My dog is 29lbs and she is a hound/boxer/Italian greyhound mix therefore she is on the slimmer side. She gets very cold in the winter and dreads going on winter walks but this is so warm that it keeps her super super comfortable outside for longer walks!
Our dog has a 23” chest and 21” back and we went with the size large. It fits her perfectly with room for a sweater underneath.

I love the coat for my Minnie and how it keeps her snuggly warm. You need two people to put on this snowsuit. I’ve been practicing for a couple of weeks now. Minnie’s getting used to it. I’m having some difficulty judging how tight to draw the strings; her paws do come out of the leg holes adjusting from lying down to standing up. I think this coat could be difficult to do alone unless you have a dog willing to be very still. Minnie wants to walk away. I really like the zipper on top and the fit is so nice. She’s adorable in it; she looks like an aardvark.
Make sure you measure carefully, and follow their guide. If your dog is between measurements, go with the larger size.
Great suit- Wish it had velcro
on Dec 30, 2020
The suit itself is great. My shichon/teddy bear fits well in the smallest size. She’s about 11 lbs. What I wish was different is the ease of putting it on- while you’re trying to get all of the paws in, they slip out of the ones you’ve already done even if you pull the paws tight. I wish there was a Velcro strap in the middle or of top to help hold it there while you’re putting them in it. Other than that, it’s exactly as advertised!
Quality but too small
on Dec 31, 2020
I was so excited for this jacket. Unfortunately it’s too small for my pup. I can zip him up completely but then he can barely move.. My boy has a really deep chest which makes it so hard to find a body suit jacket for him. I wanted something to block with the wind and help keep him warm in his old age. I sorta hoped the size chart had some wiggle room but it doesn’t.. so if your measurements are even an inch or two off, then size up.. chewy was incredibly quick to respond to my return request
So Close...but Nope!

I have a dog that successfully fits in NOTHING. We have purchased from Ruffwear, Hurtta, Canada Pooch, RC Pets and tried maybe 12 coats in several size options with not much luck. She is a Sato from PR, and is all sorts of things, but an easy fit she is not. We need a warmer suit with legs to keep crud off her feathery fur in the NE, where we get tons of rain, snow, snizzle, and muck.
This suit runs narrower than most brands, which was a positive for us since she shaped like a cigar with raisin legs, more like a dachshund with thicker fur. She is super small in the chest (18.75”) and waist (15”), with a length of a little under 18.” The medium fit nearly perfectly in every part except for theI have a dog that successfully fits in NOTHING.

She is super small in the chest (18.75”) and waist (15”), with a length of a little under 18.” The medium fit nearly perfectly in every part except for the front of the chest, over her front legs. There it was too tight. Circumference of the chest was fine, it was the width of the front chest panel that made it so she couldn’t lift her legs. Ironically, the leg length was great. SMH.
Anyhow, this could work for you if you lean towards a larger size. I did not size up or add 2” as some have suggested. The next size up would have been too long for us. The quality of the suit was mid-range- zipper seemed a little suspect, but I was more impressed with the material and construction than I expected to be. Fabric had a decent feel and stitching was okay, not spectacular. Seems warm and moderately waterproof from first glance and feel. Zipping hair in the zipper would be an issue with longer haired dogs. But even the short leggeds could use this suit with success. Chewy was, as always lovely and prompt to work with in order to get a refund.… more
stupendous amazing sleek perfect
on Jan 11, 2021
This coat is perfect and true to size. When I placed the coat on my dog, I could immediately tell a difference in his demeanor. He was confident. He felt beautiful for the first time in years. He couldn't get outside quick enough to show off this 'coat of many colors' -like apparel. The compliments from strangers are always positive and sincere with a hint of jealousy. I can see the way other dogs look at him, wishing they had his fashion taste. Begging for their owners to buy them a coat. Nevertheless, this jacket is 100% the drip of the season. Its a must buy.
Great full body coat
on Jan 2, 2021
This is a replacement for a Helios Blizzard jacket I purchased a few years ago. My dog & I go on walks twice a day (every day! rain or snow or shine!). Our route has plenty of bushes that he must inspect so I was happy the original Helios Blizzard jacket I purchased has lasted this long. I have a 15lbs Malti-poo. He is 17" long from neck to tail & 12" tall from floor to the top of his shoulders. A medium fits him length wise but I do have fold the legs once so his paws don't get stuck on our walks. It's really easy to get it on and off. It definitely keeps him warm and keeps most of the dirt off his underside.
Bad Sizing chart
on Dec 27, 2020
Even though I followed the size chart the jacket was too short for my dog. I have a 47lbs short coat border collie, and the neck which should have been big on him was tight, the chest was too tight and the jacket was waaaaayyyy too short. Poor guy couldn't properly move his hind legs in it. Going to try again with the XL. Hopefully it won't be stupid big around the neck and chest. Sucks because the coat is actually very well made. The quality is worth the money. But the sizing is a major problem.
Good Quality suit
on Dec 27, 2020
This is a good quality snow suit. It has a reflector and has good coverage. The only thing is it’s a bit short on my dog’s legs. I ordered a Medium for my 18 pound Cavalier King Charles. He is a little tall for his breed, but I think a Large may have been too baggy on him, but should have tried a Large. Overall it’s a good suit.
Great cold weather jacket!
on Jan 8, 2021
I originally ordered my dog a medium, but had to exchange for a small. He is 12 pounds. We wore this the entire time for our hiking trip up in North Carolina. This jacket kept him warm and dry. It is a little difficult to put on, but with practice it gets easier. It is very high quality material as well.
