    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Almost perfect

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    It is very hard for us to find jackets (or any dog product ) for our weim. She is very chesty, long and skinny. The med cloud chaser fits her pretty darn good. The jacket has keep her warm and best of all keeps the wind off her. The only thing we would change is to have the neck a bit larger.



    Overall the cloud chaser is a great doggie jacket and so far has preformed better than we had hoped.

    Almost perfect

    Pretty good but not great for deep snow.

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I have a small 42lb pit bull. The size small fit her well with exception to the arms and waist. The arms collected ice like the pooch in the post below. But due to my my girls very tapered waist , ice collected under the jackets stomach area and definitely made her more uncomfortable. She has very short hair and virtually no hair on her belly so a tight fit is essential. In the future I will probably put her Thundershirt over or under the jacket to keep her belly dry.

    That being said , the jacket works quite well if your not in several feet of snow. It worked well in 20 degree weather for my short haired girl so long as we moved a bit. I stuck my hand under the jacket and it was nice and warm in there. If your dog has a decent coat length and a bit of blubber the jacket will keep them cozy in 20 degrees.

    Pretty good but not great for deep snow.

    Mostly great

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I bought this for my 35lb GSD/Basenji mix.

    I have used it several times and today took her out snowshoeing with it. It keeps her dry inside but I don't see the familiar moisture drops forming on the outside like your typical waterproof fabric. However, it does seem to keep her mostly dry.

    The small fits snugly but the neck is a bit tight. I wish ruffwear had made this part elastic. I also wish that the legs had an elastic band at the bottom and you will see why by my photo-

    When in snow, balls form at the base of the legs. These are loose-bottomed and moisture creeps up the legs and chest. This was my one main stipulation.

    Mostly great

    Holding up to snow and brush

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Dog is 45# length is perfect, little bunch at neck. The belly part keeps snow from clumping on chest and provides some dryness even though Jager wants to lay down in it. After a month of wearing it multiple days no chaffing and its holding up to running through brush and the scratching his side. Bombing through powder amazingly has kept his covered underside dryer than expected.



    Holding up to snow and brush

    Nice quality but didn't fit

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

    The softshell material seems durable, and the underbelly stretchy fabric seems like it would be comfortable. I ordered a medium for my 50 lb. male coonhound/lab mix. He is slender but long. The fit was okay, except he would have peed right into the jacket. Yeah, not good. Nothing I can really do to fix that, so I'm returning it. Pretty sure a size small would be super tight and uncomfortable for him.

    Perfect Softshell for the Active Dog

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I take my dog with me just about everywhere. I made the decision long ago, that if I need quality gear, so does she. The Cloud Chaser is her go to layer for hikes and runs when the weather gets a little cold. It's also perfect as a windbreaker on mountain peaks. She's been using this jacket for about a year now, and we have no complaints.



    Isla is a Mini-Goldendoodle and weighs in at 24 lbs. She wears a size S, which fits well on it's own, or with her thin fleece layer underneath. The elastic fitted arm bands hold the jacket snugly in place, and trap warmth. The materials are soft, comfortable, and durable. The side zip works very well, and allows for easy on and off.



    We've been in light snow and rain with this jacket, and it does a great job of keeping moisture out. The only place it can get in, is the panel under her belly. This is a trade-off, as it also allows for a little breathability on the pushes towards the peak when she's really getting after it.

    Perfect Softshell for the Active Dog

    We love this coat

      I am a huge fan of Ruffwear. From jackets, to packs, to toys they're gear is always durable and well thought out. I have a size small Cloud Chaser for my 45 lb Australian Cattle Dog and it's a perfect fit. We use this jacket skiing or at night camping when temps get low.

      My favorite aspects of the this coat are the full body coverage, water/snow proof, and stretchy fabric for a dog on the move. I also have an overcoat that I occasionally put on ontop of the Cloud Chaser on colder ski days, but it's rare that I take her out when it's that cold. It's critical that the Cloud Chaser covers her belly, prevents snow ball from accumulating. Snow never clings to the jacket, it just slides right off and stays dry. She can run full out sprints without any hindrance. It's comfortable enough for her to sleep in when we're camping. Taking it on and off is easy, the zipper is sturdy and reliable. The interior has a soft fabric, and the leg loops work well. I also like the reflective trim to spot her easily at night.

      Overall I don't have any complaints with this jacket. It keeps my pup warm and comfortable without slowing her down. Highly recommend this product and Ruffwear in general!

      Another great jacket

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      My border/aussie Sahale loves this jacket. She fights me at first when trying to put it on but after that she is so happy. It is hard to chose this one or her ruffwear overcoat when we are out hiking.

      Another great jacket

      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!

      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.

      evidence of warmth!

      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.

      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?
