    Following the size charts this jacket should have fit my dog (shiba inu/cocker cross). The length was perfect. But the opening between the two front leg holes was too narrow. I would consider my dog a rather narrow chested breed. So if your dog has wide chest at all, either order up on the size chart or go elsewhere. I have several other hurta products (y harness, winter coat, collar, etc) and they all fit her fine. They fit great and have really held up over time.

    As for construction and quality of this fleece, it looked and felt great. The material was pretty dense, I expected it to be thinner & softer somehow. But this material really seemed like it would be perfect for cutting the wind on a cold day. If stp had the next size up, I would have tried it. I don't think I was the only person that had to send it back. When I got it, I found an errant hair or two. So someone else had probably already sent it back before me. I used half a lint brush trying to get my dog's hair off it in order to send it back.

    I bought this for my 7 KG female Jack Russell. I was surprised by how far short the jacket fell from what I needed.

    I've used it during a cold and wet Fall, and stopped using it before Winter as the inside would get sopping wet. I don't know if the water goes straight through the fabric, or via the material around the leggings, or what. This is now a back-up back-up jacket if everything else is wet, muddy, or in the wash. I had actually convinced myself that I must have been mistaken and it is not waterproof, until I saw the description again here and felt obliged to write a review to give others a heads up.

    Other than not being waterproof the jacket is a good fit, although the leg holes are too tight and getting her paws through has to be done by threading them through the knit part, with the dogs cooperation.

    The absolute best dog jackets I have had were from STP, made by Columbia, but they have not been available anywhere for years. I've gotten probably 5 different ones since then and they all have shortcomings. The dog jackets I have from Columbia are literally coming apart at the seams, zips are busted, but I still use them on a daily basis they are so perfectly fitting, waterproof, and comfy for her.

    Heard about the brand on Facebook, so thought I'd try it for my old "guy" as he needs the extra warmth on these cold winter days. This coat is perfect even for inside wear. He's 14 years old and shivers a lot even in a warm house. The fluorescent stripes on the side of the coat help me keep track of him when he goes out to do his business at bedtime. He's getting a bit senile and wanders around sometimes. Sierra had several of this brand's products available and at sale prices. Very pleased, and will definitely continue to be a Sierra customer in the future.

    good zipper, coverage and not too bad to get on Snowy and Cold in New England this winter for a little puppy. 11 pounds with boundless energy. This jacket has allowed us to plow through deep snow and when we get back inside the snowballs are only on her feet so warm up/ drying time is reduced.

    I've coveted this coat for some time now. Living in New England with a rather low-to-the-ground, long-furred dog, I'd often wished I had a wet suit for my boy. Walking him in rainy/snowy weather is like walking a wet mop. Online searches turned up the Hurtta dog coat line, but the prices were pretty steep, so I was thrilled to see this waterproof fleece jacket on sale here. I ordered it during the last storm in January, with an extra percentage off, and received it in the midst of the next storm the following week. Great timing.

    I'm very pleased with the product. The jacket is well-constructed and pretty easy to put on - if you have a patient dog, that is. Because the jacket zips from tail to neck, I find it best to face my dog, place the coat on the floor at his feet, help his front paws through, and then draw the sides of the coat up to zip it closed. My boy got used to the sleeves pretty quickly and has no problems wearing them. He loves running or body surfing through the deep snow we have and this jacket protects him perfectly. His belly and chest, the areas of worst exposure to wet and snow/ice balls, are completely dry. I love having to wipe off only his paws and nose when he comes from romping. The sizing was a bit tricky. He falls between size, so an 18 - which was unavailable - might have given him more room, but he's managing very well with the more fitted 17. Due to the more fitted size, I haven't had to play with the adjustments too much, only the neck closure. Despite the deep snow he plows through, only a very small amount of snow gets into the cowl and the bungee cord closure keeps it from going very far down his neck. Further adjustment of the cord minimized this even more. His movements are unimpeded and he is no way restricted. He can still run like the wind with his coat on.

    We've used this coat several times a day since we got it and we're loving it. Although he has a good thick coat of fur, I think my boy appreciates the wind-blocking feature of this jacket and the extra warmth. He has been able to stay out longer on the single digit/zero degree mornings and evenings we've been having and is back to enjoying his long walks. Pretty easy on, extremely easy off. Snow and moisture bead up and drip right off. It takes no time to dry. It wipes off well so far with just a damp cloth. I'll use his Hurtta raincoat (another extra percent off buy, thank you Sierra Trading Post!) during mud season, but for snowy, windy, cold days this jacket is just perfect. So glad I was able to find one at an affordable price. I've become a big fan of Hurtta coats - and Sierra Trading Post sale prices. I certainly recommend these high-quality products.
