Keep Your Dog Warm this Winter with a Summit Parka from Hurtta! Review

Hurtta Summit Parka

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a fantastic day! Today I have an exciting new review on some beautiful coats from Hurtta. The brand new Summit Parka is the new and improved version of Hurtta's best selling winter coat!

In Oregon, when it rains it pours. In winter, if it's not raining then it's cold and windy. Sometimes the girls' coats are still wet from our first outing by the time they need to go outside again! We can't do laundry every single day because Zoe is afraid of the washer and dryer. My dogs absolutely hate the cold so having extra coats is very helpful.  I've heard so many wonderful things about Hurtta's coats, I was definitely thrilled when they asked me to review the Summit Parka!

Hurtta Summit Parka

The Summit Parka is a great coat! It's designed to keep your dog warm by complementing the thermal insulation capacity of short-haired dogs and dogs with no undercoat, preventing them from freezing in cold weather. The coat is also great for longer haired dogs as well, especially if you live in a cold climate. Wearing a coat has added benefits of keeping a dog fairly clean! When the girls played in the mud, I only had to hose off their legs and belly versus having to do a whole bath, which saved me a lot of time.

This coat has the same great qualities as Hurtta's old winter coat but with new features: a neck cover for added warmth and protection, new design of the front leg holes for added protection, re-closeable opening on the back to feed a leash through to a harness (on sizes 12"-35"). The two smallest sizes has an integrated harness (on sizes 8" and 10"). Another amazing feature on this coat is the adjustable back length. There are drawstrings that help you to shorten the coat to the perfect length to fit your dog, even if your dog is in between sizes, as my dogs generally are. The coat comes in two colors: Raven or Cherry. 

Phoenix shows the opening for the leash and the adjustable back length.

Being able to easily access their harnesses is a major plus for us!

The coats are made with Houndtex laminated outdoor fabrics. That means that the jackets are smoother, softer and quieter than many other jackets. This really improves the comfort of the jackets and is helpful for dogs who are not used to wearing clothing. The inside of the coat is a soft fleece lining and between the fleece and Hountex outer shell there is a thick insulating layer. These coats are definitely designed to keep your pooch warm on cold winter walks!

The Summit Parkas are dirt resistant and waterproof. The materials used in the Hurtta Outdoors collection were developed for very demanding conditions and heavy wear. My dogs like to be really active, so these coats are perfect for them. The coats are breathable and light. The dogs had full range of motion while wearing them. The dogs were able to run, play and jump like normal, as if they were not wearing anything.

Zoe plays on the freezing beach in her Summit Parka

The Summit Parkas are easy to put on and take off. You just need to slip it over your dogs head, bring the chest flap between the front legs and snap it closed on the back with the plastic buckle. With previous coats that have a chest flap (not from Hurtta), we've had issues with the dogs being rubbed in the armpits. I was really pleased with the Hurtta Summit Parkas, the fabric is so soft! After running 8 miles (two different outings) the coats did not rub their legs and they did not have any chaffing or irritation in their sensitive armpits!

Zoe shows the elastic hind leg straps.

The coats feature elastic hind leg straps to ensure the coat stays in place. The elastic hind leg straps were the only issue we encountered with the coats, my dogs are girls and the elastic sits right in their private areas. They didn't pee on them, though but Zoe did show signs of being a little uncomfortable wearing them. Depending on if she gets used to them or not, we might not use the elastic straps anymore for this reason. The coats seem to sit just fine without them being used, they didn't blow up in the wind, so it's not really that big of a deal for us. If they were boys, it probably wouldn't be an issue at all.

Phoenix shows off the reflective material!

The coats feature 3M reflectors for added safety on night or early morning walks. Even the drawstrings glow! Being visible is so important when you're walking around in the dark. I love the added safety this provides us with since we go on a lot of late night walks.


We tested these coats on one of the coldest days of the year, so far. It was 35f degrees with a windchill of around 32f. The girls were nice and toasty warm. They even decided to play a little in the river and if these dogs are cold they will not touch the water.


The coats also held up to the girls running and playing in the forest. Even though the coats are made from durable materials, they are not made from rip-stop nylon. I made sure to keep them out of the blackberry bushes while wearing them. (I've been trying to keep them out of the bushes, anyways, because they keep cutting themselves and coming out with injuries.) Blackberry bushes have killed a previous coat that was made from ripstop nylon so I am extra careful now. These coats are made with lightweight materials, they are durable but not indestructible.

I would also like to note that the bungie cord in the neckline was not designed for a leash to be hooked up to it. This bungie was made to cinch the neck down so the wind can't get in and will not hold up to a dog pulling. The best place for you to hook your leash is to a well fitting harness, through the recloseable snaps on the jacket or to your dog's collar. (I don't recommend walking dogs with leashes attached to collars. You can go here to find out why.)

I love how visible the dogs are out in the field, especially since it's hunting season!

The coats are machine washable on a gentle cycle, I would recommend using a lingerie bag. The Summit Parkas should be air dried. I've put the coats through one wash cycle prior to this review and they came through just fine.


My dogs do not like running around in the cold at all! The Hurtta Summit Parkas have made them very happy. Instead of dragging me back to the car, they were eager to run around the park and play like normal, even though it was freezing. The Summit Parkas also kept them dry in all the wet weather we've been having! The coats are high quality and stylish. They are well made and we really like them! I think it's also great that they added so many features that make the coats more customizable so that they fit the dogs better!  

