Fleece Dog Jacket
Great dog coat, just get the right size
I purchased these coats about 2 years ago and I loved them. I reordered, getting the next size up since the first coats were on the small size. Well, the next size up was much too big. When I rechecked the size description it appears the sizing has changed since my last purchase. So, a great coat but make sure you get the size you need by reading the sizing description.

Sizing is not consistent
I adopted my chihuahua mix dog last week and he came with a Land's End fleece jacket in a size small. Since it's so perfect for him, I ordered another jacket from Lands End just like it in another color as well as a squall jacket in the same size, but they just arrived and they are larger than the one I already have and don't fit him properly. The problem is that according to the sizing guidelines, the XS will be too short. I'm very disappointed.

Perfect fit for my bulldog
I purchased this in an XL for my American Bulldog (100 lbs) and it fits him like a glove. It keeps him so warm and cozy. It is lightweight fleece,and its the first thing that has fit properly, ever. He likes to keep it on, ha! I am purchasing more!

My little Havanese,"Sadie", received this fleece dog jacket for Christmas 2013. I loved it when I first saw it. Was uncertain as to how "Sadie" would like it. I put it on her & she immediatley started to prance around in front of the whole family. After we stopped laughing, I saw how cute it was on her. In fact, she likes wearing it in the house & even sleeps with it on. I can't say enough about how "Sadie" & I love this jacket. Would definately buy it again!

Great but becareful washing it..
My dog loved it and so did we. It isnt heavy but keeps in a lot of heat. The reflected edges are great too. I got the red and 1st time washed no pilling. Cam eout looking new. The issue was when I washed it with other clothes it came out ripped and had a hole. :(
I am sending it back to get a new one and will wash it on delicate or by hand from now on. It is great and I am hoping it was just a rare thing since this is such a good jacket and my dog loves it so much. He is very old and has short hair. This came in handy since we live in Michigan and lost power for over a week. Our house was freezing cold and it kept my old boy warm.

Cozy and Adjustable
Bought these for an Airedale and a Welsh Terrier. They are a good value when they are on sale, especially compared to what is available in other stores. Light enough to keep them warm on cold floors and outdoors, but not so heavy that they pant all the time when wearing them. I got smaller sizes for indoors, and the recommended size for longer walks. They do flap a little in strong winds, but too many straps would make them confining. The reflective tape is nice, and there is enough room for the males to do their business without getting the jacket wet. My dogs seem to really like them, especially after their haircuts.

Adjustable and Cozy
I got two of these for my senior Airedale girl and for my always cold Welsh Terrier boy. The material is light, but these are also made for dogs with fur, so if they are too heavy, the dogs will pant all the time and be hot. These are nice for being in the house and for short walks when it is very cold. If it is windy, they do tend to flap around, but that is because the Velcro straps are minimal. Too many straps, and the dog can't move freely. I shopped around, and these are a good value. Fleece is hard to find in dog "clothes", the colors are cute and the reflective tape is nice. My dogs like to wear them, especially when lying on the cold floor. I am happy with the fleece jackets. I got smaller sizes than the measurements recommended, so they look a little skimpy in the picture, but they fit well and don't sag. The grape color is classy!

Decent jacket - Not for longhaired dogs
Our Golden LOVES cold weather, so we weren't looking for a jacket that would keep him warm. He doesn't need it. We mainly wanted something that would keep him from getting completely soaked to the bone when we get that awful heavy, wet snow. This jacket does the trick well enough. The XL fits him nicely and he's on the larger end of the size range for a Golden. He's big-boned, long and about 82 lbs.
This jacket would be just about perfect for our needs, if it weren't for the Velcro closures! I know that probably about 99% of the dog jackets out there are made with Velcro closures, but as I (and my poor boy) have found out: Long-haired dogs and Velcro closures do not mix! It's nearly impossible to get this thing on and off without getting his hair stuck in the Velcro. I managed to do it once and thought we were good, but the minute he moves, his hair still gets stuck on the rougher side of the Velcro. (We can't fasten it all the way, as tight as it will go, so there's always some exposed Velcro to snag and pull his hair.) It bothers him enough that he obviously doesn't like wearing it.
I really wish that Lands End would offer this jacket with snap closures to accommodate long-haired dogs. Without the Velcro, it would be perfect.

Ted dog's coat
Ted is a shelter dog who received his Land's End coat last Christmas. He weighs 65 pounds and the XL fits him perfectly. He thinks he is very handsome when he trots around outside but mostly, he likes it for naps.

Love this jacket!
This XS fleece jacket fits my 6-lb. Chihuahua perfectly. The quality is excellent - I've had this jacket for 3 years, and it still looks nice despite numerous washings. The velcro is perfect - it's very easy to get on and off an energetic dog who has a hard time sitting still. I bought a couple of jackets that had to be buttoned or zipped, and they were too much trouble. The velcro also allows me to adjust the sizing a bit. I had trouble finding a jacket that fit Bella well because her proportions are a little off - she is longer and has a slightly bigger ribcage than a lot of Chihuahuas. This jacket fits her very well. I have recommended it to numerous friends. Bella also has the Lands End squall jacket and raincoat. I love them all!
