Are Buckle Me Baby Coats compatible with car seats?
Buckle Me Baby Coats have been crash tested at an independent University crash test facility where they not only outperformed traditional puffy coats but also tested similarly to no coat at all! The coats have been evaluated by CPSTs who give them two thumbs up! Interested in seeing our crash test footage in action? Click here: https://youtu.be/o4LkFnoj6v4
Have Buckle Me Baby Coats been evaluated by Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs)?
We collaborated with local New Hampshire Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs), firemen, and first responders who physically examined the coat and found it to be a safer option to the puffy winter coat and similar to no coat.

What's the difference between Toasty, Toastier, and Toastiest?Toasty is our original car seat coat design with a lower neckline than the other coats for little ones who don't like how things feel on their neck.Toastier and Toastiest provide more coverage for the neck and head against harsh, whipping winds. Toastier and Toastiest also have extendable sleeves for longer wear across seasons.Toastiest has a fully removable magnetic hood and a thicker warmer sherpa liner as well as Made in US designer flannel in the back.Any choice would work wonderfully at keeping your little love toasty warm and safely dressed for the car seat all at the same time!
What if there is a car accident, the car is on fire, or submerged in water. Will the coat delay getting my child out?
The coat has been evaluated by first responders who found that the coat does not slow rescue efforts should the worst happen. In the event of an emergency the car seat is cut out of the car with the child still strapped in to keep them stable. However, the coat does not slow down the process – check out how long it takes to get out of the car seat with our coat on (Spoiler Alert: 10 seconds): https://youtu.be/VQkMQVgqwKA
Will my child be too hot in this coat?
The panel can be rolled to the side to keep little ones from overheating in the car. If your child usually wears a coat or blanket in the car they will find the Buckle Me Baby Coats comfortable too.

How warm is the coat ?
Temperature ratings in winter coats are a bit of a marketing gimmick. As a one Mama startup I make a promise that is true – this coat is crash tested and designed to be safer than traditional coats and can be used with the same harness setting as no coat at all without adjustments.
With all that just because I don’t give exact ratings doesn’t mean we don’t make super warm jackets. There is one simple rule that determines how warm a jacket is: thickness equals warmth. Which is why our coats are stuffed with 1.5 inches of thick warm coziness. You may notice that other coats LOOK puffier but what you don’t know is that most coats are sewn with baffles (like pockets) then the insulation is blown in giving it a puffy look but the actual coat itself isn’t very thick (that's why when you throw it in the washer it totally flattens out).
Buckle Me Baby Coats are designed with a sheet of insulation that is hand quilted in giving the coat even warm cozy coverage all over.
