The Ruffwear Overcoat™ is our classic cold-weather utility jacket. This vest-style jacket is built with sturdy, durable materials to keep up with the most active dog. Wind- and water-resistant outer fabric protects against harsh elements, while interior recycled polyester fleece lining keeps body heat in. Side-release buckles on both sides provide easy on/off, and a leash portal allows the Overcoat to be worn over our Front Range™ Harness or Web Master™ Harness.

return product

did not get the chance the medium was to large, but thought it was pretty long, maybe someway to fold & give a choice on length, customer service fine.


We regret to hear that the sizing did not work for Dusty. Please contact us so we can help find a solution that works for both of you!

New coat

Extremely good quality we’re very happy with our new coat, although we think around the neck area it would be good to have it elasticated somehow to improve the fit around the neck and stop it being too tight.


Thank you for your review, we have passed your comments onto the design team

Substantial Quality

I have bought several over the years, and they always remain an excellent product.

Highly recommend

We needed a coat to keep Remington (15 y/o) warm and dry on our very slow, short walks. This jacket does the trick and it’s easy to put on and take off. While Rem doesn’t love it (he’s never worn a jacket before), he doesn’t hate it either, so that’s a win in my book. I’d definitely recommend this jacket to my friends and Ruffwear as well.

Overcoat Jacket

Works just great! My dog is a Pitty Mix, with very short fur. This coat comes in quite handy on our cold rainy days here in Oregon.
