4out of 5

Gift: No

Sizing: Feels half size too small

Pros: Washes Well, Fun, Easy to Put On, Good Quality, Good cold wet climates

Cons: Reflective unstitching

Best Uses: Outdoors, Harsh Weather, Medium Dogs

Describe Yourself: Single Dog Owner, Service Dog handler

This coat is great for our cold, wet and snowy winter climate. Great water reppellency, wind reppellency, fleece lined for warmth. I have 2 for my dog, one with service dog patches and one without for playtime. They are 3 years old now and the velcro is still good on both... just keep them fastened when not in use, and when in wash. I like the wide bands that fasten the coat onto the dog as it adds to the warmth of the coat. Would be nice to have more chest protection though. Great product!
