The Overcoat is the classic cold-weather utility dog jacket, that is warm and durable (even if your dog loves running through the rough terrain and bramble!). And with a leash portal on the back, it can be worn over all Ruffwear harnesses & many other harness styles.


The Ruffwear Overcoat is the perfect dog coat for hiking, camping and everyday use.   It has a durable, wind and water-resistant outer fabric that sheds light moisture, while the recycled polyester fleece lining adds cozy warmth.  Being a vest-style, it provides both back and chest protective coverage.

Side-release buckles on either side of the coat provides easy on/off, and a leash portal allows the Overcoat to be worn over all Ruffwear harnesses (and many other harnesses).
