The only problem I actually have with this parka is, in fact, aesthetic – regarding the big hood. When you put it on your head, it looks really, really ugly (sorry, but it does). While it may be functional and the elastic hem may compensate for the lack of unnecessary cords, the wearer looks like a seal, in my opinion (or a speedskater, according to the colour of the soft-shell). On the other hand, it possesses one ingenious detail – it is not detachable (which is normally an aspect I cry about in any other babywearing piece of clothing with the possibility to wear on the back – the wearie gets slapped by the hood!) but you can roll it and fasten it with a stud behind your neck! How simple and functional – just great! Moreover, you do not need to worry about the idle half of zipper after detaching the hood (if it is not covered) which does not look very nice and tends to pull the wearer’s hair.
