Polartec fabric is often used by top of the line winter clothing manufacturers to make jackets, pants, and gloves. Outdoor wear that has skied Aspen and traversed the mountains of Austria.

Bosa Nova color coat.This extreme condition, soft-shell, 4-way stretch fabric is highly wind resistant, providing 98-percent wind blockage while allowing 2-percent circulation.

The breath-ability of the fabric out performs 100 percent wind block materials and Alpenhitze™ custom dog coats will not allow your dog to overheat.

The non-rustling, soft, water repellent outer shell of our custom dog coats is a tightly woven nylon that resists abrasion, snags, and other outdoor hazards.

A "sandwiched" membrane allows moisture to escape, while the polyester velour liner traps air against your dogs body, providing a high warmth-to-weight ratio.
