Universal Jacket Extender

UPDATED Version for 2019_2020.

    • The Universal Jacket Extender is a softshell extender that expands the front of your own jacket during pregnancy. No need to buy a maternity jacket or borrow a XXL. Feel good in your own jacket!
    • Includes a Universal Extender (with removable fleece panel) and our patent-pending Universal Adapter.
    • While baby-carrying with a soft-structured front-carrier, wrap or sling, the extender expands your jacket around you and your baby, for close comfort and warmth while outdoors.
    • The Universal Adapter allows you to attach your Extender to MOST jackets. (See Compatibility below for restrictions). The unique design slides over and secures onto most brands or sizes of zip. For different length jackets, you simply need to reposition it in order to get your ideal coverage or fold the top down. The Universal Adapter can also be used on its own during early pregnancy and post-partum where just a few extra inches are needed.
    • Wind, rain and snow resistant, ready for fall, winter and spring.


    • Designed to work with MOST zips. Watch a DETAILED DEMO here.
    • Compatibility: Not suitable for YKK Metaluxe Zips. See photo here.
    • Plastic snaps allow the width of the Extender to be adjusted. The included elastic strip can be snapped anywhere on the Extender for an even better fit.
    • Snap-on fleece panel for an extra layer of warmth (included). Simply remove for milder days.
    • 27" (70cm) long, one-size fits most.
    • Made from a layer of buttery-soft softshell with a micro-fleece lining for comfortable protection against the elements.
    • Long pull-tabs on all zips to make zipping easier.
    • Plastic snaps at the top of the Extender allow for easier folding down and securing in place on shorter jackets and while baby-carrying.
    • Made in Montreal, Canada. Made in Canada


    Your baby’s safety is your responsibility. Always monitor your baby or child to ensure adequate ventilation and warmth. The Universal Jacket Extender is NOT a baby-carrier. Always follow the safety instructions of your baby-carrier.

    Perfect fit!

    I bought this for my moose knuckle parka. The zipper was very thick, and I was initially concerned that the clips for the extender were going to be too too tight, but ended up fitting perfectly! I’m pregnant with twins, so I’m so happy I don’t have to buy another parka for this winter.

    Easy to use!

    It is incredibly easy to use. The zipper quiz works well to tell you what you need. Both the regular zipper in the universal adapter work very well as advertised. Incredibly happy with this purchase!

    Fits perfectly

    Fits really well with my TNA Parker. I'm currently using the extension and gradually will switch to the actual piece. I can't wait to use it next winter with my baby. The quality is also durable. It stays put.

    I like it!

    It has made our getting ready to go outside in the cold fast and easy. The only thing I find it difficult is to get the first teeth in the sliders especially with a baby blocking my sight. Beside that I am happy with my purchase!

    Great investment for versatility

    Very easy to transfer between coats which I like as our Canadian winters have a wide range of temperatures and conditions.
