Never see your dog shiver again—the Ruffwear Cloud Chaser Softshell Jacket's waterproof and windproof three-layer fabric keeps your dog at constant warmth, and it's still breathable so your pup won't get overheated.

Four-way stretch gives your dog a comfortable yet active fit which looks so good you'll wish Ruffwear made this jacket for humans too.

  • Dupont Teflon-coated fabric repels water, dirt, and snow
  • Insulating interior maintains heat so your pooch doesn't freeze
  • Four-way stretch keeps your dog comfortable and ready for action
  • Raglan sleeves maintain circulation through his or her limbs without limiting range of motion
  • Zippered closure so your dog won't wiggle out halfway through your adventure

Great coat for my Vizsla for backpacking

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this coat for my 42# female Vizlsa (medium fit well, tho her measurements put her into the small - tried a small and it was way too small). Just got back from using it every night while backpacking for 6 days. She was able to run, hike, play and sleep comfortably in the coat. At first I wasn't so sure if the sleeves would work - but they were great and the added chest protection was nice for both warmth and for avoiding bug bites. I also liked the way the zipper was on the side and didn't seem to bother her when sleeping (an improvement over the big clips on the side). The coat held up really well and still looks brand new. I would highly recommend it for active dogs who need an extra layer of protection. I was more impressed than I thought I would be and my dog really loved it! We will use it a lot!

Great review Cristine! Thanks for sharing!
Any chance we could get a pic of your pup in action?
We'd love to see!

Great Coat for Small Dogs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This coat is high quality and the XXS fits my 7 lb yorkie perfectly. It's been to the top of 14-ers, backcountry skiing/snowshoeing, and on numerous day hikes.

evidence of warmth!

evidence of warmth!

I compiled these three photos to show the difference of Doc's behavior at summits when wearing the jacket and not - When not wearing the jacket (top left) he finds the most sheltered spot available and curls into a little ball to keep warm. With the jacket, he rolls like crazy (top right) which is his typical behavior when "happy" - when we get somewhere "fun" he rolls - when we get home after a long day at work he rolls, etc. And then he's happy to sprawl out in the snow, post roll (bottom) giving more of the happy ridiculous look than the "I'm cold and miserable can we keep moving" look.

Eh maybe I'm anthropomorphizing a little but it is the best I can do since he can't talk and tell me what he actually thinks.

Layering on Clouds

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Doc loves his softshell and loves that it can be layered with his Webmaster Harness -- He reminds all dogs that layering isn't just for humans!

It seems to breathe super well for him (from what I can tell reaching under it when we stop) and cuts the wind (he doesn't hunker down behind trees in windy spots anymore when we're knocking out 4000 footers in NH). Great for dogs with enough insulation already - and those that need the warmth - remember to layer with the quinzee or similar.

Jacket means no snowballs on the belly for him - repels water/snow really well (better than my softshell actually!).

Tailored "athletic fit" means there's not bulk for him to trip on so his agility stays high.

I love that the red shows up well from a distance when he can't have his blaze orange track jacket on.

Snowball protection!

Neko loves this jacket as it helps keep the snow and ice balls from forming on her chest and belly during a day in the backcountry.

Just what I was looking for!

  • 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.

"BC" stands for Backcountry. But it's also acronymical (<-- is that a word?) for Border Collie. Here's mine, totally stoked and ready to rage, in about 9 feet of snow, wearing her RuffWear Cloudchaser.
When I tell my climber friends that my dog has a softshell, they raise eyebrows in skepticism, but this thing is full on. Not that Neutron (The Dog) cares (That's her whole legal name, parenthetically complete...), but this dog jacket sheds water as well as my Arc T Hercules does. Only she could tell you if it keeps her warm or blocks wind (it's not Windstopper...need it be?), but honestly, I'm not sure if dogs even care about that when there are sticks to be chased, plus she has not one, but TWO layers of coat, both of which I am allergic to. (I know, it's a drag...)
What it most definitely prevents, in my dog's case at least, are the dreaded fur, clot, balls-of-ice...thing...that happens on her belly. Actually, sometimes I don't wanna put it on her, because watching her try to walk and the look on her face when she's trying to process the meaning and consequences of the cantelope-sized spherical orbs that build up like so many dangling snowmen on her chest and belly fur is just downright HIGHlarious. A close second to when I strap her little dog shoes on and she takes those first guffaw-inducing exploratory steps. (i should upload a video of that...)

Anyway, other people have said the sizes run small. I'm not sure if I agree, but I do know that my BC is skinny, and she needed a medium, and our Aussie looked like an over-packed Lil'Smokey sausage when we attempted squeeze her into a small. So maybe those other people are right.

It zips totally shut, keeps out snow and is short enough on the underside that they don't pee on it. (important detail...)
The only thing I wish this coat had was a handle on the back so I could pick her up out of deep snow. Other than that, I love it.

5 stars...

Sizes run very small

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

i went by the size charts on ruffwear's website for these and when i received them it was much smaller than expected :(
On the bright side! it is made very well and looks great! as well
the water resistance is superb!
i ran it under the water in my sink and it just rolled right of like magic!

To cold for my dog in these temps. Had to add an additional layer

Responded on

Yeah, for -5 it'd be good to add a fleece or insulated layer underneath this. Cute pup!

Leg openings too tight.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I measured and ordered a L for my Vizsla/Lab Mix...fits him perfectly, even a little extra room. However, after an hour hike, his fur was rubbed off on the front of his front legs. I took a seam ripper and removed the end cuffs, which gave him an extra inch of room for each leg. Had the same problem with the Fleece Jacket. Once the cuff is removed, both jackets are fine. Took off one star for this problem. Otherwise, the jacket(s) are great.

the measurements don't reflect my dog(s)...

the measurements don't reflect my dog(s) at all. Do I go with the neck size or the length size..........are these in stores anywhere I could go and have them try on?

Responded on

Go with chest width instead. Ruffwear website has the chest width sizing information on it.

Sizing info online is completely wrong

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Based on the sizing info on this website (measuring neck width and length of body), I ordered a small. However, when I got the jacket it didn't fit my dog at all... I looked at the sizing info on the tags, it was completely different, using chest girth to determine size. Based on the tags on the jacket, I should have ordered a medium. Now I am losing money on return shipping for an item due lack of correct sizing information on the website. The jacket itself is nice, kinda thin but very well thought out with nice attention to detail.

Hi,
I'm totally unsure what size to get my dog. She's 47lb 17"neck and length if around 20"-22". How big is your dog?

Thanks,

Rob

Responded on

Hi Rob,
My dog is 44 lbs, 16" neck, chest is 27" around and length from base of neck to base of tail is 21". I ended up getting a medium and it fits her great. Measure your dog's chest and buy based on that. If your dogs chest is 27-32, get that, if it's 32+, look at a Large. It's a great coat, very well thought out and light but warm.

Responded on

My dog has the same measurements but a very deep chest -- a medium chokes her when she sits. Best to try it on in a store first!
