Features Of The Usefulthingy Dog Raincoat
The UsefulThingy Dog Raincoat is made with a double-layered design.
The outer layer is made with nylon and the inner-layer is made with fleece.
Nylon is a great water-resistant material. In fact, it is slightly better than polyester and will keep your pup dryer for longer.
With nylon covering your pup, you can rest assured that your pooch will remain completely dry throughout the period you guys would be outside.
However, you also have to note that nylon is not a super strong material.
With that in mind, if you eventually buy this dog raincoat, do make sure that you take extra care so that you don’t rip the material, especially when washing.
Another thing is that nylon doesn’t withstand high temperature, so, this would have to be as far away from fire as possible.
Also, avoid ironing and only air dry.
Fleece is a soft and warm fabric. When it is cold and our pups are outside, to ensure they don’t get cold, a little extra warmth is needed.
This extra warmth — and even insulation — are provided by the fleece in the inner-layer of this raincoat.
And who wouldn’t love a raincoat that can serve as both a raincoat and a sweater?
This product is available in 3 different colors; black, blue, and pink.
Anyway, we advise on getting either blue or pink. This is because either of these two colors would be easier to see when it’s raining and the clouds are darkened, compared to black.
Aside being pretty, the reason for the colors on dog raincoats is to make your dog easily visible. So that he never goes out of sight.
Pros Of The Usefulthingy Dog Raincoat
1. It’s Made For The Trail
One thing we love about this dog raincoat is that it is built for the trail.
How do we know?
Well, if you inspect the product, you’ll notice that it’s made like “puppy jerseys”.
You know those “dog jerseys” used in dog sports? Yeah, that’s how this is made.
Because of that, this is very sturdy, which means that it will not be left flapping in the breeze.
No matter how much or how fast the wind is, this will completely cover your pup.
2. Leash Access Hole
This dog raincoat comes with a leash access hole.
The fact that this is built for the trail makes this leash access hole that much more important.
You don’t want to take your pup that far without a leash, it’s dangerous on so many levels.
The leash access hole is covered by a zip. This ensures that while you get your leash through to your dog, the hole doesn’t give room for rain to come in and touch his neck.
As you know, the neck is a sensitive part of the body of a dog, and as such, should not be exposed to the rain.
3. Money Back Guaranteed!!!
Yes, you just read right. If you don’t like this product, you can return it within the first 60 days of purchase and get your money back.
This is something you don’t see every day. It only tells you how much UsefulThingy is sure of its product.
It also boasts of excellent customer service, which we are sure is great news for every potential customer out there.
Terms and conditions apply, though. Check with company for further details on return policy.
This raincoat would have been excellent if it had a hoodie. It’s just like it has everything except that.
This makes us sad because it was great and all, just this one major setback.
You might see this as a huge turning point, and sincerely, we wouldn’t blame you.
When we ask for dog raincoats, we want the total package. Something that would cover our pup from HEAD to tail, and sadly, this dog raincoat just cannot provide that.
Alternative Options To The Usefulthingy Dog Raincoat
More Affordable Option
Blueberry Pet Dog Raincoat
You don’t have to break bank to get yourself a good dog raincoat. If you think the raincoat we reviewed today is too expensive for you, you can check this alternative.
However, this wouldn’t work as well for outdoor activities like the features product will.
So, you would need to weigh your options properly before making a final decision.
Smaller Sizes Alternative
Topsung Puppy Dog Raincoat
If you have an extremely small adult dog or a puppy, then this is one dog raincoat to consider.
It is a puppy coat, and therefore, features way smaller sizes. Also, it has a hoodie, and is like a jumpsuit.
It might be a little difficult to put on, but when on, it covers your pup completely. This includes his chest and abdomen.
More Fashionable Alternative
If you’re a fashionista and you love your pup to look extra cute in his raincoat, then this is one to consider getting.
It features a bright and beautiful yellow outer-layer, and zebra striped inner-layer.
Furthermore, it has fore-sleeves that make your look like he’s wearing a shirt.
The abdomen is fastened by buttons and a zip, and also comes with a hoodie that can be adjusted using drawstrings.

What Do Other People Think About The Usefulthingy Dog Raincoat?
Well, people who have used this product think it’s a good product. The fact that it’s so sturdy makes it great for the outdoors.
Generally, this got a great reception from the market and that’s a good sign.
What Do We Think?
We would’ve given this product a perfect rating if and if only it had a hoodie.
It’s a really good raincoat, and can also double as a sweater by providing warmth.
But we just can’t get over the fact that it doesn’t have a hoodie. With all that said, we would have to say this product is simply good.
