The innovative foot straps that are attached to the waist belt keep older children comfortable in the Boba Baby Carrier. They enable a healthy sitting position by supporting the legs in a flexed abducted position which naturally tilts the pelvis, fills out the hip sockets and aligns the spine.

The Boba Baby Carrier is approximately 2-3" higher than other soft structured carriers.

All straps are fully adjustable, and elastic bands are provided so you can comfortably tuck the straps away once you have the carrier adjusted for you and your child. 
Made responsibly in China.

What we say about it...

The Boba 3G is a fantastic carrier. It has so many great features I don't know where to start.  

I love the foot straps and the system they are on.  The hook the straps attach to is on a covered wire (for lack of better explanation) system.  It slides along depending on where your child needs the straps placed.  It is such a great system I LOVE IT... This system is used on the carrier in various places which makes adjusting the hight of different buckles super easy to do.

The material is strong and well made.  It is thick and durable what you would expect in a carrier of this price point.  The hood is so well made it is too thick in my opinion for when you want to store it away or those babies that run hot.

I love the straps and the ease of use.  I am able to adjust them without having to take the carrier shoulder straps off.  Even the back strap is easy to use. Again on that hidden wire system that they have utilized.  

I tested the carrier out on a 3 hour straight hike with no stops and found my back was perfectly fine in the end.  I could have gone longer which was great.  I love how my son feels in the carrier, very secure and wrapped around me as opposed to some I have tried on which leave me feeling like his legs are fighting for space with mine. 

The pocket on its waist strap is small and quite useless other than for maybe a coffee card or small wallet.  The Hood is detachable which I don't like because I tend to lose things.

The padded straps are well done.  They are thick enough without being too overwhelming.  I can't attest to the feel of this in weather above 10 degrees at present and will adjust the blog if I get a chance to test it in the heat.

Overall we would recommend this carrier to new parents.  It isn't perfect so it won't get a 5 star rating but it came pretty close.  Because of the low back and not so ease of use for the sun cover It gets a 4 but close to a 4 1/2.... I'd love to find the 5 star carrier if you think you have it send it my way.
