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.

Ruff wear true to name

Wish it had a hole for a harness. Otherwise great.

Buzz wears Ruffwear

Guidelines for fit on line were very helpful! Our dog Buzz seems comfy in his overcoat and has great range of motion. We would recommend this product to other dog owners.

Boxer Pup Loves Her Jacket!

My 6mo boxer puppy needed a jacket now, since the weather is getting chilly, but I still wanted something that she could grow into. I purchased the Medium size for her and it was a smidge big at first. Even now, at 9 months, with the proportions of a 45lb gazelle, it is a bit big, but I fully expect her to grow into it still. The jacket is adjustable enough that she isn’t bothered by the excess fabric. Definitely love this product and RuffWear in genera. :)

Great product flexibility

I liked the overcoat flexibility. It kept my dog warm and dry while having the option to use it by itself or with their Ruffwear harness. Not sure if the info was there but wish it would be easier to know what the coat’s length was so we could check it out on our dog.
