Chester Whippet Coat


Following on from the popularity of our Whip-it-Away whippet rain coats, I wanted a version that wouldn't need to be layered on cooler days.

A coat that is well, also a jumper! We've designed a way to have the great protection from rain of the Carlisle and Cardiff coats, but also covering the chest area in warm fleece, giving warmth and protection on the chest and belly while covering the whole back with a water resistant fabric to keep out rain and wind.

It's really easy to put on and take off, with no need to hold a wiggling whippet to fasten a belt.

The Chester is not only stylish it is super practical as well!


Product Description

Having two whippets to dress before every cold or wet walk I know only too well what is involved.

For some time I have wanted to design a coat that is also a jumper, something that slips over the head like a jumper but gives the coverage over the back like a coat – tah dah! The Chester coat (with fleece) and The Chester Light (with jersey) fit the brief!

The perfect coat for our warmer winters and will take you nicely through Autumn days where there might be a chill in the air, or that dull cold drizzle.

Designed to be worn over a harness and fits over the popular Ruffwear and Perfect Fit ranges.

Easy to get on and off, just like a jumper, no need for fastening a belt. This coat does not pack away into a small bag, but is suitable for cooler days when the weather is less unpredictable. It is my GO TO coat for George and Winnie, I love it! It can be a bit flappy in the rear end of very windy days but I can live with that!

Features include:

  • Hand crafted in our Kent workroom
  • Suitable over a harness
  • Washable shower proof fabric upper
  • Fleece lining, covering the chest
  • No strap to fasten
