Chester Light Whip-it-Away Mac


Want a lightweight rain coat for your whippet that can easily be put on like a jumper? A coat that will pack away into a small bag when not on your dog? The Chester Light is the coat for you!

Is it a coat or a pullover? Well, it is both!  A lightweight tee-shirt underneath and a coat on the top!

Simple to get on and off, and gives warmth and protection on the chest and belly while covering the whole back with a water resistant fabric to keep out light rain and wind. Easy to carry, it folds neatly away into its own carry bag with clip.

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

The Chester Light 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, The Chester Light is the Spring/Summer version of it's predecessor The Chester coat which has fleece covering the chest and belly. But here, we are offering a lighter weight version, made with tee-shirt fabric underneath. Being lightweight, it has the added advantage of being able to fold neatly away into its own bag, so it can be added to our range of Whip-it-Away Macs.

We all know that the weather is getting more unpredictable. There will always be inclement Spring and Autumn days when it is wet, damp and just not cold enough for a thick rain coat for your whippet.

The Chester Light is easy to get on and off, just like a jumper, no need for fastening a belt. It also is designed to be worn over a harness and fits over the popular Ruffwear and Perfect Fit ranges.

Features include:

  • Hand crafted in our Kent workroom
  • Suitable for a harness
  • Washable shower proof fabric upper
  • Tee Shirt lining, covering the chest
  • No strap to fasten
  • Easy to put on and take off
  • Available in 6 lovely colours
  • Available in 3 whippet sizes
  • Folds neatly away into its own handy bag with clip.

Offered in our three whippet sizes; small, medium and large and in Sunny Yellow, Olive Green, Navy, Dove Grey and, new for 2022, Dark Brick and Taupe.

If you are looking for other portable coats that you can tuck into a bag or clip onto a belt, take a look at our range of Whip-it-Away Macs. They fold away into their own pouch for those changeable weather days.  Available in three styles, this Chester Light, the Cardiff or the Carlisle with a harness-hole.
