Don’t let the cold weather keep you or your dog down! Chilly temperatures are an excellent reason to keep your dog cozy, warm, and dry in a stylish or practical outer layer such as a winter dog coat or jacket. In this article, we’ll explore the various features of a popular Ruffwear dog coat: the Overcoat jacket, one of our top five picks for dog coats and jackets in 2020.
(See the full list here, complete with a video roundup, product specs, and purchasing information.)
Here’s our review.
A great choice for active dogs, the Ruffwear Overcoat jacket features a wind and water-resistant outer shell and a soft fleece interior lining, both made from recycled polyester.
Durable plastic buckles tuck into the jacket to stand up to dogs who may tug, scratch, and rub against them. Reflective trim and a portal for leashes and harnesses punch up the utility of this all-around cold-weather shell layer.
Note: We reviewed this Ruffwear dog coat in size small, and found it ran large (it fit our blog strategist’s 30 pound schnauzer mix with plenty of room to spare).
As with any piece of dog clothing, be sure to measure your dog before ordering to determine the best fit. If you’re not sure where to start, check out our handy guide, How to Measure Your Dog for a Harness, Clothes, and Costumes.Shop on Amazon
