Disclaimer: Voyagers K9 Apparel sent me this Rain Coat to test and review. I have purchased other jackets from the brand previously because I love the quality and design. I test my products thoroughly and in various conditions and always give my honest thoughts.

I’m not sure how I ever survived in the Pacific Northwest without a rain coat for my dogs. I can tell you that I went through a ton of towels! Fortunately, the Voyagers K9 Apparel Rain Coat keeps my pup dry and creates less mess for me post hike!

Based in Washington, the team behind these rain coats are very familiar with heavy rain and have designed a high-quality, waterproof and windproof rain coat for dogs without compromising their mobility on the trails.

Who is the Voyagers K9 Apparel Rain Coat for?

The Rain Coat is great for anyone who lives in a wet climate and enjoys getting outdoors, no matter the weather.

If you live in the Northwest, like I do, it means that you see rain a good eight months out of the year. It’s unavoidable, but as they say, there’s no bad weather, only bad gear!

Whether you’re just taking your dog out for a quick potty, morning walk, or mountain adventure, the Voyagers K9 Apparel Rain Coat will keep them dry while still allowing mobility.

About Voyagers K9 Apparel

Voyagers K9 Apparel started because the founders couldn’t find a jacket that fit their Greyhounds’ unique body shape properly. So they decided to design and make their own.

Originally, the company made jackets only for Greyhounds, but later expanded to other sight house a requests came in. Today, they make three different styles of coats in different sizes and colors for over 20 different breeds and will design a custom dog jacket to fit any dog perfectly.

You can read my reviews for the Winter Coat and the Tummy Warmer to learn why Voyagers K9 makes my favorite dog jackets.

All of the jackets are handmade in Washington and the team has been making them since 1993.

The Ideal Rain Coat for Adventure Dogs

The Voyagers K9 Rain Coat is waterproof, lightweight, and stylish. Designed for active dogs, the fit allows for full mobility so dogs can run and play as they would without a jacket.

The smart design and features make the Voyager K9 Rain Coat my favorite jacket for wet weather. More than just a water blocker, these coats:

  • Keep dogs dry
  • Offer head to tail coverage
  • Include an integrated hood for additional protection
  • Are machine washable
  • Fitted to the size and breed of your dog
  • Feature reflective piping for increased visibility

Further, the jackets are made with a waterproof and windproof outer shell and lined with a breathable mesh to prevent them from overheating.

The designers also considered that annoying drip, drip, drip sound that may bother some dogs, and the material used muffles the sound while keeping your dog dry.

Easy to Put on Your Dog

One of my favorite features of Voyager K9 jackets is that they are easy peasy to put on your dog. I don’t have to stick my dog’s legs into any sleeves, I simply slip their head through the opening, stretch across their back, and secure beneath the belly.

It takes me less than 10 seconds to outfit my dog for wet weather.

Since the legs are free, dogs can continue to walk and run without restrictive zippers, cords, pulleys, and sleeves that lead to discomfort.

Custom Dog Jackets for Perfect Fit

The entire company began because the owners couldn’t find any dog jackets to fit their Greyhounds, so they get that dogs are not one size fits all.

In addition to offering breed-specific jackets for 22 different breeds, if you have a dog whose breed is not on the list or mixed-breed, you can order a custom jacket that will fit your dog perfectly.

The Rain Coat can be ordered to fit your dog’s exact measurements. You just simply fill out your dog’s measurements in the order form (remember, measure twice for certainty!).

This is what I’ve done for Sitka and all three Voyagers K9 jackets fit him perfectly.

High Quality Materials

The designer and seamstress who hand makes Voyagers K9 Apparel jackets has over 30 years of experience and understands how to make a quality coat suitable for adventure dogs.

Voyagers K9 selects hight quality materials that are easy to clean, machine washable, stylish, and durable. Reinforced stitching means the jacket will last for years to come.

Sitka runs through trees, rolls in dirt and rocks, and plays with dogs and I’ve never experienced any damage on his jackets.

The Rain Coat is designed so that the fabric provides optimal coverage based the dog’s unique size and proportions. Once the jacket is Velcroed in place, it stays there. You won’t have to stop and adjust mid-hike.

Many Color Options

Customers can choose from nine different colors, spanning the color of the rainbow. Most dog jackets only come in a handful of colors, so having a pick from so many different shades really sets Voyagers K9 apart from other brands.

You Get What You Pay For

Depending on the size and shape of your dog, and whether you decide to order a custom jacket, the price may seem a bit steep, especially compared to competitors.

But, if you know me, you know that I love to buy high quality gear and use it for many, many years. I am willing to pay a high price for that and I encourage my audience to do the same.

It’s better for both the environment and your wallet over the long term.

You get what you pay for.

When you decide to buy a Rain Coat from Voyagers K9 Apparel, you get a custom fit coat handmade using high-quality materials that will last for years.

Plus, Voyagers K9 donates a percentage of each sale to a dog adoption agency of the buyer’s choice. You know how much I love to support a company that makes quality products and gives back to the community.
