love these but they are pricey at 68.00 - anyone seen similar for cheaper - seen one in Primark for 10.00 but didn't like it that much.

I have got the longer version from Gap for £88 but it is so warm, like walking round in a quilt.

Expensive but it is down filled and I think you get what you pay for. Will last me for years! And I am warm and dry when pushing the buggy about.

I blame Foxinsocks for posting that they had them and therefore forcing me to go in and buy it.

think I might just have to splash out and buy it.

I'm terminally lazy - can anyone post a link? thanks so much

bagpussmice · 09/11/2005 14:49


not sure if this will work - never done a link before! in UK they only do them in brown and black I believe - I've only seen those colours anyway

Thanks! Will go and have a look now!

Oliveoil! I saw a mum in one today at school and while I was in my very unattractive cagoul type thing, she looked very nice and warm and completely protected from the rain.

dd has one but it was 'only' £50 - pink, cream ultra soft fleecy lining, fur trimmed hood.

its lovely

sorry you mean grown ups ones

bagpussmice · 11/11/2005 10:13

i bought one yesterday... it's fab and very warm!
the hood is detachable and so is the fur around the hood - so versatile!!!!!! I love it!

The website describes it as 'quilted polyester' with no mention of down. I think it should be down filled not polyester wadding to justify the price. I have a down filled body warmer from Jack Wills which is incredibly toasty but I would be hesitant to spend that much on a synthetic one.
Those who have one - what does the label say?

the trick with the kid's ones is to get them in the sale towards the end of winter - you have to take a guess at your child's size for next winter but I suppose if you get it wrong, you could flog it on Ebay. I got both mine for around £25 at the end of last winter. They go on sale without fail every year.

bagpussmice · 11/11/2005 17:41

the label says for the filler:
down 80%
feathers 20%

thank you bagpussmice - I think I'll have to go and try one on now! (plus I have a 20% off voucher ).
I am determined to be warm on the school run in this harsh winter we're supposed to be getting.

have just gone on the Boden website to compare with their winter warmer jacket and am shocked by the price. For starters it's crap in comparison (no hood) plus it's £125! I've just checked last years catalogue (which I'd kept!) and it was 'only' £99. I can't believe they've increased the price by £26!! It'll definitely be Gap for me...
