Universal Jacket Extender

      20_21 Model

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • What’s included:
    • Universal Extender (with removable fleece panel)
    • Universal Adapter (patented).
  • The Universal Adapter allows you to attach your Extender to MOST jackets. (See Warning below for restrictions). The unique design slides over and secures onto most brands / sizes of zip allowing you to switch between jackets with ease. For different length jackets, you simply need to reposition it in order to get your ideal coverage or fold the top down on shorter jackets. 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.


  • Warning: Not suitable for Metaluxe zips. See photo here.
  • Designed to work with MOST zips, brands and types of jackets (rain, down, parka, long and short jackets). Watch a DETAILED DEMO here.
  • Made from 3-layer softshell with a micro-fleece lining (98% polyester, 2% Spandex). Includes interior membrane (waterproof / breathable) and outer durable water-repellency coating (DWR).
  • Long pull-tabs and high quality zips make zipping easier.
  • Plastic snaps and elastic strip to control the width for a better fit. Snaps also help with shortening the top on short jackets and while baby-carrying.
  • Snap-on heavy fleece panel for an extra layer of warmth (included). Simply remove for milder days.
  • Universal Adapter includes stop-system to make sure it stays in place on your zip and prevent any sliding.
  • 27" (70cm) long, one-size fits most. 12" (30cm) wide at it's widest and tapering down to 7" (17cm) at the base.
  • Wash Instructions: Machine wash cold with mild detergent. Hang to dry.
  • Designed and 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.

Must needed Jacket Extender!

First off, customer service was amazing! Perfect communication and gave me a heads up that I was double buying a piece for the universal jacket extender. I didnt know that that the set up already came with the extra piece. I was so happy that I found this option so my preggo belly would fit in this amazing jacket that my husband got me for christmas! Well worth the money and you wont regret buying this item!


Universal fit is great. The only thing is, it's still loose even with the plastic things added to each end. Every time I put it on I have to reajust one side. The warmth is great. The different possible ajustments are great. Overall quite happy.


Universal Jacket Extender

Happy with my purchase!

I love this product! I am so happy with it, so far I’ve only tried it on one of my jackets. The universal zipper is very easy to install. I’m giving this a 4/5 star review as I am disappointed that I wasn’t able to use the universal zipper with my jacket that has a metaluxe zipper and they didn’t have any adapters that fit my jacket. I hope that a work around is in the works for future versions.

Jacket extender and carrier insert

This is the coolest invention! My son was comfortably cozy in his carrier and I was protected from the elements. I love that I can switch jackets dependent on the weather but still be able to baby wear close to me. I received so many compliments from my mom group.

The only changes that I can envision is making it longer, I am 5'10" so my jackets are on the longer side and the extender zipper sleeves do not run the entire length of the zipper. It is not an issue with baby wearing as I do not fully zip up, but if I wore the extenders to create a maternity jacket, I would prefer a longer length.

I would also love to see an additional accessory for the baby wear component. Although there is a removable fleece liner, it would be great if there was an even warmer option removable liner.

All and all great product and I will be recommending it to friends who are expecting and who love baby wearing.
