This is a very good jacket. The reflector strips on it work very well, it velcroes on easily, the little mesh back pocket is very handy for carrying empty poo-bags.
I have a dog with literally no fear of cars or the road, and though I have her trained to stay near the curb, occasionally she will try and stray out on her leash when a car is coming. I take no chances and want to make sure they see my dog, even if we are in the grass or along the curb (there are no sidewalks in my living community). My only complaint is that the jacket fits loosely on my sighthound, now matter how well I strap it. So eventually during the walk it slips off and I have to re-adjust it. So if you have a sighthound, I would recommend going with a jacket from a business that you know makes them specifically for sighthounds, or just use reflector tape on your dogs current jacket. For those with ordinary dogs that are not greyhounds, whippets, borzoi, etc, this is a great purchase.

Nice jacket. However, I measured my 35 lb. pup and ordered a medium, according to the sizing chart. I would have been better off ordering a large. The jacket is a tight fit around the middle and the collar is included in the overall length which is shy of the actual chart measurment to begin with.

Coat size: XL.....an XL fit a tad long in the rear of it, but presented no problem; otherwise, it fit well.
This coat is well made and fits as described. My dog is a 70 lb. pit and gets cold easily as she has very little fur. This coat keeps her warm in temps down to 32 degrees if she is exercising. It is easy to get on and off using one large strap that connects around her neck and another large strap that connects around her chest; both straps use velcro to connect. A slit is provided in the coat that allows a lease/lead to connect to a collar worn under the coat; 'Daisy' wears no collar but it is easy to put on the harness she wears over the coat.
This coat is not water resistant at all. Rather than buying a waterproof coat for wet weather, I cut out an appropriately shaped piece of plastic sheeting that fits over this coat; the sheeting is easily held in place when it's placed over the coat and Daisy's harness is placed over the sheeting.
I was very happy with the customer service/delivery the seller provided.
