The Ruffwear Overcoat™ is our classic cold-weather utility jacket. This vest-style jacket is built with sturdy, durable materials to keep up with the most active dog. Wind- and water-resistant outer fabric protects against harsh elements, while interior recycled polyester fleece lining keeps body heat in. Side-release buckles on both sides provide easy on/off, and a leash portal allows the Overcoat to be worn over our Front Range™ Harness or Web Master™ Harness.

Best jacket at last.

I really am so happy with this overcoat, but more importantly, my dog loves it too. She is an English Pointer and the jacket completely covers her back. All the others I’ve tried only went half way. I also love the chest protection it gives her when she bashes through the brush. It stays in place no matter what.

Perfect for my Seattle dog

I love the coat for rainy or snowy days. My dog is 38 lbs and the small fits her best.

The coat fits my dog perfectly. She was a little hesitant at first about it, probably because it was something new. Now she loves it! I pull it out from the closet and she just walks right over to me. Thank you Ruffwear for the wonderful quality and comfort of the overcoat jacket. You have won me over as a repeat customer.

Overcoat Jacket

I have a few rescue/abused dogs but my Trea, 45lb restock coonhound from TN, as no fur on underbell..she was also the worst abused dog I’ve adopted but great now, running conservation land 2 hrs a day with her sibs and a lg dog community on Cape Cod! I ord’ this jacket but must have not measured correctly so gave it to a friend for his 13 yr old greyhound who usually needs to spend extra cold winter days indoors but now out everyday in this great jacket! Bought a new smaller jacket for Trea and wonderful-great coverage, pretty much indestructible (she’s a hunter in running thru brush/briars while on a scent) and not tears at all.. when below 30 I put a sweater under jacket and she can go forever... **** The only negative is that recently she came out of brush and her front leg went thru the neckhole...a friend w me, a nurse but former vet tec, worked 20m to get leg out...I now carry sizzors in case it happens again...also bought double sided Velcro to try and correct collar.. I’d prefer a Velcro closure on this jacket and then it would be the best jacket I’ve seen in 30 yrs- This jacket is truly Ruff Wear and have recommended to numerous dog walkers this year!!!
