A high-performance option for dogs that venture outside regardless of the conditions, the Ruff Wear Powder Hound dog jacket is a hybrid combination of technical stretch fabrics and warm synthetic insulation.
This is Sam and we are taking a look at the Ruff Wear Powder Hound. This is a synthetic insulated jacket for your dog when the temperatures drop and you really need that extra bit of insulation to keep your pooch nice and warm. The insulation here is a 200 gram synthetic insulation. So it is very compressible. It is very lightweight. It has got a really high warmth to weight ratio and the thing I love about synthetic materials is that if they do become wet or damp they dry out quickly, but they also keep their thermal efficiency when they are wet. So you have got that here on the top. That is that baffled red part here. But then underneath this grey part down on the bottom is a very stretchy polyester material. It is almost like a very lightweight fleece. So it has got stretch to it. It is going to fit nice and snug, but as your dog runs and moves, if you are out ski touring and snow shoeing and that kind of thing your dog is going to have full range of motion. It is going to be really comfortable on them and it is just going to move really well.
The sizing here is going to be sized around the girth measurement of your dog, around the widest part of its chest. So you definitely want to get that measurement correct. That measurement is more important than the measurement here along the back. So you can see it is a little bit longer here on Sam, but he girth measurement is the most important part. Today he is wearing a small and it fits him really well.
There is a lot of other features with this piece. You have a little clip here or a little toggle point where you can attach the beacon light. So if the... you know, as the day goes on and it gets a little darker you will still be able to track them down. All along the back here you have got reflective piping so that is just an added safety feature there. And then if I turn Sam around here you have got the zipper for the jacket. So this is a full length zipper. It goes all the way up to the top. Got a little collar up here to fit nice and snug and with that stretchy material it is just going to fit really well. So on those chilly days on those cold nights your dog is going to have full range of motion and have a really comfortable synthetic jacket.
A very important piece of gear for most outdoor enthusiasts is a lightweight synthetic jacket. So why not have one for your dog? It is the Ruff Wear Powder Hound.
