A few months ago, we packed up all our belongings and moved to the rainy* (and eternally green) Pacific Northwest. Since I tend to have a “be prepared” attitude about life, we quickly stocked up on rain gear in preparation for the wet and drizzly winter to come. This, of course, included waterproof attire for Wrigley and Smash — I’m pretty sure they would refuse to leave the house if our walks meant getting drenched with rain! Fortunately, the good folks at FouFou Dog offered to let us try out their new Fou-Ski Parka, which just so happens to be waterproof (and super stylish). Check out our review below!
*Although, to be honest, it hasn’t been all that rainy (yet) so I’m not sure what all the fuss is about! We’ll see if I still feel that way come February and March…
First things first: this parka is super adorable. I mean, it’s a little puffer coat for dogs! The squee factor is off the charts. More importantly, though, it has a completely water-resistant outer shell (which also happens to be reversible and available in 3 color combos), so it’s perfect for rainy and/or snowy walks. Of course, even if you live in a dry (but cold) climate this puffer vest will keep your dog super warm.
If you happen to be walking little Fido after the sun has gone down, the Fou-Ski Parka has highly-reflective safety trim and piping on both sides, so they’ll be visible no matter which color they happen to be sporting at the time. This jacket also has drawstring toggles for a super-duper custom fit. Speaking of fit, this parka comes in seven sizes ranging from X-Small to triple-XL (for reference, Smash and Wrigley wear an XL), so it will fit most dog breeds.
So what was our experience with the Fou-Ski Parka? Well, Wrigley and Smash have both taken turns wearing it out and about during some drizzly Portland weather — and have returned as dry as when we left! The water just beads up on the surface, keeping them dry while making it easy to brush off before we go back inside. (The Fou-Ski Parka is also a breeze to put on and take off, so you can also just take it off at the front door and shake the water off before you go inside. Boom! Easy.) All in all, the Fou-Ski Parka is a well-made, stylish, and highly functional waterproof coat for dogs of all sizes — and it gets a big seal of approval from us!
