Hi all, I am considering getting a baby wearing hoodie or coat that is suitable for San Francisco. Any recs from Bay Area parents? Ideally something that you wear over a carrier (rather than the kind that is supposed to be used as a carrier on its own). Thanks in advance!

    We used an XL Dickies hoodie over a Moby wrap, and it worked like a charm... except for that time I got called in as a bomb-threat for being a 'bearded-man' with a lump under his coat. The kid however, was snug as a bug in a rug :)

    I always wore my coat/layers underneath then just took a blanket for my daughter to wrap around her if it was chilly. Didn’t think to get a big jacket!

    I bought a couple of cheap fleece zippered ones on aliexpress and they’re quite similar to the more expensive boba hoodie I also have ($10 vs $40). The thing I like most about boba is the pockets and the thumb holes though. I’ve seen other more substantial coat options but I think the hoodies are good enough for the weather most days. Exceptions are mostly concerning rain - there I’ll wear my usual rain attire and add a stroller/carrier blanket with water resistant layer.
