It can no longer be denied, winter has arrived in Germany. As a dog owner, you get the seasons live and in color every day. Because the dog animal wants to go outside, whether it is cold or windy, muddy weather or black ice. But as the old saying goes: there is no bad weather, only bad clothes. Well, we can’t quite subscribe to that, because honestly, when you’re wading ankle-deep through snow slush, a cold, wet drizzle is falling from above, and your dog is like a mud monster, even the best clothes aren’t really comforting anymore. However, it is of course pleasant when mud and sleet does not immediately penetrate the clothing.
As a dog owner, you also always have lots of little things with you: leash, treats, balls, poop bags, cell phone, keys, gloves, etc. Annoying when a winter jacket then has only two normal side pockets.
The brand “Good Boy” has taken care of exactly this problem. It produces special outdoor clothing for dog owners. With friendly support of “Good Boy” we have tested the jacket Maribo. This and other items are available at www.goodboy.de.
The model Good Boy Maribo
The women’s jacket Maribo is new in the fall 2016 assortment of Good Boy. It is the successor of the popular jacket Monty. The Maribo is a winter long jacket. It is available in sizes 34 – 50 and in the colors aquamarine, mocha and granite. The product description promises a water resistance of 10,000 MM. The price is 149.95 euros to 159.95 euros (depending on size).
So the dog whistle is always at hand: In its own pocket, attached to the carabiner.
A practical two-way zipper makes it possible to open both from below and from above.
Also on the inside are pocket available.
One of two treat pockets. This is easy to attach to the snap hook. Due to coated inner material can also be transported here moist treats well.
The second treat bag can be attached in the jacket pocket with the help of Velcro.
Cuffs on the sleeves keep wind and cold out.
Reflective stripes on the sleeve provide good visibility even at dusk and dark.
The phone is quickly at hand when it is stowed in the unbuttonable chest pocket.
A full-length pocket on the back serves as storage for Frisbee and Co.
The hood is fastened with buttons and a zipper and can thus also be removed.
The hood can be folded out for protection from rain and snow. Very practical for spectacle wearers!
Through a cord, the waist size can be regulated.
Our only criticism: In several places, thread ends hang out. In a jacket of this price range, we would like to see a little more careful workmanship in such details.
Good Boy makes well thought out clothing for dog owners. You can tell that this jacket was designed by someone who is out and about with their dog on a daily basis. Surely not every dog owner needs every feature, but some can be misused or simply not used. The jacket keeps really nice and warm and is actually water and dirt repellent in normal everyday life. Light traces of dirt can simply be wiped off with a damp cloth. The aquamarine color shown here is nice and bold and brings some color to a dreary November day. As already shown, our only criticism is that thread ends hang out in several places, but this can be quickly removed by yourself with a small pair of scissors. We give a clear buy recommendation for the jacket Maribo from GoodBoy.
