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.

Overcoat jackets for two dogs

Both of our dogs are close to the same size. The Overcoat Jacket fits them both equally well and seems to be comfortable on them. I particularly like that it fits over the Ruff Wear harnesses we use so we can attach their leashes through a port in the jacket designed for that purpose.

We love this jacket and so does our cattle dog mix! Unlike a purebred cattle dog, she has very short hair and this jacket keeps her nice and warm during these frigid mornings we've been experiencing up in Michigan. It's necessary to walk her in her harness and as advertised, this jacket accommodates that perfectly.

Your overcoat

Excellent product! Rescued a new dog and we got him this jacket and your down jacket for much colder all your products and always highly recommend them.

Great Quality, Color and Style

Unfortunately the sizing is difficult. For our 24 lb mini Goldendoodle, we bought an xsmall (too small) and a small (too big, he just sits down). We’ll be donating both to the local SPCA. Lucky dogs!
