The dufflecoat is suitable for back and front carries, you can buy an additional pregnancy insert.
The outer material is wool, the lining is polyester. You can easily add the insert to the back or front by zipping it in.
If you put the insert in the back you need to close two straps to hold a cord from the insert, *check out my video for more information. You can use this cord to give your child more neck support once it’s asleep.
Sadly my girls didn’t fall asleep when the were on my back under the coat, so I couldn’t put it to the test. It seemed very practical and uncomplicated.
You can tuck this cord away if you’re using the insert for a frontcarry.
I love the front, but if you are using the coat for a frontcarry the typical toggle-fastenings are useless. The insert can’t be adjusted in the width, only at the neck support.
The insert has an extra collar to keep your child sheltered from the wind. The coat doesn’t have a hoodie for the baby. (and no hoodie for mama)
If you’re using it while wearing your baby in the front you can try to close your collar, with a bigger child in the front it was not possible, but with my younger daughter it was okay. Keeps the wind away from your chest & neck 🙂
I have tested a size M, I normally wear M/L or 38/40 (eu) and this size was perfect for me. With my toddler it bothered me a little bit that the tension on the coat made the sleeves feel shorter, but with my little girl everything was fine.
The wool is temperature regulating, it will keep you warm on colder autumn days. I think it will do great on mild winterdays and if needed just wear a extra longsleeve underneath on a freezing cold day. The coat is not very heavy, it’s surprisingly light and comfortable to wear. The length is great, I think it’s bicycle proof 😉
Without a baby you can wear this coat on your way to work. A dufflecoat is a classic design, a perfect neutral. I received some ‘compliments’ on how ‘serious’ and ‘mature’ I look with this coat. To be honest: not really my style 😉 but I can imagine some mamas will look stunning and very stylish in this coat.
The coat is available on junah.ch , the website isn’t translated yet but if you write an email they are willing to help 🙂
