finally a perfect fit!

I'm so happy I've discovered RUFFWEAR because I have tried and bought so many jackets for my JRT mix that never really fit her perfectly. But this one has just the right lenght, chest area, covers her tummy and her neck. It's easy to put on/take off and I love the loop on the back to attach the light! This way you can always see the light and it's not disturbing my dog. This is the second winter now she is wearing it and so far it's still in perfect shape. Washing is no problem either. Sadly I haven't found many RUFFWEAR products here in Switzerland yet, only very few items (bought this jacket on ebay). My dog always gets compliments for her well fitted jacket and it would be nice to recommend a shop where they could buy them. The only "negative" thing I could say about the "Climate Changer" is that after she's worn it, my dog sometimes licks her legs at the spot where the leg holes of the jacket were. So it may be rubbing on her legs a little too much. I have never seen any "damage" or anything on her skin though. I just saw that there are slightly different leg holes on the "Climate Changer Pullover" so I really want to get one! I've read in newer items the back lenght is shorter though...? I really hope it will fit just perfect like this one! PS: because I was so thrilled by this jacket I got the "Fernie" right after and it's just as great as this one!

I am always pleased with the quality of RUFFWEAR products. They are Definitely made to last. My Doberman LOVES his “PJ’s”. He whines to let me know he wants them on. Then lifts each foot without my asking to put through the leg holes. Too cute.

love this coat!

it's the perfect weight for active dogs in the winter! Only complaint is the zipper sometimes starts to unzip.

Great quality

Awesome product. The quality is wonderful and it’s very easy to put on as the zipper is on the side. This jacket is also very easy to clean. We had it on our pup at the dog park this winter where it (of course) got super muddy and it held up to cleaning very well. Overall awesome jacket and will be buying more products from Ruffwear in the future!

Great jacket, needs adjustments

I bought this jacket after buying the Fernie Jacket & has the same issue; the material is great, it does keep my dog very warm and comfortable during our outings. My only issue is that the sleeves rubbed her skin raw, the abrasion on her skin during activity made it hard for her to continue wearing it. She’s got very short hair and if the sleeves could just be made a bit longer & more loose so that it gives the skin some breathing room. I have no other issues with it, perfect winter jacket for most dogs
