PuTwo Reflecta Dog Raincoat — Detailed Review

Hello guys! Today, we’ll be reviewing a particular dog raincoat- the PuTwo Reflecta Dog Raincoat, nicknamed “Reflecta”.

The company that brings this to us is PuTwo. PuTwo, though not the manufacturers of this product, are the retailers of the product. PuTwo is a retail store that started offline in Hong Kong, in 2013. After just 10 months of operation, this company had built more than 200 offline stores which covered the major cities in China.

The brand says its model of the company is to deliver high-quality products from the manufacturers to the customers, all at reasonable prices.

With just 5 years of experience, PuTwo is still a growing brand. However, the brand gives you a platform to trust by guaranteeing you a 30-day money-back. If you do not like any product purchased from this brand, you can request a refund within the first 30 days of purchase. Terms and conditions apply, see the company.

Seeing the company will be easy, as this brand claims to have a “world-class, friendly support team” to meet the customers’ every need.

Okay! So, do we know enough about the brand? Great. Want to find out more about them? Head on to their site here.

Features Of The Putwo Reflecta Dog Raincoat

Now that you’ve probably found a size for your pup, it’s time to talk about this dog raincoat in detail. Let’s get into the features.

1. Material

This dog raincoat is made with PVC. Yes, the same material used in making your plumbing pipes. However, these are a little lighter. As much as they are plastic, they are also fabric. PVC is a great water-resistant material.

Another thing to look at about this material is its weight. This is made with plastic (PVC), so, you can easily tell that it’s not that lightweight. However, there’s a difference between this material and the likes of fleece and cotton.

This material is heavy, fleece and cotton are thick. What this simply means is that, for a small dog, plastic clothing would probably be too much weight for them to carry. While on the other hand, using a thick material like fleece keeps them warm, but is still light enough for them to carry around.

2. Color

This raincoat is available in two different colors- red and green. These two colors appear shiny because of the type of material used in making the raincoat. When choosing the color of raincoat, it is important to go for colors that are easy to pick out in the dark.

These two colors are easy to see in the dark and their shiny look make them even better. Another thing that makes this dog raincoat even easier to pick out in the dark is the reflective stripes it has. These reflective stripes are basically glow in the dark lights embedded in the dog raincoat.

3. Hoodie

Another feature of this dog raincoat and the final one we’re going to talk about is the hoodie. This dog raincoat comes with a hoodie to cover your pups’ head and protect it from the rain.

However, there’s a twist. Calm down, it’s a good twist- the hoodie is removable. The hoodie comes with several buttons on the neck. These buttons basically help fasten the hoodie. If you lose these buttons, you’ll be able to remove the hoodie. If you prefer the hoodie on, you simply put it on and fasten the buttons.

Pros of the PuTwo Reflecta Dog Raincoat

1. Leash Access Hole

This dog raincoat comes with a small slit at its back. This slit is for you to pass your leash through. If you want to use a dog raincoat outside your house, you need a hole like this. A hole where you can pass your leash through and clip it to your dogs’ harness or collar.

While this is a pro, we must not fail to point out one shortcoming. With this slit open throughout your walk, small droplets of rain will be able to escape and get to your dog. Being that the neck is a quite sensitive area, we think this isn’t good. The leash access is good, but it should’ve been coverable.

2. Adjustable

This dog raincoat is pretty adjustable. It comes with drawstrings for the hoodie. These drawstrings basically give you (the dog parent), the opportunity to determine how tight or lose the hoodie get to be. This you will do to help your dog maintain maximum comfort.

Cons

1. Not Good For Skinny Dogs

A lot of customers whose dogs were skinny or didn’t have long thick furs complained that this dog raincoat didn’t fill out. This dog raincoat isn’t made snug-fit, so, your dog having hair is what fills out the raincoat and makes it fit.

If your dog isn’t hairy, you should consider other dog raincoats because this would never fit him properly. This is independent of the size you get. These complaints were from customers who purchased the right sizes.

2. Scratches Against The Boys’ “Member”

Some customers who used this dog raincoat for their pooch found out that it was too long it touched the dog’s penis. This will make your boy very uncomfortable and that is not what you want.

Aside from his comfort (which is, of course, your number one priority), another thing you need to ask is, “how will he pee?” do you really want to go out with him every time it’s raining to help lose the raincoat so he can pee?

3. Too Heavy For My Little Poochy

If you have an under-5lb dog, this might be a problem. Just like we pointed out earlier, this dog raincoat is made with plastic and because of that, it’s quite heavy. This is especially true for really small dogs.

The dog would simply stand there and not move because the dog raincoat is too heavy for them.

What Do Other People Think?

Well, people are angry at the fact that they can’t get this for their boys. They’re also mad at the fact that they can’t buy it for their skinny dogs, or small dogs. Basically, this dog raincoat is too picky and that is just annoying!

 

 

 

What Do We Think?

Not worth the price. Too many problems. It looks like an unfinished product. Needs to go back into the factory.
