The softshell fleeces are water-repellent outside with a soft fleece inside. The surface of the fabrics is treated to shed rain and snow, and they are durable and breathable. They have stretch for freedom of movement, offering warmth without weight.
All softshell coats extend about 6" for extra coverage at the rear. They have contour seaming and slip over the head and fasten with a velcro strip underneath.
An optional hood is available with an opening at the top for a leash. The hood is attached to the coat and is not removable. The hood can be worn scrunched as a turtleneck, or pulled up over the ears and secured with the cordlock for more protection from the weather.
The hood is made of a black wind blocking fleece. All the coats are bound with microfleece fabrics around the outer edge. The binding is often black, brown or a color which coordinates with the outside of the coat.
Notice the distinctive back of the coat, which has an opening for the tail. The top stitching is a design feature which adds an elegant touch and the reflective piping adds safety to your hound's coat.
