options since our boys are mostly brown though and having a brighter option (we currently have the red) would be a great for viability on the trail and at camp.

Our family spends a lot of time outside and I hated seeing my baby so cold in the winter. I tried multiple different jackets from local pet stores and had no luck finding one of good quality that fit her build. I finally decided to make the investment for this jacket and could not be happier. Reese is able to comfortably play with her friends at daycare for hours in the chilly weather no problem, and the quality is unmatched! We will be trying other Ruffwear gear in the future.

Best dog jacket purchased thus far. Ruger has the Trailhead Brown and the jacket is holding up well as Ruger runs through the brush tracking down deer. We have a new 8 week old Lacy pup and I will be purchasing one for her as soon as she gets a little bigger. The fit is very good and I like that the buckles are higher up under the top layer. I feel that helps keep a dog from chewing on the buckles.

Good quality and durable

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This is a durable, good quality jacket. Fit is pretty good though a bit big on the back end (deep chested hound). I ordered the purple but it's a lot more pink than I realized, oops! I wasn't that thrilled with the colour choices on all the jackets and wanted to get away from the grey I bought in the other jackets, but wish I had just stuck with the grey in the end. Otherwise, it stands up well, it's the jacket that is allowed to be worn when he goes out with the dog walker! The material on this seems much more durable than the Sunshower jacket, and is definitely way more durable than the last fleece lined jacket I had from another company.

We needed a warm, protective jacket for our Brittany that would stand up to her runs through dense bush. We had tried the Cloud Chaser jacket, and while it's a nicely fitted, well-made jacket, it was just not sturdy enough. The K-9 overcoat is great - Maisie has been wearing it for a month now on her daily runs without a single rip. It's warm, well-fitted (she has a size small), and the fabric is sturdy enough to stand up to her rubbing against tree trunks and dashing through brush. Excellent jacket!

I bought this coat last year when temperatures were barely above freezing and it was drizzly for days. That doesn't happen much in Texas, so I haven't gotten much use out of the coat, but when we need it, it's fantastic. My dog doesn't mind being wet, or cold, but I figured the combination would be uncomfortable on our hikes. I like how much it covers his underside, and the buckles make it easy to put on. Definitely recommended.

Favorable, but . . . .

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

First off let me say that this product is well made, fits well and will keep my short haired girl warm. The "but" is that there is no access hole through the top of the coat to hook her harness. Ruffwear makes wonderful products, but it seems to me that there could have been a little more thought put into some things. Although we live in a neighborhood where I could let her run we choose not to, we prefer to either walk her or keep her fenced. The lack of an access hole is not a deal breaker given the quality of the product and my wife has added a slot to provide access for her harness. That being said I would recommend this product.

Think he must have read my mind because this winter he got me a jacket, think he calls it a K9 overcoat, wow what a difference it makes to winters, fits great, keeps me warm & dry and feels soooo comfortable Awesome jacket, very well thought out & put together .... Bit of velcro on the straps would help the loose end sit inside the vest

I would definitely recommend it.

Would you recommend this product?.: No

I give this coat a 3 only because it has not been water resistant for us -- the seams leak through to to fleece. I love the fit and coverage it gives our big boy, and on cold days, it keeps him toasty. But he doesn't really need the coat most days, we bought if for wet and snowy days to keep him dry. While this coat works better than nothing, if we're out longer than 20 minutes, the seams leak enough that the fleece is wet. I would recommend it to a friend with that caveat.

Would you recommend this product?.: No

Perhaps I was spoiled by an older (perhaps 8 years old) Ruffwear outerwear coat. I found the new coat to be thin and too long through the chest. The side fasteners are pretty small and harder to use than the older coat. The older coat has more loft and fits better. Otherwise, the new coat is well-sewn and sturdy. Just wish it was the same as the old coat.

The construction quality is superb and its very easy to put on and take off. Our dogs are very wiggly and don't stand still so it's important for us that a coat be easy to put on - this is. But most importantly, the material is very good quality - Our dogs run through woods with these jackets on twigs and branches just brush by the coat without snagging or scratching. Very well made product. My only complaint is the sizing - The Medium coat fits my dog's body, but the neck is too tight. Would give it 5 stars if the fit was better.

We kick up our paws in: Leonard, MN

My canine companion(s): Golden Retriever

I couldn't find anything better, but I was expecting more.

Would you recommend this product?.: No

First of all, I was really impressed with the quality of material that was used on the majority of the coat. However, there are standard plastic buckles to hold it together. That didn't bother me as much until my dog chewed them off after the first week. I would've hoped for a buckle made out of something sturdier, because even if she never chewed off the buckle I feel that it easily could've been broken by a number of things. She is still wearing it with a string around her belly. The other thing that I find the most disappointing is that I was hoping it would be warmer or cover more of her body. It gets cold up here, but I think that because of the quality of the material overall that it's acceptable. It may look thin, but it is probably enough to heat her up as she moves around outside. I would recommend this product with warning depending on what you are looking for in a coat.

Since this was Rooney's first coat, I was a bit nervous how he would feel about it. To my surprise he took right to it, which leads me to believe it's a comfortable fit for him. Now, when he sees the coat come out, he knows he's going for walk just like the leash or his harness. Sizing was good and the elastic bands create a good snug fit around his chest that's not too tight.

Great item and I really like the color on this one as well.

