This jacket extender is great for winter walks with my babe with it attached to my winter coat. I look forward to wearing it with my lighter jacket in the spring as well! These jackets are different lengths, but the snaps make the extender customizable to various jacket lengths.
Pros: This jacket extender seems like it’s good quality, and it is definitely warm — the fabric is thick and blocks the wind. Which is great considering I live where winter temps drop down to -30 C and colder... sometimes much colder with the windchill. It also fits my jacket perfectly, which is great. I really appreciated the specific instructions on how to make sure it will fit my jacket zipper.
Cons: My biggest complaint is that I’m at the point in pregnancy where I can barely zip up my jacket normally, but when I add the extender, it adds a lot of bulk. I can’t wear it fully extended because it looks like I’m wearing a tent — which is neither flattering nor functional bc it lets wind blow up it. And the buttons that are supposed to make it more fitted just pop open constantly. Which drives me absolutely nuts!! Every time I bend over or sit down, a bunch of snaps pop open and then I’m fumbling to get them snapped back up.
I’m hoping it will work well once my belly is much bigger. But I’m just not sure what I’ll do once my jacket no longer zips up without it, and the extender is still too big to be fully open... it just doesn’t feel great to feel like I’m wearing a big shapeless sack. I’m not exactly sure how this could be fixed... maybe if the fabric had some stretch to it, and the snaps were replaced by something else that would actually hold it shut when there’s pressure put on them?
BellyFit® Jacket Extender
I'm overall okay with the product but everytime I move, the snaps undo. The jacket isn't the least bit tight with the snaps done up so I'm not sure why they can't stay closed. It works with the snaps open just doesn't look great.
It's a great product, very very useful
