Pet Squall Jacket
I LOVE this coat for my two dogs! A friend gave this coat to my dogs, even though I was anti-coat. It has been GREAT! It doesn't look like "clothes" (which I like), and the fleece lining keeps my older lab mix, who started getting cold in the winter as she got older, warm! My younger Chesapeake doesn't really need it for warmth, but I put it on her anyway when it's raining or snowing, b/c it's nice not to have wet dogs coming back in the house. I've had the coats on them in downpours and have NEVER had them get wet through in these coats. They stay in place really well, even when running, playing, rolling around in the mud/snow, at the dog park. I've had them for several years now, and they're holding up quite well!! I especially like the reflective trim and reflective strip on the back for walking in the evenings in the winter after work when it gets dark earlier in the day. With a black dog and dark brown dog that are hard to see in the dark, the reflective strips help them (and thus me) to be seen by cars. The coats are very easy to take on/off and adjust, and I haven't had the issue of the Velcro losing its grip as I have had with Velcro closures on horse blankets in the past. Both my dogs like their coats, but my older dog REALLY LOVES hers! She doesn't want it taken off when she comes inside :) The only recommendation I would have would be leg straps, like on a horse blanket, but I haven't had it actually come off, just a little sliding to the side on the back, on my narrower-bodied lab mix. Leg straps, as on a horse blanket would fix this, but some dogs might not like those, and the blankets do stay put really well.

Keeps my little girl warm in this -10 degree winter
OK, start with the gender confusion that comes from naming a little girl dog "Scooter," a typically boy dog name. Couple that with an owner whose favorite color is blue, and you end up with neighbors, groomers, and vet clinic staff who just assume she's a he.
Enter the coldest winter in 30 years!
I found the HOT PINK Pet Squall Jacket at the Lands' End store in my neighborhood. The M fits my 17-pound rescue baby perfectly. It keeps her warm on those evenings when it's -10 F and the wind is blowing at 15 mph.
She's outside wearing her hot pink Pet Squall Jacket and I'm wearing my Yellow Squall Jacket. We are a cozy pair, thanks to our Lands' End insulators! And no one thinks she's a boy anymore. The doggie boots are a whole other story (thankfully NOT from Lands' End...)

Love this dog Squall Jacket
I have bought several jackets for my little Puginese, never finding one that truly fit her and kept her warm and dry until now!! After measuring her, I ordered a medium, it fits perfectly! She seems to really like it. One thing I did to make it easier to feed the ring on her harness through the jacket, was to tie a ribbon on that ring and feed it through the jacket. When I go to clip her leash onto her harness I pull on the string and it is easily accessible. The pink jacket in contrast to her black coat is quite striking. She certainly stands out! I've donated all her old, ill-fitting jackets to the Humane Society in town. Thank you for providing such a great product.

Donating some to the local animal shelter
I was ordering a down vest for myself, and I came across these great dog coats at such a great deal, I ordered several for our local animal shelter. The dogs are in outside kennels during the day and in the winter time (especially this winter!) the staff at the shelter keeps the doggies warm and cozy with coats. I know that these are greatly needed. I challenge other Land's End customers to buy a few and donate them to your local shelter! Not only will it make a doggie warm and cozy, but it will make your heart feel warm.

Thin, poor quality, very disappointing
Land's End please listen to complaints from previous reviewers. The quality of this squall jacket is a mere shadow of the jackets from a few years ago. Thin fleece, cheap nylon, so light weight the back of the jacket flips over by the slightest bit of wind or shake from dog. How disappointing. The price remained the same but the quality is far below par. Please bring back quality of previous squall jackets that had the grey fleece. Also make a size XXL and have an additional strap so the back of the jacket stays put and does not flip over.
Land's End please listen to your customers and improve the quality of this product.

Perfect Dog Jacket
I bought this cute jacket in the red color for my white dog. I put this jacket on her every time she goes outside. I like the ease of putting it on and taking it off. The dog doesn't seem to mind wearing it. What I love most, besides the cute look of it, is the bright color and the reflective trim. These features are very helpful for owners of white dogs in the winter. It's easy to spot a dog wearing this jacket in the snow and dark.

Perfect for wet weather in DC.
Our boston terriers weigh 15lbs. The small fits perfectly.

Fits my 63lb. GSP
I have a German Shorthaired Pointer. This breed is not easy to fit because of their barrel chest and small waist. I purchased the XL and it fits great. Looks great. It goes on really easy and if you want to cover the neck more the collar turns up. Very soft and quality great. Getting one for my GSP puppy who by next year should be around 55lbs. Will get her a large.

Jacket is made well. Sturdy construction. Straps are long enough to provide some extra room should the
dog need it. Collar can be turned up or down. Reflective strip is VERY bright! I chose the orange with the navy fleece lining. The dogs are very comfortable in them and the coats stay on, they do not slip and slide. I chose to have their names embroidered. It looks great!! Great job on these coats Land's End!!

Great Dog Jacket
We bought this dog jacket in Nov 2011 and my dog loves it for rain, snow and cold conditions. The reflective trim works well at night, it cleans up nicely and its very easy to get on/off. This type of high performance for such a small price makes it an exceptional value. My only suggestion would be to offer a second version for colder or more extreme conditions.
