5.0 out of 5 stars Great and versatile product, 30 Jun. 2013
I won one of these, it wasn't really what I was expecting as I hadn't had a look at it online or anything. It's essentially a mesh sheet so what's the crack?
We never used it...you know how the weather has been....no real need to.

However we have just had a holiday in Malta and this thing has been brilliant. OK one of the reviews say's it has a low UPF rating, but it doesn't say it is UPF50 so why would you expect it to be? As long as you are using adequate sun creams as you should be if it's a sunny day, that shouldn't be an issue.

The simplicity of this design is a winner. It fits on most buggies / prams, you just need to tie the tie strings appropriately to make the fit well. i.e. not dragging on the floor or getting caught in the wheels.
It gives the kid some shade which is great when the temp rockets or you are facing into the sun. It helps them sleep more comfortably and it means if they are awake they have some shade but can still see what is going on. What's not to like?

Because it's just a sheet though and not designed to fit a specific model buggy, you can also use it as a window shade in the car.
Just shut the hem in the top of the hire car door, hey presto your little one had some shade in the car. Very useful.
We also used it on the travel cot, which was next to a patio door, to reduce the early morning sunlight - and try and extend her sleep time.

All in all, very simple product, and very useful. Good work :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, won't last a year, 3 May 2013
When I forked out the cost of these Hunters I was expecting not just a great product but a better lifespan than your average wellie.
To be fair, they are a comfortable wellie. The fit is good, they are comfortable, the neoprene does it's job.
However after 10 months of not particularly heavy usage and being well maintained - dog walking mainly - they split on both wellies at the ankles. Wear and tear I can handle, but come on. These were probably used on average 1 hour a day for 10 months. At that rate, if you wore them on the farm or for any kind of work, you would be lucky to get 3 months out of them. My recommendation is pay a bit more for the French wellies, or half the price for Tayberry Rooks or something similar. At least if they fall apart after 10 months you wont feel like you've been ripped off.
