If there’s one thing you can guarantee everyday, is that the dog has to go out! It doesn’t matter if it’s cool crisp and sunny or a wet and windy muddy day, you’ve got a dog jumping at the door telling you to hurry and take them for their daily run. And at this time of year, more often than not that also involves you getting wet! So a good quality waterproof jacket is a must-have item and the Berghaus Woman’s Bowfell Jacket does just the trick.
Lucky for peep, we were able to road test a Goretex jacket by Berghaus which is an excellent quality product perfect for the elements of winter walks. Our jacket was a lovely vibrant pink colour with purple details on the side, perfect to brighten up your walk on those grey cold days.
Even though this cool little jacket was for my peep, it was up to me to get her out there and test it to see if she stayed nice, warm and dry. I took my peep to Wimbledon Commons, which at this time of year is muddy and wet, with trails in wooded areas and open spaces for darting beagles. And the last few days have been wet and windy, so a perfect condition to see how the jacket held up.
What my peep liked about her new dog walking jacket…
The generous fit left plenty of room for her thick sweater, and I have to admit, I loved the colour on her, very stylish if I do say so myself. Besides that, her jacket also had:
- Three pockets, perfect for her mobile, keys, treats and poo bags. Sneakily she kept the treats in the inside zip pocket.
- A duel draw cord at the hem, that she could adjust to keep her snug
- Gore-Tex that made the jacket waterproof and wind proof
- A removable zip-off hood and a stylish high collar
- Light and airy
The little visor on the hood was perfect to keeping the rain off my face.
Now if you have an active dog like me, this jacket will not only keep you dry and warm, it just works really well on the trails, in the park, and stylish enough for running around town. Although there may be cheaper alternatives on the market it would be very hard to match this item in terms of quality and value.
