Gear Review: Voyagers K9 Apparel Winter Coat

Gear Review: Voyagers K9 Apparel Winter Coat

Disclaimer: Voyagers K9 Apparel sent me a Winter 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.

In search of a functional, high quality, durable winter coat for your dog? The Voyagers K9 Apparel Winter Coat is hands down my favorite winter coat for dogs.

When we hit the trails in the cold winter months, I know this jacket will not only keep Sitka warm and dry, but it will also keep him clean, won’t restrict his movement, and is made by a brand that I trust.

I genuinely have nothing negative to say about the Voyager K9 Apparel Winter Coat for dogs. The steep price may come as a shock, but a read through my gushing review will show you why it pays to spend more.

About Voyagers K9 Apparel

When Voyagers K9 Apparel founders couldn’t find a dog jacket that fit their Greyhound’s unique body shape properly, so they decided to design their own.

While the company started out making jackets just for Greyhounds, they later expanded their product line to include a variety of popular breeds.

Today, they make a variety of stylish and functional dog coats in different sizes and colors for over 20 different breeds.

Don’t see your breed listed? They’ll make you a custom dog jacket to fit your dog perfectly.

All of the jackets are hand made in Washington State and the team has been making them for nearly 30 years.

Who is the Voyagers K9 Winter Coat for?

The Winter Coat is ideal for dogs who join their humans for winter activities. Because of the design, dogs have full range of motion, while still protecting areas sensitive to cold, like the belly and chest.

The coat adds a layer of warmth and protection from elements in temperatures below 40°, keeping dogs warm and dry in the sleet, snow, wind, and rain.

Whether you live in a wet winter environment or a bitingly cold location, the Winter Coat will ensure that your dog stays comfortable, no matter the weather.

I have three jackets from Voyagers K9 and there’s a reason for it. They are among my favorite winter gear for dogs and they perform exactly as I need them to.

The Voyagers K9 Winter Coat is a well designed jacket for dogs.

The Perfect Winter Coat for Adventure Dogs

The Voyagers K9 Apparel Winter Coat is functional, attractive, and well-constructed.

The hybrid jacket combines soft fleece with a waterproof outer shell to provide both comfort and protection from the elements.

Additional features include:

  • Windproof and waterproof
  • Polartec fleece lining
  • Stain-resistant
  • Adjustable neck gator
  • Reflective piping
  • Machine washable
  • Handmade in the USA

For dogs that get especially cold, the Winter Coat is designed to fit over the Tummy Warmer to provide additional warmth in extreme temperatures.

This is a winter dog jacket that performs exceptionally in every category I could ask for in a piece of outdoor gear.

The Voyagers K9 Winter Coat is Easy to Put on Your Dog

Unlike other dog jackets that require legs to go in sleeves and adjustments in various spots, Voyagers K9 coats are a breeze to put on and take off your dog.

It literally takes seconds.

I just get Sitka’s head through the neck hole and secure the belly strap.

That’s it!

While I do own other winter dog coats that perform well in the elements, I almost always reach for my Voyagers K9 Apparel coats because they are so easy to put on.

The Voyagers K9 Winter Coat is Designed for Mobility

The design of the Winter Coat allows for maximum mobility whether we’re trail running, snow shoeing, hiking, or cross country skiing.

Because there are no restrictive straps or sleeves, dogs can move freely while staying warm.

Custom Gear that Fits

The entire company exists because of the owners’ inability to find a jacket to fit their Greyhounds.

They soon realized that many dog owners struggled to find jackets that fit their own dogs.

Voyagers K9 recognizes that there is no one-size-fits all for dogs.

You’ll find 20 common breeds listed on the site, however, if you have a breed that is not listed, they’ll make you a custom jacket for your dog.

All of the Voyagers K9 jackets I have are custom-designed and fit Sitka absolutely perfectly.

Voyagers K9 Apparel jackets are designed in such a way that the fabric provides optimal coverage based on each individual dog’s size and proportions.

You won’t have to constantly adjust the jacket while you hike because it stays in place.

Made using High Quality Materials

The designer and seamstress who hand makes each and every Voyagers K9 Apparel jacket has over 30 years of experience.

The brand uses high quality materials that are easy to clean, machine washable, stylish, stain-resistant, and made to last.

Reinforced stitching means the jacket will serve for many winters to come.

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.

Know this: You get what you pay for.

When you purchase a Winter Coat from Voyagers K9 Apparel, you get:

  • A perfectly-fitted coat that keeps your dog warm
  • A durable handmade winter dog coat
  • A stylish and functional dog jacket that will not restrict your dog’s movement
  • A jacket that is a breeze to put on your dog

Voyagers K9 Gives back

You know how much I love a company that incorporates giving back as part of their business plan and mission.

Voyagers K9 Apparel donates a percentage of each purchase to a dog adoption agency of the buyer’s choice.

Voyager K9 deletes bad reviews

I wish I could say the same... but the customer service with this company is the worst I've ever seen. They've gone out of their way to delete bad reviews off of their website, google, etc. I'm so disappointed in how poorly their customers are treated for a coat that ended up being $350 CAD.

Oooh boo. This is super disappointing to hear and I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience with them that ended up costing you way more than necessary for a dog coat. Thanks for the heads up.
