very stylish on -
I have a boston terrier who i think is a small dog but when i measured him against the size chart he needed medium and it fitted perfectly. My dog looks one cool dude in this coat and he doesn't mind wearing it. We get so many compliments when we are out walking. But more importantly it keeps him warm and dry and is easy to clean as you can machine wash it. Its easy to put on and stays secure when he's off running. The only negative I can say is that the velcro on the strap round the neck needs to be longer. He needs it as tight as it will do up but it leaves the end flapping which does ruin the look of it slightly. Also in very cold weather he would have to wear a fleece under it for extra warmth. But that also has a plus as the coat isn't too thick to wear on a spring/summers rainy day. Would recommend this product its worth every penny.
So disappointed! -
By: Resdes2 from London
I bought two of these in small for my Schnauzers and although I loved the product, I couldn't do it up around their tummies. I now have bought the medium and it completely drowns them. As many other reviewers have mentioned, there needs to be some in-between sizes... going from 14" to 18" is just no good. Otherwise.....longer belly straps. It is also a shame that there is not a hole for the harness clips but I was prepared to make that myself. So disappointed ..will now have to look at other brands.

Collie Worthy! -
By: GloriB from Greenfield,WI
Purchased the Barbour dog coat for our collie and the XL is perfect. It is beautifully tailored, buckle strap is secure and the coat looks wonderful on our guy. It keeps the cold rain and wind buffered enough to increase his comfort on our long walks.He really LIKES wearing it and knows he looks handsome in it! we are so pleased with another Orvis product of superior quality

Winter Walkies -
By: dseat from Kent ct9
This quality Barbour quilted dog coat is superb. With easy velcro & tummy belt fastenings which makes for a cozy winter wrap for my best friend. The traditional tartan lining & the Barbour logo really makes my doggy feel very special & it has a very stylish dappa look. Give your best friend this lovely gift.
Style over Substance -
By: Gonetothedogs from Hampshire
I don't even own a Barbour jacket but now my dog does and very smart she looks too. The trouble is that it just isn't nearly warm enough! It should be thermal lined but it isn't. The material is very thin but this was the best I could find for my elderly labrador who has spent the past ten years in a warmer climate. She just won't go outside on those cold winter mornings any more and I will have to put a blanket under the coat to keep her warm in winter.
Great for California -
Very lightweight and suitable for my purposes in California. Would not recommend it for colder climates.
I agree with the other review that this coat is so thin. It just looks good but wouldn't keep a dog warm and with the cost and shipping it isn't acceptable. I waited for it since last November on backorder and just received it as winter is ending.

Very Thin -
The jacket is very pretty but it is VERY thin. Not exactly sure how this is supposed to keep a dog warm. We hate to send it back because we do like the look of it on our dog, but we are going to have to. For the $55, you should get a thicker/warmer jacket.
