Choosing your Non-stop Dogwear Jacket

Choosing your Non-stop Dogwear Jacket

Our dogs are always ready to tackle the great outdoors, no matter the weather. That's why choosing the right dog coat is essential.

Non-stop offer a sizable range of dog coats, and we know it can be a little difficult to narrow the selection down and choose one.

Read on for product breakdowns and advice from our team!

Where do I Start?

Finding the right coat comes down to many factors. This includes your dog's breed, history, health, age & background. 

For example, rescue dogs from warmer climates struggle in British weather, and often benefit from a warming coat. Dogs with shorter fur & elderly dogs will also benefit from some warming.

Alternatively, you may need a dog coat for your own convenience, such as helping to keep the towel-drying to a minimum. A dog with a medium to thick coat can overheat in a warming coat, and will only require a thin, waterproof layer to keep the rain at bay. 

Finally, you can choose reflective covers & vests for dogs who are walked during the evening, keeping your dog as safe as possible.

The key is to know your dog.

Jackets for Weather Conditions

Now that you know your dog's needs from the coat, let's take a look at them!

Fjord Raincoat

The Fjord is the ultimate raincoat. This windproof & waterproof shell holds the honour of the highest waterproof rating out of our entire range of dog coats, at 15.000mm.

This coat is designed to fit virtually all breeds of dog well, with cinch points across the coat for an optimum fit. The large collar shields your dog's neck from rain, and with a high coverage, this coat is almost like an umbrella!

For any water that does manage to get into the coat, it features drainage holes at the chest for water to leak back out.

Despite being high coverage, the coat is designed for full freedom of movement. When fitted correctly, your dog will be able to run as if they weren't wearing a coat!

Key Information

+ Best used as a waterproof coat
+ Waterproof (15.000mm) & Windproof
+ Highly adjustable
+ High coverage, with a high collar
+ Harness portal for leash access
+ Reflective detailing

 

Glacier Warming Coat 2.0

The Glacier 2.0 is a highly functional warming coat, while still being lightweight and easy-to-wear.

Much like the Fjord, this coat features drainage holes at the chest. The shell is windproof & water-resistant, but the Fjord remains the superior choice in heavy rain.

The Glacier 2.0 shines best as a warming coat, with insulating PrimaLoft Black Insulation Eco, which is often used for humanwear. This insulation offers plenty of warmth, while still being lightweight enough for full range of movement.

The Glacier 2.0 is highly adjustable, with cinch points across the coat. 

Key Information

+ Great as a lightweight warming coat
+ Water-resistant (10.000mm) & Windproof
+ Highly adjustable
+ High coverage
+ Harness portal for leash access
+ Reflective detailing

 

Glacier Wool 2.0

The Glacier Wool 2.0 is much like the Glacier 2.0, but with an added feature - wool.

The Glacier Wool 2.0 shell is water-resistant & windproof, while the midlayer uses the same PrimaLoft Eco Insulation as it's sister product.

The lining of the coat is what separates it from the Glacier 2.0, being lined with Ulvang wool. Wool is a popular fibre in Norway, the home of Non-stop Dogwear, as it's breathable, sustainable, lasts longer than most man-made materials and retains its warming properties even when wet.

Key Information

+ A more warming alternative to the Glacier 2.0
+ Water-resistant (10.000mm) & Windproof
+ Highly adjustable
+ High coverage
+ Harness portal for leash access
+ Reflective detailing
