Who Can Wear The RC Pet Products Outwear Dog Raincoat?
Any dog can use this raincoat, provided his size is available. It is comfortable for any breed.

To determine what size would be good for your pooch, you need to measure him. Measure his length (back length), and his girth (chest girth) (in inches), and check with the company’s sizing chart (see picture below) for one that fits.

Features Of The RC Pet Products Outwear Dog Raincoat
This dog raincoat comes in a double-layered design. What we mean is that it has one material as its shell (covering, or outer-layer), and another as its inner-layer or lining.
a. Outer Layer (Shell)
The manufacturers didn’t say what this shell is made of, but they did say that it is made with lightweight, water-repellent material.
From the looks of things, and from customer reviews, the manufacturers were not lying. This shell does a pretty good job at protecting your pooch from the rain.
The inner-layer of this dog raincoat is made with fleece, i.e., it is fleece lined.
Fleece is a warm, soft, and cozy material. Being on the inside of this dog raincoat, you can rest assured that the RC Pet Products Outwear Dog Raincoat will keep your pup warm.
If you live in areas that get really cold (sub zero climate conditions), this is really important.
Also, if your dog is young, sick, aging, or is short-furred, this is extremely helpful to them, because these such dogs are more likely to be affected by the cold.
This dog raincoat is available in a wide range of colors. But here’s our advice, go for a color that has a high-visibility, i.e., one that can easily be seen in the dark.
If your pup is easy to see in the dark, it’d be much easier to maintain and monitor his movement, which would keep him safe all the time.
Anyway, all the colors of this dog raincoat come with reflective patches patterned like honeycombs, which are also good for visibility.
Pros Of The RC Pet Products Outwear Dog Raincoat
1. Sizes Available
Honestly, this dog raincoat is available in so many sizes, there is hardly anyone that would say there is no size available for their pup.
More so, with this product, the sizing is mostly right. Yes, there would be one or two instances where the sizing was wrong but the chances are very low.
2. Leash Access Hole
Another good thing about this dog raincoat is that it comes with a leash access hole which lets you easily pass your leash through to your dog’s harness or collar.
A lot of customers complained that this dog raincoat didn’t come in the color they saw in pictures.
In the pictures, the colors are really bright. But apparently, in real life, they appeared a little dull.
This dog raincoat does not provide a covering for the head. This could be a problem.
