Features Of The Kimfoxes Poncho Dog Raincoat

1. Material

This dog raincoat is made with PU material or PU leather. So, what is PU leather? PU leather is basically, man-made leather material with a  look and feel resembling that of genuine leather.

As much as it looks like leather, it is not. It is far less durable, tends to stretch like a spandex material due to its pliability. It is also thinner than real leather.

There are some good sides though, it is shinier than real leather. Also, it’s waterproof, not water-resistant, so water does not pass through this material at all. Plus, the material is easy to clean and maintain as well.

The best thing about this PU material, when compared to genuine leather, is that it is a lot more affordable. If you’re trying to cut cost on all corners, this material is a good way to go. We’re sure you know that the cost of a dog raincoat, most times, is heavily dependent on the kind of materials used.

At the end of the day, if you’re looking for a more affordable alternative to leather, this would suffice and do the job absolutely well.

 

2. Color

This dog raincoat is available in several different colors including blue, light blue, orange, pink, red, and yellow.

All these colors are great. They’re beautiful, and at the same time, quite functional as they’re easy to see in the dark. This is an important feature you want in a raincoat since it can get pretty dark when it rains. Plus, you might also want to use this at night. You wouldn’t want to have a hard time keeping an eye on your dog.

To add to the visibility of this dog raincoat, the manufacturers added a reflective stripe on the back which is another thing we like about this raincoat. You can also get a glow-in-the-dark collar to increase visibility.

What Do People Think?

People think that this product is pretty good. Does what the manufacturers said it will do, and sizing isn’t much of a problem. As long as you’re following the sizing chart, it’s pretty comfortable.

Only problem is that shipping back is stressful, if you intend to return the raincoat. Plus extra cost of shipping is taken out of your wallet.

 

 

What Do We Think?

An average product. It’s good enough though and will keep your pooch dry for longer periods than most. It also comes with a hoodie for extra protection.

Our only problem is that the bottom of the raincoat is open which means that if your dog’s belly is close to the ground, it’s going to get all wet during the walk. However, this remains a decent product nonetheless.
