I agree the zip keeps getting caught in the lining when doing it up.
The sleeping bag does keep bubs warm but transferring him a sleep into the pram and trying to get the zip up without him waking up is what annoys me.
And the sleeping bag seems to ride down the pram making it hard to clip baby in.
I'll only be using this during winter!
We loved it
We live in Melbourne so this bag was great when our little one was little and it kept her super snug. We did get a lot of envious comments. Ours was part of the package though so I don't think I would have paid extra to buy it separate unless I found a good second hand one. We really, really love it in winter though.
Super snuggle. Kept bubs very cosy in cold weather.
I wouldn't buy it again
In theory, it's a good idea but in practice it doesn't live up to the idea. It does do the job it's intended for i.e. keeping bub warm, comfortable and protected but the quality is terrible! The zip sticks, and constantly catches on the material, tearing the material. The whole thing slides around and makes it difficult to put bub in the pram. The holes where the straps are fed through are not reinforced enough and become ratty from the bag sliding around. Aesthetically, the colours are quite dull; a bit boring. I'm lucky that I managed to only...pay $71 for it rather than RRP $89.95 but it's still way overpriced for what you get. If I had my time again, I'd look around for a universal sleeping bag that fits the pram. Keeps bub warm especially in colder climates, catches toys Terrible quality, Difficult to use, Expensive,
When we are out and about everyone comments on this great sleeping bag. If you own a Mountain Buggy and have cold winters I would absoloutley recommend this product. When going for walks in winter I don't need to worry whether my baby is warm enough.
Keeps baby fantastically warm and snuggled. Fits perfectly into pram and safe to use because it still allows baby to be strapped in. Unlike pram rugs she can't kick it off. Top flaps can be buttoned down so baby can still play with pram toys.
A bit expensive but worth the money if you use it. Have to be careful zipping as it would be easy to catch zip in liner.
It's a good sleeping bag. I worried that my sons were too warm in Australian winter in it though, so it didn't get used as much as I thought it would, I instead opted for a home made polar fleece version. I passed my comments on to Mountain Buggy (now Phil & Teds) but they don't have the best record for customer service, so I wouldn't expect any change to this item soon.
Buy 2nd hand if you can and you won't be disappointed.
Good quality. Very warm.
Would like different colour choices. Way too warm for Australia. Probably would benefit from a choice of weights for warmer climates. I'd like some extra attachment to the stroller at the top of the bag (same with the mountain buggy liner as well - they slip down). Over priced.
Much better than I would have expected. It came as part of the package when we bought the buggy and at $90 (or so) I wouldn't have bought it seperately. That is until I now know how good it is!! Super warm and snuggly and the envy of all other pram owners!
warm, keeps bubs well snuggly in pram and catches all the toys/bottles/socks and shoes she lets go of!
Even though the straps feed through there is nothing to keep it in place and as the outside is sleeping bag material it slides down in the buggy a bit and by the time you put bubs in you need her head is above the top.
Keeps bub comfy and snug
Our Swift didn't come with any liner, so when we converted from the bassinet to the sit-up pram, the back where the straps are seemed hard and unkind for a little bub's head. I investigated liners, but was recommended this sleeping bag by a friend as it avoids slipping blankets as well as keeping socks and toys in the pram. Plus being in Melbourne the weather is unpredictable at times, so getting a lot of use out of it even though I bought it just before spring. Also, asked other mum's online how long they used it for - they said its great for...toddlers too, so possible use will be a few years. It was the same price as a liner, so thought it was a good price as it doubled as rugs as well. you can zip off the front part of the sleeping bag leaving just a liner / base. Although it seems pricey, I'm glad I bought it as it makes it so much easier to just dash out the door no matter what the weather is and know bub is going to be protected and cosey incl. for naps on the run. Warm, protects bub from wind and cold weather. Don't need to dress bub in heavy coats and more layers. Provides a bit of comfort within the hard shell of the pram, especially for bub's head. Top of sleeping bag can zip off to leave a liner only. Didn't realise it was made from Polyester until after purchasine. This can make baby sweat in warmer weather. The way the bag is made the fabric gets stuck in the zipper, so you can't do it up with one hand, a bit frustrating and fiddly. Also, similar to what other reviewers stated it slides around alot, needs a better way to fit to pram as I need to always pull bag up when bub is placed inside. A bit pricey and annoying that MB didn't include a liner when initially purchased.
