Boba 3G Soft Structured Baby Carrier Review

Now that my girls are older, I’m a Soft Structured Carrier (SSC) junkie. Zoë weighs about 35 pounds and Kaylee weighs around 25 pounds, but I still wear them both (and so does Brian). I have heard a lot about Boba carriers over the last few years, so I was excited to get to try a Boba 3G carrier.

The first thing I noticed when I put Kaylee in the Boba 3G carrier was how comfortable it is. It’s made from 100% cotton, and it has just enough give to where I feel like it conforms to her shape and makes her feel extra snuggly. The material is very lightweight (not much padding), so it’s not a bulky carrier at all, which is great for short trips to the store or a jaunt down to the park.

We took a trip to Costco a couple weeks ago to return our vacuum (that burnt out after only a few months) and Kaylee was out like a light in the Boba. I had taken the hood out of the carrier to make it even easier to transport, but was definitely wishing I had it that day!

However, I do love that that the hood is removable, and that you can store it in the small zippered pouch when you’re not using it (or you can use the pouch for storage if you detach the hood).

There’s another small zippered pouch on the waistband as well. Just enough storage for my phone, keys and a small wallet.

One thing that did concern me at first was the fact that there isn’t an extra security loop to catch the waist buckle if it comes undone. But that concern was quickly alleviated because they buckle is very strong, military grade in fact. I had a little difficulty getting it snapped at first, but I’d rather that than have it easily pop open!

There is one feature I haven’t tried yet, but really want to – the foot straps. We’re in the middle of packing to move, so somehow they must have gotten misplaced in the midst of the chaos. I really think Kaylee would like having a place to rest her feet when she’s on my back for extended periods of time. And I like that they are designed to keep your child’s legs in the flexed abducted (froglike) position, which will naturally tilt the pelvis, fill out the hip sockets and align the spine.

There’s also a nifty shoulder strap holder on each side to keep your purse or diaper bag in place. I can think of many times when that would have come in handy!

The Boba 3G Carrier is designed for babies and children that weigh 7 to 45 pounds, and can be used for both front and back carry positions. And while I haven’t tried this, it converts to an infant carrier without an insert – I thought that was a neat feature.

It’s also made to fit parents of every size and shape without the need to purchase an extension belt or accessory. It should comfortably fit people of heights 5’0” to 6’3” with a waistband range of 25” to 58”. Additionally, all straps are fully adjustable, and there are elastic bands so you can tuck the straps away once you have the carrier adjusted for you and your child.

Overall, the Boba 3G is a great carrier that will get plenty of use in our house. I’ll use it mostly for short trips where I don’t need a lot of storage, but don’t want to carry around a bulky carrier – like our walks to the park.

Boba also offers a Boba Wrap ($48), a great carrier for babies from birth until around 18 months, and the Boba Air carrier ($65), an ultra lightweight and ergonomic carrier ideal for travelers and parents on the go.

I LOVE our 3G! I’m currently using it to carry my 3 week old. It’s easy to adjust for an infant and she seems to like it!

I have a Boba wrap and I like it so much better than the Moby, but I have never used the 3G. Now that our little one is getting bigger I will have look into getting a structured carrier. This looks like a good option, thanks!

Great review. We have the Boba 2G (basically the same, but it doesn’t have any of the pockets, which would be so handy for storing a wallet, keys and cell phone!). My husband and I LOVE it. Needless to say, my daughter does too otherwise we wouldn’t be using it so often. Like your daughter, mine sleeps great when in the Boba. It’s actually our emergency go-to solution when we can’t otherwise get her down for a nap in her crib. We love our Boba so much I actually just ordered the Boba Air to use as a travel carrier.

My FAV!! I want this one so bad! I LOVE how great the toddler looks in it as my daughter is nearly 3. Also I really like the feet straps. My daughter can kick me when wearing her. I think they would really help!

Love the foot straps on this carrier. I still back carry my 4 year old, and if it’s at night and she falls asleep her legs sometimes swing all about. I think those would come in handy.

We love our Boba 3G. My daughter was a very tall and big baby so this was one of the only carriers that would accommodate her length when she was little. It has been all over with us and we have done tons of hiking with it. I have found it so comfy and love the little extras they thought of like the clip to hold the diaper bag on your shoulder and the little change/key pocket on the waistband.

We love our Boba. It is one of our favorite carriers. And the thing about storage is they also have a boba pack that is like a diaper bag that hooks right on the carrier. It is great for little day trips for us!! WE love how secure it feels and it is something my husband doesn’t mind using either

This is my favorite carrier. We have one and LOVE it! I need to try the back carrier position, though…something to do!

We LOVE our Boba-I used it pretty much every day from when my son was a year old until he was 2 and just too heavy for me (I’m only 5’2″) and my husband still uses it sometimes even though our son is 3!

This one looks supportive. We live on an organic farm with crop and animals and I have TONS of chores. With 5 kids and 1 on the way in early November I am in the market for a good carrier. I have been reading your reviews and they all look awesome. Which ones do you think would be best for my situations. I am a baby wearing mama and keep them close to me all day.

157 Chrystal August 9, 2012 at 9:12 am

If you’re working outside in the heat, either the Onya Baby Outback style or the ERGObaby Performance carrier since they are more breathable. And you need to try the back carry! It’ll make your life much easier.

I love our Boba 3G!! I use it for both my kids – not at the same time :)
I leave the hood attached but rolled up and secured with the little elastic loops on each end and then the pocket is still somewhat usable. it just cant be zipped. but things can still be put in there – just remember to take them out before taking the boba off – or the things will fall on the ground.
My cell phone fits especially well in the pocket on the waist band.
Wonderful Review!!

I really like this one. It looks to be sturdy all over, and comfortable for the wearer. Those wide straps (kind of like a backpack) seems like it would really help take the strain of off your back. This may be better for younger children because it may constrict movement from an older toddler. But all in all I really do like it ;)

I really do like this baby carrier. It’s one of my favorites, and that says a lot considering I have quite a bit of experience in the soft structured baby carrier world. I’ve already put the word out to my friends and family that the Boba 3G would make an excellent Christmas present for me and my daughter!

I love the foot straps! Instead of the babies feet just dangling you can put them securely in the straps. This will probably prevent occasional kicks every now and then.
