Provides extra warmth through the cold months! - Jillian, Hants,

I have the extreme temperature jacket on both of my Cube coops. It provides warmth, protection, and peace of mind through the harsh winter months. It's easy to unzip to collect eggs and shake out the droppings tray. Highly recommend.

Peace of mind that the ladies are safe at night - Nicky, Hants,

It’s good to know the ladies are nice and warm at night now that they’ve finally learned to use the Eglu! Winters get pretty cold here so I wanted extra protection. It was a little disconcerting that the cover goes over the vents at first, but everyone is perfectly happy and there is no condensation inside. The cover also gives me a little extra peace of mind for stopping raccoons getting in as it covers the handles to the doors. I don’t think they’d open them but they sure tried one night, so an extra barrier is nice. Access to the nesting box is impeded, but I just unzip the back and go in from there.

Great idea.... - Annie-, Hants,

This "jacket" is a great idea but it was not well executed. We can't use the light sensor because it is covered. We can't access the egg door because it's covered. I have to unzip the whole back panel and take off the entire back door just to retrieve the eggs. Seems like Omlet didn't think this through.

Excellent - Yamaira, Hants,

I bought this a couple months ago because night time is very cold where I live. This product is very well made, I can tell this is going to last for long time.

Great for Cold Weather Areas! - Ashley, Hants,

Living in a place where our winters can get down in the negatives is nerve wracking when having chickens. This cover really makes a noticeable difference in temperature in the coop! Super easy to put on and love how it zips in the back for easy removal of the back panel.


Outstanding Jacket - Shannon, Hants,

We live in Connecticut and so the winters can be cold and snowy. We purchased the extreme temperature blanket and couldn’t be happier with it. Our ladies have been nice and toasty with the coop remaining at least 10 degrees warmer inside than outside. The zipper on the back makes for easy cleaning and to collect our eggs I only have to lift up one corner to access the nesting box door. We have had several snow storms in addition to rain and this blanket always stays dry. If your thinking about buying this, stop thinking and buy it! 100% worth it!

Extremely well made - Deana, Hants,

Have not used this jacket yet but it is extremely well made. I am impressed!


My Molting Ladies Stay Nice and Warm - Stephanie, Hants,

I have 2 Eglu coops, one with and one without an extreme jacket. I can tell you that all 4 of my molting hens head to the coop with the jacket every night, without fail. The temps have dipped into the high 20's recently and it makes me feel better to know that the jacket provides the extra insulation (without any moisture accumulating inside) to keep them warmer. It's easy to put on and take off to reach the egg door and the back hatch, too. I am purchasing another one for the other coop to prep for the long winter forecasted ahead.


Holding up.... - Joseph, Hants,

So far so good. I would say that it does a decent job in preventing drafts. My concern was moisture buildup, as it might be preventing the little ventilation there is. At times there was condensation between the coop and the blanket, but nothing on the inside of the coop. Please understand that this blanket does not generate heat....the chickens do. If four chickens (maximum I would put in the Eglu) spend the night there, that is the equivalent of a 40 watt bulb. Temperature differences between the coop and the outside have been at best a few degrees Fahrenheit.


High Quality Product - Could Have Been Even BETTER! - Kelly, Hants,

I love all things Omlet - My hubby thinks I am obsessed : ) Can I recommend this product? ABSOLUTELY! Its made with High Quality materials and it WILL keep things warm. (I snuggled in it while bingeing on Downton Abbey while my afghan was drying the other night and actually got HOT.) I am also more than confident that if Minnesota chickens are fine under this that Virginia chickens will DEFINITELY be! So why 4 stars and not 5? A design compromise - was it for the profit margin? The zipper on the back of the jacket DOES NOT allow for the back area to detach from the rest of the piece! So unless you zip it into the middle and then roll that into a cylinder and have it hang down the back of your Cube, you are in an all or nothing situation. Further, it has NO elastic in the back to allow for "snuggage" against the Cube. Is this a bad thing? Well it IS inconvenient and to my eye just looks tacky. But not tacky enough to return, because the quality of the item and the fact everything else about it is perfect outside of these two details makes me hum and haw and crease my brows but NOT put it back in the box. I was actually surprised at this situation because the lesser of the two jackets - (could it be termed a windbreaker?) has the snuggage factor in the back. I thought that Omlet had just added the back piece as fully removable to that one and sold it as a parka. But no - they didnt. Or I got the only flawed one! OMLET - Add a zipper that allows the back part to be sold separately AND makes the full jacket more pragmatic, and then you will capture all the market that doesn't have the money to buy the full jacket all at once, but can purchase in steps. It will mean profit for you in the long run and happy customers that don't have to buy 2 separate jackets so they can have what they want in insulative qualities for their Cube. Lastly, this version won't look tacky sitting in someones yard. (My solution - fortunately I sew so I am going to take mine apart, sew in a zipper that allows for the back to be fully removed, and sew in bungee cord to the back. Several hours work, but sometimes you just have to take the time....)
