The Hurtta Summit Parka For Dogs Review

With colder weather fast approaching I wanted to give some information on the Hurtta Summit Parka. If you are like me you don’t want your dog to get too cold while he’s out playing in cold inclimate weather. My dog is strictly an indoor dog so if he needs or wants to be outside for any length of time I want him to stay warm (since he has not been acclimated to colder weather and allowed to grow a thick coat).

A Little About Hurtta BrandHurtta Original Dog Coat Tripp

Hurtta is a manufacturer of durable high quality pet equipment and clothing that originated in Finland so they know how to stay warm in the cold winter months and their professional development team takes into account and researches the individual shapes and sizes of dog breeds to ensure proper functional fit.

Features Of The Hurtta Summit Parka

  • The Hurtta Summit Parka is a revamped version of the classic winter jacket. It is great for active dogs that need a functional well fitting coat to meet the demands of tough use. The great design limits the slip and shift that you get with some dog coats.
  • The Summit Parka offers quality insulation to short-haired dogs and dogs with no undercoat, helping them to maintain their body temperature during those cold weather outings.
  • It also has a waterproof yet breathable coating with high-visibility 3M reflectors allowing your dog to be seen in the dark.
  • It also features an adjustable back length (I love this feature) as well as adjustable belt and collar for a perfect fit. And attachment loops for the back legs help it to stay in place. And offers a reclosable opening to attach a leash to a harness that can be worn underneath (harness is sold separately).
  • This winter jacket has longer sides than most and protects your dog’s major muscle groups, chest and abdomen.
  • It is quick and easy to put on or off and is a great coat for warming up the muscles of active dogs before or after training.

Who Will Benefit From Using The Hurtta Summit Parka

Because the design of this coat is tailored to the active dog you can be assured that this can be used for agility, search and rescue, sled dogs, fly ball, hiking and other highly active activities.

This coat is also perfect for everyday use such as daily walks and playing in the yard or park. Anywhere or anytime that you want to ensure your dog stays warm and dry.

  1. Hi Pam,
    Thanks for this great review! It doesn’t get that cold where we live but my dog definitely is hesitant to get outside when it is colder. Maybe a nice warm coat will change his mind. He needs to exercise and keeping him in just isn’t an option. Thanks!

    1. Thank you for reading my review. If you’re looking for a lighter weight coat without the warmth they also offer a lightweight raincoat, here is the link if you would like to check it out. Hurtta raincoat. They work great just for keeping the muscles warm or acting as a windbreaker. Thanks again for visiting my post, Pam

  2. Nice review Pam. I have five dogs so clothes for them are always on my mind. I usually make coats and sweaters for them myself, but it’s nice to know about this parka. It seems very durable. I’m going to check it out!

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed my review, I have had this parka for almost 5 years now. My dog is an indoor dog so it works great when we are outside for a long period of time, it keeps him toasty warm and dry. Best regard to you and your pets, Pam
