What is a Full Buckle Carrier?

A Full Buckle Carrier typically has a waist belt and shoulder straps with buckles to secure each section and a ‘body panel’ to seat your baby in.

What is the Slider-Cinch?
A simple tunnel of material slides over the padded waistband allowing for quick adjustment for newborns and little children, even as your little one sits in the carrier. No need to fiddle with snaps, buckles or zips!
