Easy Feels Standard size SSC review

Easy Feel's ssc is suitable for 15-44lbs/7-20kgs AND older than 4 months (that means that you have a 16lb 3mo, you need to wait!) it's a nice carrier at a nice price (about $90 aud for a standard, which you can see here in these pics and $105 for a toddler size) and comfortable way beyond it's budget pricetag. Made in India, each carrier comes with it's own stuff sack for easy storage and is labelled inside waistband in accordance with BCIA safety standards.

I am super pleased with this carrier. Maybe my favorite thing is that, lacking shoulder strap clips, it's easy t get on and simple to adjust quickly. It cinches down to a teeny 53cms on the shoulders and 70cms/28inches on the waist belt.

We took this on a walk of a couple kms and I was impressed. Yes, I would be more comfortable with Audrey supported knee to knee (this is the standard size, and she is close to the upper weight limit), but this is a great carrier that was easy to fit and didn't require a lot of fussing. It's one downside is that the straps aren't crossable,  but they cinch down so well that I don't think that's a deal-breaker.

I can actually get a snug back carry in this and feel like Audrey isn't sagging away from me - a lot of shoulder straps are just a little too long for my short torso and then I have to overtighten the chest strap, boo sucks etc. The Easy Feel is really forgiving and allows plenty of tweak.

One handy pocket on the waistband to replace your hip pocket...and velcro closure for security.

Perfect fit adjusters (these were great when using the carrier with my 8kg demo doll) to get a snug fit of body panel and no gape at the top.

The standard size body panel measures 36 cms in the seat and features leg padding. Obviously Audrey is no longer knee to knee in the seat, but she said it was comfortable and was happy to stay up while we walked to the shops.

I like this! There's a nifty concealed pocket in the body of the carrier that lets you roll the sleep hood and velcro shut so it's nicely tucked away and invisible.

Don't forget the stuff sack!
