Ruffwear Overcoat fuse jacket harness combo 5

There was a time when having a little jacket for your dog was generally reserved for those kind of people that you felt spoilt their pets and carried them around everywhere. Literally. Afterall, they’re born with coats on aren’t they, why do they need a jacket? Well, it seems that the rest of us have finally caught on to what is actually a pretty good idea! And who doesn’t mind a little bit of extra protection against the elements, fur coat or not?

Ruffwear, along with their usual focus on durability and toughness, have taken this jacket to another level by combining the abilities of a harness with it. The front of the jacket goes over the dogs head as is normal for a harness and the strap underneath clips in on the side of the jacket. The clip is conveniently hidden up behind the lining so there is less chance of an accidental unclipping or catching it on something while out walking, as well as providing a clean line for the jacket itself. Speaking of the lining, it’s fleece, just to give your pooch a little more luxury and comfort! The outside of the jacket has a water-repellent coating too so light moisture won’t soak in and weigh the coat down.

To be fair, sounds just like a good jacket so far. But, the way the jacket fits across the chest and the fact that you have 2 lead attachment points (an aluminium V-ring on the back and a reinforced webbing loop on the chest), gives you good control, especially with dogs that tend to strain on their lead. And, the final thing to top it off is the essential pockets! Whether it’s poo bags or a favourite toy, there’s one either side to stash the small essentials. RRP £109.96
