Ah, the Pacific Northwest. So green, so pretty, so RAINY! With an average of around 155 days of rain each year, water and mud is something we deal with a lot. Zoe and Phoenix both tend to be pretty finicky about bad weather and I honestly don't blame them. The girls don't enjoy being wet and honestly, who really likes that wet dog smell, anyways? It rains all winter long and a lot in Spring and Fall. We also happen to live in the Colombia River Gorge so we often deal with freezing wind, too. My dogs don't like the rain, Zoe specifically hates the wind and it's important for them to have quality coats that protect them from the elements.
With Spring on the way and the weather warming up a little, I noticed that the dogs were starting to get too warm running around in their winter coats. So I decided that they needed new raincoats. My dogs have a passion for fashion and our old "off the rack" rubber duck rain coats were just not cutting it, plus they were yellow and ugly. I wanted light, breathable fabric that would also be able to protect them from rain and wind without making them too hot.
The Hurtta Torrent Coat is the answer to everything I was looking for in a Spring/Fall raincoat. This coat was designed for demanding conditions and to protect a dog from the rain and wind while also being lightweight and breathable.
The girls and I really like the Torrent Coat! I think it's an awesome rain coat! The Torrent Coat would be a fabulous winter coat for all of those long haired dogs who get too warm running around in other heavier coats but who need to stay dry. It's an awesome Spring/Fall coat for my dogs with short hair so they can stay dry but not overheat on those days where it's warmer but still raining. I love how light but durable the fabric is and how the dogs were able to run around in the blackberries without it tearing.
The Torrent Coat comes in either Cherry (hot pink) or Raven (black) and is available in Hurtta's full range of sizes. I would definitely recommend checking it out!
