Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have a 23lb Boston Terrier who I want to feel more comfortable on the cold days we go snowshoeing and hiking. I like the chest protection, and after several hours on the snow and temps that ranged from 19-40 degrees F, he was doing fine. When I took it off, it was dry, including the stretchy chest fabric.
A note on sizing: His girth is 22", so I opted for the Small size. It was too long under his belly and would interfere with urination. If you have a male dog who is big in the chest and short in the body, this might be an issue for you, too.
So I returned it and got the XS and it's a snug but very good fit. No chafing or rubbing and it stays put. The zipper is a little difficult to get started, especially with cold fingers, but once it's zipped up, it's very secure.
So far, no issues at all. Very pleased with this. If over time I see an issue, I'll report back.
