Take a look at www.vizslatea.com. Gorgeous rain jackets and sweaters. It took some time to ship (apx a month) but I couldn’t be happier with the quality and fit. You send measurements and they tailor it perfectly. Small company. I promise you’ll love the quality.

At work this morning and first day for jackets this season for our two V's. Milo our 2-yr old male and Chloe our new addition, back in July, to the family at 6-months. 45-degrees here in NY, got to keep them warm...lol!

The only ones working for us are the ones which close with snap or zip. the velcro (even the toughest ones, several of them etc.) are coming flying off when they start running off leash.
we have different versions depending on whether requirements, the one i discovered last year for Bende for conditions like around 40 to 50 F i have just reordered in a different color for Miksa too. Very reasonably priced for the quality and adjustability.

You might like the vests I make for Vizslas. I'm a small cottage industry in New Hampshire, so 100% made in America.
The vest is a cordura shell (back pack fabric) w/ a polarfleece lining - an adjustable clip and a built in turtle neck.

This is my exact experience. I have some decent ones from the pet store for when the dogs ride in the back of the jeep with the top off. I'm in the foothills and it gets cold on the way home from our after work walks. The pet store ones have openings for the front legs. So I have to lay it on the ground and pick both paws up and drop them in the openings, then grab the jacket real fast and lift it up before he steps out. And the other problem I find is that even though the pet store ones fit the length, they are way too tight around the chest. But these are fine for the half to one hour drives home.

The main thing I'm looking for, though is something that is water proof and rugged enough for back country skiing. The main problems with all the jackets I've tried so far are:
1. the chest area is always too tight which causes velcro to come undone, especially when wet or frozen. And if its a zipper one, it will eventually pull the stitching out of the zipper.
2. the material is too flimsy and catches on stuff. That is bad for the puffy style jackets because the outer shell opens up and the stuffing comes out. And it's rather scary to think that he could get hung up on a manzanita branch somewhere I cannot see him.
3. once they get wet from slogging through the snow they are useless.
4. here in the sierras we get snow, but the temps are not that cold. And what I find is that the hunting ones are too warm and thick. If they are too warm, he doesn't want to wear it. If they are too thick and stiff, they rub sores into his underarms. And the hunting ones are just way to complex to put on. And I usually end up with a V running around the trail head with the vest around his neck and the rest of it dragging on the ground. He's slippery sucker! ;-)
