From the moment it arrived, which is as fast as they promise, it was easy and amazing to use. Once the fabric is threaded through the rings, you can put it om/take it off one handed while holding your baby. It's lightweight, so if you live in the south like me you won't be miserable. I love this sling, my daughter falls asleep in it every time! I wore her through the airport when she was one month old, all by myself and it was so easy, nice to have my hands, and makes for discreet and comfy nursing as well. The tail is long enough to pad the rings, support the neck, or use as a cover/sunshade but not so long that you would trip over it or get tangled in your legs. I love my soul ring sling!
