In 1996 Karen and Paul adopted their first greyhounds, Trixie and Mowgli. Not satisfied with the coats they found, Karen designed and made her own. In 1999 she realized those earlier jackets weren't adequate for the Portland weather, and began purchasing a variety of water-repellant and fleece fabrics for raincoats and fleece coats. Greyt Outdoors was born in 2003 and Karen began making and selling coats.
In 2012 Greyt Outdoors changed hands as Karen handed the mantle of the company to us. After the loss of Chet, our first greyhound, we had a vision in mind of offering great products and designs to the greyhound community in his memory. Thus Greyt Gear by MJ was born, and in 2010 we began making fleeces and coats. Two years later we have found Greyt Outdoors to be a wonderful match to our goals and mission of creating unsurpassed quality greyhound apparel. We are excited about the opportunity to add the Greyt Outdoors products to our lineup and are proud to continue the tradition established by our predecessor.
The Greyt Outdoors coats have been tried and tested on countless greyhounds including our own, and have kept them comfortable and dry. We help promote greyhound adoption through our local groups and a percentage of Greyt Outdoors sales are donated to benefit greyhounds. Coats and fleeces are also donated for auctions and raffles for greyhound groups across the country.
I hope you will be happy with our products as we take care in creating these coats, have fun making them, and are proud of the results. We welcome your comments and offer an exchange or full refund if you are not completely satisfied. Thank you for visiting our website.
