heavy-duty fleece jacket for dogs

Reviewed by ssp from new york on Wednesday, November 20, 2013
got one for both of my pitbull mutts - 1 55lb female with 26-27" girth, 20" back length, 18" base of neck, the other is a 65lb male with 28" girth, 21" back length and 18-19" base of neck. they both wear the size 20 and it fits well - maybe a tiny bit snug on the smaller dog (her chest/front is wide). with adjustable elastic around the waist & neck, i'd say get the exact length size for your dog to get proper coverage, but definitely size up if they're near the girth cutoff, even if you have to cut/sew/tuck in the back.

the construction of the jacket is great, and the design provides a good amount of coverage. the material is substantial, but like other reviewers have mentioned, it is a bit stiff - more felted, rather than fuzzy fleece. that results in a strange sound when the dogs walk, sort of like you hear it un/folding in between strides. hopefully this lessens with wear, and isn't indicative of any friction points that leads to chafing.
