Product Review: RC Pets West Coast Rainwear

The RC Pets West Coast Rainwear is a lined blanket-style coat that comes in five colors and 13 sizes to fit dogs that measure 6"-30" from neck to tail.

This is the jacket that Brisbane wears most often in the winter. This is a blanket-style coat, it closes around the front of the chest and under the belly like a horse blanket. This style isn't as warm as something that covers the whole chest between the front legs, but it offers more freedom of movement.

Brisbane measures 23" from the base of his neck to the base of his tail. I bought him a 24" coat because length is important, covering all the way to the base of the tail helps keep the dog warmer. This coat is very easy to put on and take off, so Brisbane doesn't mind it too much.

Pros: Large range of sizes to fit dogs of many shapes. Does not chafe or rub, even when the coat is a bit big. Reflective stripes for good visibility. Plenty of coverage, Brisbane is protected from his earbeards down to his buttfluffies. Warm, waterproof, and allows for movement.

Cons: Doesn't come in pink for fashionista chihuahuas. Leaves some of the underside of the dog exposed.

Bottom Line: We don't get a lot of cold weather out here by the beach, but this is the coat I grab for those rare frosty mornings. Brisbane normally hates clothes, but he doesn't mind his West Coast Rainwear when it's really cold.
