I bought this jacket in red and black years ago and it still looks brand new after all the washing and drying it's been subjected to. My Boxer will not leave the house without it on if its raining. I think it's because it covers him all the way to the tip of his little tail nub and if I flip the collar up it also covers part of his head. Before we bought this jacket he refused to go out if it rained, no matter how bad he had to go which is not healthy. Now he goes out and will even play and run around in the rain as long as he has his jacket on. Due to the price of this jacket I would recommend it to everyone. My dog has gotten more use out of this jacket than the $70. waterproof coat I had made for him and it honestly still looks brand new.