I would recommend checking out the Hurtta Summit Parka

You can find retailers in North America by going here: Hurtta247 Stockists.

I would also highly recommend checking Hurtta out on Facebook and liking their page. They often look for product testers and run their own giveaways. The best way of finding out all the Hurtta news is by liking their page.

  1. Bentley needs a Hurtta coat. He is difficult to size and that would wrap around and keep his low-riding belly warm. Those short Basset legs don't give him much distance. ☺

  6. Coco would love the same summit parka that Zoe and Phoenix are wearing! They look gorgeous in it and she loves to wear pink!

  19. Love the shots Lauren!

    Luna needs the jacket because last time I took her winter fishing she froze and started trembling and shaking (-15 wind chill), so I had to wrap her in 3 blankets before she was warm enough. Planning on going for a fishing trip this January with her and I'm looking to buy a warm jacket. Plus we go winter hiking in the mountains and she doesn't have a thick coat quite like Mookie the Retriever.
    And Hurtta is our favourite goto dog gear and no one sells it in my area :(

    1. Yeah, the elastic sort of bothered Zoe, too. I've been testing the coats without using the elastic and they don't blow up and they stay on just fine without them. I'm sure your pups would be fine without the elastic, too. :D

Eventually you will learn that your coat = something tasty and fantastic and you will love your coat! :D When we first got Phoenix, we couldn't touch her and it was freezing out. We did that and she loves all of her clothes now and sticks her head right in. :D

  22. I have two pups. Lady Girl is my rescue pup. She is border collie and black lab. She loves the cold weather, but this coat might come in handy if we have snow. My other pup is a 10 wk old Pekapoo. She is small and a coat would probably be needed this winter.

    My favorite product is the outback boots. The little girl needs something to protect her little paws.

  36. We're always on the lookout for a good dog jacket! As a born and bred Canadian, I definitely make sure that I always have a warm one, and though Baby is a Hungarian rescue, she's a short coated Boxer mix and can always use the extra warmth. (Though she thinks I'm being silly, as she's a tough young dog and will play regardless of the weather-- I like knowing she's warm!)

    All our current coats are hand-me-downs, though, and it'd be nice to win such a pretty coat! (And have it fit everywhere, for once!)

    1. Oh wow! That's neat you rescued your dog from Hungary! I've been going back and forth about getting a podenco from Spain. Maybe some day when we have our own house! :D

      I totally feel you on the hand-me-downs! All of Phoenix's previous winter things were extras I had from Zoe. She's a bit smaller so they don't always fit her. Having a coat that fits is so helpful, especially when they are running. Thanks so much for stopping by! Good luck! :D

  63. Phoenix looks a lot like my rescue Princess. It gets pretty cold in the middle of winter and she freezes with her short coat so I think she would appreciate a doggy coat.

  64. My Border Collie Lux needs a winter coat! We live in Saskatchewan, Canada and our winters get really really cold! Lux doesn't have much undercoat, so she often gets cold on our winter adventures. Because she is long and thin, I have yet to find a dog jacket to fit her well and keep her warm enough. I love how the Hurtta jacket is adjustable to get a perfect fit! Lux is also an active flyball and agility dog, so she needs to keep her muscles warm during practice, to prevent injuries. I would love to find a jacket that she could wear during our winter barn agility practices that would keep her nice and toasty, without having to worry about her muscles getting too cold! I love Hurtta products and would be so thrilled to win a Summit parka!

    1. I bet Lux is super cute! I love border collies! :D We have had similar issues with my girls on finding coats that fit them. Zoe is long and thin as well! I've found that these Summit Parkas fit them both really well. I bet the Summit Parka would work for Lux, too! Thank you for stopping by and good luck! :D

  66. I'd love one for my dog, Callie. She is getting older now and doesn't seem to be able to handle the cold as much on our walks.

    1. I bet a Summit Parka would be great for Callie since older pups have a harder time regulating their temperature! Thank you for stopping by and good luck! :)

  73. Sorry for the second comment... LOL! I would love to have one of these for my huskies. Lexus tends to get colder than the other two in the winter, as her fur is not as thick as the others. I know she would love this!

  82. We have a rescue miniature daschund from LA. Unfortunately, the cold and snow in Calgary are too much for her. She would benefit from a warmer winter coat. But I do think the life jacket would be great for her for when we take her camping.

  89. Because Chester and Gretel are so small, they definitely need winter jackets. We've had a lot of issues with chafing too - both jackets and harnesses - because a Doxie's legs are basically right up against their chest (no gap). I am happy to hear there was no chafing with this jacket.

    1. I bet Chester and Gretel would both look so cute in a Summit Parka! Especially since you like to go hiking! I have had the same chaffing problem with previous coats that had a chest flap so I definitely made sure to check for it with the Parkas. I was so happy when they didn't cause it. They are so soft and the dogs seemed to be very comfortable in them! They ran for over 2 hours at Thousand Acres in them and didn't have any trouble. We've also been going on quite a few rainy walks and they've been great! I really like them! Thank you so much for stopping by and good luck! :D

  90. My Winnie needs one of these parka's, not sure how he feels about pink but I'm okay with it. Win has diabetes, is getting older and is quite low to the ground, we live in the Ontario snow belt so his poor belly takes a beating in winter months. We are trying to take the best possible care that we can and this would certainly help. Thanks.
