Blue Hibou Signature Buckle Carriers

 

The Blue Hibou Signature Buckle Carrier is composed of all buckles: shoulder buckles and waistband buckle. In other areas of the babywearing world, this type of carrier style is also known as the 'full buckle' or abbreviated as FB. Blue Hibou has two options for attachment of the waistband buckle: Single Adjust, where one side of the buckle is attached to the waistband and the other side is adjustable with one long length of webbing and Dual Adjust, where both sides are adjustable via long webbing lengths emerging from the padded portion of the waistband. 


STANDARD FEATURES:

Seat Darts: 

Every Blue Hibou Signature Buckle Carrier has ample seat darts for easier positioning and a roomy seat area for your little one.

Leg-Out Padding:

Blue Hibou Leg-Out Padding is second to none. Not only is it cushy foam, but its wrapped in blankety soft cotton to maintain its shape.

Sewn-In Flat Hood:

Each Signature Buckle Carrier comes with a Sewn-In Flat Hood. 


SHOULDER STRAPS:

The Blue Hibou shoulder straps are curved and generously padded with high density foam to provide long lasting cush. Ladder locks on the bottom of the straps provide easy adjustment on the fly. The top of the shoulders have Perfect Fit Adjusters (PFAs) so the caregiver can fine tune the strap length to their needs. And the icing on the cake is the easy adjust chest clip that slides along a webbing track, just another of the many features that make Blue Hibou Carriers adjustable for most body types.

WAISTBAND OPTIONS:

The HYBRID Waistband:

Completely unique to Blue Hibou Carriers! A truly Hybrid option, not as floppy a traditional floppy SSC waistband, but more flexible than firm closed cell foam waistbands. The Hybrid is built on alternating layers of canvas and cotton padding, formed into a 100% cotton pad that is inserted into the waistband itself. All the layers are completely top-stitched and quilted together, so there are no sliding layers and no bunching of padding. It is flexible enough to conform to your body right away, and with more use, becomes more and more form fitting to your waist, making it easier to get a tight fit. The natural cotton makes it far more breathable than foam padding. 

The Hybrid is the ideal waistband for 'wrappers', it gives a flexible, less structured feel to your SSC experience, allowing you to enjoy the soft feel of your wrap without feeling the stiffness of a closed cell foam waistband. 

Available for both Single Adjust and Dual Adjust 2" Buckles 

Fusion Waistband Example

The FUSION Waistband:

Developed by popular request of some die-hard Blue Hibou Carrier fans! (I listen to your requests!) The 'Fusion' is a combination of a 'Structured' and 'Lightly Padded' waistband: the center portion under the baby's bum is approximately 11" to 13" (depending on the size of the panel) of Stiff closed-cell foam padding. Then the sides of the waistband are lightly padded and quilted.

Anyone who has used a closed cell foam waistband knows they can be quite unforgiving at times. If you've experienced the waistband of your pants being 'pushed' down by the waistband of your carrier, you know exactly what I mean! This waistband makes it easier to get a tighter fit, thus preventing this from happening. Your baby's bum will inevitably sit deeper into the seat of the panel. 

This has fast become the most popular Blue Hibou Waistband option!

Available for both Single Adjust and Dual Adjust 2" Buckles

Single Adjust Buckle

Dual Adjust Buckle:

The standard option for Blue Hibou buckle carriers, the Dual Adjust allows for the buckle to be positioned anywhere along the webbing. Both ends have elastic loops to take up any additional webbing, keeping a tidy appearance. 

Single Adjust Buckle

Single Adjust, Padded Flap Buckle:

Using the same RockLok Buckle, this Single Adjust is anchored to the waistband on one end and adjustable via a long strap of webbing. A generously padded flap positioned under the buckle itself prevents it from digging into skin or hip bones!
