RACING – Dog coat
Heating coat with merino wool lining. Developed for sled dogs in collaboration with experienced mushers; Joar Leifseth Ulsom, Ralph Johannessen, Elisabeth Edland, Per Olav Gausereide, Tore Bergby, Jo Jøldal, and Jean-Philippe Pontier. Sandwich model. The outer layer is windproof and water resistant, made of a light ripstop fabric (equivalent to materials used on some light down jackets), in the middle is thin wool felt made of 100% merino wool, and on the inside is perforated lining. Tightening on the inside by the tail, to ensure a good fit over the back and thighs. Loop for the harness. The coat has pockets on the inside for placement of heating packs over the shoulders and back/hips of dogs that need heat treatment. This makes shoulder-heating t-shirts obsolete. No seams on the front, the seam is on the back. The outer fabric is thin, light, and is similar to what can be found on light down jackets.
Weight: ca. 400 grams.
The Racing coat has a flap with neoprene inside, which protects against frostbite. The flap also protects against crosswind. The neoprene in the flap makes it water repellent.
The Racing coat is also suitable for other dogs/breeds in activity; bird dogs and other working dogs; the Racing is not just for sled dogs. The coat is windproof and water resistant, but not waterproof, so it will get wet in rain. If you do not want the protective flap with neoprene, it is easy to cut off.
Comes in three sizes (Alaskan husky sizes): S, M, and L (measurements of back-length can be found below).
Reflective strip on the back, sides and front – with color code: yellow = S, orange = M, and black = L.
Measurements from the neck to the base of the tail, and the total length of the coat:
