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. The coated lower fabric doesn't allow dirt, snow, water, and other unwanted environmental substances to enter your house after a muddy hike or an epically dirty game of fetch. 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.

Quality/Value

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Original MSRP~$90-100

Purchase price-$33.58



Overall good quality jacket that my dog wears everyday all day when its cold as he is in and out of the house and we regularly go on walks and jogs throughout the day. I would say my knowledge on dog coats/Jackets is pretty up to par as I've been through many that just couldn't take the amount of wear that my dog and I put on it. This product also has some nice reflective strips on it so your dog and you can be easily seen.

Quality- 10/10 - Best coat/Jacket so far and I've used very cert many.

Comfort- 10/10 - Perceived, as I'm not wearing it and he's not complaining.

Cost- 10/10 - for the sale value, not full price. Great buy if you can get it below 60, and not a bad price around $70-80. Just remember you get out what you pay for, and this is a more quality product than your petsmart counterparts.

Practicality- 7.5/10 - Will take some getting use too especially if your dog is crazy when putting clothes on as this goes legs first, however its nothing extraordinarily annoying and my dog has learned how to put in on and take it off with time pretty easily. The zipper can be finicky in the beginning but I've found that it wears in nice.

Value- 10/10



I can easily justify this as a $30-40 and maybe even a $50 or $60 piece of equipment, and if it last a very long time maybe even $70-80 however close to 100 for a dog jacket is pretty steep and hard for many to be able to justify. If you can get this jacket for south of $60 and your dog is actively outside in the cold for long amounts of time I could not recommend this more. however, if your dog is only outside for a couple minutes to do their business then come back in I would recommend getting a cheaper product as this one is more than you would need and I would recommend the Kurgo Loft Jacket because thats what I use on my smaller dog that doesn't go out often and it suits him well enough. To conclude, I 100% recommend this product as it has no downside other than a steep original MSRP.

Quality/Value

Love Ruffwear but sizing is off

    I love Ruffwear but the sizing of this vest does not make any sense, 0.
    a. The neck is VERY narrow. Unless you own Italian Greyhound, I doubt anyone else can comfortably fit into this vest given other measurement alignment.
    b. Front leg setting is very narrow.
    c. length does not align with other measurements.
    I purchased XS from my poodle and got a tinny little vest that was fit for a Chi.
    Order one size up and got a LONG vest with a tinny little neck opening...
    Ordered a medium for my Border Terrier, and again, the neck is tinny but the length is fine.
    It's a great concept, but Ruffwear needs to work on their measurements.

    Love this jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Nice thin shell that I use for my bully as a rain coat/windbreaker. It fits him very well and looks cool too. He always gets lots of compliments.

    Love it

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this jacket because my dog 'goes hard in the paint' and loves playing in the snow. She has the type of fur that creates snow balls and I bought this little jacket to minimize that issue. It's been a great piece and it's made of high quality materials!

    Great jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this jacket for my short haired Shepard mix. It is a great jacket. It allows her lots of movement while keeping her dry and warm. She's very active dog and this jacket doesn't inhibit her at all. Great Purchase!

    Doggie Digs It

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought one of these jackets for my special girl to keep her torso dry when playing around in the snow. This past season we used it several times and I like it. It fits well, on the tight side which I think is better than loose, so it moves with her instead of limiting her movements. She is an active girl! As for keeping her dry it does a good job. I'd buy another if this one was lost or damaged.

    No more wet dog

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

    I just got this for my family pup. He's a goldendoodle and full of energy. He loves to be outside so we got him this coat to keep him dry and warm while playing in the Utah snow. I love the black option, it matches his black coat perfectly!

    Should have gone up a size

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My new dog is right in between the size small and medium, and I am going to exchange the small for the medium. The bottom is very stretchy, but the small was too tight on her. She is 45lb mix, but is very stocky around the neck and shoulders. I think the medium will be too long on her back, but I might be able to hem it up a little. If you're right on the edge of a size, I would suggest getting the bigger of the two.

    We have had this jacket for our golden retriever for a few years now and we love it. Helps keep the snowballs from forming!

    Should have gone up a size

    Great for in between weather

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

    XXS Fits perfect on my 9lb Min Pinscher/Chihuahua. Kept him nice and warm running through creeks on a 45-50 degree day.

    Dog Loves it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is the first jacket I've gotten on my dog that he hasn't tried to take off or that STAYS on him! The fit appears true to size. The soft shell is perfect for hiking and biking in the rain, snow or cold weather. So far its a great jacket!

    Great Quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Our mutt measures between sizes so we bought both the small and medium jackets. If he wasn't so broad in the chest we probably would have stuck with the small- but we settled on the Medium for length and all over comfort. The zipper sticks, you have to fold over the fabric to keep it from pinching. Overall quality is great and the color stands out.

    Fashion meets function

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Picked this up as an all around jacket for my 33lb Basenji (small). This jacket has considerably increased the time shes able to play in the snow. For her the fit is great and doesn't restrict any motion while playing. Tough enough to withstand aggressive doggy doggy play and just water resistant to keep her dry for a few hours.

    Ruffwear Cloud Chaser Dog Softshell Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This jacket is a game changer. My dog does not have a traditional two layer coat, but has curly hair instead of fur. His favorite place to be is playing in the snow and getting after it, however the snow freezes to his hair in big snow ball clumps on his chest, belly, legs and face. As a result we cannot play or hike for as long as either of us would like, but more importantly, once we are done, he has snow frozen all over his body which is a safety concern (from being cold and wet; yes we towel him off). This jacket almost entirely alleviates the issue. Not only does it prevent the snow from balling up on him, he stays completely dry, but maintains full range of motion while running and jumping and playing around. He actually gets excited when we grab his jacket because he knows we are going outside to have some fun.

    The jacket is a perfect fit (size small; he's 35LBs), snug but athletic, which plenty of stretch in the arms for full range of motion; no chaffing at all; keeps him dry in all coverage areas; durable softshell material; and it actually has some fantastic style! We could not be happier with this piece.



    Below are two pictures. One of my boy prior to purchasing/wearing the jacket and playing the snow, completely covered in frozen snow balls (the reason we needed to get him some coverage). The second is of him wearing the jacket and loving life!

    Ruffwear Cloud Chaser Dog Softshell Jacket

    Thanks for the interesting feedback EG Russell. Unfortunately, your post isn't relevant to my post; not about my dog or about the jacket which is what this review is about. More importantly my dog is not a doodle of any type, nor is he a poodle. He's a Lagotto Romagnollo, and we did adopt him. Also, I'm quite happy with is curry locks and gorgeous hair. Perhaps some more google research on your part is necessary? Or perhaps you should keep your comments relative to the product being reviewed and not the animal the product is helping. Cheers!

    Good Fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I purchased these for my mother-in-law who has two beagles. The dogs had never worn a jacket before and because of this she thought they didn't like wearing them and asked me to return them. They fit them well and seemed warm.

    Burried in Snow and Still Wagging Tail

    My customer took her pups with her on a snowshoeing trip and had her pups in these sweaters to help keep them nice and warm on their journey. Her pups did great in the snow and were happy the whole way!

    Stylish Protection

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We got this jacket for our Jack Russell to wear in the snow/rain and so far so good! We have a lot of Ruff Wear and have come to expect smart design, great fits and durable construction. This jacket is no exception to that!

    Great jackets for snow!

      I got two of these, a medium for a 46 pound Labradoodle that fits great and an extra large for an 80 pound goldendoodle. The extra large was huge around the neck and a large was way too small for him. I ended up tacking the neck on the extra large and it works great.

      Great jackets for snow!

      Little extra protection from the cold

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Our forty pound Lab/Pointer mix has a short coat and we wanted to get him something to keep him comfortable on longer days hiking in the cold. This jacket does the trick. A snug fit, but allows him to tear around just fine. I think this is a great choice for an active day, but I'd go with something a little more insulated if you're going to be sitting around (winter camping, ice fishing, or what not).

      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?
