Will Gardnerwrote a review of Joules Baby Everly Waterproof Snowsuit - Infant Girls' on June 29, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Typing away at the home office, I see the UPS guy pull up. Dog lets out a lazy bark. My heart elevates slightly. Is this for me? I slyly lurk over my monitor - but not like to much cuz I don't want him to see me in case he is coming to my house. Don't want that awkward moment where I am obviously home watching him deliver a package but still not answering the door.
He exits the truck and makes a commanding step in the direction of my house. Now light anticipation jumps to downright giddy excitement. Meanwhile dog recognizing this approaching intruder also elevates her barking game. I quickly contain my excitement and hurriedly look back at my computer while also throwing in a slightly over exaggeratedly head bob - like I am listening to music and can't possibly hear what everyone else in the neighborhood hears - my dog going down right bat poop crazy. But then the barking drops a level and I hear a diesel engine engaging. The coast is clear.
Like a lion spotting a weak and aged gazelle I dash for the door. Latching on to the package, I quickly identify that it's not some junky present from gramps and gran for my kids. Seeing my name I pounce. Bubble wrap flying I faintly question if I even ordered anything lately. The question is answered practically before it is formed. The pastel blue snowsuit covered in flowers is about 10 times to small for me. UGH a present for my baby. So defeating.
Where is this going - nowhere. Let's face it, I'm kind of grasping at straws here. It's summer now, It's a baby snowsuit and I am a male which kind of makes me a bad judge of kids clothes (according to my wife). But said baby who is the recipient of the snow suit doesn't speak. She eats, poops, waddles, and makes messes. So lacking in the ability to form a coherent enough of a sentence that could aid in the formulation of a proper review I am forced to step in as an outsider looking in. With that said I can offer some basics; the snow suit is really bomber in terms of construction. Really well insulated and the exterior hardshell material is nice and waterproof. Good for snow, water and the mass amounts of food that is initially aimed at her mouth but ends up everywhere else. The winter was kind of weak in New England this year but I did get a lot of riding in with babe - I just throw her in one of those kid trailers and pound away at the quads. Even in temps dipping into the low 30's she was always happy and warm in the snow suit. When we did finally get snow the suit totally kept her warm and dry.
A note of size. My wife and I produce peanuts with massive heads. My youngest daughter being no exception was in the lower range of kids for her age and as such the suit 12-18m was a bit big for our 12-18 month old child. We are pretty confident that even next winter at 18-24m the 12-18 will still fit her.
