MOD: Cuff Snaps on the Hurtta Body Warmer

There are no affiliate links in this article. I provide links to materials just to help you find what you need.  Our Body Warmers were sent to us by Hurtta America. Need help with fitting? Here’s a post I wrote about that. The Body Warmer is Hurtta’s baselayer coat – a thin knit with a…

Hurtta Eco Rain Blocker Raincoat

Unlike Hurtta’s other sleeved coats (the Body Warmer and Slush Combat Suit), the Rain Blocker comes in only one size per back length, which makes it much easier to choose a size…

Hurtta Chill Stopper

The Chill Stopper is a lightweight softshell with wind and water resistance – the perfect shoulder season layer, in a sleek design that fits into a city environment as easily as a more rugged one.

Fitting the Hurtta Body Warmer

Below is hopefully enough information for you to size your dog for a Hurtta Body Warmer, and probably too much about the 14″ sizes in particular. If it’s more than you need to get the right fit, I’ll be happy!

Mod: Adding Butt Flap Snaps to a Hurtta Coat

While the older-style Hurtta Ultimate Warmer came with snaps to fold back and secure the butt flaps for potty time or when not needed, the newer Torrent and Extreme Warmer coats don’t. Here’s how to add them yourself.

Pawtagonia Sleeveless Dog Sweater

Hurtta Torrent Coat

The Torrent Coat is made like human grade tech clothing – or better. The shell is a smooth, not-too-crinkly breathable and waterproof nylon layer, and it’s fully lined with a thick, soft fine mesh.

Ruffwear Sun Shower

Though Robin’s a perfect XS in his sleeved Ruffwear Climate Changer, the vest styles (like this Sun Shower, and his Swamp Cooler) are too big in the chest. This one is the worst of the two because of the flexible material- no matter how we adjust the belly straps, he periodically catches a foot in the chest panel or steps through to the other side.
