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 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.

    So happy

    The universal attachments are perfect. This is our last baby and I couldn't bring myself to spend money on a pregnancy coat that didn't look like it would survive a Canadian winter. Amazing results.

    Great baby wearing purchase

    Works well with my Canada Goose. Able to get outside a bit longer in cold Saskatchewan

    Great product!

    Works great to keep my little one warm when she’s in the carrier. The zipper conversion system is just short of genius! Worked great with my coat.


    Still in early pregnancy - but it was a great extender for my autumn jacket. waiting for winter to set in to see how it works then. Was very straightforward to attach to my jacket, and the instructions were clear.

    Worth the purchase

    Great fit, very accommodating to belly size in the third trimester. Zipper adapters slip a bit but are not an inconvenience.

    Hi Jamie! Thank you for your review. If you find your adapter moving/sliding at all, the included clips should be able to help with that and prevent any movement. If you needed any help with this, please get in touch :)
