With 27 years of experience, we have many reports of our dog coats lasting 16 years and more.
HOW WE MAKE OUR COATS
Oilskin is simply put: cotton fabric made waterproof using a mixture of wax and oil.
Don't be fooled though, Oilskin can come in various grades of fabric.
We choose Premium black Oilskin with warm Sherpa fleece lining or a cooler option of a Cotton lining.
Our manufacturing process involves internal and external stitching.
Dark bronze studs in the neck and velcro adjustment on the stomach strap allow for plenty of adjustment. The velcro has been doubled on the stomached strap for extra strength and longevity.
This design comes with a stylish collar that matches your lining choice that can be tuned up to cover the neck during a downpour.

With out a doubt the best dog coat ever!
Over the last 13 years my Beautiful Tripod Kelpie "Gypsie" and I have been through a myriad of dog coats. Gyp has taken it as a personal challenge to either escape from or chew every coat ever owned. Keeping a dog coat on a Tripod (missing front leg, joint taken out so no stump) was challenging. However almost a year ago your wonderful Waterproof Dog Coat with Collar and Sherpa lining arrived. Beautifully made and more importantly, Gyp has never chewed it or taken it off. The fit is excellent, she's a nuggety but big chested dog with a small neck and the double neck clips on the smallest setting fit her perfectly. The adjustable but comfortable overlapping velcro belly strap is great. It's a credit to you to have such a well thought out design that is comfortable enough that the dog is not tempted to chew or try to discard it.
I wanted to wait to write the review to test the durability, but I've now had the coat for nearly a year with no issues.
Congratulations on a fantastic product. Have just ordered another one for my other Kelpie Kahlua.
Thanks for making this great product available.
We purchased the 50cm fit for our Kelpie and it was perfect, very cozy and warm which will suit our winter climate in Oberon. Very happy with the quality and the look of the jacket. Even came with a little bag of treats that she dug into straight away!
Great dog coat keep our dog warm when we went camping.
The title says it all. This coat is the best quality and design dog coat I have ever seen (or purchased).
I have searched high and low and suffered many disappointments along the way.
My little dog is an escape artist and hates being constricted. Any strap across her chest usually results in her somehow managing to get either one or both front feet up and over said strap. Even high neck sock type jumpers are no challenge to her. Escape proof harnesses lose their meaning within seconds.
She absolutely LOVES this coat. She will happily walk and run with this coat on, seeming to be very proud to do so.
I even put her harness over the top of the coat, which made things quite tight (in respect of the harness). This is the same harness I had constant trouble getting her to stay in.
The results were spectacular. Despite the firmness (which still presented no real barrier to her, should she so choose) she remained completely comfortable. The grin on her face as she galloped around the park was so big I tried to capture it in a pic.
I have spent literally hundreds and hundreds of dollars on various harnesses, coats and jumpers and I can honestly say that this coat beats the pants off of everything else.
I am talking about some of the top brand dog products, when I say that, too.
The quality of materials is second to none. The attention to detail, shows finesse and a high degree of care. The design is simple and elegant. Every aspect of the design is thought through carefully, with the comfort of the dog and durability in mind.
This is an item that will easily outlast any dogs lifetime (given reasonable treatment).
My first reaction upon opening the package, was "Wow!. Now THAT'S a coat!". It was far better than the pics in the ad showed.
The strength and durability showed, the moment it was in my hand. The materials were thicker than I expected, but somehow retained a softness some of the thinner coats lacked.
It was like the difference between a cheap, thin acrylic jumper and a thick, pure wool jumper.
Although the lining is not genuine lambs wool (which would make costs prohibitive, I would expect) it is soft and comfortable and does the job of keeping the dog warm in cooler weather, admirably.
My dog has never been happier (with a coat) and neither have I.
I would highly recommend doing yourself and your pet a huge favour and don't waste your time (or money) on anything else.
Initially, I had accidentally ordered a size just a fraction too small, but the customer service was exceptional and the problem was rectified quickly and without any fuss. I got to speak to the lady who makes these herself. She sent me her mobile number and was an absolute pleasre to deal with, offering expert advice and assistance.
On a personal level (I hope this doesn't embarrass her, and I am a happily taken man) she appeared to be a beautiful person as well. If I could choose to help support a small business, I believe this one deserves it. I will be recommending these products to all of my family and friends and cannot speak highly enough of the products and service.
The price may seem to be a little higher than some others, but the product stands well above its' price, in quality.
Anyone who purchases one of these, will never regret it. And as my dad used to say, "After a while (in this case, instantly) you forget what you paid and begin to just enjoy the product". That joy will last for many years to come, too. Every time I pick it up, we both grin.
Perhaps I have gone on a bit much, but this is a product (and a customer service experience) that genuinely desrerves it.
I hope that helps save you some of the trouble I have been through, before finally finding this coat. Regards, Stephen Ferguson..
Waw, what a review! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to give such a glowing review! We are so pleased you and your best mate are so pleased with your purchase.
Great Aussie made product, fits well with plenty of length to cover our old Kelpies hips, looks smart probably should have pimped it out with a pocket in hindsight
