Actually, I think it is brilliant! I always threw Lucas in the front carrier in the winter just to get out of the house and go for a walk when it was 20 F out. I put a HUGE zip up around us so that he would be warm even in his snow suit. It was the only way for me to get a few outside chores done on the farm and save my sanity. I'm sure I looked pretty weird but hey, with having 33 acres no one saw me anyways.