We kick up our paws in: Idaho

My canine companion(s): Heeler/Boston Terrier cross

Very impressed

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Having doodled and dawdled for months about buying one, I finally did, and I love it. Alli is a service dog, and though she has a double coat, it's fairly short- and with winter here, she does get chilly and wet. I won't take a wet dog into restaurants, and she hates to be cold! This coat fits well under her vest and does not pinch or rub. It also wears great with her harness and she wears the coat on our bike rides to help keep warm. The outside is very waterproof and inside seems pretty warm. Only thing is, I wish it came in more colors (like pink!) and that the inside collected less of her plentiful fur. I chose this coat over the quinzee because having seen a quinzee in person, the material has no hope of holding up to Alli and her adventures off duty. I can just picture her busting through a bush and coming out covered in rips! I would definitely advise anyone buying one of these to try a ruffwear coat in person. You'll be doing exchanges if you don't, and that's a pain. Get the right size the first time. But overall, very happy with the coat. Will buy again if this one ever wears out. I don't anticipate that it will but you never know.

Have tried it on to make sure it fits but am still waiting to use it on a walk as truly cold weather hasn't yet hit Fort Wayne for winter season of 2014/15. With girth measurement 20 inches (19 lb dog) the Fit Guide steered me to an XS. Fits nicely. Easy on and off. Had to figure on a looser harness or better yet a second harness already adjusted to go over top of dog apparel. For even colder conditions/added protection, it fits nicely over top the XS Climate Changer also purchased.

It doesn't get super cold in Virginia Beach, but we do have our share of days that last year my little Chihuahua needed 2 sweaters. He weighs 7 lbs and we ordered the XXS. It fits him perfectly when completely cinched up. Our small female Min Pin measured at the chest girth for an XS but when it came it was way too large at the chest. I tried his on her and let out the straps almost all the way and PERFECT. Ruffwear was very accommodating and exchanged for the smaller size. My husband and adult daughter have both commented on how great the new coats look. -- I am sure we will be wearing them soon.

Best Option for Sleek Sighthound Builds

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I took my gal to a dealer originally thinking I would get a her a Cloud Chaser. After trying on a few coats, we decided that the K-9 Overcoat offered her the best fit in XS. She's 22 inches at the ribcage (the cutoff for XXS to XS) and only 22 pounds. She's super skinny in the back! (It's that Basenji/German Pinscher/Whippet/Italian Greyhound/Whatever the Heck She is DNA!) The Cloud Chaser ended up being a good fit in the front but WAY too big in the back. This model has an adjustable strap and buckle that lets you cinch it up for those svelte canine creatures! It fits closer to her body but still gives her wiggle room without being too bulky. I'll say, if you are near a dealer it's an excellent idea to take your pooch for a fitting. If I would have ordered online I might have went through a couple returns due to size and fit. Ruffwear does their best with the sizing charts, but with so many variables it's hard to know for sure unless you try it on first! Also, the quality is excellent and should last us a lifetime. Unless someone chews it up first!!

we've had a few different versions of this coat over the years and the design gets better every time an updated version is released. Our smaller dog has a 32" girth and wears a large in the Cloud Chaser and Climate Changer coats, but in the Overcoat he needs a medium. We starting testing these jackets in the fall of 2013 and they still look brand new after using them for an entire fall, winter, and spring. When we has extremely low temps for a few weeks last winter we layered the Overcoat with the Cloud Chaser for extra warmth. These jackets are super easy to put on and take off, which makes them great even for short potty break trips outside when it is wet.

My canine companion(s): Black Labrador Retriever

Best I have ever owned

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

OK, I have owned Dogs my entire life, Everywhere from Alaska, Colorado to Ohio. This is the first RuffWear item I have ever purchased and by far the highest quality item I have ever owned. I have bought 5 more Ruff Wear Items since then that equal or exceed the level of Quality and Functionality. ALL are fantastic. Now back to this one. I bought this, for our (75 lb) Black Lab, that is in a size large first, then in Medium due to sizing issues. Her measurements were 32 Inches circumference around the chest and that is right between Med and Lrg. I went large since I thought she would need a little extra room to grow. It was WAY too big for a Labs torso. She has a pretty thick neck and the neck opening was huge on the large. This MEDIUM one fit her perfectly with still room to grow. Other features I love about this jacket are as follows: Pro's -Still room to grow. Have some room for expansion still. Elastic buckles that are actually between material layers so they won't chafe to dog. Still room to extend and they have elasticity. -Reflective Stitching, Logo and stitching Built-in - She is completely black, need I say anything else. -Clasps - Best I have ever used, how they are covered from the elements and padded with the garment that touches the dog is wonderful- I would be comfortable wearing this as a poncho. -It stays oriented on top due to the Chest/Belly "strap" and tailored cut - Loop for a light on back - I bought a bike LED flashing light and it works great. - Fleece lining; wonderfully lined for warmth and pet comfort. She wears it three times a day now and it still looks new - even with snow, rain, etc. - Exterior material, water repellent/proof nature. Keeps the dog torso dry even though she would rather be wet. - Design, the cut of this jacket looks like and functions like it was engineered for my Lab specifically. The Over shoulder and Chest/Belly portion of the jacket not only function to keep the dog warm, it seems like it is comfortable, and it stays exactly where it needs to be to protect Bailey from the elements. Cons: ABSOLUTELY NONE, Not even the price. After the obvious research and engineering that has gone into this, I cannot find one thing that I would want on this. It is simply a Well manufactured, Perfectly designed Jacket. It would meet Patagonia, Marmot or North Face standards. THANK YOU. I plan to buy another RuffWear Jacket specifically for the rain in late spring, and their Swamp Cooler Vest before summer. I have bought five other RuffWear items since this Jacket, harness, Collars, Leash, Boots. I am sold for life on the quality. RuffWear is AWESOME
