Continuing on our exploration of Ruffwear dog jackets, this week we are looking at the ultra-tough, wind and water resistant K-9 Overcoat™.
Moira, aka “Mo,” in Customer Service calls the K-9 Overcoat “The Quiver Jacket.” “My ‘go-to’ jacket for Jada is the K-9 Overcoat. This is my daily winter jacket when she is on her evening off-leash run. As one of the craziest of the crazy dogs, she tears through and leaps over brush, chasing smells. The K-9 Overcoat holds up to the constant abuse from abrasion and keeps her nearly hairless body warm and free of scrapes! It fits perfectly and when paired with The Beacon™, is visible from a distance so I can keep her within eyesight in the dark evenings. I call it Jada’s “Quiver Jacket”.” Read about Mo’s Van-Tastic Life here.
The K-9 Overcoat is functional and eco-sensitive. The abrasion and weather resistant outer shell is made of 100% recycled polyester while the recycled inner fleece lining provides warm, soft insulation retaining body heat.
Other highlights include:
- Duraflex® auto-lock buckles that are sheltered (hidden under the outer shell) to increase durability and prevent snagging as the dog brushes up against branches and trees
- Elastic webbing that provides a slim athletic fit while allowing the coat to move with your dog
- 3M™ reflective trim for enhanced visibility
- Light Loop near the collar for attaching The Beacon™ or any other safety light
“Dahlia and I love the K-9 Overcoat!,” says Ruffwear Customer Service Rep, Jeremiah. “I love it because of its durability, warmth, protection and sleek fit and design. Dahlia loves it because it keeps her warm and protected as she’s recklessly bounding through bushes chasing every chipmunk that crosses her path, after which it looks no worse for wear. It will survive and thrive on any outdoor adventure!”
