This Hurtta coat is very well constructed of superior materials, Bought size 16, to fit a 30 pound dog that measures 16 inches from withers to base of tail.
Fit is perfect. I expect this coat will be great for keeping snow off his belly this winter. Coat has performed well in rain keeping the dog ...

Beautifully made with quality fabric. I think the 13" fit our 17 pound coton-de-tulear perfectly. My husband felt that the front leg length was too long for her and too tight. I disagreed as if we were in NNY during thispast winter we would want a long, snug (not tight) leg for warmth. As we are in Arizona for the winter and were only looking for something to travel in with cold mornings and not snow he won and I had to return. This is however a beautiful dog jacket.

This coat is made so well in Finland that it makes me want to move there! At first Hamlet growled when I lifted his paws, one at at time to put them through the leg holes. But then he got used to this. It doesn't pull off like the velcro types. Warm, waterprroof and brightly colored, so good during hunting season and the coldest winter days up here in Vermont!

It's exactly what I was looking for. Quality construction. Reasonable price. Unfortunately, though I thought I was following the sizing instructions, I chose a size which was way too big for my dog. Once I had the jacket in front of me, I was finally able to understand how the measurements were suppose to be made. I had to return it, and they don't have the correct size for my dog. Bummed to find exactly what I wanted, but not able to get the size I need.
my 27-28" girth, 20-21" length dogs use a size 20. one of them gets serious leg sores from the friction of the "sleeves" so i had to cut those off entirely, and make the leg holes rather big to avoid this problem, but the general fit is good, and lines up with this sizing info i found elsewhere:

For a chest girth, from 24 inches to 29 inches, the dog's back length (from collar to base of tail) should be between 18 inches to 22 inches. I see that the available coats on sale here are limited in the size selection. In my opinion, the size 17 (which is the back length measurement) would be too small for your dog. If you go to the website, Hurtta.com, and the website, eurodogdesigns.com you will find better information about how to measure your dog for this coat. Both websites also have a dog breed guide, so you can get the most appropriate size for your dog.
I think the sizes given on SierraTradingPost are back length of coats. I have two dogs and each of them have several Hurtta dog coats. They are the very best dog coats I have purchased (I have Fido Fleece coats and Ruffwear coats and NeoPaws coats....which are all exceptionally well made, and durable). The Hurtta products are my preferred choice because they are what I would call top of the class in quality and durability.
The advantage of this particular coat by Hurtta is that it covers the chest and the belly of the dog, which needs protection against the wet and cold and snow. You can find these coats on Amazon.com also. Look for the least expensive price because there are several sellers offering the Hurtta products.
Good luck. I hope you dog stays warm and protected.

So it would appear. I never did figure it out.

Hi, See these websites for full information about measuring your dog to fit the Hurtta jacket. (I bought one for my Springer Spaniel in December and we've both been really happy with it.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=813LroI7j-Q

The way the sizes are lists here are for example: 14 inches around the neck (collar measurement), on a dog with a back length (from collar to base of tail) of 17 inches to 19 inches, is for a dog with a 25 inch chest/girth measurement.
Hurtta makes coats to fit different breeds of dogs. Their products are very extensive in fitting all shapes of dogs. So, for example, for an English Bulldog, if the dog's collar size is 17 inches and the dog has a short body with a back length of between 15 inches and 17 inches, and has a chest size of 22 inches, that would fit that English Bull Dog.
Go to the websites, Hurtta.com and Eurodogdesigns.com for more information on proper sizing. Hurtta products are more expensive than the other top quality dog products, like Ruffwear, Fido Fleece and NeoPaws, because Hurtta offers better sizing more designs for different weather conditions, and better tailoring and durabiliy.
I have products from all these companies for my two dogs (very active and large) and I much prefer the Hurtta products.
And no....I am not a representative for the company. I just love my dogs and want the best for them.

If you hover on or click on the sizes the sizing information is displayed. IE Sizes Available: 13 (Length 13 IN. BACK, JACK RUSSELL) Sizes Available: 16 (Length 16 IN. BACK, COCKER SPANIEL) The sizes represent the back length of the dog.
