About the Fabrics

Our dog coats and sweaters are made from technical fabrics. These fabrics are engineered to provide specific protections from the elements. Each one has a different job.  Some functions are: retention of warmth, repelling wind and water, the release of unwanted moisture. They’re amazingly lightweight technical fabrics.  Each one has a different job.

Power Shield is a top-of-the-line softshell. It has an abrasion-resistant exterior.  It provides superior protection from water and wind. Power Shield is extremely efficient in regulating body temperature during varying levels of activity. It’s all about stable core temperature. This is the fabric of choice for a winter dog coat for an active dog in harsh winter conditions.

WindPro is much like Power Shield but without the heat regulating membrane. This is a very sophisticated fleecy fabric that is unusually warm and dry. Fabulously functional.

PolarTec Fleece is a wonderfully warm fabric for cold weather. It’s available in different weights and can be worn alone or combined with an exterior layer to create a warmer garment. We use Polartec 300 in our Boulder Coat and Boulder Sweater.  Polartec 300 is often called the best insulating fleece made. Combined with a ripstop exterior it becomes a lightweight, durable, warm and water-resistant winter coat.

Polartec 100 is feather-light, soft, warm and comfy. The post-op Smart Sweater is made from this lovely, yielding fabric. It’s meant to be worn indoors.

Ripstop is a polyester fabric that is super light. It’s durable, run-resistant and makes a great outer layer for any garment. Our fabrics are made from recycled materials when available.

All of our fleeces are non-pill and durable. They feel delicious and will comfort your dog in a variety of conditions.
