Traditionally, safety experts recommend that winter coats are removed before putting a child in a car seat. Bulky winter coats compress under the car seat straps in the event of a crash - interfering with the seat’s ability to meet FMVSS 213 standards.
The Quimby Coat Children's Car Seat Coat is a winter safety coat and vest in one. It uses patented technology that allows it to be worn safely while a child is in a five-point harness car seat. Its smart 2-in-1 design allows the vest to be easily added or taken off as needed without taking off the coat in more serious weather conditions.
What does this mean?
The Quimby Coat was developed by former firefighter and EMT, Jamie Wallace, who has been a certified car seat technician for 11 years. As a car seat technician, she often advised parents not to put children in the car seats with their coats on as this prevents the car seat to do its job properly.
