The Boba Babywearing Vest is made from quality sports fleece. The Peekaru Vest, now known as the Boba Vest, is a fleece babywearing vest that zips over a soft baby carrier to keep you and your child warm. The Boba vest works great with all baby carrier types, including Maya Wrap Ring Slings*, the Ergo Baby Carrier, the Baby Bjorn, Moby Wraps or BabyHawk Mei Tai.
*Please note that the Boba Original should not be worn with a child in the cradle or side laying position, as your babies head needs to be out of the baby head opening in order to insure proper oxygen flow.
A babywearing vest is a warm compliment to any baby carrier.
The Boba babywearing vest can be worn alone or with a coat over it. You can add your rain coat, winter coat or even another babywearing coat over the Boba vest so you always have the perfect amount of warmth for the temperature. We believe the design provides the best compromise of warmth, ease of use, and style. Since the Boba Fleece is a vest, you can wear it in temperatures from 69 to about 40 alone, add a coat and you can wear it throughout winter in even the coldest climates. This versatility isnâ€™t possible if it has sleeves, as the sleeves would make it too warm for spring or fall and too bulky to layer over. The high quality sports fleece is surprisingly warm. On a warmer mid-winter day in Southern Ontario, we've been out and about in our baby carrier with only a hat, mitts, our Boba Vest and our baby heater (our daughter!), and we were fine to walk for over an hour.
It's EASY to use the Boba babywearing vest. With baby secured in your carrier of choice, simply put your head through the Boba vest top opening, your right arm through the right side opening, and baby's head through the front opening. Reach around to zip up the zipper, and you're set to go! The baby carrier vest can also be used with most back baby carriers. With baby on your back both safe and cozy, your hands are free to go about your outdoor activities.
Babywearing made warm - you and your baby will love the Boba Vest.
With sizes and colors for both women and men, the Boba vest (once known as the Peekaru Babywearing Vest) is a perfect accessory to your favorite baby carrier. You'll love the style, and your baby will love the comfort.
While the Boba Vest is PERFECT for cooler summer nights, or the family that enjoys camping together, limited colours and sizes may be available through the summer months. If you don't see the size or colour you are looking for, please let us know. We're happy to place a special order which can take about 2-3 weeks to arrive. Our largest in-stock selection is carried September through March. Happy Babywearing!
The Peekaru Original is available in standard woman's sizes, small, medium and large. Simply purchase your regular size, and the pleated seam and stretchy fleece will accommodate any size baby. If your shirt size is medium, a medium babywearing vest is right for you. Buy the size that best suits you, as the size of the child won't affect the fit.
Sizing for the Peekaru vest is as follows:
- Small (size 4-6)
- Medium (size 8-10)
- Large (size 12-14)
- XL (size 16-18) (special order, please inquire)
It is possible to size up/down for couples to share, since the function of the Peekaru doesn't change with size. If one parent doesn't mind the cover being a bit loose, and the other doesn't mind it being a bit tight, it should work out just fine. The sizing shown is women's sizing so we would recommend getting a size larger to fit both parents of varying sizes. It is often helpful to remember that whoever will be doing the majority of the carrying, should get the size that they are most comfortable in. We often want our husbands to carry the baby, but that doesn't mean they will choose to use a cover or baby carrier.
A great addition to a soft carrier Review by Casey

I used the Peekaru Vest with a Mei Tei carrier. They work great together. The vest is nice and cozy. I like that there aren't any places for cold drafts to get in so fingers and toes are always snug. The vest fits really well and isn't bulky but there's lots of room to fit baby in. (Posted on 7/8/10)Would you recommend this product to a friend? Without hesitation!
