Fleece Dog Jacket
Sizing a bit off
I already owned the Large Squall dog coat which I love so I bought this in a large. This one is too big so had to send it back. It's nice though and although it is thinner than the one I purchased from you several years ago, it's still okay for fall and chillier weather. Purple color was very nice.

Perfect addition to my rescue dog's wardrobe
My dog is an adopted Rhodesian Ridgeback-pitbull mix with very short and thin fur. This jacket fits Rita very well, and everyone adores her name on the rear. I would not expect to wear a fleece coat myself when the temps dip low, and that is why I purchased the squall jacket for Rita as well. The description notes this is for spring and fall mornings. I certainly agree. I also want to thank Lands' End for using shelter dogs only in online and print catalogs. A rescue pet is truly grateful and gives so much love. Pets are dumped through no fault of their own, but through an owner's irresponsibility. I hope more companies will follow this wonderful practice.

Great lightweight jacket
I've bought two of these, one several years ago for my last dog, a 90 lb Rhodesian, and one a couple years ago for my current dog, a 14 lbs Mini Schnauzer. I keep my house very cold during the night, 55 degrees, which is too chilly for dogs with no coat, or shaved, to sleep comfortably. I use these as "jammies" and they sleep comfortably without all the constant readjusting as they try to get warm. It's also great for outdoor use on its on when it's chilly, or as a base layer when it's frigid. I also really appreciate the reflective trim as I often take my dog to a field for off-leash play after dark and he's easy to spot with my flashlight/headlamp. They wash and dry easily (except the velcro, even when closed, sticks on everything) and so far seem to hold up really well.

Cheapest jacket I have ever bought
This fleece is so flimsy, I cannot imagine it keeping any dog warm and my dog has alot of fur. It also fits him perfectly around neck and belly but much too short, does not even cover half his back. Total waste of money.

Not a good choice for cold weather
Ordered this for my boxer mix It is described as warm but if you live in a zone like me with really cold winters you will not be able to use it. The material is too thin and is really not a fleece at all. Had to return it.

Fleece is much thinner than I expected.... and the Velcro tabs are just not quite right. There is too much fabric at the ends so there is always something hanging (no matter how it is adjusted). Sorry - not the quality I expect from LE.

Min Pin Loves It!
My min pin loves her coat. She gets cold very easily and this coat fits her perfect. Its a great weight for fall and spring. Going to order her the quilted version for winter. The neck fits her perfect and i love that the belly is adjustable. She looks adorable in it. Great product!

I like it more than my dog does
Poor Spencer, my little thin-haired Yorkie is always so cold, he needs a sweater all winter. I got this little jacket for added warmth to wear when he goes out to do his business. It goes on in a snap. Getting it off is just as easy but I can tell Spencer hates it when he hears the loud 'RIP' of the Velcro. Another plus for me is I can just refasten the neck and use the neck hole to hang it up to dry. Since winter has finally hit here in the Midwest, I'm glad I bought this.

It ripped within a month.
So cute, so warm -- but the fabric is not strong enough to support the velcro fastenener. The fabric on the size small purple fleece jacket ripped during the first month of use. I am sending it back and I'll ask to be sent another one. Maybe this failure is just a fluke. I hope! The Squall jacket works nicely in the recent snow and rain we've been having here during January 2012 in the Midwest.
