HAPPY DOGGY, HAPPY "MOMMY" -
By: PatandRubicon from Ridgefield Park, NJ
FINALLY!!! A cost for a large dog that stays in place!!! VELCRO just does not work for coat fasteners for a large active German Shepherd. This coat fits perfectly, ZIPS closed and gives my "pup" ease of movement and warmth/comfort to brave our cold NJ winters! GREAT price too, and much better than coats that are twice the price!!! THANKS ORVIS!!
Warm and safe -
This coat is easy to put on and take off. Our dog loves it. It is just the job for this cold wet weather and he is happy to stay outside in it and would keep it on it when he comes in! Thank you Orvis for another good buy.
Quality vest -
I found that the vest is well made and fits my dog well. The zipper is smooth to operate to secure vest. It has taken my dog a bit of time to get used to the material touching her legs as she walks and causes her to take more cautious steps. Sometimes it is difficult to put the vest on my dog by myself if my pet is excited about going out. Keeping her legs in the leg openings until the vest is zipped can be a challenge . I'm sure it will become easier with practice. My dog attracts attention in the vest( a Dalmatian in red vest) which is good to slow drive byes and make walks safer. All in all I'm pleased with purchase.
Great for the Athletic Dog -
By: CaseytheRedbone from Virginia
This vest is great for the athletic/crazy dog who doesn't do well in a traditional dog coat with a belly band. I ordered a size M for my 42 lb. Redbone Coonhound mix, who is slender, trim and built like a runner. It fit him well, although I was worried when I ordered it that it could be too small. The large would have been too long along the belly, it turns out. He is very comfortable in it, and most importantly, it stays on during active play. It is a breeze to put on/take off. A better fit could only be had with a custom made vest.
Great Jacket -

Recently purchased jacket for my treeing walker coonhound during the winter vortex. Really keeps him warm especially the belly area. Very easy to put on even with a wiggly dog. Thanks Orvis for thinking of the larger dogs that need cold weather gear!
Useful for Cats Too! -

I bought this jacket for my cat, as he is 17 and really feels the cold, though he loves to sit outside, even if only for a few minutes on a winter's day. It is easy to get on him and he can move freely. He may not love the jacket, but he loves its warmth.
Nice Dog Jacket -
By: Seafox from Cloudcroft, NM
This dog jacket is well made and seems to make my hound dog happy. The "up the back" zipper makes getting it on and off a breeze. I think all of the other neighborhood dogs are jealous
Great Belly Coverage -
By: Mali from Seattle, WA
Got this coat for my 85 pound lab mix because she's mostly bald in the tummy region. There are not many coats that provide lots of coverage in this area. This coat is easy to put on and easy to wash (I let it air dry). The only problem I have with the coat is that my dog is kind of barrel chested, so the coat tends to slide back and leg openings become a bit tight. This may be my fault in ordering, because my dog is right in between sizes. I plan on making a cut in the leg holes and inserting some elastic to fix this. Otherwise, do expect the usual fleece + dog = hair everywhere issues.
Good vest -
By: Weimaraner from Central California
My dog has a large chest, but slim through the neck and waist. I had to take in the collar to make the vest fit better. Quality of materials are quite good. Easy to put on and take off. I'd buy it again, but go with a larger size so I could custom fit to my dogs shape better.
Madison loves it and so do we!! -
By: Debkays from Adirondacks, NY
Madison, our soft-coated wheaten terrier just loves it - wears it all day if we allow her to. Perfect in snow as the snow mats her fur but this vest protects her entire belly area. Also easy to put on and take off which can be a problem with some vests because of her long hair. Fits well also. Buying a second one today! Thank you.
