What is a Podaegi?

Back Carry

Description

Traditionally, a rectangular "blanket" is attached to a long, continous strap coming out horizontally from the top corners of the "blanket." The blanket is wide enough to wrap around both the wearee and the wearer.

Good For
  • Front Carries: Good for all ages
  • Hip Carries: Not designed for hip carries.
  • Back Carries: All ages (for experienced wearers only)
  • Forward Facing: Not designed for forward facing.
Advantages

Simple, traditional construction. Cozy for colder weather.

Disadvantages

Less common carrier makes documentation on usage harder to find. Safety standards have not been created for podaegis, so no commercial podaegis exist that pass current carrier safety testing.

Sizing

One size fits most. Total combined strap length should be somewhere between the wearer's "base size" wrap (the length needed in a wrap to do front wrap cross carry) and a base-2, so plus size wearers may occasionally need slightly longer straps.
