Ruffwear’s dog coats and vest are a great way to safely and comfortably travel with your four-legged friend in the mountains and around town. I tested the Ruffwear Track Jacket along with the Ruffwear Quinzee while mountain biking, hunting & hiking. One of the best aspects of the Track Jackets was it’s high visibility which can be a literal lifesaver when trying to spot a dog running through the woods.
The blaze orange color was a must during hunting season. I have had numerous people stop us on the trail to tell us how smart it was to have such a bright colored vest. Another great feature was the reflective material that allowed my dog and I to run at night knowing that we were highly visible to any potential vehicles. The only downside to this vest is it picks up dirt quickly and will need to be washed often.
Once winter hit I switched out the Track Jacket for the Ruffwear Quinzee, one of the better Ruffwear winter coats. My first thought was “wow I have really been a bad dog owner over the past 4 years since I am now just putting a winter coat on my dog”. Now anytime my little girl goes outside in the snow she HAPPILY lets me put her into her Quinzee. The material is so soft, it feels like something I would like to wear and my dog surely does too.
Getting the Ruffwear Quinzee Jacket on and off is a breeze, you simply slide the coat over your dog’s neck and attach buckles on each side. And just like the Track Jacket ($39.95), the Quinzee ($79.95) has areas of highly reflective material on the jacket which allows you to safely walk your dog at night.
You really can’t go wrong with Ruffwear when it comes to vest and jackets for dogs. One thing to note is we did make sure to measure our dog’s girth so that we would have the proper sized Ruffwear Jackets and Ruffwear vest coats, be sure not to forget this step as it would be like ordering the wrong sized shoes.
