Traditional Onbuhimo vs. Buckle Onbuhimo
Posted on May 24 2016
What's the difference between a Traditional Onbuhimo and a Buckle Onbuhimo? And what is a Ring Onbuhimo?
A 2Lambie Buckle Onbuhimo has shoulder straps that connect to the base of the carrier panel with smooth webbing and is adjustable via ladder-lock buckles.
A 2Lambie Buckle Onbuhimo also features a ring closure chest belt as a pretty alternative to a black webbing and buckle chest belt. We like the little extra bling the rings provide.
At 2Lambie the Traditional Onbuhimo is synonymous with Ring Onbuhimo (not to be confused with ring closure chest belt shown above). The 2Lambie Traditional Onbuhimo is an onbuhimo with wrap strap shoulders (instead of webbing and ladder-lock buckles) and dual rings at the base of the carrier panel. The duel rings provide instant grip for easy seat adjustments and tie-off.
The wrap straps design is referred to as "traditional" because early onbuhimo designs from Japan used flat straps for tie-off and adjustment with fabric loops (and later ring designs) where the double rings are on the 2Lambie Traditional Onbuhimo.

Hi Jackie, We can’t alter another manufacturers design. It couldn’t be tested and therefore wouldn’t be CPSC compliant.
If I have a Didytai and want to convert it to a traditional onbu, could I send it to you to just convert the bottom waist straps to have the double rings on each side?
