    The dog's got style.

    At this point, you've just conceded to the fact that your dog outdoes you at everything. That pesky pooch can run faster, jump higher, hike longer, and now, with the Ruffwear Fernie Dog Sweater, look cooler than you. Cozy sweater-knit fabric with a fleecy interior provides low-bulk warmth that dries in a flash when Spot takes a nosedive into the snow in hot pursuit of rogue chipmunks. Wish as you might, you can't slow your dog down, and the zippered closure, performance fit, and sleeved style won't either—this technical piece offers a full range of motion for active K9s. When flakes start falling, the Fernie can be layered underneath other Ruffwear coats. And no, it doesn't come in human sizes.

    • A technical dog sweater for cold and clear days
    • Quick-drying sweater-knit fabric provides low-bulk warmth
    • Sleeved style allows free range of movement while playing
    • Zippered closure for a performance fit and easy entry
    • Reflective trim and light loop keeps your dog visible

    Better Sweater for you pup

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My wife and I have a dachshund and she refuses to go outside in cold weather. This sweater changed her life for the better. It keeps her super warm and also allows her to walk around looking fly. You can tell this sweater was made with love. Buy now before winter is over!

    Cozy sweater for skinny dogs.

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

    Well built sweater that keeps my dog very warm! It doesn't fit nearly as well as other jackets/sweaters however. My dog is stout (Boxer/Pitty mix; 32" girth, 17"-18" neck, 22-23" length, 60 pounds) and even the medium hangs off her butt a solid 3". The small just looked ridiculous, like she was a body builder wearing a shirt 5 sizes too small. The sizing chart on this is simply wrong; It either puts her into a Small, or a Large, depending on which numbers used, but NON of the numbers put her into a medium. ???? The large hung off her butt by almost a foot - she could hardly walk. It fits so so: My biggest gripe about this sweater. The Cloud Chaser jacket fits her body style (not a long skinny tube of a dog) better than this sweater. Otherwise, this is a great sweater; just sizes VERY different from other dog sweaters/jackets that I have owned.

    My pup loves it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Shes a medium sized dog and on the slim side so this really helped add an extra layer of warmth to keep her toasty on those 30 degree nights in the tent. Perfect for your animal who likes to get cozy too. I also found this jacket very easy to put on

    Nice build quality and design

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The large size fits my 100 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback perfectly. He's very comfortable with it on but is not always cooperative about putting it on. My wife is a lot more patient than me. The burnt orange color looks great with his light brown coat. The build quality is very good and the zipper works smoothly. It's a huge upgrade from what we had before. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Cheers

    The better sweater for dogs!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This sweater is awesome, my dog seems to love it and it keeps him warm thats for sure. Haven't used it enough to know how well it's going to hold up to abuse.

    Nice Quality But Difficult to Put On

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love the look and feel of this jacket. It is high quality and warm for my pup. But it is simply too difficult to put on an active puppy that is excited to go play. Trying to get his front legs through the openings is difficult enough. But then, you also have to struggle with the zipper, which I found difficult to use. It tended to stick at the start and had to be held in place and perfectly aligned before it would start to zip close.
    I also found that it limits his movement. He is not able to stretch his front legs out in front of him. For example, he can't stretch in a downward dog position with this jacket on.
    I'm a big Ruffwear fan but this style of jacket does not work at all for my active puppy.
    Note: I ordered a Small for a 30-lb German Shorthaired Pointer puppy. The fit was great, though he quickly grew out of it.

    Great sweater.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    A medium fits perfectly on my 60lb lab/german Shepard mix. He definitely is warmer and enjoys playing outside in the cold more with it on.

    Perfect for a really small dog

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We have a 5 lb maltese who hikes 14'rs and her jackets never have enough length. The xxs was the best fitting jacket we've ever gotten her and she looks like the mountain dog she truly is!

    Nice sweater

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like the reflective stripes on each side of the sweater. Our dog is between sizes (Large and XL). We went with the XL and had to have it altered as she is very tall and long, but skinny (greyhound). The color is beautiful and the fabric is very soft and well made.

    Perfect jacket for my dog!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have a heeler mix who doesn't ever want to stop running, rain, snow or shine, but his shorthaired coat doesn't always do the trick when we want to be out for several hours on snowy trails. This jacket is the perfect addition to his personal fur coat, it provides some warmth and insulation without overdoing it and causing him to pant non stop.
    I am super stoked on it, the green looks great in person as well.

    Exactly what our GSP pup needed

      We love hiking with our dog, but she's a fair weather animal--shivers on a windy day in the 50s, protests in full sun in the 80s. This coat (in a size small, she weighs 50 pounds), fits our 10 month old German shorthaired pointer perfectly, and lets us take her on day hikes and backpacking trips worry-free about her comfort. Great for similarly active dogs with shorthaired coats.
