The ultimate dog walking jacket

See also

As the actual temperatures dropped below zero today I was really wishing I had the K-Rosco Dog Walking Utility Jacket. Instead I layered up like all good Minnesotans and hoped I had the right combinations and amounts for my foray into the great outdoors.

This jacket is water-proof, seam-sealed winter jacket that converts into a lightweight summer vest – although as hot and humid as we get in Minnesota we probably would use the vest in spring and fall instead.

I love the poop pick-up bag dispenser that is built right into the jacket. The poop bag rolls will fit nicely in there so you can clean up after you dogs – and I know you do that every time!

Additional features to help make your dog walking and hiking easier are reflective piping, treat pocket, belt/leash, hood with a visor, a key coil, water-bottle pocket and lots of additional pockets inside to stash your cell phone and more.

This practical jacket comes in black or red and sizes small to xxl. You can learn more and order here: Let's Go Design | Being Prepared Never Looked So Good
