New Autumn gear from Ruffwear

Ruffwear, the performance dog gear brand, has launched its latest range for Autumn/Winter 2018 featuring the largest apparel collection to-date, including shell, fleece and quilted styles.


A selection from the range, including early season Autumn apparel lines and bedding, is available from 1st August and detailed below. The remainder of the AW18 range will be available from 1st October. 


The latest products are inspired by the companionship owners share with their four-legged friends and designed to take dogs and owners on adventures together.


The new Wind Sprinter Jacket is ultra-lightweight (90g, size medium) and packs down into its own collar. It is constructed using durable, nylon ripstop fabric that blocks wind with a DWR coating that repels light rain. It features leg loops for secure fit, a leash portal for compatibility with most harnesses and has side release buckles for easy on/off. A reflective trim and light loop for attaching the Ruffwear Beacon safety light give the jacket visibility in low light conditions.

The Stumptown Jacket is designed to offer cosy warmth on cold days with an abrasion and water-resistant exterior shell and recycled polyester insulation. It features a leash portal for harness compatibility, side release buckles for easy on/off, reflective trim for low-light visibility plus an attachment loop for a Ruffwear Beacon™ safety light. It comes in two colourways: Metolius Blue and Larkspur Purple.

The Clear Lake Blanket is a durable, water-resistant quilted blanket designed for life in the outdoors. It is made from quick-drying fabric making it the perfect resting place for four-legged friends on any adventure. It uses recycled polyester insulation that holds in warmth and includes a stuff sack for easy transport. At 110cm * 140cm when flat it provides ample coverage for even the largest of four-legged friends.
