Fleece Dog Jacket
Perfect jacket for my dachshund.
I bought this jacket in XS for my 10 lb dachshund, Finn. It fits him perfectly! The material is very soft and the Velcro allows for easy on/off and adjustments to size. It actually covers farther down his back than I expected, being as long as he is. I'll certainly be ordering another one in preparation for Fall and Winter - not Finns favorite time of year.

Both Positive and Negative
My Chihuahua is on the large side at 10 lbs. with a very small neck but a longer and fuller body. I bought a small, which was too big, so I ended up with an extra small. I love this coat for indoors in the winter, but I can't attach the Velcro around her tummy all the way, and the exposed part catches on everything. The neck closure needs to be at its tightest, but for some reason there's a flap of fleece at the end without Velcro, and it just sticks out. The entire flap should have Velcro or at most leave a very small portion at the end. I don't know what the answer is as far as the exposed Velcro because there needs to be variability for different sized dogs, but it would help if there were more size options; it's not unusual to find dogs with small necks but larger bodies--or the reverse. The quality of the fleece is good. It's light but warm enough for indoors or a slightly chilly day. I have the squall coat for outdoors on cold days.

I like the purple, although would really LOVE to see this offered in turquoise in a heftier fleece and more generous sizing. However, my schnauzer is very cute in this, we like it!

Great except for the front straps
I like the feel of this coat and especially the color purple, but the front velcro straps were way too long, almost the same length of the body strap. Someone made a serious mistake in the design. They can be altered by a seamstress but it would cost more than the sales price of the fleece jacket. (This was ordered in a medium following the measurement guidelines on your website.

Soft and cozy
My miniature poodle looks quite dapper in the persimmon. The small fits him pretty good, just a little short in length (he's on the bigger side for a mini - 17 lbs but the medium would have been way to big) It works for fall evening walks and the reflective piping is a bonus.

Great color and warmth
My dog loves this jacket. She is part grey hound and tends to get very cold, despite her large size. She weighs about 65lbs and the XL is a little big, but I am afraid the L would be too small. She is oddly shaped with large chest/rib cage, small hips and neck. Wish it was a little hardier. She escaped our yard and went exploring in our neighbors woods, she came back with a few holes in the jacket.

EXCELLENT JACKET and super *EASY* to put on!!!
My dogs love their new jackets. They are the EASIEST jackets I've ever put on a dog. You place it on them like a horse blanket. There are two velcro straps which hold it in place. It is gives a perfect fit from the velcro. The only downside is that their bellies don't have much warmth from the coats. I have a jack russell with a skin condition / thin fur on her belly, so this jacket is not a good choice for her. For my other dogs, it's perfect! :) The price is AMAZING compared to comparable jackets which were not near the quality of this one. HIGHLY recommend.

Perfect size and fit. Nice how adjustable this comes. I wasn't sure what size to get. A medium fit my very small Chocolate Lab mix (38#) The reflective trim is perfect for when I walk my dog in the dark. I am ordering another one!!

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.
