Quinny Zapp Xtra Footmuff
Advantages: Warm, waterproof, works as designed.
I'm a big fan of quinny pushchairs and whilst there are a few niggles with the current zapp xtra, I love the accessories you can purchase to use with them. This footmuff has been a dream to use and we often get comments about how snug our little one looks.
We bought our zapp second hand and purchased a new zapp xtra seat so we have the smaller version for holiday and the recliner version for every day use. The second hand zapp came with the footmuff in a little carry bag and still looked like new despite the owner saying they'd used it for their two little girls for the previous 3 years - what an advantage! This shows the quality of the footmuff right from the beginning and it still looks amazing now.
I'd seen a few people say how fiddly the footmuff was to attach to the buggy but we had no such problems. Remove the shoulder strap pads, thread it through, popper on and away you go. I've had a variety of pushchairs over the years and I have to say this is the best footmuff in terms of staying in position. Various others have slipped down, straps have come out and my daughters have simply caused havoc with but I haven't experienced any of this with the quinny.
The footmuff itself looks more like a sleeping bag though if I'm perfectly honest with the usual cosytoes bit at the bottom and a nice big hood over the top that protects them from the wind and really does keep them very warm. I live in the North of Scotland so this is a big advantage for us as the winds are bitter and the weather can be atrocious and other cosytoes just don't seem to protect their heads or upper body at all. It zips down at both sides and the top of the cosytoes can be easily folded down for smaller babies. It also has toggles around the hooded part so you can pull it closer round their heads or loosen it off if needed.
One of the problems I've had with the zapp xtra is with the raincover blowing off very easily in the wind so I've now stopped using it for the most part in windy conditions as the cosytoes seems to be completely waterproof and dries very quickly afterwards. You can't say this for many others!
It is very pricey and I've seen it retail for anywhere between £40 and £60 but it's definitely worth every penny. Ours came with the pushchair at a bargain price so it's always worth looking around for second hand ones.
Overall, I'd recommend this to anyone and everyone. It's quite a universal fit on it and I know it's compatible with the zapp, zapp xtra and the quinny buzz so I'm sure it would fit other pushchairs too. It takes the worry away from me wondering if my lo is too cold when it's -6C outside and I can't complain about that.
Summary: Definitly worth every penny to protect your little one from the elements.
