potentially dangerous design flaw

I have two German Shephard Mix rescue dogs that I have used the Front Range Harness on for years and loved the product, so decided to purchase Ruffwear coats this year for them. I purchased the Vert jacket thinking it would give us the most versatility. They both have long backs and the jackets offer good coverage, they are easy to put on and take off, and I liked the bright orange for visibility. Seemed to work fine on early morning hikes in cold weather. However, on a recent snowshoeing adventure, I discovered a flaw that really concerned me. My dogs love the snow, they plow through the deep stuff, wrestle and have a great time. They were wearing their jackets as it was only 20 degrees out. At the end of our adventure, back at the truck, I removed their jackets to find they were significantly heavier. Upon inspection I found that snow had worked its way into the bottom panel through the strap opening. My Male dog (tall) had small snow balls inside the panel and the panel was absolutely soaked where his body heat had melted trapped snow. My female dog (very short legged) had a bottom panel packed with hard snow! She was running around in 20 degree weather with an ice pack strapped to her belly!!! Jackets were definitely NOT helping to keep my dogs warm and had the potential to induce hypothermia! I was horrified. The bottom panel needs to be waterproof and the strap openings need to be sewn closed. Perhaps a short elastic section can be on each side of the panel to still allow the stretch while having the bottom panel sealed. I can see this panel "packet" being a problem in tall grass too as it would collect grass awnings and debris. In the snow, it's dangerous! I have pictures I can share and would be glad to discuss with you more if needed. I hope this is helpful and that the design flaw can be addressed. Thanks, Concerned Dog Mom

Not what I expected

On the positive side, the jacket seems to be well-constructed, but I expected this jacket to be warm because it was advertised as having a fleece lining. I bought it a bit large so I could put my dog's harness underneath it, but now I find that I have to put her Polartec snuggy under the jacket to keep her warm on extra cold days. She also hates the elastic straps that go around the back legs, but fortunately the jacket stays down pretty well anyway. If you are looking for a mildly cool rainy day, this might be the jacket for you, but if you are looking for cold weather gear, this is not the one. Wish I had bought something else.

Superdog jacket!

This jacket is great. We needed a waterproof jacket that wasn’t too warm. This fit the bill perfectly. Our dog had never worn a coat yet took easily to wearing this. He looks really cute with it on, too!

Nice coat, fit a bit iffy

As usual Ruffwear has made a lovely , functional , sturdy coat. Also as usual, at least in my experience, the sizing can be difficult. Many previous Ruffwear coats had neck holes too small compared to the rest of the coat. This one had the opposite problem. In both medium and large, the coat fit the dog (in this case golden retrievers ) but the neck hole was too large and gaping. I fired up the sewing machine took off the collar , altered the coat neck by over an inch and put the collar back on. Otherwise these coats fit the Goldens nicely. On the pointers (GSP and Weim) we could size down do the neck fit a bit better (but still would require adjustment) but the pointer butts did not fill out the coats well. The coats do come with leg straps to hold the coat close to the hind end . The dogs hated them and the straps also didnt last long with active romps. The leg straps might be great for leash walks on an older GSP or Weim. They would keep the coat close in a breeze . The Golden’s butts filled out the coats without need for the leg straps. For reference , the medium fits a small golden (55 lbs) with a full coat, the large was for a tall 65 lb golden. The medium was a tad too large (floppy ) for our 50 lbs GSPs who wear mediums in the overcoats b but fit a 60 pounder well and wasn’t bad on a 63 lb weim pretty though it was a bit short in body length on him. I am calling this one a good suburban coat for wet cold weather with full coverage to keep mud and rain at bay. but not a great active athletic coat unless you have a heavy coated dog with a largish butt and good sized neck. But does such a dog even need a coat? Maybe...
