About Kurgo Gear
Kurgo believes that your dog deserves to go everywhere you go, safely and comfortably. Way back in the early 2000s, before dog travel gear was a thing, Kurgo set out to solve a problem: how to keep the family dog from jumping in the front seat of the car. After lots of brainstorming and prototypes, their Backseat Barrier was born. Twenty plus years later, they’re still finding new ways for you and your dog to go together in confidence.
After seeing the issues with the velcro, I wound up buying the Wilderdog fleece jacket for around the same price, and we love it! Kurgo products are normally brilliantly designed, so all this was especially disappointing: 1. The velcro is VERY loud. If your dog is OK with loud sounds in front of their face, this might work for you. 2. When reversed to the non-pattern side, the velcro rubs against the dog's skin/fur on their chest/belly- Ouch!! 3. When worn normally (pattern side out), the velcro patch is exposed on the belly, so it will collect all kinds of grasses, mulch, leaves, and mystery stuff on your adventures. That said, the coat fabric feels lightweight and I could tell that it would be warm after a few minutes (just like a lightweight down jacket for humans: the insulation is great after you wear it for a minute or two).
Our dog’s measurements are a bit unusual (neck 14, chest 24, back 24”, weighs about 30lb), making finding clothes for her tricky. The fact that this vest has an adjustable chest opening helps, but it’s still a bit too big at a medium. Love the colors and the adjustable zipper at the back, which accommodates a collar or harness leash attachment. We use it to help her keep warm on ski and camping days at the mountain!
We have purchased two of these. One for our pointer (MD) and one for our lab/pit mix (sm). Our lab mix has a slightly smaller chest than the pointer so we opted for the small ad the MD looked like she was wearing a bubble. The small was a little smaller than expected length wise. The neck on the sm I think could be a little wider too. The chest seems to be alright but she looks a little odd with the length. Overall it's taken some time for them to get used to the swoosh sound when they walk but they don't fuss or rub with this on like they did with fleece or cotton.
This is too tight for the size. Got this for an 8 pound Yorkee on the slender side. The jacket fits way too tightly. I have to loosen to max to make the tiny dog feel somewhat comfortable. I also tried one size up. That was too large. I wish they had something in between their sizes and the cut was not so tight. I don't recommend especially if your dog is on the chubby side.
The coat is a light weight jacket. I used the sizing cart and the jacket didn’t fit. If ordering go up one size.
I have bought numerous dog coats and sweaters for different dogs. This coat works very well on my shepherd/pit mix. She looks fabulous in it, as well. It seems to move with her & stays in the right position. I also bought the matching sweater to go underneath, and it is also very nice. It stretched out quickly, though, wish i could try a medium on her.
I bought the sweater in the same size. It fit perfectly. This item ran short in the torso length, as well as in the chest and waist circumference. The exposed velcro surface is the hook side, so it catches on everything. The straps would also work better if they velcro from the waist out, instead of from the sides into the center. Easier to adjust fitting and easier to put on a squirmy dog.
Good quality jacket I bought it big so my pup can grow into it hopefully it works for camping and when we go to the adirondacks.
Very impressed with this jacket, tho the XL is still a bit small for my mastiff. That being said, it fits well under my service dog's leather work harness and over her nylon off duty harness. When over a harness, the zipper up top is useful for access to a counter-balance or FMP strap/point. Keeps my service dog warm and helps keep me safe without having to lug around service dog gear for a simple potty walk
Fits my standard poodle well. Although she has a longer/thicker coat for winter, the jacket helps keep her just-blown-out coat smooth after her grooming appointment, otherwise the rain and snow creates a tight mass of frizzy curls...!
