Here at Kindercarry, we listen to our customer needs with two styles of carriers. We offer a Full Panel (or full print fabric) option during the cooler months and a Koolnit breathable mesh is offered during the warmer months. 

Our full panel design is what some people think of traditionally when they think of Soft Structured Baby Carriers. Kinderpack has a unique design to set us apart from the competition. The contouring 3-panel design! This special design allows us to switch out the center panel with 2 layers of supportive mesh, or Koolnit.

Another major difference between the two styles is the included hood. On our Koolnit Kinderpacks (pictured above) you have a flat hood, which acts as a head support and shade for a sleeping child. (all the children in the picture above are sleeping soundly!) The hood on the full panels is very different. It is a hoodie hood, or aviator styled hood (pictured below), and is made from the same fabric print. It provides more full coverage and is warmer than the Koolnit hood. 

Many prints are available in BOTH Koolnit and full panel. Some, however, only come in Koolnit or alternatively in full panel. This could be due to the limited supply of fabric, wanting a print to be aesthetically pleasing while working around our 3-panel design. Both styles can be utilized any time of the year.


Choose Koolnit if :
  • You enjoy breathability. This may be because of a hot-natured child or because you are an avid hiker and need the extra airflow. 

Choose Full Panel if:
  • You might need the warmth of the extra layers provided by the hoodie hood tucked in the headrest pocket.
  • Aesthetically, You really love the print and want full coverage! 

So now that you know the difference, which is your favorite? Do you have a certain print you have been waiting on to return (or come out!) in full panel or Koolnit? Comment them below or email us at! And check out our selection of both full panels AND Koolnit Kinderpack's here!
