Ruffwear Excels Again
Argo is a 55 pound Bernese/Husky Mix. She is almost 3 years old and accompanies me on nearly every adventure, from mountains in the Cascades, rivers in the Ozarks and canyons in Southern Utah. She can take on any terrain and now with the Cloud Chaser Shell, I know almost any weather as well. I have several products from Ruffwear already (Float Coat and Palisades Pack) so I figured she would need a Medium - her measurements are 30" girth and 22" length - and the Medium fits just right. A bit snug on her front legs, but not enough to bother her and the length is perfect. It is a bit too long for my male dog of similar size, as it extends over his hips and he will pee on it if I don't pull it up when he has to go. The YKK locking zipper that pulls front to rear seems sturdy and the underlying flap will keep you from zipping up your dog's fur. The color is nice and the reflective tape works well, can actually be seen at night or dusk, which is certainly a great feature. The DuPont teflon is performing well, though with only a few uses I can't attest to the continued durability of the shell. though as with my other Ruffwear gear it will likely hold up through many rough days and fun adventures.
