Are we REALLY keeping our children ‘car safe’?

As a parent, car seat safety is always a key priority. Whilst we carefully research the correct seat for our child, recent events have sparked awareness of an often overlooked part of keeping our children safe whilst travelling.

Children wearing winter coats whilst strapped in can lead to grave consequences in the event of an accident.

Common questions about the ROAD COAT®

Who created the ROAD COAT®

The ROAD COAT® is the brainchild of husband and wife team, Eric and Sabine Beysel. With their combined professional experience of working with some of the world’s largest sportswear brands and as parents, they created the One Kid brand in 1999 and the revolutionary ROAD COAT®. Since its initial launch in July 2016, Eric and Sabine have worked tirelessly to raise awareness of safe childrens travel and have created 4 variations of the original ROAD COAT®. Read more from Eric and Sabine here.

Is THE ROAD COAT® compatible with car seats?

Absolutely. The ROAD COAT® has been fully crash tested by an independent crash test lab and reviewed by a renowned national expert in the field of child passenger safety. In addition, a certified instructor for both the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration has provided their full approval of THE ROAD COAT® for use with car seats.

To be clear, the ROAD COAT® is compatible with car seat use. The ROAD COAT® tested similarly to no other coat on the market.

How does the ROAD COAT® work? Is there any fabric between my child and the harness?

The ROAD COAT® features a thin front inner layer that eliminates the puffy outer layer from being between the car seat harness and your child. This enable the harness to lay flat and snug against the chest, as recommended by car safety authorities. A unique split collar construction allows the harness straps to pass to the front & lay flat on the shoulders, providing comfy, yet safer travel for children.

What about the back of the ROAD COAT®? Is that puffy too?

The back of the ROAD COAT® is constructed to be puffy, yet highly compressible. This leaves no excess fabric to create slack in the harness, keeping your child safer. In fact, you can adjust the harness with no coat on - put the coat back on and use the car seat with the coat without readjusting the harness again. (known as the pinch test)

What if there is a car accident, the car is on fire, or submerged in water. Will the ROAD COAT® delay getting my child out?

If your child is in an accident it is advised to remove the car seat with them in it until first responders get there to check them out for injuries. Removing the child with the coat on should not be any faster or slower than with any other article of clothing. (the outer zipperclosure is optional while in car seat)

Can I do the same with a normal coat?

The ROAD COAT® is engineered so the 5-point harness can pass to the front, which cannot be achieved safely with a regular coat.

Is the ROAD COAT® CPST (Car Passenger Saftey Technician) tested?

Yes. We have worked closely with several CPST’s and the ROAD COAT® is car seat safe.

What is the difference between the Down, Vegan & Transition ROAD COAT®'s?

The Down ROAD COAT® has a 80% down 20% feather insulation, front zipper closure, attached hood and a temperature rating of -25 Fahrenheit. / - 30 Celsius.
