Do you love your buckle carrier but overheat in the warm weather? Are you travelling somewhere for a sunny holiday? Have you never carried before but need a quick option for adventuring in the heat? We can help! Here’s a round up of cool buckle carriers with features that can help you keep your cool in hot weather. Check out our summer carrying advice for staying safe and cool when carrying in the heat.

Integra baby carriers

Integra baby carriers are light weight with little bulky padding. This means even their standard print versions are pretty cool, however, they all have solar weave versions made from UV reflective fabric, making carrying in these buckle carriers really cool on the hottest day.

  • Look for either the cotton prints or the Solar version of the carrier
  • Cotton prints are one of the thinnest carriers out there
  • Solar Integra are made from thin UV resistant fabric which is very breathable
  • Folds down very small for easy storage
  • Simple and easy to use
  • Features crossable straps and an unstructured waist
  • Suitable birth (no insert required) to 2+ years in Standard size and available in Toddler and Preschool size

We have size 1: baby sized, birth to 18 months; size 2: toddler sized, 18 months to 3 years; and size 3: 3 to 4 years and beyond available to hire from our online sling library, in both standard cotton prints, and in the summery solar weave versions.
