Soft Structured Carriers and Full Buckles
Soft structured carriers (SSCs) and full buckles are worn like a rucksack, either on the front or back, with a buckled waist belt and adjustable shoulder straps. Many full buckles are handmade and unique.
This type of baby carrier is generally quick and easy to use, and comfortable. Some are not suitable for newborns, or require an insert, but many can be used from birth. Many manufacturers also make toddler and pre-school sizes.
Popular brands of this type of baby carrier are Ergo, Manduca, Patapum, Rose + Rebellion, Connecta, Boba, Beco, Tula, Hoppediz Bondolino, Babyhawk Oh Snap!, Wompat, Madame Googoo, Babies in Space, Huckepack, Olives & Applesauce, and more. In addition, unique full buckle carriers are made by many small businesses such as Opitai, Softai, Ocah, Kitten Creations, HuXling and Kimimela, among many others.
