I really like this carrier, it is a good compromise between a SSC and a wrap. I use it for both front and back carries. The weave is smooth and tight so it's durable and supportive. The fabric is nice and soft, since it is cotton it is easy to care for. It is also thin and moldable which makes it easy to get a great carry and my son doesn't overheat in it. The only issue is the hood, the ties are short and the anchors for it are way too low. I wound up adding additional anchor points so that it will actually fit over my son's head. Other than that it is great.
