I LOVE this carrier. It is beautiful, well made and makes carrying my 23 pound 9 month old (in front or back carries) extremely comfortable. The fabric is on the thicker side but I find it breathable even in the hot and humid NJ summers. I haven't reached for my tula or woven wraps since I got this 2 weeks ago because it is so easy to adjust and fits great. My husband is also a fan. I think I'm a Soul convert!
