        Comments about Ruff Wear RUFFWEAR Cloud Chaser 13 Dog Jacket:

        We bought this RUFFWEAR Cloud Chaser 13 Dog Jacket a few months ago when the temperatures started getting into the teens here in central Illinois. This is the first canine jacket that I have purchased. I did so after considering lots of other reviews for lots of other jackets. My 70 lbs yellow lab wears this on our daily runs when the temperature is below 20 deg F. He's an indoor family dog, but also my running partner. He is high-energy and needs plenty of exercise, regardless of the weather, so we needed something to shield him from the elements on cold and windy runs. His chest measured in the middle of size medium, so we bought a size medium. At eight months old, I don't think he is done growing or filling out, so we will need to buy the larger size next year, especially because of chaffing issues that I describe below. He gets excited when the jacket comes out of the closet because it means going outside to run. The fit of the jacket is snug and is a little tough to get the zipper started on a wiggling, excited wearer, but once it's on it stays on and he doesn't try to bite at it or get it off. The zipper itself is very sturdy and designed to avoid catching hair or skin while zipping. The jacket is form-fitting and snug around his chest and forearms. The length is spot-on, extending to the base of his tail and leaving room for his boy-parts to do their thing without making a mess on the jacket. The reflective pinstripe on each side of the jacket is very helpful for visibility by vehicles. He wore the jacket pheasant hunting once and it held up well against snags and stickers, but did collect lots of burrs and clinging seeds on the chest area. One problem we have found is chaffing on the inner side of both forearms, near the seam where the jacket sleeves are attached. The chaffing initially appeared after a 16 mile trail run, but now reappears after about an hour or less of running (about 7 or 8 miles) because the skin is already tender at those spots. Therefore, I've been selective on how frequently he wears the jacket, so the chaffing has time to heal between wearing. Because of this I think the next larger size would have been a better fit, instead of the medium, even though he measured as a medium. Because of the volume and frequency of running that we do (40 miles per week, or more), he may not be a great example of typical fit/chaffing issues, so keep that in mind. I'm considering cutting the sleeves or making alterations to halt the chaffing, especially since I don't think this jacket will fit him next year anyway. Otherwise, this is a nice jacket, made with technical fabrics that are similar to the running gear that I wear. We have the green color, but if an orange or other fluorescent color was available I would have gotten that instead to increase night-time visibility. I would have given a 4-star review if the chaffing was not an issue, and a 5-star review if the chest material was tougher and water resistant like the top-side material, to repel salty, wet slush that kicks up during the run. The current chest material doesn't have much of an insulating factor and doesn't repel splashing slushy water. My dog may not be the most typical user of this jacket, so my negatives might not be your negatives.

          I never really used the product. I measured Otto and since he is 6 months ordered the large figuring to give him some growing room. It was a tent. I then went by the strick size guide and orderd the small and it was the right length but was way to tight at the neck. I never ordered the medium.

            I have winter hardy dogs, but this coat helps to prevent the build-up of ice balls in their fur under their chest, belly and in "armpits" of their front legs. The coat does not interfere with their movement at all.

            Comments about Ruff Wear RUFFWEAR Cloud Chaser 13 Dog Jacket:

            Our 70lb Lab/Hound mix measured exactly in the middle of the Large size. We ordered it and boy is it tight around her. We have to close the snap first and then we need 3 hands to get the zipper closed. I feel like this is the only real flaw on the product. Once it's on, it fits her perfectly but it's a pain to get to that point. Other than this, the jacket is awesome.
