So you’ve checked out the DVD/Download and know what you like the look of and what you think might work for you.

Now which brand do you buy?

We’ve attempted to be reasonably brand impartial so as not to support one brand over another. However people are often asking our advice on what to buy.

We’ve created some information on a number of carrier brands commonly available in New Zealand (and therefore many other countries too!) to help you decide what to buy. Although some are available in stores around the country, many of the better designs are found in online stores.

Click on each carrier type to find out about the brands:
