Great coat found after years of search!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Nooley from Wisconsin on Tuesday, December 30, 2014
I have ordered and returned and bought and returned many dog coats over the past 4 years looking for a well constructed dog coat that was waterproof, had sleeve cuffs, no velcro closures, adjustable fit and looked respectable so I don't look like I was playing "dress up" with my dog.
Another reviewer said a size 13 worked for her 20 lb Cavalier so I ordered that one too even though my Cavy is just 12 lbs. It fits great, the cuffs are long enough to cover that pesky leg hair that soaks up wet and mud like a sponge and it covers enough of the long, equally absorbent belly hair too! I love the adjustable cinching to make it tighter or more loose and I really love that the closure is zipper closure on the back! It is so hard to get a dog coat on that closes on the belly and velcro only gets full of dog hair immediately and then no longer stays closed well enough. Ive lost 2 other dog coats with Velcro closures because when she runs through fields, they get stuck on small brush and sticks and pull right off. The zipper on this coat is fantastic, making it very easy to get the hair out of the way so you wont zip up the hair along with the coat! The ONLY reason I gave this a 4 and not a 5 was because its fleece lined inside and I really hate that. I'm sure on shorter haired dogs the fleece will help to keep warm but on any shedding breed of dog, that fleece just gets covered in hair and you can never get it clean again. If they made an insulated coat yet had the lining be a smooth fabric that didn't act as a hair magnet, Id be all over it! Aside from that, GREAT coat, I know Ill be mad that I didn't get one for my Springer and Irish Setter too at this awesome price!!
