The days are turning chillier, and autumn is on its way, so we were thrilled to be sent an Out’n’About footmuff for review. In a nutshell; we love it! It is super cosy and is a great size for both boys.
I don’t have an Out’n’About pushchair – this is a Nuna Pepp Luxx, but you can see that it is a great fit with it, thanks to the spacings in the cosytoes, which must fit almost universal 5-point harnesses. The footmuff has a zip-off panel, which leaves a lovely, soft pram liner for everyday use. It is very simple to zip the panel on and off in a hurry if you need to in sudden changes of temperature – if you go inside a warm shop, for example.
The liner is shaped, so that it sits in the pushchair properly, not just on top. That makes for a snuggly seat, and the liner comes up around the child, which provides a bit of shelter to the sides of the pushchair. The fabric feels very good quality – it’s thick and soft.
There are poppers on the side of the front panel, which allow you to either fold down the panel, to make it shorter, or you can press-stud it to the buggy liner section so that it makes a long, cosy, sleeping bag.
The front panel is shower-proof, which is so handy for autumn, when you know the rain will pass, or when you know it’s going to hoy it down and you better get the rain cover on the pushchair, pronto!
The top section has a velcro tab so that you can make it into a hood. Noah is just a teeny-tiny bit too tall for this feature. He’s 2’5″ and wearing 12-18m clothes (which fit). James can fit inside this cosytoes with it done up, but I wouldn’t let him try it outside because I didn’t want his dirty shoes muddying it up!
Another great feature is that I can still fold the buggy up with the footmuff on, and it isn’t so thick that it stops the chair from closing properly. Noah is lovely and warm when I take him out, ready to get in the car or back in the house, so I know he has had a nice time in the Out’n’About footmuff! As it gets colder I will be able to add more layers and he will continue to be cosy.
