We purchased this for our daughter when she was 7 months old to keep her warm while we enjoy activities in our cold Alaska weather. We bought a bigger size and added extra clothes and never had a problem with her getting cold. When camping in cold weather we put it on her as her sleeping bag. Overall we would buy this product again and recommend it to any active parents who are seeking to keep their little one nice and warm. The only downfall I can come up with is that its not waterproof but you would not expect it to be either so just add a layer on the outside that is resistant to the snow and you will be golden.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
